It appears the Christians are starting to prepare as much as the atheists are for this year’s Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne, Australia.
I can’t be bothered rebutting any of this article… But I will share a few quotes that made me laugh.
There is little doubt that the media will give full-on coverage as they did last time, with features and interviews sympathetic to the atheists and antagonistic toward God.
It’s unlikely the media will give Christians opportunity to balance atheistic misinformation about science and the Christian faith.
At the time of the last Atheist convention, CMI sent an open letter of invitation/challenge to the convention organisers for a public creation-evolution debate. We got a rejection back the same day—which didn’t surprise us, except for possibly the speed.
News of the convention prompted Dennis Prince, publisher, editor and pastor, to create a one-off newspaper to cover the issues and proclaim the greatness of the Creator God. He was concerned that people who are ill-equipped and gullible could be easily swayed by their academic talk.
“These are not your average atheists”, Dennis said. “These are militants with an agenda—to rid the world of Christianity and the freedoms and benefits it has won over the centuries.”
