Jerry Johnston Interviews Muhammad Syed on the Evidence for Christianity26 September 2016
Extraordinary claims without evidence? While capturing footage at the American Atheist Convention in Memphis for our documentary, I interviewed Muhammad Syed. Founder of Ex-Muslims of North America, Syed is an advocate for Muslims who have converted to atheism. I asked Syed why he converted to atheism rather than Christianity. He told me,
“It has the exact same problems that Islam does. It makes extraordinary claims that has no evidence to back it up. So the same claims that moved me away from Islam for example, creation, evolution anthology, look how you view the cosmos, how you view morality, humanity; all of those apply to all religions.”
I must counter Syed. The claims of Christianity are clearly evidenced and proven. Are you equipped with the answers? Could you help assuage the doubts of a perplexed man or woman? With our goal of helping Christians give a defense of their faith (1 Peter 3.15), Cristie Jo and I are devoting our time to developing digital products and resources that will assist all ages in their quest for biblical knowledge.
