Here’s a neat video from a normally mean atheist, named Penn. Since I don’t own a TV, I have no idea who he is, but this is a thoughtful talk. Penn does not expect Christians to act like atheists in public.
From this, we learn two things:
- Making fun of atheists on the Internet is one thing, but if you have atheists that you relate to in person, be nice.
- Some atheists are grown-ups. They admire authentic, consistent Christianity, boldly expressed.
I will be surveying Christians soon to see why we don’t do what Penn says, and I’ll publish the results.
By the way, blogging is light today, because I had to work on a guest post for someone.

- the six enemies of apologetic engagement
- why men flee the feminized church
The challenge of postmodernism
- the problem of religious pluralism and religious truth claims
- the problem of postmodern skepticism: why Christians won’t debate
- isn’t faith is opposed to reason and evidence? (a debate)
My testimony is here, in case you missed it.
