Psalm 14 or 53

Either way the atheist is a fool…

A decade ago, a group non-believers meeting publicly on a university campus like this one at Virgina Tech would have been rare, but over the last five years the number of student “freethinker” groups in the US, has begun to snowball: from 100 in 2007 their number has leapt to more than 350 today, according to the nationwide Secular Student Alliance. Their growth reflects a rapid shift in attitudes towards religion in America among young people, with one recent Pew poll finding that more than one third of Americans aged 18 to 29 now say they have “no religious affiliation”, compared with less than 10 per cent of their grandparents’ generation. While America still remains outwardly far more religious than Europe, the sudden rise of the “nones”, as they were dubbed by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, has raised the question of whether the US is on the cusp of a dramatic sea-change in attitude towards religion in public life.

Education can be a good thing….can be. Often, those who think consider themselves something more than what any of the rest of us are. We are mortals who have a proclivity to think ourselves more, better and endowed with self-righteousness.

Plainly, we are nothing. We have no rights. We have the inclination toward evil. But to talk to an atheist and convince them of such things is often futile simply because they are convinced of what they know. Were it not for the Superintending Supreme Omnipotent Being which atheists all too often indirectly focus their anger, they could not be the “freethinker” they so claim. It is God who makes us something. It is God who gives our rights. It is God who has changed the inclinations of man.

The Scriptures address atheists as fools for good reason, and anyone who is a believer must understand why. Atheists as fools are to be pitied, not scorned. There’s is a fantasy world with no basis, no grounds, no fundamental support. It is a mirage. They can not know anything without God. They can not study let alone champion science as their quintessential religion without God.

Atheists are a pitiful bunch.

About elmoshangnaster

The name's a dodge simply because 1) on the internet I can be whomever I choose, and 2) I'm just paranoid enough to keep scoundrels and government out of my business and don't care to sort 'em out from the decent folk. My blog, my opinions. Don't like 'em? Sure, kindly tell me about your far-fetched, idiotic beliefs...kindly. In the end we'll neither of us change the others mind, but I will take the time to read your arguments if they're thought out in a rational fashion and not full of hyperbole. I'm a Christian human being. It's not a flavor or color preference, it's who and what I am. Don't like it? The above considerations apply. I'm not about to waste anyone's time or mine shoving Christianity down their gullet if they demonstrate even the least resistance. When someone's ready to hear I'm only too glad to share. The Gravatar? It's Jenny Lake in the Tetons near Jackson, WY. If God had a house that's where it would be.
