It's called '6 Ultimate Reasons not to be an atheist'. Not just 6 reasons, but 6 ULTIMATE reasons. This should be good. I'll link to the video, but I warn you that the kids are annoying and the music accompanying the video is aggravating. You have been warned. Here.
The first thing that strikes me is that they claim right at the beginning that the video is not arguing for the existence of gods. But if their argument is that atheism is wrong, then it is necessarily arguing for the existence of gods. A little bit more thought tells me what they're really getting at. These are not reasons that atheism is wrong. They're reasons to not be an atheist, regardless of whether or not there are gods. They'd just like people to be believers anyway. This point will be important later.
Now, I did watch the entire video, but I'm just going to demolish the first two points. The rest is more of the same. Their first 2 ULTIMATE reasons to not be an atheist are:
1. Atheists cannot believe that there is purpose and meaning to life.
What these punks really mean is that we cannot believe that there is an objective, absolute meaning to life handed to us by a supernatural being. I won't dignify their suggestion that we have no meaning to our lives, with a response..... other than to say that I'm glad my purpose in life isn't to worship a being that hides from me and allows so much bad shit to happen in the world.
Well, I agree! It's true! Atheists cannot believe that there is an objective, absolute meaning to life handed to us by a supernatural being. Glad we are in agreement! But wait, you said the atheist worldview could not stand up to philosophical scrutiny (*shudder*). So I guess you have a proof that there is such a thing as an objective, absolute purpose to life handed to us by a supernatural being? That would sure cause atheism some problems. I'm waiting..... No? You just want to move on to point #2 without offering such a proof? Shock! OK, move on. Losers!
2. Atheists cannot believe that there is an objective moral law.
Didn't we just cover this kind of reasoning in the first point? Are all of your points going to be like this? Yes, I agree! Atheists cannot believe that there is an objective, absolute moral law handed to us by a supernatural being. I don't suppose you have a proof that there is such an objective, absolute moral law handed to us by a supernatural being? No? How very disappointing.
It's clear that these kids can't 'finish off' atheism by providing any proof that objective purpose or moral law exist. What they're merely saying is that they
So much for 'philosophical scrutiny'!
