God also loves atheists

239 god also loves atheistsEvery time it comes to discussions about the question of faith, I wonder why it seems that believers feel at a disadvantage. The believers apparently assume that the atheists have somehow gained the proof, unless the faithful manage to refute it. The fact is, on the other hand, atheists are unable to prove that God does not exist. Just because believers can not convince atheists of the existence of God does not mean that atheists have gained the evidence. Atheist Bruce Anderson emphasized in his article "Atheist Confession": "It is good to remember that the vast majority of the brightest people who ever lived believed in God." Many atheists simply do not want to Believe God's existence. Rather, they see science as the only way to truth. But is science really the only way to the truth?

In his book, "The Devil's Delusion: Atheism and Its Scientific Pretension", the agnostic, David Berlinski, emphasizes that the prevailing theories of human thought: the Big Bang, the origin of the Life and the origin of matter are all open to debate. He writes eg:
"The claim that human thought is a result of evolution is not an unshakeable fact. It just concluded. "

As a critic of both Intelligent Design and Darwinism, Berlinski points out that there are still many phenomena that science can not explain. There is great progress in understanding nature. But there is nothing that - if clearly understood and honestly stated - requires disregarding a creator.

I know several scientists personally. Some of them are leaders in their field. They have no trouble reconciling their ongoing discoveries with their belief in God. The more they find out about the physical creation, the more it reinforces their belief in the Creator. They also point out that no experiment can be devised that can prove or disprove once and for all the existence of God. You see, God is the Creator and not part of the creation. One can not "discover" God by searching for it through ever deeper layers of creation. God reveals himself to man only through his Son, Jesus Christ.

One will never find God as the result of a successful experiment. You can only know God because he loves you because he wants you to know him. That's why he sent his son to be one of us. If you come to the knowledge of God, that is, after opening your heart and mind to it, and experiencing your own personal love, then you will have no doubt that God exists.

That is why I can tell an atheist that it is up to him to prove that there is no God, and not me, that he exists. Once you recognize him, you will also believe. What is the true definition for atheists? People who do not (yet) believe in God.
