OK, I cheated! This is not a thread from a Christian abandoning faith in God and embracing Neo-Darwinian thought... However, I am aware of the work of the New Atheists, and have considered their perspectives. From the various friends I have had discussions with, I would venture to say that If an atheist likes to pride themselves on anything, it is the commitment to truth even if the answers hurt. I just watched a very interesting short film called "The Atheist Delusion". Of course you could ignore it, but if you think about it, what has an atheist to lose by questioning the view that they are just an insignificant, specialised monkey clutching a mobile phone, crawling around on a planet of no particular importance? I offer an alternative perspective for consideration.
