← Care in Atheist Terminology

Layla's Avatar Jump to comment 9 by Layla

I was just thinking that these terms don't really reinforce Christian myths when I suddenly remembered my uncle, after becoming born again, using that exact argument to actually back up the existance of God. He actually seemed to think that we all just instinctually call out to Jesus/God at times of great emotional intensity because of some in built knowledge of God or something and he was unable to see that this is merely a part of the English language.

Anyway that doesn't mean these words really back up Christian myths it just means some people will clutch at whatever straws they can.
