Scientist Discovers That Atheists Do Not Exist

By: Curtis Ophoven 0 Comments   8/13/2014

The problem with self-identifying as an Atheist is that you have to be willing to live out its ideas, and that is impossible.   

According to a new study published at Science20.com, “[A]theism is psychologically impossible because of the way humans think,”

The article goes on to point out several other things like “people who claim to be committed atheists tacitly hold religious beliefs, such as the existence of an immortal soul” and the idea that somehow "justice will be served in the universe."   

When I asked my Atheist friend about this, he argued that Atheists do not control the established social constructs that are woven into the surrounding language and traditions, and so an Atheist may go along with the culture they are in for the benefit of social acceptance, but that does not mean they truly believe in these things.  

Clever response, I do say, but everyone faces cultural differences from their individual beliefs, so this is a common problem that is not unique to Atheists. Therefore, regardless of the surrounding culture, the questions of the supernatural and how we think about them remain and this makes it especially difficult for an Atheist. 

The problem for Atheism is that there is too much evidence in the world in which we live in that brings God back into the picture just as Romans 1:18-23 indicates.  The world we live in is constantly pointing to God and we cannot escape the world, we are trapped grappling with who he is and why he did what he did and what it means to us.  It is most difficult to ignore day in and day out, and much easier to concede, to give in and say – ok, there must be something out there.  But once that door is open, there are a lot more questions.  

The problem with Atheism is that it is an indefensible position; even modern science has revealed that we do not live in a purely material world, but a world of intelligent design.  

Sometimes people who don't want to believe in God, yet realize that Atheism is indefensible will go with a third option.  This is what Dennis Nomark did in a debate I watched last year, between a Christian and a non-theist who refused to identify as an Atheist. Does God Exist? - Frank Turek vs Dennis Nørmark.  I think Dennis refused to take on the identity as an Atheist for this very reason.  

In some ways, avoiding self-identifying with Atheism and becoming boxed into an indefensible position while still holding on to its ideas is an advantage.  It is like saying you know something, but you cannot put your finger on it and therefore no one cannot question you about it.  It takes the pressure off you to prove something because you are not claiming that you know anything, while the Christian is making a claim and is therefore forced to defend it.  

The reason people want to identify with Atheism is because it gives them a reason to reject responsibility to God.  It gives them a reason to be their own god, to do what is right/wrong in their own eyes and to be free from being accountable to God.  The only problem is there is so much evidence for God that is it a life long battle to keep yourself convinced otherwise.

Why Are Professors Liberal and Why Do Conservatives Care?

This book is an amazing study that reveals what people believe about academia is not true. Particularly, this book point out why a higher percentage of liberals and Atheists are professors vs. Conservatives and Christians. The reasons given by Academia, that the liberal ideology is a greater intellectual idea does not hold up to scrutiny. The evidence in the book makes it easy to see that the theory that intellectual people do not hold a Christian worldview – is a myth. The reason there is a higher percent of people in Academia with a non-Christian worldview is because the mind is hostile and intolerant of the righteous, just as scripture tells us, and it is that hostility that causes intellectuals to push Christian intellectuals out of Academia.

The Case for a Creator: A Journalist Investigates Scientific Evidence That Points Toward God

Former journalist and skeptic Lee Strobel has discovered something very interesting about science. Far from being the enemy of faith, science may now provide a solid foundation for believing in God. Has science finally discovered God? Certainly new discoveries in such scientific disciplines as cosmology, cellular biology, astronomy, physics and DNA research are pointing to the incredible complexity of our universe, a complexity best explained by the existence of a Creator.

Evidence for God: 50 Arguments for Faith from the Bible, History, Philosophy, and Science

In Evidence for God, leading Christian scholars and apologists provide compelling arguments that address the latest and most pressing questions about God, science, Jesus, the Bible, and more, including: -Did Jesus really exist? -Is Jesus really the only way to God? -What about those who have never heard the gospel? -Is today's Bible what was originally written? -What about recently publicized gospels that aren't in the Bible? -Is intelligent design really a credible explanation of the origins of our world? This book shows that is it more intelligent to believe in God then not to.

I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist

This book shows why atheism and other non-Christian views require a lot more faith than Christianity. Geisler and Turek build their case from the question of truth all the way to truth of the Bible. Along the way, in a readable and often entertaining way, they debunk relativism, agnosticism, atheism, Darwinism and New Testament liberalism. This books also systematically show why the New Testament documents are telling the truth.
