Atheists I believe are made up of or consist of several parts or elements. Although a lack of certain elements is a predominant factor to their lives, other human-like elements own to their inner person do indeed exist. Human-like traits like emotions for instance could prevail at the bedside of loved ones wrestling in the clutches of death. This is here where tears are shed and where a deeply rooted acute awareness of a deity could even present itself, particularly if death is threatening a child’s demise. However, according to your faith, or lack thereof, let it be to you.
Elements I believe having gone awry in an atheistic mind is those associated with the frontal lobe of the brain. These associations include individual functioning patterns such as planning, parts of speech, movement, emotions, problem solving and reasoning. Now, while the first five functions above might function to its fullest capacity, the function of logical reasoning in gyration to conviction, most notably religion, seems to have gone totally askew.
Let me explain: Any reasonable mind would for instance consider the creativity identifiable with the human eye. The ingenuity behind the design of the eye is in fact one of such skill and inventiveness that it brought about an incisive acknowledgement from Charles Darwin to concede that “to suppose that the eye, with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest possible degree.”, yet the atheist mind-set chooses to cherry pick a design that suits its personal viewpoint.
Second to this is the human ear. In a book edited by David Lipscomb, Hearing Conservation in Industry, Schools, and the Military, he states on page 303 that ‘The ear is capable of sensory response to sound whose pressure at the ear drum is no greater than two ten-thousands of a millionth of barometric pressure. This pressure moves the ear drum about one one-hundred-millionth of an inch. That dimension is approximately one one-hundredth the width of a hydrogen molecule, the tiniest of all known molecules. Therefore, throughout a significant portion of the ear’s dynamic range, it is moving in sub-molecular dimensions.’, yet the atheist mind-set chooses to cherry pick a design that suits its personal viewpoint.
Whatever the case may be: ascribing any of these ingenuities to an explosion the blasted through the universe some millennia ago seems reason enough to believe that a misaligned sense of the uniqueness of a planet we call home has gone totally haywire somewhere in the midst of an apparent explosion and that which cascades upon our eyes today.
What transpired in the life of an atheist to have them renounce the complexities involved in the building blocks of an intricate society? I think nothing transpired: nothing at all but an inclination which endorsed itself into a phenomenon known as stubbornness and snide. A snide-like stubbornness that can eventually corrupt if nurtured long enough in an apathetic state of non-believe towards a wondrous world screaming intelligent design – a design worth pondering into instead of scurrying along paths towards an apparent bang that whisked all into existence begetting some from a vacuum so intense it completely besmirched the modern atheist mind to one of confused and humdrum logics to find scientific justifications for just about everything.
In an adage that comes to mind in conclusion to this article I deliberate upon rottenness by means of thought – Rotten thinking produces a rotten mind-set which leads to a rotten expression and an eventual rotten behaviour.
