The arrogance of secularists is astounding, with absolutely no evidence whatsoever, they just continue to assert that there is no God, or that He is either irrelevant or all about enabling us, i.e., whatever we want, however we want to do things, it’s His responsibility to make it happen and then to make sure everything works out in the end for everyone. The Great Enabler, the Great Creampuff, Santa Claus. There is an estimated 2 – 5 % of the American population that calls itself atheist. This alone indicates that a lack of believe in God is aberrant, such a tiny sample is not statistically indicative of a valid position. In or about 80% of the population calls itself Christian. The atheists segment, so tiny, even really, statistically speaking just aberrant and not really statistically valid, still tries to make a case for their being no God. An arrogance that is absolutely breath taking, they take all the scientific evidence, all the philosophical evidence, pick and choose what they like, make their case on tiny, usually irrelevant arguments and say “oh, yeah, there’s no god and if anyone believes likewise they’re stupid, bigoted, hypocrites.” Really? Tell me I’m wrong.
When people really have no valid argument, they always turn to ad hominem attacks and in their stunning arrogance, basically make their case against god by calling other people names. They are certainly entitled to make their case and challenge the status quo, but for the most part these people are just cranks [yea I know I just called them a name, but by definition…] who really make no case except a personal one and then in nasty, spiteful arrogance, they throw names at anyone who dares to disagree with them.
In “Answers Magazine” (July-Sept 2014), Ken Ham describes the interview that Jon Stewart of “The Daily Show” with Richard Dawkins, describes as “one of the most outspoken atheists in the world – the author of the the best selling anti-Christian book “The God Delusion”. (p 40)
John Stewart: So where do we go when we die?
Dawkins: Bertrand Russell – well – we either get buried or cremated. Or we give our bodies to science. Bertrand Russell said –
Stewart: But you actually don’t know what happens to us?
Dawkins: I don’t know what happens to us, but I know that our consciousness is wrapped up in our brains. I know that our brains rot…
So Richard Dawkins, a man who is so certain there is no God, is not totally certain about what going to happen to him when he dies. And yet he speaks with certainty as he tries to indoctrinate people to believe in his religion of atheism!”
“Because Dawkins, like all human beings, is finite, he has to admit he doesn’t have all evidence and so he can’t prove his atheism.”
The following is a U-Tube link on an interview with Stewart and Dawkins.
Everything Dawkins says he concedes he can’t prove, there’s no evidence for his claims, but “that’s my story and I’m sticking to it”, although he doesn’t even have the integrity to say that straight out. The fact of the matter is that atheism is a faith paradigm that is groundless. He makes a claim “well there’s billions of stars, there has to be other places that could produce life.” But the fact is that when you calculate the chances of life for earth all the factors that had to come together to create an incredibly narrow environment on the broad spectrum of the universe, that man could actually live in, to say that happened by chance and “should” happen by chance based on the supposition that there are so many other stars out there, there has to be other life, is an ignorance of statistical probability that is staggering. He would have at least a little integrity if he admitted that according to physical law, that human life here on earth is so aberrant that the chances of life somewhere else is just out of the bounds of probability. I’m saying that solely on the basis of the numbers, the fact that we are here is so statistically aberrant as to be absurd that to say, based on nothing at all, if Mr Dawkins could at least admit that, he would have some scientific integrity instead of babbling on Stewart’s show that he doesn’t have anything for anything. Stewart really does draw it out of him, that his beliefs are as much faith based as Christianity.
This is my story and I’m sticking to it, there is a God, He has told us what we need to know about Him. He has sent His Son, Jesus Christ, in order for us to know Him first hand and to know how our relationship works with Him. The Bible is 66 books written over 1,500 years on three continents, people from different backgrounds all with the same string running through it and ending with the predicted coming of Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us how the universe was created in a way that is plausible. Yea, you can’t account for God statistically, but to say that you can account for all creation and disregard mathematical probability is lacking in any kind of integrity.
