    Am I actually ignorant?

    Ok, this is the thing. I've recently "converted", if you will, to an atheist. My parents/family are all catholics. I was baptized as a child, and I still have a cross in my closet from that baptizing. So am I wrong to change religions on my family?

    The reason why I changed was simple. I need a logical explanation for everything. EVERYTHING. Say, for example, myself and a priest see a little shining light in the corner, I would need a logical explanation for it. Spark, flashlight, reflection, whatever. But the priest would look at that and go, "oh...perhaps it's a sign. Maybe jesus is showing us the way." I can't see the logic in that, so I choose not to believe it.

    And on T.V, you got pastors who simply put their full hand on a person's forehead, say "The power of God is flowing through your body" and this person is instantly cured of cancer in their lungs. It just simply doesn't make sense to me, so I cannot believe in it.

    It's not that I think it's fake, but until some miraculous thing happens to me, for instance I ACTUALLY SEE heaven, then yes, I'll believe after that. But until it does, I just can't believe in something, that to me, doesn't make sense.

    Now, what I'm asking is, Am I simply being ignorant? Should I have proper beliefs? Am I making a mistake by choosing not to believe in any religion at all?

    Thanks for any input you make.

    I dont think your being ignorant. its whatever you believe in. i too look mainly on the logical side of things..but i also look at the spiritual and religious side.
    example. religiously; god created universe. logically; big bang

    see what i mean?

    No duh, religion was created way back then for power and control over people. If you think about it peple were easily manipulated back then and if you made them think they would die and not be given a haven they would follow your orders. Such as fighting in the crusades. Then other people caught on to the idea and made up other religions, and here we are today

    well imao i think that there is a god or a superior being, and we don't know everything and we may not be able to comprehend everything. It's crazy how we are able to learn and discover new things but is there a limit to what we can understand? Seeing is believing but we don't know what's out there as well. You're not ignorant btw.

    EDIT some things may sound far-fetched, but isn't it strange how we exist as well? idk sometimes if i think about the big picture, the absolute big picture of things, it's just crazy.
