Does this prove anything? There are just as many, if not more, ex-Buddhists, ex-Taoists, ex-non-believers, ex-Muslims, ex-prisoners....and many other 'exes' who become Christians.
to believe in no religion is the way.........stop being mired in daydreaming of the fictional heaven and people will wake up........
as the Buddha said '' in truth, there are no buddhas and no teachings ''..........
as for ex-buddhists that became christians or other religions........they're eating shit and pooping out rice.....
Like the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the word of God, the Bible, very few see it as great treasure while the majority of the people see it as 'rubbish'. We are warned by Jesus not to give what is holy to the dogs and not to cast pearls to the swines so as to avoid these value pearls trample under their feet. Worse, these dogs and swines may turn and tear you down (Matthew 7:6). Sound familiar? In Philippians 3:8, it also tells us that we should consider everything loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus, our Lord, and we must do every thing possible so that we can gain Christ.
Even rubbish is still something - some consider it as worthless; some consider it as valuable. But when it comes to nothing, it is nothing because nothing is zero and you can add 10, 20, or 100 zeros to a zero, it is still zero.
Jesus is in the 'business' of cycling trash, repented sinners like us, that is believers - let me emphaise 'like us, repented sinners' (and not you, so don't take offence). He can turn trash and become His treasured possession. Just like unwanted trash, if no one valued them and they cannot be recycled into any other usable things, they will be destroyed and burnt in hot-furnance. The word of God, the Bible tells us that a hot furnance that God has created to burn the trash that refused to let Him cycle into His treasured possesion is called 'Hell'.

if you can write a true account of your great grandfather's deed that happened 70 years ago in the year 2012, do you think you have accuracy and would you "add extra ingredient" into it as well?

Dont take my word for this. Please view Bart Ehrman's Misquoting jesus and ...
Dr Francesca Stavrakopoulou, bible research scholar from University of Exeter had stated that historically, the bible is not accurate at all...
well, the usual case of pointing to an event whether it is true or false is to use alternate source of information to triangulate to the events and confirm with facts. there is no point that you can claim the bible is fact, but historically nobody have seen or heard about jesus except for jesephsus' entry. alright historically, jesus as a figure did exists but all those stories about walking on water, turning water into wine, resurrect etc... who can verify that? mary had been written out from the early scriptures due to the sexist stance back then in the old days and they dont want to see mary as a main disciple, instead they crowned peter as the main disciple.
for more details on this, please look up on the historical fact of the Cathars.

a few more that i have told you about are Joshua evans, Jerald Dirks, Bart Erhmann, Elaine Pagels etc etc
sad if youre on that side I know but you have to search and research the truth.
whats even quite amazing but not surprising is that if you watch the video from 12mins on , Dan reveals that there are numerous preachers who are getting up on sunday morning to preach but they do not believe what they are preaching anymore.
A person is a person....cannot be rubbish....but what he said can either be of value to one group but it can be rubbish to another group. To some people, relatively speaking compared to the total world population, Bible, the word of God, is a great treasure book but to myan people they just treat it as rubbish.
