Write a 2-3 page paper (not including cover and reference pages) that responds to the following prompt:
You are getting settled into your seat for a very long plane ride home. As you get to know the person next to you, you learn that they are a devout atheist who believes that God is a myth that people have invented to make them feel better. After listening carefully to why this person does not believe in God, you have an opportunity to explain why you do believe in God. What would you say?
In your response you may wish to share your personal story or testimony of faith (if you happen to be a christian), but you must also share some objective evidence to support your faith in God, and back up this evidence with solid, academic sources. Points will be deducted from your grade if you fail to cite some of this objective evidence and the resources to support it.
Incorporate information from the reading assignments, supplementary reading material, class lectures, and personal observations into your paper. Use APA formatting and be sure to properly source and cite all references. Note: Please write this paper as an essay, not a dialog. Write as if you are reflecting back on your conversation with this person and reporting how you explained to them your reasons for believing in God.
