Sam Harris har skrevet et meget godt svar til kristne som lurer på hvorfor han ikke er kristen. Jeg synes han her oppsummerer og beskriver situasjonen veldig godt.
Et lite utdrag:
You believe that the Bible is the literal (or inspired) word of God and that Jesus is the Son of God – and you believe these propositions because you think they are true, not merely because they make you feel good. You may wonder how it is possible for a person like myself to find these sorts of assertions ridiculous. While it is famously difficult for atheists and believers to communicate about these matters, I am confident that I can give you a very clear sense of what it feels like to be an atheist. Consider: every devout Muslim has the same reasons for being a Muslim that you now have for being a Christian. And yet, you know exactly what it is like not to find these reasons compelling.
