Atheism an Assumption Based Faith
The atheism faith is based on at least two assumptions that cannot be proven. And yes, it is a faith because it is an idea that exists in the human mind and is supported by other human beliefs. The idea that it is a non-belief is nothing but atheistic sophistry. Calling it a non-belief is like calling it a non-idea. Just some more nonsense.
Let’s look at a couple their assumptions. The first one being that there is no God. No one can prove that there is no God for in order to do so they would have to be everywhere in the universe at the same time and also outside of the universe at the same time, for the very place that they were not, might be the very place that the Uncreated One is present. They would also have to know everything there is to know in the universe, for if there was one thing that they didn’t know it might be that there’s a God. In essence, they would have to be God in order to say with certitude that there is not a God. The atheist always has to leave a small possibility that there might be a god, in which possibility itself negates the very idea of atheism. However, out of fear of the camel getting his nose into the tent, many pretend to deny the possibility altogether.
The second assumption that I have found in most atheist’s is the belief that they are smarter than those that believe in a God. I have found this trait even in those who seem to be friendly towards religion. Of course, this is an assumption that has no scientific basis. In fact, recent polling of scientist’s indicate that the split is about 50-50 as to whether or not they believe in some kind of higher power. There is also evidence that at the higher levels of IQ there is about equal numbers that believe in a Higher power. Some believe that the American philosopher and psychologist William James was the most intelligent man in recent times and of course he was a believer. I have read estimates that his IQ was twice that of Einstein’s. Many people believe that Chris Lagan, a believer, is the smartest man alive at the present time with an IQ of over 200. Of course, this does not prove or disprove the existence of a God, but it does prove the atheists second assumption that they are smarter than believers, as totally wrong.
The only argument that an atheist has, if it can be called an argument, is that the human mind can create alternatives to the God hypothesis. However, alternative narratives are neither evidence, nor proof that a position is right, they are simply positing another position.
