"Belle, your answer to answers question is nonresponsive. Answered like a politician. There is no reasonable basis to suggest atheism holds answers. If you are aware of the basis please tell me. Atheism ought to be like god. Nonexistent. But religion…"

"Belle, why, why why would you think atheism would hold answers? What caused you to realize you are still a christian?  What is good about christianity? What makes you believe in god?"

DEFINITION OF INSANITY IS DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT:
