The Atheist in the video was indeed honest. There were two or three opportunities for his antagonist to drill down, which would or could have caused his brain to explode with contradiction.
Before to long the scientific rationalist will need a whole new set of words to stand on.
The atheist in the video was/is a student at Cornell University. There is no doubt in my mind that his beliefs have been formed by William Provine. He can be found on youtube professing.
Provine’s philosophy boils down to a few things:
There is no Free will.
We are pre-programed to do what we do. Dawkins says the same.
This is and can be the only logical conclusion for the Darwinist.
Will Provine passed away not long ago.
The war is the long war against God. Nothing new here.

The final chapter in my Christian journey was that of the existence of Satan. This is a huge challenge.
“Can God exist without Satan?”
” Can God exist with Satan?”
“Where do satanic influences come from?”
“Are they satanic?”
“What is Satanic?”
“Are morals objective?”
I understand the concept of a “Satan” that attempts to convince people that he doesn’t exist.
On a side note. The HBO series, True Detectives, addressed this issue.
It’s all about our culture.
It’s all about a story that can be believed.
It’s acceptance of indifference and non-sense for one self.
“Ghosts crowd the young child’s fragile eggshell mind”
“Blood in the streets of the town of New Haven”
“Spades dance best from the hip”
“He’s rich, got a big car”
“This place has everything”
For what is worth, Jim Morrison literally told his audience that they are idiots, and they Cheered.
“Let me tell you about heartache and the loss of God”
“Wondering wondering in hopeless night”
“Out here in the perimeter there are no Stars”
“Out here, We is Stoned,”
Sarcasm lost in the face of a self/group desire for acceptance.
As for the existence of Satan and the creation of Hell.
Every choice implies at least two outcomes. You can choose to love God, or not.
We can choose to ‘go our own way’ if we believe that there is no God, and that all we have is this span of time on Earth.
In the end, if that’s the path you choose, no one making that choice should harbor any regrets.
