There was a recent survey of atheists and agnostics in Great Britain that revealed something startling. It found that just as some religious people struggle with maintaining their faith, so do many non-believers struggle with maintaining their lack of faith, particularly when faced with unanswerable questions about life, evolution and the universe.
This really shouldn’t come as a surprise. While atheists in recent years have become more strident and “in-your-face” (probably because they can band together on the Internet in atheist bubbles), it’s long been obvious to anyone with an understanding of theology that atheism is a form of religion.
For all the atheists’ talk about how irrational it is to make a “leap of faith” and believe in God with no hard empirical evidence, it takes just as much faith to decide emphatically that there is no God. They must know that it’s impossible to prove a negative. I’m sure this nagging doubt about their lack of faith must trouble them. But who knows? Maybe it’s the doorway through which they will one day find genuine faith.
After all, the Lord works in mysterious ways.
