Against atheism, in one simple sentence…

Atheists claim a lot many things. (too many for people who claim to ‘believe nothing’, but that is another story)

But most important of all, is their claim that we – humans – are nothing more than matter obeying the laws of nature.

This alone, is the greatest flaw in their arguments.

For if we are only matter, why should we care about anything?

If we are just random sets of particles, why care about philosophy, truth, justice, ethos, compassion? Why care about whether we are humane or evil? Why care if we are honest or dishonest?

At the end, it all comes down to the things we believe concerning our very existence. What is life, what is death, what is Being per se. And the answer we give to the simplest questions in life, determine our stance in everything.

So the next time an atheist tries to spell out his “We are just matter” mantra, simply ask him…

In a world made of matter, what does anything matter?

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
