So A.N Wilson knew that there was no historical evidence for jebus, was friends with all the intelligent people and a top journalist. So what went wrong? It appears that just as antony flew suffered from dementures and converted to christianity A.N Wilson has done something similar. This newspaper article explains how this happens.
A.N Wilson writes:
My departure from the Faith was like a conversion on the road to Damascus. My return was slow, hesitant, doubting. So it will always be; but I know I shall never make the same mistake again. Gilbert Ryle, with donnish absurdity, called God “a category mistake”. Yet the real category mistake made by atheists is not about God, but about human beings. Turn to the Table Talk of Samuel Taylor Coleridge – “Read the first chapter of Genesis without prejudice and you will be convinced at once . . . ‘The Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life’.” And then Coleridge adds: “‘And man became a living soul.’ Materialism will never explain those last words.”
Now I would have thought that being friends with Richard Dawkins etc A.N Wilson would know that evolution answers this question.
At least i know that for every atheist who converts to christianity we have people like Bart ehrman and john loftus coming back the other way.
