The Atheist Delusion

  ==> A Suggestion

Having to prove the existence of God to an atheist is like having to prove the existence of the sun, at noon on a clear day. Yet millions are embracing the foolishness of atheism. “The Atheist Delusion” pulls back the curtain and reveals what is going on in the mind of those who deny the obvious. It introduces you to a number of atheists who you will follow as they go where the evidence leads, find a roadblock, and enter into a place of honesty that is rarely seen on film.

From Living Waters, creators of the award-winning TV program “The Way of the Master” and the hit movies “180” and “Evolution vs. God,” comes the powerful film “The Atheist Delusion.” Executive produced by TV co-host and best-selling author Ray Comfort (Hell’s Best Kept Secret, Scientific Facts in the Bible).

Key concepts in the presentation above were: 1) the impossibly of the creation of the universe as a whole out of nothing via chance; 2) the impossibility of first life arising of its own accord; and 3) the obvious design of the universe, which atheists claim is not real but only “apparent.” Three presentations on The C.S. Lewis Study Group’s site address these ideas which we would like to invite you to join as we consider these concerns.

To address the 1st issue, you will have noticed that the message conveyed above in The Atheist Delusion was expressed in lay terms, in the language of common sense made in an appeal to the light of reason reflected in our being created in the image of God. We would like to invite those interested in extending this kind of reason to an argument expressed with a bit more philosophical rigor. We would invite you to ponder 

presented by the late Dr. R.C. Sproul. The notion of the possibility of creation out from nothing is placed under a magnifying glass, among other things.

The Cosmological Argument for God’s Existence

From Ray Comfort’s book ==> Nothing Created Everything

To address both issues 2 and 3 we would suggest a presentation by  ==> Dr. James Tour synthetic-organic chemist–who speaks to us on the impossibility of first life arising up out of the kind of primordial soup that many an atheist would have us believe possible, and then to go from there and have us accept this as an established fact.

To place us within imaginary grasp of what Dr. Tour is attempting to explain in the video above I thought it might be helpful to consider a quote from William Grassie as he in turn is found quoting Bill Bryson as he gives a description of ==> a simple prokaryotic cell from his book A Short History of Nearly Everything.

We would like to invite you to ponder a sermon from the pulpit of Watermark Community Church in Dallas titled ==> Are You a Fool for Believing in God? delivered for Easter services by senior pastor Todd Wagner in the wake of the passing of renowned theoretical physicist, cosmologist and Atheist Stephen Hawking.

                We are each free to believe what we want and it is my view that the simplest explanation is there is no God. No one created the universe and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization. There is probably no heaven, and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe, and for that, I am extremely grateful  .  .  .  

           . . . Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation. What I meant by ‘we would know the mind of God’ is, we would know everything that God would know, if there were a God, which there isn’t. I’m an atheist.

Dr. Sproul is a site philosopher with a page dedicated to his contributions as a Christian Apologist. To hear how theologians and philosophers get from the God of the philosophers (as was delineated in the audio file above) to the God of the Bible, we invite you to join us at R.C.’s page to hear the next lecture in this series at ==> R.C. Sproul. Refer to the 2nd soundbar embedded in the page; the 1st soundbar is The Cosmological Argument for God’s Existence listed above.

For those of you who would like an extended meditation on these issues I have added the YouTube below that features Eric Metaxas’ and the return of the God Hypotheses with biologist/philosopher Stephen Myers on science and the beginning and origin of the world; the ultimate mystery of the universe as drawn from recent scientific discoveries in physics, cosmology, and biology. The interview took place at the Dallas Conference on Science and Faith, sponsored by the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture, in January 2019.
