Arrogant Atheists Again

The militant atheist wants nothing more than to spoil the believer's spiritual journey.
That's both meanspirited and radically unenlightened.
— S.E. Cupp

Buona sera. It's late, I'm tired and going to make this fast and dirty. A buddy from far away send me this link to an article by atheist S.E. Cupp on the arrogance of atheists. I thought it was interesting and wanted to share it.

Harsh Realities about Abortion

There are some intense images and strong pro-life feelings here, and I hope my pro-life friends will take a look and join the discussion in the comments area. Warning: Link goes to graphic images. Brace yourselves! I agree with the author, Rhomphaia (sometimes I call her Miss Sword) that these are not just an appeal for an emotional response, but rather, are evidence. This is worth getting into, especially since B. Hussein Obama has had his EEOC nominee confirmed, a pro-death abortion activist.

Comments on this post are disabled. I'm trying to encourage you to go to that first link.

Evil God of the Old Testament

Buona sera. My father was a pastor. He was not very fond of enthusiastic people forming Bible study groups without some form of leadership or guidance. His response was, "A pooling of ignorance". I saw later that it was true to some extent. When you have people sharing thoughts but nobody has studied the subject or had a study guide, people can arrive at completely wrong ideas through a type of democratic process. (I am not advocating the other extreme, that you cannot understand anything without approved leadership, otherwise we should all become Mormons or Jehovah's Witnesses and be told what to think.) Some degree of knowledgeable leadership can help.

The same pooling of ignorance happens in atheist circles. Recently, I have been reminded of the "Old Testament God is evil" mindset. How did they get their ideas? Certainly not through researching or consulting experts, which would be imperative with such a serious claim. Referring to Richard "Daffy" Dawkins, a bad philosopher who is "woefully ill-suited for engaging in real philosophy beyond preaching to an atheist pep rally" won't help. The atheist philosophers seem to be more of a "me, too!" crowd, agreeing with each other's mockery and indulging in self-congratulations.

So, if there are readers who actually want to learn something (and do not have their minds already made up, evidence not withstanding), I have some things that intellectually honest people should examine. They are not huge amounts of reading, I do not want to scare you off with too much material. But if you really want to know the truth about the straw man argument that "the Old Testament God is evil", you should look at them, capice?

No, I do not fully endorse everything in each article. I respect people enough to at least be able to get something useful from them, however. Those ought to hold you for a while.

Does Atheism Cause Brain Damage?

For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks,
but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing to be wise, they became fools...
Therefore God gave them over...
— Paul the Apostle

Buon giorno. I hope you had a splendid Christmas.

As I had hoped (and promised later, in some instances) the CARM radio show podcast of "Faith and Reason" was released. My discussion with Rev. Matt Slick is below. We discussed if the moral deterioration of blasphemous atheists also leads to brain damage. Also, we talked about Norman (my pet troll), how modern Internet atheists are similar to Muslims, how they are vitriolic and conniving, dishonest, obstreperous, irrational, about Christians being "haters", and more. The talk (well, he talked and I listened, mostly) is about eight minutes long.

If you read Romans chapter 1, count the number of times that it says, "God gave them over". You want to blaspheme God? OK. He will not fight with you forever.

Addendum: The cowardly Twitter trolls' responses (ie, attacks), the answer to my question appears to be "YES!" These lovers of "reason" and "logic" were posting, in essence, "You're a doo doo head!" and putting words in my mouth. (No, I did not say that infants or animals are born Christian.) People are desperate to mock instead of make an intelligent response. Addendum 2: It may be the other way around, autism influence atheism!
