Atheism
IMO atheism is a joke, it's a belief system based on total disregard towards reality and logic.

Atheism is not a belief system; it a non-belief system.

Atheists find insufficient evidence to believe in the various tribal idols and demons, whether they be yours or anyone else's.


Religious belief does not constitute scientific evidence, nor does it convey scientific knowledge.

Re: Atheism
You can trump this belief system quite easily in multiple ways - an atheist can't even explain why 2+2 equals 4. Why did 2+2 equal 4 ten billion years ago? Why does it now and why will it 2 billion years from now? Why is it so all encompassing as to be valid here on Earth and valid on Alpha Centauri? What makes this possible?

Why doesn't 2+2 equal 5 from time to time? Because there would be no universe and no life, the universe is based on order and laws that can be described mathematically. Where did this law that prohibts 2+2 to equal 5 come from?

Ask an atheist. They live in a dream land, maybe they'll come up with a fancy answer.

"2+2=4" this is the universe that obeys the laws of the creator.

Nonsense.

Re: Atheism
It hurts your feelings but the universe's existence is based on laws and rules and they can be described logically(there is inherent intellect that we can understand).

    A Man Said to the Universe

    A man said to the universe:
    "Sir, I exist!"
    "However," replied the universe,
    "The fact has not created in me
    A sense of obligation."

    Stephen Crane (1871-1900)
