Former believers, what are your thoughts on religious experiences?

Essentially, this question comes from something I have no experience with. As someone who was never really religious (though I went to church occasionally as a kid), I've never had a religious experience. However, my uncle (who has been a pastor for several years) and a friend of mine have both had religious experiences which helped to convert them to their religious stance today.

Having heard their stories, I have my own explanations for their experiences, but I doubt these are relevant to the question.

What I'm really asking is: Those of you who no longer believe, but have been through a religious experience, how do you explain it (to yourself or others) now?

Thanks to everyone for the input. It seems that not everyone has been through a "religious experience" and that everyone's experience has been quite different.

+Matthew Sahagian +Daniel Voisin Thanks to both of you very much for the in-depth information, this is really helpful and exactly what I was looking for.

こんばんは、

I learned adjectives recently in my Japanese course, but we were never told how to string adjectives together. I found an example (1) online, but a friend of mine believes it's incorrect and suggested a correction (2):

(1) 私は高くて白いビルに住んでいます。
(2) 私は高くなくて白いなビルに住んでいます。

The English sentence I'm going for here is, "I live in a tall, white building." What would be the proper way to say this?

Just finished my second piece of fan art from Attack on Titan, a recent and popular anime series. I'd appreciate any feedback on the artwork (style, color, line thickness, etc.)!
Ironically, having drawn the character with the hottest temper in the Attack on Titan in his fragile emotional state from the first episode ( fav.me/d6b...

Man, and I was so looking forward to #OtakuDay today. But this will not stop me from my Otaku Day anime marathon!
 
Is today actually #OtakuDay or do we have yet to wait for the next one? We've got the answer! | http://goo.gl/xFVwQX

#anime   #otaku  
I've stumbled upon many posts on G+ and FB (example) that state that December 15th is some sort of official Otaku Day. I've also found this page which is from 2012, which means this was celebrated, at least, in 2012 too. However, I found no reliable pages that say that this is a thing, much like the person who posted the first post on this forum. I found this ANN article that puts this year's Otaku Day on August 17th (2012's was on the 18th). Fur...

Just found out that today (October 12) is "Freethought Day"! It's set on the anniversary of the end of the Salem Witch Trials in the late 1600s. While most of us are freethinkers every day, I suppose it's nice to have a day commemorating that fact. | http://goo.gl/mC7NU1
Freethought Day is October 12th, the annual observance by freethinkers and secularists of the anniversary of the effective end of the Salem Witch Trials. The seminal event connected to Freethought Day is a letter written by then Massachusetts Governor William Phips in which he wrote to the Privy ...

Wondering what Peter Popoff (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Popoff) is up to these days? This video's a bit long but you can skip about the first 1:45 and then just watch until you puke.

NB: I debated putting this in Religious Buffoonery, but it seemed more appropriate in the Videos section. #GPACMods if you think it's better elsewhere, do go ahead and move it.
