Incredible.

Fog in Rio. It's moments like these that blow my mind. Because the average Christian sees it and says "It's a miracle!" True. The average atheist sees it and says, "It's an admittedly sweet event, but not outside the realms of good probability!" Also true. So what are we to make of la epicness?Exactly what I talked about in my last post, How To Convert. The miracle is that we are struck, atheist and theist alike. The miracle is that we care, when no other life-form seems to. The miracle is … [Read more...]

How To Convert

The common view of religious conversion seems to be this: There are many ways one can stumble towards the gentleman we call God. And on the surface, I agree. After all, rainbows and relationships have lead men to faith, as have Holocausts and heartaches. Collins converted at the sight of beauty; Walker Percy at the sight of a Jew in New York City. Dorothy Day became a Catholic by a series of small and slow steps; St. Paul by one big fall, simultaneously off and onto his ass.But it is … [Read more...]

In Defense of Stupid Conversions (God Exists!)

The New Atheist gets all grumpy about 'stupid' conversions to the faith. Francis Collins - a self-described 'obnoxious atheist' and incredible genetic scientist - revealed the end of his own journey to God... "I turned the corner and saw in front of me this frozen waterfall, a couple of hundred feet high. Actually, a waterfall that had three parts to it — also the symbolic three in one. At that moment, I felt my resistance leave me. And it was a great sense of relief. The next morning, in the d … [Read more...]

The Atheist’s Self Help Blog or How To Save an Ideology While Getting Girls To Like You! Part II Being – Practice What Ye Preacheth

Its an assumption we might as well take for fact, that if one were to see a man preaching his foolproof method of avoiding alcoholism while proceeding to get entirely trashed, one would assume something wrong with the method, and certainly something wrong with the man. That much would be an easy reaction. The exceedingly difficult - if not impossible - reaction would be to ignore the incongruity of the drunken man, and to follow his method of abstinence. (Actually, it's just plain difficult to … [Read more...]

The Atheist’s Self-Help Blog or How – With a Little Remodeling – You Can Prevent Your Views From Being Laughed At All The Time, Part I Being The Obtaining of Women

Get some girls. I understand the joy of having a Boy's Club, I really do, but the lack of beauty at your conferences is seriously limiting. It might seem like a trifle, having women on your side, but you must realize - dear atheism - that the world will never go where women aren't. Women are awesome. Think back to your high-school days, remember those invitations to parties or hang-outs or study groups, and remember the only thing on that really mattered: "Will there be any girls there?" This … [Read more...]

God Hates Gays…

...so claims, not only the Westboro Baptist Church member picketing a funeral (may he be sat on by a 300-pound Marine), but also the New Atheist, as an argument that Christianity is a terrible blight on the face of earth. Though I wish it were otherwise, this seems to be the height of atheistic argument these days. The Christian today is rarely faced with any remonstration over his moral code, or an even halfway-decent explanation of the existence of the universe. Rather, conversations with … [Read more...]

Looking Up

There are two ways to look up. The first is done while screaming.If the world has no value outside of being spewed up by Chance, we cannot aspire to anything but a fear beyond fear; terror in sight of the poker face that is the vastness of space. If the atheists are right, then we are nothing. If Earth truly is an insignificant dust mote swept into an insignificant galaxy by monumental and purposeless brooms, contained in a universe that is one of many, inexplicably and forever cycling, or … [Read more...]

The Desperation of the Atheists

I guess I never realized it, but our non-believing folk are quite excited about the idea of disproving the existence of God. Apparently, it will halt mankind from waging war, smoking, and feeling awkward about gay sex, while simultaneously leading to a brotherhood amongst men via increased time spent on the Holy Internet. But honestly - though these goals send shivers of warmth down my typing fingers - I would venture that the atheist is almost too excited, in that every new discovery - or old … [Read more...]

The Mistake Atheists Make

"The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried." - G.K ChestertonI'm not convinced of atheism, but I'm not half as skeptical of it as atheists are. The aggressive promotion of something NOT existing, if not pathologically insecure, is at least a little odd. For instance, I rarely work to set up a million dollar ad campaigns advocating the glory of life without unicorns, as the recent "Good Without God" campaign did for the glories of l … [Read more...]
