Quick and thorough answers to the Big Book of Atheist Sound Bites*

Atheist: “I contend we are both atheists, I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.”

Christian:  So are single men virtually identical to married men with respect to marriage?  After all, they have “just” one less wife, and neither have married the other 3,499,999,999 females in the world.  Now, would you like to have a serious conversation about the most important things in life, or would you rather just throw out more fallacious sound bites?

How did the universe come into existence? How did life come from non-life? If there is really nothing immaterial, then consciousness, morality, etc. must be illusions.  So why do you make so many moral claims? If you “know” that atheism and Darwinian evolution are true, why do you get so upset that some of us “evolved” to believe in the evidence for the life, death and resurrection of Jesus? After all, if your worldview is true then Darwinian evolution is the only possible source for our Christian beliefs. We have no choice but to hold them. So why get down on your own worldview?

Romans 1:18–20 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.

*Not a real book, just a catch-phrase for the silliness masquerading as reasoning on the Interwebs.
