Confused on Atheist Belief/Movement


This is has been an issue that has been gaining traction for years, if not decades. It seems the more we move forward as a nation, the more we leave behind our trust in faith, and our belief in a creator. The issue, in my opinion, strongly goes hand in hand with the recent push of a culture that places a great deal of emphasis on "self", and of course, on the growing lack of accountability, morals, and ethical conduct in times today.

Obviously, if your a DP devotee, you know that I am a Christian. Admittedly, and until I take my last breath, I strongly believe and trust in Jesus. I'm not afraid or ashamed to say that. If you're a new reader, there it is. 

As a person of faith, obviously my view on this is conflicting to where our society is moving. Would I want everyone to love and trust Jesus? Of course, but I know that's not 1. possible, or 2. going to happen in one blog post. 

However, what really strikes me from the video is indeed the growing effort of Atheists to renounce the  message of, or even the belief, that there is a God. With growing social media efforts, rallies, and even celebrity endorsements, it's seems like a full onslaught attack to tell everyone that my God is not real. That there is no being. And faith in itself is mythical. 

My biggest perplexity in this all is the mere end game of Atheism. Sure, as a Christian, my views, beliefs, and faith do no line up with the other religions of the world. Take your pic - Judiasm, Hinduism, Islam, and even those of Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons, or even, the trendy by Tom Cruise, Scientology. Whether which is right or wrong is not the issue in my point, but the mere fact that faith, the sole strength of one's soul, must be focused somewhere by all humans. 

In Atheism, it seems like the sole purpose of its purpose is a dedication to destroy every form of belief there is. However, if we play by the rules of that thinking, where does that leave us? OK, let's play by their rules. There is no God. So what or how did we get here? Atheism under it's umbrella of belief do not completely agree on the matter of our purpose or existence, however, they are sure God does not exist.

So with that, what is the end game in getting people to realize God is fictional? 

As a Christian, I can assure you saving souls and lives through Jesus is that "goal" in Christianity, and I feel pretty confidant in speaking for other forms of belief that improving one's self is well. 

Its rather easy to sit around and tell everyone why something isn't without responsibility or accountability. I can tell you until the end of days why golf isn't a sport. However, if I am unable to tell you what golf is, then what am I really contributing?

By the way, golf is fantastic. I'm sure some of you were already lining up the tweets and messages defending the highly skilled sport. 

Nonetheless, the growing atheism movement seems empty of truth and void of substantial logic in it's mission. 

And to be brutally honest, I find the fact that the Atheism movement being so geared in it's attacks on Christianity to be a sign of aggressive desperation that is needed to oppose the greatest foe to their mission.

Unfortunately, there are some that share my faith who give ammunition to the Atheists, with some misrepresenting the faith altogether. And this is the case for other religion and faiths as well.

For a nation that was indeed built on faith principles despite how many times we attempt to throw "separation of church and state in the argument", it is the combination of the Atheistic movement and even the  misrepresentation of the Christian faith that has given momentum in favor away from belief in God.

Do I believe our nation has removed God from this country? 

Brutally, honest answer: yes. 

And that's a topic that can span several posts. Maybe even a months worth. 

However, why, is the question I still do not understand. And I will love to hear or even debate from someone of the conflicting opinion.

So yes, I am concerned about this growing trend of doing away with a loving God that has blessed this country thus far, but I cannot take atheism seriously until it really puts forward a positive foot not bent on tearing down others.

Or even capitalizing on the mistakes and missteps of those that oppose them. 

After all, these folks all celebrate Christmas. 

Pretty hard to understand a group geared toward promoting the idea that Jesus is fictional, yet, celebrate it in honor of his birth.

I just don't get it. - all of it.

Exorcising Demons with a Breen "Double Bang!"

These sorts of moments feel like they don't happen to us.  Well, they happen VERY rarely - I'm talking Larry Johnson's 4-point play-rare. Yeah, it's been THAT long.  But watching this New York Knicks team score eight points in less than thirty-five seconds, including a sequence that will forever live in my fandom, sits right with that LJ garden-rocking shot.  I sat on my couch in absolute shock at what I just saw.  "How the hell did they just win that game?!"  It's the kind of moment this fanbase deserves. It's the moment that releases and exorcises some demons that haunt us from the trauma of experiences.  Namely you, Reggie Miller.  I loved it. And the icing on the cake was Mike Breen - Oh, Mike Breen, the loveable man with the most epic voice that has narrated so much of my basketball-loving fandom - with not one, but two signature "Bang!" calls.  I'll never let this one down. Ever.  I'm not sure where this team will wrap up the se

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/28/24

3 Up 1. DiVincenzo Shot - Yeah, I'm biased. And you know what, I don't care. This moment brought me so many jobs this week, and it still is. "Bang! Bang!"  2. Caitlin Clark Effect - Well, here we go. So many of the WNBA teams have begun moving their games against the Indiana Fever to larger arenas. The upcoming WNBA season is going to be so incredibly interesting. 3. Candace Parker - Rounding out a hoops-heavy "Up" this week is the retirement of Candace Parker. Yes, she drives the Knicks fanbase bonkers, but Parker is one of the greatest to ever lace them up. It's a shame she had to retire due to injury, but nonetheless, she should be proud. I personally will remember the 2021 WNBA Finals where she led her hometown Chicago Sky over the star-studded Phoenix Mercury.  3 Down 1. Campus Protests - I've witnessed them personally at NYU. And we are set to see these protests continue, and likely grow, on campuses over the next few weeks. We are likely to s

Turning 39 - One Last Go-Around in My 30s

I turn 39 today, and everything I read in regards to such a "milestone" is that it's dealing with the anxiety of turning 40. The big 4-0!  Yet, I sit here punching the keys completely unaware of fears, trepidations, and emotions towards the future. Instead, I find myself immersed in the present - in exactly that, 39. I also find myself slightly looking back on the road to get here - my final year in my 30s.  I look back on my thoughts on turning 30 ( Praying on a Cool Thirty ) and, ironically, I very much vibe and can feel the essence of where I was at the time. At the time, turning thirty meant a whoooooooooooole sort of different expectations and responsibilities. I am in that same place - a center of gratitude for the journey. My 30s have been a ride.  For me, I became a father, and I lost my father. I lost one of my best friends, yet, I gained another in my son - and then a second one just recently. I finished coursework on my second Masters degree, and I also watch
