I think it's comforting to go back to the famous formula "God became man so that man might become God."  If all the Orthodox Christians were putting this through practice, there would be no atheism.  It gives a whole new meaning to "lights of the world and salts of the earth."  We don't prove God's existence by arguments, even though they're entertaining and somewhat helpful, but most importantly we live God and we have God in us.  No greater proof for the atheist and agnostic than to see the God in you.

God bless you.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
