Some say Christianity is just a crutch. But let’s turn the question
on its edge for a moment. Is atheism an emotional crutch, wishful
thinking? The ax cuts both ways. Perhaps atheists are rejecting God
because they’ve had a bad relationship with their father. Instead of
inventing God, have atheists invented non-God? Have they invented
atheism to escape some of the frightening implications of God’s
existence? Think about it.
