my neighbor is an atheist, his wife is a believer and they are trying to raise there kids with an open mind. Both very nice people, I like them both. Both kids seem to be losers, dad is unemployed, wife is the depressed earner for the family and yet they are filthy rich and very sad to be around.

I don't offend very easily and wouldn't be offended by any of these questions/statements. More then likely, I would just laugh and explain as best I could as to why it doesn't make any sense.
great video, and this guy seems to be a sincere decent person. What I have always respected about Atheists is that they actually think into there views more then most religious people. I grew up in a strong Christian family and it was pounded into our head to think a certain way. When you thought differently or asked hard questions you were always looked at as someone lacking faith. I do believe there is a greater understanding of life but im not 100% sure that just Christianity is the only way there. If so then God (Jesus) set up other regions of the world to never have a chance.

That's why we are told to spread His good news to all the world. And when our job is done then He's coming back. And you know what that means

Luckily he chose you to be the ambassador GL4x4, probably because you're such an excellent wordsmith.

There is only One truth and if you get offended by it, it is not my problem, it's yours.
If I was to wrap my words in pretty ribbons and bows it would not be the truth. IMO it would be a lie.

Eh? That makes about as much sense as evolution does to bible thumpers.
