I would like to hear different people's answers to this question. What caused you to become an atheist and what prompted your shift in views? I'm simply curious.

The book of numbers helped a lot.

I read the bible at a very young age and shrugged off a lot of what it said and continued to believe. I found that I was very interested in space and cosmology. So I began reading. I had read many science books and learned much about our cosmos and with some knowledge under my belt about our natural world. I decided to read the bible again, and I found many factual errors and began to ask questions. At that point I became a deist, lest I may go to hell. The idea of hell haunted me for a long time and I had a rough time shaking it off. Instead of trying to think of god, I started thinking about his supernatural aspects. The more I learned, the less supernatural god seemed to become. After shaking off the idea of hell, I hovered in agnosticism for a while until I rationalized the improbability of god.

And here I am, a baby eating, venom spitting, amoral, arrogant and sinful atheist.
Sorry for the grammar, it's hard to edit with an iPad.
