The Great Debate, Young Earth vs. Old Earth

At the request of an atheist named Stan, I am inviting everyone to watch and discuss this debate that we both have watched.

The debate is available on DVD and is titled: The GREAT DEBATE on Science and the Bible The Young Earth vs. Old Earth with Ken Ham, Jason Lisle, Hugh Ross, & Walt Kaiser

Answers in Genesis was nice enough to post the Debate in their media section of their website. To watch the debate CLICK HERE. Please respond with your comments.

God Fearing Atheists?

Are these people confused or secretly hiding something? From this article titled Religion survey's God-fearing atheists

I quote "21 percent of the people who say they are atheists but express a belief in God or universal spirit, more than half of those who say they are agnostic express a similar belief."

"More than 90 percent of Americans — including one in five people who say they are atheists — believe in God or a universal power, and more than half pray at least once a day, according to results of a poll released Monday that takes an in-depth look at Americans' religious beliefs." (America's faith deep, nuanced)

The movement of the religion of Secular Humanism is catching on but not to the extent as they would have you believe. I remember a time, back in the 90's, when the Gay community was claiming 10% of America as being gay when the real numbers were around 1-3%. Now 5% claim atheism and is being promoted, but 'in the closet' 1 out of 5 of that 5% are believing in God and some even praying! All the glory to God.

It also appears that atheists are the minority in saying that "In God We Trust" should be taken out in mandated exercises of civic expression.

The atheists here in California wrongly claim: "These phrases represent outdated and government-sanctioned bigotry."

Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals said it best "When a survey says that atheists believe in God it seems obvious that some don't know what an atheist is or who God is or don't much think about logical inconsistency. But we know that lots of people aren't good at taking surveys!

Or maybe some atheists don't believe in God but would like to if they could find a way.

The universality of religion and the quest for God seems to confirm that there is an unsatisfied desire for God in almost all of us. Just because some arrive at an official "no God" philosophical conclusion doesn't mean that the universal desire is satisfied by denial. So, we have 21 percent of atheists who believe and pray anyway."

Atheist religion

It seems a group of people in Philadelphia with the religion of 'secular humanism' is promoting there hatred towards God by buying a huge billboard with the price tag of $22,500. On the billboard is a beautiful sky with the question "Don't believe in God? You are not alone."

This fits right into my hypothesis that most atheists seek validation from like minded individuals, for their beliefs, instead of seeking truth.

To the atheist: Look I fully understand that truth always is confrontational, there is always someone on the wrong side of truth. This is a very serious and real subject for us all. If I didn't love you enough to tell you the truth, then I wouldn't. If I truly love you, as I do, then I can only keep pressing you to the point of understanding. It takes far more love to confront then to ignore the situation, perfect love is a constant confronter.

I would rather like to receive a slight nod from God then to seek the applause of the entire world. Atheists, on the other hand, seek the validating applause of like minded individuals as seen on this new attack on God.

They are NOT seeking TRUTH they are seeking VALIDATION. There is a huge difference.


A Fresh New Start

Well, since I am getting kicked out of every atheist blogging site I figured I would start combating them in my own yard. Actually I do have a couple of static posts as hermeneutics instructions for others to read but this will be the first time I have blogged on any level.

I will be testing out features, such as video comments, and explore many subjects. This should be very fun with a new start.

I will do my very best to find time to blog at a consistent level and most of these blog subjects will be my reply's to what I read at other blogs that I have been banned at. A new baby is arriving into the family and time will be divided but I will see how often I can do this.
