Dear Cedars, I respect you , your posts, and your excellent work as well as your point of view. The remark was not aimed at you, but the believers I have seen on line, here,and elsewhere, and in other media, who do "latch on......"
There was a huge pile of such nonsense after Anthony Flew made his position public, and after his death.
I find a number of believers on here who are very sure of their position and their faith, and they, like most Atheists, are not fazed by people joining or leaving their ranks either, but others on here and elsewhere seem to feel that because someone is no longer an Atheist this is sufficient to bolster their position, that view is nonsense, and it was what I was getting at, never for a moment thinking it was your view.
We need on here sometimes to realise that comments are offered for general consumption and discussion, too many posters in the past have spat their dummy out and left because they felt stuff was directed at them personally, it is often not the case.
