Discussions with an Atheist – Part 8


A long time ago, I was browsing my Facebook page when I came across a post that ridiculed Kirk Cameron’s efforts to sell an “Atheist” Bible.

A friend (who it turns out to be an atheist) seemed to think that Kirk was “uninformed”

Well I thought, lets discuss this issue, and what follows is a record of our discussion.

I really looked forward to his responses and enjoyed considering and responding to his concerns.

Some of my friends comments are a bit lengthy, and as I read them I found echoes of myself, seeking to defend a position simply by supplying a massive quantity of words, knowing inside that he quality of the argument was weak.

If you are a believer in the Lord Jesus, you may find encouragement, and some understanding of an atheist’s worldview.

If you are an atheist, I would encourage you to read and consider my responses. I seek to understand your position, and if you see a fallacy in my thinking, please comment. I only ask that you focus your position to one point at a time, in order that I may respond (if I can) without unnecessary confusion.

My comments and responses are in red.

But the power of suggestion is powerful as well….and who knows things could have been exagerated or just lied about as well.

Jesus did not suggest His resurrection – He TOLD the disciples often during His ministry that He would die and rise again. The disciples would not believe it. Not until the apostles (and many disciples) saw, touched and spent time with the resurrected Jesus for 40 days did they believe.
Even with this extended experience, the disciples still were full of “fear and trembling” until ten days after Jesus ascended into the clouds/heaven. At that time the disciples started preaching the resurrected Christ.

These events are non-repeatable which means they have no hard evidence stating they could even be close to true…remember what someone thinks is true does not make it true, unless that person can back up their claims with more than anecdotal evidence.

I think you are true.
By that I mean that your birth was a non-repeatable event. Being non-repeatable has no bearing on the truthfulness of a happening. Your existence proves the legitimacy of the anecdotal evidence that the birthing doctor may give concerning your birth.
I am looking forward to your response, and hope you are having a great day

Hey thanks for dropping by and reading my post, especially if you are an atheist friend. I hope to hear from you and would appreciate a comment to begin a discussion.

Have a great day.
