are actually explainable
as natural occurrences.
We observe here that, to the atheist, the universe is god and it is the god-universe which brings about 'miracles'.has also to contend
The poor ole' atheist, in awaiting proof that his universe is god,
with the fact
that the yet-to-be-explained 'miracles'
are associated with true-religion,
The Holy, Catholic Church
which issues from Jesus Christ,
Good and evil
The atheist, in pondering the numerous and outrageous sufferings of man, does not really perceive any reality in 'good' and 'evil'.
These are mere words that depict the 'reality' of the god-universe.
This god-universe is pure matter and energy and the results of the initial explosion of matter are purely natural--accidental.
The laws of the universe fall upon all. Existence and survival are mere coincidences of the god-universe spreading outwards without any intellectual input or parameters!
Therefore, to the atheist there is really no such thing as good and evil. The reality, to him, is survival.
All things that contribute to his survival are 'good'. The survival or non-survival of others in the process has nothing to do with this 'good'.
Only the strong survive in evolution; the weak are cast aside, useless as they are--in their opinion--in the relentless, inescapable process of forming gods from basic matter and energy.
And so 'evil' to the atheist is that accidental event which thwarts his own existence and prosperity.
That is to say, all events within his perception, are pertinent to him only and are there for his greater prosperity (good) or his demise (evil).
Thus, he sees himself as god or at least, god-in-the-making.
While science finds more and more facts that show Darwinian evolution as less and less feasible, the most amazing fact against evolution, in my opinion, is that mankind has actually degenerated in his ability to fully use his capacities of mind and body--which science claims is something like 90 or 95%!!
PThe human brain consists of about one billion neurons. Each neuron forms about 1,000 connections to other neurons, amounting to more than a trillion connections. If each neuron could only help store a single memory, running out of space would be a problem. You might have only a few gigabytes of storage space, similar to the space in an iPod or a USB flash drive. Yet neurons combine so that each one helps with many memories at a time, exponentially increasing the brain's memory storage capacity to something closer to around 2.5 petabytes (or a million gigabytes). For comparison, if your brain worked like a digital video recorder in a television, 2.5 petabytes would be enough to hold three million hours of TV shows. You would have to leave the TV running continuously for more than 300 years to use up all that storage. P
So states Paul Reber, professor of psychology at Northwestern University.
One has to wonder how it is that evolution produced such a stupendous brain capacity when a minute portion of that capacity would have been expected, increasing as the animal-man evolved.
Not only has man the brain capacity of such enormity but, alas, this giant brain totally malfunctions!! In every way!!
Imagine a human brain, with this startling brain capacity and ability, which performed to its absolute capacity!!!
What has happened over the millennia that has caused the brain of man to operate so pathetically?
Or are we to believe that, over 'billions of years', the human brain evolved with a great but malfunctioning capacity? As if evolution had got ahead of itself?
It seems more likely that the original human brain operated fully and efficiently but somehow, over time, deteriorated dramatically and so we have, today, a world chock-a-block of malfunctioning human beings.
If someone told me degeneration, rather then evolution, was the reality for mankind, I would have to think that is in accordance with reality.
But, such a regression totally undermines the faith of the atheist who MUST embrace Darwinian evolution which supports his awful belief that the universe is god.
Adam and Eve
The Truth of Adam and Eve and their rebellion against God, causing mankind to malfunction, suddenly becomes very plausible--an obvious probability.
And when we consider Jesus, The Christ, Who functioned perfectly as a human being (as was possible in a world of malfunctioning beings) we observe the possibilities of man; of man's potential greatness.
Jesus functioned perfectly as Man, and His actions, His whole Life, gave evidence of what God intended for man.
Not only Jesus, but his most faithful followers also performed marvellous miracles, shining out amongst mankind, as supermen (and women).
These wonderful Catholic people highlight the fact that man has degenerated--he has devolved from a superior being to that which we observe today.
And, if atheism is the only hope for mankind, then this deterioration will continue and in due course, one must think that man will become just another animal.
Communism is atheistic socialism to the extreme.
Communism almost devastated a great portion of the world and its legacy still overhangs much of the world, even if it is virtually annihilated.
And so, that famous saying of Marx Religion is the opium of the people, still lingers in the minds of many, especially atheists.
