Full disclosure: I have been a hard-core atheist all my life. I have also been fascinated by religion all my life, causing Christians of many flavors to think I want to be "converted" to their beliefs. Where I live now, I have friends who are devout Christians. As is Christian practice, they endeavor to convert me to their belief system. Many Christians I have known have been very intolerant. For example, my daughter is a lesbian; quite a few Christians go ballistic about homosexuality. However, my current Christian friends are quite tolerant and accept homosexuals into their church, and claim they would welcome me as an atheist. I doubt they started out that way; so somehow they changed many of their beliefs while still hanging on to what they consider their core belief. So, the questions I pose (and will ask on several other active religious boards) are:Have you ever changed some of your beliefs (religious and otherwise)?What impelled you to make such changes?Interpret, embellish, vary, as you find most appropriate.
