Atheists mock people that believe in a God that can’t be readily seen or explained....but firmly believe in other peoples ideas that can’t be seen or readily explained.
Yep. Atheism is a religion. I love Ravi Zacharias’ explanation of atheism:
“How can you affirm a negative in the absolute?”
It would be like me saying to you, “there is no such thing as a white stone with black dots anywhere in all of the galaxies of this universe.” The only way I can affirm that is if I had unlimited knowledge of this universe!
So to affirm an absolute negative is self-defeating because what you are saying is, “I have infinite knowledge in order to say to you there is nobody with infinite knowledge.” Atheism as a system is self-defeating.
