having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.(1 Peter 3:16) ESV
As a result of the meticulous way in which we’re building our case for the scientific validity of the Bible, the defense of popular science (SciPop) has crumbled.
The only defense that they now have is an attack on our character, which is why we chose the passage for today.
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
The backdrop to this has been the failure of science and the implosion of atheism as played out in the world of Twitter. We started our attack on popular science (SciPop) by being true to the Word of God. By so doing we found weaknesses in Galileo, Kepler Newton and Einstein and we exploited them. The weakness is the reason for the flimsy foundation upon which atheism is based. Atheists are convinced that they possess the intellectual high ground, the irony is that atheism can only thrive in an intellectual vacuum. There are three ways in which atheism is failing, what you may call 3 strikes.
- A growing body of data which proves that atheism requires willful ignorance,
- a formula for Atheism which Proves the Existence of God,
- the harmonization of empirical observations and physical evidence with the Bible.
Three strikes and you’re out.
Testing for God
Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.(Malachi 3:10)
Malachi 3:10 is the basis for an experimental procedure which is designed to give proof of God to anyone who will carry out the experiment. it is a predictive testable hypothesis.
The counter hypothesis is that all atheists will reject the experiment because they don’t actually want proof of God, the demand for it is made only because they have assumed that there isn’t any. As such, when atheists demand proof of God it’s merely rhetoric. The result? 100% of atheists reject the premise of the experiment.
- Call upon the name of Jesus Christ,
- believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
- confess your sin.
Atheism Proves the Existence of God
Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?(Job 39:9)
Atheism can’t exist without theism. A- is a prefix to the word -theism. It changes the word to mean the opposite. Theism came before atheism.
You can’t deny a God who doesn’t exist. It’s not possible to deny the existence of something that you have no knowledge of. If there was no God, then where does the knowledge of him come from? Many atheists immediately resort to parroting this statement with the word “God,” changed to unicorns, leprechauns, Harry Potter and so on. It goes like this: “I deny the existence of unicorns therefore they exist.” The problem is that Unicorns did exist, and they’re referred to in the Bible.
And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.(Isaiah 34:7)
The knowledge of them exists because they are (were) real. Harry Potter exists as a character in a story, this is wildly popular as books and movies. The knowledge of Harry Potter exists because Harry Potter exists. However, it wouldn’t have been possible to deny the existence of Harry Potter before J.K. Rowling wrote the first book about him, because the knowledge of him didn’t exist.
Atheism proves the existence of God. The fact that Twitter is full of people who are motivated by a desire to publicly deny God is proof of the existence of God. If there as no God then why would they need to deny Him? Atheism is theocentric.
Harmonizing Empirical Observations and Physical Evidence with the Bible
In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;(Titus 1:2)
The cause of the universe is obvious. That is the position taken as the starting point for Matty’s Paradigm. God can’t lie.
God can’t lie and the Bible is true is a Principle, not a Bible verse, which has been deduced from the Axioms and Corollaries of Principia Mattymatica. Every physical phenomenon or empirical observation is an effect which has a cause. The cause is relatable to what the Bible teaches us about the origin, history and future of the Earth. Atheism requires the denial of cause. Three strikes and you’re out.
