Atheists Save the World
Have you ever wondered about the tsunami like tide of evil that is sweeping the Globe? Are you staggered by evil's power to shred society, collapsing nations? Not a Newscast goes by without the mention of corruption. Do you notice how no race, gender or age group is exempt from the power and influence of evil? It ruins families. It destroys homes. And most of all, it causes humans to do all they can to ignore it, despite the way evil corrodes the quality of everyone's life.
On the other hand, those who refuse to call evil for what it is, have grand plans for healing society's ills. Space does not allow a full discourse of the “cures” that have so far been explored by secularists but there are a few that are worth noting. Some of the more infamous secular efforts might include:
- "Only the advance of science can bring us happiness and peace!" It’s been so long since that lie was first promoted that most people don’t even remember the original sermon. However, the belief still influences our thinking. For example, we have enough resources to supply food, clothing and shelter for everyone in the whole world, but we’d rather spend trillions to finance missions to Mars and beyond to look for evidence that life spontaneously came from non life. And while we’re doing that, just in North America we’ll spend 22 billion a year renting videos and DVD’s, 95 billion on Lawn and garden supplies, 389 billion on Restaurant meals, 24 billion on salty snacks, 16 billion on chocolate, 5 billion a year on anti-aging creams, 10 billion on mother’s day flowers and gifts, 30 billion on pornography, 50 billion a year on lotteries and another 50 billion on illegal gambling. Perhaps our problems lie a bit deeper than what advances in science can address.
