I've been having an extended conversation with an intelligent student about, well, everything.
But especially the Christian world view.
He's a self-admitted narcissist. He's into literature and "absurdist theatre." He isn't persuaded by my well-researched, compellingly logical, even self-evident arguments for Christianity. His life is completely subsidized, and he's on a self-indulgent vacation. I guess if the world economy holds up, and the entire human race is not plunged into depression -- or nuclear war -- he will live out his life in the elite world of the secular University as a "Professor of Literature" and mocker of the "Protestant Work Ethic."
He's returning home, back east, and I doubt he'll ever want to be in Southwest Missouri again.
So in the hopes that someday he might take human existence seriously, I've created a website to which he can return to our conversation.
Nothing is there yet; I'll add to it in the coming days.
