'Truly Atheism Is the Philosophy of Death'


I WAS interested in Bobby Hanvey's article in the News Letter with Richard Dawkins, the ardent atheist and one of the world's leading evolutionists.

He believes atheism could stop the Troubles in Northern Ireland. Many millions have suffered terribly and lost their lives because of this atheistic way of thinking. Atheism kills because without God there are no rules, anything goes. There are no absolutes, no 10 Commandments, society makes its own rules.

Atheists are on the forefront of efforts to legitimise euthanasia, abortion, drug taking, prostitution, pornography and promiscuity. All these things cause misery, suffering and death.

Atheism is the philosophy of death.

Some of the greatest evil has been perpetrated by those who have adopted an evolutionary approach to morality - Lenin, Hitler, Mao Zedong, Pol Pot. Atheist Sir Arthur Keith admitted that Hitler was consistent with his evolutionary philosophy.

He stated:"The German Fuhrer is an evolutionist; he has consciously sought to make the practice conform to the theory of evolution."

Stalin was also consistent with this: after reading Darwin, he became an atheist and had no basis for morality.

It was interesting to read that Dawkins answered Bobby Hanvey's question "Did the absence of God in Richard's life create a void and what did he replace it with?" His reply is very revealing. He said: "I replace it with many of the things anybody else does," and he mentions two things that God has placed in human personality: "Human love and the need for family life."

Francis Schaeffer, the great Christian thinker and philosopher says that atheism has the answer to the form of the universe not the personality of man. He say, "modern man is deeply plagued by the question, 'Where does love and communication come from'".

The Bible says, "God is love, love one another and love your enemies.
