Perhaps we should consider the possibility that skeptical objections are the atheists’ facade, a scholarly veneer masking the real causes of their unbelief. Atheists may insist that their unbelief is the result of impartial reasoning and an unbiased look at the evidence. But what if these arguments were a smokescreen – an exercise in self-deception? What if atheists’ will and moral compass were more responsible for their anti-theism? Drawing on Scripture, psychology, philosophy, and case studies of the lives of famous atheists, Spiegel shows that atheism is a suppression of mankind’s inborn sense of God’s existence. Such anti-faith springs from moral rebellion against God’s ethical standards, and often the psychological trauma of a missing or defective father.
