Hey, everyone! I was just wondering what you believe would happen if humans became smart enough to abolish religion? Personally, I believe that wars would come to an all-time low or even an end, and…Continue

Why you left your religion.
My multiple questions to my parents and Biblical teachers about the illogical proof of a god were not known or blown off as, "God works in mysterious ways." I believe that if there were a god, then suffering, poverty, and crime would be abolished. There are too many people on the street and too many horrible things happening for me to believe that an imaginary man in the sky "cares" for us. There is no proof of a god and there never will be.
