Why are atheists mentioned in the Bible, the book of one they say doesn't exist?
I'm not quite sure what you're asking here. Many religious texts mention non-believers. It makes sense that a book promoting one religion over another would attempt to address those who disbelieve it. Whether the purpose is to demonize the opposition, or just debate some of the issues non-believers might bring up, it's a legitimate practice. And from the viewpoint of an atheist, the bible mentions them because it was written by humans.
It isn't very profound, that there will be non-believers, It matters not what you advocate there will always be skeptics. I find nothing in the Bible that provokes me to actually believe in God, only living has done that. Through living I know that there is a God, no; I can't prove it and have no desire to, though I know that none can prove that there isn't either.
Thank, M.T.D. Good response...humans vs. humans with no supreme being involved. Logical.
Dmop...provoke is a good choice of words. Thanks for responding.
the "atheists" of the Bible are / were Christians(followers of Jehovah) as well as those who did not follow other 'gods' or believe in them .... thus they were called atheists-
atheism is actually a form of idolatry and that in any form should be avoided at all costs -
Jesus is real and HE paid a very high price for all who will believe in Him...
I'm not an atheist, but last time I checked I don't think anyone has ever thought or believed that The Bible doesn't exist?
It is a book and that is a proven fact.
Atheists don't believe in God, which is what is referenced in The Bible, but most people(including atheists) view The Bible as a historical artifact that has some sense of meaning in the world.

That's the typical Sam Harris argument. How does suffering negate God's existence? Maybe He's just watching. It doesn't mean He doesn't exist and for anyone to bring up suffering as proof of no God is...
