In debates, Christians seem to be certain about their faith. Do they ever have doubts? If a Christian ever became convinced God did not exist what would they do?

I don’t believe in God for the same reason we don’t believe in unicorns or fairies.

I think that the age of the Earth as the bible says it is very questionable, and things like the flood are just not real.

Is it possible that morality is a byproduct of human consciousness?

Answering Atheism
Today’s popular champions of atheism are often called New Atheists, because they don’t just deny God’s existence (as the old atheists did)—they consider it their duty to scorn and ridicule religious belief. But there’s nothing really “new” about their arguments. They’re the same basic objections to theism that mankind has wrestled with for centuries. We don’t need new answers for this aggressive modern strain of unbelief: We need a new approach. In Answering Atheism, Trent Horn responds to that need with a fresh and useful resource for the God debate, combining a thorough refutation of atheist claims with a skillfully constructed case for theism based on reason and common sense. Just as important, he advocates a charitable approach that respects atheists’ sincerity and good will—making this book suitable not just for believers but for skeptics and seekers too.
