"The more important your faith is to you, the more the doubts will bother you." - BINGO! The people that are most likely to deconvert are those that hate us because we represent their own doubt.

It's not just fundies that feel that way. Non-Literalists who consider God to be central to their lives also suffer from the same doubts and I also felt absolute wonder when I came out on the other side, free of guilt and the need to hate myself because God wanted it. I would compare it to living your entire life in a world where it is always the gray of winter and overcast and considering yourself satisfied because you're not in the horrible darkness of the confusion of the deconversion prossess. But what they don't understand is that on the other side of that darkness... atheism is like you step out of the winter world into the world of summer sunlight and brilliant colors of nature.

Theists look for paradise in the sky.... I have found it on earth... but they still can't access it, until they give up the afterlife.

Ironically, I was deconverted by a book called "Saving the Bible from Fundamentalists" and the author claims that you can still believe in God without believing literally in the old or new testament. I couldn't see how that could be possible. How could you believe in Jesus if the miracles and stories in the gospels werent "literally" true?
