I have encountered so many issues and contradictions between the belief of a Christian God and the rejection of it. Religion is definitely something I would not bother wasting my mind to divulge for. Our mind is a form of unexplainable intelligence! I am not a person, though, who always relies on substantiations, because I strongly believe that most people need more faith than rational assumptions.
One of my college professors, Aldino Jiao Gonzales, once told me that “there is no real Atheist.” No one is born an Atheist. They learn to disbelieve, just as one learns to believe. People choose to become Atheists as much as they choose to become Christians, alas they usually disbelieve by default. Hopefully, one becomes Christian because of evidence. Besides, evidences are just favorable components to a culmination; even one can say an evidence for this statement was amended. On that verge, what is the real significance of an evidence? The fringe, ethically, relies on the people’s understanding to know which side they will partake at. Atheists are the people who always need evidences in order to come up with a statement. Evidences, conceivably, affect the mindset, but people will always have a variety of different proclivities toward it.
3 Statements that Atheists always reason out:
1. God does not exist because there is no proof of his existence.
This is like trying to answer the question, “How can you prove that this cookie is expired when it has no expiration date and the manufacturer said it has an unchangeable everlasting taste?” For an Atheist, one would reason out, “No one really knows if God exists because there is no evidence,” but for a Christian, one would say, “No one really knows if God exists because there is not yet an evidence of his visibility, but I have experienced his evidence spiritually and mentality.” On those statements, Christians are usually lost in an intellectual debate against the belief of a God to Atheists because of the failure to show an “evidence”. To anyone, it is true that we do not have a visible evidence of His existence, but the statement is entirely irrational. Religion is a belief, not a form of science. It cannot require any evidences or some experimental process in order to arrive to a conclusion. You can never test assumptions. Belief is a natural acceptance or claim of something to be real without the need of evidences. This is why religion is a spiritual feeling formed by trust and faith. Faith is an assured belief in God or in the doctrines of religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than corroboration. That is why it is ludicrous to associate God’s existence with science.
2. If God exists why is earth such a brutal place?
One of the major reasons of the infestation of Atheism is the misconception of the real essence of human life. Is it not obvious enough that the earth is a milieu of cause and effect? There is a reason why poverty is still existing. There is a reason why a social hierarchy happens. There is a reason why natural disasters strike. If you scrutinize your deepest common senses you will realize that you could actually do something to change your life. Atheists often blame God for everything bad that happens on earth and subconsciously use it as a factor to thoroughly disbelieve in Him. They always incorporate the existence of God to the daily happenings as to like assuming ‘life is as easy as 1-2-3.’ If your mentality shouts, “God will do anything I want here on earth,” by no doubt you are a failure. Having a perfect earth that is quintessential to our wants is not what the reality is.
3. We are all going to die anyway.
It is true that we are all going to die, but the personal definition of death is what separates the boundary of outlook in Atheism and Christianity. If you believe that when you die you will just be non-existing or completely nothing, you are more likely to be classified as an Atheist.
