Why Atheism is Nonsense Pt.2 - Ignorant of the Definition of "Atheism"

Is Atheism simply "the lack of belief in a god"?

Is Atheism "the lack of belief in a god" as many contemporary atheists, such as the late Christopher Hitchens, would have you think?

Or is it a POSITIVE CLAIM TO KNOWLEDGE that needs justification to be accepted and believed?  If the claim of Atheism is a that the idea "God exists" expresses a false proposition, then it is a truth claim that must be defended rationally. Sadly, most atheists aren't even aware of this, and like Christopher Hitchens, simply attempt to dodge the question rather than giving positive arguments and proof for Atheism.

Remember:

"The Absence of Evidence, is not itself Evidence of Absence."

 One only need to reflect upon scientific investigations, and criminal detective work to see this.  In addition, there is not an "absence of evidence" with Theism, as there are great and robust intellectual demonstrations of God's existence. 

A few examples would include the following philosophical proofs:

- The Moral Argument

- The Kalam Cosmological Argument

- The Leibnizian Cosmological Argument

- The Thomistic Cosmological Argument

- The Design Argument

- The Argument of Mathematical Applicability

- The Argument of Logical Applicability

- The Conceptual Argument

- The Argument from Desire

- The Argument from Beauty

- The Modal Ontological Argument 

- The Historical Argument of Jesus of Nazareth's Life, Death, and Resurrection

As I've said before, I simply don't have enough "blind faith" to be an Atheist.  I need to have good logical and rational reasons, that are compatible with reality, in order for me to subscribe to a particular philosophy or worldview.  Only the Christian Worldview passes the test!

Why Atheism Is Nonsense: Pt.1 - "No-thing is actually Something"

This is one of the many reasons why the "intellectual price tag" of Atheism is too high for Theists:  Nothingness is counted as something.  

The amazing thing is, it's not even mentioned that philosophically this is an incoherent idea, since it violates the Law of Non-contradiction (A cannot be A and -A in the same way or at the same time). 

Sadly, although many of these atheistic thinkers and scientists, such as Lawrence Krauss, see themselves as supremely logical and pursue science on the basis of logical inference, they themselves make rudimentary errors of the first magnitude.

Philosophically, atheism is intellectually nonsensical, logically contradictory, and mentally incoherent.

 For these reasons, and many others, I don't have enough blind faith to be an Atheist.

Atheism's Achilles Heel: "Scientism"

Do most Atheists hold to a self-defeating view of Science?

Here we will examine the logically self-defeating claims of "Scientism", and how many of today's atheistic researchers subscribe to this erroneous view of science.  We will also go over more that  a dozen highly qualified modern scientists who hold very strongly to belief in a Creator God.

It is vital to have a good handle on this faulty concept of learning truth about reality.  Especially since it is endorsed today by many at the University.  Learn how to refute "Scientism".

Have an Intelligent Faith!
