Subject: athesim: bastion of an infertile mind?
I am a former atheist, and since becomming a biblical christian I have not been able to find any atheists who can defend their position without resorting to "I just beleive it that's why" Surely your religion can do better than this!! I am very polite and do not yell or rant or rave or resort to "that is just a mystery of faith arguments" except when the atheist says so first. Surely someone would love a chance to "remove me from my delusional state and teach me to live without the crutch of theism".
That he calls atheism a "religion" tells me that he doesn't know as much about atheism as he pretends. That he would give his email message the title "atheism: bastion of an infertile mind" tells me that he isn't as interested in civil discourse as one would hope. The fact that he sent me a message the previous day from the above in which he stated that he had "...always more or less been a christian sort of, I want to see if anyone can help me understand atheism any better." tells me that he is not entirely honest about himself or what he thinks.
It's amazing how often someone will claim to be a former atheist and then proceed to make all sorts of really basic errors about what atheism is. It's obvious that they aren't being entirely truthful, "Tim" is just unique in not being bright enough to remember what he wrote the previous day.
