Most athiests have had some sort of religious teachings. They have either had religious parents, attened church or suday school or at least learned about god in school. Therefore the choice to be an athiest does not come from ignorance of god or the bible they just doen't believe it.
I'm curious to know if christians and believers have looked at the otherside? Have any of you read Richard Dawkins or any other athiest literature?
When my husband was deciding he was an athiest he read extensively about both sides of the argument. Including the bible and the book written by the chap who was a devoute athiest and set out once and for all to prove he was right and ended up a born again christian. But still the counter argument was too strong and made much more sense to him.
I'm not trying to bash religion in this thread or change any bodies mind - I am simply curious to know if people have looked at both sides of the argument or have they just been happy believeing what they were taught?
