RE: How and why do non believing grown ups convert to Christianity?
Agree that emotional response to life circumstances is the most common explanation. Others I've seen are growing fear of death, seeking social connections, desire to raise kids in church, falling prey to addiction recovery groups, reinforcement of political ideology, family pressure, and an eroding sense of purpose or self-importance. Lots of environmental reasons for irrational beliefs to take hold.

I thought no one was going to say it.

Yup, freetoreason has it...

When we are young we are immortal.

Then there comes a time when we are old enough to realise we are not.

Gandhi said it best:

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

Then you have no time to worry about death and no need to seek false consolation.

"former sibling"? Huh

We disagreed on the level of his assholiness. I leaned towards the "ass" and he leaned towards the "holiness."

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?
