To the Chief Musician. Set to “Mahalath.” A Contemplation of David. The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; There is none who does good.(Psalms 53:1) NKJV
Rather than demonstrating that “science” is based on evidence whereas faith isn’t, ironically Christopher Hitchens showed that he didn’t understand what evidence is or how it’s used.
In a rather embarrassing twist, here’s the new definition of Hitchens’s razor:
Hitchens’s razor is epistemological sleight-of-hand which fails to distinguish justified belief from opinion. It’s a tragic case of acquiring fame in the name of something that you don’t understand. It’s a major deity in the atheist pantheon, the subject of a lot of special pleading.– Hitchens’s razor, new definition
Here at Matty’s Paradigm we like to inject a hearty dose of humor into our discussion, but we never want to loose sight of how serious the consequences may be of not taking eternity seriously. There’s only one way to ensure that you will have everlasting life, and that’s to be saved by grace through faith in the name of Jesus Christ.
- Call upon the name of Jesus Christ,
- believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,
- confess your sin.
