There’s this >news article< and >video <circulating social media by apologists that supposedly ends atheism for good and all. There’s only a couple things wrong with that assumption. It doesn’t. Even if it did, religion would still face the yet unsolved and knotty issue of whose god is the real one, who’s doing it just right and who isn’t. Worse yet, >christians< > don’t agree< either. >Nor does noted scientist and atheist, theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss. <
All that aside for the moment. Let’s consider for a moment that you have slain the mighty dragon of atheism with this ridiculous sophistry of Metaxas. Now what? Have you demonstrated god exists and is manifested in the natural world? No. Well, what have you done? What wondrous thing have you accomplished by silencing atheism? You’ve quieted dissent. For the moment.
Why do you suppose people whistle past the graveyard at night? It’s a fear mechanism. We both know it does nothing in reality. Your doubt and fear are your greatest enemy. Grow up. Stop whistling at atheism. You could end it honestly by demonstrating god exists. Why not try and lead with that for a change?
I have yet to see that happen. Could it be they can’t? Hmm.
