Amen to that, brother. I follow the truth because I KNOW it's the truth, not because I'm guessing it is, and to turn from the truth would be foolishness.
I don't think it helps matters that evolution is treated in the scientific community as absolute fact even though it's just a theory, and most atheists disregard other theories on the face of it without giving them the due process needed. In that regard, they're acting just like Christians who don't look at any evidence but are instead the notorious "Bible-thumpers" most atheists assume Christians are.
Hmm, Evidence That Demands a Verdict, huh? Interesting. I'm always looking for more scientific and historic proof of God's existence, so I shall be looking into this book, when the time allows for it.
And I totally agree with your sentiment that hard proof, rather than fuzzy feelings, should be used to back up God's existence. I mean, yes I have some personal reasons, and I know that God's spoken to me personally many times in my life, but I don't use that as evidence when talking to others who don't believe in God. That's just my own private revelation, when talking to others I much prefer using cold, hard facts.
And I also am a bit of a skeptical loner too. I generally don't go along with something unless I'm absolutely certain that it can't NOT be true, which I guess makes me a man of little faith, but whatever. And I've also come to the realization that, even though I will absolutely carry out God's commandment to spread His love to others, I just don't like people in general. There are some with similar interests (like yourself) who've I've come to like, but for the most part I just don't like other people.
