On Francis Collins

Just listened to Francis Collins describe how he became Christian from being atheist. It sounded as if the man forgets the emotions of early childhood and ignores how they inform adult emotional needs.
I also didn’t hear even a scintilla of recognition of the whole of the bible, he only hears the ‘god loves me’ part.
He feels like the christian god explains so much that he otherwise doesn’t understand, but ignores that many others do understand what he does not and do so from observing nature, not from the words of politicians and poets long dead.
