Atheists Are Bright

Atheists Are Bright…

Atheists express their rage against God although in their view He does not exist.    ~~C.S. Lewis

Religion Must Be Destroyed, Atheist Alliance Declares
October 03, 2007

(CNSNews) Science must ultimately destroy organized religion, according to some of the leading atheist writers and intellectuals who spoke at a recent atheist conference in Northern Virginia . God is a myth, and children must not be schooled in any faith, they said, at the “Crystal Clear Atheism” event, sponsored by the Atheist Alliance International.

Some of the luminaries who spoke at the conference, held at the Crown Royal Hotel in Crystal City, Va., over the weekend, included Oxford professor Richard Dawkins, author Sam Harris and journalist Christopher Hitchens…

While most attendees on Friday night were adamant that God was a myth, the convention, attended by hundreds of people, brought into focus a divide among atheists as to their identity as a movement and the nature of the enemy they faced…

…Although Crystal Clear Atheism was well-attended, it received little publicity and media attention. The convention also experienced frequent technical difficulties, particularly during Dawkins’ Powerpoint slideshow…

…When asked what the main difference between believers and atheists was, Dawkins had a quick answer: “Well, we’re bright”…

Along the same line in an article titled “‘Brights’ vs. ‘benighted’ believers” Christian author Mary Eberstadt, a research fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution “explains that atheists have taken to calling themselves “brights” — a self-congratulatory moniker suggesting their intellectual superiority to benighted believers.”

Actually Richard Dawkins and the New Atheists may be correct in describing themselves as being “bright.”

Read Isaiah 14:12-15 in the Old Testament. Depending on the translation you’ll see different words that all point to the same idea of brightness describing Lucifer, aka Satan.  In part Isaiah 14:12 reads:

How you are fallen from heaven, O shining star, son of the morning! NIV

How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! NASB

How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! NKJV

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! KJV

Lucifer (Satan) is a Latin word meaning light-bearer

According to Strong’s Talking Greek &Hebrew Dictionary the Hebrew word for Lucifer is ‘halal’ (in the sense of brightness); the morning-star —.

In Latin Vulgate Jerome translated Lucifer as light-bearer.

The Apostle Paul in the New Testament, though warning against false apostles, wrote that Satan masqueraded as an angel of light:

For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself  masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve.                      2 Corinthians 11:13-15

So yes, Professor Dawkins, I agree with you. You and your minion are “bright.”

The other thing is people like Professor Dawkins ignore the hundreds of million of people that atheists (communists) have killed and enslaved.  Being godless didn’t prevent that!

Here’s a couple of other bright Atheists:

“God is dead”– Friedrich Nietzsche (1882)
“Nietzsche is dead”God (August 25, 1900)

Voltaire: (Actually Voltaire was probably not an Atheist but a Deist, others place him as an agnostic. Either way, he disdained Christianity):

Voltaire, claimed in the 1700’s that Christianity would be swept from existence and the Bible would be a forgotten book in one hundred years. Today, the Bible is still the world’s best selling book.   

Yale president Timothy Dwight wrote of Voltaire in his Address “Duty of Americans at the Present Crisis,” July 4, 1798, published in Encyclopedia Britannica’s Annals of America:

“About the year 1728, Voltaire, so celebrated for his wit and brilliancy and not less distinguished for his hatred of Christianity and his abandonment of principle, formed a systematical design to destroy Christianity and to introduce in its stead a general diffusion of irreligion and atheism… The principal parts were:…compilation of the Encyclopedia in which the doctrines Christian theology were rendered absurd…Overthrow religious orders…Fabrication of books against Christianity, such as excite doubt… Formation of a secret Academy of which Voltaire was the standing president and in which books were formed, altered, forged, imputed as posthumous to deceased writers of reputation.”

ATHEIST KIDS’ SONG!! Tim Hawkins  http://www.lifeisjesuschrist.com/2981/atheist-kids-song-tim-hawkins-hilarious

The old “strike me with lightening” challenge.
An atheist said to a Christian, “If God exists, may he prove himself by striking me dead right now.”

Nothing happened.

“You see, there is no God.”

The Christian responded, “You’ve only proved that He is a gracious God.”

The Atheists Holiday (humor)

Once an atheist became incensed over the preparation of Easter and Passover holidays. He decided to contact his lawyer about the discrimination inflicted on atheists by the constant celebrations afforded to Christians and Jews with all their holidays while atheists had no holiday to celebrate.

The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the long passionate presentation by the lawyer, the Judge banged his gavel and declared, ‘Case dismissed!’

The lawyer immediately stood and objected to the ruling and said, ‘Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter and many other observances. Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah…yet my client and all other atheists have no such holiday!’

The judge leaned forward in his chair and simply said, ‘Obviously your client is too confused to even know about, much less celebrate his own atheists’ holiday!’

The lawyer pompously said, ‘Your Honor, we are unaware of any such holiday for atheists. Just when might that holiday be, your Honor?’

The judge said, ‘Well it comes every year on exactly the same date—April 1st! Since our calendar sets April 1st as ‘April Fool’s Day,’ consider that Psalm 14:1 states, ‘The fool says in his heart, there is no God.’ Thus, if your client says there is no God, then by
scripture , he is a fool, and April 1st is his holiday! Now have a good day and get out of my courtroom!!

 

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 1:7

The story is told of a man preaching on Speakers’ Corner in Hyde Park in London, England, who in his sermon said that anyone who didn’t believe in God was a fool. A man in the crowd of listeners shouted out, “I’m an atheist. If you can’t prove that I’m a fool, I’ll publish it in the papers and we’ll run you out of town!”

“You really don’t believe in God?”

“You bet I don’t! I’ve been fighting against God all my life!”

“Tell me,” replied the preacher, “if a man who spends his life fighting against someone who doesn’t exist isn’t a fool, then who is?”

PRAISE THE LORD!

There was a little old lady, who every morning. stepped onto her front porch, raised her arms to the sky, and shouted:

PRAISE THE LORD!”

One day an atheist moved into the house next door. He became irritated at the little old lady. Every morning he’d step onto his front porch after her and yell: ” THERE IS NO LORD!”

Time passed with the two of them carrying on this way every day.

One morning, in the middle of winter, the little old lady stepped onto her front porch and shouted:

PRAISE THE LORD! Please Lord, I have no food and I am starving, provide for me, oh Lord!”

The next morning she stepped out onto her porch and there were two huge bags of groceries sitting there.

PRAISE THE LORD!” she cried out. “HE HAS PROVIDED GROCERIES FOR ME!”

The atheist neighbor jumped out of the hedges and shouted: “THERE IS NO LORD; I BOUGHT THOSE GROCERIES!!”

The little old lady threw her arms into the air and shouted:

PRAISE THE LORD! HE HAS PROVIDED ME WITH GROCERIES AND MADE THE DEVIL PAY FOR THEM!”

Atheists Run Ads Saying God ‘Probably’ Doesn’t Exist
October 23, 2008
London – In what humanists are calling a victory over religion, buses in the British capital will soon carry advertisements for atheism.
(how is buying advertising time “a victory”?)

The British Humanist Association said this week that an Internet fundraising campaign had raised more than enough money for the sides of 30 London buses to display the disparaging signs in January.

“There’s probably no God,” the signs will read. “Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.”

This is not a very comforting message from atheists. They say “God probably doesn’t exist.” Notice, they can’t state that without a doubt that God does not exist (doesn’t that make them more agnostic?). If they don’t know for sure they are doing mankind a huge disfavor by telling folks there is absolutely no God because if I’m wrong and the atheists are right there is still no down side to my believing in God and being a good Christian. However, if God is right and the atheists are wrong there is a major down side for them (and for all the people they misinform and mislead!) no matter how good an atheist they are.

The Atheist Barber

A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed.

As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about so many things and various subjects.

When they eventually touched on the subject of God, the barber said: “I don’t believe that God exists.”

“Why do you say that?” asked the customer.

Replying the barber said, “Well, you just have to go out in the street to realize that God doesn’t exist. Tell me, if God exists, would there be so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children? If God existed, there would be neither suffering nor pain. I can’t imagine a loving God who would allow all of these things.”

The customer thought for a moment, but didn’t respond because he didn’t want to start an argument. The barber finished his job and the customer left the shop.

Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair and an untrimmed beard. He looked dirty and unkempt.

The customer turned back and entered the barber shop again and he said to the barber: “You know what? Barbers do not exist.”

“How can you say that?” asked the surprised barber.

“I am here, and I am a barber. And I just worked on you!”

“No!” the customer exclaimed. “Barbers don’t exist because if they did, there would be no people with dirty long hair and untrimmed beards, like that man outside.”

“Ah, but barbers DO exist! That’s what happens when people do not come to me.”

“Exactly!” affirmed the customer. “That’s the point! God, too, DOES exist! That’s what happens when people do not go to Him and don’t look to Him for help. That’s why there’s so much pain and suffering in the world.”
