Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

How to be "Intellectual," in Your Own Mind

"'You believe in nothing created something or the Creator created something? It's a simple question.' Yes indeed it is. It is also a simple presupposition offered as a limited hypothetical 'choice', excluding as it does any number of other possibilities, all of which are probably beyond our current knowledge." Raoul Rheits

Many times I have been called a liar because I have said that an atheist is someone who believes "nothing created everything," which of course is a scientific impossibility. This is a huge embarrassment to the atheist. Instead of being seen as an intellectual, such a thought reveals him to be a fool, just as the Bible says (see Psalm 14:1).

Professor Richard Dawkins isn’t embarrassed to say that believes that "nothing created everything." This is what he said in his book, The Ancestor's Tale: A Pilgrimage to the Dawn of Evolution:

"The fact that life evolved out of nearly nothing, some 10 billion years after the universe evolved literally out of nothing--is a fact so staggering that I would be mad to attempt words to do it justice" (italics added).

He’s right of course about someone being mad if they even attempted to explain it.

But those who believe it need not attempt the madness of trying to explain it or justify it. If they want to hold onto the label "atheist" and still think that they are intellectual, they can pretend that there is another alternative. All they need to do is employ the evolutionist’s popular "language of speculation" by using the word "probably," and then hope that the answer is "beyond our current knowledge"--they enroll in the "Don't Understand How" club (DUH).

How true is Scripture when it says of the atheist (see Romans 1:20): "...when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools..." (Romans 1:21-22).
