Arguing with aetheists....

Is a good way to P*** oneself off,
and re-affirm One's faith.

Anyone else found that?

I've noticed with one adamant aetheist I know, his soul argument seems to be "Science Proves there is no God" and "Logic proves there is no God". And then falls down flat when asked "Why are we Here then?"

His usual answer is "We don't need to know"
I say fair enough, no, We don't. Too busy being here anyway.
But as far as I'm concerned, I don't want to know "Why?", but the question of "Why?" is proof enough to me there is a God.

He also can't see the difference between "Faith" and "Religion", and because he doesn't understand any religious teaching, he won't listen when I try and tell him the difference. He thinks I'm being all religious at him!

So, I give up debating, and come away satisfied that only my own personal experience of the Divine can ever affirm my Faith in God.

Why not respect his belief as differing from yours but equally valid?
I'm also an atheist but feel I shouldn't have to defend my viewpoint any more than you or anyone else should have to defend theirs.

Try defending yourself against a Southern Baptisthaily

now I just try to avoid any discussions of anything religious, supernatural, occult and on & on.
