Atheist Paradox

The Atheist Paradox is the logical impossibility of proving that a greater being does not exist.

It is similar to the logical impossibility of proving that mathematics is free of errors. Godel proved that we can never know if mathematics is consistent, or error-free.

A greater being could reveal himself to some but not others. The most an atheist could ever say is that he has not yet become aware of a greater being. That begs the question of whether the atheist is still looking, or has given up.

Many atheists are in fact anti-Christians who find it more advantageous to preach as an atheist than as anti-Christian. Those who censor prayers by children, as in classrooms, are engaging in anti-Christian activities. An atheist would be unconcerned with loving prayers that he simply did not believe in.

Two Types of Atheists

There are two types of atheists: those who aggressively censor religion in various forms, and those who allow, and even encourage, religious activity by others.

The first type of atheist—the censor—can only be understood as an anti-Christian.

The second type of atheist—the tolerant—can only be understood as one who has "given up" spiritually and refuses to look further for a superior being.
