The Sadomasochistic Tales of the Stupid Richard Dawkins

2/28/2015 , 41 Comments


Dawkins labeled the God of the Bible as "the most unpleasant character in all fiction."

“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.” (Richard Dawkins, “The God Delusion,” Ch2, pp 31)

“Sadomasochistic” is the adjective form of sadism and masochism combined and is abbreviated S-M or S and M. As defined in the dictionary, the noun form, sadomasochism is “gratification, especially sexual, gained through inflicting or receiving pain.”So, is the God of the Bible sadomasochistic? If so, to whom and from whom? 

This baseless and foolish accusation of Richard Dawkins is now reverberating in his person! To call God "sadomasochist" or even simply sadist or masochist is the height of unparalleled idiocy. First, he who doesn't exist is deficient of any description. Second, it is utterly presumptuousness to describe what one denies! Not even the archenemy of God, satan, ever called God "sadist" or "sadomasochist"! 

Satan feels the lust and lasciviousness of human flesh.

JAMES 3:16, 15 
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

The Son of God, Jesus Christ, the true image and manifestation of God in the flesh, never had experienced sexual pleasure nor lasciviousness, more so, the pleasure of being a sadist.

I PETER 4:1 
Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;

HEBREWS 4:15 
For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

I PETER 2:21-22 
21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: 
22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

How can a God with human flesh having controlled His desire and lust be called "sadist", more so, the Father? 

Apparently, Dawkins, whom I firmly believe has sexual lust and desire, know the pleasure of being a sadist! To pass on the stinking mud on your face to somebody else's face is most certainly unfair!

JAMES 1:14 
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

Dawkins and his ancestors are no exemptions from this verse! Mind you, even apes have sexual lust and desire but never sadists. (Heterosexual) sexual relationships among human beings is God's way of procreation. It is always moderated by His teachings and prohibitions.

HEBREWS 13:4 
Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

His laws intend to produce God-fearing people.

MALACHI 2:15 
And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one?That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.

He commanded the male to love his wife, just as the wife should love her husband.

EPHESIANS 5:28 
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

Far from being a sadist, a God-fearing man will not inflict harm on his sexual partner. Such a law cannot come from a God who authored everything that is good, just, desirable, and truth.

PHILIPPIANS 4:8-9 
8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 
9 Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

But the thinking of Richard Dawkins is the opposite of all these goodness that God caused to be written in the Bible. God, is a spirit, without flesh. Man has a spirit and flesh.

JOHN 4:24 
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

GENESIS 6:3 
And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years.

All flesh have the lust of a flesh.

I CORINTHIANS 15:39 
All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.

God is a spirit that inhabits a person and teaches him to have control over his flesh.

THE ROMANS 8:13 
For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

COLOSSIANS 3:5-6 
5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 
6 For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

To show the best of examples that God is not sadist or sadomasochist, we can consider His creation. His creation is the expression of His character and power.

THE ROMANS 1:19-20 
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them. 
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, beingunderstood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

A species of bee that God created proves that being sadist is out of God's plan and wisdom. Here’s an excerpt from an article by Debbie Hadley on what she calls “the tragic plight of the male honey bee” after sex with the queen bee. 


A martyr in a sexual relationship must not be called "sadist." Humans (not atheists) are also proof that God is not a sadist. The following is a song, “After the Lovin’” by Engelbert Humperdinck showcasing the loving man, acting accordingly as ordained by his Maker -

So I sing you to sleep 
After the lovin' 
I brush back the hair from your eyes. 
And the love on your face 
Is so real that it makes me want to cry.

And I know that my song 
Isn't sayin' anything new. 
Oh, but after the lovin' 
I'm still in love with you.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afSAu5bHs3A

There are so many good things that man can learn from his Creator but is impossible for atheists to ponder on them and understand. Normally, love is shown even after the sex act. 

Below is the stupid reason of Dawkins calling God "sadist" or "sadomasochistic."

"But now, the sado-masochism. God incarnated himself as a man,Jesus, in order that he should be tortured and executed in atonementfor the hereditary sin of Adam. Ever since Paul expoundedthis repellent doctrine, Jesus has been worshipped as the redeemerof all our sins. Not just the past sin of Adam: future sins as well,whether future people decided to commit them or not!I have described atonement, the central doctrine of Christianity,as vicious, sado-masochistic and repellent. We should also dismissit as barking mad, but for its ubiquitous familiarity which hasdulled our objectivity. If God wanted to forgive our sins, why notjust forgive them, without having himself tortured and executed inpayment - thereby, incidentally, condemning remote future generationsof Jews to pogroms and persecution as 'Christ-killers': didthat hereditary sin pass down in the semen too?"(Richard Dawkins, “The God Delusion,” pp 253).

Here is a confused pervert preaching the fruit of his imaginations in a language only those like him enjoy. 

We will touch on these in the next issue of my blog. 

God bless you.

Backing Up the President by Being Peaceful

2/21/2015 , 123 Comments



"Blessed are the peacemakers,” the Lord says.


MATTHEW 5:9 
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Peacemakers can be recognized in the midst of misunderstanding or where confusion is. The Bible clearly states that.


JAMES 3:16, 15 
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

The ascension of President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III to power was done in peace. Biblically speaking, his government is a government allowed by God – ordained by God.


THE ROMANS 13:1 
Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

Although, it is one of the most contested elections in the history of the Philippines, Aquino won by a majority of votes of his countrymen, the Filipinos. His government is legal; his mandate is provided for by the Constitution, and must be respected by every law-abiding citizen, especially the clergy wanting him to step down. 

There are praise-worthy achievements of the Noynoy Administration that did not happen during the past administration. I will just mention a few to underscore his anti-corruption campaign:


1. EXPOSURE OF THE PDAF SCAM - On 2013, President Aquino ordered the Department of Justice to conduct an "extensive and fair probe" of the PDAF (Priority Development Assistance Fund) scam. On August 28, 2013. The NBI and Justice Secretary, Leila De Lima filed the cases of plunder and malversation of public funds against businesswoman Janet Lim-Napoles, Senators Ramon Revilla Jr., Juan Ponce Enrile, Jinggoy Estrada and five former representatives on September 16. On November 19, The Supreme Court declared PDAF as unconstitutional.

2. Plunder Case VS. Former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo - Plunder raps filed, vs. GMA- After two years in office, the first plunder case vs. GMA has finally been filed in court. (2010)

3. Corona impeachment - On December 12, 2011, Supreme Court Justice Renato Corona was impeached by the House of Representatives. On May 29, 2012, he was found guilty by the Senate of violating Article II of the Articles of Impeachment filed against him pertaining to his failure to disclose his statement of assets, liabilities, and net worth to the public.

Source: http://www.gov.ph/aquino-administration/good-governance-and-anti-corruption/

If there be lapses in the government, I believe it was not intentionally done by the President. We must remember that there are other people surrounding the Chief Executive whose actions, sometimes, are motivated by influences of people who are power-hungry and corrupt. These we must not blame on Noynoy. 

There are signs we have to consider in knowing the real person of a person. For example, mistakes are not the defining factor on the character of any person. Everyone - even the earlier Christians considered saints who lived on earth – had committed mistakes. Only the Lord Jesus Christ did not sin. The Bible underscores that.


ECCLESIASTES 7:20 
For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

I PETER 2:22 
Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

For a President to have the balls to criticize powerful television networks with the most influential newscasters, displays his not being hypocrite. I believe Noynoy is not a hypocrite. He speaks straightforward like his father did. He speaks in the open without fear and without any insecurity.

PROVERBS 28:23 
He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favor than he that flattereth with the tongue.

PROVERBS 27:6 
Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.

And when people do that, the clear intention is to instill the need for change – the need for introspection and for improvement. We should rather be thankful then. We must learn from experience. Peace is a very valuable essence of life. It comes from God. The opposite that is chaos, comes from the devil. 

We must learn from what happened in Egypt, in Syria, in Libya, in Nigeria, and similar places. Destabilization is costly. It claims lives and destruction of properties among the populace. I pray it will not happen in our country. 

We must, as a people, work together for the preservation of peace.

THE ROMANS 12:18 
If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.

To call for the resignation of a legally elected President is most certainly unfair. Aquino was elected without fraud. He was not involved in any form of the "Hello Garci" of Gloria Arroyo. There was none of interventions of some unscrupulous COMELEC officials. 

The fate of the gallant SAF44 who died in line of duty was not the fault of the President! Instead of calling for his resignation, let us rally behind him in helping these fallen heroes. 




A week before the former President Joseph Estrada was forced out of office, I was with him in some two or three friendly dinners. He showed me, with the late President-to-be Fernando Poe Jr., some abuses, cruelty, and injustice being done by some sectors even by the richest in society. 

But to uphold justice, Estrada had to decide against the influential. A son of an influential rich was even there in one occasion where I said, "Tell your father to cooperate with the President." Because of his inclination to protect the poor, (I believe he was sincere) influential sectors worked for Estrada’s ouster! 

What followed after that is a history of the most corrupt regime in Philippine politics! The people have the right to information. Media, however, is amiss in this regard. There are men and women of the media that are paid to twist the truth, suppress the truth, or slant the information to the liking of their client. I know that, having been a victim of this malpractice. 

I am thankful that by talking to an incumbent President in office, I have known some secrets unknown to many. Emmanuel Soriano, the former President of the University of the Philippines, my cousin, was one resource person. Soriano who formally launched the candidacy of President Cory Aquino had confided to me also some playful tactics of influential politicians. Wilhelm Soriano, also a relative, a former Human Rights Commissioner, whispered to me a magic that was done with the funds of the Overseas Workers’ Welfare Administration (OWWA). And these all involved corrupt people, the kind that Aquino would not pass unsanctioned. These things and the like, denying people's trust, I have not heard in the government of Noynoy. 

This is the first time I am writing or speaking for a President of the Land. I was not paid to write - and I am saying this as some of his enemies might wonder! My conscience as a Christian tells me to speak up to help in the preservation of peace in my beloved country - my beloved country, from where I was driven by circumstances to leave because of a corrupt regime – Gloria Arroyo’s. 

I remember the former Solicitor General Frank Chavez who with two judges told me, "Leave as early as possible!" 

 And the rest is history! 

God bless the Philippines!

Why God Can Hinder Pestilence But May Allow It

2/14/2015 , 45 Comments




When pestilences struck Egypt, Pharaoh did not believe that they came from the God of the Israelites, a people whom he didn't want to liberate. As it is, Pharaoh believed in so many gods. “The Most Famous Atheist” Richard Dawkins does not believe in any one of them either because he is an atheist! 

Comparing Pharaoh and Dawkins, in principle, Pharaoh is better because he did not accuse the God of the Bible being pestilential. It is just that this ruler of ancient Egypt cannot accept that the God of his slaves is more powerful than his gods! Pharaoh can even be considered having a better line of thinking and rationality than Richard Dawkins. It is but expected for a king to believe that his god is more powerful than the God of the nation that served Him as slaves. Richard Dawkins on the other hand has shunned all logic when he accused somebody who does not exist being pestilential! 

The God of the Bible in reality may cause pestilences to come to people - people who do not heed his warnings. 

DEUTERONOMY 28:15, 21-22 
15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:
21 The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it.
22 The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption, and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.

Dawkins is a known scientist. I will not guess when I say that he knows how pestilences happen. He knows that bacteria and viruses are the cause of pestilences. Considering that he is an evolutionary biologist and ethologist, he should not blame God for the pestilences that afflict humanity. He should rather blame his ancestors because he firmly believes that he came from single-celled organisms like bacteria, archea and protozoa. 

There is another way of looking at the fundamental importance of gradualness for Darwin. His contemporaries, like many people still today, had a hard time believing that the human body and other such complex entities could conceivably have come into being through evolutionary means. If you think of the single-celled Amoeba as our remote ancestor —as, until quite recently, it was fashionable to do - many people found it hard in their minds to bridge the gap between Amoeba and man. They found it inconceivable that from such simple beginnings something so complex could emerge. Darwin appealed to the idea of a gradual series of small steps as a means of overcoming this kind of incredulity. You may find it hard to imagine an Amoeba turning into a man, the argument runs, but you do not find it hard to imagine an Amoeba turning into a slightly different kind of Amoeba.” (Richard, Dawkins, The Blind Watchmaker, page 249).

God’s part in pestilences is in allowing them to happen to make people realize their mistakes and rebellion against Him and to bring them back to Him and have a life that is pestilence-free. 

HAGGAI 2:17 
I smote you with blasting and with mildew and with hail in all the labors of your hands; yet ye turned not to me, saith the LORD.

Being obedient to God’s laws can set a peaceful communal life that merits His protection and care against pestilences. 

EXODUS 15:26 
And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for am the LORD that healeth thee.

How can a God who wishes to protect His people from pestilences be pestilential? It's idiotic to claim He is! Actually, the God of the Bible in His creation has outlined the well-being not only of humanity but the entire animal kingdom and the plant kingdom as well. 

 It is a well-known scientific fact that bacteria and viruses are necessary for the ecological balance that sustains human life. Without bacteria and viruses, we will see a world full of carcasses of animals, humans and other living things. Take the case of the Fallen Monarch in the forest of the USA. Although it seems to be unaffected by the decomposition process carried out by bacteria and viruses, all scientists believe that someday it will finally decompose! But today, it is serving its purpose of being a tourist item. 



II CORINTHIANS 4:18 
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

The aging and the final passing away of stars are scientifically recorded in the Bible even before scientists have known that stars die. 

HEBREWS 1:10-12 
10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: 
11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; 
12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

GOD'S MEASURES TO PREVENT PESTILENCES 
Upon touching a dead carcass, animals or men, God’s people are commanded to clean themselves and wash their clothes in flowing water. 

LEVITICUS 11:27-32
27 And whatsoever goeth upon his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso toucheth their carcass shall be unclean until the even. 
28 And he that beareth the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you. 
29 These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind, 
30 And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole. 
31 These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even. 
32 And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, doth fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the even; so it shall be cleansed.

He cannot just say that these animals who died by themselves are infected with viruses and bacteria because during those times people were not ready to understand. There were no microscopes or optical instruments for them to see what God was referring to. But He is simply speaking about the spread of communicable diseases that the unseen bacteria and viruses may cause! 

One of His agents to prevent the spread of pestilences in animals and in humans is the creation of the vulture. 

God’s prohibition about sexual perversion is simply His way of preventing the spread of gonorrhea, candidiasis, syphilis, and the like. 

LEVITICUS 18:23  
Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

These immoral and perverse sexual practices of humans are blamed now to be the causes of AIDS, which scientists believe came from baboons. Here’s an excerpt from a research described by Hartford University - 

HIV-2 has been traced to the Simian Immune Virus (SIV) carried by sooty mangabeys. In fact, the genetic sequence of the two viruses are more alike than those of HIV-1 and HIV-2. During the 8th Annual Retrovirus Conference in February 2001 Beatrice Hahn and Eric Delaporte reported on cross species infections. They have documented nine cases in which chimpanzees, sooty mangabeys, and a mandrill passed SIV to humans. Antibodies to SIV were found in the victims' blood samples. They also analyzed blood samples of nearly 400 monkeys and baboons to assess the degree to which their antibodies bind to HIV. 18% of the samples exhibited strong binding and another 14% showed less strong binding. This result seems to indicate the possibility of further animal to human transmission! (http://uhavax.hartford.edu/bugl/hiv.htm)

If it is true that humanity evolved from monkeys, or chimpanzees, or primates, why is it that his immune system during the evolution period was not trained to produce antibodies against the AIDS virus, which is originally believed to have come from primates – his alleged ancestors? Dawkins, the atheist scientist, must explain this. 

The BIBLE AS ALWAYS IS SCIENTIFIC 

PROVERBS 5:10-11 
10 Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth; and thy labors be in the house of a stranger; 
11 And thou mourn at the last, when thy flesh and thy body are consumed,

All animals prohibited by God to be touched and be eaten among the Israelites are animals found by science to be the cause of modern plagues in human society! 

 In his report for CNN.com, Steve Osofsky in “How to keep viruses in the wild from finding humans,” (October 9, 2014) wrote - 

Bats seem to be a unique source of zoonotic viruses (viruses transmissible from animals to people) -- from SARS and Ebola to Nipah and rabies -- just to name a few. Because of this we should work to discourage the capture, killing and consumption of bats, the disruption of their roosting trees, and the establishment of farms right where they defecate and urinate. (http://edition.cnn.com/2014/10/09/opinion/osofsky-ebola-wildlife/)

LEVITICUS 11:19 
And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.

Camels are one of the causes of MERS. News from the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) reporting on MERS cases (2/9/2015) said - 

The WHO also reiterated previous warnings that people at risk for severe disease, such as those with diabetes, renal failure, or weak immunity, should avoid contact with camels, drinking raw camel milk or camel urine, and eating camel meat that is not thoroughly cooked. Also, the agency repeated its advice that those who work with camels should practice good personal hygiene and wear face protection and protective clothing. (http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-perspective/2015/02/mers-persists-who-cites-hospital-linked-clusters)

LEVITICUS 11:4 
Nevertheless these shall ye not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.

Meanwhile, pigs were found to be one of the causes of liver diseases. An article on “Hepatitis E Virus and Food” on the website of Food Safety, Authority of Ireland said - 

Emerging information on the causes of cases of hepatitis E acquired in Europe suggest that a possible exposure route could be contact with pigs infected with hepatitis E. Some recent studies suggest an association between hepatitis E infections and the consumption of undercooked pork products including wild boar. Studies in other European countries and the USA suggest that men above the age of 50 with pre-existing liver disease (e.g. cirrhosis ) are particularly vulnerable to infections with hepatitis E.

The information in a Q&A format can be found here (https://www.fsai.ie/faq/hepatitis_e.html). 

LEVITICUS 11:7 
And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be cloven-footed, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.

What about seashells? There are conflicting reports on shellfish but even travel spots warn their people on the dangers of shellfish. 

Shellfish is known to be a bearer of food illnesses, such as E.coli, Salmonella, Norwalk virus, and Hepatitis A. Shellfish is a bottom feeder, and feeds on the sewage and wastes that are thrown into the ocean. (http://www.theluxuryspot.com/reasons-shellfish-is-unhealthy/)

LEVITICUS 11:10 
And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:

To be pestilential is to be capable of producing or tending to produce infectious disease, to be destructive as shown by what we have discussed here. 

In sum, God the Creator has already forewarned man about certain plants and animals since the beginning. He was saying to man that these are an abomination and therefore implies a need for obedience to some law. First, physical life is not forever; it is fragile. Second, we need some intervention and that can only come from the creator. Therefore, when pestilence comes, one can be sure there were laws broken, and that God had a part in it. On that score he can be pestilential. But he can also not allow it. 

Pestilence to man is scary, but learning what pestilence can do should benefit man. Only when he subjects himself to laws that are meant to be can he appreciate pestilence when it does not come.

The God of the Bible, the Almighty, is not Megalomaniac


The God of the Bible is the most powerful being that exists. That is what “Almighty” connotes and it is not hard for believers to grasp that. He declares his being almighty. He declares his expectations and the result of coming up to his expectations. It is making sure that as Creator, his purpose is served. One day, he talked to the man he appoints for something great.


GENESIS 17:1 
And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.

God’s power is revealed in His creation. It is not uncommon that while working in the laboratories scientists stop awhile, being awed by the wonders of what they discover. Man is then without excuse if he cannot see God through his works.


THE ROMANS 1:19-20 
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them. 
20 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:

Things that are seen give us an idea of how powerful the Creator is. The enormous power of one of His smaller stars, our Sun, is calculated by modern scientists to last for another 10 billion years. But there are stars millions of times bigger than our Sun. Here’s an excerpt from a NASA publication. 



Whatever would happen, we can see that stars in the universe like the Sun are part of the handiwork of a great God and everything is not forever – but there are things eternal. Just as there are things seen, there are things unseen. Let us consider the unseen. It is said they are the eternal.


II CORINTHIANS 4:18
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

If things visible can give us an idea of how powerful their Creator is, our entire faculty, including our brains, cannot fathom the power within the invisible realm of reality. That explains why we need faith in God to see things and understand.


HEBREWS 11:3 
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

Things that are seen were made from things that are not seen. This again proves the scientificity of the scriptures. Scientists believe with certainty that unseen things do exist in the universe. This belief prompted the construction of the LHC or Large Hadron Collider, an instrument used to study the smallest known particles.

In an article written for The Huffington Post UK (03/07/2012) by Ted Thornhill wrote that a total of 10,000 scientists and engineers from more than 60 countries worked on LHC. The most powerful supercomputer system in the world cost £2.6bn to build, he said. The LHC houses 9300 magnets – pre-cooled to -193.2C, using 10,080 tonnes of liquid nitrogen. They are then taken down to -271.3C with liquid helium. What is the purpose of LHC?


The search for the God particle is a key task for the Large Hadron Collider, which straddles the borders of France and Switzerland, firing protons and lead ions around a 17mile circular tunnel. It was designed to reveal the secrets of the universe by recreating the conditions that existed immediately after the big bang.

Whether they will be able to find out what they are looking for after all the expense, time, and energy, there is still the God of the Bible to contend with. Take him away from the big picture and your understanding will not be complete.

Combine the fathomable with the unfathomable and it equals the power of the God Almighty! How can a God with unfathomable power be "megalomaniac" as charged by Richard Dawkins? By definition, is God someone with a psychological disorder with symptoms like delusions of grandeur and an obsession with power?

 The God of the Bible does not claim power – as power is inherent in His being! He is making known His power rather, through His creation. It is true to form that he has given man incredible brains but with limited understanding. This should make man realize that humans cannot in reality grasp the potentials of His power!


ISAIAH 55:8-9 
8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Gourav Gola wrote unbelievable facts about the human brain in UNB Facts (www. unbelievable-facts.com). Titled “10 Unbelievable Facts About Human Brain That Everyone Should Know” the article written July 2, 2012 mentions the first three important facts -


1. Nerve impulses to and from the brain travel as fast as 170 miles per hour. Ever wonder how you can react so fast to things around you or why that stubbed toe hurts right away? It’s due to the super-speedy movement of nerve impulses from your brain to the rest of your body and vice versa, bringing reactions at the speed of a high powered luxury sports car.

2. The brain operates on the same amount of power as 10-watt light bulb. The cartoon image of a light bulb over your head when a great thought occurs isn’t too far off the mark. Your brain generates as much energy as a small light bulb even when you’re sleeping.

3. The human brain cell can hold 5 times as much information as the Encyclopedia Britannica. Or any other encyclopedia for that matter. Scientists have yet to settle on a definitive amount, but the storage capacity of the brain in electronic terms is thought to be between 3 or even 1,000 terabytes. The National Archives of Britain, containing over 900 years of history, only takes up 70 terabytes, making your brain’s memory power pretty darn impressive.

Comparing the brain and the computer, the former is much, much bigger than any computer according to Chris Chatham. Writing about the important differences on www. Scienceblogs.com, his article posted on March 27, 2007, said among others –


Accurate biological models of the brain would have to include some 225,000,000,000,000,000 (225 million billion) interactions between cell types, neurotransmitters, neuromodulators, axonal branches and dendritic spines, and that doesn’t include the influences of dendritic geometry, or the approximately 1 trillion glial cells which may or may not be important for neural information processing. Because the brain is nonlinear, and because it is so much larger than all current computers, it seems likely that it functions in a completely different fashion…. The brain-computer metaphor obscures this important, though perhaps obvious, difference in raw computational power.

The most powerful computer known is the brain according to another research. In an article titled, “’Minicomputers' Live Inside the Human Brain” (www.livescience.com) dated October 29, 2013, Charles Q. Choi Live wrote –


The most powerful computer known is the brain. The human brain possesses about 100 billion neurons with roughly 1 quadrillion — 1 million billion — connections known as synapses wiring these cells together.

Neurons each act like a relay station for electrical signals. The heart of each neuron is called the soma — a single thin cablelike fiber known as the axon that sticks out of the soma carries nerve signals away from the neuron, while many shorter branches called dendrites that project from the other end of the soma carry nerve signals to the neuron.

The brain is therefore very powerful yet has its terminal points or boundary. And man keeps on trying to puzzle out secrets but some are reserved for the Creator, and therefore man is still searching about beginnings. God knows the capacity of man. He knows our limits, while most of the time we don’t. Our brains and the faculties in it and the extent of what they can do are exactly the perfect fit for the human – limited but enough for his needs. The limitation, though, is not what it is about but the end of what He had intended for man. Striving to go beyond the limits of thinking can be harmful to our person.


THE ROMANS 12:3 
For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

The existence of atheists like the species of Richard Dawkins displays the uncontestable truth that there are beings who have lost their sense of decency and reason - with habitual improper use of their brains or perhaps the lack of use thereof, or better still to say that they have reached the point of being psychopaths!

Dawkins, charging the God of the Bible as "megalomaniac" while believing that He doesn't exist makes him the worst psychopath ever! Dawkins will never win a case in any court of law considering the rule of estoppel!

 The Legal Dictionary defines estoppel as “a legal principle that bars a party from denying or alleging a certain fact owing to that party's previous conduct, allegation, or denial. The rationale behind estoppel is to prevent injustice owing to inconsistency or fraud.” This definition is echoed in the Encarta dictionary.




THE ROMANS 14:22 (RSV) 
The faith that you have, keep between yourself and God; happy is he who has no reason to judge himself for what he approves.

Notice that Dawkins enjoys the veneration of atheists and therefore continues on disparaging God through his books and earning from them. The sad fact is that thousands and thousands quote and re-quote him, thereby propagating his foolishness. Because he cannot win in debates with the clergy, he advances that he cannot disprove the existence of God, therefore is more of an agnostic. The newfound god of the atheists, however, still wears the hat of Most Famous Atheist and he acts up to it with the books he churns out for his bread and butter.

 By the truth revealed in the Bible we can infer that Dawkins was never happy in his life, with a heart full of bitterness, delusions, and malevolent thinking. But take the case of water. There is power in water. Water, unable to speak, displays its power, but there is a power that water cannot subdue.


SONG OF SOLOMON 8:7 
Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.

Take the case of knowledge. There is power in knowledge, but there is something that is above knowledge.


I CORINTHIANS 13:8 (RSV) 
Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.

Take the case of the word of God. There is power in the word of God that Dawkins laughs at as fiction. By His word He is able to perform wonders – from creation to forming man to judgment. No matter how one lies, God can see through that man.


HEBREWS 4:12 
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

God's word will prevail over every existing creation.


MATTHEW 24:35 
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

When the word of God said 3,500 years ago that "a man shall die and neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand,” it remains uncontested to this very day!


DEUTERONOMY 32:39 
See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.

HEBREWS 9:27 
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Science and scientists have their prophecies, their hypotheses since time immemorial, that someday death can be conquered by man's knowledge. This hope is hopeless though millions of scientists and their networks are working day and night to approach that dream! But this is a problem with no real solution because it was not meant to be. The physical death of man is part of God’s design. It has to come for a larger event in man’s life to take place. Take away purpose and you will never understand.
 
REVELATION 1:18 
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

When the Bible said that animals are tamable, it is proven to be true!


JAMES 3:7 
For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:

If the Bible says that there is something untamable, it is equally true especially in the case of atheists and Richard Dawkins. People who talk a lot without understanding are with untamed tongues.


JAMES 3:8 
But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

Only God can tame a tongue. Only when Richard Dawkins comes to know God will he stop speaking evil against him. His meager kindergarten Sunday school taught him nothing.


PROVERBS 15:4 
A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.

More to come.
God bless you.
