I think one of the most important reasons why atheism no longer holds any intellectual attraction for me is because it is dull. It is not a wisdom tradition. It has nothing to say to how to live a life in a rich and fulfilling fashion. As I've said elsewhere, if I wasn't a Christian - if I became convinced that, eg, Christ did not rise from the dead in any meaningful sense - then I'd become a Buddhist. I'd swap one wisdom tradition for another. I wouldn't kill myself - which is what atheism amounts to.
