The dire consequences of atheism


Rarely do I run into an atheist who willingly admits that their worldview lacks rhyme, reason, or justice.

Richard Dawkins however, sums atheism up perfectly.

“In a universe of blind physical forces and genetic replication, some people are going to get hurt, other people are going to get lucky, and you won’t find any rhyme or reason in it, or any justice.

The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference… DNA neither knows nor cares.

DNA just is.

And we dance to its music.”

Richard Dawkins, River Out of Eden: A Darwinian View of Life (1995)

  1. Is there even a point to this post? Dawkins is at least aware of what’s happening.


  2. That’s right. We make meaning.


  3. I have no issue with that quote. In fact i entirely agree. I’m sure most atheists would.

  4. You’re equivocating. There is no *ultimate* meaning. The universe doesn’t care about us. Chemistry doesn’t care about us. There is no *purpose* in this sense. I think the vast majority of atheists would agree with this and readily admit it.

    We, however, create meaning, purpose, and justice in our own lives and in our societies. When atheists contend that our lives are not without these things, we aren’t talking about them in the *ultimate* sense of magic and the supernatural. Quite simply, everything in this world is enough.


    • ‘This world’ is a mess and under the bonds of it’s god, who is Satan, and who has blinded the minds of unbelievers. 2 Cor 4:4 Since the unbeliever cannot see the Lght of the Gospel of the Glory of Christ, this world is in fact all the unbeliever has, at least until he/she faces the Judgment, at which time he/she will bow before the Christ denied in ‘this’ world before spending an eternity in the torments of Hell. Phil 2:10-11, Rom 14:11, Isa 45:23


      • Where is the logical, pragmatic justification for torturing someone in Hell?


        • There doesn’t need to be human justification for what God chooses to do, or not do. God is God and we all know that He IS. There are two kinds of people; those who have embraced, through Christ, that truth and those who who repress it. Those who repress what they know to be true have a hard road to travel, here and in eternity.
