“An atheist is a man who believes himself to be an accident” – Francis Thompson
I COULD NOT resist sharing a beautiful story I heard after coming across a recent wave of campaigns by a militant Atheist group in the United States going by the name ‘Undo Jesus.’ The group is on a “mission” to rid the world of Christianity. They oppose the idea that Jesus Christ is the son of God, among other ludicrous things.
Honestly, in my view, atheism would have been so funny if it were not so sad. One has to see the vainness of being an atheist; first they claim God does not exist and then go on to expend resources, time and energy trying to rid the world of someone they claim doesn’t even exist. It does not add up!
So the beautiful story goes: two unborn babies were discussing in their mother’s womb. One asked the other: “Do you believe in life after delivery?”
The other replied, “Why, of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.”
“Nonsense!” said the first baby, “There is no life after delivery. What kind of life would that be?”
The second said, “I don’t know, perhaps the light will be more than here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat from our mouths. Maybe we will have Mother take care of us.”
The first replied, “Mother! You actually believe in Mother! That’s laughable. If mother exists, then where is she now?”
The second said, “She is all around us. We are surrounded by her. We are of her. It is in her that we live. Without her, this world would not and could not exist.” To which the second replied, “Sometimes, when you’re in silence and you focus and you really listen, you can perceive her presence, and you can hear her loving voice, calling down from above.”
Surely, I may not write this article from a religious or Christian standpoint and yet still come to the firm conclusion that atheism is a cousin of insanity. Probably, like Albert Einstein said, the world is like the tail of a lion which we cannot see.
All that science can only do is to discover the sophistries put in place by God. Apparently, the ultimate goal of atheism is to negate all moral standards and to make humanity a little closer to animals.
The point though is not to senselessly take aim at atheism but, for an adult gifted with five senses to suppose that the human system itself is the work of nature and not a Maker is to go a little insane.
To me, just like Einstein observed, the mere arrangement of nature or the function of the human body – its intricate systems like the endocrine system or nervous system would prove amply the existence of a Maker whether I had been an atheist or not.
It therefore brings me to the inescapable conclusion that atheists have a more sinister agenda than merely denying the existence of God because atheist arguments sound more like blind men arguing against the beauty in a sunset; they are like deaf men denying the beauty of a song.
Perhaps no atheist captures the atheist ethos more than Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) the brother of the atheistic evolutionist sir Julian Huxley who advocated a drug-fuelled utopia. He gave the reason
for his anti-Christian stance saying, “I had motive for not wanting the world to have a meaning… the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation, sexual and political”.
Like Huxley, some people don’t like God because they don’t like moral constraints-you can make up your own rules, or have none at all, if God does not exist. And it is religion, particularly Christianity that reminds them of God hence the venomous hatred.
I, at times, wonder why the gift of common sense is not universal to all. To any thinking and intelligent men the footprints of God are there in every path of our lives; from the time the baby is in the womb, the provisions made and the protection of the outer membrane cannot be the work of chance by any inch.
To be consistent with atheism is to deny the existence of any moral standard, but it shocks me to find that in real life atheists adopt the theistic worldview if someone steals from them. Since their ultimate goal is to be liberated I wonder why an atheist would find the idea of marrying an animal repulsive.
That is all that atheism aims at; to be our own gods and our own masters and creators. They are inconsistent, only consistent when it is convenient for them.
To conclude, again I say atheism surely would have been hilarious, a circus of some sort if it were not so sad. There is God in heaven.
“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.” Revelation 1:7 (KJV).
