I am not a follower of the atheist religion. Yes, atheism is a religion and I do not and cannot put my faith into it. The fact that atheists place their faith into their system of beliefs with great ardor and scrupulous conformity while sharing (evangelizing) their attitudes, beliefs and practices (teachings) with others, makes atheism a religion. In fact, it is a manmade religion which takes great faith to believe in due to their being no evidence whatsoever supporting it in anyway or at anytime.
I am not a disciple of the atheist religion because it takes too much faith to believe in. Yes, atheism takes faith to believe and the fact that you so strongly believe in it without any proof whatsoever that God does not exist and hold to the conviction that God does not exist is proof that it takes a lot of faith to believe in the religion of atheism. Would you bet your life on something that has no proof to support it?
I am not an atheist and this article is voicing the reasons why I am not an atheist. There are four criteria with which make up what I look for in a belief system and they must each adhere to logical consistency, empirical adequacy, and relevance of experience. The four criteria are: Origin, Morality, Meaning, and Destiny. If any of the criteria in my list fails any of the three tests, I have no faith in it. In my research the atheist religion does not meet any of my requirements needed to pass my four criteria thus I do not believe in it. What standards do you have before you believe in something as critical as this?
I am not an atheist and the following reasons are why I do not follow the religion of atheism. The first reason that I am not an atheist is that atheists are delusional in their thinking in that they do not admit that atheism is a religion. Atheism is a system of worldly beliefs. The second reason that I am not an atheist is that they do not admit that they have faith in their belief that God does not exist. I guess this is due to deep down inside that they actually have doubts about God’s nonexistence and thus do not want to actually take the step of faith and really truly say that God does not exist? Thus, an atheist in fact is stating that he has no faith in what he says is true and is really saying that he has doubts in his beliefs and that God may truly exist.
I am not an atheist as these first two reasons alone fail my Morality and Meaning criteria because there is no morality in lying to one’s self and there is no meaning in having a partial belief in something. The following reasons I am not an atheist cover Origin, Morality, Meaning, and Destiny which I have found that the atheist religion is badly lacking in each. How could anyone put their belief into something which fails any part of their standards of belief?
I am not an atheist because I do not believe in nor can put my faith in a man made religion as is atheism. Atheism in definition means, against God and no God. Atheists place their faith into a belief system that they created which teaches their followers that God does not exist. Not only do they say that God does not exist, they say that they know God does not exist. For anyone to say that God does not exist in all creation when mankind has no knowledge of all of creation to me shows the ignorance and arrogance of all followers of the atheist religion. How does an atheist know as fact that God does not exist when the atheist has not looked everywhere and most often has not even open-mindedly looked for God?
I am not an atheist because I do not close my mind to the infinite knowledge of wisdom there is which exists all around us. Followers of the atheist religion are so simple minded that they close their minds to free thinking, logic and truth. Although they shout and scream that they are highly educated and that they are ‘enlightened’ they are not so bright when it comes to actually thinking things through because they claim to know that God does not exist yet they have not gone beyond their own self limited worldly view to seek any evidence of proof one way or the other. How could anyone believe in something which has no proof?
I am not an atheist because I cannot accept the religion of atheism’s origins of the universe. When science from the ‘Big Bang’ along with its ‘radiation afterglow’ and its continued ‘expansion’ points to a clear beginning for the universe from nothing at all, the atheistic religion teaches that nothing at all caused it. Not only does the atheist religion teach that nothing caused the universe to exist, it teaches that all of the highly complex and extremely fine tuned environmental settings of the universe from gravity, oxygen levels, carbon dioxide level, the ozone layer and much much more are mere coincidence even though mathematically the atheist’s religion’s teaching it happened by chance does not add up. The atheist religion is teaching the wrong thing. Nothing comes from nothing and nothing is what rocks dream about. Again, followers of the atheist religion show an ignorance of reality and a lack of understanding science. How can nothing cause something out of nothing as large as the universe?
I am not an atheist because I cannot accept that the origins of mankind came from an accidental mixing of chemicals that spawned life which over billions of years became not only you and me but all other life too. Here again the atheist religion shows their ignorance of science as it overlooks the Second Law of Thermodynamics. You know this law because it causes your car to rust and you and me to get older. In time, all things fall apart in disorder and not fall together in order. In a longer amount of time things fall farther apart even with maintenance trying to keep it together. The atheist religion however teaches that for example, the DNA that we each have, came from simple goo mixtures and evolved to the highly complex systems you and I have in our bodies. Once again the followers of the atheist religion show ignorance of and lack of scientific understanding of just how extremely complex DNA actually is. They also teach in some cases that the universe is eternal; yet you and I both know that it cannot be because of the Second Law of Thermodynamics applies universally to everything which is why our Sun is running out of energy. How could anyone think their car would never run out of gas without someone filling the gas tank up from time to time?
I am not an atheist because I do not want to follow a religion that teaches selfishness as its core belief. Atheism is all about mankind being a god as atheism teaches that mankind is the ultimate authority and that no other authority above mankind exists. The religion of atheism also teaches that there is no life after death and that mankind should do everything that one wants to do here and now no matter what the cost because there is nothing more to hope for within the faith of atheism’s teaching. Why would anyone want to live without any hope of a future?
I am not an atheist because so much pain, suffering, death and destruction come from it everyday. Being a religion of selfishness, over time atheism brings about the worst in people who follow it. Not to say that some people who follow the religion of atheism do not live a life of total selfishness, the basis of being an atheist and following the atheistic religion’s teachings, dulls the sensitivity level of compassion to others of the religion of atheism followers to such low levels that many do not c
are what is right and what is wrong. In fact, history has shown that taking the religion of atheism to its ultimate levels of its teachings, brings about pain, suffering, death and destruction. Examples from the Twentieth Century are Mao, Hitler, Marx, and Mussolini who through their actions took the religion of atheism and Darwinism through their ultimate teachings outcome which includes racial bias and bigotry, class differentiation, and outright murderous genocide. Why would anyone want to be associated with a belief system that in its ultimate implementation causes genocide?
I am not an atheist because what I believe in my heart must make sense in my mind. The religion of atheism does not make sense in my mind and therefore I cannot believe it nor can I put my faith in it. Why would anyone believe something which does not make sense?
I believe in absolute truth of Jesus because only Jesus passes all of my criteria and I can easily and confidently place my faith into Jesus. I have researched all else and found it all to fail my criteria. Origin of the universe, all things on earth including mankind is discussed and clearly explained in the Holy Bible and scientific evidence has often proved it and has never proved it wrong. Morality mankind is clearly to follow leading to loving kindness to everyone including God is plainly told to us in the Holy Bible that if followed to its ultimate leads to eternal love. Meaning for life here on earth is described and explained in the Holy Bible along with examples to follow and examples of what not to do that if everyone were to adhere to would lead each person to a rich and fulfilled life. Destiny with hope of eternal love with a loving God is richly explained within the Holy Bible that we have a free choice of accepting Jesus Christ as the one who came to save us from the wrongdoings which we do each and everyday which if we do place our faith into Him, that we have hope for an eternal future of pure love with Him. Do you want to live without Origin, Morality, Meaning, and Destiny?
Jesus gives us hope of a future, life with vigorous excitement and love beyond anything you or I can ever give to anyone. I suggest that you too do your research and discover the truth about Jesus’ love for you. You can start your search for truth at Finding Truth Today where you will find many resources to help you get on your way to knowing the truth. Why would anyone not want to search for the absolute truth about Jesus Christ who loves us so very much that He freely and willingly gave His live up for us? What are your reasons?
