|Atheists And Atheism|
The danger here is that many Christian organizations have adopted Atheistic dogmas into their own dogmas.
Atheism is a belief system that is based on a universal negative (holding to a Universal Negative is irrational unless you have it by revelation from Someone Who knows all things and is qualified to say that something doesn't exist) and an argument from ignorance (arguments from ignorance are also irrational.). Atheism depends on the twin dogmas of Naturalism and Materialism, both of which are also irrational beliefs based on universal negatives and arguments from ignorance. Atheism is also dependent on Evolutionism, a fabrication about the history of the world that requires tolerance for a belief that conflicts with several known laws of science, ignoring a lot of the evidence, explaining much of the evidence with convoluted logic, and a dependence on the dogmas of Old Earthism and Uniformitarianism. Uniformitarianism is based on a universal negative and an argument from ignorance plus ignoring much or the evidence or explaining it in a way that is irrational. Old Earthism is a fabrication of the history of the Earth that must rule out the catastrophic Worldwide Flood of Noah's day of which the Bible speaks and which is so evident in geology. Old Earthism is based on circular reasoning and wishful thinking. If Atheism were true, there would be no right, no wrong, no free will, no logic, no science, and no real love. Atheism claims that all things are the result of randomness, so there is no reason to believe that are perceptions are even real. If you take God out of the picture, you cannot know anything.
It is totally irrational for a person who believes in Atheism to want to impact society or to try to convince others to their viewpoint. It is logical for and Atheist to not care, since their paradigm doesn't allow for right, wrong, good, evil, logic, or any other such thing. Their worldview is one of randomness. However, all Atheists know that God existes and they know that He is just. They just don't want Him to be their God. They are turned over to their own reprobate minds, and those minds are under the control of created but fallen principalities and powers. One great physical proof of the spiritual realm with God and spiritual beings on one side and those created but fallen principalities and powers on the other side fighting for control of human minds, is the religious zeal of Atheists. Go on the blogs and you will see Atheists fighting for their beliefs. They have seen it as important to take control of court systems, news systems, education systems, government grant systems (particular for scientific grants), and every form of communication. They seek to block every other message. That would not happen if they truly believed in the non-existence of God. They know that God exists and have set out in a war against Him.
Atheism is the belief, against all evidence, in no God. "A" is "not" or "un." Theism is God or belief in God. In the Bible, God calls Atheists "unbelievers" or "the ungodly." God also tells us that Atheists know that God exists but that they refuse to hold Him in their knowledge. Atheists disobey what Jesus identified as the greatest commandment: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, soul, and mind," which results in them committing the greatest sin.
Atheists should not be thought of as the enemy. As Christ had compassion on the masses, saying that they are like sheep without a shepherd, so we ought to look at the Atheists with compassion and pity their empty lives that are devoid of meaning. They are forced to try in vain to create meaning for their lives. They do not want to accept the true reason that God created them. They do not want to move at His command. So they are outside of the glory of God, unable to sense His presence.
These are people who are crying out for meaning. Atheists face a serious problem of meaninglessness. They are often very self-righteous, the only kind of righteousness that is available to them since they have rejected the free gift of righteousness that God gives. Many are desperately trying to fill this void with a religious zeal for spreading their doctrine of Atheism. This is just an attempt to try to create some kind of meaning for their lives. Their philosophy eliminates the possibility of real meaning or purpose, so they feel that they need to do something.
Some of them become nasty, argumentative, and actually a bit loopy in their logic. Keep in mind that most of the things they are saying they have picked up from a few Atheistic evangelists such as Hawkins and the like. The person you are talking to probably doesn't even know how to find out if something is logical or not... though they probably use the word, logic, a lot.
