“Because their chosen tool—science—has been so successful in discovering material causes in the natural world, atheists mistakenly assume that nothing but material things exist.” They are like a man with a metal detector in the beach. He finds metal but then assumes that because his metal detector cannot not detect plastic and wood that they do not exist. –Stealing from God, p. 159-160, edited.
“The bottom line is that atheism cannot be shown to be true in principle. It has destroyed all the tools necessary to do the job.” Atheism and natural science cannot rule out everything outside science including logic and reason and then attempt to use logic to validate a materialistic philosophy. You can’t get common sense and logic from a test tube or microscope. -Stealing From God, p. 41, edited.
