Friends, Here’s a funny story from the Christian Post: “No God” Ads to Hit London Buses. I guess Dick and his friends at the British Humanist Association are raising money (or have already and continue to do so) in order to put advertisements on city buses. Says the article: The slogan is the brainchild of… Continue reading Richard Dawkins is Probably not an Atheist
Friends, I have had this sneaking suspicion for a while that Atheists really don’t have a problem with ‘God’ as much as they do with Christians or Christianity. I don’t know too much about Ray Comfort except that I think he is a big fan of Kirk ‘Buck’ Cameron, but he issued an interesting challenge… Continue reading Atheists and Muslims and Christians
Friends, I have posted many thoughts about evolution and its impact on the general population of the world. I’d like to share someone else’s thoughts tonight. These thoughts concern how replacing the Creator with evolution has destroyed our understanding of sin. Consider: The basic reason why our modern Western culture has lost the concept of… Continue reading Creation and Sin and Atheism
Friends, I have two things to say about this story at the Christian Post: Borders Tags Atheist Book With… First, I think some people are way, way to sensitive. Consider these two well-meaning, but theologically under-read people: “I am quite sure that Borders intended their Christmas card as a joke. However, I personally find it… Continue reading Bordering on Hilarious
Friends, Families of Fallen Utah Highway Patrol Troopers Fight Atheist Group Over Roadside Cross Memorials. Don’t atheists have something better to do with their time, like, say, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless? jerry
Friends, I haven’t yet figured out this fella named Dinesh D’Souza. He seems to be all the rage nowadays among certain wings of churchianity. However, I came across this little essay he wrote and published at Townhall.com and I thought it was a rather interesting piece: Are Atheists the New Gays? Mr D’Souza spends the majority… Continue reading “Are Atheists the New Gays?” or Are Faith and Reason Incompatible?
Friends, I think you will appreciate this: Is Belief in Divine Creation Rational? This is a lecture by David Anderson. I’m piggybacking on a post by William Dembski at Uncommon Descent. I listened to about the first 15 minutes online then downloaded it to my mp3. So far, I’m impressed. I think you will be too.… Continue reading Is Belief in Divine Creation Rational? & Much More!
Friends, Here’s part two in my ongoing list. 11. The assumption that those outside the Church have a right to tell those inside the church how to conduct themselves with respect to the Scripture. 12. The assumption that the Church cannot make statements about sin in this world. It seems it’s OK for the world… Continue reading 10 More Things that Really Irritate Me (11-20)
Friends, I first came across this at Uncommon Descent, but it is so good I thought it deserved its own place here: Atheism: An Intellectual Revolt or Pelvic Rebellion by Doug Giles at Townhall.com. I was especially intrigued by Giles’ comments about the atheist’s fear of accountability. I’ll note two such comments: In addition, ladies, Darwin didn’t… Continue reading Food for the ‘Intellectual Atheist’s’ Thought
Friends, Darwinism is defunct, deadly, and dying. Stunning Documentary Links Darwin, Hitler. Charles Darwin should share with Adolph Hitler the blame for the 11 million or more lives lost in the Holocaust, a provocative video documentary explains. And, the program says, the more than 45 million American lives lost to abortion also can be blamed on… Continue reading Some Thoughts on Darwinisms Demise
Friends, Turns out there were other similar episodes by Baylor University. Click Here. It seems that even ‘historically Christian’ universities are not above fear. Seems that even Baylor University is getting in on the action against professor Bob Marks. In part: “As many of you have heard, Marks, a distinguished professor of electrical and computer engineering, has been… Continue reading **UPDATED** I Told You They Censor & S Harris on the Future of ‘Religion’
Friends, Albert Mohler has written a great post concerning how atheists deal with the Bible. He is responding (sort of) to an essay by Carlin Romano at the The Chronicle of Higher Education. Mohler wrote: Strange as it may seem, I think I like Christopher Hitchens’ approach better. Hitchens at least understands what is at… Continue reading A Great Post from Mohler
Friends, I have an apology to make, sort of, to evolutionists. For a long time I have been referring to them as Darwinists. I am sorry I have done so because I think I may have misled them into thinking that they have more credibility than they actually have. The entire idea of Darwinism is… Continue reading An apology (of sorts)
Friends, My anonymous friend at Adeistic has a link to this wonderful editorial by Mark Morford at the San Fransisco Gate. The editorial The Fall of the Godmongers: Praise Jesus it’s the Collapse of Evangelical Christian Rule in America: Rejoice! is really a fantastic essay. I particularly enjoyed this part: And why? Because the fundamentalist mind-set is… Continue reading I can’t Believe I agree!
Friends, I’m following Joe’s advice and not painting all atheists with the same brush. Normally, at least as far as Richard Dawkins and others are concerned, atheists are the ones who are being persecuted by the religious. They call on atheists to stand up for their atheist rights. They denounce mostly Christians as being dupes… Continue reading What ‘some’ atheists do to get attention…
