An atheist will harden his heart the more time passes, since his sins and the shame that he feels will wanting him to take distance from a judging deity and making him wishing, that, none exists.

The natural world pointing to God has made unbelievers unexcusable, already two thousand years ago. How much more today, where science has unravelled new worlds, like the molecular world, demonstrating unmatched degrees of complexity that nobody would and could have imagined or foreseen in its wildest dreams.

When unbelievers ridicule the inference of God as magic, they seem not to be aware that replacing a creative intelligent organizing power by random unplanned and undirected unguided events, THAT is, in reality, the appeal to "magic" that can't be demonstrated to be possible to occur.

Either our existence is a miracle in any case, and then the common objection of unbelievers calling God creating " magic " is disingenuous at best, or then, alternatively, the origin of reality and being by natural means should be so obvious, that there should / would be no questioning in its regards.

The bridge from research papers of professional scientists, to the general public that has no knowledge of the richness and vast knowledge and how deep it has digged into molecular biology, is still small. But when more bridges are build, and the professional language is translated into one that also the less educated can understand, the general ignorance will be removed, and the fact that science leads to God will become far more evident, than it is today. A good way has been gone, but far more is ahead. Great, revolutionary times, to unravel the Glory of Gods supreme intelligence and power to all people.

Lack of bias and good will will lead you to have an open heart, an open door, and seek God. Education is the key to unlock the door of freedom , give you knowledge of the truth propositions in the book of the Bible and nature through science, give you strength in your convictions, and equipe you to object and refute the lies that suppress the truth with eloquence and tap the mouth of unbelievers.

Curiosity is what scientists breath every day. It is the motor that makes them dig deeper and deeper, without being ever satisfied. Hunger for knowledge makes them unravel Gods hidden treasures and unravel new awesome worlds, Gods great works. Unbelievers run in circles screaming all the time " There is no evidence of God", and that becomes soon boring, frustrating, cognitive dissonance installs, and nihilism is the end result. But the believer sees his faith confirmed, time after time, and his dwelling in knowledge is a path of great intellectual satisfaction, and peace is his constant companion.

The expansion rate of the universe: 1 part in 10^55
The chance to get a finely tuned universe with stars: 10^229
The electromagnetic radiation of the sun is restricted to a tiny region of the total electromagnetic spectrum, equivalent to one of 10^25, and that is the region precisely required for life.
The odds against a successful unguided synthesis of a batch of primed nucleotide on the primitive Earth: 10^109
The odds to specify just ONE life-essential protein like Helicase by chance: 1 to 10^1300
The odds to specify the right amino acid sequence for a minimal Cell: 560 proteins x average 400 amino acids each:  224.000 amino acids. The odds: 10^378.000 !!

Life emerged either by a freaky lucky accident or the creative act of a super intelligent, powerful designer. Based on the knowledge of how minutely small the probability is, that a life-permitting universe and life arose by unguided occurrences, we can infer creation as the better alternative.

Thou shall not commit logical fallacies. Like claiming that logic can come from non-logic.

If the natural world is all there is, the life of a human is of no more importance than an amoeba, or even a lifeless rock.

Based on that philosophy, men is able to treat other humans with the vilest cruelty if it fits his interesses and egoistic purposes, and feel it has no importance and will not affect him.

If you want something to be true, and truth claims emerge which confirm what you want to be true, even if you have to take it on blind faith and hear say, you won't hesitate to believe and endorse and defend it as if it was the ultimate truth. And if someone challenges you on what you defend, you will immediately point to your authoritative source.

Many atheists regard is as stimulating, thrilling, and gives them auto-affirmation and self-esteem, when they find theists with little knowledge or ability to defend their faith, and are able to attack their religion and knock them down intellectually.
I occur with frequency.
When the same atheist encounters a well-articulated, well-informed believer, and is unable to do the same, he simply avoids further dialogue but does not scrutinize his views.
His other positive experiences where he won, however, and the kick of self-esteem, is a cherished feeling. So what does he do? He ignores the negative experience, name calls and blocks the believer, and moves forward to his next "victim".
He does not realize that it takes very little for a well-informed believer to take his card house apart.
Helicase are a class of enzymes vital to all living organisms. Their main function is to unpackage an organism's genes, and they are essential for DNA replication, and evolution to be able to occur. They require 1000 left-handed amino acids in the right specified sequence. Each of the 1000 amino acids must be the right amongst 20 to chose from. How did they emerge by natural processes? The chance to get them by random chemical reactions is 1 to 20^1000..... there are 10^80 atoms in the universe.
This alone means end of game. But which atheist realizes it?
His self-delusion and will to remain on the same track speaks louder.
I have invited Matt Dillahunty, Aron Ra, Jamie Boone, and several other well known outspoken atheists to accept my FB " friendship" request, to come here an defend their views.
They have avoided and not accepted it. Why? Because of their previous experiences, where they did not come through with their arguments.
While we, believers, propagate our faith with the aim to fulfil the Lord's command to go and proclaim the truth, for HIS glory, and giving others the opportunity of forgiveness, eternal life, and knowing the goodness of the Lord, atheists do normally debate theists just for egoistic purposes.
That is the reason, why we rarely encounter atheists converting after an extensive dialogue. It's not what they are looking for. They have no motivation to convert themselves.
Why do we engage nonetheless? Because the Lord commanded it. If the body of Christ would not proclaim the truth, stones would.
Isaiah 52.7:
How beautiful on the mountains
are the feet of those who bring good news,
who proclaim peace,
who bring good tidings,
who proclaim salvation,
who say to Zion,
“Your God reigns!”

Atheist: Atheism makes no claims. Its just a lack of belief that God exists.

Response: Theism doesn't make a claim. It's just a lack of belief that the natural world is all there is.

Presto. You make them see how their boring & fallacious dodging feels like !!

63My dictums - Page 3 Empty Re: My dictums on Thu Aug 01, 2019 4:18 am


There are many " invisible" people that we encounter and meet, most often " accidentally" in our daily life. Door keepers, beggars on a street corner, people that offer things to buy at traffic lights ( more in 3thd world countries ) etc. How do we treat these people?

I confess, i have often ( and still today ) ignore them. They are invisible and "insignificant" in our perception of priorities.

On the Road to Emmaus
13 Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles[a] from Jerusalem. 14 They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. 15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; 16 but they were kept from recognizing him.

17 He asked them, “What are you discussing together as you walk along?”

They stood still, their faces downcast. 18 One of them, named Cleopas, asked him, “Are you the only one visiting Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?”

Jesus did not make himself known to his apostles. They had no idea who was walking with them.

Sometimes in our life's we miss opportunities by dismissing people which we do not recognize.

We need to teach ourselves to set priorities in our lifes. And giving importance to people that we deal with on a daily basis, even if they appear not to be important to us. How many times have we given more importance to material things rather than to people?

How many times have we set judgement on people based on their social rank, status, race, color, gender etc ? Probably all of us have failed to a certain degree to value others as they deserve, and need to " work" on this.

‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

If a basic collection of atoms forming elements like oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, carbons, iron etc. can make rocks, mud, sand, water, and "simple" molecules, like lipids, amino acids, hydrocarbons, and nucleotides, and these form into organelles, molecular machines, information storage devices like DNA, then cells, multicellular organisms, mammals with brains, giving rise to consciousness and intelligence, and ultimatively man with its human brain, so massively intelligent that despite of its intelligence is unable to recreate a brain, then we must conclude, that ultimately elementar paticles and rocks are smarter than the human mind by creating the brain all by themselves with the amazing ally, long periods of time, and i'll say to the rocks: ROCK ON !! , or an intelligence, massively more intelligent than us, made us.

Sorry atheists. I go with the second option !!

65My dictums - Page 3 Empty Re: My dictums on Sat Aug 10, 2019 3:28 pm


The circle of theism closes, because we start with an eternal God, which created us, and when we die, we return to God, either as saved, or non-saved. From God, to God, and then to our eternal never ending destination.

In atheism, there is no circle that closes. We come from unknown origins, and return to nowhere. No origin, no destiny. No answers in ultimate instance. Atheists do not know about origins, and think once they die, their existence ceases to exist.

66My dictums - Page 3 Empty Re: My dictums on Thu Sep 12, 2019 5:29 am


Atheism: The attempt to rationalize the irrational to become rational, and the rationality of theism to look irrational.

67My dictums - Page 3 Empty Re: My dictums on Wed Oct 09, 2019 2:05 am


An atheist that deserves to be called atheist does not proselityze believers in the attempt to drag them down to unbelief.
A true atheist considers the quest of Gods existence, and Gods existence " per sé", irrelevant, and goes after his own business and interests, and leaves God completely out of his life, and doesnt make it an issue.

Someone that enters chatrooms, facebook groups, TV and Radioprograms to actively defend and promote his disbelief and attacks believers and what they believe, is a ANTI-theist, or a misotheist. A God hater.

The kind of people with genuine doubts but willing to seek God and give a try extremely rarely show up with an open mind, just asking questions to believers to learn, in order to become believers as well. To be honest, i don't remember to have met one. I might have, but dont even remember. Its too rare.

But they are out there. Many simply do their research by their own, something between them and God, and they find the answers they seek autonomously, and answers at Church, or family.

But, whatever, it is delightful to be light in a world that is in darkness, and to proclaim the truth of an amazing God we have, and believe in. It is very gratifying. Our God is an amazing God, and it is amazing to discover , know him, and his hands in creation.

68My dictums - Page 3 Empty Re: My dictums on Wed Oct 09, 2019 2:09 am


Atheist: There is not enough evidence for Gods existence.
Theist: There is not enough evidence that there is no God.
