“I value and admire intelligence, and even the smartest person turns into a complete fucking idiot when he starts talking about his religion.”
Yet another atheist shows us his basis for living. They say that atheism isn’t a belief system, that they don’t live by faith and that their’s is not a world-view. They even say there is not dogma to the atheist faith. All wrong.
So what is the object of an Atheist’s belief? Upon what object do they place their deep and abiding faith? IT is the triune god of Science, Pride and Intelligence.
This in itself is somewhat amazing since each aspect of their god is so incredibly fallible.
- Atheists place their faith in Science to provide for them answers and direction.
- Atheists place their faith in their Pride to keep them emotionally afloat.
- And atheists especially place their faith in and worship their Intelligence to provide them with a sense of security, belonging and value.
The Atheist belief system and the god of Science:
Sadly, the so called “Science” that atheists hold so dear in their belief system doesn’t even resemble the science they claim it to be. In fact, regarding origins of life and origins of the universe, atheistic science does exactly the opposite of how science is supposed to operate. Instead of observing evidence and then coming to a conclusion or interpretation through repeated testing and verification, atheistic science begins with a conclusion (God does not exist) and then goes in search of evidence that will support their presupposition. In fact, regarding origins, the atheist scientist’s search for acceptable answers has descended into multiple origins of the universe mythologies to explain how we are here today.
Atheists place their faith in a presupposition that is absolutely baseless, ie. There is no God, therefore life came from non life. Atheists then back that up with a self contradicting statement that matter created itself. No less absurd, atheists posit that DNA / RNA was simply “found” in the first living cell. In this, atheists place their faith. On this chunk of sand atheists build their philosophy of life.
According to atheists, all intelligent life originated from totally inanimate and inorganic chemicals. Because of this, the importance of positive, life enhancing mutations can hardly be overemphasized. Yet those are so rare as to be non existent. Julian Huxley wrote “. . . not only is it [mutations] an effective agency of evolution, it is the only effective agency of evolution.” Theodosius Dobzhansky, an evolutionary biologist stated, “The deleterious character of most mutations seems to be a very serious difficulty [with this theory].” If evolution, as it is currently promoted is correct, then positive mutations had to have occurred trillions of times in many different species! This is the theory that makes Richard Dawkins feel intellectually fulfilled. In this, atheists place their faith. On this chunk of sand atheists build their philosophy of life.
The Atheist belief system and the god of Pride:
The pride that atheists hold so dear in their belief system is derived from many things, any one of which can be ripped away in the blink of an eye. This includes, attractiveness, wealth, possessions, power, relationships and of course intelligence and education. Atheists state that God does not exist but that we can simply attribute worth to ourselves. That is a nice thought but it doesn’t work. For if you say that you have one unit of worth and your neighbour says that you have no worth, in a secular world your neighbour is just as correct as you are. In a secular world, worth is nothing more than an arbitrary attribute. In a secular world, people feel forced to follow the ebb and flow of human standards of worth within a whimsical and convoluted environment. This is where atheists are forced to place their faith because outside of their selves, there is nothing that can attribute worth to them. In this, atheists place their faith. On this chunk of sand atheists build their philosophy of life.
The Atheist belief system and the god of Intelligence:
Atheists trust in intelligence. They glorify it and sing its praises. Atheists derive their sense of worth from their intelligence and judge the worth of others by the degree of intelligence they deem the other person to have. Read any of their blogs and you’ll see that the atheist’s sense of belonging arises from grouping together and talking about the lack of intelligence in Christians. Here’s just a few description of me, according to atheists.
"Sux big time to be you. Moron."
"Get an education. You are pathetic."
"Predictably you won't educate yourself as you are an obvious willfully ignorant yo yo,"
"I won't even engage your pathetic lack of understanding. You are just sad."
"If the secular explanation for morals is incoherent to you, you just aren't very bright."
Any casual observer of human behaviour can plainly see that intelligence fails dismally in protecting anyone from the perils of faulty decisions, especially as they arise in relationships. For example:
. The intelligence in which atheists place their faith is the same intelligence that allows men and women to rationalise abandoning their children and spouses in order to pursue affairs with other individuals.
. This is the same intelligence that produces more divorces the higher one’s education.
. This is the same intelligence that produces more alcohol consumption the higher one’s education.
. This is the same intelligence that leads a person to say, The living organism within my womb that I’m aborting is not a human being. In fact, even when the child’s head has exited my vagina and its brain is being sucked out of its head, this is still not a human being. My right to freedom is more important than another person’s right to life.
. This is the same intelligence that leads a person to say, divorce is actually good for the kids.
. This is the same intelligence that leads a person to say, It’s ok to steal millions of dollars from other people’s pension plans.
. This is the same intelligence that thinks pornography doesn’t hurt anyone; that in fact pornography should be a protected form of expression.
. This is the same intelligence that believes that what we watch, read, listen to or think about might influence others, but it won’t influence me.
. This is the same intelligence that says we can have an effect (the universe) with no cause.
. This is the same intelligence that says that matter and energy can create itself.
. This is the same intelligence that sees this logical contradiction as acceptable, as long as it keeps a Creator God out of the picture.
In this, atheists place their faith. On this chunk of sand atheists build their philosophy of life.
. This is the same intelligence that says that a cosmos that reveals purpose, order and design points to an accidental origin with no external cause.
. This is the same intelligence that points to moral, intelligent, living beings and thinks it rational to say they are the product of an accident with no evidence of design.
. This is the same intelligence that says all humans have an idea of a most perfect being because there is no such thing.
. Atheist intelligence is the kind that rejects any book that challenges their faith by claiming “It’s only written by humans.” Then, this same intelligence turns around and vehemently supports its beliefs by quoting from books written by, yes of course, humans.
. This is an intelligence that supports ethical and moral codes established by community and social norms. This, even though those same community and social norms have been in the past, and are today responsible for the most horrendous abuse we could ever imagine of humans, animals and the world itself.
. This is the intelligence that will spend years and years and years debating which is an easier definition to defend, “Atheists don’t believe in God,” or “Atheists are non believers in God.”
. This is the same intelligence that refuses to acknowledge that atheists are in fact suppressing an innate knowledge of God.
. This is the same intelligence that says, I don’t have to have a reason for what I believe. It’s you (the Christian) who has to give reasons for what you believe. And then, and THEN they believe that comment gets them off the hook! One Atheist even went so far as to say to me, “I’m right because I say so.”
This then is the triune god of Science, Pride and Intelligence in which atheists place their faith. This is the chunk of sand upon which they build their philosophy of life.
“The basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! So nobody has a good excuse for denying the existence of God. People know God perfectly well, but when they don’t treat Him like God, refusing to worship Him, they trivialize themselves into silliness and confusion so that there is neither sense nor direction left in their lives. They pretend to know it all, but are illiterate regarding life and how to live it.” (Romans 1:18-23 - The Msg.).
