Abandoning Reason

by John Henson
To see people abandon reason is amazing, but even more so when atheists, who pride themselves on logical argument, do it because they are tired of listening to the logical proof of God’s existence.
On the blog “Atheist Experience” one writer said he was tired of hearing arguments for God’s existence because those arguments don’t have anything to do with the real world. He wrote,

“But basically the rise of science was based on a recognition of the fact that our model of the universe is always going to be tentative, so we should build up a system that recognizes facts as more or less likely to be true based on their support through observation. There is never, ever, going to be some kind of successful argument purely of the form ‘A is A, therefore Bigfoot exists / doesn’t exist.’ Proving things in the real world requires that you look at things in the real world.”/1

“Facts are more or less likely to be true,” is a fantastic admission. I’ve always believed a fact must always be true, and if it isn’t, then it was never a fact in the beginning. Yet, for those who do not believe in God, it somehow makes sense that their facts are not really facts, and that there will never, ever be a successful argument for the existence of God.
The apostle Peter well spoke of them when he wrote,

“But these, like irrational animals, creatures of instinct, born to be caught and destroyed, blaspheming about matters of which they are ignorant, will also be destroyed in their destruction, suffering wrong as the wage for their wrongdoing” (2 Peter 2:12 ESV).
