I have long wanted to write a few thoughts down regarding Atheism and it’s naturalistic foundations. I have previously written on the subject, and the paper below extends the thinking behind that post and adds a couple of other things I’ve come across since then.
This paper depends on the connection between atheism (the belief that there is no God) and naturalistic evolution. This connection seems to be a necessary connection, so if naturalistic evolution falls, atheism is robbed of its only real chance to be “intellectually fulfilling” (to use Richard Dawkins’ words). In this case, atheism is in my opinion irrational, or as James Speigel said, “Atheism is a form of intellectual suicide.”
For details and the argument, read the paper below.
