    The bias needs to be addressed on both sides. I was, and still am to some degree, going through a crisis of faith but I was the opposite from the topic of the video, I wanted there to be a God. Therefore, it was critical for me to sterilize my personal confirmation bias in my journey to find the truth. One thing that I had found troubling was when I would talk to a believer and they succumbed to what I would call wishful thinking. I would agree that Christianity offers a preponderance of evidence, but I also think that it is naïve to suggest that there is a home run answer to every question. Offering a non persuasive argument positioned as a certainty has always led me to view the person as adopting a blind faith. Conversely, someone that simply states that in these few instances, it isn’t entirely clear but here are a few thoughts to consider, and then noting that you build your faith on all the truly compelling answers and use the earned trust to bridge the gap across the uncertainty.
    In order for a skeptic to even weigh your arguments, you must first be considered a trusted source, and admitting that you don’t have every answer shows a level and rational thinking and those are the people whose opinions carry weight.
