CAN A GENUINE ATHEIST BE CONVINCED THAT GOD EXISTS AGAINST THEIR WILL? The Answer Would Have To Be A Simple No. Firstly because no person can convince another person of anything against his or her will; secondly, no genuine atheist believes God exists.

An atheist, who truly believes that there is no Creator, has already made up his or her mind that God does not exist. Although, most atheists, I have encountered, are people who reject man-made religion and, in doing so, claim that they are atheists.

For any person to say that God does not exist, if the person is truly serious, that person has to deny the fact that being born to die is futile. The person has to deny that eternity cannot exist. The person has to deny that intelligence exists.

A person who denies that the concepts of futility, eternity and intelligence have meaningful significance will not be convinced about the truth of the Universe being created by an Omniscient Mind that possesses infinity. Such persons think that they are omniscient—but you know the truth. If these people did not think they were omniscient, they would be humble and acknowledge that they are mortal beings who have feelings that they cannot see, and they are affected by the thoughts of other people that are directed towards them. Especially when they are detrimental, voiced either by word of mouth or in writing. For instance, they usually hate being called fools. Yet this is what the Bible states:
  • The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” (Psalm 14:1)
The atheists whom I have spoken with, after extended conversation, usually admit that they have to agree that a Creator exists, but they do not accept that He is knowable by them. In other words, they really do not want to acknowledge that they are vulnerable individuals who need to ask for forgiveness for anything they have done wrong.

Morality And What It Means For The Health Of Intelligent Beings Is Overlooked
