When is an atheist an atheist? — 3 Comments

  1. I think it boils down to avoiding responsibility and accountability. A lot of these people you’re describing understand the need to think beyond themselves and therefore consider “spiritual” ideas and awareness as being healthy. The problem with embracing the idea of God is less about having doubts of His existence, and more about wanting to avoid any responsibility that would come with that. They desire a spirituality that can be self-created and self-managed, and is subject to change when they need it to. That’s my thought. 🙂

  2. The hardest part about dealing with atheism isn’t those who admit they are atheists. The people who are hard to reach are the many who call themselves Christians but really live their lives as “practical atheists.” They talk about there being a God and say they believe in him yet live their lives as if he doesnt exist at all.
