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.

In this Youtube feature movie, Ray exposes the fallacies of high profile atheists like Richard Dawkins. He is arguably the modern 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.

Bible skeptics turned Christians

The skeptics

Scientists like Lawrence Krauss disregard basic theology and the Bible because it was written mostly by peasants and unlearned people. But this is precisly what makes the Bible special, God uses ordinary people, even foolish things of the world to shame the wise and choose weak things of the world to shame the strong (1 Corinthians 1:27) because those who see themselves as wise, already think they know everything. Ironically, we are called by God to have a child-like faith. (Matthew 18:3)

Irreducible complexity
It is a term coined by Michael Behe, who defines it as a single system which is composed of several interacting parts, and where the removal of any one of the parts causes the system to cease functioning.

The solar system
One example of irreducible complexity is our tiny solar system (compared to the vastness of the universe). If the sun was an inch closer to earth, life on earth would not survive long. Likewise, if it was an inch away, the same thing will happen, it’s basic science yet filled with complexities. Likewise, if the earth spun faster, we will all be dead. (Popular Science)

The complexity of DNA
DNA is the most complicated structure in our body, there has to be a designer because its complexity cannot be reduced to function in the same. However, for Lawrence Krauss, a respected physicist, to him, it just looks designed, or maybe he just doesn’t want to submit to God.

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?

Ray was able to establish that there was an intelligent design but most of the students could not give up being an atheist. Ray points a very 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 Bible tells us that “This, then, is the judgment: 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)

God’s wonderful plan

The book of Jeremiah 29:11 says “God has wonderful plans for you.” This world is full of sin, sickness, death, and sadness. It is ruled by Satan which is why judgment is coming (2 Corinthians 4:4). All things will be new and those that belong to Jesus will be saved.

Jesus said, “I have come that you may have life, and have it the fullest” (John 10:10). Jesus is knocking on the door of your heart. Talk to Him!
