Back off Atheists, We Were Born This Way

Defending Truth Apologetics

Even though I run the risk of repeating an idea I have expanded on before, I just simply couldn’t help myself on this one. Due to some recent comments by noted atheist Lawrence Krauss, I felt it necessary to point out what may be a somewhat unnoticed inconsistency in the worldview of such people.

Here is the problem as I see it: If atheism is true – as people like Lawrence Krauss and his belligerent band of followers so adamantly proclaim on their mission to silence any religious person who disagrees with them – then we have no free will. Ask Lawrence, I am sure he will tell you as much. But if we have no free will, then whatever we think is not our fault – we were born that way. Since being “born” a certain way can be used to justify all kinds of things in our world today, I figured I would claim it for theism.

A world where God does not exist, is a world where all life is the product of unguided, biological and chemical processes. Everything we think, feel, and believe would be the product of some purely natural chain of events within our brains, which we have no control over. This is a view called determinism, which is really what an atheist is left with if they are to be consistent. The funny thing about this view, is that I have never, ever, ever, ever, ever……..EVER found one person who can hold it consistently.

If the smart position is atheism, as the atheists certainly claim it is, and atheism entails determinism, then every atheist who holds the view should have no problem BACKING OFF the religious community for holding views they really have no control over anyway…
