What Is Wrong With Atheism?

My comment on original post/

Silence of Mind

First, what is the definition of atheism? According to Merriam-Webster: atheism is “a philosophical or religious position characterized by disbelief in the existence of a god or any gods.” That is correct. Atheism is a religious position. My experience with atheists is that they rave on and on about religion. Second, God is defined philosophically as the First Cause. Thus, without God, nothing exists.

Atheism is a catastrophic failure of reason because by denying the existence of the First Cause, atheists must believe that nothing exists, which is the stuff of straight jackets and rubber rooms. Or atheists must believe that everything just happened all by itself. Everything just happening all by itself is as obviously absurd as a gaggle of chimpanzees spending a few trillion years trying and finally succeeding in typing out the works of Shakespeare. One study found that chimpanzees bang on the keyboard for a little…

    Definition of atheism

    1a: a lack of belief or a strong disbelief in the existence of a god or any gods
    Leave it to you to choose the second meaning and make it sound like a Religion rather than an opinion or position on a religious question. Dishonest.

      I saw that mike/ trust u are well?
      Anyway, well aware of the back and forth, with nothing ever settled, unless of course you would stand with others who have turned from darkness to light.

      Certain things are in fact settled. The 1st of Genesis perhaps? I think so. To be so graced with matter of fact beginnings, that no one can rightfully challenge. The original , purpose, and perpetuity, of the heavens above, and earth below. Man above beast, but Man under God. As it is. As it should be.

      Settled.

      But atheism? A poor excuse for not facing the music-

        Yup. Its been quite a journey since last we talked. But regardless, its not honest to misrepresent someone elses position, especially if its one you dont share. Integrity is important.

          It is my OPINION that there could be no other more worthy color of the sky than blue.

          Others may stupidly challenge my opinion. See where this goes? It is the ‘opinion’ of the court……

          Once more, some opinions are rooted in fact. Good opinions are far better than points of view which change on a whim.

          I have been resolute and have not changed opinion- after all, what puny man can challenge respectfully scripture? No one.

          Btw mike- the know it all’ moniker speaks a little too much, with the assumption that certain believers pretend to ‘know’ more than most.

          As for me, I actually know little- but what little I know I am certain.

          Which viewpoint is more substantive to reality…..

          Reality, huh. Do you still believe the earth is a stationary disk and not a globe?

          You are too funny mike. Whenever I post commentary on this or that, on ANY evo/ atheistic sites- invariably the host will try to put believer against another. I won’t have it.

          But Carol King sang ‘I feel the earth move under my feet.’ Wow, she has special senses not given to others, or she was inebriated.

          See how this works? You cannot refute what is common to man, so please stop.

    I’m so glad I was wrong. You don’t believe the earth is a stationary disk. And you believe the earth a globe. Glad you cleared that up for me. Thx

      Here’s a tip for you – I have ZERO in common with the atheistic world view- but you should be quite happy that you have so much in common with believers . That should startle both camps.

        I keep telling you, I’m not atheist. And one doesn’t have to be one to understand, appreciate and agree with scientific facts. Naturalism and theism are not necessarily mutually exclusive. Cheers

          You are a fence sitter mike plain and simple. Sorry, but there is no lack of information that points to any deficiencies in scripture or in Christianity.

          You may not like it, but your opinion is overruled by thousands of years of verified Information and common sense.

          As to cosmology, write your own dam post. Prove your thesis. Do it today. All I hear is bitching and lousy accusations- the petulance of that clown Degrasse comes to mind. Don’t be like him. Prove it. Discuss it. Be willing to face the music.
