However, there are good and bad atheists, and in recent years we have seen an increase in bad atheists. These radicals go out of their way to try and censor the Bibles from being given to school children, and who sue Rick Warren because he was asked to pray at the Presidential Inauguration, or protest the presence of a nativity scene. Their agenda isn’t to promote atheism. It is the God-given right of every American to be an atheist if that’s what he chooses. But the new atheist’s agenda is to undermine the rights of those who have the freedom to worship the God who gave them life and liberty.
I wrote this book for the many fence-sitters who have been hoodwinked into thinking that a belief in God is just some sort of blind faith. There is a massive amount of credible evidence that proves God exists. There’s creation. You can’t have a creation without a Creator. It is scientifically impossible. That should be enough for us, but there is much more evidence. However, this will only be seen as evidence by those who have the ability to think. That’s why I called the book You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence But You Can’t Make Him Think.
What kind of research did you have to conduct to write your book?
I was in the unique position of having hundreds of atheists ask me questions via my daily blog, Atheist Central. I felt honored that they would bother to ask me how I know God exists, or why there is suffering, or how I can be sure that there is an afterlife. These are questions that almost every sane person asks, but few seem to answer in a meaningful way. I have tried to do that.
How do you deal with rejection?
Quickly. It’s part of writing.
Do you write mainly by day or by night?
