Oh this is interesting. An atheist who converts to a saving faith and he is a real bona fide scientist... Enjoy.

I'd heard about Francis Collins back when I took biology, he was a believer before the genome project started, which google tells me ran from 1990 to 2003. I didn't know he dipped in and out from atheism before that. Certainly, if I were a christian, I'd tout his name, but I wouldn't put his leaning on the moral argument as one befitting a biologists expertise.

Just there for edification. I am listing to another you might want to listen to also. PhD in Chemistry was an atheist and converted to Christianity. It starts of slow but gets interesting one third in.

It's interesting to hear such people out, people portrayed to hold to a higher standard of critical thinking can still have belief, of course statistics of belief across the board lean the other way.

Francis Collins is a brilliant scientist, he worked on the human genome project which provides absolutely brilliant evidence of human evolution. Good scientist I have watched alot of his videos.

I have heard Ian McCormack's testimony before. It is very amazing. He was stung five by box jellyfish. Often one sting is enough to kill a person in minutes. What was your experience?

Just the way he explains it, and tells his story is like I am talking to myself about mine...

The darkness is all I remember and experienced.... The pain was so real.... So real that I struggle with life now because I feel like I am dreaming, and that what I experienced was real... I was so overcome by this pain that every thing I have experienced in this world was a less then a pin prick... The pain was emotional, it felt like hate, fear, despise, vengeance, and pain its self was living... They consumed me and I was beyond the ability to cry or yell... I was paralyzed by this... And right when I was engulfed by this pain and I could bare it no longer a face in bandages or wrappings came to me... Man I can see this face clear as day! It is like its right in front of me, but it is beyond all words! I wish I could draw or describe it since I know bandages are the incorrect word... And this person/thing talked to me, not through words like I talk or we talk... But it was weird I don't know if it was talking through emotion or just talking... But I felt it say, Don't worry you are at peace now... And my while body felt peace.... THIS PEACE WAS SO REAL AND SO GOOD! NOTHING COMPARES! NOTHING! But it only lasted a second I could tell there was more but it disappeared... It was like a drop of water on a forest fire... But it was sooooooo soothing... Just the thought of that peace kept me going throughout the rest of that pain....

I wish I could give it justice, I wish I was in a public place or connected to a heart machine to give validity to my claims... But I was alone in my room...

I spend hours waiting for myself to wake up, and feel those emotions again... They were so real... I know I am babbling and no one else's stories have things with covered faces... and that I rush telling my story and do not give it justice... But when I talk about it, I remember it, and it brings back everything I felt... That is why his story moves me, I can tell its real by the way he tells it, not his words or him depicting hell or heaven or God or Jesus... But by the way his body reacts to the story...

I have felt that feeling twice, that feeling of incredible peace. I miss it. There is nothing that can compare to it.

I've felt the same way listening to a beautiful piece of music or watching a good film.

Ironwheelchair,

I am sure you can feel "like" I have described, no doubt. Yet it is unlike anything I have felt. The best way for me to describe it was that amazing feeling when you first fall in love. The feeling is strong and permeates you, except this was not love, it was peace. You feel super peaceful and I feel it in my chest.

You know Danschance, I really don't think you should talk about stuff like God's peace with atheists. It just goes right over their heads, especially when they don't even want to understand anything positive about the Christian view.

You might be right but Initially I was not talking about that to an atheist. Ironwheelchair was just arguing as all atheists seem to enjoy.
