Atheism and Ridicule

Atheists ridicule the idea of an omnipotent and beneficent God, citing the many instances of suffering. However, consistently absent from their dismal portrait are the blessed aspects of life.

People vote with their feet. We cling to life as long as we can, signifying that life is a good thing, worth living. Just think of it, we hunger, and God has provided food! We thirst, and He has provided water. We tire, and there is sleep. We need beauty, and this world is plastered with beauty. We need friends and family, and they are generously made available. Our needs are supremely satisfied!

If life is really such a bad deal, the atheist can sign out, but he doesn’t. He clings to God’s gift of life. What does this communicate?
