This video may come as a shock to many of my subscribers but you read the title correctly. Please watch the whole video and try to understand. I became a Christian in 2000 at the age of 20. I did not want to take a chance on going to the lake of fire, so I just trusted what I read in the Bible. The Bible was so primary to my faith because if the Bible said something not matter how ridiculous it was, I would believe it. I grew in my faith and enjoyed doing apologetics, which is basically making excuses for things in the bible. Many of the questionable things god did were justified because the Bible said he was good. I had multiple conversations with a guy who was a Muslim, and I realized he presupposed that the Quran was true. I wanted to tell him about how Jesus died for his sins, but the Quran rejects that Jesus ever died. I saw I could not reason with this guy as long as he had faith in the Quran. I asked this guy why he believed the Quran was true, and the reasons he gave were very similar to why I trusted the bible. This got me to consider biblical claims in light of extra biblical sources. When I did this I realized there was virtually nothing to verify biblical stories outside of the bible. With the exception of certain people and places having shown to exist. But nothing to verify the supernatural acts. I remember one day I was in my shower which has a skylight. I noticed a rainbow which I had never seen indoors before. In the Bible it says the rainbow is a sign from god that he will never again flood the earth. While showering it was sunny out and not even raining. This made me think of the strictly natural occurrence for the rainbow. This also made me think about the existence of god. Specifically did my experiences with god have natural reasons for occurring? I thought about this and realized there were always natural reasons for things I had attributed to god, or the supernatural. This made me feel kind of empty and alone, so I prayed to god about these concerns I was having. I evaluated the answers I thought I was receiving from god, and realized that these also were manufactured from my mind. I got to the point where I did not care if I received an answer or not, I would just go where the evidence pointed. The more I doubted Christianity the more I prayed to god, and I did this for over two months. I received no answer to my prayers that could not be explained by psychology. I felt free in some ways but empty in others and was on the search for answers. I watched non theistic videos, and re-watched old ones I had criticized with a more reasonable mind and saw that many of them actually made a lot of sense after taking my biblical glasses off. Now I understand how the actions of the biblical god were illogical and often less merciful then we as people would be. Taking all this into consideration I just had to admit to myself that god does not exist. If there is a god it is doing a horrible job of revealing itself to us. April Fools Day. I may be a fool, but not that kind. What is this your Ive deconverted video? No this is my deconversion joke video. Joke video?
It’s an April Fools Day joke video. Oh okay. [laughter]
