1.6% of the North American population says that 1.6% is too low an estimate of their numbers. Because research results show that’s almost exactly the number of people who adhere to their illogical, absurd and incoherent belief system (1.6% plus Hugo in Canada), atheists try to inflate their numbers by including agnostics and those who don’t go to Church as being of the same mind-set. One atheist even tried to run the number up to 15% of the population by saying all these people belong to the same group.
Ask an atheist if he is an agnostic (that God might exist) and he will of course say no.
Ask an agnostic if he is an atheist (knows that God doesn't exists) and he will of course say no.
Saying, “God might exist. I don’t know,” does not make someone an atheist.
Not attending Church does not make someone an atheist.
Yet, atheists try to lump them all into the same group for number’s sake.
Most people would never agree that:
Some things (eg. the first universe) can begin to exist without a cause
There can be an infinite regress of cause (Material infinite cannot exist)
Matter has existed for ever (2nd Law of Thermodynamics refutes this)
Everything (space, time, matter and energy) came from nothing by nothing.
Even though the less evidence you have for your position the more faith you have to have to believe it, atheists have staked their eternity on the above premesis.
"It can be said with absolute confidence that no cosmogonic model has been:
. As repeatedly verified in its predictions, As corroborated by attempts at its falsification,
. As concordant with empirical discoveries, and
. As philosophically coherent as the Standard Big Bang Creation Event Model."
Yet, because of the metaphysical implications of a universe that came from literally nothing, this 1.6% of the population is forced to reject the findings of science.
Talk about irony!
Atheists ask questions like, “When did an eternal being begin to exist?” or “What caused an eternal being to begin to exist?” and think it makes them sound clever.
These are just a few of the things that make people shy away from even considering atheism. This 1.6% of the population have to pad the numbers because to accept that the vast majority of people see their world view as pathetic and stupid may cause them to reconsider.
