Brent Clanton - Spouting off about Atheists Again

Brent's Blog: Darwinian Logic Exposed:
"Atheists, by definition, deny the existence of God, or any other “higher power” in the universe. Personally, I think Atheists must be the most pathetic of all God’s creatures, because they have no hope."
Ah...yes. The Brent Clanton atheist bashing. Old hat for Brent, even back to the old Biz Radio 650 days.

I suggest before you bash atheist and talk about evolution, you had best understand what it is you talk about. Since your position on the subject is obviously voiced from misinformation and ignorance, my suggestion would be to read up on the subject and then come back to us. Should you wish for references beyond The Origin of Species, I would be glad to recommend lighter and more approachable reading on the subject.

I am an avid listener who won't stop listening just because you voice a frankly ignorant opinion of atheists and those that accept evolution as the most rational explanation of human origins. Not only is it the most rational and supported by the most evidence, it is the most wondrous concepts in all of science. It is far more ennobling to recognize the 2.3 billion years of biological evolution than the multitudes of creationist mythologies.

Dear Jim--thanks for the post.

There are two kinds of people in the world: Those who believe in God and those who do not.

Into which category would you rather find yourself at death: Those who believe in God or a higher being, and discover there is none; or those who deny the existance of God, and discover He Is?

You are correct, there is an overwhelming volume of evidence in support of evolution theories, including Darwn's version of the origins of species.

However, I don't believe such issues are decided by quantitative as much as by qualitative evidence.

The more I look at the scientific records, the more my belief is supported that there is a God and He is alive.

This is the type of absurd questioning that falls on its face because of internal inconsistencies. It further poses the age-old Pascal's Wager that is so soundly thrashed many times including:

I would ask dear Brent how he knows his God is the right God to worship? Perhaps you are worshiping the wrong God and the Muslims have it right. In that case, you are going to hell. Perhaps, both the Muslims and Christians are worshiping the wrong Gods and it is Mithra who you should pray to and all of you are going to hell. I would submit that we are both atheists: I don't believe in the thousands of gods worshiped by man throughout history; you just disbelieve in one less than I.

How are you going to make out if you are worshiping the wrong god?
