RE: When you deconverted from Christianity...
My deconversion came from first becoming agnostic because I could not prove nor disprove the existence of god. After that, I became disentangled from religion and through a period of time came to observe it from afar as a neutral observer with nothing to gain or loose from my observations about it. It was then that the whole ridiculous nature of it became clear and I could finally say, no, I really don't believe it.

Not at all. I stopped believing long after I stopped going to church or hanging around religious people. It was simply a matter of being honest. I just couldn't justify my belief with reason.

The absence of magic is the strongest and most irrefutable evidence that god does not exist.

RE: When you deconverted from Christianity...
Hypocrisy and judgmentalism are often cited as reasons for not becoming a Christian, or for leaving Christianity, I guess, but my departure had nothing to do with either. Like one of the other respondents, I was a white, anglo-saxon protestant male, so I suppose that I had the luxury of feeling welcome. I'm still all of those things, except for protestant ... but at any rate, my departure had to do with cognitive dissonance caused by the real world not behaving for me like it was supposed to. Things like unanswered prayer, unrealized promises, things of that nature. The rubber not meeting the road, so to speak, let me to the realization that it's all bullshit.
