I guess there's no arguing with that really. I was just never really convinced by Christianity. My school from the ages of 5 - 8 practically taught it as a historical fact (something in hindsight I object to), but I was never really convinced by the idea. The main reason I am so strong in my (lack of?) beliefs is that I have seen plenty of evidence supporting scientific theories such as the big bang, but have never heard any real evidence supporting creationism beyond poking holes in the scientific theories which is not evidence for creationism, just evidence against that theory.
Perhaps it was blind faith at first- I was raised in the church. And really, blind faith isn't such a terrible thing to have, depending on how you think about it. However, just because I was raised that way doesn't mean I can't have a thinking faith.
Christianity has convinced me for a number of reasons. First, The history and explanations offered by the Bible do make a great deal of sense to me. I could go on for a while about that subject. Pineapples and anemones.
I also have heard of and seen personally immense changes within the lives of Christians that are one-in-a-million stories among the non-religious.
The Bible, I've found, is incredibly practical in application and does not conflict with itself or external recorded history. All the historical conflicts I've found brought up by nonbelievers are dispelled by simple research and familiarity with the Scriptures themselves. As I said in the thread, I've always been interested in science and such did quite a bit of research on that front. I also have had interest in other religions. Whenever somebody brings up an unfamiliar faith, I like to read up some before commenting on it. I've not found a lasting hole in the logically and philosophically evident truth of the Bible.
In order to avoid killing the origins of the universe topic, I thought I'd ask you here; why do you actually believe what the Bible is the truth? What proof were you given that made you decide "Yes. This makes far more sense than any other theory I have heard". Or is it simply blind faith because you were raised to believe in it?
I'm not attacking your beliefs by the way, it's just I'm curious why you believe what you believe.
