Christians Say the Darnedest Things: There’s No Evidence There Isn’t a God

Why are there atheists? There is no evidence that there isn’t a God. Why then do atheists staunchly defend their atheistic identity? Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World, admitted that the belief in “no god” freed him to live the way he desired:     

I had motives for not wanting the world to have a meaning; consequently I assumed that it had none, and was able without any difficulty to find satisfying reasons for this assumption . . . For myself, as no doubt for most of my contemporaries, the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation . . . [from] a certain political and economic system and liberation from a certain system of morality. We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom.   Huxley chose the religion of “liberation” and meaninglessness. But does denial lead to liberation?

The Polish poet, Czeslaw Milosz, confessed that the atheistic religion offered another form of freedom:   · “a true opium of the people is a belief in nothingness after death—the huge solace of thinking that our betrayals, greed, cowardice, murders are not going to be judged.”   Atheism provides “liberation” from the fear of judgment. As such, it is a religion which requires a constant vigilance against our accusing conscience, which testifies otherwise. Consequently, this religion does not bring peace. Instead, it pits the atheist against himself in an exhausting battle to suppress the obvious.

In contrast, it is the love of Jesus that has enabled me to accept my unworthy self because He does! I am now at peace. The battle has ceased.

    Omg, look at his screed. Atheism is just a lack of belief. Secondly, self awareness, christianity is the belief system that pits one against oneself. It takes anything natural, fun, and healthy in normal people and makes them crimes that deserve eternal torment. I would say “bless his heart” but “fuck off” seems more appropriate.
