You are preaching.
No. I am not a preacher. Here is an example of a preacher.
Carl Sagan was an atheist and a renowned scientist who promoted science and atheism with a missionary zeal and became a de facto apologist and televangelist for the religion of naturalism. He promoted a world-view that was based on naturalistic assumptions. Sagan’s firm conviction is that everything in the universe has a natural cause and a natural explanation. That belief is not provable, thus it is not a truly scientific observation. Yet this unproven belief has governed and shaped every one of his theories about the universe.
Sagan has examined the vastness and complexity of the universe and concluded that there is nothing greater than the universe. So he borrowed divine attributes such as infinitude, eternality, and omnipotence, and he made them properties of the universe itself. Mr. Sagan professed belief that our universe has aseity, ( a term which is defined as, "existence originating from or having no other source than itself” or," having life in itself"). This statement is without doubt the apex of all possible oxymoronic locutions. There are several reasons by which Mr. Sagan’s arrogant and poorly reasoned statement qualifies for this ignoble distinction. The first reason is because he assigns the terms, (aseity) which by definition was originated from theistic belief and is an ascription which can only be applied to God. Secondly, contained in the definition of the word "aseity" is the phrase "existence originating from or having no other source than itself” which logically can only be applied to animate, sentient, intelligent, beings..For these two reasons Mr. Sagan's statement is a faux pas of mythic proportion,and along with his applying the ascriptions of infinitude, eternality, and omnipotence to the universe, his reputation as an intellectual is forever sullied..
A statement which Carl Sagan employed in an effort to debunk belief in God was the statement," Extraordinary claiims require extraordinary proof"'
Is the ascription of aseity to the universe an extraordinary claim ? Of course. Are the ascriptions of omnipotence, eternality, and infinitude extraordinary claims? Yes they are.
Carl Sagan never felt compelled to provide the extraordinary proof to substantiate his extraordinary claim. Therefore since Carl Sagn did not have any compunction about his failure to substantiate his extraordinary claim that the universe has aseity, and compounded his error by ascribing the attributes of omnipotence, eternality, and infinitude to the universe, none of which is provable by scientific means,,,he failed the test of rational scientific inquiry. The test of rational scientific inquiry is, "Only believe the evidential truth (the reproducible truth), that is the repetitious result of carefully designed tests which must, by nature, be maximally objective in order to distinguish truth from falsehood.
Mr. Sagan’s failure to provide extraordinary proof to substantiate his extraordinary claim that the universe has aseity and other ascriptions which the majority of rational humans ascribe to God alone, thus relegates him to the trash bin of scientific mediocrity on the grounds of: 1) a lack of research integrity and 2) scientific hypocrisy ( failure to abide by the standards which he, as a supposedly reputable scientist, imposed on others). His failure in this endeavor also proves that Carl Sagan is no longer worthy to retain his lofty perch as apologist for Naturalism". By this very fact, Mr. Sagan must assume the denigration of being labeled a non-scientist as a result of his noncompliance with universally accepted methods of scientific procedure. Mr.Sagan is also exposed as a religionist because of his pantheistic beliefs Therefore, I suggest that Mr. Sagan tender his resignation of his use of the words “scientist" and “atheist” as descriptions of his worldviews and philosophy immediately, by proxy of course, (because he is now residing in another world from which he has no means of return)
