Glad to see it was already known to some, Hermes.
Also nice to see Singlecrochet enjoying the terminology.
Funny thing is, the best description of my spiritual journey is Born-again Atheist. I was agnostic, dabbled in Christianity, Lakota, came back to agnosticism, had a nervous breakdown in which I found myself praying for help to an artificial god, then I had my epiphany.
My unborn daughter was diagnosed with alobar holoprosencephaly, which basically meant she was going to be less than a vegetable at best. It was likely that she would have self-aborted before reaching full term, IF she did make it to full-term she would likely not survive the birthing process, if she DID survive it she would likely die within 48 hours. Essentially she had a brainstem but no higher brain. Ultimately, the best case scenario is that she would have been breathing, eating and excreting through tubes her entire life, she would be prone to infections, seizures and would never be able to look us in the eye, recognize us, not even smile or verbalize. We would never be able to have any meaningful contact with her. We decided to terminate, which involved a pre-term birth. Zoe Mei Shanguang was born Sept 13, 2008. She was 12 inches long and weighed 1lb 7oz. We thought she was stillborn until she surprised us with a yawn. She gave us two more yawns before she died. All in all, it was less than 5 minutes. I never got to hold my daughter while she was alive. She died in my wife's arms. This was our first child, and I miss her with an ache in my chest that has literally driven me to my knees at times. It was while the doctors were explaining her condition and prognosis that I discovered I had no anger about this situation, no guilt. It never once occurred to me to ask "Why me? Why us?" There was no why. That my daughter developed HPE was not a judgement or punishment. It's a statistical anomaly, a random occurrence caused by the very thing that fuels evolution - DNA's poor ability to accurately replicate itself.
My daughter's death is the horrific proof of evolution. It has left me with a clarity of belief. I know in my heart that there is not a god. And that thought has brought me more peace than any philosophy.
So you see, I was born again into Atheism.
