“Do you have proof for your claim?” – This is a popular question that most atheists love to ask a Christian believer. Atheists pride themselves in requiring proof for any Biblical view of life, creation and God. However, the interesting irony is that the atheist himself does not have any proof or evidence that disputes various Christian Biblical beliefs.
Does the atheist really lack faith – or does he actually exercise faith?
Atheism is a human opinion – but even opinions can be wrong.
Atheism is a “lack of belief” – but lacking belief in something does not prove that the thing you lack belief in does not exist.
Atheism, just like Christianity requires faith – because faith requires that you believe in things that you cannot always see nor prove.
Christians do not dispute that faith is an important component of Christianity – but the problem is atheists cannot admit their self-deception that atheism itself is a faith or belief system.
In fact, it would be true to say that it takes a great deal of FAITH to become an atheist than it does to believe in God. Atheism itself requires the suspension of reason & human logic so that the atheist can believe in things that he has neither observed, tested nor proved.
So the atheist needs to be asked this important question: “Do YOU have proof for your claim?”
Below are a few of the things that atheists cannot prove and may help reveal that atheism itself does not pride itself in scientific evidence or proof but that atheism is simply an ANTI-GOD FAITH / BELIEF SYSTEM.
5 THINGS ATHEISTS CAN’T PROVE
- Atheists Cannot Prove That There Is No God
Can the atheist honestly prove that God does not exist? Has he been to every planet in the solar system? Has he been to all the ends of the earth? Has he visited every star in the universe? Has he seen and experienced anything beyond the natural realm? Does he know everything about every subject known to man? Atheists CANNOT prove that God does not exist.
To claim that there is no God is not only arrogant – but it is foolish. Psalm 14:1 says “The fool says in his heart ‘There is no God’…”
Yes of course, the atheist might retort and say: “Can you prove that unicorns or the spaghetti monster don’t exist” or “The burden of proof is on the believer”.
Atheists consist of less than 4% of the population of people who believe in the existence of a supernatural deity.
Therefore the burden of proof is not on the majority but it is on the minority. The burden is on the 4% to prove that every other population that believes in the existence of God or the supernatural are “uneducated” as some atheists claim.
Christians do not preach that unicorns, or Spiderman, or that the spaghetti monster created the universe.
Christians speak and preach about the existence of God, a supernatural Being who created the universe. Christians preach that the natural was made by the Supernatural and that the EVIDENCE or PROOF of God is seen in the creation itself and that no human being is “without excuse” for not believing in God.
Romans 1:20 says For since the creation of the world His (God’s) invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse
- Atheists Cannot Prove That Non-Life Can Create Life
The atheist prides himself in science. Science indeed is a good instrument for understanding the method in which God’s creation functions and Christians have no problem with science.
However, neither science nor atheists can prove that NOTHING can create SOMETHING. Atheists pride themselves in requiring proof or evidence yet there is no scientific observable & testable evidence that non-life can create life.
Many atheists are inclined to believe in abiogenesis which is the theory that living organisms can arise spontaneously from inanimate matter. However, there is no scientific observable proof that abiogenesis is possible. All forms of abiogenesis are neither supportable is there proof or evidence. Yet the atheist currently BELIEVES this theory – a clear indication that it takes FAITH to be an atheist or evolutionist.
If non-life could create life, then this process would not only be historical, but it would be observable in the present time. It could be tested in the labs. To this day we ought to be observing new planets creating themselves out of nothing or new living creatures on the earth creating themselves out of nothing.
Atheists therefore CANNOT prove the origins of life came from non-life.
However the Bible tells us clearly how life originated and from whom life originated.
Genesis 1:1 says “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”.
God is the source of ALL life whether seen or unseen. Without God there would be no life. Only a Being more intelligent than creation itself could have created an organized system such as seen in the universe.
- Atheists Cannot Prove That Evolution Is Occurring In The Present, That It Occurred in The Past & That It Will Occur In The Future
The truth is this: Evolution is NOT happening now. Yet the atheist would have us falsely believe that evolution happened; evolution is happening and that evolution will happen.
Remember that the atheist prides himself in requiring proof or evidence for various claims. Yet hypocritically, the atheist has no proof that evolution is happening now in the present.
If evolution were a real and observable process then there would be MANY transitional animals, plants or forms that we could observe. We would for example be able to observe an animal that is half-fish and half-bird or an animal that is half-baboon and half-human. I can bet you that such examples sound ludicrous even to the average atheist – and if it does sound ludicrous – it’s because evolution itself is false and ludicrous.
Atheists and evolutionists have concluded that they have “evidence” of one kind of animal transitioning into another kind of animal yet they have no observable proof or evidence of such claims. Therefore the atheist CANNOT prove that evolution happened or is happening.
Instead what we can truly see and truly authenticate and observe is what God did in Genesis 1.
God made distinct kinds or categories of plants and animals with many varieties in each kind or category.
In Genesis 1:11-25 God made plants, trees, animals, fish and every living creature according to their kinds and God saw that it was good.
For example cats are a kind or category. Yet under the kind / category of cats we have a variety of cats, for example lions, tigers, cougars, cheetahs, domestic cats etc
Genesis 1:11,12NKJV – Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
Genesis 1:24-25NKJV– Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
- Atheists Cannot Prove What Will Happen When We Die
Are we just simply flesh and that’s it? Besides having a body, do we not also have a soul and a spirit? When our body dies, what happens to our spirit – where does our spirit go?
So the question is this: Is there life after death? The Christians says “Yes” but the atheist says “No”.
Atheists have NO scientific proof / evidence AGAINST the belief that man has a soul or spirit.
To deny the existence of a soul or spirit would be like a man thinks that a computer can function without software.
However, remember that the atheist prides himself in having scientific proof and evidence.
Atheists have no scientific evidence or proof that we will become nothing or seize to entirely exist when we die. Indeed their naturalistic view is that our bodies will simply decay or that the moment we are dead then that is the end.
The Christian believes by faith that he/she has eternal life through Christ and that he/she will be with Christ after physically death. Therefore Christians do not deny their faith.
However, the atheist denies that he has FAITH in the things that he CANNOT prove.
1 John 5:12-13NKJV – He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. 13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.
- Atheists Cannot Prove That They Know About All Things Spiritual
The atheist may dismiss the Christian & Biblical perception of God and life by labelling Christian views as being a “fallacy”, “strawman”, “uneducated” and the like. However, the atheist CANNOT prove that he is omniscient and that he knows everything in relation to both natural and supernatural matters.
Science itself is the study of the natural – NOT the supernatural.
By only focusing on studying the creation it would be irrational to presume that the creation does not have a Maker. For example, if a person were to only focus on studying the hardware & software of a computer it would be foolish to conclude that the computer existed without an intelligent inventor.
Yet the atheist has come to the irrational conclusion that all visible things that he sees and studies through the lens of science just simply managed to coherently and systematically exist and function without the hand of an Intelligent Designer.
It takes FAITH to come to such an irrational conclusion. Yet the irony is that the atheist prides himself in living according to “reason”, “proof” and “evidence” whilst having NO evidence of his own conclusions.
Hebrews 11:3 says “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible”.
The Bible clearly tells us that the natural things we see were made by the unseen / supernatural / spiritual.
Furthermore Romans 1:20 says “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse”.
The irony however is that the atheist uses faith and NOT the scientific evidence he prides himself in order to argue against the existence of God and all things spiritual.
Many atheists will claim that they used to go to church and that they were “former Christians”. However, no genuine Christian would ever conclude that God does not exist. Therefore the question is: were such “former Christians” actually genuine Christians in the first place? (To understand what a Biblical Christian is as defined by scriptures read What Is A Christian?)
BELIEVE IN GOD
If as an atheist you are doubting evolution and atheism, it’s important to know that God DOES exist and God does NOT reject anybody who comes to Him.
An atheist can learn about God and discover the wonderful plan that God has for his/her life by converting to Christianity. It’s through the Christian faith that we learn about the grace and mercy of God and the love that He has towards us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for our sins. Jesus paid for our sins (John 3:16).
The gift of eternal life and the opportunity to have a relationship with God is open to whosoever will be believe.
