Wondering about Atheists and the Will to Disbelieve
I’m intrigued to ask any of my resident atheists a fairly simple question: If somehow it were shown to you incontrovertibly that God did exist, say, by moving Australia into the Atlantic for a day, what would you do? How would you respond to the knowledge that God is real? How would it affect your life? How would you feel? Would it make you angry? Glad? Fearful? Or What? I ask because typically, my atheist readers appear to imagine themselves as paragons of impartiality and reason but they consistently strike me as people who badly *want* God to not exist.
So: what would be your reaction to the news that God exists and Jesus is his Son and so forth? Use your imagination and pretend it’s all true. What’s your reaction?
