I won’t speculate as to whatever deep-seated factors could be driving those in that particular position, but my point is that they are definitely a tiny subset of the ‘non-believing’ population.Whereas the average person often assumes that the Bible can’t be trusted because of doubts about the validity of its (Genesis) history, and by giving folk the chance to voice their reasons, not only does it mean that one can see where the problem lies, but also point them to the potential answers.The proof of the pudding in such questions is of course what actually happens.So a person using the approach in that article would occasionally meet someone armed with smart repartee, but then they would usually be people who had already erected massive barricades against belief anyway, for whatever reason.We'll talk about my holy book this week, and we'll talk about the Bible next week."
