Yeah, I got a bit of a soft ban, there. I'm not banned, technically, but I'm not allowed to post. My problem, apparently, was I was too polite. The mods couldn't ban me for anything I did, but made it clear that polite nonbelievers were more dangerous than rude ones. So, they started to get creative with their terms of service so they could take action.

I find that hilarious. I imagined them in a room going over the TOS just for you.

Btw, Welcome, Addai

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

I love it when theists say "I am not here to convert anyone." We know that for some. Others do say that but don't mean it. Does not matter to me either way.

What matters is that the theists has a belief in a non material cognitive being which they have absolutely no evidence for.

Humans switch positions from one religion to another, or from god belief to atheist, and from atheist to god belief, yes.

However, the atheists I know that are deeply educated as to both sides of an argument, a like scientists at the top of their fields have proven climate change and evolution, are highly unlikely to regress back into theism.

The ones I have heard claimed to have been former atheists, are more laypeople who simply stopped at "it doesn't make sense" , or think "atheist" is a rebellion against a particular god, or switch back because they stupidly pick a group, like theists do, because they see the other as "too angry" to want to be a part of.

I certainly cannot say what I will believe 20 years from now, but in my lucid state with no brain injury or mental health issues, or brain illness in decay, I cannot see myself changing positions. There is no such thing as an invisible sky hero.

I would highly suspect that someone claiming to be a former atheist did so for the wrong reasons.
