Author's Note: This whole project spawned off
when an atheist asked me the question "Why
do you believe?"
I figured he deserved a decent answer to that question.... (and so did I).
College had challenged me to toss away my assumptions
about things and question everything. I took that to
heart and set aside my religious beliefs that I grew up with and went about the task of finding them out for myself.
Luckily I was smart enough to keep a journal at the time containing the information I found from the questions I asked.
This document represents the combination of my journal and the letter sent in response to the question.
As with most non-believers, Christianity seems to be a illogical blind-faith leap into ignorance, based on the poor premise that:
This argument is both weak and circular for a non-believer.
Someone who professes to be a Christian should have a far more sound reason for their choice.
This document attempts to do just that -- from the ground up. The anticipated reader is expected to be a logical, educated, open-minded atheist. Feedback is certainly welcome. Believers should also enjoy the content contained herein, finding new information they weren't aware existed.
If you take this document, and a Bible, in hand... along with what is happening out there in the real world as documented by history, you have enough tools to draw your own accurate conclusions.
This document's sole purpose is to explore and record thought provoking ideas. Readers wanting to contribute to this forum are welcomed to send comments and feedback.
