Yes God Exists

Atheism is neither logical nor rational and is certainly not an intelligent choice. It's a bankrupt belief, and yes, it's a form of religion too, and devoid of hope or any basis for morality. Its adherents have been duped into "imagining" that there's no God, no Heaven, no Hell. This book is about putting imagination behind and facing reality - before it's too late.

On the lighter side, the book includes the Atheist Psychological Exam, Atheist Anti-Hypocrite Code, and a "Merry Solstice" greeting!

Some Online Articles by John Verderame

  • Significant Nothings addresses the question of extraterrestrial life and why our "place in the universe" isn't what really matters.
  • Why Should We Listen to You? asks the question: If you're an "expert" who considers the Earth and humanity unimportant, then why is anything YOU have to say important?
  • The 'Evidence' for a Biblical Worldview addresses the fact that rarely will someone be convinced by "evidence" because we all have biases in our own interpretations of the evidence.

THINK About It!

B. Franklin, Printer
(Like the Cover of an Old Book
Its Contents torn Out
And Stript of its Lettering and Gilding)
Lies Here, Food for Worms.
But the Work shall not be Lost;
For it will (as he Believ'd) Appear once More
In a New and More Elegant Edition
Revised and Corrected
By the Author.

{The epitaph of Benjamin Franklin, just one more of those individuals who didn't really accomplish much because he believed in God.}
While it may be true that many scientists past and present believe(d) in God, scientists don't have a corner on the intelligence market by any means. Are there no intelligent people in other professions who also believe? Of course there are, so let's hear from you!
Many people complain that religions are just out for money. Has anyone complained about all the money some Atheists are making off something they claim doesn't even exist? Many of the major Atheist websites have a "donate" button. I can't help but ask myself exactly what the donor is getting for his or her money! If you want, I'll be happy to tell you you're a nobody whose life is without any real purpose, and I'll do it for free!
God-haters insinuate that if we did away with "religion," wars, strife and destruction would cease. Not only is that naive, it is a blatant denial of fact, history, and truth. More people have been killed and more destruction has been wrought in the last century by political enemies, regimes like Nazism that were fueled by the Evolution myth, and Atheistic governments that tried to eradicate God from their societies, than in all the religious wars from the beginning of history. You've heard that "guns don't kill, people do?" Well, "religion" doesn't kill either. Atheists just haven't come to grips with where the REAL problem lies. Time to get the mirror out.

How Many Starving Could Star Wars Feed?

Nothing against movies. No sir. But I can't help but ask: If a church managed to coax a half billion dollars out of the public's pockets like Star Wars did worldwide this weekend, well, do you think anyone would have anything negative to say about that? A half BILLION dollars for a few minutes of mindless entertainment, but who's complaining?

Merry Christmas to all, and don't forget that Jesus doesn't care how much you spend at the local mall. He wants you to receive His free gift of salvation. The Star of Bethlehem came quietly. No "force." No war. Just the quiet birth of the Prince of Peace and the King of Kings. The Savior of sinful mankind.

However, when He returns as the Judge of those who refuse to repent of their sins He will make Star Wars look tame as He crushes the forces of evil under His feet.

The Star of Bethlehem : What It Was NOT

This time of year, sooner or later we'll see an article somewhere that will assure us that the "scientific" explanation for the Star of Bethlehem is that it was either a comet, a conjunction of planets (where two or more planets appear 'close' in the sky) or a supernova. Which means scientists really don't know what it was and are straining to come up with a naturalistic explanation to once again denigrate the Bible. Unfortunately sometimes Bible believers even fall for this stuff.

The Star of Bethlehem was not a natural phenomenon for a number of reasons.

First, apparently only the Magi saw it. There is no indication that anyone else was aware of the Star. If it was a celestial phenomenon, others would have seen it too, but there is no record that they did. The Magi saw it "in the east" (or, "when it rose') and there's no indication that it led them westward. The Bible only mentions - twice - that they saw it "in the east."

Second, the Magi were apparently expecting the Star. You can't predict the appearance of a supernova, and most comets are "new" and unpredicted phenomena too; few are regular visitors, and even those have very lengthy time spans between appearances, and comet periodicity was not a known quantity in the days of the Magi. Conjunctions can be predicted, but the Bible says it was a "star," using a singular noun, not "stars" (planets were included with stars in the Bible, a reference to their appearance, not their substance. The Greeks were the first to refer to "planetes" or wandering stars because of their motion with reference to other stars).

Next was the behavior of the Star. After it appeared to the Magi they went to Jerusalem and basically asked directions and were told the One they were looking for was to be born in Bethlehem. The star had disappeared, but then it reappeared and led them south to Bethlehem. No natural celestial object demonstrates that kind of behavior or motion (movement from north to south).

Finally, the "star" stood over the house where Jesus was abiding. (Note "house," not manger. Jesus may have been up to two years old at the time of the Magi's visit.) If a real star stood over a house, both it and the entire planet beneath it would be burned to a crisp in no time. And there is no way that a star or planet could be said to be over any one particular house. If you look up and see a star above your house, it'll be above your neighbor's house and everybody else's house within a hundred mile radius too at the same time. The star clearly indicated the correct house by stopping right above it. Oh, and it didn't blind or burn the Magi either.

So the Star of Bethlehem was not a star in the sense that Vega or Sirius or Aldebaran are stars. It was not a planet. It was not two planets. It was not a comet.

It was a miraculous phenomenon, not to be repeated, so please let's just accept it as such and stop looking for a "natural" explanation. There is none.

YOU'RE RIGHT. GOD ISN'T FIXING THIS!

The New York Daily News blasted Republican candidates for their responses to the massacre of 14 people in California by smearing "God Isn't Fixing This" across its front page, along with comments from the candidates asking for "prayer" for the victims and their families.

No doubt that will sell plenty of newspapers. After all, if we can just blame God for the evil in the world, that makes us feel better about ourselves, doesn't it? I recall being in the apartment of a young man who had the front page of another newspaper hanging on his wall. That headline referred to the September 11 massacre, and in huge letters just said, "WHY, GOD?"

Well, I have a more truthful, appropriate headline for the Daily News:

"MAN ISN'T LISTENING"

If you want God to "fix" things, the first thing YOU have to do is LISTEN to what He says. How about this for starters:

"THOU SHALT NOT KILL"

If man doesn't want to hear what God has to say, how does that make GOD culpable when man commits a heinous act? And if our society sanctions this kind of behavior by first of all sensationalizing it, secondly glorifying "outlaws," thirdly coming up with all sorts of psychological excuses for the perpetrators of evil, fourthly delaying the consequences by long, drawn-out, expensive court trials, fifthly not obeying God's edict that "whosoever sheds man's blood, by man will his blood be shed" (i.e., capital punishment for capital offenses), and finally offering some criminals a better life IN prison than they'd have in the outside world, then we reap the consequences.

I believe that the rampant chaos, turmoil, destruction and death that we're seeing more and more of in this world is evidence that God is withdrawing His hand from the world, just like in the days of Noah, when God said, "My spirit will not strive with man forever..." Then came the judgment.

God reaches out to us and we slap His hand to the side. Why doesn't the Daily News tell us all about the positive things ATHEISTS are doing to make the world a better place? They can pray to themselves and ask themselves for help, I guess. How about "GOD HATERS AREN'T FIXING THIS" for a headline?

Go ahead and have your say. Blame God. But be ready when you see Him to take a little blame yourself. Because if you have not surrendered to Him and if you are not willing to accept His word, then YOU are guilty of not accepting the fix that He DID provide for the evil in this world, and you WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE.

So yes, if you want to fix the world's problems, prayer is the place to begin. Start by praying that God would fix YOUR problems. You don't ask, you don't receive. As Michael Jackson would have said, you need to look at "the man in the mirror" first.

Now THAT's Using the Old Atheist Noodle!

Well, this one was just too "full of holes" to resist. A Massachusetts woman, Lindsay Miller, has won the right (?) to wear a pasta colander (strainer) on her head in her driver license photo. And what noble cause is she trumpeting? Is it a protest against burkas? Does she think she can outdo SETI by contacting aliens?

No. You see, she's an "intellectual atheist" as Richard Dawkins might say, who belongs to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, a loose group of God-haters who claim there's as much evidence for the existence of the FSM as there is of God.

Well, I'll bet God's up there biting His nails right this moment, worried that these "smart folks" who claim their beliefs are backed by "hard" (read: al dense-te) science, are gonna dethrone Him for sure.

Well I, for one, support Mzzz Miller 100 percent! What better object could she have placed over her brain container than a SIEVE? What symbolizes the thickness of the Atheist skull better than a hard, non-expanding metallic bowl? Seeing her with that on her head immediately evokes a vision of intellectualism, erudition, and the advancement of human knowledge, as far as I'm concerned!

Miller is encouraging her fellow "Pastafarians" (aren't they clever?) to do as she has. After all, if you were a police officer who stopped her for speeding, you might look at the photo and say, "Holy linguini, Batman! This is one smart cookie and I'll bet she's gonna outsmart me on this ticket, too! I guess I'd better let her go!"

Now, in all seriousness, Mzzz Miller and her fellow lasagna worshipers have boiled all their knowledge down and understand that 15 minutes of fame is worth risking an eternity of flame, and we're not talking boiling salted water either. No doubt they have hard scientific proof that God doesn't exist and that when they die they'll just rot away like an old can of SpaghettiOs, even though He's feeding, clothing, and caring for them, not to mention the minor point of offering them eternal salvation while they mock Him. Ask them what "evidence" they'd expect to find to demonstrate that God DOES exist, and you'll see the sieve go into action as they selectively ignore reality.

Yes, Pastafarians, I'm ready to join your club, but can I wear a pizza pan instead? After all, your beliefs are stupid no matter how you slice 'em.
