Insane in the Membrane: How Atheism Engenders Insanity

Written by Luke Hamilton on May 10, 2013

So when Richard signs the tawdry screeds he calls his books, he is demonstrating that he does not believe his own worldview. If he did, he would sign his books “The Meat-bag of Chemical Interactions Which Masquerade as an Individual Human Agent”. I think I would actually stand in line for a book with that signature.

2434_3f15_960This is the dirty secret of atheism which they do not want you to know, much less enforce while debating worldviews with them. But it is essential that we do just that. We have ceded far too much intellectual battleground which should never have been surrendered. Logical arguments must remain within the constraints of their own self-imposed boundaries. These nouveau Logical Positivists prefer to use their materialism as a club to silence anyone with supernatural beliefs, but they are required to play by the rules of materialism as a result.

I would love to see someone take a hard line with Dawkins. Each time he said something like “I think…” the response should be, “You do what? And who is you?” According to materialism, thoughts are not part of the physical world, nor are they observable with the 5 senses. Therefore, thought does not exist. What we refer to as “thoughts” are likely just by-products of an organic chemical reaction in our body. Much like Hume’s radical skepticism put an end to Western philosophy for nearly a generation (until it was widely dismissed as inoperably onerous), the materialism of modern atheism is a philosophical dead-end. The artists and philosophers who were intellectually honest enough to carry these beliefs to their logical ends usually ended up in their own version of Celebudolt Rehab in a padded cell, ala Nietzsche.

Thankfully for the atheists, along came postmodernism and its relativity and they were no longer subject to the laws of logic. They could (and do) synthesize two logically-divergent concepts and call it “truth”. Logic no longer sits atop the throne, ideology and emotionalism do. But that does not mean we cannot hold their metaphysical feet to the fire when they build their arguments on a foundation of soggy Jenga sticks. Force them to live and interact in adherence to their “beliefs” and we will see just how deep-seated those beliefs are. And best be prepared for them to ask the same of you.
