John, the atheist who accosted our Christian list recently, and I have been
corresponding off line. He is actually polite and does not appear to bite,

Is there anyone on the list up to being John's offline debate opponent?

this is real. That God set up this hologram so thoroughly that a tree
appears to be aged, even though it isn't. Certainly, if Adam was created,
would have appeared to have years he did not have. It isn't such a leap
go to the hologram theory.

When you (and other Christians) start talking about other worlds and
false realities, you lose me. It's all about Naturalism for me, we
shouldn't try to confuse or complicate things any more than we have to.
