Humanists launch huge "godless" ad campaign

Humanists think. Indeed.  There's hardly anymore thought in the humanists' world view than his childhood school days show-and-tell: Just talk about what you can see with your eyes and feel with your hands. The "Humanists Think" slogan of humanists, atheists or by whatever stripe they wish to color themselves makes for a good sound bite, but like sound bites it too neither requires nor reflects any thinking. It's the same old oneupmanship of the American mindset: Thinking is better than believing. Of course, the reverse of that is no different: Believing is better than thinking.

The Speckhardt quotation illustrates this well enough: "We know that you can be good without God, but many folks in America don't know that," he said." I, as a believing theist, understand that without any problem. What Speckhardt and his brethren haven't and can't think about is how they would engage for a resolution in, for example, in a horrifically, all-to-common, (un)civil matter of homicide. One might anticipate nothing more than an adaptation of  the undiscerning Spechhardt's words, "It's quite obvious that  the Bible contains horrific material . . ." or something horrific has happened hereThe feeble, anemic inability of humanists to foster a godless world runs amok very quickly once he takes it beyond his personal comfort zone. Better yet, stay in the comfort zone. Let the advertising madman do it.

  1. the humanist world conducts itself far better than the godly world. you include the non humanists who runs amok in the humanist category.
    humanists have only human power and limited in their ability to control those who run amok. why cant you use your godly power.
    the task to jesus disciples was to preach the kingdom of heaven. i guess you need to understand the kingdom of heaven first before you start preaching.

  2. Raj, my aplogies. I just now (through IFD) learned that you had posted this comment. I've changed my settings to alert me in the future when people post comments.
    Now, to your comment. A comparison between, as you say, humanist world and godly world is a bit of oneupmanship. What does it get the person other than bragging rights?

    You are playing a pity card, Raj when you say humanists have [b]only[/b] human power.

    This blog and my interactions on IFD and elsewhere, Raj, are just a few instruments I use to teach and preach the kingdom of heaven.

  3. is there something wrong in playing the pity card? is that not what we are supposed to play before the very gods?

    and you have not answered "you include the non humanists who runs amok in the humanist category."

    it is not about oneupmanship or bragging rights. i am sick of christians who should be the light of the society spreading darkness.
