The Folly of Atheism


     A fundamental and egregious intellectual flaw of atheism is that unless an atheist is omniscient (all-knowing), he cannot legitimately say, “I know that there is no God.”  Only an omniscient being would have the necessary and adequate body of knowledge to know whether God exists.  Any being who is less than omniscient is not qualified to state “I know that there is no God” because the distinct possibility exists that in the body of his ignorance is the existence of God.  This is the reason why “the fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God’” (Psalm 53:1).

     In contrast to the fool, “God looks down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there are any who understand, who seek God” (Psalm 53:2).  There is, in fact, one omniscient Being—God.  There is nothing covered or hidden from Him.  He is ignorant of nothing.  The lone omniscient Being in our universe says that there is a God and that He is a rewarder of all those who diligently seek Him.

     So, who do you believe:  The fool who is not omniscient who asserts that there is no God, or the God who is omniscient who declares that there is?
