CS Lewis on Atheism

Yeah, I know, it’s hard to top a post on Mexicorn but this is not an attempt to do that.

I think Lewis was an atheist himself before his conversion to Christianity, so he might know a thing or two about this particular worldview,

Consequently atheism turns out to be too simple. If the whole universe has no meaning, we should have never have found out that it has no meaning: just as, if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never know it was dark. Dark would be a word without meaning. – Mere Christianity, p.39
