Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

Uniquely Free Thinking

Isn't that precious? You know, when you meet an atheist who is certain that he or, significantly less frequently, she truly believes to be unique among humanity?
 Unique in the sense that s/he doesn't like to be controlled, doesn't go along with the crowd or, in the vernacular, is definitely not a sheeple?
Ah me, 100% of atheists deem themselves unique in resisting the pull to life in suburbia with a dumpy partner and snotty children. Their lives will be filled with adventure and swimming heroically against the stream of banality.
Interestingly these Brights crow and strut with pride at the exponential growth in numbers (if atheists can be believed) of these utterly unique individuals joining their group on a yearly basis; each one a clone of the ones who came before.

Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together
against the Lord and against his anointed, saying,
“Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.”
Psalm 2

Hmm, seems as though modern day atheists think exactly like those bronze-age camel herders for which atheists show utter disdain. If it wasn't for the New Atheists, no one would have ever thought of rebelling against their Creator in such a unique manner. Snerk!


  1. One good turn deserves another, one supposes. I'm interested, do you ever apply the skepticism you have towards other religions and atheism to your own religion?

  2. Yes. I took five years trying to explain away the teaching of Jesus and the writing of the Bible. I still have a note book in which I had written questions that I said unless they could be resolved in an acceptable manner I would not, indeed could not accept such claims.

    In my mind it has simply become the case that Christianity best explains the world and how we experience it.

    I've come to believe that it really had nothing to do with my looking at other religions or philosophies or world-views. It has to do with the fact that for reasons known only to Him, God chose to open my spiritual eyes to the truth of what had seemed before that like nonsense.

    There's no turning back. To deny the reality of Jesus would be like denying the reality of my wife and kids. Can't be done regardless of what other people say.

    Good luck on your journey.
