Why Atheism is Irrational: The Fatal Weakness in Atheists' Armor

Date recorded: 20 May 2018 | Speaker: Charles White | Event: ELF Workshop

Description

Is it possible to trust in reason and rational thought if there is no God? Although many atheists call themselves “Brights” and claim to bask in the light of reason, their materialistic worldview provides them no foundation to ground their claim to think rationally. Surprisingly for them, a reliance on reason points not to atheism, but to the existence of a God who is the source of logical thought. Beginning with thinkers from the second century before Christ and continuing up to the current time, this talk demonstrates that atheists have in reality no reason to trust reason. Then, turning to the work of theists, it shows how those who trust in reason have good reason to believe in God.
