Atheist Denial

Atheists, like Ditchens and the anti Semite, Iran’s President can examine evidence, enough evidence to lead most reasonable person to accept historical events as true. Yet these same atheists and anti Semites (some are in both camps) hold to a denial of these events based, not on counter evidence but on a need to preserve their dearly held world-view.

Atheists will often respond to a statement like this with a list of all the photo and written evidence of the holocaust as though that means anything.

My whole point is that when a human being doesn’t want to believe in the historical Jesus or the attempted elimination of the Jews, evidence plays a minuscule role in making that decision.

Another parallel is how the Jews asked for the holocaust and how athiests ask for Hell.

I once read that the typical atheist decides there is no God in their late teens or very early 20's and then spend the rest of their lives trying to rationalize a decision made without the benefit of years of non-biased study. It doesnt make sense. My opinions have changed on several important items since I was in my early 20's. Why not openly examine evidence?

JD, I guess I'm atypical. I was almost cracking 40 by the time I realized Christianity was the biggest cock and bull story since the Canaanite Pantheon.

Man, Makarios and Marcus are two hate-filled people.

the benefit of years of non-biased study...

If the study was non-biased there would be no Christians.

Some atheists also feel there was somebody named Jesus,they feel evidence suggests a religious leader named jesus maybe probily existed.

They dont feel there is evidence for miracles,or believe in vigin births etc though.Or talking snakes and things like that.

Believing jesus most likely existed many years ago,or folks in the distant future believing most likely Benny Hinn existed too.

Does not prove the existence of god does it?.

Is Benny Hinn saying he's God? It wouldn't surprise me but . . .

Hi Mak ...I was more talking about evidence in history that points to the likelyhood of certain peoples likelyhood of honestly having existed at some stage on the earth.

Still doesnt prove the existence of god/s or that everything written within religious ministry etc is all honest amd factual and true.

Using Benny Hinn was only to suggest somebody to compare and try to show how the history of stories of certain people can linger on many years after their death.And even chop and change or be added to.

For example it may well be that in time to come long long after the death of Benny Hinn the amazing stories of his supposed miracles will still be around and will be passed on.And some stories/tales may even get retold in future as being bigger and better as time goes by.

Not so unlike how rumors start around neighbourhoods and towns etc,and next moment the story being told is totally different to what actually happened.

But yeah im sure the many Benny Hinns of this world, sure reap as much fame money and power as they think they can get away with.

Yes and scholars will be able to tell that's exactly what happened. That's how they also know that this did not happen in the case of Jesus of Nazareh.

Well each to his/her own opinion!,with that i always do agree.Its only right! folks should decide for themselves in the end.

But in my opinion i cant see how they can be sure to know all the actual truth of what happens with all people and all the many the stories that often surrounds people.
For instance.How will they ever properly and honestly actually work out and decide which miracles associated with the tale of the Benny Hinns of this world, are real and which ones are false? ..Or which ones are only half truths etc?.Its almost impossible to be very sure.

History can record many things,but recoring them doesnt prove them all to be absolutely true and sometimes it doesnt even prove if there is even any truth at all.Many many false things in history, have been wrongly reported as truths!.

If Benny Hinn was the miracle healer he is suggested to be,surely by now science and medics worldwide would be pushing that he becomes used to heal people and save money and lives.

Yet this doesnt stop "storys" of his so called miracle being told and even recorded in books and believed by many....No it doesnt at all.It dont stop folks from believing his false miracles either !...They still follow him like all guru followers so very very often do...People will believe certain things if they wish to,no matter how much information is around that suggests it is really wrong.

And its unlikely to have stopped other false things from being recorded in history either.Not even storys surrounding Jesus of Nazareh.

For that to ever be likely,it would taken humans to actually have become totally "inhuman".
