A Holiday For Atheists

“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good” (Psalm 53:1).

There are many religious holidays, and April 1 would be a good holiday for atheists, humanists, pantheists, and others who deny the reality of an omnipotent, personal Creator God. The Word of God has made it plain that such a faith is the faith of a fool (the Hebrew word, nabal, means both “stupid” and “wicked”).

It is obvious that no one could ever prove atheism to be true, for it is impossible to prove a universal negative. In fact, there is such overwhelming evidence of designed order and complexity in the universe, especially in the marvelous structures of living organisms, that one must exercise an enormous amount of credulity to make himself believe that it all just happened! This is the New Testament testimony as well: “. . . they are without excuse: Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:20–23).

Both ancient pagans and modern evolutionists have “changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature (same as ‘creation’) more than the Creator” (Romans 1:25), and this is inexcusable. The anomaly is that they usually boast of such folly as “intellectual” and “scientific,” when it is nothing but “abominable iniquity,” as our text calls it. They insist that their viewpoint is alone suitable for the public schools, claiming that since creationism implies a Creator, it is necessarily religious, and therefore not scientific. But they have rejected God purely and simply because “they did not like to retain God in their knowledge” (Romans 1:28). Their knowledge, no matter how copious and complex, is foolishness, without God. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction” (Proverbs 1:7). HMM
