Atheism, Christianity

Discussions with an Atheist – Part 18

atheist

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.

“you do not understand this whole god thing right?“

No, I do not understand this whole God thing – that is true! He is God and I am not!

“do you know how it does things?”

No, I do not know how He does everything!

“how things are created? “

No, I do not know how things are created!

“no mind can systematically remember every detail without rethinking about a certain aspect of it and revamping or downgrading it.”

This is relatively true, but the issue with the gospels, as I mentioned previously, is the promise of Jesus to bring “all things to remembrance” for the apostles when they would need it.

With your rejection of Jesus as God Almighty, you simply live on a naturalistic plane.

You have great faith!

”What is hypothetical about being born in Norway or India?”

Being born in Norway or India is hypothetical to me, since I was born in Canada, and I can not speak for those born in India or Norway.

But I can speak about being born in a non-Christian country, in a non-Christian home, and the similarities are enough to answer your complaint, (IF you want it answered, but alas, I think you do not want answers!)


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.
