An atheist who gets it

Richard Dawkins actually gets it.

Talk to “evangelical” atheists and it does not take very long before the “Christianity is a dying religion” card is happily played.

My answer to that “card” is Christianity is only “dying” in Western cultures, not worldwide. And I’ll add, from time-to-time, that atheism will miss Christianity when it is gone, because the alternative will not be as accepting of their intolerance. Something else will fill the spiritual vacuum!

The cultures of mankind (and womankind, contrary to the thoughts of this Massachusetts “college” for women) have an unbroken habit of looking to a “higher-power” to worship: religion, politics, or self. It’s unavoidable! When something spiritual is gone, something spiritual will take its place. The “soul” of humanity craves it. Even atheism must admit this, because, according to atheism itself, God is not “real” and all people are born atheists – so where did religion come from?

So go to the “funeral” of Christianity and laugh. But it won’t be long before you go to a “wedding” and mourn.

The prophet visited the king of Israel and said, “This is what the LORD says: ‘Because the Syrians said, “The LORD is a god of the mountains and not a god of the valleys,” I will hand over to you this entire huge army. Then you will know that I am the LORD.'”” (1 Kings 20:28 NET)
