And I find it strange that more people don't deconvert after reading the bible... Then again, most people just see what they want to see...

Good, that may finally get you off my back.

And I'd rather you didn't see me at all.

PS. And don't even think about making a bad back "joke"

No, wait. I'm not.

Also, why am I wasting my time with this...

RE: Were you once a believer?
I sorta consider myself an agnostic, except I can't see any of the Gods of any of the world religions, sects, or cults being true. So in a practical sense, I'm an atheist.

I used to be in a CCM band. Opened for bands on big Christian labels. So yes, I used to believe.

RE: Were you once a believer?
I never really believed any of it but I spent a great deal of my early childhood attending every church that would let me in, trying to find something I could believe. I gave up at the age of fifteen. I approached my mother and told her my findings and to my surprise she told me she didn't believe it either. My parents basically had said nothing about religion, leaving that decision to me. I'm grateful.
