I am not an atheist, more like an agnostic leaning towards there "probably is something else out there", but i find it impossible to believe that any of the holy scriptures are even close to being true.
The bible was mostly written long after Jesus death and consists mostly of hearsay. We know that history written down based on hearsay is very unreliable.
I dont want to mess with anyones beliefs and i respect all religious denominations, but when i am being honest to myself its impossible for me to believe in any of the religions.
Too many inconsistencies, too many orders to "believe" instead of thinking yourself, etc...
