Atheistic scientists present evolution as a random and mindless process…but this view is based upon outdated science, as well as unverifiable and unscientific assumptions.
Atheism is frequently promoted as a “scientific” belief system, but atheists would be well advised to abandon this line of propaganda in light of the fact that what constitutes science is in a constant state of flux. Biologist Lynn Margulis, winner of the U.S. Presidential Medal for Science, put it best in her book What Is Life?:

Astrology gives way to astronomy; alchemy evolves into chemistry. The science of one age becomes the mythology of the next.”
The philosophical arguments against miracles are circular and incoherent. Further, denying the reality of miracles requires one to declare the experience of hundreds of millions of people to be not credible.
Atheism MUST deny the existence of the immaterial self (the soul) because if consciousness can exist independent of matter (referring, of course, to the matter that makes up the human brain), then there is no reason to disbelieve in an immaterial, disembodied conscious being such as God.
But, unfortunately for atheism, there are very powerful scientific and philosophical reasons to believe in immaterial conscious beings.
Frank Turek and Norman Geisler make an excellent point in their book I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist. The Second Law of Thermodynamics poses an insurmountable problem for atheistic explanations of the origin of life from non-living matter: “…nature disorders, it doesn’t organize things (the fact that nature brings things toward disorder…
In If the Evidence for God is So Strong, Why Are So Many Smart People Unconvinced, I discuss the ideological bias against theism which is pervasive within much of academia. Much deception of the general public is achieved when academics present ideological assumptions against theism as scientific conclusions conflicting with theism. Relevant to this subject,…
