Convert Now, Before You Change Your Mind
Some people change their opinion. Others go through a conversion. I think it was a case of the latter, when my great-great-great-great-grandfather announced before the Royal Barnstaple Society of Theology and Natural Sciences that he had seen the error of his ways: "After a lifetime of observations, and many further years of deliberation, I have come to the conclusion that the moon is not made out of cheese, but out of butter."
He was stoned for heresy.
