While displaying ignorance in multiple areas, atheists demonstrate this deficiency frequently in their description of Biblical “contradictions.” What is a contradiction? A simple definition comes to us from Stanley Jevons’ Elementary Lessons in Logic, says: “Nothing can both be and not be” (1928, p. 117).
It's Very Good
There once was a Christian named Sal. He was a welder and generally good with tools. He built a go-cart for his son. Every evening for three weeks, Sal worked in his shop, cutting, welding, piecing together the tubular metal. Finally Sal installed the engine and steering assembly. When it was finished, Sal stepped back and looked at what he had done. He was very pleased and remarked to his atheist neighbour who’d come over to see how the project was going, “This is good. I did a good job.”
One day, about a month after getting his new toy, the boy failed to notice a wire meant to act as a guide for a fence the neighbour was building. Going full speed, Sal’s son hit the wire, slicing open his neck. He died before Sal could get him to the hospital.
At the food market several months later, Sal’s atheist neighbour heard Sal telling a friend that he was very sad he’d made the go-cart. “That’s a lie!” the atheist cried. “You told me that building that go-cart was very good.”
Was it a lie, as atheists say?
