It is good (as well as alarming) to be reminded of the true nature of atheism and, interestingly, its direct connection to Darwinian evolution. If the statistic of “148 million dead in 90 years at the hands of 52 professing atheists” isn’t sobering then perhaps our conscience is indeed “seared” as the Apostle Paul points out. I’m afraid that the mass murder which marred the twentieth century will only be outdone by what lies in store for our current century if we don’t, as Soltzenytzin urged, repent and return to our true Creator. Great article, and well worth the extra space!

Absolutely brilliant. Very well constructed.

That’s a lot of ignorant and apologetic [expletive deleted] you’ve collected there!

More propaganda for your blind sheep huh? Figures. Nothing in this stupid post was even true or even logical. Damn retards. You people should stopy lying to people!

Wonderful complilation on Atheism. I was blogging on American Thinker last night as a so called ‘Jenn’ wrote AN ARTICLE that she is a lapsed capital ‘A’ Atheist. I suggested she investigate creation.com. One can only hope and pray people will honestly keep searching or that some bloggers on the site will do the same. ... Thanks again and God bless you all for the wonderful work you do.

Smarter than You from Greece and the gentleman from the Netherlands claim that this is false, propaganda and ignorance(?), yet provide no evidence to support their stance. I found the article to be well referenced, so unless these detractors can prove otherwise, I suggest that they start researching that which they are making claims about. I firmly believe that as Christians, we are able to give a logical and reasonable answer for the faith we hold so dear. Once again, thank you CMI for your consistent stance on the Gospel and for providing a much needed ministry and outreach. God bless you and your ministry.

Amazing article, very valuable and comprehensive. The major comment I would add to help your readers is that all the various logic of God cannot prove or even indicate a triune God or the divinity of Jesus Christ. If we “prove” God exists because we need a basis for morality, or a cause for the universe, we do NOT prove that God is in particular Jesus Christ, or has a personality, or has given the particular 10 commandments we know to Moses. I suspect we learn a lot about how we think about the world when we contemplate these various logical and philosophical considerations, but we learn nothing about the connection or lack thereof of any God we thus conclude exists to the God and his rules described in Scripture.

One thing I appreciate is honesty. So often atheists wish to pose as objectively scientific and to characterise Christians (especially the young earth kind) as ‘biased against reality’.
This well-documented article serves as reality check for such unfounded statements. It should also encourage Christians to cease being ashamed of what is overall a good record. After all, modern science itself owes much to Christian men and Christian presuppositions.
We ought to look to the ultimate end of any system of thought to see where it leads us. Here atheism and Christianity both have the runs on the board—with two totally different ‘scores’.

Finally someone pointed out the obvious. YES atheism IS evil, no, decent, God-fearing people are not "hindering progress", unless that progress is on the highway to hell.
Do you know how many people the proverbial Spanish Inquisition sentenced to death in its hundreds of years of existence? The number didn’t even get up to three thousand… Stalin killed more people in a day.
Terribly sorry, I went on a rant there… anyhow, congratulations!
