Atheism is a religion. Atheists act like Dracula confronting a cross when faced with the fact that their beliefs rely solely on faith. They hate the word faith, even though it’s all they’ve got. They try to make the claim that their religion is based on science, although actual science doesn’t support their claims any more than science can prove the existence of God. When they are called out for having faith, they’ll say something like, “An absence of belief isn’t faith,” yet their claim of an absence of a belief is a lie.
Atheists most definitely have beliefs, such as life starting somehow out of no life. Basically there were rocks, then all of a sudden a single cell organism came to life out of nowhere. This is called abiogenesis. A spontaneous generation of life where there was none. They use fancy words, like “primordial soup,” yet have no scientific evidence that any such soup ever existed and have no idea what it would be composed of if it did. They try to steer the conversation away from abiogenesis, to evolution. They can’t stand the fact that their belief in abiogenesis is rooted entirely in faith. There isn’t the tiniest shred of evidence that abiogenesis ever occurred and even if it had, there could be no scientific way to prove that God wasn’t behind it. Some atheists, such as Richard Dawkins have made the foolhardy mistake of trying to avoid the topic of abiogenesis by making the claim that perhaps aliens seeded life on Earth. Fantastic! So how did abiogenesis create the aliens? It must be noted that a single cell is millions of times more complex than anything we have ever created as mankind. It would be far more likely for a Buick to appear on Mars than for a living cell to have suddenly been constructed out of primordial soup.
Afraid to even debate abiogenesis, atheists often try to steer a discussion into evolution, because many scientists agree that evolution has existed. The fossil record tends to show a progression of species, however the sciences of paleontology and geology are far from perfect. There are two types of evolution, micro and macro. Micro evolution can be seen. We breed different types of dogs. They’re still dogs, though. Macro evolution, would give us something other than a dog when breeding dogs, maybe a bear. Macro evolution has no proven evidence thus far. The fossil record fails to show any true evolution from one kind of animal to another. This isn’t to say that it couldn’t have happened. Christianity in particular wouldn’t be threatened if macro evolution were a proven fact. It’s a moot point. Christians would not mind seeing the evidence. Atheists on the other hand have firmly held beliefs in macro evolution with very poor evidence to go on. That’s called faith.
One other problem with the fossil record is that it is based on a geological assumption made by Nicolas Steno in 1669, which is that sedimentary layers must be older the further down you go. It’s a logical assumption to make, but an assumption all the same and it wasn’t until the past few decades that actual experimentation has been performed to study how layers are deposited. Oddly enough, in flood situations all of the layers are laid simultaneously. You can see this explained very well here, but be prepared for a somewhat dry video. Flood Geology and Stratification Experiments. Geology is still taught in colleges based on Steno’s assumptions.
Regardless of what is ever proven scientifically in the fossil record about evolution, it remains moot. A God who is powerful enough to create an entire universe and a planet teaming with life could have easily developed evolution as well. Evolution could never prove or disprove the existence of God. Atheists turn to this topic merely to try to claim that they have science on their side.
One thing that science has always shown to be true is that there can never be an effect without a cause. Atheists have a lot of faith in the Big Bang occurring without a cause. Scientists and mathematicians have worked long and hard to determine the nature of the universe before the Big Bang and the consensus is that there was nothing. It’s hard to imaging nothing. Nothing means no mass, no energy, no space and no time. We are expected to believe, as atheists do with much faith, that in total nothingness, without any time, that all of a sudden nothing exploded into a Big Bang and produced everything, including time. It’s very important to grasp the absence of time before the Big Bang. Without time, there could be no before or after. There were no ticks or tocks. It would be impossible for there to be an “all of a sudden.” Without a tick and a tock there can be no advancement from nothing to Bang! The lack of time would prevent any change whatsoever. This means that without question, the Big Bang was an effect without a cause. Or was it? If a Creator is eternal and lives without the limitations of space and time that we are accustomed to, perhaps He was the cause.
One simplistic way to think of it is to compare the Big Bang, Creation, and even Evolution to a video game like The Sims. If the game was far more advanced and the characters actually had consciousness, you as the player at the computer could pause the game. Then you could resume the game. The characters in the game would never notice the pause. Time for them is determined by when the player decides to allow the game to run. The characters in the game would find it very hard to contemplate your ability as the player to simply stop time in their world while you get up to grab a beer. It would probably never occur to them that you could also boot up the game on a different computer at the same time and instantly create an entirely new Sims universe that has a beginning, that you caused by booting it up, but the cause of which would not be discernible by characters in that game. There are actual scientific theories that propose that our universe is nothing more than a very advanced computer simulation and that we aren’t very far from having the technology to do something similar ourselves if we had almost unlimited resources such as RAM, and hard drive space. The amount of those which would be required are astronomical.
So, what we know about atheists is that they claim that science is on their side, which it is not and that their beliefs in the origins of the Universe and Life are completely based on faith. They will never admit this faith though, but it’s obvious, so their denials are laughable. Those of us with religious convictions, such as Christians admit our faith. We don’t try to claim that we can prove what we can’t. At least we aren’t disingenuous about having faith. Atheists are liars, because they deny the faith which makes up their core beliefs. At least agnostics aren’t liars. They admit they don’t know anything. Remember all of this next time a rabid atheist tries to evangelize. They evangelize a lot!
