Mindless Atheism (Quick Apologetics)

Atheists often mock Christians as being
"stupid" for their beliefs, but atheism, being
mindless, doesn't even rise to the level
of stupidity. Thus comparatively speaking,
atheism makes Alfred E. Newman
look brilliant.
Atheism—particularly materialistic atheism—holds that matter is all that exists; there is nothing that is immaterial. But if nothing is immaterial, then thoughts cannot exist, since thoughts are immaterial. Atheism, then, taken to its logical consistency must deny the existence of thoughts. 

And so atheism, by its own admission, is mindless. It doesn’t even rise to the level of stupidity, for at least stupidity assumes some level of intelligence. 

“The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’” (Psalm 14:1a)
