Why Athiests Belive in God

by Caleb Kautt

Atheism in America is at an all time high. In school everyday your children are being taught (if they go to government schools) that there is no God. There are actually what I call, “Professional Atheists!” Take Richard Dawkins, for example. This man makes his living teaching people that there is no God, among other things. The Bible says in Romans 1:18, 20 – 22,  

For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold [or suppress] the truth in unrighteousness; for the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God…Professing themselves to
be wise they became fools…” [Emphasis added] 


Richard Dawkins 

Mr. Dawkins said, “We have seen that living things are too improbable and too beautifully ‘designed’ to have come into existence by chance.”1 In other words, Mr. Dawkins recognizes that things could not develop by chance, that they had to be created. But why does he still refuse to believe in God? He believes in God, but doesn’t want to admit it. Because the moment he acknowledges that there is a Supreme Authority, Dawkins must submit himself to Him.  

When men, who don’t know everything there is to know about everything there is to know, say “there is no God because we can’t see Him,” what they are basically saying is, “I would have to know everything there is to know about everything there is to know, to know that there is no God; but then I would be God!”  

Hopefully now you are seeing that the real problem is a war of the worldviews. Take this quote from John Dunphy, for example, and you will see what I mean: 

I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity… These teachers… will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless of the education level – preschool, day care or large state university. The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new– the rotting corpse of Christianity, and the new faith of humanism.”2  

Yes, atheists believe in God (James 2:19). But, the question is not if one believes, but if that person is ready to submit to God’s Word and His laws. 
