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.

Stephen Hawking Looking for ET

Stephen Hawking is teaming up with a Russian billionaire to look for extraterrestrial life. According to Hawking, there is no bigger question than whether ET exists, and it's only going to cost $100 million to find out. A bargain at today's ET-search prices. (Apparently SETI isn't spending enough and hasn't done enough in 40 years of looking.)

I'd like to suggest to Mr. Hawking that there are some WAY bigger questions, and I will herewith provide the answers - for FREE. However, if he wants to pass along a few bucks from the ET piggybank for a nice steak dinner, I won't complain.

  1. Does God exist?
  2. Where are you going when you die?

I would suggest to anyone reading this, if you have not already done so, you can go to a local church or some Christian you know, and I'm sure they'd give you a Bible - for FREE.

You can read that Bible (for FREE) and it will tell you about God.

You will see in that Bible that you are a sinner in need of a savior, and it's not going to be ET.

You will then see that God provided that Savior in Jesus Christ, because, rather than wasting time looking for ET so you can have a long-distance relationship with him, her, or it, God wants to have a close relationship with you NOW. And all it will cost you is to "believe" Him, rather than Stephen Hawking or any other fallible human being.

You will also see that your salvation is a FREE gift from God, because Christ paid the price, and $100 million dollars wouldn't do it because you can't buy salvation. He paid with His LIFE.

It's all FREE. You'll find out God exists, how to have a relationship with him, and why you don't need to be looking to the heavens for some pie-in-the-sky fictitious creature who's going to have all the answers, and wasting a sinful amount of money doing so.

Now Let's Restore Pluto to Planet Status!

Ok, there are bigger issues in the world, but for those of us who grew up with Pluto being the ninth planet (and those of us who cared), it was a tough pill to swallow when it was demoted to "dwarf planet" status, whatever that means.

If it looks like a planet, moves like a planet, and was doing just fine as a planet, then let's call it a planet! And so far the New Horizons spacecraft seems to be returning images that look an awful lot like a planet!

I've been a big fan of Pluto and its discoverer, Clyde Tombaugh, since I was a starry-eyed kid with a little 2.5-inch reflecting telescope. When I read the book, The Search for Planet X, that's what really got me started being a diehard Pluto lover. Pluto's kind of the outcast of the Solar System, with an erratic orbit and all, so maybe I felt sorry for it or something.

Visiting Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona as an adult and seeing the actual machinery that Tombaugh used (a "blink comparator" through which he viewed thousands of photos) to discover the planet just added fuel to the Pluto fire for me. What an incredible organ the human eye is, to be able to pick out that tiny spot in one photo and notice that it had moved a little bit as Tombaugh "blinked" back and forth between photos.

That makes me appreciate God all the more, too - the one who created the eye and created human beings who could then turn around and create a machine that could work in tandem with the incredible celestial mechanics the Creator set in place and send their creation to His creation to discover more about what He has made in this universe.

It's unfortunate that so many scientists and others have magnified man to god status, and depreciated God to "dwarf" status, while at the same time claiming that the universe humbles man into insignificance. There's a bit of irony there that I think is lost on most people.

It's also ironic that, as one commenter said after an article on the subject, we feel the need to explore the universe in order to "save" humanity from extinction. In other words, we need to find other places where we can go so we can ruin them and trash them like we've done with the Earth. We simply fail to see that the human heart is not going to be any different on the moon or Mars - or Pluto - than it is on Earth.

But, not to spoil the fun, congratulations to NASA and the team that accomplished this feat. Now, back to that "planet" issue...

Ray Comfort Causing some DIScomfort - Again

Ray Comfort and friends have come out (no pun intended) with a new and timely movie, "Audacity," which confronts the question of whether homosexuals and lesbians are "born that way." Apparently it's already made enough of an impact that the movie trailer has been removed by YouTube because it allegedly contains "spam, scams and commercially deceptive content."

(Update: As of the evening of June 6 the trailer is available on YouTube. Whether it's the same one that was pulled, I do not know. -- John)

I trust that many of us, myself included, are now curious enough to find out about it. I also trust that this will be yet another Ray Comfort bombshell, just like his movies "180," which addressed abortion, and "God vs Evolution" were. Here's more from WorldNetDaily:

YouTube Removes Movie Trailer 'Because of Religion'

One Christian's View of Gay Marriage

I've already heard everything ranging from calling down hellfire to wishy-washy acceptance of the new Supreme Court ruling on homosexual marriage, so I'd like to present what I hope is a balanced, firm response.

First, I do not believe that fire and brimstone are going to rain down on America in the next few days. That's up to God, of course, but not His usual methodology. Judgment will come, that is certain, but it is not our duty as Christians to call down hellfire like the disciples did in Luke 9:54-56. God is patient. In Noah's day, while Noah preached to his wicked generation (2 Peter 2:5), God got to the point where He said, "My spirit will not strive with man forever..." He waited 120 years for man to repent, then brought the judgment that destroyed the world. We can only imagine what Noah and his family endured - mocking, criticism, threats and so on, during that time.

Second, homosexuals can outwardly appear to be "good" people. So many times I've heard someone comment that they know gay people and have gay friends, and they're nice, polite, upstanding citizens, etc. ANYONE, be they atheist, homosexual, pedophile, adulterer, child abuser, thief, drug purveyor, you name it, can appear to be a "good person" outwardly. Even Satan appears as an "angel of light" and preaches his fake, lovey-dovey messages. The road to Hell is paved with "good" people. Know why? Because God knows what goes on behind closed doors and in closed hearts. In Romans 3:9 and following, GOD says that NO ONE is good. NO ONE is righteous. That's why He died on the cross. "Good people" crucified Him! And God knows who hates Him too, though they may hide it outwardly, and they're certainly not going to be invited to His Party in Paradise. They may be partying now, but their candle will be blown out soon enough.

Third, though we are all sinners, separated from God and in need of God's salvation, all sin is not equal. What we are seeing here is open, blatant acceptance and almost forced PROMOTION of sinful behavior as normal, and a good thing. So it should not be the case that we as Christians brush it off as "just another sin that can be forgiven." There is no shame, no embarrassment. We are calling evil "good." Let's be clear on one thing: You (homosexual) may call yourself "married," but God hasn't changed His mind. You're NOT married in His sight, so don't pretend that He accepts your verdict and say "God made me this way" and think He approves. He doesn't, and I believe in your heart you know that full well.

In the book of Genesis, God destroyed two cities for blatant, open homosexual sin. I've been told of one weak-kneed "pastor" (read: wolf in sheep's clothing) who said the real sin of Sodom was a "lack of hospitality." So, let's see: God looks down and sees that someone's not being real hospitable to his neighbor and the next thing you know He incinerates their city for it. I don't think so. In fact, God was even willing to "bargain" with Abraham (Genesis 18) to spare Sodom if Abraham could find just TEN righteous people in the whole city! The inference is, he could not. Once again, we see God's patience with mankind before He brings judgment.

Finally, yes, judgment will come. God calls homosexuality an abomination in Leviticus. Through Paul He says in Romans that homosexual behavior is the result of sinful desires, and calls it sexual impurity and the degrading of their bodies, shameful lusts, unnatural relations, indecent acts generated by depraved minds, and on and on. In Revelation it is clearly stated that the sexually immoral (those who have not been forgiven through faith in Christ) will be "outside" Heaven with the rest of evil, unforgiven humanity, in the lake of fire.

So, this is not just "another old sin that God can forgive," though of course, He can and will forgive those who sincerely repent. It is people who are laughing in God's face and who think they've won some kind of victory, and I believe God is using it to test Christians to see if they'll stand on His word this time. Many certainly have failed when it comes to the issue of Evolution or Creation. When we abandon Genesis as an historical, factual account, which would include abandonment of God's creation of marriage, this is where we end up.

Now it's time for a tougher test. Let's see how we do.
