I turn to Atheism. I deal with this briefly before, but let me restart so I can abolish it more completely. At the bottom, i’ll list some articles I’ve done before, so you can catch up on what I’ve written before.
Atheism is a religion that claims there is no God. The fact they’ve started organizing Atheism Churches is very simply a subconscious acknowledging of this fact.
Don’t like that? Too late now. Should have thought that one through before someone was stupid enough to invent an Atheist church.
Atheism in many ways is a foolish and self refuting religion. It boldly states, “There is no God!”
How do you know? Christians demonstrate the foolishness of this false religion all the time by asking the atheist to pretend that he has 50% of all knowledge in the Universe. The smart ones usually respond that such a thing is impossible. We then ask, then is it possible that lacking 50% or more knowledge of the Universe, that God can exist in the parts of the Universe you have no knowledge of?
They usually change the question.
A smart Atheist may find themselves wondering why I could possibly believe in a God? Well, I didn’t always. I was dead set against the idea in my 20’s. Why? Because I wanted to do what I wanted to do, and the idea of a God who will someday judge all mankind interfered with that.
There was a subconscious acknowledgement of several factors in that thought process.
- There is an absolute moral standard in the Universe.
- There is something greater than myself
- That something set up those absolute moral standards.
- That Something greater who has set up moral standards will someday judge me according to those standards.
- I didn’t like that.
So, as a result, I denied the existence of a God. If I pretend it’s not there, I’m not threatened by it! Yay! I can do what I want! I’m eating a bag of Doritos for dinner TONIGHT!!!
Using Newtonian physics, we recognize these are scientific laws.
- If the Universe exists, it either has always been there, or it has been created.
- If it was created, it had a creation.
- If it had a creation, it had a creator.
We were going good until the last point. At that point, my mind rebelled. After all, I wanted to live my sinful lifestyle!
It took faith in God to open my eyes. ONCE I believed, ONCE I exhibited faith in my God, I could suddenly see all the evidence for God had been there the WHOLE TIME. And once you get saved, you’ll see it too. absolutely guaranteed.
To reinforce the conflict I had between what I wanted and what truly was, I turned to ANYTHING that would reinforce my desire to live a sinful lifestyle. I had a strong belief in Evolution – after all, they taught it in schools, so it HAD to be true! There’s so much scientific proof!
Ray Comfort could have literally eaten me alive in a debate, and yet… at the time I prided myself in Occam’s Razor, thinking it must SURELY answer the whole God thing once and for all. Why?
Because that’s what Arthur C. Clarke kept writing in his science fiction novels. Like many other atheists, I grew up on Arthur C. Clarke, Robert A. Heinlein, Isaac Aasimov, Star Trek and Star Wars. The first Star Wars came out when I was 13.
I never stopped to investigate facts. If I had, I probably would have gotten saved YEARS ago.
There were several factors that I was unaware of. Such as – absolutely no proof whatsoever of Evolution. A single simple mathematical formula I was unaware of. Robert Heinlein was a Freemason, and worshipped a pantheistic deity by his own admission (solipsism, the belief we all are gods, and pantheism, the belief that there are gods in everything combined formed his religion. He did not put the complete theory on paper until his book Stranger in A Strange Land). Arthur C. Clarke was a Buddhist, and believed in reincarnation. Isaac Aasimov alone was an atheist. Star Trek advocated an Atheist worldview, not because it’s a truth, but rather, because it was an agenda of the very science fiction writers that wrote scripts for it.
So, with all this weighty stuff, surely there must be some truth to the Atheist position?
Nope. Smoke and mirrors. We’ve already demonstrated that my thought process had a conflict, a subconscious recognition of the fact that our very thoughts and morals are based upon a recognition of a supreme being, a creator.
The very fact there is a creation shows me there is a creator. Newton dealt with that in the 18th century. If I see something moving, I recognize that a force or energy was applied to that something to make it move. The very recognition of this as a law of science shows me that if there is a creation, there is a creator.
“Well, the Universe created itself! There’s tons of proof for this! The Hubble showed us that!”
No, actually. That’s three objections in one, so let me deal with them one at a time.
The “Big Bang” theory was posited by George LeMaitre in 1927, and popularized by George Gamow in 1948. Gamow, R. Herman, and R. A. Alpher created mathematical models that posited that it was feasible. So let’s examine it briefly.
The Big Bang theory proposes that all of the matter in the universe was compressed into a tiny dot. They always use the words “Smaller than a period on this page.” Why? That way you visualize it. It’s the size of the period on this page right? No, they said “Smaller” but everyone ends up looking at the period at the end of the sentence and visualizes this “.” They should be seeing this “?”
All that matter could no longer compress itself and then BOOM! Exploded. Right?
“You simplified it, but yes.”
The only thing that just exploded was your theory. Where did all the matter come from?
“from the Big Bang!”
Um… no. I’m not reaching you. Your theory says nothing existed, that “Nothing” compressed into a tiny place, and then blew up, right? I may have trouble going to sleep tonight, because I’m picturing that if “Nothing” exploded and created everything, then it may well do it while I’m asleep tonight!
“Nothing to worry about. Everything’s already been created.”
Okay, the conflict hasn’t popped in your head yet.
NOTHING compressed itself, and exploded, creating EVERYTHING. So Nothing + Nothing = Everything. The theory assumes that mass and the universal laws existed. In Algebra, they taught me as long as I have two bits, I can deduce the third. In this case, you have A+B=C.
So, what’s B?
“I can’t tell from that?”
Okay, then I need to know A and C.”
Right. you just disproved the Big Bang. “Nothing” cannot compress and explode, and create “Everything”. There’s universal laws, the first and second laws of thermodynamics, the law of Angular Momentum, Boyle’s Law. Where did they come from? We go no further until you answer that.
“They just are.”
Oh, I see. You try to reduce God using the same logic, but when it’s applied to your god – notice I have avoided capitalizing the word universe? – you balk. There’s no reason why we have universal laws. Science Fiction writers love positing the concept of universes that do not have the same laws, right? You’re familiar with that concept. So – why does our universe have these laws? Because they work? No, the laws exist because they were made that way, to work with the very items the universe is created of.
If we did not have protons, would the laws of nature work? No. By that very concept, we identify that the kinds of materials the universe is made of are DESIGNED to cooperate with the very laws that were put in place.
Wow, Science isn’t doing very good, and we just started this!
Next math formula. This is it for the math, by the way.
The very math formula that creates the number line. Anything we reduce to nothing equals one. Huh? Scientifically, it should reduce to 0. Right? Apparently not. Because the universe is a creation, and a creation demands a creator.
Stay tuned. I’m just getting started here.
