Yesterday two Jehovah's Witnesses came to my door. I took this opportunity to debate with them.
An hour later, after explaining the process of evolution in detail, debating wonders of the cosmos and even having to CORRECT him (The other guy was
less knowledgeable than him and said very little) on scripture he explained to me that the bible was science, handed me a magazine which proposes that
evolution is fake, or due to (UN?)Intelligent design and told me he is interested in coming back.
This magazine is full of pseudo-science, and I have left notes debunking the slanderous lies within it.
My question is concerning the most talkative of the two. He was amazed at the passages I showed him in his own bible, even dismissing laws of God
UNTIL I pointed them out. Stuttered through his proof of biblical facts and "science" and admitted this was the way he was raised and WOULD be a
muslim if Pakistani and such for other religious countries. This with the dumbfounded look on his face during our talk seem to suggest, at least to me
anyway, that he has major doubts about his own faith... Hence him wanting to return and talk?
And now thre question! If he does come back, how can i best approach him concerning his faith without making him angry or uncomfortable. I don't need
specific arguements, just opinions and advice on how to... Help him? (I dont have the time to work through re-phrsasing this due to being at work, so
anyone who is offended can refer themselves to the word of Jesus concerning the mocking of your faith, which I'm not trying to do anyway)
This guy seems incredibly lost and brainwashed, yet nice enough for me to have an urge to help/educate him. He has not even been taught basic science.
This is not just a tragedy, but child abuse. How can anyone knowingly keep facts away from children who are so impressionable!?
Thank you. I will check this after work.
P.S: He is 19 years old. Just incase my post gave the impression he was much younger
