First Christian Worldview Organization Summit Ministries Encourages Christians to Defend Faith with Intelligence, Love

Manitou Springs, Colo.— In the U.S., thousands of atheists and secularists are scheduled to converge on Washington, D.C., on March 24 for the Reason Rally, called the largest gathering of its kind. Experts say atheism is becoming more than simply a denial of God. In the meantime, atheist philosopher and writer Alain de Botton demonstrates this assertive atheistic thinking by proposing to build a 150-foot tower—a “temple to atheism? of sorts—to celebrate a new way of thinking about atheism, as opposed to what he describes as Professor Richard Dawkins’ “aggressive? and “destructive? approach to non-belief in God.
