I think what atheists don’t realize is they prove God with every statement they make.
Without a supreme absolute lawgiver, we could not rationally debate. In a truly unguided, evolutionary world – your arguments would hold no water with anyone else, because there would be no unchanging standard to compare your logic with my logic. Since logic is defined, is immaterial, and unchanging – we CAN debate. That is impossible in an unguided, evolutionary world. You are arguing for unchanging, absolutes while arguing against them. Your position is contradictory to your own worldview. You have to borrow from my worldview of absolutes to even argue against me.
Atheists cannot give a fully rational argument for the existences of constants such as laws of logic in a truly unguided, evolutionary worldview. If everything in the universe is the result of unguided processes, how can logic evolve – and even if it did evolve, doesn’t that mean that logic is still evolving? Therefore if logic is still evolving – how could we logically debate anything? Perhaps my perception of logic is more evolved or advanced than yours? You say the sky is blue. I’ve developed a mutation that allows me to see the true color of the sky is green. How do I convince you who haven’t evolved that trait?
Here’s the truth, the absolute truth. The sky is blue. It is, it always has been. It is unchanging. That is what every scientific observation and logical deduction shows. We have no reason to believe it is or will change. It is absolute. Evolutionists cannot believe in absolutes, yet they argue with you using them. Every statement they make proves a supreme lawgiver, and also aligns with scripture: “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts” (Jeremiah 31:33).
- Believer: A person who believes in the existence of God.
- Agnostic: A person who isn’t sure whether God exists or not.
- Atheist: A person who doesn’t believe in the existence of God.
To say that there is no God requires absolute knowledge. Knowledge of not only our 4 known and understood dimensions but all the higher dimensions as well and that would be impossible for a 3 dimensional creature such as yourself. However, If you had absolute knowledge then yes God would exist, because you would be God. On the other hand, to say that there is a God only requires personal experience or an understanding that the design in creation warrants a designer. But ultimately there really can only be 2 types of people, believers and agnostics. Those who have seen first hand or can see evidence that gold exists in China and those who believe that gold doesn’t exist in China, but can never really be sure that this is so.
“For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.”
Romans 1:20 ESV
“The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
Psalm 14:1 ESV
