I posted “Quotes on atheism” a few days ago, and it has generated a good discussion in the comments section. If you are all interested in atheism in light of the Christian arguments for the existence of God, take a look at the string on comments, and feel free to jump in.
Here are some more quotes on atheism from the March/April 2008 issue of Modern Reformation magazine. All of these are from C.S. Lewis:
Atheism turns out to be too simple. If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning.
Now that I am a Christian I do not have moods in which the whole thing looks very improbable; but when I was an atheist I had moods in which Christianity looked terribly probable.
And his classic statement on Christ:
A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic–on the level with a man who says he is a poached egg–or he would be the devil of hell. You must take your choice. Either this was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us.
Grace and Peace
