At the start of 2014, former Seventh-Day Adventist pastor Ryan Bell
made an unusual New Year’s resolution: to live for one year without God —
this reflecting his own loss of faith. He kept a blog documenting his journey and had a documentary crew following him.
After a year, Bell tells NPR’s Arun Rath, “I’ve looked at the majority of the arguments that I’ve been able to find for the existence of God, and on the question of God’s existence or not, I have to say I don’t find there to be a convincing case, in my view.
"I don’t think that God exists. I think that makes the most sense of the evidence that I have and my experience. But I don’t think that’s necessarily the most interesting thing about me."
