Here's an email I received from a man named Robert:
Thank you for the time and effort you have put into your writing. I am a Christian of nearly 30 years; devout, church going, prayerful. I first found infidels.org about 2 years ago and it opened me up to the possibility that the Bible is false.
I then started listening to you and Ken Pulliam, Luke Muehlhauser and a few others. I've read The Christian Delusion and talked with some of the most scholarly Christians I know about how they would respond to what skeptics are saying.
I think about these issues every day:
-- Why does the Bible condone sex-slavery and genocide?
-- Why would a super-intelligent God seem unable to communicate his will without confusing millions of devout followers?
-- Why are the gospel accounts of Jesus death and resurrection in disagreement about what actually happened?
-- Why did Jesus tell people he would come again "in this generation" if it would be thousands of years later?
When I am honest - when I stop making stupid excuses for what the Bible says (and not what I want it to say) - the answers are obvious.
I might have never known that my Christian beliefs were wrong without people like you. Thank you. I don't know how I'm going to tell most of my friends and family about this, but even if they think I am delusional, I am happy to be free from the laws and mindset of ancient, superstitious people.
