I don’t believe atheists exist.
Saying, “I don’t believe in God” is easy.
Believing there is no God is difficult.
Atheists are intellectual contortionists.
They twist words like “faith”, “belief”, “design, “science”, and “religion” into meaningless blobs.
They demand evidence for truth that rational people just assume.
Ultimately, this is what caused Anthony Flew to finally concede that God exists.
“…By far, the heaviest challenge to [atheism] came from America. The modal logician Alvin Plantinga introduced the idea that theism is a properly basic belief. He asserted that belief in God is similar to belief in other basic truths, such as belief in other minds or perception (seeing a tree) or memory (belief in the past). In all these instances, you trust your cognitive faculties, although you cannot prove the truth of the belief in question. Similarly, people take certain propositions (e.g., the existence of the world) as basic and others as derivative from these basic propositions. Believers, it is argued, take the existence of God as a basic proposition.” – Anthony Flew, There Is A God
Atheists push Christians around for our unsupported “faith in God”.
It’s time Christians start pushing back.
- Atheists possess unsupported faith in logic.
- Atheists possess unsupported faith in their senses.
- Atheists possess unsupported faith in history.
- Atheists possess unsupported faith in reason.
- Atheists possess unsupported faith in science.
So the assertion that atheists are purely informed by “evidence” is…
Atheists try to hover in philosophical limbo denying they hold any “beliefs” about God.
They’ll even assert that atheism is not a “belief” but a “lack of belief”.
Intellectual contortionists, remember?
Atheism remains a belief even after they’ve mangled the word.
For an idea of the ferocity of atheist faith, read this NYT article.
Why would the atheists exert such effort to help Anthony Flew maintain a simple “lack of belief”?
(In Richard Carrier’s letters to Flew, he sounded like a Baptist grandmother pleading with her gay grandson.)
Stuff like this is why I say two things with absolute confidence.
- Atheists don’t exist
- Atheists won’t admit it.
