The Religion of Atheism

The article referred to here was from a couple of weeks ago, and I cannot source it, but I figure I might as well try to finish the post.

I don't know if it is a first, but a recent column on the religion page of the Edmonton Journal was written by an atheist, from an explicitly atheistic perspective. And it exposed the typical internal inconsistency and non-sequitur fallacies of the atheist's position.

The author claims to be an atheist but in reality he sounds more like a pantheist, ascribing divinity to the earth and ecosystem itself. So rather than acknowledge a Supreme Creator, who brought all we see around us out of nothing and has commanded us to take care of it, he and his ilk seem more to think that the universe created itself, and that it somehow holds us as humans to some kind of accountability. This ascribes a sort of personality to the ecosphere and all things within it, living or not. Which makes as much or as little sense as the theistic position with which atheists so vehemently disagree.

It seems to me.

Take Care.
