"I didn't think of it like that - emotion versus reason. I guess asking him to be logical and reason it out and explain the specifics to me will end in the old favourite cure-all FAITH which is based on emotion and not reason."

"Reminds me of a line by Redd Foxx in the Movie Harlem Nights, about a cop that went from being a Catholic to a Baptist after he fell in love with a hooker. "Must be some powerful p---y to make a man change his god." In all…"

"I would listen to him and then explain that you understand how he is hurting, but to remember the reasons why he was an Atheist.  Hope he comes back around to reason.  If he gets in so deep that he becomes really religious and there is no…"

L Jordan replied to Austin Hunt's discussion What age did you become an atheist/agnostic and why?
"I also have become stronger in my non-beliefs over the past few years. I started noticing how my right to not participate in religious things was never taken seriously. People would say 'just do it, what does it hurt' but they just…"

L Jordan replied to Austin Hunt's discussion What age did you become an atheist/agnostic and why?
"Although I was raised by my athiest mother, I went to a christian school because there are no non-religiously-alligned schools here and we live in a majority christian country. My mom didnt teach me to be an athiest but she didn't teach me…"
