The Devil's Advocate
As someone who was raised in a religious cult and am now an atheist, it is hard to brush off how I lived before I "converted." I sometimes am drawn to certain religions and actually have a longing to follow one (or many if it is an eclectic path). So my question to those religious-to-atheism atheists on here is if you have gone through the same feelings of wanting and desiring to join a religion, but ultimately not doing so. And if you have gone through a period of atheist-religious-back to atheist, what made you come back to atheism instead of staying in that religion?
