God knows I’ve tried. The WordPress stats show that over 3000 people (3396, to be precise), including many repeat, faithful readers no doubt, have consulted this Blog since I began publishing it in 2013. What has kept me going all this time is the hope that somehow I would strike the right chord at least for some Believers on the Brink, who would finally be inspired to reject their faith entirely. I guess I will never know how many I converted to atheism – or whether I converted anyone at all ! I could continue my search for the Holy Grail of the Fatal Flaws of Faith, in the process reassuring atheists perhaps more than troubling BOTBs . . . But I prefer to stop – or at least to declare a pause – while I’m winning and am still compos mentis.
I don’t regret my efforts nor my perseverance. I have provided anyone interested with a permanently available, massive library of reflections that leave no doubt – in my mind at least – that Religion is utter nonsense, “blindfaithblindfolly”. I have been happy to share the convictions that led me to abandon first the Catholic priesthood and the Franciscan Order, and later faith itself. Forty years ago I finally learned to see. I am putting this Blog on hold, not closing it, and hope that many will continue to consult it and discover the truth that alone will set them free.
