Never Argue With An Atheist

Warning! Contains “mature” language!

Introduction

I hate to generalize, but if you’ve ever read writings or dialogs involving atheists, I’m sure that you would have noticed the utter contempt for those who don’t see the world as they do, and a lack of civility and tolerance. Last week, I thought I would attempt a reasonable conversation with an Atheist, but was quickly reminded that that is not possible.

God and Gremlins: Why I Believe

Believing in God is akin to believing in gremlins. Believing in God is irrational, backwards, or illogical. At least this is what “rational” society would have you believe. Rational society also defines faith as believing in what you know isn’t so, but what they don’t understand is that this definition couldn’t be further from the truth. There are valid, and convincing, arguments for the existence of God, and not gremlins. As someone who flirted with atheism, I would like to share some of the evidence as to why I believe.

Science Is A Tool, Not An Authority

One of the things Christians are attacked over is their “unreasonably blind” faith, and “willful ignorance” of modern science. Although I would agree that there are Christians that hold their beliefs without asking the questions of why, that is not the case for all, and those that do ask the questions find that there are reasonable arguments for the Christian worldview.

New Planet Habitable? Slow Down There Speed Racer!

Last week it was announced that a new planet was found circling a red dwarf star similar to our Sun.  Like Earth, it circles its sun in the Goldilocks zone.  In other words, it’s at a distance that is not too hot and not too cold, but just right.  It doesn’t rotate like Earth, but more like our Moon, so one side is always light, and one is always dark, leaving a band that would have a decent temperature.  They also have calculated that its gravity is probably very similar to Earth, and maybe slightly stronger.

At this point, that’s really all they know, but it’s already being treated that life is a given.  My son came home from school and announced that a planet has been found with water and trees.  I have not contacted the school to find out how much is exaggeration, but going by the comments from some of the scientific community, I would not be surprised.
