I think the question should be, "Does Atheism prove God exists?"
Everybody on this forum has their own conception of God. Now before the atheists stand up to defend themselves, all atheists have a concept of god,
they got to have a concept to disbelieve in or there is no point. Atheism is a rejection of a codified set of beliefs, how can they reject something
if there is nothing to reject?
We live in a universe of Relative Duality. Up and Down, Left and Right, Belief and Non Belief. In order for rejection of belief to exist, or just
plain non-belief in something, that something must exist. Although the Psalmist said that anyone who won't believe in God is a fool, we should be
grateful that Atheism exists.
1. I'm grateful for nonbelievers since they provide a stark contrast to which we can get questions and answers.
2. Although the Atheistic Evangelism is out there, they are providing a simple service. See point 1. Although there are some intelligent people out
there in the Scientific Community who should not be atheists. Neil DeGrasse Tyson, when he described the new theories of the beginning of the Earth,
I liked it so much that I said "he'd love it if he were a god!" (i.e. creating his own planet Earth).
3. Sadly, though, because of their rejection of belief, an Atheist thinks they are smarter than God. Which is simply not true. Just ask them if they
can figure out teleportation or the Star Trek transporter (Someone did, actually. )
