Hey Curran! I know that feeling when you just can’t get why they are not convinced despite all what we know and have discovered over the years. The neo-atheists are quite aggressive and less resilient to the possibility of God. They know that what we know so far is about 2% of the whole universe. And yet they believe that it is more probable to find answers in the unknown 98% than in God. Stephen Hawking even believed that there was a “theory of everything” that yet to be discovered but he dare not call it God. People don’t believe not due to lack of evidence but rather due to lack of will. Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence, anyways. Although, the whole creature points to God, our hearts do as well. Isaiah says:" He said, “Go and tell this people: “ ‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’ Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed."
When a Russian cosmonaut returned from space and reported that he had not found God, C. S. Lewis responded that this was like Hamlet going into the attic of his castle and looking for Shakespeare! But even when God revealed Himself in the person of Christ, they killed him!
Friedrich Nietzsche, in his madman parable, said that we have killed God. And what is quite interesting is the fact that he understood the implications of such a declaration. He understood that once we omit the God figure we lose the compass for what is good and what is bad, our sense of identity and purpose. And the only alternative for God was Man. And we know that Hitler was a great fan of Nietzsche. He adopted this view and took it to heart and what resulted was the greatest massacre of all the massacres combined together.
And why is this so? The bible says in John 3: “This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.”
