Lying for Christ: Charles Darwin renounced evolution on his deathbed.

It is typical for Christians to make false reports and fabricated lies, especially on issues regarding people renouncing something on their death bed. It gives them some kind of “superiority” telling people that an infidel accepted Christ as Lord and Savior before leaving this world. 

Here’s a good example.

Charles Darwin renounced evolution on his deathbed.

They say that before Darwin died on April 19, 1882, he was holding a Bible and he renounced the theory of evolution accepted Jesus.

The story came from a certain Lady Hope who told a gathering at the educational establishment founded by the Christian evangelist Dwight Lyman Moody at Northfield, Massachusetts that she had visited Darwin on his deathbed and that he had expressed regret over evolution and had accepted Christ.According to her story, she visited Darwin on his deathbed and saw him reading the Epistle to the Hebrews. He asked for the local Sunday school to sing in a summerhouse on the grounds, and had confessed: "How I wish I had not expressed my theory of evolution as I have done." He went on, she said, to say that he would like her to gather a congregation since he "would like to speak to them of Christ Jesus and His salvation, being in a state where he was eagerly savouring the heavenly anticipation of bliss."

Dwight Moody encouraged Lady Hope to publish the story in the Boston Watchman Examiner. The story spread, and the claims were republished as late as October 1955 in the Reformation Review and in the Monthly Record of the Free Church of Scotland in February 1957. 

However, Darwin's daughter Henrietta, who was with him during his last days, said Lady Hope never visited during any of Darwin's illnesses, that Darwin probably never saw her at any time, and that he never recanted any of his scientific views. "I was present at his deathbed," Henrietta wrote in the Christian for February 23, 1922. "Lady Hope was not present during his last illness, or any illness. I believe he never even saw her, but in any case she had no influence over him in any department of thought or belief. He never recanted any of his scientific views, either then or earlier. We think the story of his conversion was fabricated in the U.S.A. . . . The whole story has no foundation whatever."("Charles Darwin's Death-Bed: Story of Conversion Denied," The Christian, February 23, 1922, p. 12.)

Lying for Christ?

Design, or Chance – are there no other options?

Obviously you already heard about the “Watch Challenge,” right? No, it’s not the William Paley argument. It’s also known as argument from improbability. Ok… it goes something like this: If you put some watch parts in a box and shake it, will it produce a watch? As a witless Christian would probably think – the argument is a dead end for atheism. You see, if a simple watch cannot be created by chance, what more a complex human or the universe itself. Therefore, there is a great designer AKA God!

The watch argument (argument from improbability) states that complex things could not have come about by chance.

That is true!

I've notice that a lot of people demand that we MUST RESPECT their religious views. Respect... such a big word. Do they really know the meaning of the word "respect?"

Now, is there such a thing called “mutual respect” between a God believer and a “godless” person?

Personally, I find some Christians (Catholic or Protestant) friendly. I have theists’ friends, but that’s it. We prefer to talk about politics or trivial stuffs. Even so, we never talk about religious beliefs.

Now, try opening the Bible and read Psalms 14:1. How about reading Psalm 53: 1-6, Romans 1: 18-32 and Romans 3: 10-18. It that what you call "mutual respect?"

Ah, so as an atheist it is OK for me to respect the idea that I will be burning in hell because I don't believe that Jesus is the Son of God. I am destitute of reason or of the common powers of understanding because I don't believe God exists, or I am corrupt, wicked and vile, right?

In Islam for example, atheists are known as Kafir. The word Kafir is derived from the Arabic term Kafara which means to "to cover up or hide something." So a kafir is a person who covers up and hides the truth. For those who believe in Islam, the word Kafir is the worst word in the human language. A Kafir, or disbeliever, will be punished for eternity in the fire of hell. 

Try reading the following in the Qur’an so you will know how  these Muslims really look at atheists: 40:35, 83:34, 25:77, 47:4, 6:25, 86:15, 6:111, 23:97, 37:18 and 8:12. Furthermore, take note: A Muslim is not the friend of a kafir - 3:28. Believers should not take kafir as friends in preference to other believers. Those who do this will have none of Allah's protection and will only have themselves as guards. Allah warns you to fear Him for all will return to Him. 

So, when they say “ respect”, does that mean I cannot even criticize their ideas. That I should just shut my trap and let these God believers proselytize their faith, their archaic philosophy, their twisted science, their wanton disregard to the other person’s ideas? 

Respect huh?

Let There Be Light

There are two things a Christian will do to prove his holy book: Disregard the findings of science or re-interpret the scriptures to fit scientific data. Here’s a good example of how some God-believers will do everything to make his Bible scientific… and what does Thermodynamics got to do with it?

In the beginning...

In the beginning, humans created god into his image and likeness.

The Case of the Missing Brain

I’m quite surprised that this “argument” still persist – Nah, not because it’s a good argument, but because only a dullard will use this argument (no offense). Yet still, they use it. Maybe because most atheists will just ignore this as “dumb” and some Christians think that it is being ignored because no atheists can debunk it… really huh? Gwarrk!! Damn, I think I just vomited on my shirt.

Anyway, let me just point out why this argument is mostly used by those Happy Meals short of fries.

Natural Bang

Ignorance is not an argument and misinformation is never a rebuttal, yet sadly a lot of theists and science denier have been using these to boost their rumpus against rationality. Hmmm… is this what they mean when they say “Faith begins when reason end?”

Take this as an example. 

Most Christians I encountered in Facebook still cannot comprehend a naturalistic explanation of how the universe existed – uhhh… it is impossible for the universe to appear without the act of my God.

Really huh?

All About Theory, Atoms, and Big Bang

Typical Christian Ignorance...

Theory/ Scientific theory

So, it’s always been said here and in other groups about the difference between a theory and a scientific theory – is it that impossible to learn huh?

Ok! Ok… here we go again!

To Believe or Not To Believe

I often wonder why Christian preach their belief with atheists like me. In the first place, preaching is only effective to people with the same wavelength (same religious belief, same world-view). Now, here’s an example courtesy of a certain Joerelson Jonem Ng.

According to his bluster, an atheist choose to become an atheist – so, did I choose to be an atheist?  Well… it depends on how you will look at it. Between blind faith and rationality, yes I choose the later. Belief in a god depends primarily of accepting dogmas, doctrines and ignorance – stuffed with guilt and fear. On the other hand, rationality works on inquisitive mind and critical thoughts. 

Ang kamangmangan ay hindi isang argumento laban sa ateismo.

Ignorance is not an argument, and what good example is this rant from a certain Vivencio Baribar Jr. Ok… it’s not worth it but, I find it funny. So, since this was written in Tagalog. Oh well…

Dahil daw naniniwala ang mga atheista na sa unggoy (?) nag-mula ang tao, pag-namatay daw eh ilalagay daw ang katawan sa puno o kahoy at doon mabubulok.

Ayon pala kay Mr. Baribar Jr. ang unggoy pag namamatay eh sa puno nakalagay. Hindi nahuhulog ang unggoy sa puno pag namamatay? Ewan ko sa kanya, pero sa totoo lang eh nakakatawa ito kung iisipin. Ayon pa kay Mr. Baribar Jr. ang paniniwala daw ng mga atheista eh ang tao ay mula sa unggoy kaya ang isang unggoy (na kadulad daw ng mga atheista) ay namatay, saan din daw ba ito babalik?

On Doubt and Reasoning

As I visit  a local bookshop here in Manila, I stumbled on one of Joyce Mayer (that popular Christian author and TV Evangelist) books. I think it's called "Battlefields of the Mind." It's a devotional book intended for the Christian audience, but what sparked my interests was that chapter on doubt and disbelief.

Easy Life?

I guess some Christians doesn't understand their own Bible.

The movie is dead.

So, you really want me to give you what I think about the movie God Is Not Dead, Ok… It was a boring show. No, not because I’m an atheist, but because I am a movie buff.

Not that I always encounter believers asking me to watch the show and then expecting some God-given miracle to happen – transforming me instantly in becoming a Christian after watching it, but I have my share of ding-a-lings.

The show is a typical Christian propaganda: Good Christian, bad atheist – that’s it.

Josh Wheaton, an evangelical college student, enrolls in a philosophy class taught by Professor Jeffrey Radisson, an atheist, who demands his students sign a declaration that "God is dead" to pass.


Why was this “professor” not been reported to the Dean’s office? We’re not talking about grades here. Is there any university that allow this? Anything can happen in a movie.

So, Josh is the only student who refuses to sign. I guess every student in that school doesn’t have a student hand book except for Josh. That made the atheist professor furious so he took his “Debate me” card and challenged Josh to a debate with him but agrees to let the class members decide the winner. Obviously, we all know the topic of the debate.

In both Round 1 and Round 2 of the debate, the atheist win – giving the Christian all the drama in the scene. You know, the all-time favorite “persecuted Christian” bullshit. Yet, on the 3rd round – because God is good… the Christian win and he even converted the atheist professor to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior before dying in an accident – END OF STORY.

Ok, you guys wants details?

In Round 1, Josh cites the Big Bang as evidence that God created the universe according to Genesis (“Let there be light”). The atheist professor didn’t made any rebuttal. He just stated Stephen Hawking, taunting the Christian if he is smarter than Hawkings – WHAT!!!! And he is a philosophy professor? Wow!

In Round 2, Josh refers to Hawking’s comment that philosophy is dead, adding that perhaps their philosophy class shouldn’t exist. Again, the philosophy professor never made a rebuttal. So much for being a straw-man.

So in Round 3, Josh asked the professor "Why do you hate God?" After Josh repeats the question twice more, Radisson explodes in rage, confirming he hates God for his mother's death that left him alone despite his prayers. Josh then casually asks Radisson how he can hate someone that does not exist. In the end, some dork stand up and said, "God's not dead." Almost the entire class follows and Radisson leaves the room in defeat.

You may asked, “Where’s the fucking argument?” You may also noticed that the “atheist” is not even an atheist, but someone who just hated God.

Now for the question: “Will this movie convert me into a believer?”

The movie focus more on the issue of hating god. I don’t hate god, I don’t believe it exists. So, naturally, this film didn’t really gave me an option whether to believe or not to believe. The movie also didn’t gave me any rebuttal. It only tries to give me the God is Good card. To analyze it further, the movie is intended for the Christian audience, not for atheists. It’s a “feel good” Christian movie to boost “Christian” confidence. Also, the movie reinforced the false idea that there are “No atheists in foxholes” so I guess this will inspire Christians to pray that atheists like me should contract cancer or undergo some other misfortune in order to become a Christian.

So, as an atheist what can I say about the movie?
Well, not only God is dead, but the movie is as dead as a cold corpse.
