Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Atheists' Ironic Preoccupation

"Did you see the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life released the results of a survey showing that Atheists an Agnostics know more on religion than...Well the religious. especially the Christians? Just curious to your take on this since you have dealt with our kind for awhile." Caveman73

The survey showed that atheists are more preoccupied with God than the average uncommitted church-goer. For them, it's not a one-hour once-a-week thing. It's 24/7. Atheists think, write, talk, and text about God. They put up billboards, make DVD's, and write books about God. They religiously gather together and confirm each other's beliefs about how God doesn’t exist.

It's a kind of infatuation that could even be termed "religious zeal" by psychology. This preoccupation with what they believe is non-existent, exists because atheists have nothing to do. They have no purpose in existence, and this gives them one. If God didn't exist, neither would they.

They hang around Christians like little bugs around a warm camp-fire. I have been bugged by atheists for years, but have developed an immunity to their jabs of poison. I've become as thick-skinned as a not-quite-ripe banana.

To be honest, I enjoy their presence. In more than three years of blogging, I have only had to swat two of them. Come to think about it, I don't think that I've ever met an atheist I didn’t like.
