Well at some point I was becoming convinced of his arguments about Jesus's resurrection I think but then I looked at counter-arguments and lost faith in that.
Well he must have converted for some reason and apparently a major reason was due to the "evidence" he looked at.
BTW see also:
Yes, you also say there, "But I think there are examples of atheists converting to Christianity so there must be some kind of evidence that Christianity is true."
Which is completely fallacious. Because somebody converted, there must be evidence?
No, that's trivially false. Somebody who is "dux" of their grade should know better. There are multiple reasons for belief that have nothing to do with considering evidence. But that kind of fallacious thinking is common coming from apologists. It's a very weird argument to come from an atheist, unless they aren't so dux.
Well I haven't 100% ruled them out yet. I'm an agnostic not a strong atheist.
So you're undecided about this evidence you bring up? Explain why it's so ambiguous for you.
Yes a lot of his reasons aren't convincing but some apologetics authors are to some extent - depending on the subject.
This thread involves asking a question of non-believers.
So, aren't you a non-believer yourself? You should be able to answer it yourself.
The point of this thread is for people to share their opinions and experiences. It isn't all about me.
That's a dodge of the question. And any thread topic is open for challenge.
