  1. Differing World Views Atheism Agnosticism Pantheism Panentheism Deism Theism

  2. (1 Corinthians 15:58) Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. (NKJV)

  3. (Matthew 7:6) "Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces. (NKJV)

  4. (1 Timothy 6:3-5) If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words, from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself. (NKJV)

  5. (1 Peter 3:15) But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; (NKJV)

  6. (Romans 1:20) For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, (NKJV)

  7. “We Are At War!” Daniel Dennett Christopher Hitchens Richard Dawkins Sam Harris

  8. The Greatest Battle Today: Science vs. Religion “The great conflict of the 21st century will not be between the West and terrorism. Terrorism is a tactic, not a belief. The true battle will be between modern civilization and anti-modernists; between those who believe in the primacy of the individual and those who believe that human beings owe their allegiance and identity to a higher authority; between those who give priority to life in this world and those who believe that human life is mere preparation for an existence beyond life; between those who believe in science, reason, and logic and those who believe that truth is revealed through Scripture and religious dogma. Terrorism will disrupt and destroy lives. But terrorism itself is not the greatest danger we face." - Robert Reich, Professor of Public Policy at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley

  9. Christians are “Losers” "Christianity is a religion for losers!" – Ted Turner

  10. “A Sham and a Crutch for Weak-Minded People” "Organized religion is a sham and a crutch for weak-minded people who need strength in numbers.  It tells people to go out and stick their noses in other people's business.“ – Jesse Ventura

  11. “Religion can be very, very dangerous.” "Faith can be very very dangerous, and deliberately to implant it into the vulnerable mind of an innocent child is a grievous wrong."  The God Delusion Pg. 308 “Those who wish to base their morality literally on the Bible have either not read it or not understood it...”   The God Delusion Pg. 237 - Richard Dawkins

  12. “All religions and all churches are equally demented” "All religions and all churches are equally demented in their belief in divine intervention, divine intercession, or even the existence of the divine in the first place.“ - Christopher Hitchens

  13. No world view more reprehensible than a religious believer. “There is, in fact, no worldview more reprehensible in its arrogance than that of a religious believer: the creator of the universe takes an interest in me, approves of me, loves me, and will reward me after death; my current beliefs, drawn from scripture, will remain the best statement of the truth until the end of the world; everyone who disagrees with me will spend an eternity in hell...." ; Page 76

  14. “Theology is nothing more than a branch of human ignorance” "Theology is nothing more than a branch of human ignorance.  Indeed it is ignorance with wings!"  Pg 173

  15. His Mission: Educate the Masses "I hope to show that the very idea of religious tolerance - born of the notion that every human being should be free to believe whatever he wants about God - is one of the principal forces driving us toward the abyss."  Pg 15

  16. The Importance of Belief in a God

  17. (Psalms 14:1) The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good. (NKJV)

  18. 8 Tips For Converting the Skeptic: Pray for them and for the wisdom to know what to say. Make certain you are convicted of your beliefs. Make rational arguments. Show that you are genuinely interested. Be patient. Lead by example. Be firm without being mean. Don’t assume things.
