Why Are You an Atheist?

Friday, Aug 9, 2013 - 6pm ET

Is it true that one can know that God exists through reason alone? If yes...than what arguments are there that are solid? I have looked at 24 different arguments that I can find an atheist worldview answer to...So what would be an argument that an atheist couldn’t answer?

Religion in my eyes is purely faith based, and there is no way to prove there is a God or not. Religion is a way to help people deal with life and force them to be a good person. All religions really do the same thing...

If the universe is expanding and cooling and reaching further to a state of non existence, is this something a Catholic can believe in? What is the relationship between the Church and science?

Answering Atheism
Today’s popular champions of atheism are often called New Atheists, because they don’t just deny God’s existence (as the old atheists did)—they consider it their duty to scorn and ridicule religious belief. But there’s nothing really “new” about their arguments. They’re the same basic objections to theism that mankind has wrestled with for centuries. We don’t need new answers for this aggressive modern strain of unbelief: We need a new approach. In Answering Atheism, Trent Horn responds to that need with a fresh and useful resource for the God debate, combining a thorough refutation of atheist claims with a skillfully constructed case for theism based on reason and common sense. Just as important, he advocates a charitable approach that respects atheists’ sincerity and good will—making this book suitable not just for believers but for skeptics and seekers too.
