I left the following message today on the website of “DagoodS”, one of the persons most influential in my deconversion from Christianity:
Over the last year and a half I have watched as your blog has remained silent, wondering why you lost interest in it. I now think I understand.
You no longer need to confirm to YOURSELF that Christianity is false.
I have been furiously debating conservative Christians regarding the non-reality of the Christian supernatural claims ever since my deconversion in June, 2014, most recently on Theology Web, debating apologist Nick Peters. I have come to the conclusion that no amount of reason, common sense, and even evidence will change a conservative Christian’s view of the Bible and his supernatural belief system. It is a futile effort. He or she is never going to see the truth until they decide that knowing the truth is more important than their cherished faith. Very few of them are willing to make that choice.
I am now fully convinced of the falsity of Christianity. My debates with Christians may have never changed the mind of a single one of them, but my debates with Christians have convinced ME. And I guess I should be satisfied with that.
Thanks again for your help in the past.
Peace and happiness,
