ATHEISM

Kircher, the astronomer, having an acquaintance who denied the existence of a Supreme Being, took the following method to convince him of his error. Expecting him on a visit, he placed a handsome celestial globe in a part of the room where it could not escape the notice of his friend, who, on observing it, inquired whence it came, and who was the maker.
  "It was not made by any person," said the astronomer.
    "That is impossible," replied the sceptic; "you surely jest."
      Kircher then took occasion to reason with his friend upon his own atheistical principles, explaining to him that he had adopted this plan with a design to show him the fallacy of his scepticism.
        "You will not," said he, "admit that this small body originated in mere chance, and yet you contend that those heavenly bodies, to which it bears only a faint and diminutive resemblance, came into existence without author or design."
          He pursued this chain of reasoning till his friend was totally confounded, and cordially acknowledged the absurdity of his notions. By night an atheist half believes a God.
      - Edward Young

To sustain the belief that there is no God, atheism has to demonstrate infinite knowledge. Because their declaration is tantamount to saying, "I have infinite knowledge that there is no being in existence with infinite knowledge."
      - Ravi K. Zacharias
