Atheists Always Lie #03: Physics and Biochemistry and Evolution

Please support our work via Paypal or Bitcoin or Patreon. Atheists make a lot of claims on science, but what’s so funny about it is how few scientists will back up many of the claims they make, and how few scientists are actually Atheists.  Indeed, Atheists are a minority among scientists even in places like China, where Atheism is rigorously enforced by the government, and most Nobel laureates in fields like Physics are Christians even today, with a good representation from believing practicing Jews and some other religions. And that’s because belief in God is rational and useful in a field like Physics, and is well-evidenced!

Tune in for this off-the cuff discussion!

No really, even around the world, Scientists are NOT majority Atheist.

Atheists Always Lie #01:

Atheism is no longer just the average person who decides they don’t believe in God or don’t find the evidence for God they’ve seen so far convincing. It is now an ideological hate movement and cult ideology, rooted originally in Marxist thought but now embraced by many libertarians and “conservative” right-wingers. The cult gets by by simply lying about the evidence wherever the find it.

In reality we have evidence in multiple fields in science. So to kick off an ongoing series we’re dubbing “Atheists Always Lie,” we will look at just one of the areas where we have evidence for God in contemporary mainstream science: Near Death Experience.

Taking Professor Stick to the Woodshed

A Deflating & Escaping Atheism hangout responds to Professor Stick, with a great video summarizing modern atheistic and scientism/materialist arguments.

The video begins with the usual intros and noting that Escaping Atheism is back after a 2 week hiatus. Max Kolbe discusses his serious technical issues, which required four trips to the repair shop.

Rob mentions that Mr. Spark, a regular commenter and fan, requested that Deflating Atheism and Max Kolbe take on a response video by Professor Stick. Professor Stick responded to a short video of Professor Alister McGrath, an atheist molecular bio-physicist who eventually became a Christian. Before watching clips of Professor Stick’s response video, Max Kolbe discusses Professor McGrath’s background in more detail. Rob and Max discuss the potential difficulties of the format and they begin the video.

Why is Escaping Atheism so vulgar and caustic?

Max Kolbe and Missing the Mark discuss why the Escaping Atheism occasionally (or frequently) uses vulgar and caustic language.  [Warning: Following video has adult language starting at 3:00.]

Max Kolbe introduces the video with defining Escaping Atheism’s mission of secular criticism of atheism. He mentions the question he’s received from more than one Christian of why social media interactions involve swearing at times.

Conversation between Missing the Mark and Max breaks in where Max discusses places and times where the culture is rough and tumble, ie, the wild west, inner cities, and rough suburban neighborhoods.

Max mentions that Christians have no obligation to meet the culture in the same rough style. He also acknowledges that vulgar language can make people look juvenile.

Max then discusses his freshman year at Catholic school and his homeroom teacher, who freely swore in the classroom. He enthusiastically discusses the frank language used by his St. Augustine monk with specific examples. Offers several examples of American Catholic sub-cultures that swear frequently. Ends the segment mentioning that the use of vulgar language is not directly considered wrong/sinful and that no one has an obligation to use words that make them uncomfortable.

Captain Capitalism Doesn’t Understand Christianity or Atheism
