Why atheism is wrong

How atheism relies on "special pleading".

Atheism claims to be scientifically based but demands exemptions from accepted methods of scientific reasoning and from scientific laws.

Why atheism is self-defeating.

Atheism is rooted in the worldview known as naturalism (which says that there is no reality outside of the natural world). But naturalism leaves us no reason to think that we can rely on our reason. By dismissing God, naturalists have stripped away any reason to think that human reason can lead to truth. We should therefore dismiss naturalism as having no more value than the empty “convictions of a monkey’s mind” (in the words of Charles Darwin).
