Friendly Atheist: Is that all you've got?

You may have heard of Hemant Mehta, the “friendly atheist” Recently, Hemant spoke at Oak Hills Church about all the people over the years that have tried to convince him about Jesus: “Every time that someone tries to convince me that God exists or that Christianity is the right path forward, it seems that they fall into that same stereotypical pattern where they think if they throw a magical Bible verse at me that is going to do the trick, or that clearly I haven’t read the Bible — which I have — or if I hadn’t studied it, or if they hand me a Lee Strobel book that’s going to do the trick. We’ve heard all of it before… That’s the thing… It is just assuming that I’ve never heard it before, and it’s frustrating when you hear the same arguments over and over. It’s like, if this is the best you’ve got and this is what I hear year in and year out, I feel that there is nothing new you have for me. So, I guess I’ve gotten more confident in being an atheist.” Question is… is that all you’ve got? Seems that Lee Strobel is the only one making out with this deal. 🙂 Read more here… Thoughts? Todd
