A “Sign” of the Times

So sorry rabbi… Recently a friend of mine gave me a short clip out of a local newspaper to read (see below) and asked my opinion about what it said.  My friend knows that I’m a Christian and where I stand on issues of faith, but I think he was trying to get me to see...

Starting a Grassroots Apologetics Ministry

Starting an Apologetic Ministry I had the privilege of speaking with Chris Arnzen of Iron Sharpens Iron Radio about the birth of New York Apologetics and how to start an apologetics ministry.  We know that "unless the Lord builds it, it's laborers labor in vain", so...

Beware the Hebrew Roots Movement

Hebrew Roots is dangerous! In my recent radio interview with Chris Arnzen on the Iron Sharpens Iron Radio Show, I was asked a question about the Hebrew Roots movement.  Although I've heard about the movement and knew some basic information, I promised to post some...

Evolution: Science Fable, or fact?

This hilarious video on evolution illustrates the absurdity of the Theory of Evolution and the consequences that follow.  On evolution, you have no significant value or meaning.  

Think God started Evolution? Think again!

The idea of theistic evolution has come under fire recently and rightfully so.  Several scientists and theologians have worked together to address the idea in a new book called "Theistic Evolution".  In it, they explain that the storyline of scripture, and scientific...

Atheists are trying to redefine what their position is by reinventing what the word atheism means.  As per the Merriam Webster dictionary, atheist means belief that there is no god, as compared to agnosticism which means a person who does not have a belief in a god.

 

If you lack a belief in a god, you are an agnostic, not an atheist.

This is so obvious that even atheist bloggers recognize it (see here – language warning).  Funny how atheists can’t even agree on what it is they are!

 

Below are nine conclusions that follow if you claim atheism is a “lack belief” in a god:

 

1. If atheism is just the lack of belief in God, then atheism is just a state of mind as Frank Turek points out

 

2. If you lack belief in god, you are just saying that I am not psychologically convinced.  So what, that offers no evidence for or against God.

 

3. Most people lack a belief in unguided evolution, yet no atheist would say that evolution is false or claim to be a-evolutionists.

 

4. If atheism is just a lack of belief in God, then rocks, trees, dogs and outhouses are all atheists just because they also lack a belief in a god.

 

5. The atheist who proclaims a lack of belief is really trying to avoid the burden of proof.

 

6. If you simply lacked a belief in a god as an atheist, then why are you trying to get rid of belief in a god?

 

7. If lack of belief in a god means you are an atheist, then Christians are atheists since they lack belief in all other gods except one.

 

8. You don’t write books about things you lack belief in!

 

9. If atheists truly lacked belief, they wouldn’t care that other people are theists!  They wouldn’t argue as vigorously as they do against the theistic position, but the fact that they do shows they do have a belief.

 

If you’re an atheist, come clean – you don’t believe a god exists and we know it.  You are not neutral, and neither are theists.  Use the skepticism you have on your own position and see how well it stands up (see this video).

 

Now, lets get back to discussing the reasons you’re an atheist.
