Topic: ATTN: ATHEIST, AGNOSTICS, ETC
    Posted: 01 Nov 2006 at 12:44pm
 DOES GOD REALLY EXIST FOR REAL?
 
HERE’S A VALID ARGUMENT YOU CAN’T OPPOSE!
HERE’S A
LOGICAL ARGUMENT FOR PEOPLE WHO SAY THEY ARE ATHEIST BUT AREN’T ABLE TO ANSWER THESE LOGICAL QUESTIONS. IN THE END, AT THEIR OWN ADMISSION, THEY’LL CONFESS THAT THERE IS A GOD.
 
ATHEIST SAY THAT GOD IS NOT…BUT THE TRUE QUESTION IS, DO ATHEISTS KNOW FOR CERTAINTY GOD DOES NOT EXIST? THIS QUESTION HAS CAPTIVATED THINKERS AND PHILOSPHERS A LIKE. AND NEITHER ONE NOR THE OTHER CAN PRODUCE GOD IN THEIR LABORATORY TEST TUBES, CAN THEY? IT’S ALL ABOUT FAITH. WHY? BECAUSE WHICHEVER WAY THEY CHOOSE, BELIEF IS THEIR ONLY VIABLE WAY.
 
IT’S CALLED THE QUANTUM LEAP OF FAITH… LEAVE GOD AND THE BIBLE OUT OF IT. HERE ARE SOME PHILOSOPHICAL QUESTIONS I WANT TO ASK YOU ATHEISTS OUT IN CYBERSPACE AND IN CHATROOMS.
 
1: OF ALL THE KNOWLEDGE IN THE WORLD, HOW MUCH PERCENT DO YOU POSSESS? DO YOU KNOW 80% OF ALL THERE IS TO KNOW?
 
2: COULD YOU NAME IN ORDER THE SEVENTEEN EMPERORS OF CHINA’S MING DYNASTY?
 
3: IN THE SEVENTH CENTURY A.D. IN SAUDI ARABIA, COULD YOU LIST 15 CALIPHS OF THAT ERA ALONG WITH THEIR WIVES?
 
4: THERE ARE 1,500 LANGUAGES IN THE WORLD. OUT OF THAT NUMBER, HOW MANY DO YOU SPEAK? DO YOU OR ANYONE SPEAK 1,300 OF THEM?
 
5: IF YOU HAD TO TAKE A TEST GIVEN BY A LEADING ASTROPHYSICIST, HOW MUCH WOULD YOU KNOW?
 
6: CAN YOU RECITE ALL THE CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS IN ORDER WITHOUT LOOKING IN YOUR NOTES?
 
7:OF ALL THE PRINTED BOOKS ON KNOWLEDGE JUST FOR THIS YEAR, HOW MANY HAVE YOU READ?
 
SO, FROM AN INTELLECTUAL STANDPOINT, DO YOU KNOW 50% OF ALL THERE IS TO KNOW? NOW BY YOUR OWN ADMISSION, YOU DON’T KNOW 50% OF WHAT THERE IS TO KNOW, DO YOU? IF YOU SHAKE YOUR HEAD AS IF TO SAY YOU DON’T, HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY BE CERTAIN THAT GOD ISN’T OVER IN THE 50% OF KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU DON’T POSSESS? ACKNOWLEDGING THESE FACTS, THEN YOU ARE NOT AN ATHEIST. WHY? BECAUSE AN ATHEIST SAYS, I KNOW FOR CERTAIN THAT GOD DOESN’T EXIST.
 
WHAT YOU ARE SAYING NOW IS THAT HE [GOD] MAY EXIST IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU DON’T POSSESS, CORRECT?
 
NOW YOU HAVE ONE OF TWO CHOICES. PASCAL WAGER, THE FRENCH PHILOSOPHER SAID, PEOPLE “BELIEVING” IN HIM TRULY WOULDN’T HAVE LOST ANYTHING. AFTER 70 OR 80 YEARS MINGLED WITH JOYS AND SORROWS, CHRISTIANS AND ATHEISTS ALIKE WOULD LIE IN A COLD DARK GRAVE FOR A LONG TIME.
 
BUT ON THE OTHER HAND, IF GOD DOES EXIST, AND IF BELIEVING AND TRUSTING IN HIM FOR SALVATION MEANS AN ETERNITY IN GOD’S GLORIOUS KINGDOM, THEN THE PERSON WHO DOESN’T CHOOSE TO BELIEVE HAS LOST LITERALLY EVERYTHING—WHILE THE CHRISTIAN’S TRUE EXISTENCE WOULD ONLY HAVE JUST BEGUN! SO I ASK YOU UNIVERSITY MINDS, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE? WOULD YOU CHOOSE THE DESOLATION OF ATHEISM OR THE JOY OF BEING WITH GOD WHO DESIGNED YOU AND I?
 
THERE’S A QUOTE THAT SAYS, “MAN DOES BETTER IF HE ACTS AS THOUGH GOD IS THERE.” MOREOVER, LISTEN TO WHAT VOLTAIRE SAID, “IF GOD DID NOT EXIST, IT WOULD BE NECESSARY TO INVENT HIM.” WHY WOULD VOLTAIRE MAKE SUCH A STATEMENT? BECAUSE DEEP WITHIN THE HUMAN HEART THERE’S MORE TO LIFE THAN JUST MERELY SURVIVING AND DYING.
 
IN BIOLOGY 101, IT SAYS, “LIFE BEGETS LIFE, BUT NON-LIVING THINGS DO NOT PRODUCE LIVING THINGS.” YET THE EVOLUTIONIST COUNTERS THAT BY SAYING, GIVEN EONS OF YEARS, IT WILL HAPPEN! YOU KNOW WHAT? I’D BE AN ATHEIST TOO, BUT I HAVEN’T MUSTER THE FAITH TO BE ONE. I GO BY FAITH AND NOT LOGIC! IN THEIR BOOK, “HOW NOW SHALL WE LIVE?” CHUCK COLSON AND NANCY PEARCEY SAID, “LIFE-BY-CHANCE” AT ONE TEN TO THE FIFTIETH POWER.
 
IN ADDITION, THEY SAY, “MOST MUTATIONS ARE HARMFUL, OFTEN LETHAL TO THE ORGANISM” THEY WRITE. “SO THAT IF MUTATIONS WERE TO ACCUMULATE, THE RESULT WOULD MORE LIKELY BE DEVOLUTION THAN EVOLUTION.” (p.85).
 
SO I ASK YOU THIS QUESTION, WHERE CAN YOU POINT TO MUTATIONS IN HUMAN EXPERIENCE? SCIENTIST CONCLUDES THAT HUMANS CAME FROM APES. BUT LET ME ASK THIS QUESTION. IF FISHES EVOLVE LUNGS, WHAT WOULD HAPPEN NEXT? WOULD IT DIE OR MOVE UP THE EVOLUTIONARY LADDER? I THINK IT WOULD DROWN!
 
WOULDN’T YOU HAVE A HARD TIME BELIEVING THAT A MOUSETRAP WOULD TAKE ONE MILLION YEARS BEFORE IT BEGIN EVOLVING PIECE BY PIECE? FIRST, YOU HAVE THE BOX; THEN YOU HAVE A WOODEN PLATFORM. A MILLION YEARS LATER, THEN THE TRIP HAMMER COMES AFTER ANOTHER THOUSAND YEARS. BUILDING A MOUSETRAP FOR THE SIMPLE FACT OF CATCHING A MOUSE TODAY WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE, IF THE PARTS OF THE MOUSETRAP ARE TO SHOW-UP EVERY MILLION YEARS, WOULDN’T IT?
 
HERE’S THE POINT…- IF THERE IS A DESIGN, THERE MUST BE A DESIGNER, WHO? IF THERE IS CREATION, THERE MUST BE A CREATOR, WHO? THE GREAT CONCERN ISN’T WHAT WE MIGHT SEE OR NOT SEE IN A GLEAMING, WELL-FUNDED LABORATORY OR DISCOVER UNDER THE MICROSCOPE. THE ISSUE IS THE VOID IN A PERSONS HEART FOR THE NEED OF GOD. WHEN PEOPLE STOP BELIEVING IN GOD, THEY BELIEVE IN ANYTHING.
 
THEY GO OUT HUGGING TREES, THEY BELIEVE THAT MAN IS GOD AND THEY BELIEVE THAT NATURE IS GOD. LISTEN TO C.S. LEWIS IN HIS BOOK, “MERE CHRISTIANITY”. HE WRITES, “PEOPLE EVERYWHERE HAVE A SENSE OF RIGHT AND WRONG. WHEN TORN BETWEEN TWO INSTINCTS, THEY USUALLY KNOW WITHIN THEIR SOULS THAT ONE OF THEM IS MORE CORRECT THAN THE OTHER. THERE’S SOMETHING “ABOVE” US ALL, A KIND OF REAL MORALITY, AND OUR STANDARDS EITHER CONFORM TO IT OR FAIL TO.”
 
LEWIS SAYS THIS, “GRAVITY MAKES STONES FALL AND THE EARTH ROTATES AROUND THE SUN. IN SUCH CASE, “LAW” IS SIMPLY WHAT WE CAN SEE ACTUALLY HAPPENING.” IN FACT, WHEN AN ATHEIST CRIES OUT ABOUT THE SENSELESS UNFAIRNESS OF THE WORLD, HE GIVES HIMSELF AWAY. IF THE ACTS OF HUMANS ARE SO UNJUST, THEN WHERE HAS ATHEIST GOT SUCH AN IDEA OF PEOPLE BEING JUST OR UNJUST? QUESTION: DOES A MAN CALL A LINE CROOKED UNLESS HE HAS SOME IDEA OF WHAT IS A STRAIGHT LINE? WHAT IS HE COMPARING IT TOO THEN? IF THE WHOLE WORLD IS A MESS, THEN WHY DOES AN ATHEIST FIND HIMSELF IN SUCH A VIOLENT REACTION TO IT? ATHEISM LIVES ONE MORALLY BARREN, NO HOPE, AND NO FUTURE.
 
SO NOW YOU MUST ASK YOURSELVES, IS CHRISTIANITY THE MOST VIABLE OPTION? YES! IN MERE CHRISTIANITY, LEWIS WRITES, “MEN HAVE ALWAYS TRIED VAINLY TO FIND HAPPINESS OUTSIDE OF GOD, APART FROM HIM. “AND OUT OF THAT HOPELESS ATTEMPT HAS COME NEARLY ALL THAT WE CALL HUMAN HISTORY—MONEY, POVERTY, AMBITION, WAR, PROSTITUTION, CLASSES, EMPIRES, SLAVERY—THE LONG TERRIBLE STORY OF MAN TRYING TO FIND SOMETHING OTHER THAN GOD WHICH WILL MAKE HIM HAPPY.THE REASON WHY IT CAN NEVER SUCCEED IS THIS. A CAR IS MADE TO RUN ON GASOLINE, AND IT WOULD NOT RUN PROPERLY ON ANYTHING ELSE. NOW GOD DESIGN THE HUMAN MACHINE TO RUN ON HIMSELF.” (MERE CHRISTIANITY, p. 53, 54). HENCE, ANY OTHER “ISMS” WON’T WORK.
 
IN THEIR PERSONAL GETHSEMANE, A COUPLE GRIEVES WHEN THEIR BABY IS BORN DEAD. GOD DIDN’T EXIST! HOW COULD HE DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT TO US? I UNDERTSND THE FRUSTRATION AND LONLINESS THAT ELIE WIESEL ENDURED FACING THE HORRORS OF THE HOLOCAUST. HE SAID IN BITTERNESS, “WHY DOESN’T GOD RESIGN AND LET SOMEONE MORE COMPETENT TAKE HIS PLACE? WHAT THESE PEOPLE NEED IS NOT EVIDENCE THAT GOD EXIST BUT AN EXPERIENCE OF HIM IN THEIR LIVES AND HEARTS.
 
ATHEIST AND EVOLUTIONIST ARE MAD BECAUSE THEY CAN’T PUT GOD IN A TEST TUBE AND ANALYZE HIS DNA. JUST AS WE CAN’T MEASURE IN A LABORATORY VIAL HOW MUCH WE LOVE OUR WIVES, HOW MUCH TIME WE SPEND WITH THEM, HOW WE SPEAK TO THEM AND TREAT THEM, CAN WE? THOUGH MATTER HOW HARD THEY TRY, THEY CAN’T FIT GOD INTO A GENE BOTTLE. BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN WE WON’T HAVE EVIDENCE. NO!
 
ROMANS 1:20 SAYS, “ FOR SINCE THE CREATON OF THE WORLD HIS INVISIBLE ATTRIBUTES ARE CLEARLY SEEN, BEING UNDERSTOOD BY THE THINGS THAT ARE MADE, EVEN HIS ETERNAL POWER AND GODHEAD, SO THAT THEY ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE.” BEYOND THE SHADOW OF A DOUBT, WE ARE MORE THAN JUST CARBON-BASED LIFE FORMS.
 
SO IF GOD DOES NOT EXIST IN HALF OF THE KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU PROFESS BUT NOT POSSESS, THEN YOU’RE NOT AN ATHEIST. YOU ARE AN AGNOSTIC OR A DOUBTER. MY ADVICE TO YOU IS TO BE AN HONEST ONE. WHY? ARE YOU WILLING TO LOOK AT THE EVIDENCE? IT’S FOR THE SAME REASON THAT MOST THIEVES NEVER FIND A POLICEMAN, WHY? BECAUSE THEY DON’T GO LOOKING FOR ONE WHEN STEALING THINGS THAT DON’T BELONG TO THEM, DO THEY?
 
MAYBE YOU HAVE HAD YOU SHARE OF DISAPPOINTMENTS AND SO-CALLED CHRISTIANS HAVE LET YOU DOWN. BUT TAKE A LOOK WITHIN YOURSELF AND ASK THIS QUESTION, WHY IS IT THAT I HAVE SUCH A YEARNING OR ACHE IN MY HEART TO GOD EXIST? IT’S BECAUSE YOU WERE BORN WITH ETERNITY IN YOUR HEART! THERE’S A PART OF YOU THAT LONG TO REACH OUT FOR GOD’S HAND AND FIND THAT HE REALLY IS STILL THERE. THAT’S WHY YOU HAVE DECIDED TO MAKE ONE MORE SEARCH AND STOP TO READ WHAT I HAVE WRITTEN.
