Patrick Greene Sold Me on God

So the big news of the week is that some atheist few have ever heard of has converted to Christianity. While researching my Examiner article on the topic, I decided to go right to the source. I e-mailed Patrick Greene and asked him, what’s up?

I read quite a few articles about Greene’s conversion and they all said about the same thing. Greene converted because Christians paid him $400 and because evolution can’t explain the huge, massive differences between humans and other animals. So I asked Greene what he meant by the huge differences in human and other animals. He told me that he was referring to brain size and physical characteristics.

This was pretty shocking because humans don’t have the largest brains… not even proportionally. But, I told him, even if we did, that wouldn’t disprove evolution and it certainly wouldn’t prove God. More than that, it wouldn’t get you to Jesus either. So what convinced him?

“What got me to Jesus was very simple.  With the education levels and knowledge of the societies back 2,000 years ago, Jesus had to be the son of God, because the people there would not have the imagination to make up stories like walking on water, rising from the dead, and changing water into wine.”

Wow, I never heard that argument before and I thought I had heard them all. Congratulation Patrick Greene wins a prize. You have to admit that is a pretty solid argument (snicker, snicker). Jesus has to be real because Christians lack the imagination to make this shit up.

Holy shit, I am sold!

Oh, there is of course the fact that people 2000 + years ago had awesome imaginations a while Greene might be correct that Christians back then might not have had great imaginations, they could just steal their stories from everyone else. Oh look, that seems to be exactly what happened… either that, or the Greek gods must be real too.

I always said Zeus was real. I knew it; the ancient Greeks didn’t have the imagination to make that shit up.

    Listen. He was not a ” true ” atheist “. Is not what the Christians say when one of them does something naughty ?

      Who said he wasn’t a true atheist? Not me. I’m sure he was and I’m not sure he isn’t now.

    A story so unbelievable it has to be true is his reasoning for creation truth? That’s a first for me as well Staks. I normally just receive bible versus to verify the truth of creation.

      He didn’t mention creation. It seems that he has joined a less literal church, but he certainly claims to believe Jesus walked on water, turned water into wine, and rose from the dead.

    I’m beginning to think that maybe Greene is pulling an elaborate prank on Christians. He can’t really be this stupid, can he?

      I think he might just be in it for the money, but who knows.

    I didn’t really think he was pranking anyone until that “people didn’t have imaginations 2000 years ago”. Wow!

    I get the feeling he was more anti-Church than anything. My mother was the same way. It was mostly a rebellion against authority thing, and when she did become a Christian, she did it with the same fervor that she had previously rejected it. She never was an atheist though. Mostly various new age stuff. To this day when she hears someone’s birthday, she goes into an astrological analysis, and then remembers she’s not supposed to do that and stops.
