Many atheists regard is as stimulating, thrilling, and gives them auto-affirmation and self-esteem, when they find theists with little knowledge or ability to defend their faith, and are able to attack their religion and knock them down intellectually.
I occur with frequency.
When the same atheist encounters a well-articulated, well-informed believer, and is unable to do the same, he simply avoids further dialogue but does not scrutinize his views.
His other positive experiences where he won, however, and the kick of self-esteem, is a cherished feeling. So what does he do? He ignores the negative experience, name calls and blocks the believer, and moves forward to his next "victim".
He does not realize that it takes very little for a well-informed believer to take his card house apart.
Helicase are a class of enzymes vital to all living organisms. Their main function is to unpackage an organism's genes, and they are essential for DNA replication, and evolution to be able to occur. They require 1000 left-handed amino acids in the right specified sequence. Each of the 1000 amino acids must be the right amongst 20 to chose from. How did they emerge by natural processes? The chance to get them by random chemical reactions is 1 to 20^1000..... there are 10^80 atoms in the universe.
This alone means end of game. But which atheist realizes it?
His self-delusion and will to remain on the same track speaks louder.
I have invited Matt Dillahunty, Aron Ra, Jamie Boone, and several other well known outspoken atheists to accept my FB " friendship" request, to come here an defend their views.
They have avoided and not accepted it. Why? Because of their previous experiences, where they did not come through with their arguments.
While we, believers, propagate our faith with the aim to fulfil the Lord's command to go and proclaim the truth, for HIS glory, and giving others the opportunity of forgiveness, eternal life, and knowing the goodness of the Lord, atheists do normally debate theists just for egoistic purposes.
That is the reason, why we rarely encounter atheists converting after an extensive dialogue. It's not what they are looking for. They have no motivation to convert themselves.
Why do we engage nonetheless? Because the Lord commanded it. If the body of Christ would not proclaim the truth, stones would.
How beautiful on the mountains
are the feet of those who bring good news,
who proclaim peace,
who bring good tidings,
who proclaim salvation,
who say to Zion,
“Your God reigns!”
