When I was growing up, life in my household was bad, due to alcoholism
, daily fights, and physical abuse. So I spent a lot of
time in my room alone, out of
the line of
fire so to speak. Both Mom and Dad's beliefs were there are No God, and No Afterlife. Their thoughts were that Heaven and Hell are right here on Earth, and once you're dead, your dead, period. Early on before my 1st actual encounter, I too questioned the afterlife and God's existence at times.
