A typical atheist posted on the last entry, "Do you have evidence of your magic spaceman?"

A more ignorant statement could not be made.

First, no one mentioned "magic", nor "spaceman". That poster is trying to make a point not with any facts, but with insults and insinuation. That is a sign he or she cannot make their point, and is ignorant of anything else.

Second, there is evidence of God everywhere. Literally EVERYWHERE. But I would counter with, "Do YOU have any evidence that there is NO God?"

Anyone who has followed this blog knows I have already pointed out a ton of evidence, including the simple fact that even if evolution happens, it CANNOT account for many things, most notably:

1) Inanimate objects that obviously exist, but cannot evolve, and

2) Inter-species dependencies.

While #1 may not necessarily require intelligence for its existence, #2 definitely does. For one species to develop independently of another, but in such a way as for each to benefit one another requires planning, thought, design. Intelligence. And even Einstein recognized that, and stated as much. So much for believers being ignorant. It would seem that it is the non-believers who suffer from that malady.

People who choose not to believe in God make that choice not because there is any evidence that points to a Godless universe, but because they simply are either arrogant, thinking we mere mortals are the kings of the universe (which is laughable), or they simply do not WANT there to be any God. They are afraid of God. He will judge them. If they believe, it would interfere with the bad choices they want to make, such as lying, cheating, adultery, abortion etc. So, it is easier to live that way, and live with themselves if they convince themselves that God does not exist.

But they do not realize that it does not work that way. The simple fact that they do fear the consequences of a God only proves they believe He could exist. If they truly believed there is no God, then there could be no fear of Him. Hence, they would not have to object when others do believe. Instead, they would simply smile at what they believe to be our folly, and walk away. No skin off their noses.

But that is not what they do. They object. They try to remove religion and God from the public square. They object to Christmas, and Easter. But if they are so certain there is no God, why bother to object at all?

The point is, most atheists are not really atheists. They are deniers. A true atheist has no need to deny God, because to him there IS no God. Why bother to deny something that does not exist? Bill Maher is the most famous denier. And a moron.

A denier, on the other hand, believes. But does not WANT to believe. And he hopes that by denying God, that will make him go away.

But saying that black is really white does not make it white.

Einstein said it well, when he said:

"I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangements of the books, but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God."
