Ep. 18 – Atheists Need to Argue with Emotion

In this episode of A Matter of Doubt we continue our discussion with Ashley. She argues that atheists should approach debate with more passion and emotion. Before a person will respond to logic or evidence, she says, one must first care about the topic and truly understand the emotional depth of what’s being discussed. Our approach must therefore bring about a visceral response before anything else. Is this not the approach from pastors that theists are more accustomed to hearing? Will such an approach rid us of the all-too-common claim of elitism or condescension?
