I did have some time today to correct some of John's thoughts in a recent article about God and science. It is long... in-depth... with audio and videos added for affect and points made. If someone takes the time to read this post and listen to the accompanying media, they should have a good handle on how to begin to respond to skeptics in their life.
I was a Christian by birth, but awe of the Almighty really came to me as a student of science in college. And most of the evils in the world seem to me as a rejection of God in favor of Darwin, so I can relate to the author.
