WHOSE FOOL ARE YOU?
First Published January 1983
It's so ridiculous for man to not believe in God! Man can't help but believe in God if he just looks at Creation. If you're not an absolute fool, if you have a reasoning mind at all, all you have to do is look at the Creation to know Somebody had to design it, pattern it, and put it together and make it work like it does.
The simplest country boy out in the country can just look around out in the country at the Creation God made and see that there's a God. It's obvious that all that didn't just happen by accident. It's as plain as day that Somebody had to plan it and figure it out, because God's beautiful Creation works so beautifully, so systematically, so perfectly--Creation, so-called Nature, is not just natural--God made it! It's created! It's all supernatural! It's all miraculous.
If you do not have enough sense to know there's a God, then just look at His Creation. Just look at the sea, the sky, the clouds, the mountains, the valleys, the trees, the flowers, everything. They're all virtually shouting, "There is a God! Look what He made! Look what a beautiful World He made for you to live in!"
I can prove from the Bible that these scientists and teachers and evolutionists and all who claim not to believe in God are liars. They do believe in God. Only an absolute fool, an imbecile, an insane idiot, somebody who's not quite straight in the head would actually in his heart believe there's not a God! Maybe these "smart" people are that demented! God's Word says the smart ones, if they don't glorify God, become fools. The Bible says, "The fool hath said in his heart, 'There is no God'!" (Psalms14:1) Now a lot of people will say with their mouth, "There is no God," but all the time in their heart they know there's a God.
In fact, most people who claim they don't believe really do believe, but they're in rebellion against God! They don't want to know Him and they don't want to confess that He exists, because if they do, then they have to recognise Him, and if they recognise Him, then they have to admit that they owe Him some kind of acknowledgement and obeisance and obedience.
The greatest proof of the existence of God is His Creation! That's why evolution is so damnable, and Devil-inspired, because it tries to explain away creation by saying that it just happened by accident and it threw itself together! Isn't that ridiculous?
"For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the World are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse!" (Romans 1:20) His invisible existence is manifest or proven by the things you can see, His creation. The existence of our invisible God is proven by His visible creation.
That is why the World wants to reject creation and say it's all just a meaningless chaotic evolution, because if the World and its inhabitants are God's creation, then they're His property, and if they're His property, then He has the right to be Boss, and they don't want God to be Boss! Therefore "they did not like to retain God in their knowledge", in their education. (Romans 1:28)
"Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools!" (Romans 1:21,22) They got so smart that they could do without God and the Bible, and so they became what-- fools! Absolute fools, who "changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator!" (Romans 1:23,25)
So why did the Devil and man cook up this ridiculous, idiotic scheme of evolution?--- to try to get rid of God and the knowledge of God, "as they did not like to retain God in their education." And since they threw God out and they threw creation out and they threw the Bible out, they had to cook up something new. They didn't want the truth anymore, so they had to figure out some big lie!
You talk about a fairy tale! Evolution is the craziest, hardest thing in the World to believe, that it all just happened by accident, that it all just kind of fell together. Dr. Robert A. Millikan, the great physicist who developed the splitting of the atom, said, "If you'd say that this watch just put itself together, invented itself, you'd be crazy! And just as there had to be a watchmaker behind the synchronised perfection and order of every watch, so there had to be a Creator behind the perfect synchronised perfection of the Universe!"
Yet this evolutionary doctrine of delusion has become the general theme of modern so-called science. Evolution is now referred to as the "great principle" of biology. But a principle, according to the dictionary, is a foundation, truth or fact--the basis of other truths. And if you know anything about evolution at all, you know that it has never been proven to be either a truth or a fact, much less the foundation or basis of other truths.
There is no proof for evolution! It has to be believed, therefore it's a faith, therefore it's a religion. Even the high priest and founding father of this false faith, Charles Darwin himself, confessed that "the belief (note the emphasis on belief) in natural selection (evolution) must at present be grounded entirely on general considerations.. When we descend to details, we can prove that no one species has changed ... nor can we prove that the supposed changes are beneficial, which is the groundwork of the theory."
Evolution is really a religion of unbelief in God! That's its whole purpose: To eliminate faith in God and to foster the false doctrine of devils that the creation created itself and God had nothing to do with it, so there doesn't need to be a God, it could have happened without Him. What an idiotic and ridiculous lie!
Even if you don't believe the Bible, honest scientists have figured out that if evolution actually took that many millions of years, we would be ten miles deep in evolutionary fossils, missing links, instead of having to search the World over, trying to find one! Nearly every one of those crazy fossils that were supposed to be the missing links have now been debunked. Some of them were even confessed fakes, like Piltdown Man, Java Man, etc.
"In the beginning, God," not chaos, not some nebulous cloud of gases, but "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth!" The first verse of the first chapter of the first book of the right Book. Now either you believe that, either you believe what God's Book says, or you're going to take what some liar says.
"And God created man in His Own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them." (Genesis 1:27) He didn't look like some apeman or monkey, or some fish or bird. He created man like Himself, God! And God formed man out of what, previous forms, apes, beasts, birds? "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." (Genesis 2:7)
Creation is the premise and preface and basic foundation of the entire Bible! If you don't believe this, you won't believe anything! Because when you doubt one word in the Bible, you'll soon doubt the whole Bible! What happens in a court of law with the testimony of a witness when one thing he's said is proven to be a lie? They throw his entire testimony out, including the true things he said, because they can't believe it and every word will be in doubt. If he lied about one thing, maybe he lied about another. That's the way it is with the Bible.
Jesus said, "Had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed Me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe My Words?" (John 5:46,47) Now, what's the first of Moses' writings, upon which all five books are based? Genesis, "In the beginning ... ," all about creation and the beginning of God's dealings with man.
If they had believed that book of Genesis all about creation and God, then they would have accepted Jesus Christ as their Saviour! What, then, did the Devil know he had to do to prevent people from believing in Christ? He knew he had to destroy their belief in the writings of Moses and in the book of Genesis in particular, in the Creation, the glorious creation. How did the Devil do that, by what doctrine, what big lie, --evolution.
That was his greatest lie and greatest manufacture and most clever piece of teaching, evolution! As ridiculous and idiotic as anything you could possibly study, because it has no foundation in fact whatsoever; there's no evidence for it; no discovery has been made to prove it. As one of its top exponents, Margaret Mead, the famous anthropologist wrote, in her own introduction to her textbook on anthropology: "We as honest scientists must confess that science has yet to discover one single iota (tiny speck) of concrete evidence to prove the evolutionary theory."
The lies of science falsely so-called, pseudo-science, of which St. Paul warned dear Timothy, "Beware of the lies of science falsely so-called!" (1Timothy 6:20) Once you reject the truth about creation, about God, about Jesus, and about happiness and the proper rules of life and love, there's nothing else to believe but lies and the Devil.
If the devil always came around with hooves and horns and a long tail and a pitchfork in his hand, he wouldn't be half as dangerous as the way he really comes around: In the form of some smooth-tongued professor in today's modern universities, teaching courses that are nearly all lies, phoney lies, very little truth to them. Pure vain imaginations, somebody's dreams--nightmares!
They, as Jesus said, are blind leaders of the blind, and He said they're both going to fall into the ditch. "The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken, lo, they have rejected the Word of the Lord, what wisdom is in them?" What wisdom is in them? Without God's Word there is no wisdom, no knowledge that amounts to anything or is worth anything! (Mttthew15:14; Jeremiah 8:9)
The Bible prophesies that in the Last Days, "the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine (the truth); but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears (ears that want to be tickled with lies!); And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables!" (2Timothy 4:3,4) This time has come, and these days are here, and their ears have turned from the truth and are turned unto fables, like evolution.
"Because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved, for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth!" (2Thessalonians 2:10-12) If you don't like the truth, you've only got one alternative, a lie!
Look at the World, look at the beautiful trees, look at the flowers, look at the sea, look at the sky! Does God love you? You can see it and you can feel it in the beautiful World He's given you to live in.
God is the only One Who can give meaning to the Universe and purpose to the planets and love to our hearts and peace to our minds and health to our bodies and rest to our spirits and happiness to our lives and joy to our souls and the wisdom to know that "the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom" and "the wisdom of this World is foolishness with God"! (Proverbs 9:10; 1Corinthians 3:19)

Does God exist? A recent spate of "new atheists" claims to prove that God does not. Perhaps most prominent among them is Richard Dawkins, an evolutionary biologist and Oxford University professor. The 2008 publication of the paperback version of his book The God Delusion added to the more than 1.5 million copies already in print.
According to Dawkins, religious believers are delusional for believing in God because it is a belief without any rational justification. He dedicates a large section of the book to a philosophical critique of arguments given for God's existence by St. Thomas Aquinas and others.
The preface to the paperback edition contains a response to critics in which Dawkins offers rebuttals to the robust, sometimes scathing, criticism of the first edition. Each criticism merits a sentence, such as, "You can't criticize religion without a detailed analysis of learned books of theology" followed by a few paragraphs from Dawkins in response. His response to this particular criticism is instructive: "I would happily have forgone bestseller-dom if there had been the slightest hope of Duns Scotus illuminating my central question of whether God exists."
In fact, Scotus provides a number of philosophical arguments in at least four different works--all of which are simply ignored by Dawkins. Scotus's arguments are not based on faith or revelation or personal "religious experience," but rather on what can be known by reason. Dawkins "knows" prior to investigation that Scotus can teach him nothing about the question of God's existence without even being aware that Scotus addresses the question. This assumption amounts to a close-minded dogmatism.
Also missing in The God Delusion is any consideration of contemporary philosophers such as Alvin Plantinga, John Haldane, Robert Adams, and William Lane Craig, who offer philosophical arguments (not theological) for God's existence. I rather doubt Dawkins would take kindly to a critique of biology which ignored the work of virtually all prominent contemporary biologists and only selectively treated their predecessors. To ignore such philosophers and their arguments is to beg the question.
Precisely at issue is whether or not there is a God; simply ignoring (or being ignorant of) counter arguments and asserting that the faith in God is akin to belief in the emperor's new clothes is straightforward begging the question.
Dawkins also ignores or is unaware of medieval and contemporary forms of the Kalam argument for God's existence. William Lane Craig summarizes this argument as follows:
In one of the most startling developments of modern science, we now have pretty strong evidence that the universe is not eternal in the past but had an absolute beginning ... in a cataclysmic event known as the Big Bang. What makes the Big Bang so startling is that it represents the origin of the universe from literally nothing. For all matter and energy, even physical space and time themselves, came into being at the Big Bang . . . Out of nothing, nothing comes. So why does the universe exist instead of just nothing? Where did it come from? There must have been a cause which brought the universe into being. We can summarize our argument thus far as follows: 1. Whatever begins to exist has a cause. 2. The universe began to exist. 3. Therefore, the universe has a cause. Given the truth of the two premises, the conclusion necessarily follows. From the very nature of the case, this cause must be an uncaused, changeless, timeless, and immaterial being which created the universe. It must be uncaused because we've seen that there cannot be an infinite regress of causes. It must be timeless and therefore changeless--at least without the universe--because it created time. Because it also created space, it must transcend space as well and therefore be immaterial, not physical.
The Kalam argument poses significant difficulties for Dawkins and other atheists who accept that science can reveal the truth about the world. The first premise--whatever begins to exist has a cause--seems to be presupposed by scientific inquiry itself which, in part, investigates how things come to be. The second premise--the universe began to exist--is itself accepted as scientifically justified by the evidence of the expansion and cooling of the universe. Given the premises, the truth of the conclusion logically follows. The universe has a cause, and the name most cultures give to the "cause of the universe" is God.
So, how does Dawkins critique this argument? He simply ignores it.
Dawkins may be an excellent scientist. He fails badly, however, as a philosopher. The worst part is that he is ignorant of his own ignorance. He appears closed to wonder about the deepest questions in life, questions that the empirical method of science cannot answer. Dawkins oversteps his scientific knowledge in the delusion that such training makes him competent to judge dogmatically the deepest philosophical and religious questions.
