How about a discussion examining (some of) the alledged reasons for deconversion
It's pretty simple. People deconvert when they come to the conclusion that the claims of the religion are not true.

They find that their understanding of science makes them appreciate the nature of God all the more.
Scientists who are religious compartmentalize their life. They place their religion in a compartment that they protect from serious evidence based scrutiny.
When they find that they can no longer justify keeping religion in that protected compartment, they deconvert.

I noticed you have 300 and something posts to my 2200, do you think your tactics will work? Your a sad excuse at attempts to intimidate. If cavediver couldnt do it, you have no chance. He tried for several years
Ill tell you and keep telling you, your wasting your time son
perhaps you could actually present an argument to the topic of the thread. As of yet, I dont remember any attempt by yourself
