When you look at the title, you might be saying, "Hey Rob, what do you mean that atheism is a bankrupt worldview?" First off what prompted this topic for this posting is from finding a meme asking this same question on a Facebook apologetics group. The meme asked, "Is Atheism Impossible?" This can be taken a couple of ways.
One way is in the thinking that it is hard to win an atheist to believe in the existence of God and the become a follower of Jesus Christ, God in human flesh. The other way is to look at this from the angle of two terms in the question, "atheism" and ideologically bankrupt." Here is the approach that I wish to take on this subject since there are those a whole lot philosophically astute who have written on this, like Dr. William Lane Craig.
