Your Days are Numbered

Lately, Atheism has been on the rise in the United States.  Statistics and polls show that the number of people claiming to be non-believers keeps increasing each year.  Recent books written on this topic have become best-sellers.  Now, I’ve always had a difficult time understanding Atheism.  Even if you are not very spiritually minded, it takes a huge amount of Faith to look at the precision orderliness of the universe and make the mental leap to a conclusion of random development.  It’s sort of like throwing a handful of metals and materials against the wall and then expecting to create a precision Swiss watch.  I don’t care how many trillions of times you do it--plain common sense says it just won’t happen.  Maybe that’s why the Bible wastes precious little breath on Atheists.  In fact, there is only ONE statement in the Bible to address this idiocy: 

The fool hath said in his heart, “There is no God”.

Apparently, it’s such a ludicrous position, that nothing further needs to be said on the matter.  Go back to your random development of the Swiss precision watch.  See you in Infinity.

I think at the root of an Atheist’s angst lies a deep anguish over the fact that, sooner or later, despite their “superior intellect”, they too must face Death.  They are not going “gently into that good night” but instead “rage, rage against the dying of the light” kicking and screaming the whole way.

Here’s the first stanza of that famous poem by Dylan Thomas:

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Interestingly, one of the most well known Atheists, Christopher Hitchens, wrote obsessively about poet Dylan Thomas.  Apparently, Hitchens also experienced this “raging against the dying of the light”.  He ultimately got esophageal cancer, lost his voice and died a premature death in 2011.  He wrote a book entitled “Mortality” which documented his cancer struggle.  It is interesting that his own mortality was the most important topic foremost on his mind at the end of his life.  Why, as an Atheist, would he even care about his mortality or think others would bother to read about it?  Based on his own philosophy, Death should have been a welcome and pleasant respite for him.  It’s something to think about.   

Everyone has to die once, then face the consequences.
~Hebrews 9:27

You see, Death is the great equalizer and at the core of an Atheist’s soul (although they don’t believe that they actually have one), they truly think that they are smarter and better than everyone else.  The new Atheistic movement even arrogantly calls its members the “Brights!"  Since, they believe they are smarter than others, it PAINS them deeply that their own doctrine requires that they will ultimately cease to exist.  This, in their thought process, is simply NOT FAIR.  Even their clouded minds recognize that “ceasing to exist” is not a natural state for mankind.  Only when you understand that we are spiritual beings, do you recognize this normal longing for significance and meaning.  Animals don’t wake up every morning wondering if their life will make an impact on the world or where they end up in the afterlife.  There is only ONE common thread found in EVERY culture ever studied through archeology, anthropology, cave drawings, manuscripts, art, etc. and that is:
Belief in a Higher Power

It’s simply pre-programmed into our DNA.    

One of the tenets of Atheism is Earth worship, or as I like to ironically point out: “Creation Worship”.  According to many Atheists, “Surplus” people are wasting precious resources from their Mother Earth.  Look no further than PETA or the Earth Liberation Front (ELF) to see an ugly close up of this unfettered anger.  They save chickens and hug trees with aggressive activism, yet the slaughter of millions of humans doesn’t rate a blip on their radar screen.  In fact, they welcome it.  Scratch the surface of every Atheistic society and you will always find mass genocide.  This position is actually a logical result of Atheism.  It makes perfect humanistic sense if you believe there is no God or afterlife.   Since this temporal life is all that they have to look forward to, any desecration of the planet or animal kingdom causes uncontrolled FURY:

FOR GOD’S SAKE (oops, they mean for PETE’S SAKE)…


Despite all their talk about wanting an organized and polite society outside of God’s Laws, Atheists promote that we are no different morally than creatures in the animal kingdom.  But the one major rule of the animal kingdom is—“Kill or be Killed”.  In that respect, the animal kingdom is actually more honest than an Atheist’s supposed utopian God-less fantasy.  Animals openly structure their lives around territorial prowess, limited resources, random mating and survival of the fittest. 

Which…come to think of it…sounds pretty much like the God-denying Democratic Party Platform.  

Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
~Psalm 90:12

The Almighty hath implanted in us these unextinguishable feelings for good and wise purposes. They are the guardians of his image in our hearts. They distinguish us from the herd of common animals.
~Thomas Paine (quote from “Common Sense” written in 1776)

Please join us in the Grassroots movement National Day of Repentance:
In honor of our Judeo-Christian heritage, Americans will pray and fast from Sunset on 9/25/12 through Nightfall on 9/26/12. This will also kick off 40 days of prayer until the 11/6/2012 election:
40 Days to Save America
