In 2007 Atheist Sam Harris said “Atheism is not a philosophy, just as non-racism is not. It is not a worldview, though it is frequently portrayed as one.”(1) What a violation of the basic laws of logic! It is impossible to NOT have a worldview. Anyone that says they do not have a worldview has a perspective on what a worldview is and a belief of why they don’t have a worldview; which is in essence….a worldview!
So Sam Harris states a belief about atheism while denying any belief at all, but he clearly believes it!
At the same conference that Sam Harris attended, Richard Dawkins stated “Religion is not the root of all evil, but it gets in the way of [determining] how we got here and where we find ourselves. And that is an evil in itself.”
But doesn’t Dawkins reject the existence of moral good or evil? After all he did write “The universe that we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose [i.e. no God], no evil, no good, nothing but pitiless indifference.” (2)
These are observable basic inconsistencies in the atheistic mind. I would call it Doctrinal problem inside the church of atheism.
