Atheism is a religion which became popular following the publication of its bible "Origin of Species" in 1859. Atheism teaches that the Biblical God, an intelligent, eternal, creator, does not exist and that life developed through the unguided, natural process of evolution.
Many recent advancements in science have seriously undermined the atheist faith. How long can they turn a blind eye to reason and evidence and continue to cling to their old, Victorian era myths?
Atheists rejected an eternal God and therefore were forced to assume that the universe has existed eternally. This has recently been proven to be false - the universe in fact was created about 13 billion years ago. If there is no God, where did it come from?
Recent research has demonstrated that the universe is fine tuned to make life possible. If there is no God, who fine tuned it?
If there is no God, how did life appear on earth and appear so suddenly?
If life evolved through small, gradual, trial and error changes, not divine creation, then why do the fossils indicate sudden dramatic changes?
If life developed through genetic mutations and natural selection, how could flatworms develop into humans in only 500 million years, while only one organism in countless trillions is born with a beneficial de novo genetic mutation?
Atheists may try to devise various tortured and complicated arguments to justify their beliefs.
Some have desperately suggested that space aliens have created the universe and created life.
But surely atheists, especially the younger generation who are more open minded and less dogmatic than their traditional parents, will eventually have to throw their hands up in despair and admit "God did it!"
