God Doesn't Believe in Atheists

There's no such thing as atheists. God doesn't believe in atheists, and God is omniscient and cannot lie; therefore, atheists cannot exist.

Why I think God doesn't believe in atheists:
  1. God expects us to look at the world around us, realize the wonder of it all, the complexity of the whole thing, and realize that Someone must have created this place. (In other words, the heavens declare His glory.)
    "The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse."
    Romans 1:18-20
    This is general revelation.
  2. God speaks to us. Most of us are too-self absorbed to hear the words of God, but we also have the written word in the Bible. The book cannot be denied. For example, a few hundred years B.C., God predicted Israel's return as a nation in 1948.
    "For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land."
    Ezekiel 36:24 (Ezekiel goes into more detail, but this verse is the crux of the thing.)

    This is special revelation. (I suppose we could also refer to this as "I told you so.")
  3. You naturally know that there is good and evil. You can deny it, twist it, or question it, but at a basic level everyone knows, at least to some degree, what is right and wrong. How can there be right and wrong, unless there is someone greater who defines these things? We must do right to please God, and for really no other reason (even though it is in our own best interests).
    "Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law, since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them."
    Romans 2:14-15
    (This is the Law, if I must say it.)
So there you go.
