by Moody Adams Atheists, masquerading under the name of “The American Humanist Association,” have launched a new offensive against God and the Bible.
The American Humanist Association, which has run ads critical of God and the national motto, launched a nationwide campaign Tuesday that directly challenges the Bible and the Quran.
“The campaign will include a television spot on NBC Dateline on Friday and print ads in major newspapers, including USA Today, the Seattle Times, the Atlanta Journal Constitution and the San Francisco Chronicle. Ads will also run in Metro trains in Washington, D.C., on billboards in Idaho, and on buses in select cities,” reports the Christian Post. One video ad features the renowned atheist Richard Dawkins giving the humanist take on intelligence. Responding to a Bible verse from Proverbs 3:5, which calls on believers to trust in the Lord and not lean on their own understanding, Dawkins says that belief should be supported by "evidence and logic" and not by "tradition, authority or revelation."
Either the man is ignorant of the Bible he is attacking, or he is trying to deceive people. Two preceding verses in Proverbs 3 say, “Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.“
Knowledge of “truth” is essential. This requires “reasoning” to determine what truth is. “Reason” appears 69 times in the Bible. God says in Isaiah 1:18, “Come now, and let us reason together…” Atheist Dawkins evidently has not read much of the Bible, or he is trying to deceive people.
If Mr. Dawkins had lived when wise men reasoned that the world was flat and held up by Hercules, would he have leaned to his own understanding? Or would he have trusted the Bible which said the world is round and hung upon nothing?
