We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

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?

Thanks Hope that was very helpful. The BBC when talking about that politician or this leader will often explain what tribe they come from.

Perhaps they don't know enough about religion or atheism because they haven't looked into it enough.

That's true..

In my experience, a lot of adult converts to religion will say they were atheist. However, they were really just ignorant of religion and gave it no thought one way or the other, until some crisis or effective evangelical "opened their eyes".

1. This is misleading and manipulative. Latched onto by other christians to undermine atheism.

2. I worry that a lot of real atheists don't educate their kids enough about religion in order to inoculate them from the BS later in life. Non-religious and atheist are not synonyms.

 

If she was an atheist, she was a mighty soft one.

Lack of logic and critical thinking.for example if a person ask how did tribes come to existence ,for him to go for research to get the information then he wil be reluctant and the opposition wil get point and say God created them.if his convince for the first term,second then there was a possibility of him going back to the religion.
