Converts, Wed, Jan 30 2013 #(638)

Jan 30, 2013

Well – maybe not a convert. I have been an atheist for as long as I can remember. I repeatedly ran away from Sunday school when I was eight years old. I had to study the New Testament's John in school, but I treated it as fiction.

But thanks to your books and those of Sam Harris I'm out of the closet. I no longer feel I have to defend myself. As Sam put it – we don't have to explain daily that we do not believe in astrology. Why should I have to excuse myself for not believing in some 2000 year old scratchings that have been mistranslated and misinterpreted dozens of times?
