Google answer on religious conversion

Dear PinkFreud,

There appear to be 3 main ways people become "true believers":

1.  Faith
2.  Reason (apologetics)
3.  Revelation (mystical or semi-mystical experience)

This particular question does not involve #1.  The religious
literature for #1 is voluminous.

But #2 and #3 are more interesting.  Please point me in the
direction people who have fundamentally altered their lives based upon
reason or revelation, and *not* faith alone.

A great answer would point me to 2-3 web links with individual case
studies or even aggregated data.  Of course, I would also enjoy
hearing your personal experience if you do not mind sharing.

Thanks !

Ron


P.S.  All comments appreciated, whether you think this is hokum or
critical to human beings.  Thx!

PinkFreud's answer was quite interesting, as were the comments.
