Science Can't Deny Our God-Shaped Void

This short devotion explains a fact about mankind that even atheists believe. Other great quotes by C.S.Lewis and Pascal

"Atheism is psychologically impossible because of the way humans think." ~ Science 2.0

This quote is based on the scientific research of atheistic scientists. No matter how much a man might protest, there is something deep within us that believes in something beyond ourselves.

C.S. Lewis said it this way: "If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world."

Blaise Pascal said it this way: "Within each human being there is a God-shaped void.”

God clarifies it this way: "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 people are without excuse" (Romans 1:20).

As Christians, we know man is created for fellowship with God but separated by sin. The longing in our souls is not a product of evolution, but a confirmation that we need and want God.

Bible Love Notes


  1. Amen! I always figure if scientists are searching, they will find! That is a biblical principle, right?!

  2. I have a friend and two acquaintances that are atheists. How do you tell an atheist about Jess. How do you approach them? If anyone can help me, please do! Also, please be praying for them with me. Their names are Robert, Jerry, and Lindsey.

    1. Hi Jessica,
      I join you in prayer for Robert, Jerry, and Lindsey. May they come to know Jesus and follow Him with their whole hearts.

      Sometimes the best way to share Christ is to ask good questions. The Holy Spirit can help you ask things that get your friends to start thinking, and hopefully they will see the flaws in their atheism.

      For example, being sensitive to timing, you might ask your friends why they believe there is no God. You could ask them how they can feel confident in something they can't prove. Or you could ask them how they feel when they have problems they can't solve on their own.

      If they have a problem, you might say, "I know you don't believe in prayer, but I do, so I'll be praying for your situation."

      You might tell them about ways that God has spoken to your heart or tell them about an answered prayer or a situation that highlights some aspect of your faith.

      I pray God will give you wisdom and creativity to share with your friends.

      And keep praying for them.
