The Truth About New Atheism
 
I wanted to explore this topic with like-minded True Christians™. What exactly IS "New Atheism"?

I've seen some cartoons that suggest "New Atheism" is nothing more than advocating "free thought" (as if that is a real thing; Psalm 115:3-8).




On the surface, that might seem likely, but in reality, what I've seen anyway, is a license to mock, ridicule, and ultimately oppress. It starts with mocking and ridicule.



Then they try to appeal to one's incorrectly formed guilty conscience.



And finally, blatant indoctrination.

CNN Report: Why One Atheist Woman Would Rather March Her Children Off To Hell Than Acknowledge God's Goodness

God is not logical.
How many times have you heard, “Why did God allow this to happen?” And this: “It’s not for us to understand.” Translate: We don’t understand, so we will not think about it or deal with the issue....

God does not protect the innocent.
He does not keep our children safe....

God Teaches Narcissism
“God has a plan for you.” Telling kids there is a big guy in the sky who has a special path for them makes children narcissistic; it makes them think the world is at their disposal and that, no matter what happens, it doesn’t really matter because God is in control....

So the more I researched about "New Atheism," the more I saw it has the components to any other religious belief. Knowing that atheism is a religious belief isn't new to me, but the depth of this religion was. This is what I found out after many hours of looking into this.




NEW ATHEISM IS AN AGGRESSIVE RELIGION

Characteristics that define a religion, define "New Atheism." The belief-system has the following attributes in common with all religions.

A Distinct Religious History

New Atheists have now corrupted our youth with revising history such that our heroic forefathers appear to have been without faith. Take for example some of the quotes that are being attributed to God-fearing men who founded this great nation, the modern City on a hill.
Thomas Jefferson:
"The hocus-pocus phantasm of a God like another Cerberus, with one body and three heads, had its birth and growth in the blood of thousands and thousands of martyrs." -- Letter to James Smith, December 8, 1822

"And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerva in the brain of Jupiter. But we may hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with all this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this the most venerated reformer of human errors." -- Jefferson's letter to John Adams, April 11 1823

"Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, imprisoned; yet we have not advanced an inch towards uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites. To support roguery and error all over the earth." - "Notes on Virginia"

James Madison:
"What influence, in fact, have ecclesiastical establishments had on society? In some instances they have been seen to erect a spiritual tyranny on the ruins of the civil authority; on many instances they have been seen upholding the thrones of political tyranny; in no instance have they been the guardians of the liberties of the people. Rulers who wish to subvert the public liberty may have found an established clergy convenient auxiliaries. A just government, instituted to secure and perpetuate it, needs them not." - "A Memorial and Remonstrance", 1785

"Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise." -letter to Wm. Bradford, April 1, 1774

John Adams:
". . . Thirteen governments [of the original states] thus founded on the natural authority of the people alone, without a pretence of miracle or mystery, and which are destined to spread over the northern part of that whole quarter of the globe, are a great point gained in favor of the rights of mankind."

"This would be the best of all possible worlds, if there were no religion in it."

Thomas Paine:
"Of all the tyrannies that affect mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst."

"Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half of the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind.

"What is it the New Testament teaches us? To believe that the Almighty committed debauchery with a woman engaged to be married; and the belief of this debauchery is called faith."

Read more unholy lies, half-truths, and propaganda for your edification, HERE
What does the Bible say?


And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house,
and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
Deuteronomy 6:7

Then beware lest thou forget the Lord, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
Deuteronomy 6:12



What can you expect if you remember the Word of God, Fear Him and obey Him? Read Deuteronomy 28:1-14 for more information. But woe be he who fails to do so, who fails to teach his child the Ways of the LORD. Read Deuteronomy 28:15-68. Being smote with emerods will be the least of your worries when in Hell, submitting to the evil desires of Satan and his minions. But Atheists don't care about this, and they don't care about doing this to their children.

An Organization of High Priests/Shamans



Is there anything more blasphemous than to pretend one is ushering in the Apocalypse, the Revelation of Truth, that God Is Imaginary?!?

And yet these men have been put on Meta-Pedestals in Atheistic society. Look at how their images try to make them look like preachers of God:

Or trusted spiritual advisors:

Or even childhood hero, Santa Clause:

https://www.oxford-union.org/__data/...69/Dennett.jpg



There's simply no way a photographer can hide this one's perverted character, his shady motivations. Instead, the New Atheists hold his dark-alley child-rapist image up as some kind of icon to be admired:

http://breakingspells.net/wp-content...r-hitchens.jpg


They even have "fan art" that shows the depravity of their followers.

What does the Bible say?

Don't be so easily fooled by New Atheists with silver tongues:

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Matthew 7:15

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
1 John 4:1


The LORD shall have His Justice, and those who would lead the innocent astray will be punished:

A sword is upon the liars; and they shall dote: a sword is upon her mighty men; and they shall be dismayed.
Jeremiah 50:36

And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.
Zechariah 13:2

Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things for thee: and they have not discovered thine iniquity, to turn away thy captivity; but have seen for thee false burdens and causes of banishment.
Lamentations 2:14

And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.
Ezekiel 13:9

Established Places of Worship

http://tularecountyatheists.files.wo...pg?w=450&h=473




What does the Bible say?

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
2 Corinthians 4:4


Satan is the evil god who is worshipped by Atheists. The Word of God reveals that Satan blinds unsaved people. This is accomplished through secular wisdom, false religion, evolution, and man made traditions. Mankind is born into darkness. Satan works relentlessly to ensure that people remain in darkness, "...then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved" (Luke 8:12).

How does Satan prevent the Word of God from coming to Atheist's hearts? Many ways! Satan corrupts the Word of God. Satan tries to discredit Christianity. Satan inspires the mockery, the ridicule, the so-called "funny jokes" about Christianity ("Noah's Ark: Because the largest and most thorough act of genocide in history makes a great children's story"). Satan changes the truth into a lie. In all of this, Satan has succeeded in confusing the masses. Just as Satan caused Eve to question God's Word in Genesis 3:1-6, so does Satan shake people's faith in the Bible today, and elevate people like High Priest of New Atheism, Bill Nye the so-called Science Guy.

Schools for Religious Instruction of the Young





If you think a Christian can maintain his faith in the Anti-theist Institution Educational System that is separated from the Truth of God, you need your head examined.


What does the Bible say?

The Bible teaches that believers ought to “Labor in the Word and doctrine” (1 Timothy 5:17), meaning that we ought to study the Bible, not evolution. “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15). In John 5:39 Jesus commanded for each of us to “search the scriptures.” In the absence of Light, darkness prevails. The Bible can be summed up in just one word: TRUTH (John 17:17). Jesus is the TRUTH (John 14:6). The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of TRUTH (John 15:26). There is no TRUTH in evolution, only DAMNATION.

Religious Services


Most Atheists are "lax" or "fallen away" and don't really think about what they believe or why. Some are "devout" or "militant atheists." These are the ones that are the most trouble. They lie to the world, offering humanitarian aid without the Saving Knowledge of Christ. Watch, if you can stomach it, to see how these "militant atheists" are duping the poor, the widows, and the orphans into thinking they are loved, and deserved to be cared for, nourished, taken seriously, treated humanely:




What does the Bible say?




Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, those that remember thee in thy ways: behold, thou art wroth; for we have sinned: in those is continuance, and we shall be saved.
But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
Isaiah 64:5

For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
Romans 10:3-4

For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith.
Titus 1:10-13

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 3:18

Symbols and Icons


Christians have the Cross of Christ, Jews have the Star of David, Muslims have a moon thing, and pagans don't really count because they're all just very weird hippies sitting in the moss to "purify" their "menses" and crazy stuff like that. Atheists have usurped Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Scarlet Letter "A." The following are but a handful of the Atheist Religious Symbols and their Meanings:



http://www.religioustolerance.org/darwinatheist.png

The Darwin fish is seen fairly often -- either as shown here or with the name Darwin in its body. This has the potential disadvantage of being mistaken as a symbol for belief in evolution. Also, it may be regarded as a cynical attack on a common Christian symbol: the Ichthus (fish): http://www.religioustolerance.org/christ1.gif



http://www.religioustolerance.org/atheistaa.gif

When American Atheists (AA) was founded in 1963, they chose the atomic symbol as seen in the center of the above graphic as their logo. The use of the atomic symbol flowed from their belief that human progress can best be achieved through the scientific method and rational, open inquiry.



http://www.religioustolerance.org/atheistpu.gif

The Invisible Pink Unicorn (IPU) web site recommends this symbol to represent Atheism. They write:

"It is a fusion between the mathematical void symbol and the stylized representation of an unicorn. The void symbol (empty set) is an allusion to nothingness and in this case meaning 'no faith' or 'no god'. The unicorn is a reference to a kind of story that atheists often tell to make their point."



http://www.religioustolerance.org/fsm.png

Some Atheists postulate the existence of a Flying Spaghetti Monster. It serves some of the same functions as the IPU. It doesn't exist either.



http://www.religioustolerance.org/atheistsa.jpg

Richard Dawkins, one of the world's most famous Atheists, has founded the "OUT campaign." Its purpose is to encourage Atheists to come out of their self-imposed closet and go public with their beliefs. Their symbol is this capital "A." Their campaign offers for sale various T-shirts containing this symbol. It seems to have been around among Atheist circles for quite a while.


Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
Philippians 4:8


This "New Atheism" is not true, it is not honest, it is not just, it is not pure, it is not lovely, it is not of good report, it is not of any virtue, and it certainly contains nothing worth praising. Friends, I think this is a very dangerous religion in our midst.

Very well observed, brother.

I have often wondered about the lucidity of sister Mary's posts. Me thinks the good Mr Etheldreda is actually hiding his wisdom under a bushel and charitably allowing his wife to 'join in'.

What more Christian attitude can a True Christian™ manly man have towards his helpmeet?

Isn't the New Atheism just Satan's new attempt to attack the richous and God fearing? But we will prevail of course.

First it was rationalism, then it was Darwin, genetics, science, evolution and this last desperate attempt. Satan has always attacked us. But we have God on our side. We will prevail in the end.

But who is the anti-christ? Is it Obama or Richard Dawkins. I can't decide who is the most evil of those two?

They're both antichrists: Dawkins for being a militant fudamentalist atheist and Obama for being a crypto-mooselimb.

I came across this (see attached pic) the other day, posted by a piece of foul atheist scum.

This is just totally hurtful and disrespectful to the love of Jesus. It's no wonder he warned atheists that they thoroughly deserve to burn in Hell. It's like they exist to be foul to our Lord and hurt the feelings of Christian children everywhere. Imagine being a teenager confronted with this sort of imagery and being indoctrinated into this sort of hate cult. What a surprise that we get such a large number of god mocking nerds on the internet who are short of a good run round a playing field doing something manly. Stick them in a boxing ring and get them bruised and sweaty with a god fearing bruiser of a True Christian™ youth and they'll soon change their tune!

I also found this hideous abomination. It's like paganism. Look at all the things atheists would rather worship than our Lord Jesus! What did He do to them that makes them hate Him so? He died for them to save them from their wretched sinfulness from birth whether they wanted Him to or not - and for that they are ungrateful. They make me so angry! :angry3:

These new fangled hate cult atheists are dangerous and must be stamped out.

:(

The trouble is that atheists - may The Lord Damn them swiftly - are not in closets! They lurk like foul demons on the TV, in movies, on the radio and they infest the internets!

I would not care if, like homers, they lived in closets, but NO! They have the gall to spread their poison to men, women and children alike - and you know how impressionable women and children are!

Praise JESUS, from whom all wisdom flows!

Our Christian children face a difficult future with all these "New Atheists" running around. When I was a kid, it was impolite for atheists to be unafraid of challenging Christian beliefs, but now that it's becoming the popular thing to do, I can envision our young people having many more opportunities to affirm CHRIST's promise that we Christians will face persecution.

Excellent work exposing the dangers of free thought!

The only thing different about these "new" atheists is that they have the Internet, from which they can safely launch anonymous attacks on our faith.

I wish I had a dime for every time I've seen some damned Angry Internet Atheist saying things about Jesus that would earn him a punch in the nose if he said those things to my face!

Indeed, Brother Redeemed Papist! How could anyone want to hurt a child by convincing them to believe in Atheism, thus ensuring an eternity of Damnation? How could anyone want to hurt and disrespect the Loving Christ? The LORD has a warning for such as these cruel men,

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck,
and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
Matthew 18:6


As if begging Him for punishment, these New Atheists not only try to convert Christian children to atheism, they lie to them outright and suggest that Jesus never existed in the first place! Oh, the horror! The Blasphemy! The hatred and rage! The pain our LORD must suffer!

Only True Christians™ should watch these videos, as they are indeed Satanic and full of Demonic influences. One must be very careful what they let into their hearts, but I think we ought to be aware of what our children and our neighbors are facing when it comes to these New Atheist Terrorists.

I only have one good thing to say about the atheists, and that is that they have the good sense to hate and despise feminists almost as much as God does:

Darned tootin', conferences should be fun! The last thing you need is a bunch of whiney women spoiling everything by crying "rape" or lecturing you about their "rights"!

I hope those atheists have all the fun in the world at their little conferences, because those poor sumbitches have got a not-very-fun eternity to look forward to.

Quote:

Thing is its difficult to do that with professional victims always trying to make the whole bloody conference about them. This is a distraction we can do without!
Well it's about time somebody called these women what they are: Professional victims! I wonder how many innocent men in their little Godmocker community have been ensnared by their false allegations?

Probably a lot of shekels have changed hands as a result.

Quote:

Further having people like the girl in this video (President of some University Secular society (or similar) going around suggesting that rape threats are currently acceptable at conferences is a prime example of why this sort of feminism is poisoning atheism.
Friends, am I the only one here who finds it odd that the Christian community has sat back and passively allowed its churches to be poisoned by feminism, yet even this monkey-worshiping evolutionist has enough common sense to want to stop feminism from poisoning his religion?

Here we see how yet another one of these antichrist fools unwittingly shows just how much the evolutionist science agenda is against God by bringing his hate out into the open. Fittingly with a background illustrating the fires of Hell into which he will be thrown, the dreadful Matt Dillahunty first of all launches a propaganda campaign for evolution that anyone well versed in True Christian™ Creation Science® will see through immediately. He then has the blasphemous gall to attack the very scriptures themselves!

Yes, that's right, this fool is protected by these ridiculous secular laws from the execution he deserves and is free to denigrate our most holy word of God.

We have to stop this monstrous antichrist preaching somehow, before it's too late!

There's nothing to be scared of with atheists, you big sillies. I talk to them all the time and they're often really nice people. Shania is an atheist (kind of) though she sort of believes in spirituality and souls. Many of my feminist friends are also atheists but they're not mean to me at all - they think it's kind of cool that there's a lesbian vicar out there fighting the fight for women's rights in the church.

Many of them do really good works and I think our kind and loving God will let them into Heaven anyway because they do good things in the spirit of Christian values. For example, they sponsored my recent African condom drive by sky diving for charity and doing sponsored starve activities in solidarity with AIDS victims purely out of a sense of goodness. I respect that.

You can just look at him and tell he doesn't have the love of Christ inside him. It's sad. I would feel upset by the hurtful things and outright lies this wicked little man preaches, if they weren't so laughable as to dismiss outright.

It's clear from the way Mr. Dillahunty delights in persecuting Christians - a hallmark of one who has been preordained to eternal torments in the fiery pit of hell (Psalm 58:3, II Thessalonians 2:11-12, Jude 1:4) - that he is patently unfit to rightly divide the Word of God. I've seen this character even go so far as to claim to have once been a Christian, but it is clear from the effort he puts into placing distance between himself and the LORD that he was never a True Christian™.

If only the Holy Spirit dwelt within Mr. Dillahunty as It dwells within me and my Brothers and Sisters in Christ, he would be able to behold the Word of God in all Its breathtaking majesty. But no - God's Word is foolishness to him, which clearly puts him in the wrong. The Holy Bible instructs us that only believers are capable of truly understanding His Word.

I Corinthians 2:9-14
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

If Mr. Dillahunty would just open his heart to Jesus, even he could receive Jesus' kind offer of redemption. It's a little something called Grace, and instead of spewing anti-Christian hate speech, perhaps he should just settle down for a minute and let Jesus enter him with His penetrating Love. He would realize his error and stop trying to think for himself. God gave us the Holy Bible precisely so we don't have to think for ourselves!

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.


I don't understand why it's so hard. It would be so much easier if these types would just shut up if they don't want to get with the program instead of trying to drag others down with them. They're like a virus - pitifully wallowing in sin and depredation, all the while looking to spread their mental disease to new hosts.

Atheists are intellectual cowards. At least if you're a false Christian or a New Ager or a Hindu or whatever, you've got the balls to actually have beliefs, and therefore potentially have your beliefs put to the test.

But not the atheists. They avoid ever having to defend their beliefs by claiming not to have any. It's the ultimate cop-out.
