Do you have a response to this article that I would find compelling?

Sure, it’s a set up, because I am predisposed to agreeing (pretty much completely) with this article.

But what I’m wondering is if there’s a response beyond “Because the Bible says so” as a thoughtful, measured response.

I’m not looking to get into a fight over religion. I’m an atheist and I’m nearly 100% certain that nothing will ever change that – I’ll admit that up front.

If I don’t believe in God, and if I believe the Bible to be a outdated and flawed fairytale, then referencing God and the Bible doesn’t work as an argument for me. So I guess I’m asking….what other arguments are there?
