Now that’s crazy

Somebody asked me where this quote came from, not sure if that was directed as a compliment or an insult. You decide.

The pillars of creation–nasa

 

      Insanity is believing all things came to exist by chance and apart from Intelligence. Atheism is the religion and proof of that insanity.                     -cs

 

 

And he is before ALL THINGS,  and by him ALL THINGS  consist.   (He: THE LORD CHRIST)

  1. I haven’t yet seen God with my own eyes but I’ve seen people possessed by atheism.

    And I have to say that like science, your quote is based repeatable, on demand, observation.

    CS, we have a very compelling case that local units obeying local rules give rise to emergent properties of higher complexity than the constituent parts all the time. No direction or guiding – ie. intelligence or, as I like to accurately describe the notion creationists and Discoveroids use, Oogity Boogity!, Blessed Be His Name – is required.

    What’s insane is to have all this compelling evidence and simply ignore it in favour of continuing to believe in the ever-so-rational explanation of POOF!ism through the causal agency of Oogity Boogity!. Then you insist that not believing in your explanatory account is actually a religion which is an insult to religion everywhere. But, you insist that we must believe that non belief is really just another kind of belief, and then attribute that non belief to be the same as craziness because it doesn’t accept poofing and Oogity Boogity as rational.

    Just, wow. How can anyone who is sane go along with this line of reasoning and find no fault in it? (Cue SOM to make his appearance whenever this happens.)

    But I find this kind of thinking on your part, CS – that not A is another kind of A – to be endemic to many of the religious opinions you hold. It’s bust, Bert, and produces a credulous and gullible religious automaton. That’s not a good thing to strive to be, by the way.

      Hey tild-

      Trouble is, we have evidence of your posts which cites your temerity in trying to prove your ‘non-belief.’ Your non belief is a gospel. The quote is plain.

      The lengths you travel across the globe to defend ‘nothing,’ embarrass some believers who don’t leave their driveway and yet, make more sense having less..

      You are a flaming evangelist and further proof of the ‘religion’ in the quote.

          There IS no judgment, Wally – you’re on a compute in the 21st century, professing to buy into a 3000-year old primitive belief system. I DO understand, your parents likely told you that this is the way it is, and their parents told them, and so back 3,000 years. That’s hard to turn loose of, I can see why you might be afraid of making a wrong decision, so better to believe and be safe. I really do get it, because I’ve been there.

          Hmm, well, I thought I answered this at your blog, really I did, but maybe I’ve confused you with another blog. I know that your good friend Ark has answered this question many times.

          Anyway, I can only speak for myself, and here are the answers that I thought I provided before in one form or another.

          Personally, I find it interesting (if a little disturbing) to see how others think when those others have a different way of viewing the world. For example, how can anyone seriously believe that there was a global flood around 4500 years ago? What sorts of mental gymnastics are required? This interests me.

          In addition, it’s intellectually interesting and challenging to engage in discussions with those with different points of view, particularly if it’s a slow day at work. In short, I suppose I check out these sites for the same reason I play Free Cell. It passes the time and reduces the boredom. And sometimes I actually learn something new.

          That’s not quite all I can do, Wally – I can check the credentials of the one or ones who are issuing their conclusions, but since much of the Bible was written by those OTHER than the one or ones to whom the work was ascribed (Moses, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John), pieced together by still other unnamed individuals, and later added to by yet MORE unnamed scribes, I can see where you would have a problem with that.

          At least you’re light years ahead of Colostrum, who can only fling scripture – you try to provide a different point of view, using at least a semi-logical approach. By comparison, you’re a pleasure to discuss things with.

          You have misunderstood, but perhaps this is partly my fault.

          If I may cite something that I said yesterday (after cleanly up the typos), “there are certainly some things which seem extremely unlikely to be correct.” There is a difference between “seem unlikely to be correct” and “I have perfect inerrant Truth”, yes?

          I am not offering a perfect, inerrant truth. If this is how you have interpreted my comments, then I probably should have been clearer. Yes, I think that there are some rather obvious errors in the Bible, but I could be wrong about this.

          Further, as has been pointed out many times, you assume that have “God’s Word,” but this is an assumption. We do know that the words that you have read were, at a minimum, written by human hands. Could there be more to it than that. Maybe. Maybe not.

          Ok David…fair enough. Let’s look at “could be.”

          My friend, wrongness here is about far more then being wrong than something so simply as the time of day. Wrongness here has eternal consequences.

          I just ask you to look at the motivation of your heart. It seems that your desire is for this to all be wrong. Because if it is, you are released from the accountability of it.

          But, it’s NOT wrong David. If you just quit looking at the loopholes and open your heat and mind to it, your whole outlook might change. I am not here to debate proofs with you…there’s plenty of that. I am here to tell you about it.

          Do more than just read the words of The Bible trying to pick them apart. Read them in terms of the message it contains. Look at the story and the context rather than the technicalities. God loves you…but you are separated from Him. He desperately wants to bridge that gulf, and has made the way for you to do that. Just open to it…your life, both now and eternally will change.

          This is not accurate. Consider all of the possible traits which might or might not be included in the phrase “divine nature.” Consider all of the different concepts of God or the gods which have existed over the course of the last several years. Which are correct and which are incorrect? How is everyone to know which are the correct concepts when only a subset of humans had access to the Bible? To offer a specific example, are all human beings supposed to know that an individual named Jesus lived in the Middle East approximately 2000 years ago?
