Happened gradually. I was always praying in the sense of "please don't happen", but I wasn't praying to anyone in particular. It's a relief when you just let things happen.

RE: When (if ever) did you stop praying?
For me, it was in my early/mid 20's. I was pleading for god to show me him to make me the religious husband my wife wanted. After crickets, more crickets, reading the scriptures, and nothing, I wondered what I did wrong. That was when I got more into apologetics. Unfortunately, I am too intellectually honest and fact checking these clowns drove me so far from christianity.

"If we are honest—and scientists have to be—we must admit that religion is a jumble of false assertions, with no basis in reality.
The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."
- Paul Dirac

I never stopped praying.


I couldn't because I never started. Drinking Beverage


Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I guess that being raised by conservative Methodist parents I was encouraged to pray before bed every night..... without really having any idea, as a 6-year-old, of exactly what I was doing, or why. As far as I can remember, I suppose I stopped praying at around age 8 or 9 years.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
