An interesting and thought provoking comment appears in this website.
In essence, the blogger asks the question, if Christians only believe in God because, as atheists say, they are conditioned to, then what conditioning do atheists have that drives them to their views?
The blogger makes the controversial claim that issues with their biological fathers is a common theme among more prominent atheists.
It’s an interesting observation, and the whole God/father thing is worth reading in full.
It’s also something to think on tentatively, because I know at least one minister of the gospel who could tick the same father related issues boxes as many of the people in his list.
Still, it makes your think. And if all that is raised is the idea that this is not a neutral debate to which completely unprejudiced people come with mere facts and figures, then job done.
