Kirk Cameron is either astonishingly stupid or a liar. Those are really the only two conclusions one can reach after watching this video promoting his new movie, Unstoppable. In it he claims that there are two things that every atheist must “cling to on faith.” They’re both nonsense.
The first is that “there is no God.” Wrong. Very few atheists make such an absolute statement. Even Richard Dawkins agrees that it’s possible that there is a God. But possible doesn’t mean plausible or certain. The overwhelming majority of atheists simply take the position that there is no compelling evidence to justify believing in a God. Present that compelling evidence and we would change our minds, as rational people would.
These two claims are so utterly wrongheaded that one can easily conclude that Cameron is either lying or stupid. Take your pick.
