Goals in nature point to God

Posted on January 20, 2016 By

The production of living things relies on goal directed (or “teleological”) processes, and goal directed processes can only be accomplished by a mind. Atheists must sweep goal directed behavior under the rug in order to do away with God.

Atheism’s problem of evil.

Posted on January 11, 2016 By

The existence of evil is frequently presented as a problem for theism, but in reality, it is a problem for atheism…a devastating problem. Evil can only exist as a deviation from good, much as crookedness can only exist as a deviation from straightness. But what is the source of goodness, and who or what determines just what good is?

Take atheism for a test drive!

The misperception that atheism is based upon logic, and that Christianity is based upon blind faith, is the result of a deceptive definition of faith. Specifically, atheists frequently portray Christian faith as blind faith, as opposed to well reasoned faith.

But a key problem for atheism is that inanimate matter doesn’t have meaning or purpose.

Secular myth: Science and God are competing explanations.

Secular myth: “Science and God are competing explanations for such things as the origin of life and the origin of the universe. There is no need to cite God as an explanation, since science explains such things without the need for God.” Reality: This commonplace atheist reasoning commits what is known in philosophy as a category error because…

Atheism and the curious case of the universal acid.

Posted on December 14, 2015 By

“Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded!” Self-refutation is an attribute which atheism and the preceding humorous comment (attributed to baseball legend Yogi Berra) have in common. For example, the famous atheist philosopher Daniel Dennett describes Darwinism as a “universal acid; it eats through just about every traditional concept [such as Christianity] and leaves in its…
