I was a very religious person when i was a kid. My parents were very religious and taught me how to be a devout religious person. As i became older, my suspicions on the religion started to grow. here are the two main reasons:
1) Human beings as a species have made stupid mistakes in their belief system. We use to believe that the earth was flat, that drilling holes would allow the bad spirits to escape,Alchemy,Mercury could treat pretty much anything and everything ....etc . In fact our reputation is pretty bad.
How come we were wrong about so many things even though almost all the human beings believed in it ? is it possible that we could be wrong about religion as well ?
2) 2.1 billion people believe that Jesus is God. 1.6 billion people believe Allah is God. 1 billion people believe in Hindu gods. Only one of these groups can be right. which means that the other billions of people who whole heartily believe in their religion are wrong.
If billions of people "who are as convinced as you are" about your religion can be wrong, what is the guarantee that you are right ?
