Christians and the Old Testament, Part 4

February 16, 2015 at 8:39 AM 2 comments

Previously in this short series, we discussed comments made by an atheist who obviously believes he knows it all and if only religious people would get out of the way, Evolution could continue on its merry way. He believes that religion has “stalled” evolution, which I find to be a remarkable statement.

As a reminder, our atheist friend sent me these comments, which whether he realizes it or not, go to the heart of his problem and inability to grasp truth.

hahaha! What makes you think that your make believe god is real and theirs isnt? Have a good read of the old testament, much of the killings they carry out are also stated as your gods will. atleast they ACTUALLY follow the teachings of their religion (wrong or not) unlike Christians… F**king Christians always so quick to judge! You do realize if you were born in syria/iraq you would be muslim as well, right? And believe all the same bullsh*t they believe. Youre all as bad as each other, literally. ALL religion in general has done nothing but stall evolution. We should be already able to visit other life in the galaxy (which ACTUALLY does exist, youre borderline retarded for using a 2000 year old book as reason to ignore it) if it wasnt for stone age minded people like YOU and them. Wake up…

Our atheist stated without equivocation, “You do realize if you were born in syria/iraq you would be muslim as well, right? And believe all the same bullsh*t they believe.” This is actually a thoroughly incorrect statement to make. Being born in either Syria or Iraq does not guarantee that one is “born” into a Muslim household no more than anyone born in the United States is automatically born into a Christian one. There are plenty of people who were born into those nations and are not now (or were ever) a Muslim. In fact, there are plenty of examples of people who were born into Christian homes in these nations and remained Christian. Usama Dakdok is a perfect example of someone who was born in a nation in the Middle East as an Arab, was raised in Egypt, yet was raised in a Christian home.

Is our atheist saying that people who are born into Arab homes are automatically born into an Islamic household? If he’s saying that, it’s simply untrue on several counts. I don’t want to push this too far for fear of doing irreparable harm to our atheist friend who has obviously sequestered himself off from the truth that exists in this world. We are also very obviously aware of how Muslims in Egypt, Syria, Iran, Iraq, and other places in the Middle East have been attacking and killing Christians in those countries, which also tends to disprove his claims.

Another vapid atheist living in the past and misunderstanding it in order gain a point in the present.

Also note that our friend thoroughly believes alien life does exist in the galaxy though I’m quite certain he’s never been visited by any or had conversations with them. In short, he’s taking this on faith, based on hearsay and alleged anecdotal evidence from science. In essence though, there has been nothing that has proven beyond doubt that aliens exist, but our friend – though he is repulsed by the notion of any god existing – simply accepts without proof aliens existing. How this connects with the scientific mind or process is beyond me, but I’m quite sure he has rationalized it enough to believe it without issue.

His last sentence or two is nothing more than insults. If I actually valued his opinion, I might be tempted to take it to heart. However, since he shows so little in the way of intelligence, it is difficult to take him seriously. His entire tirade is merely proof of his arrogance. He is to be pitied for his lack of acceptance, his vitriolic discourse, and his complete inability to offer anything that even remotely resembles proof toward his argument.

As I’ve shown, he is wrong on so many counts, that the entirety of his comments can be tossed out like yesterday’s trash. Atheists believe themselves to be people who learn and live by the dictates of science, yet it is clear that this individual completely ignores actual science in favor of how he feels about things. Never mind that his feelings are based on errant conclusions. That doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters to our dear friend, Mr. Atheist, is that he hates religion and clearly hates those who practice it. This is surely not a reasoned approach to the issue of religion or science.

Note the image I’ve included with this article. Anthony Grayling says a number of things that are simply plain wrong. Atheists were not the only ones burned at the stake or tortured to death in other ways. This type of myopia that atheists have is standard. It’s also the norm for leftists in general, who only want to pursue their objective and because of that, prefer to pick and choose the truth they will tell.

There were many, many, Christians who were burned at the stake and tortured to death as well during things like the Inquisition. William Tyndale had the nerve to translate the Bible into English against the wishes of the “church” (Roman Catholic Church; RCC). He, along with many, many other souls lost their lives because their beliefs, their doctrine was not in keeping with the RCC. The entire Reformation began not because of an atheist, but because of a priest named Martin Luther who objected to 95 issues within the RCC. Men like Luther, Calvin, Tyndale and many others were hunted down and often tortured and/or killed.

Foxes Book of Martyrs is a tome that testifies of the inhumanity done to man by religious zealots or national leaders since the beginnings of the Christian church (Acts 2). Don’t give me your sob story, Dr. Grayling. The Emperor Nero used Christians to light his garden by crucifying them, covering them with pitch, and setting them ablaze. History is replete with example after example of how Christians and other religious people (and some atheists) were dealt with by people with whom they disagreed and were even afraid. Please, Dr. Grayling, save your pitiful excuses as if atheists were singled out and treated cruelly by the “church” and no one else was. At least try to be honest and genuine.

Atheists are an interesting breed. The most unfortunate part about many atheists is that they cannot see the forest for the trees and cannot see the full picture when it comes to religion. They are the absolute fulfillment and embodiment of the apostle Paul’s words, “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,” (Romans 1:22). I don’t mean that as an insult, but to represent fact. Most atheists believe they have come to the end of their learning in certain areas.

The truth – though difficult to accept – is that if God exists at all, surely He is far more inscrutable than we can ever give Him credit for being or He’s no God worth learning about or knowing. The reality is that in order to deny God’s existence, the atheist first has to shrink God down to the size of a microbe, then squish him under foot. This very attitude belies the fact that atheists in general are not up to the challenge of even coming close to understanding God in the slightest. It is their pride that deludes them into that form of reasoning.

Because of that, they are to be pitied and certainly prayed for in the hopes that God might open their eyes so they would at least see the truth so as to have the option of embracing it.

    Just thinkin’ here…If religion has the power to stall evolution then religion rules over evolution making evolution too weak of a philosophy to put any trust in! It becomes nothing more than fairy tales made up by a man who hated God and adored his sinful life!

      Yeah, I find that fascinating myself. It’s a bit of a hoot. Interestingly enough, the more I study foods and the changes man has made to wheat and other genetically-modified organisms (like corn to create High Fructose Corn Syrup), the more I realize that all we’ve done is make things that are damaging and/or killing us.

      I had a biology teacher who taught that with the onset of “civilization” itself, evolution was essentially “stalled” too. Interesting that it doesn’t take that much to stall evolution, does it? 🙂
