The simplest reason why you are an Atheist
Ray Comfort, the producer of the Atheist Delusion movie, asked students if they were atheists. Those who participated contradicted themselves even after they realized that a creator exists. Their reason was simple: they want to hold on to hedonism. Although Ray is both criticized by Christians and Atheists, he did expose one of the main reasons someone would choose Atheism over faith in God.
In this Youtube movie feature, Ray exposed the fallacies of high profile atheists Richard Dawkins. Dawkins is arguably the poster boy for Charles Darwin who claims “Nothing created everything.” It is an Atheist delusion to which he also contradicts himself by saying in an interview that “Common sense doesn’t allow you to get something from nothing… something pretty mysterious has to get rise to the origin of the universe.” The audience burst into laughter with how Dawkins contradicted himself.

Scientists Lawrence Krauss disregard basic theology and the Bible because it was written mostly by peasants and unlearned people. But this is precisely what makes the Bible unique. God continues to use ordinary people and foolish things of the world to shame those who think they are wiser than Him (1 Corinthians 1:27). We are called by God to have a child-like faith. (Matthew 18:3)

The chicken or the egg?
Ray Comfort asked also which came first, the egg or the hen? If the egg was first, was it fertilized? He also gave an illustration of the complexities of the heart, which came first? The heart itself or the blood? Bill Gates referred to DNA like “a computer software program, but far advanced than any software created.” DNA cannot just happen, there has to be a creator and designer.

So why do you remain an Atheist?
Although it was established that there was an intelligent design, most of the students could not give up atheism. Ray points a simple reason: At video 29:20 minutes, Ray tells it plainly that atheists would continue to pretend that God is not real because they love pornography, sex, and other pleasures that are considered as sin and opposed to God’s morals.
“You deny God’s existence so you can continue to pretend sin is OK but in reality, it has a demonic nature. Ray puts it bluntly, to which most of them did agree and realized why they were atheists, to begin with.
Darkness and “The Light”
The light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than the light because their deeds were evil” (John 3:19). Those who will choose to believe in God will have to submit themselves to His moral authority – and that is something not many can submit to. Jesus is the light, and many will refuse the light because their evil deeds will be exposed. (John 8:12; John 6:51)
