How Atheists Reveal Their Belief in God

The Bible claims that all people know God exists, and not only that, but it says the existence of God is obvious and that His eternal power and divine nature are clearly seen.

But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. (Romans 1:18-20)

Here's the funny thing. Atheists themselves reveal this truth every day by their actions.

Attacking God

One most common ways atheists reveal their belief in God is by attacking Him. God's character is under nonstop attack by so-called atheists.

In Richard Dawkins,The God Delusion, he says:

“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”

Wow! What a statement about someone you say does not even exist! If I were having a debate with a Muslim, it would never cross my mind to say, "Yea, well your god Allah is just a big bully according to the Koran!" An argument like this is ludicrous. I don't believe Allah exists, and I believe the Koran was fabricated by men. Why would I use a book I don't even believe is true - the Koran - to attack the character of a god that I don't even believe is there? I don't. Nobody does. Yet, atheists do this every day. One moment the atheist will claim the Bible is fiction, then, the next moment he will quote it as an authority to attack the character of a God he says is not even there.

This wild contradiction makes perfect sense though, when you realize that God has already given the 'atheist' enough evidence of Himself. The 'atheist' wishes he did not believe in God, yet "it is obvious to him".

Atheists and Aliens

Another way 'atheists' reveal their belief in God is regarding " aliens". In Richard Dawkin's The God Delusion (page 98) he says this:

“Whether we ever get to know them or not, there are very probably alien civilizations that are superhuman, to the point of being god-like in ways that exceed anything a theologian could possibly imagine. Their technical achievements would seem as supernatural to us as ours would seem to a Dark Age peasant transported to the twenty-first century."

Now let's ask a question: Does Dawkins have any proof for these aliens?

No.

Does he have any evidence of them?

No.

It is nothing but pure blind faith. So here is Richard Dawkins, a man who writes a book scorning the idea of God, mocking those who believe in God, calling them deluded and gullible, yet he himself holds to a total blind faith in "god-like" beings he has absolutely no evidence for!

It is not just Dawkins who believes in super-intelligent aliens. Many atheist, in fact, I would say most atheists believe in aliens. When I first started writing for Hubpages, I asked in the Q&A if people believed in aliens and nearly everyone who said yes had published Hubs about why they did not believe in God. I was recently debating an "anti-theist" as he called himself, who, when I mentioned I did not believe in aliens, told me that I could not be certain aliens did not exist.

Later on, I thought, "Wow, here is a guy who spends hours and hours trolling the internet telling people why their belief in God is irrational, yet he rushed to defend blind belief in aliens!"

Why would you mock someone who "believes in a big daddy in the sky", when you yourself believe in bug-eyed creatures that live deep in space somewhere? Why laugh at people who believe in Intelligent Design when you yourself believe in extraterrestrial intelligence somewhere beyond the stars?

This insane contradiction makes perfect sense, however, when we realize that atheists are not people who don't believe in God, they are people who are anti-God. They don't want to submit to God so they "suppress the truth in unrighteousness".

The atheist Reason Rally in D.C, Richard Dawkins speaking. A man so certain God does not exist, he goes on speaking tours to talk about it.

Atheist Activists

Atheists also reveal their belief in God by being so active in their non-belief.

Atheists launch atheist clubs. Who does that? Who starts a club around a non-belief? I don't believe in aliens, but you would think I was crazy if I started an anti-alien club.

What about atheists going on speaking tours? Do you think many people would pay attention if I toured the United States giving speeches about the nonexistence of aliens?

What about atheist rallies? What other group of people in the world rally around a their non-belief? Why would anyone do this? I'm surrounded by people who believe in aliens, but imagine me trying to get up an anti-alien rally? Trying to start any rally around one of my non-beliefs does not even cross my mind. I don't even think about aliens. They have nothing to do with my life. If 'atheists' really did not believe in God, they would have the same attitude, but they don't have this attitude and, in fact, go to incredible lengths to express and spread this non-belief.

Atheist says he does not want God telling him what to do.

It All Makes Sense

Many things start to make sense when you realize we all know God exists. It makes sense why people would join atheist clubs and host rallies. It makes sense why someone would spend hours and hours on internet chat rooms talking about the non-existence of God. It makes sense why so many Hubs are published talking about non-belief. These are not people who don't believe in God, they are people who reject Him. They don't have the courage to come out and say they reject God, so they deny He exists. It's a passive aggressive way of fighting against Him. They don't want to submit to Him. They don't want Him telling them what to do. This is what an "atheist" really is.

Am I arrogant for saying this?

You Are So Arrogant!

One of the funniest response I've received from the article are atheists telling me how arrogant I am for stating that they really do believe in God. "Think about how offensive that is!" "How arrogant!" "How can you say you know what people believe?? Are you a mind reader?!"

How funny. Atheists can say things like: "Belief in God is irrational." "Those who believe in a deity are gullible." "God is just something people make up in their minds." etc.

Yet, when a Christian says that atheists are dishonest about their position, that is something that should not be said! How arrogant I am for suggesting that! How dare I be so offensive! How dare I claim to be a mind reader and know what people believe!

No, I am not a mind reader, nor did I claim to be, but I can look at the evidence - how people act and what they say - and rightly make this claim. Am I arrogant? No, I am telling the truth. Is it offensive? To the atheist, yes. The truth is always offensive to those who cling to a lie. Am I wrong? I don't think so. Not only do I have the authority of God's Word, but the evidence affirms my claim.

In the end, it is not me who is arrogant for arguing against the atheist position, it is the atheist who is arrogant for thinking he can rail against us theists with no pushback.
