Nate Townsend replied to Belle Rose's discussion 'Religion is NOT the "enemy"'
"A definition from the much lauded Wikipedia: A delusion is a belief held with strong conviction despite superior evidence to the contrary. I'd say that religiosity, in modernized, first world countries, fits that definition. Thus, treating…"

C.S. Lewis BS

"Archaeopteryx: technically, he's averted the paradox, with something along the lines of "I can trust the thought process I used to deduce a God iff there is a God." Fascinating piece of self indoctrination."

"Thanks for the add!  It took me years to shake my general Christian-like god-delusion after I realized the flavour of my indoctrination didn't work.  Wish you luck with your quest."

Nate Townsend replied to Michael's discussion 'Is Atheism Predicated Partially on the Belief in Evolution?'
"Perhaps I used the wrong wording. I said “God shaped hole” meaning the absence of the church and an ordered belief system in a former theist’s life. The point is that having had a religion changes a person even after they reject…"

Nate Townsend replied to Michael's discussion 'Is Atheism Predicated Partially on the Belief in Evolution?'
"Really, there are several different types of atheists. For those who never were exposed to a religion, or were exposed to too many for one to take root, there is one type, which I will call type A. Then there are the “de-converted”…"

Nate Townsend replied to Morgan Matthew's discussion 'Top 15 Quotes By Famous Atheists'
"It is possible that atheism is in some cases just as faith based as a religion would be. At the same time, it requires a whole heck of a lot more effort to continue to say “No” when saying “Yes” is so much more popular. Even…"

C.S. Lewis BS

"On the other hand, I kinda wish that I could find arguments like this one to deconstruct anymore. Pawn class Christians just aren’t worth bothering with, but this… THIS is a challenge."

Let me guess.  You realized that Christianity not only refutes itself through contradictions, but is just plain impossible, so rather than realizing your god-belief was just a delusion resulting from indoctrination, you went about cobbling together your own religion, loosely based on a belief in Jesus.  Am I right?
