What is wrong with these pictures?

As our perception may be deceived by a clever picture our thinking may be deceived by a clever argument.

In light of our weekly evangelism, our favorite atheist once again came by with his challenges. With all of his atheistic rhetoric learning he “believes” that his argument are “clever” and therefore has refuted the Christians. How could one be so arrogant that he truly believes his argument to be rational and logical when he doesn’t believe that the laws of logic are not universal? It is interesting to find out (when asked) that he does not even know the basic laws of logic (i.e law of identity, excluded middle, non-contradiction, etc – even inductive and deductive reasoning) and yet appeal to these laws to refute us.

What is ironic is that this atheist would refute the goodness of God but he himself does not believe in an absolute goodness. He would refute the Bible that it is filled with contradictions but believes that contradictions are not illogical.

Amazing is it not?

An atheist who does not believe in an absolute “right” or “wrong” would tell us that we are wrong.

An atheist who does not believe in an absolute morality would tell us that Christians are immoral.

An atheist who does not believe that evil exist would tell us that God is evil.

Or read this book by Alec Fisher, “Critical Thinking: An Introduction.”
