4 Ground Zero Of Faith “Christianity has been successfully attacked and marginalized…because those who professed belief were unable to defend the faith from attack, even though its attackers’ arguments were deeply flawed.” - William Wilberforce, Real Christianity

5 Skeptics’ Strategy 1.Use ridicule and mockery to label people of faith as anti-intellectual or irrational. 2.Set up a false dichotomy between science and faith, telling people to choose one or the other. 3.Keep the debate one-sided by not allowing a dissenting opinion in the public arena, making sure the only places where expressions of faith are allowed are in strictly religious settings.

6 Sadly, It’s Working 1.In 2007, 83% of millennials said they never doubted God’s existence. 2.In 2012, the number dropped to 68%, a 15 point drop. 3.More than half of the young people in America who attended church will drop out after they leave high school for college. - Pew Research Center Studies
