a belief in god
Contrary to atheist rhetoric, it is actually DISBELIEF in God that requires adults to play games of make-believe …games that rival those of those of children in their measure of naive credulity.
Darwinian evolution is often declared to render belief in God unnecessary. But this is absurd because Darwinian evolution DOES NOT EVEN ATTEMPT to answer the really important question: How did life emerge from non-living matter? It is difficult to overstate the entertainment value that can be derived from watching highly prominent atheist biologists trying to answer this question. Francis Crick (famous as the co-discoverer of the DNA double-helix), for example, cited INTERVENTION FROM SPACE ALIENS as the source of life from non-living matter in his book Life Itself.
Contrary to what atheists would have you believe, Darwinian evolution is actually a NON ISSUE when it comes to the question of the existence of God. It will come as a surprise to many that CHARLES DARWIN HIMSELF endorsed theism in his autobiography.
Atheism runs into a brick wall when it comes to providing explanations for several crucial questions.
Religion should be abandoned because it motivates killing—argue atheists. But the first problem with this argument is that “religion” is a notoriously slippery term. It is therefore impossible to rationally categorize God-believing church attenders as “religious” and atheists as “non-religious.”
Secondly, the most prolific killers in all of human history were the Communists and Nazis. Communism is an officially atheist political philosophy, and the Nazis rationalized their killing with atheist philosophy.
Everything with a beginning requires a cause. This is the Law of Causation, without which, science would be impossible. Atheism has therefore relied on the premise that the universe is eternal (without beginning), and therefore does not require a creator….no origin, no Originator. But modern physics (including Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity) declare that the universe DID have a beginning.
