Believe it or not, I meet a lot of atheists in my line of work. Some reach out to me simply to tell me I’m wrong, but many come lost, looking for answers. Both present interesting opportunities for conversation.
For the latter, I try to figure out what they do believe in, what inspires them, what they’re looking for in life, and try to guide them to someone tangible they can explore. Their openness to dialogue is always exciting to me.
The former are a bit different. Given their disposition and desire to compete, I know that I’m not going to make a lot of headway, and so I don’t usually push too hard. Instead, I try to turn the conversation on them with a simple question. That question… is this open letter I’ve posted to YouTube.
