I am a staunch atheist and actually anti-religious. I believe most religious persons due to 'faith' actually are not rational and therefore mostly incapable of a trustable rationale. Should I invest time & effort to explain my position to others (i.e. believers)? I understand you cannot reason someone out of a position they didn't reason into. The thing that frightens me most is the fact that these people vote! Is this just an exercise in futility? Like debating Ray Comfort??

Bryan,

Well, I haven't finished the book yet, but frankly I don't think there's any one statement that's a silver bullet to convince a young earther. Some people insist on NOT being convinced, no matter how much information you give them.

Having read Dawkins' new book and enjoying your chapter by chapter review, What do you think would be a definitive statement to not necessarily prove, but perhaps 'enlighten' a young earther?
