  • Ask an Atheist

    Hi,

    I'm an Atheist, and I was wondering, if you could ask one question to myself or any Atheist as a whole, what would that be?

    Re: Ask an Atheist

    The purpose of this forum is for non-Christians to ask the questions, and Christians to provide the answers. (Hence, the name of the forum). Please read through the rules for posting, which can be found here: http://bibleforums.org/showthread.ph...efore-posting)

    When we stand before the Judgment Seat, we will have retained only two things from our earthly life: what God gave us, and what we did with what He gave us.

      I would ask you how you view the new wave of popularity surrounding intelligent design by aliens, and whether you see these aliens as "gods". If not aliens, how was our amazing body designed. How did this world get so beautiful and why are humans full of so much compassion and deep thought? How could that come about if no God existed, it cannot be random. The world is very UNrandom.

      ID popularity is growing partly due to an erosion in belief in a strict biological naturalism and evolution through natural selection. In other words, evolution must have had an outside force guiding it, because mathematics show evolution to be impossible, too many obstacles. Take for instance arguments about irreducible complexity.
      As the "thief" in the night, Christ is going to suddenly appear on the throne of Israel - not the antichrist.

        What will you say when you stand at the judgment seat of Christ?

        In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity. - Rupertus Meldenius

        Read your Bible and pray every single day. - Pastor Jon Courson

        If your grace ain't greasier than a bucket full of chitlin's and gravy, you might be a legalist - an internet friend.

          Oaktree500, I raised this question in your Introduction thread:

          Can you please explain how you have proven to yourself that God does not exist?

            Is that it is that all there is?

              Here is what I would NOT ask you.
              - can you prove God doesn't exist. I can't prove He does, so I already know your answer. You can't.
              - why don't you believe in God. I don't believe in the muslim, Hindu, Egyptian, Viking and all the other gods, so I get it.
              - how can you believe in evolution but not a creator. I get that too. If you don't believe in the creator, in God, then you are left with evolution.

              I think that's a good start. What I might ask you would be how you are comfortable believing that when you die, and for that matter when everyone you love dies, that's it? But then I find that disappointing and depressing.

              I can't help but wonder how any of it matters believing as you do. If you have children and they die young, it means nothing to them and only to you until you die, and then they mean nothing to you.

              Your aim and goal in life is to get as much as you can and enjoy it for as long as you can. Very basic and simple but in the end pointless. For none of it matters once time has overtaken and consumed it.

                I would ask, 'You believe in evolution and think it disproves the Bible and a Creator, right?" Anyway, that's how I got led into atheism as a youth.

                Then I'd ask if you have really looked outside the disinformation matrix. For example...

                Let's see how pseudo science is being used to convince you that you are nothing but a fish update who sprang from some antiscientific primal pond type scenario, and who certainly doesn't have a Heavenly Father Who...loves...you. Then let's look at some real science, a bit outside the box.
                .
                We have been told that life came from inorganic matter. Now, science must have observable data to be valid and must not ignore the actual data. The actual data, per the LAW of Biogenesis? Life always comes only from life and life of the same kind. Theories are fine if they don't defy the actual evidence. Even in labs, with intelligent design and high tech equipment, life has never been created. The best they can do is take an already living cell and alter it with genetic engineering, or get a few components of the cell, not nearly all of them at al, which never come close to being alive..
                .
                The needed proteins and other components of a cell are not only not all there, they are not arranged as they need to be arranged - in statistically impossible ways if random chance had put them together. No one has even gotten close to creating life. It should be easy. Just take a simple cell or any life form that has died. There you have all the components needed for life - except life. So why can't anyone do a Dr. Frankenstein on any of them? (And kindly don't say that evolution doesn't "do" abiogenesis. Look. It's in evolution writings and documentaries, and all over the net and YT.)
                .
                We have also been told as gawd's truth scientific fact that a 3 foot high ape type creature, an Australopithecus, Lucy, was your great, great etc. granny. Based on? Some minor similarities, namely "similar homology", namely the Correlation Does Not Imply Causation logical fallacy. The fact that she was pretty much like any other ol' Australopithecus was irrelevant to them. Incomplete Comparison logical fallacy.
                .
                Since evolutionists are always disagreeing with one another on everything, now some of them say, No, it wasn't Lucy but some other such creature. Some creature with no evidence it existed. Presuming Omniscience logical fallacy.
                .
                Now how do they know Lucy et al even had a single descendant, much less one significantly different from it, much less one that could turn into you? Presuming Omniscience logical fallacy.
                .
                Guess for how long any "transitions" are missing between you and Lucy or some other transition du jour? Oh, for just 2 to 5 million Darwin years! The rocks say no transitions exist. The evo spin, their Presuming Omniscience logical fallacy, tells you, again as gawd's truth scientific fact, that they are just "missing."
                .
                We've also been told that we came via a fish, Tiktaalik. The story goes that this...fish...was found in just the right place for a "transition". Problem is, it's 100% nothing but a...fish. See Wiki describing it as "an extinct species of lobe finned fish." Google the fossil of Tiktaalik, which is mostly missing. Do those tiny fin fragments look like they could be said to be turning into legs - without the Presuming Omniscience logical fallacy? Yet we see all sorts of fanciful art work of Tik with long, muscular "evolving" legs, bending as the fish transits, supposedly, to land. The real evidence?
                .
                In countless billions of fossils and in living examples, all we ever see are 100% fish and 100% tetrapods/four legged animals. (No, mud skippers and "walking" catfish are not transitions. They are using their 100% fins in an unusual way, similar to a flying fish which is no way turning into a bird.)
                .
                Evolutionists are constantly picking up fossils like Tiktaalik from the ground and telling you, for up to over a 100 million Darwin years, what happened to their invisible and evidenceless billions of "descendants." Never ask them how to tell missing links from non existent links. And then they accuse Christians of being into "magical thinking."
                .
                You are not a fish update. You are infinitely more than that. Here is some actual, observable and documented evidence, to help you see that: Now in the Bible we are told of a Man Who believed in Adam and Eve and Noah as being actual, historical figures. The Bible says He did miracles and told others to do things like raise the dead and heal the sick. It also describes His death and burial. Is there any actual scientific data to support those stories?
                .
                See secular news reports about Val Thomas, dead for 17 hours but now alive and normal after prayers from her family and her Church. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPHycsIdB1Y .
                .
                See Medical Marvel Beyond Chance, from a secular source, with a pediatrician giving his report. this one attesting to a dying child's healing which cannot be explained by modern medicine, and came after a relative laid hands on her and prayed for her. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xyko-56NCSw The DNA in every cell in her body was transformed.
                .
                See CBN's short vid with Dean Braxton. You'll hear his critical care doctor, rated the best patient care doctor in Washington state, saying "It is a miracle...a miracle..." that Braxton is alive, has no brain damage and is normal in every way. Why? He had no heart beat and no respiration for 1 3/4 hours! His family believed in divine healing and they and others were praying for him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3Zjt8r-hNA . Also see CBN Dr. Chauncey Crandall Raises A Man From The Dead. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-7ZkleLu1w Part 1. This video is a bit faded but has the most complete information on this story.
                .
                Get Dr. Richard Casdorph's book The Miracles. There he gives medical documentation for miracles, mostly, but not all, from Kathryn Kuhlman's healing services. Casdorph came to Kuhlman's meetings to debunk her but turned into a supporter, as did other doctors. You can see him and other doctors in some of her healing services on YT. (She is now deceased.) Delores Winder is one of the cases documented in his book. You can watch her amazing story on YT with Sid Roth. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfdG5czaUX0&t=7s
                The book The Audacity of Prayer by Don Nordin lists medically documented miracles.
                .
                On Andrew Wommack's vids you can see doctors talking about "miracles" too. Check out the YT vid with the ophthalmologist who says Yes, Ronald Coyne could see out of an empty eye socket after a faith healer prayed for him. You can see him doing demos. At the end of the book Don't Limit God you see a medical statement by a doctor saying that his patient used to have M.S. and diabetes but is now cured. Do you think that Someone Who can raise the dead and heal people of deadly "incurable" diseases, Someone Who created time, space, matter, energy and you - needed "evolution" to make life forms? No, He created them fully formed and fully functional in 6 days just as Genesis, a Book He always supported, tells you.
                .
                Then there is the Shroud of Turin. If you don't know, the Shroud is a linen burial shroud with the faint image of a crucified man on it. If you have heard that the Shroud was proven to be a Medieval fake based on carbon 14 testing, in the documentary Jesus And The Shroud of Turin, you can see the very inventor of carbon 14 testing saying that the sample was invalid due to contamination. . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XTtDhvk_aw4 . The vid demonstrates many miraculous features such as pollen from Jerusalem and faint images of flowers that are found only in the Jerusalem area during the spring, as at Passover when Messiah was crucified. With modern technology we also see that the Shroud has an x ray quality which even reveals the bones and dentition of the Man on the Shroud.
                .
                In the 70s a NASA scientist noticed the Shroud's photographs had inexplicable, unique in the world, qualities. He got up a team of scientists, called STURP, to examine it in person in Italy. (No, the Shroud is not "just a Catholic thing" as the Vatican only came into possession of it fairly recently in history.) They used NASA, and other, high tech equipment, with 100s of thousands of hours of research. Their findings are seen all over the net and were published in respected science journals.
                .
                The team was composed of 3 Jews, at least one agnostic and one atheist, and people of various faiths. They all agreed on these things: The Shroud image was not painted on, and they have no clue how it got there. It exactly matches, down to blood stains where a crown of thorns would be, the description of Messiah's death and burial as given in the Bible. The image could not be duplicated with modern technology.
                .
                About the Shroud I say "If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and waddles like a duck, maybe it's a duck."
                .
                Maybe that Man on the Shroud is your very Best Friend and Savior. I pray you will find that out. You're going to need a miracle some day friend. They are out there in abundance for those who humbly seek them from their Creator, the One Who made all that DNA out there, and Who said, "Whoever comes to Me I will no way cast out."
                Per Hebrew 13:3 please "Remember those in prison": http://bibleforums.org/forumdisplay....secuted-Church

                Acts 21 Now they have been informed about you that you continually teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn back from and forsake Moses...Therefore do just what we tell you....thus everybody will know that there is no truth in what they have been told about you, but that you yourself walk in observance of the Law of Moses.

                  Had plenty of time discussing things with atheists in the YouTube comments section, and I really don't have any questions. Ran out of new questions to ask a long time ago lol.
                  John 10 (KJV)
                  27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
                  28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
                  29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

                      I would just reasonably ask why you don't believe in God, and we can move from there.
