Sorry, it did kind of sound like you were saying that.
I think an important aspect of belief is that it occurs on a spectrum and can change over time. You can have a point where you are sure God exists, and another where you are not sure, and another where you are sure God does not exist. Those are all valid points. And if you believe one thing for your whole life, okay, that's valid, too.
