Atheism is a delusion based primarily on testosterone. Testosterone creates a desire for sex. People, mainly men, wish to indulge their desire for promiscuous sex, therefore they imagine that nothing exists except physical things and therefore there are no consequences to their actions other than the obvious physical ones. Disappointed women, ruined children, etc are none of their concern.
I believe that the growing popularity of Internet pornography will cause a growing popularity of atheism. I think that the current crop of anti-religious best sellers, which apparently began in 2004, is an indication of this.
Evolution is the substitute atheists have invented for God. It is the delusion that huge amounts of purposeful complexity can develop spontaneously over a very long time. Evolution satisfies the atheist’s natural curiosity about his origins by saying “evolution made us”.
Atheists imagine that they are morally superior to religious people by assuming that any crime committed by any religious person proves that all religious people are evil while imagining that any crime committed by an atheist was caused by something else, not his atheism.
Atheists are actually often very cruel, brutal, selfish and violent. The only limit on an atheist’s behavior is fear of law enforcement, which is not nearly strong enough to make people honest, kind and peaceful all the time.
In spite of all the evidence to the contrary, atheists imagine that King Josiah and Ezra the Scribe fabricated Judaism. (This concept is called the Documentary Hypothesis.)
It is obvious that non-physical things exist. [By non-physical, I don’t mean non-real. I mean something which is beyond human comprehension and which is not bound by the laws of nature.] The physical universe must have been created since if it were infinitely old it would have reached a state of complete entropy an infinitely long time ago. The universe cannot be a perpetual motion machine. The creator of everything physical must be something non-physical.
It is obvious that the universe has an intelligent designer since purposeful complexity cannot occur spontaneously. A book, for example, cannot write itself.
It is obvious that the Torah was given at Mount Sinai because large-scale conspiracies, where a very large number of people attempt to deceive others and none of the conspirators confesses, are implausible. It is implausible that the Ten Commandments are a hoax as much as it is that the Apollo moon landings were a hoax.
Orthodox Judaism has the potential to make people happier.
Orthodox Judaism has the potential to bring world peace.
