Why is this so shocking?

Didn't y'all see this coming from a mile away?

Aside from the fact that it gives some Christians on the Internet gloating privileges and a very fasle hope that all atheists are capable of a similar conversion, it's a non event.

Every day there's a former self-professed agnostic or atheist who, after some struggle, decides to become a Roman Catholic Christian, a Mormon, a born-again Christian, a Jehovah's Witness, a Sunni Muslim, a Rosicrucian, a Scientologist, a believer in psychic phenomena and so on.

Of course, the reverse is true, as well, in addition to Christians who become Muslims, Roman Catholics who become Jehovah's Witnesses and on and on and on.

Who knows why beyond the likely speculation that it brings them comfort.

Good luck to the Raving Theist.
