Atheism is this for you?
Atheism is, in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of deities. In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the
position that there are no deities. Most inclusively, atheism is the absence of belief that any deities exist.
- Truth is most often used to mean in accord with fact or reality, or fidelity to an original or to a standard or ideal. The commonly
understood opposite of truth is falsehood, which, correspondingly, can also take on a logical, factual, or ethical meaning. The concept of truth is
discussed and debated in several contexts, including philosophy and religion. Many human activities depend upon the concept, which is assumed rather
than a subject of discussion, including science, law, and everyday life.
Without getting into a debate about what is truth and all of its various definitions, for all debate purposes the above definition should suffice.
So truth and falsehoods (lies) deals with an idea and how that idea is defined. Truth can also be applied to falsehoods.
No one walking on this planet can prove the existence or non-existence of any deity.
No one on earth can prove there is a heaven or a hell.
So what does it all add up to? The person or group with the best rhetoric speaker? Yes. The educated person with a classical rhetoric style (the art
of persuasion) in able to convince his/her audience that what he states is truth. It is up to the listener and what he/she accepts as the truth.
1. So if I take 90% facts from science and add my 10% of my idea or theory into the mix, does this make it truth?
2. What is I take 90% facts from science and add 10% of lies mixes within it, does this make it truth?
What is the difference in the two above statements? Of course, the speaker’s intent of the message.
Would his statement’s be one sided? Of course they would be – he wants to show his audience his point of view, especially if he wants people to
change they way they think.
Atheism is not a new word or something new to the world but is it not strange that in the time we have been on this rock for thousands of years that
atheism has not been “preached” or written about like it has been in the last thirty to forty years.
We have freedom of speech and press as well as other countries for hundreds of years and finding published books, scrolls, or rocks on atheism dating
back one hundred years, five hundred years, or a thousand years ago and even later are nowhere to be found. So what happened did their teachings die
off and disappear until recently?
Are you saying the entire world was religious? Tribes around the world who have never laid eyes on other cultures and education systems were found
worshipping a diety. How can that be?
Today atheism is well received throughout most of the western world. As Christian preach the gospel (and many do a horrific job) so do atheist. They
attempt to preach the words of their leader…. HITCHINS or DAWKINS …etc….
Personally I think only people with proper higher level education credentials i.e. Phd or Masters degree in divinity/religion …… from accredited
universities should only be allowed to disseminate this type of religious or atheistic teachings inside a building.
I am a devout Christian and I love my God but I can understand an atheist remarks about religion when he walks past someone holding a hateful sign or
some religious fanatic screaming at the tops of their lungs! Often I hear other Christians attempting to preach the gospel and I just want to “smack
them in the mouth”! Often these wannabes do more damage than good but is this a reason to write off God? A lot of bad apples so no longer eat an
One of the most famous atheist, Christopher HITCHINS has published numerous books about atheism.
I have watched all of his you-tube presentations and to those out there who say he has won most of his debates, you need to take another look at them.
Some of the debaters were not prepared to debate Mr. HITCHINS and this does not make Mr. HITCHINS statement anymore true simply because the another
person was not prepared or is educated enough to give a proper response.
HITCHINS is known for his vulgar and hateful responses. Listen to his debates and hear him curse and belittle the other debater. His hate for all
religions is well known. He uses logic to show that God does not exist and if that is not enough he insults God as a sick and poor father.
SEE debate – HITCHINS vs. Professor D’SOUZA. Both men debating using the same ground rules.
BTW - More than on one occasion HITCHINS clearly loses the debate.
HITCHINS does not believe the universe was created by a supreme being.
HITCHINS does not believe in a supreme being.
HITCHINS does not believe in any God.
HITCHINS a known socialist lost his mother to suicide in 1973. She committed suicide in Athens along with her religious boyfriend. Clearly his
mother's death was a shock and very painful to him. After he was fired from his journalist job, this changed the way he thought about everything.
According to WIKIPEDIA HITCHINS left Oxford with a "third class degree" who later hooked up with some hard core left wing radicals and started
preaching hate and rebellion in his newspaper articles and at times being very rude with vulgar language. Soon his hate turned towards religion. It
appears the death of his mother with a religious boyfriend even though she was still married supports his beliefs there is no God. Clearly HITCHINS
blames God for his mother's death and he spends the rest of his life attempting to prove there is no God and if there is one this God is hateful
towards people of this planet.
HITCHINS has been fighting throat cancer since he was in his fifties. He has been writing books and teaching around the world his hateful agenda. His
numerous lectures against all religion and God has become a face for those who are disbelievers. Then in the prime of his "success" he comes down with
throat cancer. NOT lung cancer (he was a strong smoker) but throat cancer. Which stopped him from speaking out??? Is this a coincidence? I do not
believe in coincidences.
God is abundant with patience hoping all will open their heart and let him. He lets the sunshine fall on "the just" and "the unjust". He lets the rain
fall on those who are righteous and unrighteous. And to those who have rejected him and sworn an oath to never believe in him continue to live.
Blaming God for man’s problems is a cop out. Simply looking to place blame does not fix the issue or the problems. Maybe it is much deeper and
complex than you know. Attempting to use logic or science to explain a supernatural phenomenon is ridiculous.
There are many definitions of religion and not all them deal with belief in deities but in a set of practices and beliefs. Doesn’t atheism have a
Do you think atheism is a form religion?
