A Christian’s asks: Is Atheism Illogical and Contradictory?

Atheists define their worldview as:

○ not believing in a god or gods in any form (no deities allowed)

○ believing there is no evidence for gods and no reason to believe in any

Atheists contrast themselves with Christians, by citing abortion doctors murdered by Christians because this breaks the Biblical commandment “Do not kill.” They neglect to consider the millions of children aborted by those same doctors. This plea is reminiscent of the Nazi war criminals’ plea in Nuremberg in 1946, which claimed they “broke no law of Germany” because the laws had dehumanized those they murdered. The International Court, which tried these Nazi war criminals, saw through this and indicted them for crimes against humanity. The court said, “There is a higher law than the ones passed by governments.” Morality has absolute standards! The source of this judgment is the sixth commandment, which states, “Thou shalt not kill.”

This existence of moral absolutes is a significant contrast between Atheism and Christianity. On morality, Atheists say: “Atheism does not lead inevitably to any particular moral position.” “What’s right in one circumstance is wrong in another.” “Abortion is desirable in some circumstances.” and “The taking of a human life can be justified if it serves a useful purpose.” This relative position on morality is a hallmark of Atheism. That same Atheist, then, declares unequivocally, ” There is no God.” That’s an absolute statement that claims omniscience or infinite knowledge. So here’s the Atheist’s problem: morals are relative, but their essential declaration of “no God” is absolute. This relativism vs. absolute conflict is a contradiction of the highest order. You can’t have it both ways! As Mr. Spock would say, “That’s illogical!” Or Data, the android in Star Trek, would say, “That doesn’t compute!” Atheism is a direct logical contradiction and defies all logic. The Atheist makes the explicit claim of personal omniscience to KNOW, “there is no God.”

My conversation with an Atheist.

Charlie: “Are there moral absolutes in the Universe like the Ten Commandments?”

Atheist: “Of course not. All moral judgments are dependent on society’s conditions.”

Charlie: “Is there a God?”

Atheist: “No! I say that with certainty, absolutely not!”

Charlie: “So when it comes to morality, there are no absolutes, but you make the absolute statement ‘There is no God.’ You can’t have it both ways: absolute and relative. Atheism is a contradiction in the highest order. If you are going to be consistent with your logic, the best an Atheist can be is Agnostic! Atheism itself is a logical contradiction!”

Here are some questions I ask atheists to provoke them to think about their worldview.

  • If there is no God, then why does it matter to you if anyone believes in Jesus?
  • Why does my belief in Jesus distress you so much?
  • Don’t I have freedom to believe what I want to?
  • Why does it make you so angry I believe in God?
  • If God doesn’t exist, why does it matter?
  • If there is no God what’s your point?

This analysis of Atheism is from my book “Always Be Ready to Give an Answer!” My second book: ANSWERS For “The Hope That Is In You.” contains answers to 106 questions unbelievers use to try to stump Christians.

My third book, “Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s DEAD!” is currently in the final editing process and will be published later this year. http://yourchristiananswers.com

  1. To answer the majority of your questions in one swoop, it concerns to me personally that you believe in God because of the lack of evidence. Theists are easily pleased when it comes to evidence, and overly satisfied with the world we live in. I do not know you enough to make an assumption about you personally, but the willingness to continue believing despite the violence our history has seen makes me wonder if we will ever rise above it.

    1. I agree we will never rise above our violent world. It is the nature of mankind because of sin that came from our first parents. Only the return of Jesus will stop the destruction and bring peace. Those that believe will be justified and those that don’t will be cast out of God’s presence forever in Hell.
