A lack of so-called ‘scientific evidence’ in the existence of the personal God Who spoke is not the true reason why godless Westerners reject belief in Him. Their rejection is due to a desire to live free of the moral constraints God requires. (Psalm 14:1):
Those who want to escape the guilt and accountability accompanying transgression of Moral Law so as to escape the condemnation of conscience, will habitually ruin or desensitize their conscience through embrace of lies and other deceptions and denial of truth and His existence. In this way they deny their own accountability, and by extension, their own living souls (and the citadel of soul: mind/spirit), free will (ie, it’s not my fault; I couldn’t help myself), plus meaning, and purpose. Thus, having foolishly destroyed themselves, imagine they are enlightened and superior and proceed to ridicule, scoff, jeer, and persecute faithful believers because they prefer darkness (evil deeds) to light. (John 3:19)
The preferences of the wicked remain however, consciously made acts of mind and free will.
The conscience is located in the subconscious mind and is a God-designed recorder of secret thoughts, motives, and actions from youth that serves as a guidance system. The will is located within the conscious mind – also designed by God. The wicked redefine conscience as bad feelings, and the will as causation and triggering:
The Light came into the world but was not loved by wicked men because it brought consequences from which they recoiled and revolted. They loved sin and their own worldly wisdom, which does not “descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.” (James 3:15) Thus Western sons of disobedience mounted a revolution against the Creator God Who Spoke (John 1) and rejected the atonement of Christ who cleanses and regenerates the heart(spirit/conscience/intellect) of sin through cleansing of conscience and transformation of habitual evil thinking and behavior patterns of old.
The wicked willfully choose the satanic heresies of Darwin (life and universe created from nothing) and Nietzsche (the God Who Spoke is dead) together with satanically dehumanizing ideologies because darkness was the choice they loved and celebrated. (Romans 1:28-32)
In “Rediscovering Holiness,” J.I. Packer tells us that Satan’s strategy is to corrupt, desensitize, and if possible kill our consciences and that ideologies and a conforming church aid him in his goal:
God’s Judgment conspicuously reveals the unholy love of the sons of disobedience. (Romans 1:18-25) For the impious man who chooses to reject regeneration but chooses instead annihilation or evolution (purification over time in new flesh/bodies), rather than resurrection God’s Judgment is made upon his or her entire lifetime of habitual choices (recorded in the conscience) as well as on his or her present habitually bad character.
The present bad character is the outcome of a lifetime of habitual thinking, motives, freely made choices, and behaviors consciously and willfully made. Their works over time were evil and their habitual choices, thinking, and behaviors supplied permanence and energy to their ‘love,’ and this reveals its historical antecedent. Thus the judgment of eternal law falls upon them and is made evident in giving them over to ‘uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves ‘(Romans 1:24). The blinding of eye and ear (Matthew 13:10) is the judicial result of their preferred ‘love,” thus, “He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still…” (Revelation 22:11
In the Problem of Pain, CS Lewis said there are only two kinds of people in the end:
For all seek Jesus, the Physician of our souls, and confess with their mouth that He is Lord, and believe in their hearts that God raised Him from the dead, and who humbly confess and repent of their sins will be saved. (Romans 10:9) They shall enter Paradise restored (earth purified by fire and remade):
But for all who crave sin without guilt and say to the Lord our God, ‘my will be done’, this present earth that is passing away with its lying, thievery, wars, mob violence, chaos, murder, tyranny, and other evils is the closest they will ever come to Paradise.

The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator’s supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights.”--Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others."--St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
