I’m sure you may not understand this either, but what most atheists don’t seem to get is that as a Christian (repetitive, I know) I believe science is a tool, a gift from God to learn of His Creation.
Many an atheist tells me that science disproves God. I feel like that would make their position a bit hypocritical. I can’t help but feel like I’m debating a hostile religion when I talk to a lot of atheists (mostly of the Twitter breed).
Call me crazy, but there never seems to be such a thing as a nice Twitter Atheist, honest Twitter Muslim, nice Twitter Catholics are rare, and as for Protestants (and I can vouch for this being one), too easy to paint into a corner when we treat the subject delicately.
