Atheist Role Play

This atheist role play by Brett Kunkle was quite an interesting experience.  Though i'm not completely sure about the "lying vs. deceiving" distinction that he made, I can imagine how effective this demonstration was for the students.  If I have no ethical convictions on the matter as I think more about this, I may consider doing something like this in the future on various venues; whether youth groups or classrooms.  However, the important thing will be for me to spend some time refuting myself after having dismantled their faith.  Since I'm more experienced in my dealings with Jehovah's Witnesses, I could imagine role playing that part much better.

Anyway, I hope some of you will take some time to watch this and especially the reaction in the end where Brett reveals his identity.
