What if you were whisked into the heavens at lightening speed (a dream of some sort…) and found yourself at the pearly gates (optical illusion) which were wide open and St Peter standing just inside that open gate with a big ol “Welcome” sign (“was the sign meant for me?”)and he points to you and says “Are you the one looking for proof and evidence of God Almighty”? Atheist sticks chest out and proclaims “yeaaaah,that’s me”. St Peter continues “…if you are given proof of God will you cease the blasphemy and mockery?”
“Oh yes,guy with the harp, I sure will. You can count on it.”
St Peter only gives the atheist a knowing glance…..
St Peter accompanies the atheist to an area that is devoid of all people,animal,plant and tree. Nothing but open space. St Peter leaves him alone with his thoughts. The atheist feels a tap on his shoulder but is told not to turn around. Suddenly,a bright flash of light and before the unbeliever a mannish figure appears in the highest point of the wide open nothingness (it’s an optical illusion) and the figure nestled in the distance states “I am He that you seek” (that could be anybodies voice).The figure then waved His hand over the sky and thousands of stars began to twinkle (That’s a parlor trick….or another optical illusion. There is a natural explanation for it….somewhere)
The atheist then feels a tap on his shoulder again (that’s who was talking to me not that thing in the sky) but this time the voice directs him to sit down and look into the distance. The man sees a copy of himself sitting in a bar flirting with his secretary.(nobody knew about that,but that doesn’t mean it’s God.).
It then places the mans copy at a hospital. He is standing over the frail lifeless body of his mother.
“Why did you take her from me?” the copy says as he looks into the sky.
The atheist realizes “if this is God maybe He can tell me why”
“Hey God,why DID you take my mother from me? And why do you allow so much pain and suffering in the world?” The atheist spoke with unwarranted arrogance
God looks at him with fiery but caring eyes and replies “Why should I tell you?”
There is nothing but silence from the atheist.
“What have you done to deserve knowing the answers that you seek?”
“Your life has been a sham! You claimed to be logical but were illogical. You claim superiority but have no walking around sense PLUS you spit in my face with your mockery! You havent earned the right to ask me anything!!”
The atheist had little to say. This person claiming to be God was right but isn’t God supposed to be all-loving? If that’s true God should love me and forgive me no matter what.
“Hey God you’re supposed to forgive me for the bad stuff!! Whats the deal with all THAT?”
The atheist then facepalms himself and says “Why have I been talking to someone I don’t believe in?”
“There is still no PROOF for God anywhere.”
I have asked so many atheists what would be enough to convince them of God? It saddens me and at the same time surprises me not to get the response “It wouldn’t matter if there WAS proof for God because I STILL wouldn’t believe in Him!!”
Why do i get that answer SO often? It occurs to me that the few atheists that tell me “all atheists would change their minds about God if there was concrete proof of His existence.” which isn’t correct anyway because nobody can claim what another person will do because they share the same belief (yep,I said belief),but that aside,the responses i have gotten lead me to believe the bulk of atheists (especially new age atheists) are not concerned with finding proof for God but rather finding new ways to “think” God away. Sadly,these people admit to hating God and some make such derogatory comments that I would never repeat or reprint them. Obviously,the atheists in this group are trying to get out of being held accountable for their actions. They wish to live like hell with no consequences for their actions. In a way I can understand them wanting this worldview to be right and accurate,or as some say the “enlightened” worldview. For them to be so enlightened I can’t imagine anyone more in the dark.
