No.

The fact that I suddenly started believing in a God overwhelmed my skepticism.
How did that happen?

Yet another new and exciting comment toward the Christian of the board.

But really, are you just following my stuff to make posts like this?

Not really sure.

It just happened.

I had one of these.

Don't you dare question his actions, it's all part of God's perfect plan. Accept your punishment from God! Dodgy

RE: For those that have debated with me...
Quote:This is based on Saul's journey to Damascus where he was traveling to
further persecute the Christian converts there. On route, the Lord
appeared to him as a brilliant light which caused Saul to fall before
it. Jesus spoke to him, and Saul was totally transformed from a vehement
and vindictive unbeliever to a humbled man seeking the Lord's will.


In modern day usage, to refer to something as a ' Damascus road
experience' is to refer to a profound life-changing experience, that
turned one from skepticism to belief in the Jesus whom one previously
mocked and rejected.

That description is pretty vague. I wanted to know what the experience was.

Thanks! I find this type of thing interesting.

I'm interested in the psychological change one undergoes and the "feeling" they have that feels so strong.

Often I feel at one with the world, like a participant of the larger universal whole, but I know that feeling has only come from my understanding of science. Personally I think my experience is the closest I'll feel to any kind of religion.

No problem.

As you might have figured out, I've been asked a gaggle of questions, and I've extensively detailed my beliefs.

It might be hard to pick out information from all of this content, so if you have specific question, just post it in the "Ask a Theist!" thread; and I'll be sure to answer it as soon as I can.

I also take you've never taken hallucinogenic drugs?

No. Never had. Never even tried marijuana.
