Atheism is Illogical Faith in NOTHING. Christianity is Faith in Jesus Christ.

Newsflash:  My efforts to raise $6,000 for marketing “Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead!” ends today.  See the results at https://igg.me/at/W3MDD

The question of moral absolutes is a source of contrast between Atheism and Christianity. On morality, Atheists say: “Atheism does not lead inevitably to any particular moral position…”  They insist on a relative view of morals.  For example, “What’s right in one circumstance is wrong in another.” OR “Abortion is desirable in some circumstances,” OR “The taking of a human life can be justified if it serves a useful purpose.”  Relativistic morality is a hallmark of Atheism. That Atheist then declares unequivocally, ” There is no God.” That is an absolute statement. It implies personal omniscience or infinite knowledge.  So now we come to the Atheist’s problem: morals are relative, but declaration “there is no God” is absolute. This relativism and absolute conflict are a contradiction of the highest order. You can’t have it both ways! As Mr. Spock would say, “That’s illogical!” Or Data, the android in Star Trek, would say, “That doesn’t compute!” Atheism is a unresolvable contradiction and defies logic.

Here’s a conversation with an atheist.

Charlie: “Are there moral absolutes in the universe like the Ten Commandments?”

Atheist: “Of course not. All moral judgments are dependent on society’s conditions.”

Charlie: “Is there a God?”

Atheist: “No! I say that with certainty, absolutely not!”

Charlie: “So when it comes to morality, there are no absolutes, but you make the absolute statement ‘There is no God.’ You can’t have it both ways: absolute and relative. Atheism is a contradiction in the highest order. If you are going to be consistent with your logic, the best an Atheist can be is Agnostic!  Atheism itself is a logical contradiction!”

Wow. That usually gets a strong reaction, occasionally with anger. The logical flaw in the Atheist worldview has been found out, and they don’t like it. Because they know there is no way to explain or justify it, their only recourse is to create a smokescreen.

Here are some questions I ask atheists to provoke them to think about their worldview.

  • If there is no God, then why does it matter to you if anyone believes in Jesus?
  • Why does my belief in Jesus distress you so much?
  • Don’t I have the freedom to believe what I want to?
  • Why does it make you so angry I believe in God?
  • If he doesn’t exist, why does it matter?
  • If there is no God what’s your point?

One more challenge: “In the history of the Christian church, many rulers, philosophers, kings, etc. have tried to destroy Christianity. They have even, at times, declared it dead. Why, after many centuries, haven’t they succeeded?”  In history, the more persecution of Christian believers, the more rapidly the church has grown. Why is this? The logical explanation is Christianity is true. The more some try to destroy it; the more God preserves it. If Christianity is not true, then there is no point in trying to eradicate it. Leave it alone; it should just go out of fashion and disappear.

Can you help me attack belief in EVOLUTION?

On Wednesday, September 6, I announced my campaign to promote my newest book “Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead!”  It challenges Evolution at its core, SCIENCE. It’s published and ready for market but to promote the book I need $6,000 for marketing.  Because I’m retired, I’ve decided to crowdfund to raise this money.  This book has the potential to change many minds about the viability of Evolution because “Science Proves Atheistic Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE!”  In this book, I expose Evolution’s scientific impossibility because it violates three scientific laws to succeed; the First and Second laws of Thermodynamics and the Law of Biogenesis.  Help me attack the belief in Evolution by joining my campaign.  My campaign starts September 15, but I’m looking for some friends to commit to making a contribution of $200 or more on the start date of 9/15 and add their name as part of my campaign team.  You’ll get a hard copy of the book as soon I get your confirmation.  The only other thing you will be asked to do is encourage others to contribute.  Will you help me by becoming a W3MDD Campaign Team Member? Say YES by Email to charlie@sixdaycreation.com

“Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead!” has the potential to change many minds about the viability of Evolution because as the subtitle says “Science Proves Atheistic Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE!”  I’ll expose Evolution’s scientific impossibility because it violates three scientific laws; the First and Second laws of Thermodynamics and the Law of Biogenesis.   For Evolution to break scientific laws, you need miracles, and Atheistic Evolution cannot allow any, much less THREE!  I call these three miracles: Magic, Frankenstein, and Uphill Molasses.  Magic is the appearance of something from nothing, a violation of the First Law.  Frankenstein is the generation of life from non-living chemicals which violates Biogenesis Law which says: “life ONLY comes from life and ONLY life of the same kind.  The 2nd Law states that the Universe is irreversibly running down.  Evolution is consistently gaining complexity in conflict with this law.  It’s like molasses running uphill against gravity.  I’m ready to present these arguments that destroy Evolution, but I need help to start marketing.  Will you help me?  After the campaign begins, September 15, I’m offering incentives for contributions over $25.  At $25 you receive a downloadable copy of the e-book.  At $50 you get a copy of the softcover edition and at $150 a hardback copy.  A $500 contribution will get you soft cover copies of all three of my published books, and at $1000 you receive hardback copies of all three books.  In bearing testimony for Christ, through my web page, and in my role as a seminar and workshop leader and as a teacher I’m often asked: “Do you believe in Evolution?” I answer: “No I don’t!” Then I get responses like: “Why not, it’s proven by science?” OR “The evidence for it is overwhelming!” OR “Only ignorant or closed-minded fundamentalists don’t believe it!”  I even get that kind of reaction from some who call themselves Christians.

Science Cannot Prove Evolution is True!

To apply science to Creation or Evolution, we must separate science into two kinds, Operational and Historical. Operational science (OS) observes nature 1) in the present: 2) seeing how things work and 3) bringing the new technology of great benefit to humanity. Historical Science (HS) looks at current knowledge, including both operational science and history, in an attempt to reconstruct the past. CSI agents examine a crime scene with operational science, fingerprints, DNA, dead bodies, weapons, etc. and then try to reconstruct the events that occurred to show a particular perpetrator is guilty. If they are good, they guess correctly, but there is no guarantee. The state brings the evidence (OS results) to a jury to see if they get a unanimous verdict. Sometimes the state gets a conviction, and sometimes an acquittal. If the jury can’t agree on a verdict, the case may go to trial again. This pursuit of justice uses the adversary concept that, if a group of impartial observers looks at the evidence, they will come to the correct decision. The raw data, from OS, is sure, but its interpretation into the past (HS) is a guess and may be modified if there’s new data. Suddenly, in mid-trial, a truthful eyewitness is found. Now the jury knows with more certainty what happened. This witness gives us a true view of the past while HS is much less reliable. Since science is made up of knowledge and facts, Historical Science is not science because it is neither fact nor knowledge. HS is an individual’s interpretation of facts and knowledge.

What does this say? GODISNOWHERE. Since there are no spaces, we will have to interpret it. Does it say GOD IS NOWHERE, or GOD IS NOW HERE? We have incomplete evidence, the lack of spaces, so we must try to interpret the message. Different people look at the same evidence and come to different conclusions. It’s not a matter of scientific data; it’s how they see it from their perspective.

Creationists and evolutionists have the same evidence: biology, geology, astronomy, etc. Each side looks at the same evidence and comes to opposite conclusions. Why? Each person has a different worldview and set of presuppositions. For example, an atheist can never accept Creation because it requires God, and his absolute presupposition is “there is no God.” A Christian, on the other hand, can consider either origin model because we have no conflicting presuppositions. Therefore, Christians are more open-minded than atheists. Tell that to one of them and see what happens. BOOM!

In determining past events, science has three limitations. 1) Science is in the present, and any attempt to apply it to the past is fraught with uncertainty. 2) Science can only explore the material world, and any questions beyond materiality can’t be answered. 3) The past is the third barrier. We don’t have a time machine to go back and look at what happened. So how can we know? An eyewitness to the events could tell us what happened. That is what we have in the Bible—an eyewitness account of what occurred in the past, which tells us God created in six days! http://wp.me/p6OUE6-7A

The Absolute Laws of Science Refute Atheism and Materialism.

You’ve heard Your Atheist, Humanist or Materialist relative or friend say: “I only believe in what I can see. Faith is for fools! The only reality is the material world. There is no supernatural! Everything is relative! There are no absolutes!”

Our world is full of people that deny the supernatural. They make explicit statements about the world and act as if they were questions because they are looking for a response from us.   In the last two weeks, we explored immaterial opposites and history to demonstrate that people who claim they only believe in the material world believe in many things that can’t be sensed. Today we’ll look at the third of these, non-material arguments, absolute scientific laws.

Absolute Scientific Laws

I: “I only believe in what I can see. My five senses tell me all I need to and can know. There is no supernatural; only the material world exists. Faith in something you can’t see is foolish.”

Me: “Do you believe in gravity, the laws of aerodynamics, or thermodynamics?”

I: (Affirms.)

Me: “Do these laws change?”

I: “I don’t know.”

Me: “Have you ever seen them change or know of any time or place they did?”

I: “No.”

Me: “Then we can accept they don’t change. These laws are absolute. The universe has some scientific laws that don’t change.”

I: “But there may be a place in the universe where they do change.”

Me: “That’s an argument from silence and is faulty logic. You are begging the question!”

I: “Okay, there are laws about the physical universe that don’t change.”

Me: There are also rules of morality that don’t change, as we saw above when we talked about justice last week. Your belief that everything is relative is false. There are absolutes in both the physical world and in morality. You agree to believe in things that can’t be sensed, you accept the testimony of others about events you didn’t experience, and the now you agree the universe contains absolutes that are always true. Your view of a purely materialistic reality is false. What you believe about the world isn’t true! None of the things you said you consider to be true are true. You have a worldview that is inconsistent, illogical, and false. I say with confidence; you need to find real answers to your view of reality. My Christian worldview is real, and demonstrable and it contains good news and bad news. First, the bad news: There is a God, who created all things, sustains all things and brings justice to all things. That justice carries a sentence that includes your death and condemnation. No human can escape death! You’re lost and without hope when you stand before that just God! Now the good news: God has provided a way to satisfy his justice, not by anything you can do, but by believing that Jesus paid the debt you could not pay by dying on the cross. Reconciliation to God takes place when you put your trust in Jesus.

Atheists, Agnostics and Materialists have FAITH because they believe in things they can’t sense. Immaterial Opposites

Immaterial Opposites

Last week I introduced the concept that even the staunchest faith denier believes in things that are beyond their senses. Immaterial Opposites is one. Here’s dialogue to illustrate.

Atheist Inquirer: I only believe in what I can see. My five senses tell me all I need to and can know. There is no supernatural; only the material world exists. Faith in something you can’t see is foolish.

Me: So, you only believe in things in the world you can see, hear, feel, smell, or taste? Do you believe in darkness?

AI: Of course.

Me: There is no such thing as darkness. Darkness is the absence of light, but it does not exist by itself. How about the wind? Do you believe in the wind?

AI: Of course.

Me: The wind itself can’t isn’t seen; only its effects. Do you believe in cold? Cold is the absence of heat and is defined by heat. We measure temperature as heat; there is no scale to measure cold, just heat or lack of it.

AI: Many possible responses.

Me: How about good and evil? Neither one can be measured or sensed, but we know it when we see it. How do we know? Is there a human conscience?

AI: Many possible responses. (At some point in this dialogue he/she is going to ask, “Where are you going with this?” or “You are frustrating me.” So now put the pieces together.)

Me: So you do believe in many things you can’t sense. Darkness and cold are descriptions of opposites of things we can measure. We observe the effect of wind, and can measure it, but don’t see it. Evil is the absence of good, but what’s the source of good? Is morality written inside of us?

Me: A person is a professional thief. He earns his wealth by stealing from others. Now you take his wallet. How does he react? ‘Hey, what’s wrong with you? You took my wallet! That’s not right.’ What? You steal for a living, but if I steal from you it’s wrong? Why are my stealing wrong and yours okay? Yes, morality has absolute standards.

Your children do something wrong so, you confront them. They immediately look guilty but fabricate excuses or lie to escape consequences. The Family Circus cartoon depicts this behavior with the semi-invisible character “Not Me.” If you deal with children, you know all about “Not Me.”

If you accept the concept of evil, you also accept justice. Bad behavior deserves punishment. Is your behavior just the response of chemistry and electricity in your brain? What is the source of those moral ideas? The Bible teaches that every person has a built-in conscience that knows right from wrong and will bring guilt when violated. Good and evil is another immaterial concept you know and accept. Even the staunchest materialist has to accept many intangible things that can be defined but not sensed or measured. Immaterial Opposites is the first of the three flaws in materialism’s beliefs. Next week, Historical Narratives.

Atheism, Humanism & Materialism are Foolish, Everyone Believes in Things Beyond Their 5 Senses!!

These next four weekly blogs I’m going to take the gloves off to deal with those that deny the supernatural and hold that the material world is all of reality. The material in this blog is from the first chapter in my book ANSWERS For “The Hope That Is In You.”

You’ve heard Your Atheist, Humanist or Materialist relative or friend say:

“I only believe in what I can see. Faith is for fools! The only reality is the material world. There is no supernatural! Everything is relative! There are no absolutes!”

Our world is full of people that deny the supernatural. They make explicit statements about the world and act as if they were questions because they are looking for a response from the hearer. These statements are easy to answer and often provide an opportunity to present the gospel. These kinds of materialist declarations challenge Christians to spar verbally. Don’t shy away from these statements; they give you an opportunity to share the Gospel.

In the United States today there are many people, even in church, who believe these imperatives of Atheism, Agnosticism, Humanism, Materialism, and Marginal Christianity.   I describe all of these worldviews in “Worldviews and Religions” from the book Always Be Ready to Give an Answer!

There are three separate arguments to counter these beliefs: 1) immaterial opposites, 2) historical narratives and 3) absolute scientific laws. I’ll cover all three in the next weeks, showing these unbelievers how many things they believe on faith.

After I’ve presented these arguments I’ll say: “You’ve conceded 1) you believe in things you can’t sense, 2) you accept the testimony of others about events you did not experience, and 3) the universe contains absolutes that are always true. You view of reality has been falsified. What you believe about the world isn’t true! You have a worldview that is inconsistent, illogical, and false. You need to find actual answers to your view of reality. My Christian worldview is real, demonstrable, and absolute and contains good news and bad news. First, the bad news: There is a God, who created all things, sustains all things and brings justice to all things. That sentence upon all humankind includes your death and condemnation. You cannot escape death! ALL men DIE! You are lost and without hope when you stand before the justice of God! Now the good news: God has provided a way to satisfy his justice, not by anything you can do, but by believing that Jesus paid the debt you could not pay by dying in your place. Reconciliation to God happens when you put your trust in Jesus.”

Next week we’ll look in depth at the first of these arguments, Immaterial Opposites.

Some critics of these arguments will say: “Don’t call us fools!” My answer is I am only repeating God’s assessment of your worldview. Psalm 14:1 “The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt; they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good.”

Relativistic education without absolutes is fatal to learning.

“Humanist Manifesto II,” promoted by John Dewey, is the foundation for US public education. Children in public schools are taught every subject based on Humanist presuppositions. Here are two examples where language/reading and mathematics remove absolutes and put relativism in its place.:

1) Using phonics to teach language starts with the absolutes—letters and sounds—and progresses to the relative—words and sentence formation. The look/say method begins with the relative and does not build a foundation of letters, so reading skills never fully develop. Look/say readers are frequently poorer readers than those taught by phonics. The absolute has to come before the relative because that’s how God designed it. As a child develops speech, he or she starts with sounds. Listening to a baby test his or her vocals is always interesting. We don’t expect them to begin with words. Word and sentence formation come after the sound development of the letters.

2) In mathematics, particularly Common Core, problem-solving methods are taught with little or no time spent on the mechanics of numbers. The absolutes in math are the numbers and their relationships: adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. Common Core starts with the relative and never teaches the absolutes of the basics of number structure. If you were born before the middle of the twentieth century, you probably remember memorizing the multiplication tables which, along with addition and subtraction, are the absolutes that build the math system all the way to calculus. Without the foundation of numbers and how they function, the mind won’t ever “get it.” Math becomes a mystery instead of a problem-solving tool. As a parent, look at the Common Core math-teaching materials: number lines, unnecessarily complicated calculations, etc. I could go on with more issues in science, history, and other subjects, but these two examples are enough to illustrate the point that learning and knowledge are always built on a foundation of absolutes.

There are many Christian teachers in public schools that base their teaching on Christian principles, but the “official” line is Humanism. In the 1970s I taught summer sessions on Biblical Creation at the NC Governor’s School, which is a summer program for top rising High School seniors, whose purpose is to “provoke critical thinking in students.” In year 4, I took a poll asking students: “Who believes in some form of Creation?” and about half raised their hands. This opportunity ended abruptly when several humanist teachers in the room saw half the hands go up for Creation. My contact person, a Christian, later told me the ones that ran the program were very upset because I had so many convincing arguments for Creation and against Evolution. It was evident to me that in public schools you could only teach according to humanist presuppositions, so much for the First Amendment in education. Presenting only one side of any axiom, like Evolution destroys critical thinking in students and makes “political correctness” the result. They become advocates for Evolution, without any reason or foundation for their beliefs.
