The only real doubts about God’s existence come from sin, from a psychological unwillingness to face facts.


God is abundantly, transcendentally, painfully obvious even to pagans
— because otherwise they would not have bothered inventing gods if they did not know, deep down, that they were made for worship, designed by a designer, built by a builder. Modern atheism springs from the wealth and plenty of the industrial revolution, men who think they can live without God, who then go looking for excuses, flimsy ones, not to believe in Him: Marx, Darwin, Freud.

Your Say

“God is abundantly, transcendentally, painfully obvious”…that the need to convince atheists, and theists alike, of his existence never, ever ends.

But good news, we’re all “infidels” to those that worship the cult of death - Islam. Now pass the whiskey and bacon.

I have no problem with agnostics. Recognizing there must be some sort of God but not being certain about more than that is not unreasonable: it requires more than evidence to have faith. Certainly faith is not devoid of evidence, the "leap of faith" is a stupid lie created by philosophers trying to work the limits of naturalism into the transcendent. But there is a point at which you can go no further without the gift of faith.

Atheists are intellectually lazy or simply obstinate.

Atheists are basically perverts who wish to be able to extol their perversion's on the world. They love doing what is repulsive to society and in doing so feed their perversions. For a long time they had to hide what creeps out normal humans. Until the liberals started banding together and performing perverse acts together ( Art, Boy Scout leaders,Transsexuals,etc,) and in doing so convinced themselves that since so many do this horrid act then it is not so horrid after all.
Which can only mean that the politician that promotes these things must also be a pervert. Hello Liberalism. Remember that is how Clinton was caught was when people started noticing Monica in a lot of his photo opps.

@Chris -
"Atheists are intellectually lazy or simply obstinate."
Nothing a good hard punch in the face wouldn't fix.

"... the "leap of faith" ... not clear on that, whaddaya mean?

That's the nice thing about reality though, consequences are immediate and proportional: a short'n sharp feedback, no room for dithering excuses.

The "Leap of faith" is the idea that you have to simply believe in the supernatural because there is no evidence or rational basis for belief. It presumes that the existence of God is impossible to discern through any means other than faith, so you simply blind yourself to reality and reason and step off the edge of the cliff like Indiana Jones in The Last Crusade.

In reality, there is plenty of rational basis for the existence of God, truth, and spiritual reality. It is only an idiotic assumption that reality can only be grasped through the senses and scientific measurement that presumes you must abandon all of that to believe.

I've noticed that around the internet, its the atheists who are the most rabidly religious, zealous, and likely to proselytize. They bash Christianity with wicked glee in defiance of politeness, staying on topic, or even reason. Its a matter of furious faith for them, and they cannot shut up about it.
