Witnessing To An Atheist

According to this website, in order to get an Atheist to see the light is to threaten him or her with God's wrath.  This author actually has the guts (and the ignorance) to blame floods, hurricanes, cancer and a myriad of other misfortunes on God warning us.  Warning us of what?  Of something much, much worse... [insert creepy orchestra music here].

The author indirectly tries to scare us about Hell.  Yes, Hell, where the loving God sends you for all eternity if you even look cross-eyed at him.  Oh, but he loves you and even though he caused you to be sinful (he did design you exactly as he wanted you, didn't he?) he is going to punish you FOR ALL ETERNITY when you fail.

This website gets more wrong then it gets right.  The website describes evolution as a mathematical formula.  The formula they use is CHANCE x TIME = EVOLUTION.  This is categorically false.  There is no chance involved in evolution.  Natural selection is called that for a reason, otherwise it might be called "chance selection" or "natural oops".  I believe that this website falls in to the "misleading and ignorant" category, but might fit just as well in to the "dishonest" category if the author(s) was doing it on purpose.  This is the reason the Godless Geeks made their list of "Hundreds of Proofs of God's Existence".  (Note: this is a tongue-in-cheek list - not to be taken seriously, but I'm sure you've heard many of these before.)
