Robert Reich, the former U.S. labor secretary under President Bill Clinton, once wrote that ‘God is worse than terrorism’, arguing that followers of God pose a more significant threat to the 21st Century world than terrorists do and concluded “ the great conflict of the modern world will not be between the West and terrorism but between those who believe in the primacy of the individual and those who believe that human beings owe their allegiance and identity to a higher authority; between those who believe in science, reason, and logic and those who believe that truth is revealed through Scripture and religious dogma”. These are the lengths atheists go while trying to negate the existence of God. This process of negation involves playing of many mental games that stretches their psychological defense mechanisms. The three men, who popularized atheism in the 19th Century, had almost the same experiences early in their lives, and there is a common psychological pattern evident in their later rebellion. Thomas Henry Huxley, Sigmund Freud and Friedrich Nietzsche all had psychological struggles in their early in their lives. They all had cruel and domineering fathers suffered extreme shyness, depression and obsessive fears. Therefore, they made it their work to destroy God, who to them was a symbol of their fathers. Since the existence of God is a reality, an atheist mind protects itself from the reality through rejection of God’s existence using several psychological defense mechanisms such as rationalization, repression, displacement, suppression and denial.
Rationalization is an atheist’s favorite psychological defense mechanism. They rely on false reasoning that sounds logical to negate the reality of God. They will bombard you with thousands of reasons as to why God does not exist, and make them sound as logical as possible. John Pasquini, in his book Atheist Personality Disorder: Addressing a Distorted Mindset, points out that atheists are good at using pedantic language to convince themselves and others, as they fool themselves that they are intellectually superior, while in the real sense, they are mere rationalizers. Displacement is another popular coping mechanism that an atheist uses. They transfer their anger towards believers and belief systems. Ever wondered why the thing atheists are good at is attacking religion believers? It’s a coping mechanism. Over-relying on these defense mechanisms can lead to emotional immaturity and disjointed thinking that culminate in personality disorders.
There is enough proof that atheism is a personality disorder. Atheists have among the highest suicide rates in the world. Atheist countries have a suicide rate of 32 percent per every 100,000 people as compared to 4 per every 100,000 people in catholic countries and in protestant countries. Furthermore, they are the most, aggressive bitter and unhappy group in the society. They are less likely to get married twice as likely to get divorced and highly likely to have no children. Statistics from atheistic regimes indicate that atheists are among the most intolerant groups in the world. The most popular atheistic nations are the former Soviet Union, Vietnam and North Korea. According to Pasquini, the Soviets destroyed more than 42,000 churches between 1917 and 1969, leaving the country with less than 6,000 churches. North Korea destroyed more than 500 Buddhist temples, while Vietnam destroyed more than 700. 168 out of 270 suicide bombings that were carried out between 1980 and 2000 were not by Muslims but by Marxist atheists, including the bombing that killed President Ranasinge Premadasa of Sri Lanka in 1993, carried out by an atheist terrorist group known as Tamil Tigers.
The next time an atheist tries to engage you in an argument. Leave them alone. You don’t have to prove the existence of God to attention-seeking psychotics who wants to assert their intellectual superiority through psychological coping mechanisms. I find it odd that renowned pastors go to the lengths of engaging them in television debates. You don’t have to prove that God exists. His existence is not debatable!!
