RE: The CS Lewis card
Anyways of the atheists I've seen convert. Many of them seem to not be well educated, think with their emotions, and or got so lost in philosophy they lost their grip on the evidence based world. I've also seen people convert due to social pressures and everybody's favorite, for gobs of cash.

C.S. Lewis had been baptised in the Church of Ireland (part of the Anglican Communion) at birth, but fell away from his faith during his adolescence. Owing to the influence of Tolkien and other friends, at the age of 32 Lewis returned to the Anglican Communion, becoming "a very ordinary layman of the Church of England".

To me he seems to fall into the societal pressure category. Sometimes a lie repeated often enough will seem true. My guess is that coincidences, feelings, and confirmation bias, were all the undoing of his reason.

The atheist is a man who destroys the imaginary things which afflict the human race, and so leads men back to nature, to experience and to reason.

If I get one, can I use it in Waitrose too?
