One of the falsehoods some Christians love to spread is that “atheism is a religion.”
That, of course, is incredibly ignorant to say.
You show me real evidence of a miracle, you get your god to talk to me, you convince me the supernatural world exists, and I’m willing to change my mind.
On the other hand, how many times have religious people said they would stick to their beliefs regardless of what the evidence shows?
Creationists do it all the time — we show them transitional fossils and they find a way to dismiss them. It’s not limited to them, either. You show many Christians a reasonable explanation for their “miracle” and they still insist it was God’s Will. You show them a horribly misguided verse from the Bible and they insist it’s taken out of context or misinterpreted. No matter how damning the evidence is, they refuse to be swayed.
I know what it would take for my mind to change.
Ask a religious person what it would take for him to lose his faith and you’ll see who the dogmatic one really is.
