Title: Why I am an Atheist and Freethinker


1
Why I am an Atheist and Freethinker
  • By Ed Hensley
  • Presented at Christian Academy of Louisville
  • November 10, 2008

2
Religious Background
  • Grew up in a fundamentalist Southern Baptist
    Church
  • Baptized at age 9
  • After doubting, baptized again at age 18
  • Went on missionary trips
  • Assisted a street preacher in Dallas
  • By 20 I doubted God wrote some texts in the Bible
  • By 24 I knew the Bible was man-made

3
Introduction
  • How Atheists and Freethinkers differ from
    Fundamentalists
  • The Bible is not the literal word of God
  • The God of the Bible is evil
  • The Bible contains bizarre nonsense
  • Many contradictions in the Bible
  • The Bible is unreliable
  • Why I am a freethinker
  • Why I am an atheist
  • Is there an atheist world view?
  • Do Atheists have morals?
  • But what about Hitler?

How Atheists and Freethinkers differ from
Fundamentalists
5
Applying Free Thought
  • God created the first man from dust approximately
    6,000 years ago in the garden of Eden which was
    located in what is currently Jackson County,
    Missouri.

Only Mormons believe Eden was in Jackson County ,
Missouri. Fundamentalist Mormons can not practice
free thought and question Edens location.
Freethinkers are permitted to question each
phrase of this sentence. Non-Mormon Christians
are permitted to ask for evidence that Eden was
located in Jackson County, Mo. People are able to
apply free thought to other religions. It is
difficult to apply free thought to your religion.
6
Applying Free Thought
  • God created the first man from dust approximately
    6,000 years ago.

Only young earth creationists believe the world
is about 6,000 years old. Free thinkers have no
problem with evidence for an old earth.
7
Applying Free Thought
  • God created the first man from dust.

Theistic evolutionists do not believe man was
created from dust. Freethinkers have no problem
with the evidence that shows man was not simply
created from dust.
8
Applying Free Thought
  • God created the first man.

Most Christians are bound by dogmatism not to
doubt this statement. Other forms of theism agree
with this statement. Freethinkers are able to ask
for evidence that God created man.
9
Applying Free Thought
  • God created.

Freethinkers are permitted to doubt this
statement and all other prior statements.
10
Fundamentalist Presuppositions
  • Biology for Christian Schools is a textbook for
    Bible-believing high-school students. Those who
    do not believe that the Bible is the inspired,
    inerrant Word of God will find many points in
    this book puzzling. This book was not written for
    them.
  • The same encyclopedia article may state that the
    grasshopper evolved 300 million years ago These
    statements are conclusions based on "supposed
    science." If the conclusions contradict the Word
    of God, the conclusions are wrong, no matter how
    many scientific facts may appear to back them.

11
Fundamentalist Presuppositions
  • The authority of the Bible is the main emphasis
    of Answers in Genesis. We dont try to prove
    the Bible with science rather, we accept the
    Bibles propositions as true without proof, i.e.
    as axioms or presuppositions.
  • Genesis unambiguously teaches that
  • The heavens, Earth and everything in them were
    created in six consecutive normal days, the same
    as those of our working week (Exodus 20811).
  • Earth is about 6,000 years old, since Jesus said
    mankind was there from the beginning of
    creation, not billions of years later (Mark
    106).
  • God judged the world by a globe-covering Flood
  • God then judged the people by confusing their
    language at Babel

12
Fundamentalist Presuppositions
  • Using this framework
  • Its important to realize that all facts of
    science do not speak for themselves, but are
    interpreted within a framework.
  • Creation Magazine 22(1)3942 Dec 1999

13
Presuppositions Can be Extreme
  • http//www.fixedearth.com/
  • The Bible teaches scores of times that the sun
    and stars move, not the Earth.
  • Then spake Joshua.... Sun, stand thou still upon
    Joshua 1012,13
  • So THE SUN RETURNED ten degrees,by which degrees
    it was gone down...(Isaiah 388)
  • The Christian Compromise with Copernicanism
    established the one and only criterion needed for
    the success of Satan's evolution myth Scripture
    can and must be reworked to match the claims of
    "science falsely so-called".

never transitional

Apply Free Thinking to the Following Statement
  • When a person dies or when a thetan abandons
    its physical body they go to a "landing
    station" on the planet Venus, where the thetan is
    re-implanted and told lies about its past life
    and its next life. The Venusians take the thetan,
    "capsule" it, and send it back to Earth to be
    dumped into the ocean off the coast of
    California.

20
Apply Free Thinking to the Following
  • Noah Was 500 Years old when he fathered 3 sons.
    Noah was 600, and his sons each 100, when they
    built an ark around 2400 B.C. that was 300 cubits
    long (no more than 450 feet). It contained
    animals of every kind on earth. The world was
    completely covered by water around 2400 B.C.

21
Applying Free Thought to the Bible
Properly read, the bible is the most potent force
for Atheism ever conceived. - Isaac Asimov
22
The Literal Word of a Perfect God?
  • The remarkable structure of the Bible should also
    be stressed. Although it is a collection of 66
    books, written by 40 or more different men over a
    period of 2,000 years, it is clearly one Book,
    with perfect unity and consistency throughout.

The God of the Bible is evil

God Kills a Man for Gathering Wood - Numbers
1532-36
  •   32 While the Israelites were in the desert, a
    man was found gathering wood on the Sabbath day.
    33 Those who found him gathering wood brought him
    to Moses and Aaron and the whole assembly, 34 and
    they kept him in custody, because it was not
    clear what should be done to him. 35 Then the
    LORD said to Moses, "The man must die. The whole
    assembly must stone him outside the camp." 36 So
    the assembly took him outside the camp and stoned
    him to death, as the LORD commanded Moses.

25
Jephthah Burns His Daughter for God -Judges 11
  •  29 Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon
    Jephthah And Jephthah made a vow to the LORD
    "If you give the Ammonites into my hands, 31
    whatever comes out of the door of my house to
    meet me when I return in triumph from the
    Ammonites will be the LORD's, and I will
    sacrifice it as a burnt offering." 34 When
    Jephthah returned to his home in Mizpah, who
    should come out to meet him but his daughter, 36
    "My father," she replied, "you have given your
    word to the LORD. Do to me just as you
    promised39 her father and he did to her as he
    had vowed

26
Genocide of the Midianites Numbers 31
  • 1 The LORD said to Moses, 2 "Take vengeance on
    the Midianites for the Israelites. 7 They fought
    against Midian, as the LORD commanded Moses, and
    killed every man. 14 Moses was angry with the
    officers of the army15 "Have you allowed all the
    women to live?" he asked them. 17 Now kill all
    the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with
    a man, 18 but save for yourselves every girl who
    has never slept with a man.

27
God Sends Bears to kill 42 children 2 Kings 2
  •  23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he
    was walking along the road, some youths came out
    of the town and jeered at him. "Go on up, you
    baldhead!" they said. "Go on up, you baldhead!"
    24 He turned around, looked at them and called
    down a curse on them in the name of the LORD.
    Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled
    forty-two of the youths.

28
1 of Gods Laws on Slavery
  • 10 Commandments in Exodus 20
  • Exodus 2120 If a man beats his male or female
    slave with a rod and the slave dies as a direct
    result, he must be punished, 21 but he is not to
    be punished if the slave gets up after a day or
    two, since the slave is his property.
  • Many other slavery laws in Ex 21

29
God Kills 70,000 Civilians Because David Counts
his Troops
  • 2 Sam 241 Again the anger of the LORD burned
    against Israel, and he incited David against
    them, saying, "Go and take a census of Israel and
    Judah."
  •  10 David was conscience-stricken after he had
    counted the fighting men,
  •  11 the word of the LORD had come to Gad 12
    "Go and tell David, 'This is what the LORD says
    I am giving you three options. ' "
  •  13 "Shall there come upon you three years of
    famine in your land? Or three months of fleeing
    from your enemies while they pursue you? Or three
    days of plague in your land? ...."
  •  14 David said to Gad, Let us fall into the
    hands of the LORD, for his mercy is great but do
    not let me fall into the hands of men."
  •  15 So the LORD sent a plague on Israel from that
    morning until the end of the time designated, and
    seventy thousand of the people from Dan to
    Beersheba died. 16 When the angel stretched out
    his hand to destroy Jerusalem, the LORD was
    grieved because of the calamity and said to the
    angel who was afflicting the people, "Enough!
    Withdraw your hand." ...
  •  17 When David saw the angel who was striking
    down the people, he said to the LORD, "I am the
    one who has sinned and done wrong. These are but
    sheep. What have they done? Let your hand fall
    upon me and my family."

30
Bizarre Laws and Stories in the Bible
31
Lot and His Daughters (Gen 19)
  • 5 They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came
    to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we
    can have sex with them."
  •  6 Lot went outside to meet them and shut the
    door behind him 7 and said, "No, my friends.
    Don't do this wicked thing. 8 Look, I have two
    daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me
    bring them out to you, and you can do what you
    like with them
  • 31 One day the older daughter said to the
    younger, "Our father is old, and there is no man
    around here to lie with us, as is the custom all
    over the earth. 32 Let's get our father to drink
    wine and then lie with him and preserve our
    family line through our father."

32
The Old Levite and his Concubine
  • Judges 1922 While they an old Levite and his
    host were enjoying themselves, some of the
    wicked men of the city surrounded the house.
    "Bring out the man who came to your house so we
    can have sex with him."
  •  23 The owner of the house went outside and said
    to them, "No, my friends, don't be so vile. Since
    this man is my guest, don't do this disgraceful
    thing. 24 Look, here is my virgin daughter, and
    his concubine. I will bring them out to you now,
    and you can use them and do to them whatever you
    wish. But to this man, don't do such a
    disgraceful thing."
  •  25 But the men would not listen to him. So the
    man took his concubine and sent her outside to
    them, and they raped her and abused her
    throughout the night, and at dawn they let her
    go.
  • 29 When he reached home, he took a knife and cut
    up his concubine, limb by limb, into twelve parts
    and sent them into all the areas of Israel.

33
David pays 100 foreskins for a Wife
  • 1 Sam 1825 Saul replied, "Say to David, 'The
    king wants no other price for the bride than a
    hundred Philistine foreskins, to take revenge on
    his enemies.' " Saul's plan was to have David
    fall by the hands of the Philistines.
  •  26 When the attendants told David these things,
    he was pleased to become the king's son-in-law.
    So before the allotted time elapsed, 27 David and
    his men went out and killed two hundred
    Philistines. He brought their foreskins and
    presented the full number to the king so that he
    might become the king's son-in-law. Then Saul
    gave him his daughter Michal in marriage.

34
Test for a cheating wife
  • Num 516 " 'The priest shall take some holy
    water in a clay jar and put some dust from the
    tabernacle floor into the water. 18 ... he shall
    loosen her hair and place in her hands the
    grain offering for jealousy, while he himself
    holds the bitter water that brings a curse. 19
    Then the priest shall put the woman under oath
    "If no other man has slept with you and you have
    not gone astray and become impure while married
    to your husband, may this bitter water that
    brings a curse not harm you. 20 But if you have
    gone astray while married to your husband and you
    have defiled yourself by sleeping with a man
    other than your husband" ..."may the LORD cause
    your people to curse and denounce you when he
    causes your thigh to waste away and your abdomen
    to swell. 22 May this water that brings a curse
    enter your body so that your abdomen swells and
    your thigh wastes away."       " 'Then the woman
    is to say, "Amen. So be it."

35
Noah Gets Drunk and Curses Grandson to Slavery
  • Gen 9 20 21 When he Noah drank some of its
    wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside
    his tent. 22 Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his
    father's nakedness and told his two brothers
    outside. 23 But Shem and Japheth took a garment
    and laid it across their shoulders then they
    walked in backward and covered their father's
    nakedness. Their faces were turned the other way
    so that they would not see their father's
    nakedness.
  •  24 When Noah awoke from his wine and found out
    what his youngest son had done to him, 25 he
    said, "Cursed be Canaan! The lowest of slaves
    will he be to his brothers."
  •  26 He also said, "Blessed be the LORD, the God
    of Shem!  May Canaan be the slave of Shem.  27
    May God extend the territory of Japheth and
    may Canaan be his slave."
  •  28 After the flood Noah lived 350 years.

36
Circumcision Blood Stops God From Killing Moses
  • Exodus 421 The LORD said to Moses, "When you
    return to Egypt, see that you perform before
    Pharaoh all the wonders I have given you the
    power to do. But I will harden his heart so that
    he will not let the people go. 22 Then say to
    Pharaoh, 'This is what the LORD says Israel is
    my firstborn son, 23 and I told you, "Let my son
    go, so he may worship me." But you refused to let
    him go so I will kill your firstborn son.' "
  •  24 At a lodging place on the way, the LORD met
    Moses b and was about to kill him. 25 But
    Zipporah took a flint knife, cut off her son's
    foreskin and touched Moses' feet with it.
    "Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me," she
    said. 26 So the LORD let him alone. (At that time
    she said "bridegroom of blood," referring to
    circumcision.)

Genocide of Laish
  • Judges 181 the tribe of the Danites was
    seeking a place of their own where they might
    settle 2 So the Danites sent five warriors from
    Zorah and Eshtaol to spy out the land and explore
    it.
  • 7 So the five men left and came to Laish,
    where they saw that the people were living in
    safety, like the Sidonians, unsuspecting and
    secure. 27 Then they took what Micah had made,
    and his priest, and went on to Laish, against a
    peaceful and unsuspecting people. They attacked
    them with the sword and burned down their
    city....       28 The Danites rebuilt the city
    and settled there. 29 They named it Dan after
    their forefather Dan, who was born to
    Israelthough the city used to be called Laish.
    30 There the Danites set up for themselves the
    idols, and Jonathan son of Gershom, the son of
    Moses, and his sons were priests for the tribe
    of Dan until the time of the captivity of the
    land.

38
Sons of God Impregnate Women
  • Gen 64 The Nephilim were on the earth in those
    daysand also afterwardwhen the sons of God went
    to the daughters of men and had children by them.
    They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

Cut off her hand Show her no pity
  • Deu 2511 If two men are fighting and the wife of
    one of them comes to rescue her husband from his
    assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by
    his private parts, 12 you shall cut off her hand.
    Show her no pity.

40
Stone Rebellious Children
  • Deut 2118 If a man has a stubborn and rebellious
    son who does not obey his father and mother and
    will not listen to them when they discipline him,
    19 his father and mother shall take hold of him
    and bring him to the elders at the gate of his
    town. 20 They shall say to the elders, "This son
    of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not
    obey us. He is a profligate and a drunkard." 21
    Then all the men of his town shall stone him to
    death. You must purge the evil from among you.
    All Israel will hear of it and be afraid.

41
The Bible Says Bats Are Birds!
  • Deut 1411 You may eat any clean bird. 12 But
    these you may not eat the eagle, the vulture,
    the black vulture, 13 the red kite, the black
    kite, any kind of falcon, 14 any kind of raven,

Problems With Biblical Chronology
43
Genesis Was Written 1000s of Years After Events
Occurred
  • Gen 1414 When Abram heard that his relative had
    been taken captive, he called out the 318 trained
    men born in his household and went in pursuit as
    far as Dan.
  • Judges 1828 The Danites rebuilt the city and
    settled there. 29 They named it Dan after their
    forefather Dan, who was born to Israelthough the
    city used to be called Laish.
  • Dan did not exist until Judges 1829 immediately
    after Samsons death (Judges 16) around 1050 BC.
    Therefore, Gen 14 could not have been written
    until 1050 BC, over 800 years the events of Gen
    14 in 1916 BC and 2850 years after the creation
    in 4000 BC.

44
Genesis Was Written 1000s of Years After Its
Events Occurred
  • Gen 3631 These were the kings who reigned in
    Edom before any Israelite king reigned
  • Gen 36 could not have been written until after
    Saul became king (Judges 16) around 1050 BC.
  • Gen 36 timeline (Jacob, Esau) occurs around 1720
    BC according to the bible, over 600 years prior
    to any Israelite king.
  • This means Genesis 36 could not have been written
    until at least 1050 BC. This is 2850 years after
    the creation in 4000 BC.

45
Who Was King First? Joram in Israel or Jehoram in
Judah
  • 2 Kings 117 Because Ahaziah had no son, Joram
    succeeded him as king in the second year of
    Jehoram son of Jehoshaphat king of Judah.
  • 2 Kings 816 In the fifth year of Joram son of
    Ahab king of Israel, when Jehoshaphat was king of
    Judah, Jehoram son of Jehoshaphat began his reign
    as king of Judah.

46
Genesis 36 copied from 1 Chronicles 1?
  • Gen 3631 These were the kings who reigned in
    Edom before any Israelite king reigned  32 Bela

    named Dinhabah.
  •  33 When Bela died, Jobab son of Zerah from

2 Chron 36 and Ezra 1
  • 2 Chron 3622 In the first year of Cyrus king of
    Persia, in order to fulfill the word of the LORD
    spoken by Jeremiah, the LORD moved the heart of
    Cyrus king of Persia to make a proclamation
    throughout his realm and to put it in writing
  •  23 "This is what Cyrus king of Persia says
           " 'The LORD, the God of heaven, has given
    me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has
    appointed me to build a temple for him at
    Jerusalem in Judah. Anyone of his people among
    youmay the LORD his God be with him, and let him
    go up.'
  • Ezra 11 In the first year of Cyrus king

    with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem in Judah
    and build the temple of the LORD, the God of
    Israel, the God who is in Jerusalem.

48
Chronicles Written Long After Most Events It
Describes
  • Prior slide shows Chronicles and Ezra were
    written at the same time. Timeline of Ezra starts
    around 538 BC and ends around 466 BC. Kings and
    Chronicles events start around 970 BC and ends
    around 560 BC.
  • This shows that Chronicles was written hundreds
    of years after events described in it.

    torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook
    and the rocks split. 52The tombs broke open and
    the bodies of many holy people who had died were
    raised to life. 53They came out of the tombs, and
    after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy
    city and appeared to many people.

False Prophecies in the Bible
64
First False Prophecy of Tyre
  • Eze 267 "For this is what the Sovereign LORD
    says From the north I am going to bring against
    Tyre Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, king of
    kings, with horses and chariots, with horsemen
    and a great army. 8 He will ravage your
    settlements on the mainland with the sword he
    will kill your people with the sword, and your
    strong pillars will fall to the ground. 12 They
    will plunder your wealth and loot your
    merchandise they will break down your walls and
    demolish your fine houses and throw your stones,
    timber and rubble into the sea. 14 I will make
    you a bare rock, and you will become a place to
    spread fishnets. You will never be rebuilt, for I
    the LORD have spoken, declares the Sovereign
    LORD.
  • This was a false prophecy. Nebuchadnezzar laid
    siege to Tyre from 585-573 B.C.E. but was unable
    to take the city. Tyre was conquered in 332
    B.C.E. by Alexander but at no time was the city
    destroyed. It exists to this day. Nebuchadnezzar
    was supposed to completely destroy Tyre, it was
    never to be rebuilt again, but to remain an
    eternal ruin, and the King was supposed to get
    much wealth and loot from the city, making it
    worth his while.

65
2nd False Prophecy against Tyre
  • Eze 2917 the word of the LORD came to me 18
    "Son of man, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon drove
    his army in a hard campaign against Tyre every
    head was rubbed bare and every shoulder made raw.
    Yet he and his army got no reward from the
    campaign he led against Tyre. 19 Therefore this
    is what the Sovereign LORD says I am going to
    give Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and
    he will carry off its wealth. He will loot and
    plunder the land as pay for his army. 20 I have
    given him Egypt as a reward for his efforts
    because he and his army did it for me, declares
    the Sovereign LORD.

66
False Prophecies
  • Gen 412 When thou tillest the ground, it shall
    not henceforth yield unto thee her strength a
    fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the
    earth.
  • As a punishment for killing Abel, God says Cain
    will be "a fugitive and a vagabond." Yet in just
    a few verses (Gen 416-17) Cain will settle down,
    marry, have a son, and build a city. This is not
    the activity one would expect from a fugitive and
    a vagabond.

67
False Prophecies
  • God renames Jacob twice (Gen 3228, 3510 ). God
    says that Jacob will henceforth be called Israel,
    but the Bible continues to call him Jacob anyway
    (4728-29). And even God himself calls him Jacob
    in 462.

68
Isaiah 7 Prophecy vs 2 Chron 28
  • Isa 73 Then the LORD said to Isaiah, "Go out
    to meet Ahaz .... 4 Say to him, 'Be careful, keep
    calm and don't be afraid. Do not lose heart
    because of the fierce anger of Rezin and Aram
    and of the son of Remaliah. 5 Aram, Ephraim and
    Remaliah's son have plotted your ruin, saying, 6
    "Let us invade Judah let us tear it apart and
    divide it among ourselves, and make the son of
    Tabeel king over it." 7 Yet this is what the
    Sovereign LORD says        " 'It will not take
    place,        it will not happen,
  •  
  • 2 Chron 285 Therefore the LORD his God handed
    him Ahaz King of Judah over to the king of
    Aram. The Arameans defeated him and took many of
    his people as prisoners and brought them to
    Damascus.       He was also given into the hands
    of the king of Israel, who inflicted heavy
    casualties on him. 6 In one day Pekah son of
    Remaliah killed a hundred and twenty thousand
    soldiers in Judahbecause Judah had forsaken the
    LORD, the God of their fathers. 7 Zicri, an
    Ephraimite warrior, killed Maaseiah the king's
    son, Azrikam the officer in charge of the palace,
    and Elkanah, second to the king. 8 The Israelites
    took captive from their kinsmen two hundred
    thousand wives, sons and daughters. They also
    took a great deal of plunder, which they carried
    back to Samaria.

69
Jeremiahs False Prophecy to Zedekia
  • Jer 344 " 'Yet hear the promise of the LORD, O
    Zedekiah king of Judah. This is what the LORD
    says concerning you You will not die by the
    sword 5 you will die peacefully.
  • Jer 528 but the Babylonian army pursued King
    Zedekiah and overtook him in the plains of
    Jericho. All his soldiers were separated from him
    and scattered, 9 and he was captured.       He
    was taken to the king of Babylon at Riblah 10
    There at Riblah the king of Babylon slaughtered
    the sons of Zedekiah before his eyes he also
    killed all the officials of Judah. 11 Then he put
    out Zedekiah's eyes, bound him with bronze
    shackles and took him to Babylon, where he put
    him in prison till the day of his death.

70
False Prophecies of Jesus
  • Matt 1627For the Son of Man is going to come in
    his Father's glory with his angels, and then he
    will reward each person according to what he has
    done. 28 I tell you the truth, some who are
    standing here will not taste death before they
    see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.
  • Matt 2433 Even so, when you see all these
    things, you know that it is near, right at the
    door. 34 I tell you the truth, this generation
    will certainly not pass away until all these
    things have happened.

71
False Prophecies of Jesus
  • Mark 91 And he said to them, "I tell you the
    truth, some who are standing here will not taste
    death before they see the kingdom of God come
    with power."
  • Mark 1326 "At that time men will see the Son of
    Man coming in clouds with great power and glory.
    . 29 Even so, when you see these things
    happening, you know that it is near, right at the
    door. 30 I tell you the truth, this generation
    will certainly not pass away until all these
    things have happened.

72
False Prophecies of Jesus
  • Luke 927 I tell you the truth, some who are
    standing here will not taste death before they
    see the kingdom of God.
  • Luke 2132 I tell you the truth, this generation
    will certainly not pass away until all these
    things have happened.

Reliability of the Bible
Codex Sinaiticus 4th Century Text is oldest
surviving manuscript containing all 27 books of
the New Testament. It contains 2 other books, The
Shepherd of Hermes and The Epistle of Barnabas,
that some Christians also considered part of the
NT for centuries.
74
What made me start to question Biblical
Reliability?
  • The most reliable early manuscripts and other
    ancient witnesses do not have Mark 169-20.
    biblegateway.com
  • The Catholics have a different Bible than
    Protestants
  • There are many other books Christians once
    accepted but are no longer in any biblical canon.

75
Early Christianities
  • Marcionites Believed in Jesus, but did not
    believe in Old Testament, Yahweh, or anything
    Jewish. Felt Old and New Testament were
    incompatible. (see Against Marcion)
  • Ebionites Christians who wanted to reinstate
    Jewish Law
  • Gnostics Very different (see Against Heresies)
  • There were other branches of Christianity that
    would be called unorthodox today

76
Early Christian Books not in the NT
  • Other Gospels Epistle of the Apostles Gospel of
    the Hebrews Ebionites Egyptians Mary

  • Many other letters and stories

77
Ireneaus Why we have 4 Gospels
  • Bishop in what is now Lyons, France.
  • Wrote Against Heresies around 180 A.D.
  • "But it is not possible that the Gospels can be
    either more or fewer in number than they are. For
    since there are four zones of the world in which
    we live, and four principal winds, while the
    church has been scattered throughout the world,
    and since the 'pillar and ground' of the Church
    is the Gospel and the spirit of life, it is
    fitting that she should have four pillars,..."
    Against Heresies 3.11.8

Catholic Editing
  • 325 A.D. - Council of Nicea called to unify
    Christian doctrines.
  • 367 A.D. - Athanasius writes 39th Festal Letter
    and includes the first listing of the 27 books of
    the NT. His Letter listed only 22 books of the OT.

79
Protestant Editing
  • 2nd Maccabees is the basis for the doctrine of
    purgatory and other Catholic doctrines
  • 1534 - Martin Luther Bible in German puts
    Maccabees in the Apocrypha with all books in
    Greek Septuagint but not in Hebrew Masoretic Text
  • 1546 Catholic Council of Trent adds books to
    cannon
  • 1566 2nd Cannonized books called Deuterocanon
  • 1611 King James with the Apocrypha
  • 1885 Apocrypha removed from King James Version

81
Lets Review an Earlier Statement
  • The remarkable structure of the Bible should also
    be stressed. Although it is a collection of 66
    books, written by 40 or more different men over a
    period of 2,000 years, it is clearly one Book,
    with perfect unity and consistency throughout.

Christianity Adopted Aspects of Other Religions
83
Why is Christmas on Dec 25?
  • Dies Natalis Solis Invicti means "the birthday of
    the unconquered Sun." The use of the title Sol
    Invictus allowed several solar deities to be
    worshipped collectively, including Elah-Gabal, a
    Syrian sun god Sol, the god of Emperor Aurelian
    and Mithras, a soldiers' god of Persian origin.
    Emperor Elagabalus (218222) introduced the
    festival, and it reached the height of its
    popularity under Aurelian, who promoted it as an
    empire-wide holiday. This day had held no
    significance in the Roman festive calendar until
    it was introduced in the third century.

84
Why is Christmas on Dec 25?
  • Sol Invictus was placed on the date of the
    solstice because this was on this day that the
    Sun reversed its southward retreat and proved
    itself to be "unconquered." Several early
    Christian writers connected the rebirth of the
    sun to the birth of Jesus. "O, how wonderfully
    acted Providence that on that day on which that
    Sun was born...Christ should be born", Cyprian
    wrote. John Chrysostom also commented on the
    connection "They call it the 'Birthday of the
    Unconquered'. Who indeed is so unconquered as Our
    Lord . . .?"

85
Why am I a Freethinker?
  • I am a free thinker because I do not hold any
    beliefs based upon the presuppositions of
    religious dogma. All beliefs are based upon
    facts, evidence, logic, reason, science and all
    forms of rational inquiry.

86
Why am I an Atheist?
87
Why am I an Atheist?
  • The religion in which I was raised is false.
  • No other religion is any more true.
  • I have found no evidence of any god.
  • Natural explanations based on evidence answer
    questions better than dogma.
  • Atheism is the conclusion of an open-minded
    search for the truth.
  • I live a moral life without religion.
  • My family and I are very happy as atheists.

88
Is there an Atheist World View?
  • Atheism is a conclusion simply a stance on
    whether or not god exists
  • There are many differences of opinions on many
    issues among atheists (as there is likewise among
    Christians)
  • There is not a single atheist world view

89
Do Atheists Have Morals?
  • If we did a good act merely from the love of God
    and a belief that it is pleasing to Him, whence
    arises the morality of the Atheist? It is idle to
    say, as some do, that no such being exists.
    Diderot, D'Alembert, D'Holbach, Condorcet, are
    known to have been among the most virtuous of
    men. Their virtue, then, must have had some other
    foundation than the love of God.

The Golden Rule Preceded Jesus
  • "This is the sum of duty. Do not unto others that
    which would cause you pain if done to you."--
    Mahabharata 51517, from the Vedic tradition of
    India, circa 3000 BC
  • "What is hateful to you, do not to our fellow
    man. That is entire Law, all the rest is
    commentary."-- Talmud, Shabbat 31a, from the
    Judaic tradition, circa 1300 BC
  • "That nature alone is good which refrains from
    doing unto another whatsoever is not good for
    itself."-- Avesta, Dadistan-i-dinik 945, from
    the Zoroastrian tradition, circa 600 BC
  • What you do not want others to do to you, do not
    do to others. -- Confucius, 500 B.C in The
    Doctrine of the Mean 13.
  • Do not do to others what would anger you if done
    to you by others. -- Isocrates, 375 B.C.

91
Love Your Enemies Preceded Jesus
  • I am good to people who are good. I am also good
    to people who are not good because virtue is
    goodness. I have faith in people who are
    faithful.I also have faith in people who are not
    faithful because virtue is faithfulness.Taoism -
    Tao Te Ching - Lao Tzu - chapter 49
  • Let a man overcome anger by love, let him
    overcome evil by good let him overcome the
    greedy by liberality, the liar by truth! Speak
    the truth, do not yield to anger give, if thou
    art asked for little by these three steps thou
    wilt go near the gods. Buddhism - Dhammapada V.

But What About Hitler?
93
Hitler was not an atheist
  • I believe today that my conduct is in accordance
    with the will of the Almighty Creator. - Adolf
    Hitler, Mein Kampf, Vol. 1 Ch 2
  • What we have to fight for is the necessary
    security for the existence and increase of our
    race and people, the subsistence of its children
    and the maintenance of our racial stock unmixed,
    the freedom and independence of the Fatherland
    so that our people may be enabled to fulfill the
    mission assigned to it by the Creator. - Adolf
    Hitler, Mein Kampf, Vol. 1 Ch 8

94
Hitler was not an atheist
  • In short, the results of miscegenation race
    mixing are always the following (a) The level
    of the superior race becomes lowered (b)
    physical and mental degeneration sets in, thus
    leading slowly but steadily towards a progressive
    drying up of the vital sap. The act which brings
    about such a development is a sin against the
    will of the Eternal Creator. And as a sin this
    act will be avenged. - Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf,
    Vol. 1 Chapter 11

95
Hitler was not an atheist
  • Anyone who dares to lay hands on the highest
    image of the Lord commits sacrilege against the
    benevolent creator of this miracle and
    contributes to the expulsion from paradise. -
    Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf Vol. 2 Chapter 1
  • Thus inwardly armed with confidence in God and
    the unshakable stupidity of the voting citizenry,
    the politicians can begin the fight for the
    'remaking' of the Reich as they call it. - Adolf
    Hitler, Mein Kampf Vol. 2 Chapter 1

96
Hitler was not an atheist
  • The folkish-minded man, in particular, has the
    sacred duty, each in his own denomination, of
    making people stop just talking superficially of
    Gods will, and actually fulfill Gods will, and
    not let Gods word be desecrated. For Gods will
    gave men their form, their essence and their
    abilities. Anyone who destroys His work is
    declaring war on the Lords creation, the divine
    will. - Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf Vol. 2 Chapter

  • With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon

  • With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon
    eliminated and those that survive commonly
    exhibit a vigorous state of health. We civilized
    men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check
    the process of elimination. We build asylums for
    the imbecile, the maimed and the sick we
    institute poor-laws and our medical men exert
    their utmost skill to save the life of every one
    to the last moment. There is reason to believe
    that vaccination has preserved thousands, who
    from a weak constitution would formerly have
    succumbed to small-pox. Thus the weak members of

103
Full text from The Descent of Man
  • It is surprising how soon a want of care, or care
    wrongly directed, leads to the degeneration of a
    domestic race but excepting in the case of man
    himself, hardly anyone is so ignorant as to allow
    his worst animals to breed.
  • The aid which we feel impelled to give to the
    helpless is mainly an incidental result of the
    instinct of sympathy, which was originally
    acquired as part of the social instincts, but
    subsequently rendered, in the manner previously
    indicated, more tender and more widely diffused.
    Nor could we check our sympathy, even at the
    urging of hard reason, without deterioration in
    the noblest part of our nature. The surgeon may
    harden himself whilst performing an operation,
    for he knows that he is acting for the good of
    his patient but if we were intentionally to
    neglect the weak and helpless, it could only be
    for a contingent benefit, with an overwhelming
    present evil.

The Rise of HitlerThe Failure of the Church,
19331945
  • Hitler, in April of 1933, speaking to Bishop
    Wilhelm Berning of Osnabrück, a delegate of the
    Conference of Bishops
  • I have been attacked because of my handling of
    the Jewish question. The Catholic Church
    considered the Jews pestilent for fifteen hundred
    years, put them in ghettos, etc., because it
    recognized the Jews for what they were. In the
    epoch of liberalism the danger was no longer
    recognized. I am moving back toward the time in
    which a fifteen-hundred-year-long tradition was
    implemented. I do not set race over religion, but
    I recognize the representatives of this race as
    pestilent for the state and for the church and
    perhaps I am thereby doing Christianity a great
    service by pushing them out of schools and public
    functions.

The Rise of HitlerThe Failure of the Church,
19331945
  • Lutheran Pastor Martin Niemöller
  • The Jewish people has chosen its own way and
    will and has counted the forgiveness of sins as
    nothing. Now it bears the curse. Because it
    rejected the forgiveness it drags about the
    frightful burden of the unforgiven bloodguilt of
    its fathers. The blood of all righteous men who
    were ever murdered because they testified to the
    holy will of God against tyrannical human will
    has come upon its head, as well as the blood of
    Jesus and the blood of all his messengers.
    (Sermon published in English, 1937)
  • And this, in a sermon arguing against the
    theological constructions of the German
    Chrisitans and their idea of a positive
    Christianity that set aside notions of human
    limitation and sin (the relics of negative
    Christianity) to seek after human perfection
    within its racial (Aryan) construct.

ICR and the Petrified Brain
  • I absolutely do believe this is a human
    petrified brain. I believe it is here by Divine
    Providence from God for a reason. I think it has
    a wonderful story to tell and there is a lot of
    great research especially for Creationism to be
    done here.
