The more I talk with them I feel that either they just don’t know what Atheist means. Or that they are simply say this because they want to make you think “Oh if he found god maybe he knows something I don’t. I should go back to believing.”

Has anyone had these feelings?

Has anyone ran into similar situations?

Or is there any Theists that are just that. A person that was a former Atheist. Maybe you could elaborate?

Everyone is an atheist at birth. The religious belief comes later. So all the theists are former atheists.

A period in life where a person doesn't go to church and/or has a wild and wooly time for a while doesn't make them an atheist.

RE: In regards to former Atheist.
Most theists don't even know what an atheist is, it's how you get all those strawmen of that we eat babies and are deceived by Satan or that we're in rebellion against god or some nonsensical argument.
So, they feel that is what they experience and call it atheism. Ignorance, that's all it is. Unless they are just making shit up which could also happen...get a book deal or some shit, and get back on their high horse and go public with it.

I think 'former atheists' just weren't very good atheists, that is to say they were atheist for the wrong reasons.

I don't think it's possible to go from atheist to theist.

People who claim to have done that either don't know what an atheist is or are just lying.

Maybe I was not true atheist but I was atleast apatheist. Everything changed after realization of my own mortality. Death is too scary to accept it.
