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.

3 Up 1. NY Times Investigative Series on Haiti - The history of Haiti is such a complex (and unfortunate) one. Really, it's a story that goes untold, specifically for the context of how the country is viewed. From being forced to pay operations to enslavers (yeah, you read that right), to so many other historical setbacks - including American interventions - the nation's history is so well laid out in this latest NY Times piece. I urge you to give it a read.  2. Equal Pay for US Women's Soccer Team - Kudos to US Soccer on coming around to giving the USWNT their due - equal pay for prize money from the World Cup. It's a start, and more importantly, it's a push forward for women's sports that do in fact push the needle in comparison, or more so, to their male counterparts.  3. Kate McKinnon - Random "UP" here, but I'm doing it anyway...A few SNL usuals are rumored to be walking away, including Kate McKinnon. The show obviously doesn't carry the

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 4/10/22

3 Up 1. Ketanji Brown Jackson - The new Supreme Court Justice is a win for black and brown girls everywhere. Representation matters.  2. Women's College Basketball Ratings - I'm giving the women's tournament its due as it garnered the highest television ratings ever for the national championship game in eighteen years. And that was head-to-head with the Grammys! Spare me the "women's sports don't draw" tired narrative. Invest in women's sports, period.  3. Baseball Returns - Sure, the sport bothered fans over the winter with its ugly and insulting labor spat. However, it's back, and that's cool.  3 Down 1. Ukraine Images - Unfortunately, I had to put the ongoing acts in Ukraine back in the tops spot. Have you seen some of the images coming out of the country? For me, it was the image of parents writing children's information (i.e. names, details of eating habits, etc...) on their backs - on their backs! - in anticipation of being separated

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Amateur (2018)

What is it about? The recruiting and exploitation of a teenage basketball phenom expose the immoral undercurrent world of amateur sports and business.  Who is in it?  Michael Rainey Jr. - Terron Forte Jr.  Brian White - Vince Josh Charles - Coach Gaines

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/27/22

3 Up 1. Volodymyr Zelensky - The President of Ukraine delivered a speech this week that certainly went viral not just for his take as the current war on Ukraine ensues, but for his honesty and courage throughout it.  2. Kentaji Brown Jackson - In a world on fire, here at home President Biden nominated Jackson, who becomes the first black woman to serve on the highest court in the nation. That's so cool. I'm happier for the tons of little girls of color who can dream of being a Supreme Court Judge, and now believe it.
