A “Sign” of the Times

So sorry rabbi… Recently a friend of mine gave me a short clip out of a local newspaper to read (see below) and asked my opinion about what it said.  My friend knows that I’m a Christian and where I stand on issues of faith, but I think he was trying to get me to...

Starting a Grassroots Apologetics Ministry

Starting an Apologetic Ministry I had the privilege of speaking with Chris Arnzen of Iron Sharpens Iron Radio about the birth of New York Apologetics and how to start an apologetics ministry.  We know that "unless the Lord builds it, it's laborers labor in vain", so...

Beware the Hebrew Roots Movement

Hebrew Roots is dangerous! In my recent radio interview with Chris Arnzen on the Iron Sharpens Iron Radio Show, I was asked a question about the Hebrew Roots movement.  Although I've heard about the movement and knew some basic information, I promised to post some...

Evolution: Science Fable, or fact?

This hilarious video on evolution illustrates the absurdity of the Theory of Evolution and the consequences that follow.  On evolution, you have no significant value or meaning.  

Think God started Evolution? Think again!

The idea of theistic evolution has come under fire recently and rightfully so.  Several scientists and theologians have worked together to address the idea in a new book called "Theistic Evolution".  In it, they explain that the storyline of scripture, and...

Gospel contradictions as a source of confidence?

Can multiple eyewitness accounts be the key to getting the truth? As you watch the video below, ask yourself these questions: If many people are eyewitnesses to an event, does that mean that their stories must be identical?  Do their stories have to match verbatim?...

 

Dear Atheist ……Flying Spaghetti Monster?

 Welcome our blog article title Dear Atheist. These segments entitled Dear Atheist, talk about issues commonly asserted by atheists toward those who believe in God. If you have a comment or disagree, please feel free to state and support you reasoning below.

Flying Spaghetti Monster

Dear Atheist, it is not uncommon for Atheists to sarcastically refer to God as a Flying Spaghetti Monster. As with any other made up religion, this even one comes with its own gathering called the “Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster”, whose members sometimes refer to themselves as Pastafarians. 

Cosmology (Bang)

So for all you Atheists who think this makes sense, even sarcastically, you may want to think about Cosmology for a moment. The consensus in cosmology is that the universe had a beginning a finite time ago at the Big Bang. (About 13.7 billion years.) The universe of course, being made up of Space-time and matter implies that anything outside the universe (it’s cause) cannot be made of matter. If matter existed before the universe, then the universe created itself and that’s not possible. Therefore, as you say your God is made of spaghetti (matter), you violate the laws of logic and you violate what is known about the universe in current cosmology. 

Dear Atheist, Perhaps this will help you. 

God by definition is the greatest conceivable being and as such would have great making properties. 

For example:

  • Would it be greater to be all powerful or somewhat powerful?  All powerful. 
  • Would it be greater to be know some things or know everything?  All knowing. 
  • Would it be greater to be everywhere at once or relegated one location?  Omnipresent. 
  • Would it be greater to be created or exist by necessity?  To exist by necessity.

God would at the very least be defined as:

  • Omnipotent
  • Omniscient
  • Omnipresent
  • A necessary being

It would seem that some atheists think that making an unsupported claim is somehow an argument for the truth.

Conclusion:

If you want to be taken seriously, and you feel as though you have a real argument or thought that can be supported, we would love to hear from you. If not, then by all means cook up a nice bowl of spaghetti.
