An atheist friend of mine said the same thing- that Christianity could be good for some people, weak-minded people, like prison inmates. I don't get it. If I were an atheist, I'd take a stand for education and believe that no one should be taught false info. Maybe the problem with the atheist is that they don't have a positive narrative to offer, so rather than offer a negative atheist viewpoint they prefer a false positive-Christian viewpoint. If I were an atheist, I'd tell them to focus on a positive atheist message- like developing a positive secular humanist outlook... thinking about the great potentials that humans could achieve.

Yes, that was an excellent article. And for me, this is the type of thing that is far better evidence for the existence of God than any of the popular science or philosophy arguments.

Here's a great article on how the gospel changes people and societies. This flies in the face of charges from Dawkins and other so-called New Atheists. The replies to the article at the bottom are interesting, too.
