Odds are more likely that you know nothing about probability. Crawl back into your corner and resume the fetal position 'cause "OH NOZ. WE ALL GONNA DIE!"

No, they are SOMEWHERE between 0 and 1. Not anywhere. Big difference.

The chance that the universe ends tomorrow is somewhere between 0 and 1. How about GirlyMan sets up an escrow account and you and I put in $10,000. If the world disappears tomorrow, you haven't actually lost anything because you (and I) won't be here. If it's "anywhere" as opposed to "somewhere", you'll consider this a fair bet.

Of course, you won't accept this bet because you basically know you're talking complete and utter bullshit.

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?

Isn't atheism just a lack of belief in God? If so, sure I'd say that I was an atheists for sometime in my early 20s.

Jeez, with that degree of conviction, you get a 5th degree black belt in atheism. No need for 30 years training.

You actually have no idea about atheism, have you?

Are we still on for the $10,000 bet? I suggest the winner cuts GirlyMan $1000 + expenses. Sounds reasonable to be.

Yup, that's the only qualification. I too used to be an atheist, but now ... well,

You're mistaking Tomasia for dimaniac. Tomasia just don't understand God properly, dude just ain't found his Gwynnies yet, dimaniac's just a morbid morose idiot. Big Grin

Are you sure that religion didn't just take a backseat for a while? Or were you walking around shaking your head about what believers said?

Don't apologize to it. It feeds off weakness.
