The title is pretty self-explanatory. I had just assumed that after my research and falling out, I chose to be an Atheist. The other day I was speaking to my brother, and he said that to him Atheism wasn't really a choice. And in a way it's true. I don't think I could ever force myself to return to Christianity or believe the things I was taught. I'm kind of stuck, really. So, what do you think? Is atheism a choice?

Of course atheism is a choice. Religious people can refuse to expose themselves to real science based ideas and ways of thinking (vs. christian scientology). How do believers reconcile the errors in religious texts without intellectual dishonesty? It seems that intellectual dishonesty is key to believing in things you know aren't true. It's intellectually dishonest to deny yourself information in order to continue believing in superstition and myth.
