FACING THE APOLOGETIC CHALLENGES OF SCIENTIFIC ATHEISM

by HENK (H. G.) STOKER in Vol. 3 No. 2 / Oct 2017



Abstract
The contemporary challenges of scientific atheism to the Christian worldview should be viewed by Christian apologists as a conflict about truth and meaning. The Christian worldview makes sense of the rational intelligibility of the universe, while the reductionist approach of naturalism undermines the clarity of the design in created reality and is a worldview that destroys the ultimate meaning of life. This article focuses on the differences in worldview between Christianity and atheism and discusses some apologetic ways through which Christians can handle the challenges of atheism, often disguised as neutral, scientific realism.
