    All the religious books and texts that we do have on earth, were written by people who came to believe in a creator before those texts existed, and believed them to be as they wrote them down... why would you expect it to be different if you started with a clean slate?

    The way people did before books and texts. It's called the oral tradition. Plus, don't forget, God himself was known for directly contacting people in certain cases. What kind of creator would he be? The very same one.

    God has revealed His power through His creation.

    Atheism is a pretense - an emotional choice to deny the reality of the Creator. But God isn't fooled. The unbeliever has no excuse.

    That which can be known about God is made plain to everyone; God has shown it to everyone. For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that everyone is without excuse.

    Excellent question, theists of all faiths rely on scriptures to uphold their beliefs, but think of it as a movie, it has a start (the Genesis), drama (plenty of it in the Bible), forbiden love (David and Berseba), Action (Wars, David and Goliath), it has a constant villian, Satan which we all know will be ultimately defeated by the main character God in a final hand to hand fight.

    Sounds familiar? You had seen this same formula a million times in movies or TV, also the Bible wouldn't make sense without a bad guy tempting Adam and Eve.

    Before I could read any "religious books" I knew there was a God.

    Young children ask their parents where they came from. It's a natural question. One cannot be born, grow old and die without asking the question, books or no books.

    His wonderful creations are in clear sight of ALL men. There's NO excuse.

    Paganism. Multiple deities; focus on the Mother Earth as the creatress. I am pagan.
