Atheism Rationally Explained :-)

by Steve Ray on February 21, 2020

ATHEISM: The belief that there was absolutely nothing and nothing happened to nothing and then nothing magically exploded for no reason, creating everything and then a bunch of everything magically rearranged itself for no reason whatsoever into self-replicating bits of random stuff thrown together by chance which then turned into dinosaurs who crawled out of the muck. Makes perfect sense to me.

And then you came along…

Only to someone who knows nothing.

Atheism is a stupid premise when it’s honest, and dishonest when it’s not stupid. Any thinking person will realize that they can’t prove God doesn’t exist. How would you go about proving something like that exactly? You can’t. You might wish he didn’t; you might opine he doesn’t; you might even bet he doesn’t; but you’d be wrong to say you’ve proved it. None of those are proofs.

michigancatholic, St Thomas took atheism seriously, so it can’t be that stupid.

He gave two reasons for atheism, the problem of evil, and the fact that the universe appears to run on its own without need of an outside force. The Summa Theologica answers both objections to God, but neither answer is one that would immediately be obvious to someone who hasn’t read his answers.

Frog + Beautiful Princess = Handsome Prince
(this is fairy tales)
Frog + 20,000,000 years = Handsome Prince
(this is evolution)

The basic premise for God is that we would not be doing what we are doing unless something started us along the way. There had to be a creative force to set things in motion. If that creative force was not the “first” than another must have been the creative force and on and on. The beginning or whatever process was started has to go back to the creator God we worship and the one that made Himself manifest in our culture’s Salvation history.

Even an accident needs a beginning. Sad that atheism does not see that. Pray for them.

It is always discouraging to see theists disparage a non-existent version of atheism. If you're going to claim it's irrational, it would pay to understand it first.

Or is that asking too much?
