    That idea is one of the fundamental reasons why I do this series.  If I can get to just one person that is like I was a decade and a half ago then I am happy.  If I felt this was an exercise in pure pontification I wouldn't enjoy it.  I like to argue, sure, but it's only really good arguing if you have a chance, even a slim one, of changing someone's mind about something.  I believe that is possible, and I didn't want to imply with my slightly flippant comment about The God Delusion that I think all theists are unreachable.  I don't know what the breakdown is, but I know there are many with doubts much as I describes in the above diary, and I want to welcome them and show them they are not bad people to think the things they do, despite what a lot of people in their lives have possibly implied.
