Well, my friends, I really must say that the world has really gone bonkers going by what some people write on the web. Take for instance, this post about atheism. We are told
That’s right, belief in God and Atheism are not mutually exclusive. You can believe that God created the heavens and the earth, and still affirm Atheism.
Please can someone tell me the definition of atheism again! Here is a person who asserts the universe was created, class dismissed now go home, forget the requirement for providing evidence.
And please, tell me, maybe I am missing something here, how does the above position become
the only intellectually honest position to take in this age of scientific enlightenment?
Then it starts to border on the insane, or else how would someone write
This is the age of Answers in Genesis, Creation Ministries International, and The Institute for Creation Research. Let’s face it, Biblical creation is a scientific fact.
Someone please hit me on the face, I must be dreaming! Next time you are asked what is an oxymoron in an English lesson, here is one, biblical creation and scientific fact in the same sentence! And for lack of a better word, this fellow is an ignoramus, for, please tell, how would someone in this day and age belief such BS?
You can believe that God created everything as recounted in the Bible, but that after creation, God died. You can affirm a godless universe while still believing God created everything.
Who created god? Why did this particular god create anything then commit suicide? What was god doing during god time just before creation? What did god use to create the universe? And why the bible? Why not the Vedas, which are by far more poetic, more sublime than the bible, the Bhagavad gita, or any other religious text? What is so special about the bible?
It solves all the insurmountable problems with the failed hypothesis of Evolution, and it accommodates all the facts of science.
Last I checked, it was Laplace, who said he didn’t require the god hypothesis. It has no explanatory power and means nothing. It really is sad for someone who most likely haven’t read a page of any book on evolution to call it a failed hypothesis!
I can’t go on reading this trope, I will go crazy just responding to him, so as Nietzsche says in Beyond Good and Evil
“He who fights monsters should see to it that he himself does not become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.”
I rest my case!
On a lighter note
and you really can’t beat this god is bigger
and if you want to know why many times we have problems with the religious, look no further than a new life
has the definition of faith changed? What is faith?
and for those of you heathens who are suffering and need to explain it away, look no further than A warning from the dungeon
I couldn’t make sense of what this fellow was saying from off the top of his head, may one of you could help with that: Is atheism really the right option for scientists
and those yet to be saved, what are you waiting for? It is free will all over again! Redemption is a free will
Do you want to go to heaven? Then it is time to start hating like there is no tomorrow, yes, the bible recommends it! You cannot serve two masters
And finally, the reason god came down to save us from himself, so that we can learn forgiveness! Isn’t this awesome? The power of god’s forgiveness.
