Larry Wessels, Director of Christian Answers of Austin, Texas/ Christian Debater (websites: BIBLEQUERY.ORG, HISTORYCART.COM, & MUSLIMHOPE.COM; videos: see hundreds of videos by Larry Wessels on GOOGLE VIDEO, YAHOO VIDEO or AOL VIDEO) is joined in studio by Dale Delony, Director of Peaceway Productions for an analysis of the Religion of Atheism. "Webster's New World Dictionary" defines Atheism as "the belief that there is no God, or denial that God or gods exist." "The Philosophy of Religion," page 4 states, Atheism is "the belief that there is no God of any kind." In some cases Atheism has been defined as a self induced psychological mental condition usually acquired not at birth but later in life as a placea for dealing with reality.
Madalyn Murray O'Hair, in her book, "What On Earth Is An Atheist," said "Man is capable of mastering the forces of nature ... Materialism's faith is in man, and man's ability to transform the world by his own efforts ... not to hope for heaven beyond the grave." B.C. Johnson in his "The Atheist's Debater's Handbook" says "The Atheist may claim to know that God does not exist." Modern Atheism is not simply the absence of belief in God. It is actually an attack on God, a rebellion against God and a challenge to God.
Atheism suffers from the following deficiencies:
1. Philosophically Absurd
2. Scientifically Erroneous
3. Morally Bankrupt
4. Socially Destructive
5. Aesthetically Impotent
6. Humanly Degrading
A key "crutch" for the religion of Atheism is the mythology of "Evolution" popularized by Charles Darwin, a non-scientist who only held a degree in theology. Professor Louis Bounoure (former President of the Biological Society of Strasbourg & Director of the Strasbourg Zoological Museum, later Director of Research at the French National Centre of Scientific Research) stated, "Evolutionism is a fairy tale for grown ups. This theory has helped nothing in the progress of science. It is useless." (quoted from "The Advocate," Thursday. 8 March 1984, p.17).
MACRO EVOLUTION IS IMPOSSIBLE:
1. Evolution defies Natural Science - a universe CANNOT create itself (it would have to exist BEFORE it was created).
2. Evolution is AGAINST the known laws of Thermo Dynamics.
3. No known natural law can PRODUCE INFORMATION, i.e. LIFE from nonLIFE, etc.
4. No evidence of MACRO EVOLUTION in the established FOSSIL RECORD (which consists of BILLIONS of fossils).
5. The COMPLEXITY of the DNA MOLECULE shows the IMPOSSIBILITY of MACRO EVOLUTION.
6. SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE for a YOUNG EARTH is intentionally suppressed by the media & educational institutions due to ATHEISTIC RELIGIOUS BIAS. Macro Evolution is based on SCIENTISM, NOT SCIENCE. Scientism is not true science but begins by repudiating all that cannot be reduced to the physical & studied by means of the scientific method. It is a commitment to materialism first and this then shapes the science in a such a way that no supernatural explanation can be entertained whatsoever.
