Taken from American Atheists online media:
“When American Atheists was formed in 1963, a contemporary scientific symbol was chosen; this acknowledges that only through the use of scientific analysis and free, open inquiry can humankind reach out for a better life.
Recognizing the new atomic era, but also emphasizing the truths of older scientific findings, the atomic whirl was chosen. The atom is still a distinguishing unit of all matter, the smallest particle of an element that can exist and still retain the properties of that element.
You may notice that one of the orbitals in our symbol is broken, or open-ended. This demonstrates that while Atheists rely on the scientific method for learning about the cosmos and increasing our knowledge about nature, we know that not all of the answers are in. We recognize that with new knowledge come new questions and areas for human inquiry and exploration.”
Shall we dissect this dislogic? Yes!
“this symbol (referring to the atomic symbol with an “A” inside) acknowledges that ONLY through the use of scientific analysis and free, open inquiry can humankind reach out for a better life……..while Atheists rely on the scientific method for learning……..WE KNOW THAT ALL OF THE ANSWERS ARE NOT IN….
“…If THEY know that ALL of the ANSWERS for existence and being and acting and thinking ARE NOT IN…”, emphasis added and ie (everything has not been discovered) then HOW CAN ANYONE CLAIM ABSOLUTELY AND BASE THEIR WORLDVIEW ON THE GROSS ILLOGICAL ASSUMPTION that God, a god, a supernatural entity, WILL NOT SOME DAY BE DISCOVERED OR REVEALED??????
If this God we believe has chosen to conceal himself through nature and reveal himself through conscience and through history in so many various ways, tangibly, without excuse, how will anyone deny history, but more arrogantly deny any possibility of future proof for GOD? This God who does not rightfully bow to man’s emotional flights of pride, hate, and self-interested and self-inflicted violence has chosen to reveal himself in various ways in time, first to the First order of His creation by original direct relation of his presence, second by relation to the Law and the Prophets and his direct presence, and third by revealed direct relation of presence. God has spoken through: Himself, people, animals, bushes, fire, still-small voice, Prophets who never made wrong predictions, (prophets who claimed to be and failed to predict, were not recorded and acknowledged as such and faced the penalty of death in the institution of pre-Christ Christianity, aka Old Covenant Judaism. IOW, dont speak for God unless God really spoke to you. So the Atheist says prove God and I will believe? or does the Atheist say prove God and I will choose not to love him?” to not believe? find proof and I will hypothesize around the evidence, the illusion?
