So, while I was surfing the web this evening I saw an article written by a very hateful atheist which asked a very interesting question; why don't Christians ever come up with new arguments? He listed a couple of them like, it takes more faith to be an atheist, or how can an atheist have morals without religion, you know, the usual suspects.
While I spent a couple of milliseconds pondering this deep question the answer became clear; because atheists have never answered them. Not ever, not even a little bit, that's why. Shouldn't a person have to answer a question before they get off the hook? Atheists either give an, "Oh, please" or "That's not true" or "That's a ridiculous question", but they never answer them. Most of the time they attempt to ask you a question that you can't answer, thinking this somehow vindicates them, but again, they never answer these questions. So I'm going to throw some questions out there, I will be very intrigued to see if any atheist actually tries to answer them.
- Do you really think that atheists don't use faith in their world view? Seriously? Creation deniers say everything came from a great explosion, and the evidence of this is the expansion of the universe. In their defense they do not claim the "big-bang" to be a fact, but they do say the evidence points in that direction. And I say, "Oh, what faith you have!" Let me ask you; has anyone ever measured the universe, ever? Does anyone know where it ends? The answer is "no" on both counts. Of course we haven't measured it, because we don't know where it ends. So atheists; no faith is involved here? None? You don't take, by faith, the word of scientists when they claim to know the universe is expanding? No faith?
- I first want to say that atheists have morals, I would never imply they don't, but my question is this; where does your moral standard come from? You will say it comes from society, okay, so we get to vote on what is right and wrong? If society says euthanasia is morally acceptable, does that mean it is? And while I do believe atheists have morals, I do believe there may come a day when they do not. Let me ask you; why do atheists try to get Christians to let up on their standards? Why do most atheists believe prostitution and abortion are okay? Why do atheists generally think that children should be taught to make up their own mind about basically everything, even though they possess no experience that would allow them to be capable of making up their own mind? This is important. Why do atheists not want children taught what is right and wrong? Why do they want children to believe no absolute authority for right and wrong exists? I believe it is to tear down the moral fabric of our society. I know atheists will not under any circumstances answer any of these charges, but that will not change the fact that they are true. So again, where does your moral standard come from? And if you don't have a moral standard, who is to say what your morals will look like in twenty years?
- And while we're talking about absolutes, how can we not have absolute truth? This is an impossibility. Either we have absolute truth, which would require abosolute truth, or we don't have absolute truth, which would require absolute truth. The latter is true because to say no absolutes exists, is an absolute, so which is it atheists? Don't worry Christians, they won't answer.
For the sake of time this evening, I'm only going to ask you three simple questions because these will no doubt keep you busy if you actually attempt to answer them.
Here's the HardTruth.
I know atheists don't like it when Christians ask these types of questions, and if I was an atheist, I wouldn't either. And Christians, we should understand that atheists have no answers for these questions, just semantics and rhetoric. But believe it or not, we do have answers, here is the one for atheist morality:
For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;
You see Christians, we are the ones with the answers, not them, and they will never have the answers, but we always will. And because of this we should be confident in our faith, and that's the HardTruth.
