The Great Faith of an Atheist

"The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God." Psalm 53:1

Do you have enough faith to be an atheist? Atheists often counter with the argument that it doesn’t take faith to believe in nothing. Of course they mean that by not believing in God that they believe in nothing. But in reality no one believes in nothing. The very fact that they have concluded in their minds that God does not exist is something in itself. Atheists may not believe in a divine Creator but they do believe and accept the reality of things which is something, not nothing.

Atheists do not like to admit that their philosophy is a belief but it really is. Christians and Jews for example, believe that the universe and everything in it was made by a divine Deity - Atheists acknowledge the universe and everything in it but hold the belief that it came into existence and upholds itself without a Creator. Atheists cannot prove that there is no God therefore Atheism is a belief that God doesn’t exist and the belief that the universe has no Creator - not an established fact.

Perhaps the strongest evidence for the existence of God is life and the inquiring mind of man. The probability that the evolution of life by random chance processes is so unreasonable, (some say impossible) that it takes great faith to believe. Actually the very concept that living things which have specific design traits and fulfill specific purposes in nature defies randomness.

Most common cells in your body are making approximately 2000 proteins every second. A protein is a combination of 300 to over 1000 amino acids. An adult human body is made of about 75 trillion cells. Every second of every minute of every day, your body is organizing on order of 150 thousand, thousand, thousand, thousand, thousand, thousand amino acids into carefully constructed chains of proteins. Every second, every minute, every day. It defies logic to conclude that such complex systems - systems that work together in such a precise and harmonious way came about by nothing more than random processes. It seems plainly absurd, unless of course you have the great faith of an Atheist.
