“Atheism is an intellectually shallow, morally stunted, and socially regressive blight on humanity.” – Jim O’Neill
“Atheism is an intellectually shallow, morally stunted, and socially regressive blight on humanity.” So says Jim O’Neill in this article:
He has a lot more to say. For example:
Winston Churchill once said of Islam that “No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.” I beg to differ—as a regressive, debilitating, socially destructive force, atheism has no peer
But this is the most interesting part:
Dinesh D’Souza has pointed out that atheistic pundits are no longer content with being tolerated; they want to prove that their view of reality is the correct one, once and for all. I concur—bring it on. One side of the debate is correct, and the other side is insanely deluded. It’s obviously important to see which side is on the side of truth.
To say that atheism denies the existence of God doesn’t tell us much, unless we define what we mean by the label “God.” I would be happy to discuss the concept/reality of God, but the focus of this article is atheism not God, so I’ll employ a simple yet usable definition for now. I’ll have to leave questions such as whether God is a white-bearded guy sitting on a cloud, or as Paul said, a reality “in which we live, and move, and have our being,” and other ontological/theological concerns for another time.
For our purposes here, I’ll simply define God as an intelligent power behind creation. Atheists deny the existence of such a God, and from their denial spring a variety of absurd, puerile, and socially harmful concepts.
So which side is insanely deluded? The side that believes in talking snakes, imaginary floods, prayers that never work and a Bible filled with repulsive acts? Or the side that believes in the laws that we can discern in nature? If you are a Christian and have trouble understanding the insanity, these two videos can help open your eyes:
