I get tons of comments like the three below, and usually bin them, but occasionally post a few just to show how the faithful react to this website. Here are a couple of good ones for your Sunday delectation:
Surely the existence of multiverses would prove that God does exist.
Think about it.
If there is an infinite number of universes, then everything that can happen, does happen.
Therefore anything is possible including the existence of God.
I think Mike is conflating “logically possible” with “physically possible.”
Reader “Jeff Phelps” comments on my post, “Would it help if this person read my book?” a response to another antievolution rant:
So the intelligentsia fascists are at it again with their circular logic that defines the work of GOD as outside the realm of science so therefore it is not science. Nice little word game you play but you don’t fool me. I’ve been on your side and your side is full of holes. Of course you wouldn’t listen if I listed them so why bother? I just wanted to stop by and remind you to keep up your Fascist Local 666 dues. How dare anyone question the almighty “professor” (who professes to know what he’s talking about since we’re playing word games – he doesn’t fool most people). I do have to give you kudos for an astounding arrogance that boggles the imagination. How could any ego ever be more obsessed than to swear they know the secret to the creation of life itself. But we all know you don’t. You’re guessing and professing. That’s it.
I can run circles around you when it comes to logic but you’re so high on your own fumes that you wouldn’t listen if God Himself walked up and smacked you on the forehead and declared you to be a dummy.
But whatever I say will be pearls before swine. You can discredit the idea that your religion is just a religion all you want. You aren’t fooling anyone but the minions who have to parrot what you say to get a grade.
Come back when you’ve seen reality. You clearly haven’t or you wouldn’t be sticking to your dogmatic rendering of reality. When you see a miracle face to face you’ll know it. And wow have you ever missed the boat on that. All those fumes won’t change that fact and it is a FACT despite your childish game of “I’m rubber and you’re glue”. How much do you get paid to recite that 100 times a day anyway? Too much. I already knew the answer to that.
Miracles hot shot. When you see one your entire perspective will change. I can hear your disdain from 1000 miles away and two weeks into the future. You’re just so predictable it’s ridiculous. And you will be until you’ve seen your first miracle.
I know you don’t want to know mine but here goes anyway. I’m still alive 24 years after having stage 3 cancer after a “professor” professed that I would be dead in 6 months. In fact the entire professing union professed the chances of me surviving beyond a short time didn’t exist. Guess what? They don’t make those decisions.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Go back and read your Kierkegaard as if it would do you any good. You can’t see it from the outside. Through a glass darkly but one day face to face honcho. More than just prose or history. It’s called prophecy and I’ve seen that work too. But you wouldn’t even understand how signficant that is. Those fumes have pickled your brain.
And they call atheists arrogant??? Is every recovery from stage 3 cancer a miracle that proves God’s existence? I guess the larger number of people who succumb, including children, prove God’s maliciousness. But don’t worry, there aren’t any dues in “Fascist Local 666”.
And I just love the argument of reader “Alex”. It’s the best reader comment yet trying to make virtues from necessities.
Many of you apparently feel very comfortable being atheists. I sometimes wish I were one. Why? Mainly because I am like most of us not always willing to be responsible to a higher authority for my sinful actions.
The heavy opposition to the existence of God suggest that God exists.
The very existence of so much evil in the world points me to the necessary existence of a just God, who will ultimately bring to justice all those evil doers. Someone has to be held accountable for the 6 million jews during holocost, or 20 million during Stalins [sic] reign, or 40-50 million abortions (child murders) in the USA and the list goes on…
Our innate sense of justice and inner moral compass is to me one of the strongest evidences for God. Who doesn’t believe that raping children is very evil? or Slaughtering innocent people? Why do feel so outraged when such attrocities take place?
The very fact that many in the prosperous west are falling away from Christ demonstrates the truth of Jesus’ words. At the same time, the fastest growing number of christians can be found in China, Iran etc. These are countries who heavily persecute followers of Christ. Why would someone follow an imaginary person and subject oneself to such brutality from the authorities? True christians always thrive under extreme pressure.
I believe that Jesus is the very best role model for all humans, especially to men. [JAC: why “especially to men”?] If we only truly and daily practiced the command of Jesus to love one another as He loved us and gave His life for us, we would not have any of the above mentioned tragedies and indeed would have heaven on earth life. But who is willing to humble himself or herself to live such a lifestyle: denying their own selfish ambitions and serving their fellow man?
I hope readers of these thoughts may find reasons to reconsider their position on life.
for those who are scientifically oriented I would suggest visiting AnswersInGenesis.org for a good challenge to the modern religion of evolution responsible for communism, fascism, eugenics, rascism [sic] etc.
The heavy opposition to the efficacy of homeopathic medicine also proves that it works, as does the opposition to the existence of UFOs, which prove that they exist.
