When I was once an atheist
As per request, I am posting a topic as to why I changed from atheist to Theist.
I was a Christian for a great deal of my life, I was so during high school. I went to a catholic school, and in my grade 12 biology class, I learned about evolution according to the provincal standard. There were religion classes offered, (you had to take them), but contrary to popular belief, they taught us of other religions as well and promoted tolerance.
I never really gave my Theism a second thought to be honest.
Then I started university, first as a chemistry major, so I had to take courses in chemistry, mathematics, and physics. About the end of the first semester, I did begin to question. How could God exist if the laws of chemistry/physics can explain how things got to be? I had read about the creationist's thoeries and how they could be explained through science. So throughout that time period, I was atheist.
That changed about third year. I had switched majors to physics since I enjoyed the classes, and didn't like the chemistry labs. The more I studied it, the more intriging it became.
I read up on physicists/Biologists biographies, and found that some actually did believe in God. This got me questioning my atheism. Why can't science and God co-exist? I pondered this point, and since science is the main argument in any atheist debate, I found it as a key component. Then I realized, yes, they can co-exist. The more I studied science, the more I questioned. By studing, I realized that things may not always be what they seem, and could be dramitically different.
And so began my re-conversion back to Theism.
