Atheism is the most illogical of all beliefs
I keep hearing all over that atheism is the most logical, the most scientific. So I wanted to first try and show that it is not, and then give the atheists a chance to respond.
My first point is this. You use the fact that all other beliefs are believed in with little to no evidence, and therefore they are foolish beliefs. However, the very definition of atheism, is the belief that NO GOD exists. Not that you are unsure, but that you BELIEVE there is no God, when it CANNOT be proven, EVER that there is no God. You are putting as much or more faith into this, than the christians.
Second, you all try and find little discrepancies in the bible, and yell and holler when you find "492" here, and "491.999" there. This is not significant enough to denounce a faith, when you have over 1000 pages to work with, you should be able to find something more major, were the religion false. You then go on to say that such errors are proof of christianities ignorance, even though I have NEVER seen ANYTHING that has not been explained away by christians.
Third, after the above has been done, you go on to claim that christians base all their beliefs on this dumb book, even though you have not proved it wrong, simply proved that it is a long shot. Perhaps what you are missing is the fact that they have a book, and you don't even have a pamplet. There is no proof for you here.
Fourth, you use the line "a christian once told me" FAR too often. You CANNOT use the far fetched ideas of one man to disprove an entire religious system. I have heard atheists who believe in different types of evolution, or in aliens. Disproving any one of those does NOT disprove the "religion", or discredit the others who believe in it. It does nothing what-so-ever to prove atheism, or disprove theism.
Fifth, I have NEVER seen a SINGLE shred of evidence for ANY form of atheism. Be it evolution or aliens or anything else. The only things I have EVER seen are far fethced claims by heavily biased scientists, who show no evidence for their claims. They simply laugh at the idea of God, and so they look at the only other alternatives they can find. I have asked MANY hardcore atheists over and over to show me ANY evidence, and I have yet to see anything beyond that example with the moths, which was(as far as I have seen) poorly documented at best. You have to be able to do better than that to be the "smarter" choice.
Sixth, you NEVER try and prove atheism, you only attempt to disprove other religions. Well? Have you disproved every single one? Because, if disproving God is the only way to be sure of atheism, then, to be the logical choice, you would have to FULLY disprove EVERY religion on earth, or at least prove that the idea of God is impossible. I have yet to see any major religion crushed, and so can only conclude that you have failed in this, your only means of proving your precious atheism.
So what is left for your "evidence"? What is it that makes you the more "logical" more "learned" more "moved on" belief? Why is atheism the best religion out there? And yes, it IS a religion, because it takes more faith or ignorance to believe in no God at all, than ANY other religion I have seen to date.
