My parents took me to church (Christian, Protestant, Congregationalist*.)
When I was 16 I asked my Sunday School teacher if there was any evidence for God. He replied there wasn't and that you needed faith.
I didn't have any faith and had found contradictions in studying the Bible.
So I became an atheist.

As far as proof goes, to me it's simple.
There are many different religions, usually divided into different 'factions'*.
This is what you would expect if there was no God, just people hoping there was.
Meanwhile every single person on Earth believes in gravity.

So if God exists, all he has to do is prove it every time anyone asks him to.
