The Dilemma of New Atheism

 

Humanity in the 21st century is particularly bent on bettering society and revolutionizing the world. Political correctness and the embrace of universal indifference has discernibly infiltrated the mindsets of people and brought awareness for self empowerment; thus causing an exclusion of any religious concept, especially Biblical Christianity. Apart from lack of faith in God, most refuse to be subject to a higher power; let alone a mandated lifestyle and the thought of restraint or submission is unbearable. Today, unbelief and lack of acknowledgment towards God is no longer an individual reserved personal thought, but rather a strongly outspoken view that longs to disprove and annihilate faith in God.

 As active atheist Richard Dawkins puts it in The God Delusion, “I do everything in my power to warn people against faith itself.” Others attacking the thought of special creation, Atheist Stephen Jay Gould claims “we are here because one odd group of fishes had a peculiar fin anatomy that could transform into legs for terrestrial creatures; because comets struck the earth a whipped out dinosaurs, thereby giving mammals a chance not otherwise available…” Atheist Carl Sagan believed that extraterrestrials would be able to explain to humanity and justify the billions of dollars spent on listening in on outer space waiting for some contact. Philosopher Betrand Russell claims the universe is “just there,” but holds to no scientific explanation. Francis Crick, the co discoverer of the structure of the DNA molecule who believes life came about “probably because a spaceship from another planet brought spores to seed the Earth.”

It seems that these men of renowned intellect cannot give a remotely intelligible answer for creation and it would be safe to say that these answers are rife with ignorance. What is confusing about New Atheism is that these individuals are militantly seeking to destroy faith and God, but the question the author has is thus, if God does not exist why argue? This militant approach New Atheists are taking to destroy faith and religion is not any different than accusations they raise against organized religion being responsible for hate. Is not what they are promoting in effect the same thing? New Atheists have one thing in mind, world domination. They desire a world that has their worldview only and will not stop until that comes to fruition. Their first objective, eliminate Christianity in the western world. Evidently, these New Atheists are not historians. Christianity has faced a myriad of attacks throughout its history: Valerius Diocletian persecuted Christians and tried to destroy every bible. Then 25 years later, the Roman emperor Constantine ordered that 50 perfect copies of the Bible be made at the governments’ expense. The French philosopher Voltaire, a skeptic who destroyed the faith of many people, boasted that within 100 years of his death, the Bible would disappear from the face of the earth. Voltaire died in 1728, but the Bible lives on. The irony of history is that 50 years after his death, the Geneva Bible Society moved into his former house and used his printing presses to print thousands of Bibles. These attacks have only made Christianity stronger, as it adds to its numbers daily with new converts.

    Christians have been changing the world into their OWN image ever since the church was co-opted by the Roman state, and thus became an integral player in the Western drive to achieve complete power and control over every one and every thing.

    Which INEVITABLY gave the entire world the applied Christian politics as described in these two references.

    Hi, I am from Australia.

    Never mind that we live in a time when ALL of the Sacred Scriptures of the entire Great Tradition of humankind are freely available to anyone with and internet connection–and everything about all of the various traditions too.

    There is a book in my local library that has over 2000 names of God from all over the world. Each with a brief description of the cultural origin/context of the name of God.

    So why therefore is the only (seeming) choice between atheism and the dim-witted power and control seeking tribalistic cultic Biblical “God”-idea that you subscribe too?

      I subscribe to the God of the Bible, the one true God. By the way, did you even read the post? Your comments have nothing to do with what was spoken of.
