Those Smart Athiests

I often go to YouTube to check out and study apologetics videos and quite often, I read the comments which are left behind by atheists. Question: why is it that many atheists claim to use logic, rationality and the such, but, cannot see the most simple flaws in their argumentation? As I was watching a video this evening (which was produced by Matt Slick from) which was addressing the “Transcendental Argument for God’s Existence,” an atheist made the following comment, which is not unique to him;

To be a Universal Truth a fact would have to be observable, verifiable, falsifiable and repeatable. That being said, Science is the ONLY road to REAL Truth, all else is just speculation.

What? OK. A universal truth can only be observable? Well now, I would like to know where this atheist observed this? Where in the universe has this “smart” atheist observed that all “universal truths” must be observable? He must have universal experience to know that “all” universal truths are observable. Hence, he must be God.

Greg Bahnsen hit the nail on the head when he proclaimed of those who deny the Christian faith, the following;

In actuality, this autonomous man is dull, stubborn, boorish, obstinate and stupid. He professes himself to be wise, but from the opening of his mouth it is clear that he is (in the biblical sense) “a fool”—his only wisdom would consist in keeping silent (Prov. 17:28). “The heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness” (Prov. 12:23), and the fool flaunts his folly (Prov. 13:16). He eats up folly unreflectingly (Prov. 15:14), pours it out (Prov. 15:2), and returns to it like a dog to his vomit (Prov. 26:11). He is so in love with his folly and so dedicated to its preservation that “It is better for a man to meet a bear robbed of her whelps, than a fool in his folly” (Prov. 17:12). The fool does not really want to find the truth; he only wants to be self-justified in his own imaginations. While he may feign objectivity, “A fool hath no delight in understanding, but only that his heart may reveal itself” (Prov. 18:2). He is committed to his own presuppositions and wishes to guard his autonomy. (Bahnsen, Greg. Always Ready: Direction For Defending the Faith. Covenant Media Press. May, 2008: Loc. 943.)
