We almost skipped this one from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, because it starts out as a promotion for some books he’s peddling. The title of his post is Sneak Peek at Our World Religions and Cults Book Series and Conference.
Sounds boring, right? But midway through it gets entertaining. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
We are excited about the release of all three volumes of our unique World Religions and Cults book series.
Yeah, yeah. Skipping over that, Hambo says:
Volume three of the World Religions and Cults series focuses on a popular religion here in the West: atheism. Yes — atheism is a religion! It’s a belief system that has religious views about God, origins, what happens when you die, how you should act, and more. Honest atheists admit their view is faith (and obviously it’s a blind faith). An atheist’s attitude is not based on observational science but on faith. The absence of a creator, the nonexistence of God, and a belief in naturalism is their faith.
He’s said that stuff before, but then he adds something new:
Atheism is all around us. It’s practiced (and funded) in state schools and pervades the media, law, museums, textbooks, Internet, and science journals. People who claim that they’re not religious but make judgments about religious topics (e.g., the truth of the Bible, deity of Christ, existence of God, morality of adultery) have made a religious statement. Judgments about religious topics are religious statements.
Textbooks, science journals — a bunch of religious mumbo jumbo. Now it gets really interesting. Here comes Hambo’s evidence, with scripture references omitted:
Those who demand God to come and show evidence of Himself should know that He did come and He raised Lazarus from the dead. The Pharisees plotted to kill Lazarus. He healed a man born blind, but the Pharisees refused to believe he was healed. Jesus came, died, and rose from the dead, yet the evidence was suppressed by the authorities. They rejected the evidence. God tells us those who reject creation and the global Flood deliberately refuse to believe, regardless of the overwhelming evidence.
Wowie — Hambo has a whole arkload of evidence! He continues:
Secularists demand evidence, but then they usually just reject it. The Bible makes it clear that those who reject God reject obvious evidence He exists.
Don’t you feel silly, dear reader? One more excerpt:
Secularists claim they want evidence — but most really don’t. They would just reject or reinterpret the evidence based on their religion. They are willfully ignorant.
Hambo’s final paragraph is a promotion for his World Religions Conference, where “we will expose atheism for what it is — a religion!” Go ahead, click over there to read it all — if you have the courage.
