Once more, a Christian and devout believer was kind enough to point out to me that, not withstanding I am a good man and all that jazz, the real problem with all this head butting between Christian and Atheist … and Nan 😉
is me. Yes, that’s right. I simply do not understand.
So, after having read the bible cover to cover, being an ardent amateur on-looker for a number of years, regular engager with and reader of so many things Christian, including dialoguing with Christians themselves of, oh, so many various
cults, sects , denominations, having compared pretty much all of the more popular Christian claims pertaining to their faith against real, testable and in many cases, verifiable evidence from across multiple disciplines including, but not limited to, history, geography, archaeology, biology, palaeontology, anthropology, geology, and basic boatbuilding, I arrived at the (apparently ) outlandish conclusion that not a single Christian claim could stand up against even the most rudimentary scrutiny.
And yet, here we have , a devout believer, one who, as far as I am concerned is as fundamental as all Christians are in their beliefs – telling me I do not understand.
So, I have a question. This is directed primarily at all of you who have de-converted and are now atheists …. and Nan.
In the instance of our Christian friend
As so many of you have been there , done that got the T – shirt, is this a case of 100% belief because of full blown indoctrination or … is this more a case of wilful ignorance?
What were you like in this situation?
And of course a tipping point was obviously reached for you lot as you are no longer living in the Twilight Zone.
Let me know, okay? Full on belief( via indoctrination) or wilful ignorance.
Time for breakfast and to check on the bloke painting our front wall …
Catch you a bit later?
