THE ANGEL POSSENTI:
In November of 2014, an atheist group held a crowd-sourcing contest to come up with an alternative version of the Ten Commandments. Mythbusters host Adam Savage (an avowed atheist himself, so naturally someone with tons of problems) judged the competition and helped the committee decide on the final ten.
While I have no problems with the concept of crowd-sourcing, the final results can be littered with problems if you start off with flawed assumptions and premises at the start.
This project is a good example of this.
Below are the final ten atheist commandments and my refutations of them in red. Keep in mind some of my refutations are thoughts that I believe atheists don't want me to have when hearing them yet said thoughts bring up valid counter-points all the same (unlike a certain dead British "horseman" who showed he didn't understand much of anything concerning the Commandments).
So here we go:
-Be open-minded and be willing to alter your beliefs with new evidence.
(What if the new evidence shows religion is in the right? Then what? If past experience has taught me anything, atheists would come up with any excuse--no matter how nonsensical--to dismiss it or claim it's biased, thinking that refutes something, which it doesn't. If you think about it further, this one is quite self-refuting).
-Strive to understand what is most likely to be true, not to believe what you wish to be true.
(Just like you wish that these made any actual sense? :) Again, like the previous one, what's to stop the atheist from dismissing something because they don't feel like listening? Where's the check on this? Are you really expecting us to believe atheists are going to be suddenly more honest given their poor track record?)
-The scientific method is the most reliable way of understanding the natural world.
(This is flawed from the very start because it ignores the assumptions the scientific method operates under, mostly about logic, how we can trust in the predictability of the material word, the de-personalization of nature…not to mention the scientific method was invented by a Christian or how the whole phrase itself is asking us to pass a subjective opinion off as an objective truth.)
-Every person has the right to control over their body.
(This is a common excuse you find in abortion advocates to justify the murder of children. It's flawed because you have instances like pregnancy when your body is not entirely yours. Clearly, the committee didn't think of that. Also, this ignores the fact some choices people make concerning their bodies are superior to other choices.)
-God is not necessary to be a good person or to live a full and meaningful life.
(Clearly, being an atheist doesn't lead to anything meaningful. Besides, the notion is wrong since it has been pointed out over and over in psychological studies and in now post-Christian Europe our lives and nations are much better off with God than without.)
-Be mindful of the consequences of all your actions and recognize that you must take responsibility for them.
(I have looked at several atheist thinkers, and I can assure you few if any encourage people to take personal responsibility, and of those that do, they either treat it as an afterthought or they encourage the government to clean up their mess. No surprise that atheists have an overwhelming support for communism.)
-Treat others as you would want them to treat you, and can reasonably expect them to want to be treated. Think about their perspective.
(Why should I do that if I am of the persuasion that there is no absolute right and wrong? Why should I care how others feel? Are atheists just not aware when you reduce right and wrong to feelings, you trivialize both morals and feelings?)
-We have the responsibility to consider others, including future generations
(Again, why should I care about future generations if there is no such thing as right and wrong? What if considering others gets in the way of what I want? Am I supposed to believe my wants should be subservient to the group? And by the way, how does this explain why atheists have family sizes much smaller than Christians?)
-There is no one right way to live.
(Then what are you doing babbling on about rules on how one should live their lives? For that matter, where and how does should and ought even factor into this? If there is no one right way, how do you know the scientific method is best? Doesn't this sound like it contradicts number 2?)
-Leave the world a better place than you found it.
(Oh, this is rich considering the hell every atheist regime has ever created. Do I need to go any further on this?)
Once again, atheists, you failed to unseat the eternal wisdom of God. Compared to God, all of you are idiots.
