    How did I come to the conclusion God was real?

    Simple........got beat over the head with a Bible as a kid until I hated Christianity and became a Taoist.

    Followed Tao long enough to not hate Christianity any longer so that when Torah was placed in my path, I was able to understand it a bit.

    Then, kept an open mind and looked for where other places said the same thing.

    When I'd seen it repeat enough, then I became convinced God was real.

    I have seen no evidence that God exists.

    The problem is I don't know who is right, I am just open to whatever may happen.

    1. The complete lack of objective, verifiable evidence.
    2. The fact that all religious beliefs are conglomerates of preceding religious beliefs.
    3. Application of common sense and reason.
    4. Science, from cosmology to economics has surpassed and superseded what the Bible tells us is true about our world.
