    Actually, I formed my laissez-fair position of "legalize and tax" about three to four years ago. It's in this past year that I've significantly re-thought it.

    I have nothing to "give up." I embraced my apostasy from Christianity on the basis of textual criticism of the New Testament at the age of 14; it's such a lesser act to form a basic laissez-faire position. :rolleyes:

    Why embrace it in the first instance?Faithless religous belief is hardly a popular concept is it?Unless of course you are/were confused?People only ever believe the confirmation of their own beliefs.

    I don't know what this incoherence is supposed to mean, but I was happy to have been liberated from rigid Christian rightist orthodoxy.

    You believed in Christianity, you say, you read something somewhere, you say, you concluded from what you read that Christianity is a lie, you say.

    I say, you could hardly have believed in something with such fragility that the reading of a piece of Athiest literature immediately changed your mind unless you never believed in the first instance.I say you obviously lacked faith in your original convictions.I say you are a liar or a child.

    Then you only reveal your own ignorance. I read the work of a person who had been a former evangelical Christian like I was at the time, and who had had his convictions shaken through study of the field of textual criticism and realization of the fact that the current text of the Bible that we possess is a corrupted form far different from the original autographs, contrary to the evangelical/fundamentalist assertion that we possess an infallible/inerrant version.

    Oh,you still believe then? Forgive me, I misunderstood you, I thought you had decided to become an Athiest based upon the writings of an athiest.You go to a different church nowadays, why didn't you just say so? I thought you were an athiest like me.Thats a relief.:lol:

    I'm certainly not an "athiest" like you; I'm an atheist. ;)

    And I became an atheist based on a far more substantial and diverse literature, for that matter.
