Open Letter to an Atheist


You seem to have a chip on your shoulder against God and people who think that Somebody -- other than "nature" -- made them.  Why is that?   Are you against the idea of Creation, or only as it applies to how you (also) came to be?

Since we and the world exist, then Whoever (or whatever) made us is our Creator, either the impersonal, normally destructive, forces of nature, or Someone who manipulated and organized matter to make 'it' come to life: before any humans were around to observe what (or how it) took place.  

Don't be deceived, this isn't about "religion" but about truth: the truth of how we all came to be.  

Either impersonal, normally destructive, "forces of nature" organized matter, programmed it's DNA and gave "it" the ability to see, hear, taste and feel --along with a mind and a personality, and made "it" a personal being ... OR a personal Being of Great Significance did it, and gave us our life?

Science is supposed to be a search for the truth, no matter where it leads: even if it points toward an Intelligent Being whom most refer to as God.  

If God is responsible for making the earth habitable for life, and if He designed all life forms and programmed their DNA, then that makes Him both the Creator and our (personal) Creator.

However, since many who call themselves "scientists" have been, and still are, trying to exclude any and all creative intelligence from the halls of education, this means that science has been effectively "high jacked" and turned into a religion of what pompous elitists assert that they (just) know to be true: i.e. evolution and that it's based on sound, irrefutable " science." 

The atheist / evolutionist community have exalted themselves to what are, in effect, "science priests," who pretend to know how we got  here, and that God didn't do it.  However, the fact is that they have not observed, nor can they demonstrate how even the simplest bacteria came into being, which means that they have very little, if any, "science" to back up their beliefs.  

If God is removed from the origin of life debate, then why not also remove His influence from all public life?  Isn't this your ultimate goal?  Isn't this debate really about the fact that you don't want to even consider having to give an account to a Creator / God (who made you), nor for that Creator to try and place restraints on how you live, or try and tell you about right and wrong?

Why is the debate said to be about ''science'' vs. ''religion'' when neither the atheists who say this, nor their "science" can demonstrate how the most simple one-celled bacteria -- nor even a single life-based protein – can come about by natural forces: apart from pre-existing life?   Is it not because you are afraid of the truth and don't want it to be told: much less to prevail, or because you are intolerant?

If God is the Creator, then it makes sense that He used His intelligence to Design the way that our heart pumps blood and works in conjunction with our lungs (and our environment) to carry oxygen throughout our body, and that our eyes were Designed to see and our ears to hear and our minds to think.  And since DNA also has not been observed to make itself from chemicals, much less program itself, then why should we believe that it did so in the past?

Is it not true that we are more complicated and aware than frogs, worms, or amoebas, and that life itself is more complicated than rocks, minerals, or chemicals?  In fact, life is more complex than anything mankind has yet made: including cars, airplanes, computers, and even a walking talking robot that was Designed and Programmed by highly trained engineers and programmers who used their intelligence to do so.

With carbon and the right machinery, scientists can make a diamond, yet they can’t make an amoeba, nor design and program a new type of self-replicating organism: at least not yet.  Isn't this because living things are more complex, if not much more so, than rocks and minerals? 

If only one (biased) viewpoint about our origin is welcome in our public schools and the halls of science, then how can that be called "freedom" of thought: or to follow the evidence wherever it leads?  

Isn’t education and "science" supposed to be a search for the truth: no matter where it leads?  If so then it's wrong to exclude intelligence and Creation from the debate: whether in an open forum on a college campus, public square, or the classrooms and halls of our educational system: and especially that which is funded by the people with (their) tax dollars.

Common Ancestry or Common Creator?

You assert that since many different types of life have similar things in common that this is clear evidence that they "inherited them from previous ancestors," but in this regard you fail to mention the just as likely -- if not much more likely -- scenario of a common Designer / Creator using similar tools to accomplish similar tasks.  For example, wheels come in all different sizes and types, as do ball bearings, screw-drivers, and beams, yet they are used in all sorts of different things -- that were each made by people.  So the common ancestry assertion doesn't "hold water," much less prove that we evolved.

Could it be that your hatred toward God or the thought of Judgment has played a part in the hostility and anger that you often display toward those who believe in God?  Or is it simply that you are afraid that you may, in fact, be wrong about what you say you know to be a "fact"?  

Or is it because you want to be feared and obeyed as if you were God: even though you didn't make yourself, nor can you make an ant, or an amoeba, nor a synthetic blade of grass?

Is it not a "fact" that your jobs are on the line, and that your superiors require you to “toe the line,” regarding their evolutionist, "no-God-allowed" beliefs?

Are you aware that many founders of modern science were Creationists who believed in God: and that He made the earth, and life: including them? 

For example, Robert Boyle is called the founder of Chemistry, Isaac Newton invented calculus, Mendel is the father of genetics, and Pasteur discovered germs and disproved the belief that life came from non-life?  Did you know that all of these men were Christians who believed the bible and that God and Jesus made the universe, and us?  

Or is your bias against God linked to the fact that you don’t want anyone telling you how to live, nor about right and wrong, nor of a God who says He and His Son are coming back to assert authority over a world that They made: even as we are told very clearly in both Old and New Testaments?
