Check out the article in USA Today about the upcoming rally in D.C. I am sure you might want to make plans to attend! For our purposes, though, read some of the comments at the end of the article to see what people are saying about faith, reason, Jesus, etc. I am sure that some of those same arguments were around in John’s day.
It seems next to impossible to reach the minds and hearts of those kinds of people. How to do it? How do we sow the seed with those kinds of thinkers, so that God can give the increase? The atheist says he is all for reason, then you see this quote from Richard Dawkins in the article:
“Dawkins recently told the Archbishop of Canterbury, head of the worldwide Anglican Communion, that the probability of a supernatural creator was “very, very low.” The idea of life starting from nothing is, he said, “such a staggering, elegant, beautiful thing. Why would you want to clutter it up with something so messy as a god?”
Think about it (using reason and common sense)…what is more likely, something was created by someone, or something was created by nothing?? Dawkins is a scientist. Do you think he has ever created something from nothing? Do you think he can even contemplate or explain how that would happen?
Finally, notice the chart at the end of the article. Isn’t it interesting that there really isn’t that many of them that are avowedly athiest?
On another note, some of us have the buzz going in our ears. There seems to be some promising treatment for that being developed.
