I don't think a true atheist could ever become a Christian, unless they had an undeniable direct, recorded encounter with a supreme deity.
Christianity is a faith. Faith is not the same as belief. Faith is like belief, with the absence of evidence. It is ultimately predicated on the
unquestionable and the unprovable. Belief requires a framework of evidence and logic, and can only extend as far as that framework goes.
Atheism (at least in my case) is the belief, based on all available evidence and the process of deductive reasoning, that there is no God. Until
evidence to the contrary turns up, my verdict remains that there is no supreme being.
As I see it, and without knowing a whole lot about it, there is far more evidence to support the ancient alien genetic intervention theory, than a
faith in God. If I had to bet the farm on whether god or some aliens are going to show up first, then my money is on the little green men.
If a self professed atheist ever becomes a Christian or any other religion, I would have to argue that they were never really an atheist in the first
place. Rather they were just keeping their wallet in their pocket while they were window shopping for a brand of delusion they felt suited them
