TOO MUCH EVIDENCE FOR ATHEISM
Patrick Glynn, a former arms-control negotiator for the Regan Administration, began his journey to atheism in grade school when he encountered evolution and became a confirmed atheist by the time he received his doctorate from Harvard University in the 1970’s.
After marrying a Christian and finding himself in frequent debates with her over spiritual matters, Glynn said his mind "became sufficiently open" so that he was willing to check out whether there was any ration evidence for the existence of God.
After a great deal of study, he changed his position and determined that "there is no good reason for an intelligent person to embrace the illusion of atheism or agnosticism." He said there was simply too much scientific evidence to support intelligent design.
