The Catholic Me

I was in a discussion about God the other day with a young person who considers himself and atheist. Early on in the discussion he stated that he didn’t know if God exists, but conceded that He might.

At the point where he revealed that he is an atheist, I suggested that he was agnostic rather than atheist because he didn’t know for sure one way or the other. He was adamant that he was atheist because an atheist is one who really doesn’t care one way or the other.

A bit more back and forth ensued, and he left the conversation “knowing” that he was right and I was wrong.

Sigh…

This got me to thinking that there may be others out there who might need some clarification…

From Webster:

Definition of atheist

:a person who does not believe in the existence of a god or any gods
