Spot on the last part, my entourage mostly focuses on the belonging part,especially my parents .
The reason I started at looking at the text is because I went down the road of what Luke discussed in his presentation “Why the new atheist failed” I wanted to seek the strongest argument of the opposing part that can be criticized without falling in the mysterious loop of what is God or how does he exist.
That’s why I took my time to do this research not because of respect to the religion but because I needed to have some kind of argument that fits the usual discussions I often have with others.
I haven’t read the reductionism sequence in the sense that I have a technical understanding of it.
My personal atheism story was really built from what the last part of the sequences discuss I.e can you start thinking about religion or god without being taught directly, to be honest I started loosing the respect of belief along reading the sequences which was the most enlightening experience I’ve had in my whole life. I can’t praise this community works in the sequences or the posts enough, really.
Thanks for the feedback, the way you formulated some questions is quite interesting.
