The New Argument of the New Atheists

I don’t hate atheists.  I don’t like arguing for the sake of arguing and don’t have a ‘thing’ about winning a debate.  I discourse with atheists because I love them, and because I believe that I am right in my belief that God is going to call this world to account and if we do not have Christ as our advocate, we’re toast (And Christ stands ready to be our advocate the moment we’ll let him).

But I admit, the ‘new atheists’ get under my skin.   Fortunately, not every atheist I interact with fits that characterization.  Indeed, even some who … continue reading...

You are not as smart as you think you are- your brain is smarter than all the computers of the world

A friend of mine pointed me to this article this morning where it was revealed that a new imaging technology makes it possible to ‘see’ the inner workings of the brain to such an extent that it can be said:

A single human brain has more switches than all the computers and routers and Internet connections on Earth.

When presented with a level of complexity that the scientist who laid it bare himself suggests is ‘almost beyond belief’ the obvious conclusion is that you are in the presence of overwhelming evidence for intelligent design, and not just mediocre design, but … continue reading...

Apologetics is the Answer to Everything

Some Christians will begin seeing red just from reading the title of this entry.  They will be angry and annoyed and may even jump up out of their seats.  Therefore, let me say it again:  apologetics is the answer to everything.

Whether it be the rapid decline of the Christian Church in America, the brisk acceptance of homosexual ‘marriage,’ the prevailing and deepening culture of death, the shallow spirituality of many of the Christians who actually remain in the Church- and certainly much of the lack of action- and many other issues can track back to nothing less than disobedience, … continue reading...

Creationists Lurking Around Every Corner

I’m not really in the mood to discuss evolution right now but I feel it is my job to keep my devoted readers informed about such things.

One of arguments I’ve made in my ministry is really an observation:  in the hard core atheistic naturalistic community, if you don’t come to the same conclusions as they do on the science you are one of those dastardly, anti-intellectual, irrational creationists.  (For full effect, say that aloud, scratch yourself, and then at ‘creationists’ spit on the ground.  That will give you the attitude).

If you don’t seem dastardly, are very intellectual, and … continue reading...

In Response to a Monstrous Yahweh: Paul Copan

I just came across this article from the AtheismisDead blog and I haven’t had a chance to read the whole thing but the first three pages of it seem to have a lot of potential.  Paul Copan is addressing the challenges of the ‘new atheists’ about the Christian God, in particular in the Old Testament, being a brutal monster whom we don’t want for a role model and we certainly don’t want little humans imitating.

Perhaps this article will make up for the fact that I never got around to dishing out the full thrashing of Dawkins’s Delusion.  It seems … continue reading...
