Atheism, for Good Reason, Fears Questions
That theists and open-minded agnostics and atheists on the pro-Darwinist side of this debate are finally engaging the same fundamentalist atheist dogma that intelligent design proponents have engaged for several decades is a good sign. Fundamentalist atheists are of course fighting back ferociously, because they understand, as perhaps the accomodationists dont, the profound implications of an understanding of the natural world that is not causally closed.
Teleology is obvious in nature. Atheists and materialists intrinsically deny the reality of teleology-- Aristotelian final causation-- in nature, yet nothing in the natural world can be understood without reference to teleology. Science is saturated with reference to purpose and goals of natural things. Atheists deny teleology, because acceptance of teleology in nature raises devastating questions about their atheist faith.
Fundamentalist atheists-- secular priests-- fight ferociously to extinguish challenges to their faith, because they understand that to raise the question of teleology in nature is to answer it. Atheism, for good reason, fears questions.

Thanks for the ping!
Seldom has a response so fully validated the original point.
Nods and smiles.
Like all Christian denominations, some members are saved and some are not. Of course, the more liberal the denomination, the greater the proportion of unsaved vs. saved.
I suspect you belong to a very liberal denomination that you find too conservative for your radical materialist sympathies, and that your Church attendance is infrequent at best because your pastor or priest does not spend enough time debunking the Bible to satisfy your rabid commitment to the Temple of Darwin cult.
THanks for the link. Rabbi Wolpe makes some excellent points!
You didn’t answer my question: are Catholics and Episcopalians Chistians? Yes or no (to each)?
“So I got my period today....”
No, I think you confused the reason men go gay. Or blind. Or become monks. Or remote survivalists.
What a hoot...one glance at DC blows this nonsense to kingdom come. :0
Yup...liberals truly have no shame!
Why the inordinate interest in someone else's genitalia? Don't you have some of your own to occupy yourself with?
“I not only profess to be a Christian, I am in fact a Christian. I need no lectures from the fascist wing of the faith, represented by you, on how to read and interpret the book. You and your ilk do a great disservice to Christianity, as your actions and positions are more in line with maintaining a social pecking order in your megachurch than they are with the true practice of Christianity.
Your weak understanding of the New Covenant, while a thrilling conversation enabler at your post-service coffee klatches, is a mockery of the truth of Christianity. To paraphrase Pogo, you, yourself, are the enemy you seek.”
I already answered your question. Simply belonging to this or that denomination does not make you a Christian. You must be Born Again. Are there genuine Christians in the Catholic and Episcopalian denominations? Yes.
Although once someone becomes a genuine Christian in the Episcopal church, they generally leave the denomination in search of a Church that affirms the innerancy of scripture, and as such does not ordain women, or push the homosexual agenda, or any number of other leftist/unbiblical causes.
Sorry. I do not engage with ad hominem attackers like you.
PS Was I right about the following in my reply #24? For convenience sake, here it is again:
“I suspect you belong to a very liberal denomination that you find too conservative for your radical materialist sympathies, and that your Church attendance is infrequent at best because your pastor or priest does not spend enough time debunking the Bible to satisfy your rabid commitment to the Temple of Darwin cult.”
I see. GGG represents the cult of “ME! ME! ME!” One is not a Christian unless GGG and his band of holy cavity inspectors say that they are. You’re a fraud and your faith is a fraud. You are no Christian, and provide but entertainment here with your cretinous posts and your predictably vacuous dialog with your sloping forehead bretheren herein.
Isn’t it nice to know that the Evos care enough about us to go out of their way to tell us that they don’t care about us...LOL!
LOL! You know, if I didn’t know any better, I’d think you were him! If anybody had actually heard of Buck W., I’d say you should take this show on the road!!!!
Thanks for the ping, Forrest.
LOL...the anti-Bible thumper, thumper has spoken!
That’s a rather ineffective response.
