Hi all atheists/agnostics.... I found this video clip of a top atheist scientist who converted to Christianity. I know he is one of hundreds of millions of atheists who converted to Christianity, but
What do you think?

I think when he faced the real pain and emotions of people nearing death (when he changed to medicine), he had to find some way to deal with those emotions. He used religion to do that.

I think beginning to really know some scientific truths scared the crap out of him, which isn't too weird at all.

It sounds like he stopped basing his beliefs on common sense.

You have said in previous threads that hundreds of millions of atheists have converted to Christianity.
You have absolutely no evidence to support that statement. It should be obvious to you why this cannot possibly be true.

If your paying attention and listen to what he says, and he's very well spoken -articulating freely without evidence I might add of some of the suggestions above in emotional fear...he is attributing and translating what could be said 'the idea...into an evolving superior role for man in the eye of creation, his idea of God and humanity. He's a curious explorer type. Elevated, and easy to see.

There are always going to be those who find a need to embrace religion. The people who do seem to have an emotional need for it rather than a rational one.

It is of course to be expected while the atheist avalanche is in progress that converts from atheism (especially iof they are scientists) are going to be given a lot of exposure. The thousands who daily lose their belief in myth and superstition don't get any airspace.

Why is it these godombies like Witless think that because a 'scientist' becomes a Christian it's should be hailed as some 'big deal'. They seem to ignore all the people that move from Christianity to Islam or Christianity to Hinduism or to atheism.

Atheism is not a religious group. We are all individuals with our own thoughts and beliefs. So its not like we lost one of our flock.

He is free to do whatever he pleases.

I am more interested in this stat and where you got this information:
