Atheism Is Not A Choice

"Atheism is not the act of turning one's back on any particular god. It isn't about being angry at anyone's preferred god. It isn't a choice at all. Most of us arrive at atheism, sometimes quite reluctantly, because we realize that there is not sufficient evidence to support belief in gods. In some ways, it is not terribly different from realizing that there is no Santa Claus. And once someone has realized that there is no Santa Claus, it is difficult to imagine how one might go about choosing to believe in Santa once again."
