"My argument has been, is now, and remains about as pragmatic as an engineer can manage, to wit: NO EVIDENCE. It's not that Islam and Christianity and Judaism and all the others are somehow opposing vectors which sum to zero or anything like…"

"Thanks Matt - reading your comments now. Shall respond at length. Just want to say I very much enjoy how our dialogue takes us to a grey area where terms like "atheist" "theist" etc seem somehow crude and lacking."

"Well, perhaps you've heard of Perennial Philosophy of the sort espoused by authors such as Aldous Huxley. Perennialists argue that although the sacred scriptures of the world religions are undeniably diverse and often superficially oppose…"

"So far, the Conflicting Plurality argument seems to be the most popular and persuasive. Currently rereading Nicholas Everitt's "The Non-existence of God", which has kind of been my atheist bible for a number of years now. I especially…"

"I cannot deny that time lost to "Sunday School", time I'd rather have spent playing with friends or watching TV, may have played a role in my de-conversion.  I guess religion never really had a solid hold on me. K J - I…"

"For me, it was allowing myself to be exposed to "other" information from what I'd been indoctrinated as a young child. Once I started reading and learning, allowing myself to question, wonder, doubt, etc., it gradually became clearer…"
