Why are there so many Atheism Blogs?

Why are there so many atheism blogs? I saw recently how one guy collects them all in one place so you can “feed” on a life without God, literally hundreds of blog links, enough reading for several years.

My question is: Why? Why this persistent, diligent pursuit to prove or convince themselves and others that there is no God. Something I read some time ago seems to address this question.

Charles Colson tells about Irina Ratushinskaya, a young girl in the Soviet Union years ago. She was trained in Communist schools and indoctrinated in atheism. She said she could never figure out why her teachers all pitched such a furious battle against someone they said didn’t exist. “God doesn’t exist.” Irina began to question: “Can’t they tell they are giving themselves away? Adults tell you there are no gremlins or ghosts. They tell you once or twice, and that’s it. But with God, they tell you over and over again. So He must exist – and He must be very powerful for them to fear Him so greatly.”

You see, something inside is telling the atheistic bloggers – God really does exist. Rather than yield to his love, the atheist will convince himself/herself that God doesn’t exist and in so doing, proves that he in fact does exist, but that they are unwilling to acknowledge it. The sheer volume of atheistic blogs testify to the existence of one they refuse to acknowledge due to mulish pride.

How Do I Miss God? – An Ancient Poet Answers

The fool [a fool is one who convinces himself that he knows more than he really knows and doesn’t really need to ask questions] says in his heart, [This is not a private conclusion that he/she comes to and keeps to themselves; it is an act of the will that he continues to say over and over again.] “There is no God.”

God will have no place in my life. A person can ask “Is there a God?” and not be a fool. A person can ask “If there is a God, can I know him?” and not be a fool. A person can go through extreme heartache, and wonder if there is a god. These are legitimate questions. But a person who looks around them and still they conclude as an act of their will that there is no God, that person is a fool, according to an ancient poet (Psalm 14:1). A fool is not stupid or intellectually dull; he’s self-willed, despite the evidence. If you think believing in God is by faith, try disbelieving in Him based on all the evidence. It takes a far greater faith to do so. People often ask the question, “How do I find God?” The question that I want to ask is “How do you miss Him?”
