Recommending an atheist blog? Are you crazy!? Well, the jury has been out on that question for a long time now. I ran across Unequally Yoked this morning and was quite impressed with the honesty and freshness of the blog. The title refers to the fact that the atheist in question was dating a Christian and going to mass regularly as a result. The blog records her search for the truth.
Let's be honest here... most of the interaction between atheists and Christians on the net consists of flame wars which can leave the combox a smouldering ash heap. Most folks I run into these days tend to prefer to keep to their own turf and avoid any interactions with any who might disagree with them. We have forgotten how to have a good argument and there seems to be no end of really bad ones.
Paul's preaching in Athens consisted of looking around town for a good argument. "So he argued in the synagogue with the Jews and the devout persons, and in the market place every day with those who chanced to be there." Acts 17:17 Today we prefer to use the techniques of advertising and the media sound bite. Discussion? Sorry... no time... got to go to a commercial.
