To the Dummies Who Call Themselves Atheists

December 5, 2014 Fridaty 8 p.m.

Perhaps “dummies” is not the right word. What they are really are “”ignoramuses.” And, there are millions of them, including world-renowned Physicist and best-selling author Stephen Hawking, who majestically proclaims, “There is no God!” Well, being a scientist, he should know that preceding his pronouncement, he should have DEFINED the “God” he is talking about. There is a passage in the Bible (Mathew 4:1-6) where Jesus is “led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the Devil,” and in ab exchange with the Devil is reported to have said, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down (from the top of a temple) for it is written: “he will give his angels charge of you, and on their hands they will bear you up lest you strike your foot against a stone.”

I too take issue with this characterization of “God.” The many references to God as He or Him begs the question> Does God have a penis?” Then there’s the Devil. If God created everything and is all-powerful, was the Devil one of “His” creations” And what about those Angels? I sure would like one of them to visit me for a chat. Maybe they can tell me WHY we were created and WHY I, Francis T. Sganga, exist.

I challenge Atheists to refute these thoughts:

I have been Created,
I can Think,
I Know Myself,
I am Creative,
I can Love,
I can experience Pleasure and Ecstasy,
I have a Sense of Beauty,
I intuit the Existence of a Supreme Being.
Therefore, to my Mysterious Mind,
there must be an ineffable Creator that
bestowed those Gifts upon me that I refer to
as my INTELLIGENT DESIGNER, rather than “God.”
