The Atheist Self-Contradiction
Atheism is by definition self-contradictory.
Atheists espouse “open
mindedness” yet start off with a repudiation of God. If they were truly
“open minded” they would consider at least the possibility of a God.
They say they have no gods yet obviously worship the twin gods of
science and rationality, when they aren’t worshiping themselves as gods.
There is no rational way possible they can declare there is no God
unless they are gods by the conventional definition. They would have to
be everywhere present, all-powerful, and all-knowing, because God could
be residing somewhere they can’t get to, or know about, or have the
power to travel to. They say Christians cannot prove God exists
(although we can) yet cannot prove that God does not exist.
C. S. Lewis earlier in his life was an atheist. But he later said
“atheism turns out to be too simple.”
Nothing good comes from atheism. What little good there is gets borrowed
from other religions, mostly Christianity. Out of the first 108
universities founded in America, 106 of them were for training pastors.
Whatever you want to say about the training of pastors, it was still
thought that pastors had to be educated. The first free clinic in
England was started by Christians (1746, John Wesley). Christians during
the reformation and after were the vocal advocates of education, because
they wanted to encourage people to read the Bible. The abolition of
slavery in the UK and U.S. was pushed by, you guessed it, Christians.
Nothing Compassionate About Atheism
Atheists claim to be compassionate, yet give very little of their
precious money to charity, even non-religious charities. One study from
found that in 2006 the typical no-faith American donated just $200.00
while the average active-faith adult (defined as having gone to church,
read the Bible and prayed during the week preceding the survey) gave
$1,500.00. Even when church-based giving is subtracted, the active-faith
adults gave double the dollars. Three times as many atheists as
Christians gave nothing at all.
Atheists love to speak of war and death in the name of Christianity,
yet lie when confronted with the many-times-greater war and death caused
by atheism. They do this by saying that the atheist versions were not
“in the name of atheism.” Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Lenin, Pol Pot, Castro,
etc. have caused more deaths than all the so-called religious wars
combined, and more in “peacetime” than in war. These men were all
atheists, either by direct statement or by action. Totalitarians have
all been atheists. Hitler, it is claimed, was a Christian, but was not.
He used Darwin’s theories to justify his death camps, and used the
national church (church is not the same thing as Christian) as a rubber
stamp to further his policies of war, eugenics and terror.
Atheists also ignore the millions of deaths by abortion perpetrated
by atheist Margaret Sanger and others of similar thought. She was the
founder of Planned Parenthood and a dedicated eugenicist (improving the
quality of the human race by selective breeding and elimination of
