Dilagoue about my “atheist Christian” article on Unreasonablefaith.com

A friend of mine alerted me to the fact that an atheist/skeptic website called Unreasonablefaith had re-posted an excerpt from my recent article called “Can you be an atheist and a Christian?”

It’s a highly-trafficked website, and already there are a number of interesting, thoughtful comments there. Thought you might find it worthwhile to take a look.

Here’s the link to the discussion..

  • Thanks for the link to the discussion. I also learn a lot from the athiest perspective, being a “recovering” athiest myself. A habit of persons from both sides of the God/No-God debate that is completely counter-productive is to point to extremely violent or harmful people who believed one way or another and then make the point that the entire view is, ergo, violent or harmful.

    Like some who posted in response to your well-written piece, I also don’t believe in sacrificial atonement and quite openly call myself a Christian, belong to a church, write about faith, etc. It seems to me that fellow Christians may be more justified in rejecting my self-identification than the atheists who reject the idea so out of hand on UnreasonableFaith. As a lawyer I recognize this trick for what it is–age old argumentation. If your opposition is making head-way with a precept, try and invalidate the precept and then argue for the fall of the whole.

    As I understand it, and I have not yet gone to seminary, theologians have argued the atonement issue since there have been Christians. It seems an issue still completely “on the table.”
