Atheism

Tactics of the New Atheists

"...atheists Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss discussed the merits of their approaches to 'ridding the world of religion.' In a recent interview with Steve Paikin, they made it clear that, despite their sometimes different personas, they have the same agenda — getting people to get rid of their belief in God. Yet they both say that Christians should not feel 'threatened' by their efforts to expunge religion from human history." - AiG

How to Convince an Atheist that God Exists

"'There is really no such thing as an atheist,' has smugly crossed the lips of more than few of my conversation partners over the years followed by a variation of the 'foxhole' story.
