I did so for a very long time many years ago. But the questions kept multiplying while the answers remained elusive. The Bible, with its many contradictions and fantastical stories provided little help. I finally decided that insignificant, ignorant me was not going to arrive at anything that resonated of truth. And if it was important to God that I know of him and his wishes, he, who made the billions of stars in the universe, could easily find a way to communicate directly with me.
To this day, that has not happened. When and if it does occur, expect to see me on every news, and late night television program -- I'll definitely let the world know.
