Around Christmas time, activity of the evangelical atheists seems to pick up a bit more. This might be an artifact of media coverage, but we tend to see some atheists objecting to outward displays of theistic faith, and others celebrating their own intellect by trying to drive the square vehicle of scientific method into the circular gateway of spiritual matters.
This Christmas, Thomas D Williams has brought “professional atheist” John G. Messerly to the loving attention of your friendly Pharmer. Messerly is railing against religion as vulgar superstition, delusion, and states that humanity needs to outgrow this spiritual impetus that fueled the building of Western and Eastern civilizations.
We might decide to emulate Dr. Messerly, who has built………. ummmmm some books and some articles, and memberships in cool secular think tanks. His contributions to civilization might out weigh those of the astounding, atheist biologist P. Z. (has he published peer reviewed scientific research lately?) Myers. But if we did follow after these leaders of thought, what would get accomplished?
Academia, under the rule of the left has pumped out prodigious numbers of underachievers, who spend a great deal of time celebrating their own intellect, but very little time building things which could advance the human condition, or that of planet Earth.
Atheist evangelists can’t seem to let go of the Creator, who has them by the tail , or is the handle within their DNA? That’s the Pharmer theory.
If an Atheist evangelist is messing with your religious expressions and celebrations, ask him what has he done lately. Has he invented or constructed or created anything? Does he serve the needs of his fellow humans in any concrete way? Has he discovered some new nugget of knowledge which could advance the condition of mankind?
Wish him God’s blessings and a REAL JOB.
