I'm thinkin' a sharp rap to the back of his head. Consider

If it works with televisions and nintendos, it might work on theists. Consider

Couldn't hurt to try. Big Grin

RE: What kind of atheist converts to a theist?
Atheist converts to theist... theists who convert to atheists.... to say, "What kind of insert name converts to xyz" is the same no true scottsman fallacy that we often call theists out on for saying, "Well no true christian would become an atheist.[/i]"

However, this is simply not the case. People are emotional creatures. People are very much social creatures. There are a wide variety of reasons things are appealing to people from emotional tie, to confirmation bias to community appeal and other things. An atheist could perhaps convert, just as a christian could convert.

To say no true atheist would do x y or z is the same exact logical fallacy as no true scottsman. A TRUE scottsman would drink a single malt 15 yr highland, by the way.
