I have been an Atheist for 30 years and can give you the best arguments on why their is no God, I have been in debates and always hold my ground.
Now facing this monster in my family, I find science has let me down and the only place left is "a higher power"
What a great thing it must be to believe with all you heart.

I am no longer in the business of changing minds just wish I had that faith.

I made a u-turn and sat there, talking to a statue and making every deal, offer, negotiation I could think of. "If you save my kid, I'll do this or that...
I wish I had the faith. I wish sins of the father were not passed to the innocent.
