Atheism


If you don't believe in God, I propose that you go on a 24 hour distilled water fast - as much water as you want, but only water - no cheating.  This will put you in touch with your mortality, and in touch with God.  There are also health benefits to fasting, so you can't lose (unless you have some health issues, so consult your physician first in this case, before trying).

If it can be demonstrated that sufficient evidence exists (i.e., textual, historical, archaeological) to authenticate the Bible as a thoroughly reliable historical document, will you then accept its ethical and moral imperatives? If not, then don't trouble yourself about reading this paper. Yours isn't an intellectual problem, but rather a volitional problem - a matter of the will.

28:54 A cross dresser says it's ok - This is called idolatry.  It's where we shape a god to suit ourselves, to suit our sins.  You "believe" in God, but you don't obey Him.  You're not living in holiness.  You're playing the hypocrit, gambling with your life.  Get right with God today.


30:38 An atheist once said that John Lennon's "Imagine" is an anthem for atheism.

08:52 Aurochs (is this where the Lorax comes from?)


24:05 It's ideas, not worms, that hijack our brains.  These are ideas that can copy themselves, that can make us copy them, not only rehearsing them in our own brains, over and over, but spreading them to our friends, and our neighbors, and our family, and populating the world with many copies of these ideas.  This of course is the idea of "memes" that Richard Dawkins first introduced in his famous book, "The Selfish Gene," which appeared just 30 years ago.


38:53 There's competition in people's minds for space - some win in the replication tournament . . . Supernatural agents are for occupying the minds that they find themselves in, some do us good, some do us harm, some are neutral . . . Symbiants come in these three varieties also, some of which are essential to your life, you wouldn't want to get rid of them . . .


42:20 So, don't be disgusted by your symbiants, most of them are harmless - Same thing with all of the cultural symbiants that infest your brain - this is what the "memes" perspective gives you . . . 


42:55 Here's a riddle then.  How are "spoken" words and "folk songs" like squirrels, rats, pigeons, and barn swallows? . . . Answer:  They're not domesticated, but wild . . . they live in close proximity to us to exploit aspects of human ecology for their own benefit - they're just around, and they do very well . . . languages too are like wild memes . . .


"Memes" seems like what the Bible is talking about in 2 Corinthians 10:5:  "Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;" (2 Co 10:5)


The organizing, guiding, principle of the Bible is to *always* choose life. That's what turning away from sin is about. If you go against the Bible, then you're in the meme / culture of death . . . Deut 30:19 (NKJV) I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;


The atheist would say the Christian "meme" is just to control people - What actually are the pros and cons of being a follower of Jesus?  Do the benefits outweigh the negatives?


Pros:

1.) The guiding principle, the organizing principle, is to always choose life (Deut 30:19)

2.) You know how you will behave from day to day, hour to hour, minute to minute, moment to moment

3.) You will reject behaviors and ideas that lead to death, physical and spiritual

4.) You are guaranteed to have eternal life in heaven, and to avoid of hell

5.) Creation makes sense - It gives you a purpose for living, it gives you hope when things are hopeless


Cons:

1.) You have to give up your identity as the master of your domain, and submit your will to the will of God

2.) You have to accept that the meta-physical realm exists - that is, something beyond the physical realm, that which we can see and touch

The Black Hole War 280400-1, by Leonard Susskind, C-SPAN Video Library - Around the edge of a black hole is the information that projects us as holograms.  If we could get there, the question is, can the hologram change the information?  This will determine if teleportation is possible. . . . http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/280400-1


Satan will come up with anything to degrade you, and keep you from understanding that you're a precious child of God.  For example:


1.) He will say that we are descended from monkeys, apes, worms, or primordial slime

2.) He will say that in the big scheme of things, that you are nothing more than a cosmic space turd, or a star turd

3.) Demons conducting alien abduction will say that you're a hybrid - half human / half angel, or half human / half alien

4.) He will say that we are holograms


The devil will say anything to get you to lose your sense of being special - and he uses scientists to do it.  Not all scientists are bad, some do make the world a better place to live in.


. . . You have to remember that it's the Bible that has the Truth.  Test everything against the Word of God - that's how you discern Truth from Lies.

Related to Star Trek:  Only God can do teleporting, which He will do in the Rapture.  Satan can only mimic and copy it.  We see in Star Trek that man can do it, to take away our knowledge of this fact.

In the Meyers-Briggs personality test, I tested as the INTJ, so I can speak from this:

http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp

http://typelogic.com/intj.html


Example of how mis-understandings take place:


In the movie "Expelled" on intelligent design, Dawkins said, "In other words, if it were shown that life is designed, then the most obvious candidate for a designer is some advanced civilization from another planet."


So, he's saying that aliens created us, right?


I went to an atheist blog and said, "Did you know that Dawkins said he thinks aliens created us?" ... and I heard over an over again, "No, he did NOT say that."


So I thought, what's going on? Why are they saying that? He did say it.


Then I thought, in my personality type, the "J," Judging, means that I make quick decisions about things. That's why I interpret Dawkins as saying that "aliens created us."


It occurred to me that Dawkins could be the INTP. The "P" (counterpoint to "J") means "Perceiving." INTPs leave things open ended. They stay open to perception - so he didn't actually, really say that aliens created us.


I mentioned this in the atheist blog, and they agreed, "Correct, he didn't say that aliens *did* create us, he said that they're a *more likely* explanation than design by a magical deity. Extra-terrestrial creation of the first monomers on Earth is a far more likely explanation than speaking the world into existence in an instant. At least there's a natural explanation for the extra-terrestrials existing. Stein used a mined quotation out of context ('quote mining')."


I checked it out, and found that someone has Dawkins down has being the INTP:

http://www.typetango.com/intp-personality.php

http://typelogic.com/intp.html


Personally, I believe God spoke the world into existence. If man gets rid of the concept of something external to, and above him, you make yourself into a God, which is dangerous, and the oldest trick in the book.

Atheists believe in evolution:  primordial slime > ape > trans-humanism / eternal life > alien (these are really demons in disguise)


The Christian version is:  unsaved > saved > sanctified > heaven / eternal life with Jesus

Greg Koukl - Stand to Reason (STR) . . . http://www.str.org/site/PageServer . . . there's a training on here . . . show the atheist that he's really an agnostic - because it's impossible for him to really *know* some things - get him to say it in his own words, then he will be more open to the gospel.


Atheists are often very intelligent, and it's this intelligence that is their worst enemy, because they can't see beyond the lies.  All they're willing to look at is what is in the physical world, because they want proof - that's where the snare is for them - they want proof, that's where they slip up - They fail to understand the concept of faith, because faith is believing without seeing, which is what it says in the Bible.  They're thinking with the carnal mind, so they're stuck, they can't get into the spiritual way of thinking.

Hypothesis - Prayer is like the placebo effect, it never really cures a person

What's the difference between faith (not relying on a feeling but believing / trusting in something you cannot see) and placebo (the power of suggestion)?

A placebo never actually cures, it can have an adverse effect, and is short lived.
