|Atheism collapses under its own weight|
Try to rebuff theism and one has no ultimate authority to assert that he understands anything in the cosmos. God is the ultimate reference point, and He is the judge of all things. God is the foundation for all meaning, purpose, morals, and rationality. God alone is the one who makes any rational argument possible and reasonable. There is assured proof that God lives. Bahnsen put it well when he specified, “The Christian offers the self-attesting Christ to the world as the only foundation upon which a man must stand to give any ‘reasons’ for anything at all. The whole notion of ‘giving reasons’ is completely destroyed by any ontology other than the Christian one. The Christian claims that only after accepting the biblical scheme of things will any man be able to understand and account for his own rationality.”5 All anti-theists intellectually fail to ground the atheistic foundation they are standing on.
Unless thought is valid we have no reason to believe in the real universe (C.S. Lewis).
