Richard Dawkins: "Jesus Would Have Been An Atheist If He Had Known What We Know Today"

Man, Dawkins surely outdid himself this time. Yea, if only Jesus Christ in his all-powerful and all-knowing state 2,000 years ago would have grasped what Richard Dawkins and his fellow enlightened post-modernists knew today, by golly, he would have denied Himself and His Father on the spot.

Meglomania has never had such a tough opponent.

Dawkins will soon be able to offer his learned opinions to Jesus Himself. Should be an interesting meeting.

“In the beginning, the Word [that would be Jesus, the only begotten Son of God] was with God, and the Word WAS God.”

Dawkins’ claim is just bizarre. I guess “intellectuals” can say pretty much anything and get away with it.

“But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD”. And, I suppose, ignore Dawkins.

Dawkins is a brilliant scientist, an articulate speaker, and a strong writer, but as a visionary, he lacks imagination. I was listening to him on “Start the Week” and he seems to be unable to grasp that there are things that we don't know that we don't know.

Jesus would not change his faith knowing what we know today.

But, I think some of our countrymen who have gone before us might reconsider what they were fighting for given what America has become today.

Dawkins is suffering from “Lookitmee-itis”. You know, a kid whose mother ignored him so he screamed to her over and over “lookit meeee” each time he jumped in the water or climbed a tree or sat at a piano. Now, he needs a much bigger audience, and apparenly no one has been paying attention to his lame comments. So, p*** off as many people as he can to get the attention mommy didn’t provide.

Jesus would not have believed in Himself???? Not if He bought into what the public schools taught Him. Of course, what would actually happen is that He would stand up and teach the teachers, astonishing them with his understanding and answers.

Richard Dawkins: "Jesus Would Have Been An Atheist If He Had Known What We Know Today"

OK...Let's assume that Jesus knew 2,000 years ago what "we" know "today"....WELL THEN EINSTEIN...Wouldn't he also know what lies ahead 2,000 years from now, as well? And you, Mr. Dawkins...Do you know what lies ahead 2,000 years from now? Hmmm???

There, fixed it.

We don't 'know' nearly as much as we think we do and we believe far more than we think is possible.

“That’s all right. If Dawkins knew what I know today he’d be a Christian.”

If Dawkins knew NOW what he will come to learn first hand sometime in the next few decades, then he (hopefully) would have enough sense to fall on his face and say “My Lord & my God!”

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” Hebrews 9:27

Do a Wiki list of Dawkins publications ...

I know guys that have had more refereed journal publications last year than Dawkins has in his life.

Here I thought he was a theoretical physicist with command of the mathematical disciplines ...

When I was in graduate school, I wrote a paper with a brilliant fellow ... Here is his publication list:

Wrong. “For we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, that everyone may receive the things done in his body, according to that he has done, whether it be good or bad.” 2nd Corinthians 5:10. That includes Dawkins, you, and me.
