Key Steps

  1. “Athesim 2.0” (Paul Devine)
    1. You cannot move away from something without moving toward something else
    2. Atheism is not “I don’t believe in God.” It is a complex belief system with some unsettling conclusions
      1. If there is no God: you are just biology, chemistry, and physics. You are just a collection of cells and a body without a mind or a soul
        1. “I don’t have a body. I am a body.”
      2. If there is no God, you don’t have free will. Every decision is determined for you
        1. “Everyone still looks before they cross the road.”
      3. If there is no God, you have absolutely no value
        1. That also means there is no justice
    3. Something in us hopes this is not true. Why is that?
  2. Video to end: “A Shadow of a Doubt”
