Do Atheists Exist?

I just read this interesting article from a secular science news site:

"Scientists Discover that Atheists Might Not Exist and That's Not A Joke"
"Cognitive scientists are becoming increasingly aware that a metaphysical outlook may be so deeply ingrained in human thought processes that it cannot be expunged.
"While this idea may seem outlandish—after all, it seems easy to decide not to believe in God—evidence from several disciplines indicates that what you actually believe is not a decision you make for yourself. Your fundamental beliefs are decided by much deeper levels of consciousness, and some may well be more or less set in stone."
In other words, whether you believe in creationism, evolution, or something entirely different, it appears that our instinct to search for meaning beyond the limited scope of our fleeting lives is hard-wired into us.

In that light, consider the following Bible verses:
Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. (Ecclesiastes 3:11)
They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. (Romans 1:19-20) 
Only fools say in their hearts, "There is no God." (Psalm 14:1)
Science and faith are NOT mutually exclusive.  Rather, the former is simply the study of the mechanics of the latter.

Believe like a child, but don't check your brain at the door.

Love in Christ,
Pastor Joe
