My guess is that they are all in the young adult youth group at their various churches.
They are all between the age of 15-26 unless they have been lying.
I don't think that they have been lying about their ages. I say that because of the smugness which reflects young adults that think that they know something but really don't.
They come here at the encouragement of the director of their group. They have pat answers for rebuttals.
Have you noticed that they say that they are going to tell us something that we don't know, that it will make us become christian? Yet they don't ever tell us this something right away. Instead, they ask a leading question hoping our answers are like the ones on their scripted pages that their youth director gave them.
So the next thing that happens is they are surprised by our responses. This causes them to do one of two things.
1) Never come back and become what we call "drive-bys"
2) The run to their youth director to find out how to respond (this takes about 3 days).
So, in essence, we are never debating with the "new member", but instead the youth director.
So next we are hit with proselytizing and cherry-picked biblical scripture and nonsense from intelligent design pseudo-science propaganda and or a flood of YouTube videos.
Now people often get mad at me because of how I deal with these kids. But have you ever stopped to really assess what is actually going on?
That is my take on it. I may be wrong, but I don't think so...It's a jungle out there!
