For those who are open about their beliefs, do you have the people who seem to think that you speak for the entire belief system?

I am not open in that I dont go offering that up as info about me but if someone asks (and they dont bc all in this area assume you are a Christian) I do tell them honestly. Because of that I have not encountered what you have experienced with this guy.

So if he 'used to be an Atheist' then why cant he answer those questions himself? Oh wait...he wasnt REALLY an Atheist, just a doubter who never really stopped believing. I have a hard time with folks who claim that they once were an Atheist but are now a religious believer. To me it is like saying you used to be gay but now you are straight. wtf? Really?

Anyway, sorry he is buggin' ya on that subject. Sounds like he has questions he isnt ready to face and is hoping you might provide something concrete for him. I hope he finds his way.


May your day include things that are happy!
