If you have ever seen a Christian Apologist argue with an Atheist, and the sound was turned down... you'd be very hard pressed to know who was the Christian and who was the Atheist. As a follower of Jesus, and a student of and believer in what He says, I'm pretty sure this is missing the point.
This is perhaps why I enjoyed this post on Facebook. Not so much because it is clever, and I suspect written to make the Atheist look foolish... that is never my point. but because none of us a qualified to argue these points. Rather to discover them... and if we've the courage, the faith or the desire from God himself, to live them!
An atheist was seated next to a little girl on an airplane and he turned
to her and said, "Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker if you strike
up a conversation with your fellow passenger."
The little girl, who had just started to read her book, replied to the total
stranger, "What would you want to talk about?"
"Oh, I don't know," said the atheist. "How about why there is no God,
or no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death?" as he smiled smugly.
"Okay," she said. "Those could be interesting topics but let me ask
you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same
stuff - grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns
out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?"
The atheist, visibly surprised by the little girl's intelligence,
thinks about it and says, "Hmmm, I have no idea." To which
the little girl replies, "Do you really feel qualified to discuss
God, Heaven and Hell, or life after death, when you don't know sh!#t?"
And then she went back to reading her book.
