The absence of Good/God is evil, but the absence of belief is NOT atheism?

It's so damn comical how the logic of SOME religious people is so conveniently inconsistent.

When it comes to evil, God couldn't have created it, because evil is simply the absence of His divine will.

When it comes to atheism however, you can't just have an absence of a belief in Good/God. You must either believe in God, or you must believe that God doesn't exist.

You just can't have a real discussion with these types of people.

You realise you're kind of calling atheism evil right?

Well, according to certain Christian logic, atheism is supposed to be evil.

By the same logic, absence of hair is baldness, therefore being bald is evil.

I was referring to his comparison. But that seemed to go over your head. Way to act smug. So thanks for the ammo

Personally I wouldn't think God would consider atheists evil, just wrong.

the absence of good isn't necessarily evil. the absence of God is impossible, because God will always be there, even if there is evil.

Evil is either joy at the expense of others or...

enjoyment of another's torment.
