Charleston’s premier atheist, Herb Silverman, loves a good debate, especially with the Holy City’s throngs of religious faithful. He especially likes when they toss Bible passages at him to reinforce their views.

In a favored game, he will throw back a lesser-known passage that contradicts the Scripture they’ve quoted.

“They’ll say, ‘That isn’t really in the Bible.'” Or, “You’ve taken that out of context.”

“But I usually cannot get them to tell me what that context is,” said Silverman, a mathematics professor emeritus, author and one-time gubernatorial candidate. He isn’t trying to convert them all to atheism, nor does he think they are wrong on all points
