One of our members recently informed me that two well known Christian authors/debaters are coming to Cherry Hills Community Church to discuss and debunk atheism. The title of the presentation is "Unpacking Atheism". According to the website (http://chcc.org/institute_unpacking_athiesm.aspx):
"Strobel, Mittelberg and Dr. Craig will unpack the central claims made by those who deny God’s existence and discuss how we can best answer them. In addition, they’ll disclose inside stories of Dr. Craig’s landmark debates with many of the leading atheists and skeptics around the world. They’ll also interview other guests with fascinating stories of coming out of atheism to follow Christ.
Together we’ll answer the toughest challenges to our faith, hear stories of truth triumphing over doubt, and point people confidently toward trust in Christ."
This is the type of event every Atheist available needs to attend. If for no other reason, than to let Christians know there ARE NO teachings of atheism and that we're all perfectly content living without religion and dogma. I think it would be awesome for 100+ atheists to show up, listen, and...in a non-confrontational way, point out the fallacies of what is said, but also let the Christians there know how content we all our with our beliefs (or lack thereof).
If there is enough interest, we'll probably organize a pre-event meetup somewhere to share ideas and thoughts on how best to approach this event.
I hope you'll all join me in attending what I think will be a fun and interesting event.
Thanks for the heads up Ralph!
