Atheist Reasoning Concerning 12 Step Programs
I was wondering how atheists here in RRS respond to the life changing effects produced by following 12 step programs which acknowledges a "Higher Power" that helps the addicted recover from their addiction.
I have seen atheist versions of 12 step programs, and they seem to be a cop out that still acknowledges some kind of universal power throughout mankind in order to help them overcome their addictions.
First question is, how do you account for the change in the person that helps that person get over their addiction?
Second question is, does your theist bashing undermine the good that 12 step programs do...and if so, why persist in the bashing?
