Unreasonable faithlessness: failing as an atheist

Unreasonable Faith: Failing as a Parent

So much for "love the sinner but hate the sin," eh?

As the father of two young children myself, I cannot even imagine ever writing a letter like that to either of my children.

From an atheistic standpoint, a blind, pitiless, amoral process programmed Jeff to love his offspring. The same evolutionary process programs other animals to eat their offspring.

Jeff keeps forgetting what it means to be an atheist. That’s because he has to live in God’s world. It takes a lot of conscious effort to be a consistent atheist. Constant vigilance. You have to keep reminding yourself of what it means to be an atheist. Keep prompting yourself. Otherwise, you slip into the unconscious default mode of someone God designed.
