I agree with you 100%. During the piece I felt that Christian Wilman was backing into atheism but could never admit to it, even though his searching did appear to be heartfelt. He focused on missing the intensity of religious very much, but also talk a lot about being honest about reality. He doesn't believe in the Christian idea of heaven, but astutely avoided talking about a belief, or lack of belief in God. Interesting but ultimately unsatisfying.
