Headlines the world around have
become like the scowls of religious doomsayers. Where is the almighty
god in all this, why has he not come forth to bring order to the
disorder? I’ll tell you where he is…
With the dire state of
human civilization in mind, is it then not ironic that the god of the
Bible conceals himself from view and chooses to respond with silence in
this, the era where human reasoning is at its most impressive and
society (some would say) most in need of supernatural intervention?
does the biblical Christian God hide behind an impenetrable dimension,
where our finest minds and most probing and precise tools of science
What could be the purpose of such a complete and sustained retreat from his creation be but an act of mischief?
argue that the latter supposition is, indeed, not worth entertaining,
and that the biblical God, Yahweh, is as accessible to us today as he
had ever been to any desert-dwelling tribe or goat herders in the Middle
East from 2000+ years ago!
The finest minds of our species have
shown through medical- and neuroscience that the old corruptor of
souls, the Lucifer (Star of the morning), is nothing more than a
tiresome collection of genes and misfiring neurons. And if we have so
easily done away with the legend of the Satan, then, ladies and
gentlemen, I can say with absolute certainty that the Devil’s father,
Jehovah—god of the desert and blood sacrifice—is no more either!
should thus be committed to the history of our species as but another
of those fissures in our understanding that need not limit our mental
wanderings in this, the age of reason.
With the brick of reason
and the mortar of science, we can build cognitive bridges and cross
these chasms of historical ignorance that had once laid in wait to trap
our primate species as it emerged from the caves.
say unto you who believe, it’s ok, brothers and sisters. You can loosen
the shackles of faith now. Walk as free men and women! For if the Devil
hath been erased from existence by the microscope, then there is no need
to look for God through the telescope. One requires the other, and
disproving one disproves the other.
