Monday¬†night at UNC Wilmington, despite no cooperation from the school (see my last post), just over 200 people showed up for part 1 of I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist.¬†¬†Several¬†atheists asked questions– actually made statements– and struggled¬†greatly when I asked them to¬†offer some objective¬†basis for morality¬†from their atheistic worldview.¬†¬† They kept trying to give tests for how we know something¬†is moral¬†rather than why something is moral.¬† One¬†atheist¬†said “not harming people” is the standard.¬† But why is harming people wrong if there is no God?¬† Another¬†said,¬†“happiness” is the basis for morality.¬† (After I¬†asked him, “Happiness according to who, Mother¬†Teresa or Hitler?,”¬†¬†he¬†said,¬†“I need to think about this more,” and then sat down.)¬† This says nothing about the intelligence of these people– there just is no good answer to the question.¬†¬† Without God there is no basis for objective morals.¬† It’s just Mother Teresa’s opinion against Hitler’s.

The atheists’ responses to the cosmological and design arguments– the¬†arguments that¬†show us that the universe exploded into¬†being out of nothing and did so with amazing design and precision–¬†were “we don’t know how that happened.”¬†¬† This is simply an evasion of the evidence that clearly points to an eternal, immaterial, powerful, intelligent, personal and moral First Cause of the universe.¬†¬† Since nature itself was created, this Cause must be¬†beyond nature or¬†“supernatural.”

We got plenty of encouraging¬†comments from the believers who attended. And there will be¬†a lot more written¬†about this event when popular columnist Mike Adams posts his next column later this week.¬† Just to give you a preview: during the Q&A Mike, who was our host,¬†asked all faculty members to stand up.¬† Only one person other than himself did.¬† Out of 400-500¬†professors at UNC Wilmington– a school¬†where the faculty¬†claims to be¬†champions of “diversity”–¬†only two show up to a¬†talk¬†about the most important subject anyone could discuss (God)?¬†Adams will have a field day with this.¬† Track his columns on Townhall.com¬†here.
