I didn’t believe in God for many years. I believed what I heard: that life began by a process of time and chance and then developed further from there. I have since found out that there is very little justification for that.
I came to believe in God because I read a bunch of books that convinced me that the scientific evidence actually points towards the existence of God. Life is too incredibly complex to be a product of time and chance.
If you do not believe in God, do yourself a favor and see if you are right. Look and see if there is actual proof for what you have been led to believe about how life began.
I would like to recommend a book. Each chapter is by a different scientist who gives evidence of things in his or field of science that cannot be explained by purely physical and natural means. You can read it for free, online:

Please give me the benefit of the doubt and take a few minutes and check out one of the essays in this book. I honestly believe that there is scientific evidence that God exists. I’ve only believed in God for 12 years, I spent over forty years believing that life on earth was just a cosmic fluke with no point. I accepted a friend’s dare and started seeing if there was proof for what I believed. Boy, was I surprised. You’ll be surprised, too.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” Psalm 19:1
The essential question regarding whether it Is unscientific to believe in God is this:
“How did life begin”.
No matter what your answer is to that question, you must have faith to believe it.
