First off let me acknowledge the honesty of you’re post name. Aren’t are “Atheist Evil? ** Oh, I’m sorry it‘s “all Christians that are evil!” **
You actually make some valid points. Dishonesty is a sin, and possibly, depending on the seriousness of the act and the intent to defraud, could even be a serious sin. It also shows a weak mind and weaker morals if done intentionally. One should be quick to judge actions. And far less quick in judging motives.
Actually, Christians understand that that our Creator is all “everything good-perfectly!”
Support for this argument can be made in at least to ways.
If Creation is a “First Cause” reality, and it is, then the Creator had to have (being good and being perfect) specific reasons for everything that He the Creator brought into existence from “nothing.” To not have a specific reason for creation would mean that God is somehow imperfect. The Created Universe and it’s continuing existence gives evidence that this is not the case.
The most common elements of “still-life” one assumes might be grass and trees. Both of these contribute to creating Oxygen need to sustain human and animal life. If it “was not designed” how did it come into existence, and what keeps it in existence?
One might point to the stars, even the sun and the moon, which all seem to be inanimate objects. Yet each of these serves a purpose, be it navigation, light, the tide, plant and crop growth, to name a few. So I’m not exactly sure of what you mean by “inanimate objects?” Water is needed by plant and animal life for existence.
Indeed, there was no physical exertion on God’s part, God simply (for Him) Willed into being the Universe, and the Order (laws of) of the Universe such as the sun and moon rising and setting regularly, the stars staying in place, the law of Gravity and the like. These certainly cannot be credited to mere accident, or some kind of evolution, and clearly point to a “Supreme Being” that we call God.
[quote] Another atheist argument that I think is logically flawed is the statement that because evolution can explain why people have religious beliefs, those religious beliefs must be false. If God exists, he could simply have made us this way in order to make it easier to realize that he exists. So it shows why people might believe in God even if he doesn’t exist, but it does not show that God is merely imaginary.
My friend how does evolution explain why people have religious beliefs? I have heard the exact opposite. That evolution gives evidence that there is no God. Which is absurd. Where did the stuff that “went bang” originate?
Another common argument is that religious people have done very bad things in the past. This does not show that their religion is false, just that members of any religion are humans, and have flaws. Both atheists and Christians have been brutal murderers and both atheists and Christians have been generous humanitarians.
