It’s been an interesting couple of weeks. Somehow, the debate between atheism and theism keeps popping up in my life. There’s one situation I’m not at liberty to discuss, but it is certainly an example of Christians treating an atheist badly. Then there was my post on how Christians need to realize that ours is a faith that makes no sense from the outside. That led to a lengthy discussion between me, an atheist blogger and a Christian using “presuppositional apologetics”, an apologetic method that seems like a circular agrument to me. “How do you know The Bible is correct?” “Because The Bible says so.” Then one of the participants in that conversation posted his perspective on his own blog with a link back to my own. Hmmm…and now I just linked back to his. 🙂 Gotta love the blogosphere.
Meanwhile, I found myself in a couple of discussions on facebook along similar lines. What’s up with that? I’d be lying if I said all this wasn’t fun, but there’s a lot of pressure as well. I guess if I’m going to be in these discussions about faith, I can only hope and pray that I represent my faith in a positive way.
