You're doing it wrong...

Here's Kirk Cameron telling us why he "lost faith" in atheism:

Believe it or not, I agree with him on a few points here.  If you dismiss something out of hand without truly finding anything out about it, you are starting from faulty assumptions.  It sounds like he called himself an atheist at one time because he felt all the cool kids were doing it.  Fair enough.  He's correct in proclaiming that to be a bad reason. Where I take issue is in the fact that he then substitutes nonsensical mythology for any real facts.  He replaced a metaphorical empty hole with one filled with junk.  In other words, you should attempt to learn more about something before you accept or dismiss it, but you have to be discerning about the information you choose to accept as well.
