Atheism From Scripture » Answering Atheists
This page was deliberately created to answer the quotes of some of the most famous people claiming to be atheists. Psalms 14:1 declares what God says about atheism. I agree with God. It's folly beyond all reason to stand against the Creator who will preside over the final judgment.
Edward Gibbon - "Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful." -- Here is the foolhardy argument of an arrogant man who undoubtedly believes himself to be wise.
The common people are far wiser than he is because the wisdom of Mr. Gibbon is foolishness with God and those who exalt themselves God will bring down. I am sure that Mr. Gibbon is in a place that he would gladly be free from and longs to hear the word repent again. Study Isaiah 55:8 - 9
George Bernard Shaw - "The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one." -- This quote shows the author of it to be lacking in rational thinking.
The drunkard is not truly happy because he needs his alcoholic habit to soften the blows that real life brings. The happiness, if you can call it that, of a drunkard is superficial and temporary.
The believer has an eternal happiness that doesn't evaporate with the next trial because believers are secure in the knowledge that whatever comes they are eternally alive in Christ and all things work together for good to those that love God. Romans 8:28 Believers are happy to know that God strengthens them in all adversity up to and including martyrdom. The happiness in the true believer is deep within, not superficial.
