I have a couple of things that I’ve discovered that are a bit of a mystery to me and others. One, the most common reason I have been thinking about the topic has been a lot of questions that I’ve asked myself over the years that I think would be answered if I went with the book at the beginning of my life.
The most common question I get is, “Is it true that every time you have a conversation with an atheist (or non-Christian), you have to actually have a conversation with them?” I really like that question because it forces me to think about the conversation at the heart of my faith. I never think about the conversations I have with atheists or non-Christians because I already know what they have to say and I have already decided on how I want to respond.
In reality, atheists and non-Christians aren’t like that at all. They’re often very honest, open-minded, and friendly people who genuinely listen to you. I’ve had the great pleasure of talking with atheists and non-Christians in person (and on the phone) and have found that they all have a great deal of the same questions, and a wide range of opinions on the same topics.
For many of us, talking to atheists or non-Christians is a lot like talking to a friend. The only difference is that we usually have to share them with each other. In fact, we often feel like we’re talking to the same person but have different perspectives, and that’s because we’re not the same person.
However, for some reason atheists and non-Christians are very good at talking to each other. It might be because they’re different groups of people, or because they’re different cultures, or because they’re very good at asking questions. One thing atheists seem to be good at is asking us questions.
I was going to write a post about technology, but I don’t see the need to do it. We’re talking about technology here. The whole point of this blog is to talk about technology, but it’s not really our business. On the plus side, I’ve noticed lately that there are a lot more technology blogs out there, so I’m going to assume the trend will continue.
I think it’s fair to say that almost every single blogger out there is a technology geek. But that doesn’t mean we’re all doing it. Sure, I’ve seen people talking about their favorite technology, but the main purpose of most of them is to tell us how cool it is that their favorite technology sucks. The other side is that they don’t seem to care how bad their favorite technology is as long as it’s cool.
I don’t want to be too harsh on technology bloggers, but there are a lot of them. I’ve been reading more technology blogs than I’ve been writing about movies, TV shows, and books (I haven’t even started on that yet).
I get the feeling that the people who write about technology just don’t care about it. They’re just so busy writing about the cool things that they have.
