Will Atheism Survive the Internet?

25 July 2013, 07:31

By all accounts, not. It seems that every atheist and his dog considers himself a scientific journalist because he can google the Bible and pull up verses to take out of context. The problem with google (and science, funnily enough) is that things are constantly changing.

Science dilly-dallies about supposed events that we are told happened nearly 14 billion years ago. Wow! Science is able to predict the past all the way to 14 Billion BC. Go science! Yet they cannot even agree on whether global warming is real. (Don’t panic folks, it’s under peer review—all will be explained AFTER it has happened—maybe in 14 billion years time). I only mention science because if we can disprove the big bang theory (and we can), then we disprove atheism. The whole Godless-theory comes down like a pack of cards.

Back to atheism and the internet. . . the problem with the net is that there is so much mis-information that our young surfers don’t know what is true anymore. They are looking for answers and are clearly not wholly satisfied with google. It will take more than ‘ string theory’  to fool the youth of today.

Yet the Bible has stood firm for over 2000 years. It is rock solid. It does not lie. Isn’t it comforting to have a source of wisdom and Truth that you can just feel in your bones is the right Way?

And these atheists are evil in their intent. They will pick any verse and twist it around. The other day they went on about talking donkeys, trying to trap me into asking if I believe a donkey really spoke to Balaam in the famous story. They wanted to know details, like did his lips move like a humans, did he bray as he spoke. . . was he like the donkey in Shrek. . . it always gets insulting when atheists are involved.

Yet it is these same atheists that will happily accept that there are horse-whisperers on this planet, and why could that not be an explanation of what happened with Balaam? As usual that stumped them. Then the insults started up again, always rude, crude and arrogant.

It is my opinion that you cannot fool all of the people all of the time. Net surfers are slowly realising that if they want TRUTH on the web, they only need google Bible.
