Here is a story on CNN today, "Prominent atheist blogger converts to Catholicism"
So, how does one go from reason and rationality to superstitious nonsense? I know that there are some atheists who are only atheist through not reason and rationality but rather from "hating god" because of something that had happened to them. I term these atheists as fake atheists. But someone commented on the site that in her blog that she was raised in a non-faith household (I am not sure if this is true, but for the sake of argument that it is true) - how the hell does one get brainwashed to go from reason and rationality to superstition and irrationality?
There are much more ways to reach the state of atheist than just reason or resentment. Remember, atheism is a subtraction process. How thick or deep was your faith when it was removed? Did it erode, was it dissolved or was it shattered? Reason may have been part of the cause of your atheism or be a by-product of it. To children born in secular households, atheism comes from education, and religion is second-hand, perhaps it remains somehow fascinating.
