Conversations with an Atheist

August 30, 2011


It has been said that the atheist has created his own religion, where his God is called “Chance”. That may be well be true, but I have found in discussions with one of my friend (the self-proclaimed spokesman for all Atheists) that when an atheist cannot explain why they believe something, they do what they accuse Christians of doing, and appeal to Blind Faith. No, their appeal is not to a Supreme Being or divinely inspired holy text but in something we call the Scientific Method. For my friend, the Scientific Method has become his personal safety net used to explain everything. It turns out to be extremely efficient and effective for him, as he no longer has to spend the time considering all the evidence.
