"We're all searching for answers. Where do we come from? Who are we? Where do we fit, in this world? Sometimes, having even the smallest connection to our past can chart a new future. And sometimes, we have to risk going back to the beginning in order to take a step forward. It's not always easy, navigating who you were and who you want to be. But in the end, it's the people closest to you that help you find your path." ― Miles Finer
Miles Finer is an atheist. On Facebook, God sent him a friend request and it escalated rapidly. He saved a man from suicide, helped an addict learn the truth, helped a troubled kid. He is determined to get to the bottom of this friend request and who is behind it.
As a child, Miles had a closer relationship to his father then he does now. When he was 8, his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, and he prayed for her recovery. However, after her miraculous recovery, she died in car accident on her way home, causing Miles to lose his faith in God.
Miles is a caring man as shown through the help he gives to the people suggested to him as friends by the God Account. In Episode 5, "Unfriended", he has the chance to give up helping people because God unfriends him, but he ultimately chooses to friend God himself at the end of the episode after realizing he enjoyed helping the friend suggestions he received.
At the start of season one, Miles's and his father's relationship starts out rocky, as Arthur is a reverend while Miles is an atheist (does not believe in the existence of God). They used to be close when Miles's mother was alive, but their relationship had been strained ever since her passing. Miles felt abandoned by his father after her death as he felt that Arthur chose religion over his own family.
However, after Miles is chosen by the God Account, he and his father reconnect and now are on good terms with each other. They place immense trust in each other, and take each other's advice.
Miles has a podcast called "The Millenial Prophet" where he discussed his views on religion and atheism.
