Godless tribe deconverts christian

An interview with Daniel Everett.

“Although Daniel Everett was a missionary, far from converting the Pirahas, they converted him. He shows the slow, meticulous steps by which he gradually mastered their language and his gradual realization that its unusual nature closely reflected its speakers startlingly original perceptions of the world.”

    Actually he lost his faith in the early 80s which means he never had it to begin with. The Pirahas do have a spiritual side unlike atheist.

    I’m not clear if he now believes in spirits that take on the shape of things in our realm or not as the Pirahas? I’m not sure he knows what to believe.
