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.

CM Punk's Return - Perfect Timing for the Symbol of Anti-WWE

Looooooooook in my eyes, what do you see?! The lyrics to Cult of Personality, especially that first bar,  never felt so fitting for CM Punk as it did last night.  For the most part, everything that is CM Punk's return to wrestling last night at AEW Rampage ties directly into my latest thoughts on pro wrestling - the company is making it must-see destination television, an element desperately needed from pro wrestling.  Last night was incredible as again, it was another moment that made wrestling feel alive - with a wild and energetic pulse. It was one of the coolest moments in pro wrestling that you knew was coming, expected, anticipated, and it was everything and more. Again, MUST-SEE television. That's hard to do.  For me, it wasn't just Punk's return to pro wrestling, but the mere presence and voice of his inclusion in today's space. We know that Punk can deliver on the microphone - probably his best and most signature attribute. We also know that yes, he can

Shoulda, Woulda - Ehhh: Thoughts on the Ending to the 2021 Yankees Season

I've waited to write this post. After all, it's been a tremendously emotional season...well, for the fan base that is.  For me, everything about this year's Yankees playoff run - or exit - was expected. This team, was as complex and complicated of a team as we've seen in a long time. Bad? No, I wouldn't say that. And I know that may trigger some in the fan base - but bad teams just don't make the playoffs in baseball. However, this team was incredibly flawed - to a glaring fault. Rooted deep, deep, deep in a philosophy that currently drives the organization and has now proven to be fruitless - and even more so year after year.  So no, I never expected this team to do much other than possibly surprise me with a deep playoff run. We've seen glimpses of this team's conflicting identity by running the bases, moving runners, getting timely hits, and looking somewhat threatening to the rest of the league. And yet, we've seen this team play terrible defense

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/10/21

3 Up 1. Moderna Vaccine to Low Income Nations - In a world where the idea of "pandemic" now feels like a state of mind or the privilege of belief, Moderna has decided to aim its efforts in getting at least 1 billion doses to low-income countries the COVID vaccine. I'll save the "vaccine" chat for another time - but this is pretty awesome by Moderna. And oh yeah, highly needed.  2. Candace Parker and Diana Taurasi - Two absolute legends of the WNBA had some legacy-cementing moments this week. Parker lead her hometown Chicago Sky into the WNBA finals, and Taurasi, was named the GOAT of the WNBA by fans. Because well, she is. Congrats to both.  3. Netlfix's On My Block - For the second week in a row I'm putting a personal - and admittedly, biased - selection in the "Up" section. One of my favorite shows by Netflix, On My Block , released its fourth and final season, and yes, I binged it on my daily commute home. Gonna miss the crew from Freeridge.

The Pondering 10 - Yankees Fandom Annoyance

I'm a New York Yankees fan. If you haven't gotten that already from this blog, then the surprise declaration gives you a small set up for this latest Pondering 10 post. Yes, the Yankees are having a challenging year, and there are so many discussions and breakdowns that can be had that are productive, beneficial, and enlightening to why this season is unfolding the way it is.  You know what is not helpful? Yankee fans antics. Ironic, huh? I've long since realized that I'm associated with this fan base than can be overbearing and at times, super annoying. However, none more so than this year. Listening to sports radio, Yankees Twitter, and talking-head television has made that more clear than ever before.  With that said, here is my Pondering 10 on my Yankees Fandom Annoyance:
