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.

Unreasonable Men...

A theist says to a professing atheist: "Still waiting for you to provide one factual example of non-life creating life to support your ridiculously unscientific beliefs. If you utterly fail to do so, I have no reason to believe your position has any credibility whatsoever, since factual science says 'all life comes from life'" without exception.

You will be waiting for a long time, because the "new" atheist has the ultimate cop-out cut-and-paste. He’s ready for people like you. He doesn’t know how life came out of non-life, and he doesn’t have to know because "the beginning" doesn’t concern him. It just happened, and one day science will have the answer.

In the meanwhile, he places himself in the lofty position of not having to justify his lack of intellectual stance because he’s not the one making a claim. You are. You say that God exists, so he believes that you are the one who has to provide evidential proof. And he says that he sees no evidence the God exists. That’s the new and convenient definition of an atheist--someone who sees no belief that a god exists.

Then, like a dim-witted blind and deaf judge, he dismisses evidence put before him (such as that which has been made being axiomatic evidence for a Maker) as being laughingly non-admissible. Case dismissed. Then he, in a bizarre self-conceit, proclaims himself wise.

Such is the intellectual embarrassment of the "new" atheism. However, their brainless position isn’t new at all. The Scriptures had them pegged 2,000 years ago:

"For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools . . . " Romans 1:20-22 (NKJV)

The Bible also speaks of "unreasonable" men. Such can’t be reasoned with, even with such simple common sense. What's more, in a further effort to fortify themselves against the truth, they twist the Bible to mean things it doesn’t say, and the tragedy is, what they do will result in their own terrible and eternal downfall:

"There are some things in those [epistles of Paul] that are difficult to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist and misconstrue to their own utter destruction, just as [they distort and misinterpret] the rest of the Scriptures" (2 Peter 3:16, Amplified Bible).
