An atheist is someone who says there is no God. An agnostic is someone who says we don't or can't know whether or not there is a God.
I recently heard someone say that there are no atheists, only rebellious people. The more I think about that statement, the truer it rings. Why? Because it is impossible not to know there is a God.
It first enters our consciousness that there is a God when we simply look around at our surroundings. The Bible says:
- since there is such an intricately detailed, well designed creation, it must have been made by an intelligent, powerful Being.
- all of our life experiences lead us to the conclusion that if something exists, someone made it.
- our minds think logically and deduce conclusions from the evidence we observe.
- we have intelligence and are able to comprehend the relationship between a creation and its creator.
