Hello! I’m here because I’m an atheist who has been reading too many things I shouldn’t have been, from CS Lewis to St Aquinas to Solokowski to the Catechism, and I’m now forced to wonder about becoming Catholic.
However, my life-long stances have been empiricist, materialist, positivist, and etc. I’m a very math/science person, who could until recently only stand very difficult, math/logic-heavy analytic philosophy. I’d like to be able to intellectually justify my potential Faith, and I know there have been many throughout history who have gone down the same road. However, my upbringing was not Catholic, and so I am unfamiliar with them.
Are there any philosophically-minded folks here, who could perhaps direct me to these readings, and help me learn how these intellectual hurdles are overcome? While I’d likely convert to Catholicism before solving these dilemmas (considering they haven’t, to my knowledge, ever been solved), I’d be most grateful if I could figure this out sooner rather than later.
