Atheist Wing-Ding Cancelled

A Global Atheist Conference scheduled for next February in Melbourne, Australia, has been cancelled due to “lack of interest” (https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2017/11/16/global-atheist-convention-cancelled-for-lack-of-interest/).

Ain’t that a shame? And here they went and got two big-name guest speakers for it, too: Salman Rushdie, a former Muslim, and Richard Dawkins, who believes in space aliens.

The problem is, atheism is boring. It only acquires interest when they’re baiting Christians. Among themselves, they don’t have much to talk about. I mean, how many times can you say, “Boy are we smart!”

Did I mention Dawkins believes in space aliens? That’s how life on earth got started. Space aliens started it. How the space aliens’ life got started, he doesn’t say. This sort of thing might have been hard to parley into a whole conference.

    Maybe he didn’t hear about the conference or someone forgot the great words of Lawrence M. Krauss (with special attention to the last two sentences:

    “Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements – the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life – weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today.”
    ― Lawrence M. Krauss

    I’m quite sure there are things God laughs at, but something tells me that statement about His Son is not one of those things

      Oh, I don’t know about that, Linda. See Psalm 2, v. 4: “He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision.” 🙂 Human blasphemy is in some senses a paltry thing … in comparison with the glory of the Almighty.

        He does have the last word after all 🙂

        It’s certainly a laughing matter that their conference was cancelled – due to lack of interest LOL

      yea, let’s blow up things to see if it creates anything. Talk about a leap of faith. It’s more new age philosophy than scientific.

      I agree Lee. There’s no appeal to atheism. Saying your here by accident, your life has no purpose, and when you die you cease to exist is a hard selling point.

    John Paul Sartre said existence came first so we have to create our own essence, and people like him are lionized. As Forest Gump says, “Stupid is as stupid does.”

    Here’s a very disturbing bit of news:

    They must be too – what’s the word – stupid, foolish, brainless? – to be afraid. So much for artificial intelligence.
