Not saying my testimony isn’t an effective way to personalize my experience and get a conversation about Jesus going but I often wish it were a little more dramatic, like the one this guy shares.
There is proof the resurrection of Christ happened just as the Bible says it did.
The existentialist, on the contrary, finds it extremely embarrassing that God does not exist, for there disappears with Him all possibility of finding values in an intelligible heaven…

All we can do is
So we dance
To the music of pitiless indifference…
“A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word DARKNESS on the walls of his cell.” – CS Lewis –

The point of “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God’” is that it is an impious, sinful heart that will deny God. The atheist’s denial flies in the face of much evidence to the contrary, including his own conscience and the universe he lives in.
This argument is heard quite a bit these days and takes several forms, with one of the most common being: “I contend we are both atheist. . . .When you understand why you dismiss all other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.”
To say that man can reason correctly and cogently apart from having the Bible at the foundation of his thinking sets man up as the standard and the judge over what is true and what is not true; he becomes the ultimate epistemological authority and not the Bible.
