It has always been the aim of secularists to elect an atheist into the office of the President of the United States. Never have they been closer to achieving this goal, and never have the stakes been higher. With November only 2 months away, atheists are putting all their effort into supporting the campaign for possibly the first atheist president—Donald Trump.
Why does science work? Ask that to an atheist, and they will say it just does. Duh. Of course it does. It makes perfect sense. It is self correcting, peer reviewed, and when experiments produce consistent results this implies something factual about the world. To an atheist, if science can’t explain it then it doesn’t exist. To this claim, I say “prove it.”
If not for my angsty teenage years, I would not have challenged theism enough to discover how deep it goes. Faith is not blindly following a belief, it is giving yourself to the darkness. That we are in the dark is our innate, human condition. Faith is not complacency in a dark world, but a choice to act in darkness without worry or fear.
