On the Sunday Special episode of Human Events Daily, host Jack Posobiec spoke with Eric Metaxas, author of the book, "Is Atheism Dead?" to discuss Christianity and whether modern Atheism has truly perished.
"I don't have any doubt that if you are intellectually honest, you have to conclude—you must conclude—Atheism is preposterous," Metaxas told Posobiec. "Now, you have questions about the Bible. You have questions about Christianity or you have questions about faith. That's great. We can talk about your questions. The thesis that there is no God. The evidence from science in the last few decades has become so overwhelming. The only thing you can do is ignore it or look away or just say leave me alone. I don't want to see that."
Metaxas also rooted his argument for God in a positivistic approach and noted that many in Western society are waking up after decades of secularism, and with that comes a renewed relationship with God.
"I realized that as things have become more and more unhinged, many people are kind of waking up and looking around and thinking none of this makes any sense," Metaxas said. "Five minutes ago, somebody decided there's like 57 genders and I'm supposed to go along with that. Suddenly, having a border is a controversial idea. That's weird."
The conclusion is that basic heuristic constructs are being challenged.
"I think people are sort of waking up and saying, 'You know what, I'm not buying this'," he added.
Metaxas explained that that movement away from common sense was "essentially the fruit of many decades of this idea that we know we can live apart from God."
Posobiec said, "we have a computer code. We have a computer code that's written into our cells, the cells of all living things on Earth."
"Why would we have essentially a language in our living cells that randomly came up by itself?" he added.
Metaxas agreed that the sophistication of such a code existing in living beings justifies an essential scientific argument for God.
"You have to be utterly willful to be an atheist you basically in effect, you cannot be an atheist. What you can say is I hate God so much, that I won't admit that I believe he exists."Posobiec also correctly noted that many movements of today, such as DEI initiatives, climate activists, wokeism, are religions sprung up bereft of God but built by minds hungry for God.
