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!

  • 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!

(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

{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.

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.

America Fiddles While Rome Burns

Islamic terrorists are expanding their reach around the world, and what are Americans doing?

Celebrating perverted sexual unions.

This nation is going to Hell on a greased sliding board. Are we so stupid as to think our end will not be the same as past nations who have sunk into cesspools of immorality?

Taking a Stand on Gay Marriage

Ronnie Floyd, President of the Southern Baptist Convention, took a vocal and apparently pretty fiery stand against gay marriage, stating that the Supreme Court is not the final authority on the matter, but rather God's word is, and he's willing to face the consequences if it comes down to a question of having to obey human government and man-made rules, or God's established laws.

I thank God there are people like him who are strong enough to take a vocal public stand on this matter. As he and others have intimated, this issue is going to have a huge impact on religious freedom, not to mention families and children. As far as I'm concerned, same-sex parenting is child abuse. You're using children for your own selfish ends, as a social experiment. There's no way a child with same-sex parents would not be confused about where they really came from and who were their REAL parents. I realize that there have always been cases, such as orphans, where this has been an issue, but those instances are not usually someone playing deliberate social games, or forcing society to accept perverted social behaviors.

People have lost jobs, businesses, and liberties for not capitulating to society's whims and the wiles of those who "call good evil and evil good," who pervert normal human relationships and are so confused that some can't even figure out what sex they are.

As Floyd said, this is a "Bonhoeffer moment," and he quoted the great theologian as having said,

"Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act."

Naturally, those who call evil good are already painting Floyd as promoting hate and homophobia. And naturally, they excuse their own hatred of God, God's word, and God's people, and they couldn't care less about anybody but themselves and their own agenda. The agenda of the Southern Baptists is to see people get saved and have a loving relationship with their heavenly Father. I attended a huge SB church for years, and they were some of the most wonderful, loving, giving, genuine Christians I've ever met. Their concern is for OTHERS, not themselves. Homosexuals, lesbians, transgenders, and whatever else is out there, true Christians want you to get saved and go to Heaven.

Carbon-14 in Dinosaur Bones

Depending on what source you read, the carbon-14 dating method should not be able to be used to date anything older than about 50,000 years. So obviously it would not be the first method of choice to date dinosaur bones, if we believe in the conventional millions of years baloney.

However, there are people in this world who don't follow the herd. They think for themselves. They swim against the tide. Some of them are Creationist scientists, and they don't accept baloney if it's not in their sandwiches.

One of the contributors to the Discussion forum on this website posted this link to an excellent article about carbon-14 that is found in dino bones, demonstrating that they are not, in fact, millions of years old.

Carbon-14 Found in Dinosaur Bone

Now, every dating method has its flaws, and C-14 dating is no more "exact" than any other dating method, but the fact that C-14 should not be found in dino bones if they are millions of years old is what's at issue here.

Naturally, the Evodeluded fanatic believers are going to cry, "Contamination!" That is, that the dino bone samples were contaminated with C-14 that leached into them. And the Evodeluded will line up and pay homage to their myth, which has once again been saved from the evil Creation-mongers.

However, what happens when a Creationist confronts an Evolutionist who insists that a rock he's dated is BILLIONS of years old, and has somehow managed, after all that time, to not be contaminated in any way? That is, suppose a Creationist says that the rock originally contained some lead, so that not all the lead in the rock is the result of uranium decay, but rather part of it was there when the rock formed, or else the lead leached into the rock from some other source (I'm using U-Pb decay just as a basic example; it could apply to any dating method).

Well, we all know that if a Creationist cries "Contamination!" it's because he's either not a REAL scientist, or he doesn't know what he's talking about, or he's just ignorant of the fact that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago, and that's that.

There is no such thing as an unbiased human being, and that includes scientists. Soft tissues, blood traces, and C-14 have now been found in dinosaur bones (and other organic fossils), yet the Evodeluded will continue to defend the mythology regardless of the facts.

You might call it "truth contamination."
