I just accidentally ran across your little essay.  I am a youth who strongly believes in God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, contradicting your point that youth no longer believe.  I find it ironic that an athiest such as yourself, who claims not to believe  (by the way, even Satan believes in God, even if he doesn't obey him), took the time and effort to learn the story of Christ and share it.  At the same time I thank you for it.  You may have unwillingly planted a seed in the heart of an individual, or even yourself.  You just shared the gospel, something we like to call, desciplship.  I pray for your soul, that you may one day discover the truth.  To end, I have just one question;  why are you so active in defending your position?  It has been my experience that when a person defends a position as strongly as you seem to, that they are really trying to convince themselves that they are right.  I wonder if this means that you are afraid to admit what truth you have discovered.  Many people have tried and tried again to prove the bible false, only to prove it correct in the end.
