Journal Entry # 271
November 30th, 2010
Sometimes I can’t believe some of the stupid things people say. I am a realist and a sceptic but before I say anything I try to either makes sense of it or find credible evidence to back it up. During my conversations with the faithful and sometimes just anybody I get to a point where I just say what the fuck is going through this persons head.
It is very hard to talk with stupid at times. I guess I should really say ignorance. People want to believe something so badly that they will stop at any information that verifies in their mind what they believe.
I do get the same repetitive dribble from the faithful. It seems they were all schooled in the same program on how to witness and give testimonials. The Ray Comfort school of how to talk to an Atheist.

Using Common Sense to Debunk Evolution – CBN.com
If you understand Evolution at least the basics you will see how ridiculous these videos are.
Below just verifies what I am talking about. A few things said jump out at you.
Christian………… Yes Gary read the Shroud of Turin and you will not only see Jesus but you will see the scientific evidence of his actual existence. If you aren’t willing to even do a small amount of research to discover for yourself what we are telling you then you are cheating yourself of the beauty and comfort of a relationship with Our Lord and saviour. Many people have seen him. Read the Bible. Read Lee Strouble’ s books. He was an atheist as you are before he decided to do his homework and discover the truth for himself. Check out who Lee Strouble is. A very credible journalist and editor of the Chicago Tribune. And yes Jesus has spoken to me. If you read your Bible you will read many accounts of God revealing himself. I am sorry for anyone who takes an adversarial position but never takes the time to check out the voluminous data that is available for someone so that they can make an informed decision. Have you read about the Bible codes? Get books about that. Leading scholars from Harvard, Stanford and other leading and respected scholars and atheists agree that there are messages encoded in the old testament that have only been revealed because of the advent of computer technology. Albert Einstein an atheist at one time said that the more he studied the universe the more convinced he became that there is a God. The scientist who discovered DNA also became convinced that there has to be a supreme being to have come up with such a perfect identification system for living creatures. (I am of course paraphrasing). You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink. Let me ask you this, has anyone seen Shakespeare, Henry VIII, Socrates, any of the Caesars’, Pontius Pilate, etc. Get my point. Jesus was seen by many and what he had to say was so profound and life changing that people have followed his teachings for over 2,000 years. We know there were witnesses to his resurrection and they wrote about it. We know that Jesus’ own brother didn’t believe Jesus was the son of God until he saw him resurrected and then he became an Apostle of Christianity and was crucified for his teaching of Jesus ‘s teachings. There’s plenty of evidence but Jesus also requires FAITH. Did you know that all Biblical prophecy has been fulfilled. Did you know Christ’s crucifixion was predicted in the old testament before the world had ever heard of crucifixion. Gary my dear brother, don’t cheat yourself of external life. Don’t cheat yourself of the joy and peace and comfort of a relationship with Christ. Your answers are at your fingertips reach out and grab them. You will never regret you did. One last thing. Did you know they have disproven the theory of evolution? God bless you Gary on your search for the truth.
Gary David Currie …….First of all the shroud of Turin is not proof of anything but that there is a thing called the Shroud of Turin.
Secondly Einstein was never anything but an atheist. Lee Stroble I have seen his work and as a journalist he stops investigating where it supports his believe.
Look I have done plenty of research and that is why to this day I see no credible evidence.
It seems you and many stop at the investigation that confirms what you want to hear.
Truth is not a popularity contest.
Please show me where they have disproved evolution I am all ears.
Peace to you on your lack of searching and stopping with only what you like.
You see I have acquired knowledge about the items you mentioned but I have also continued as I question everything and nothing you have presented stands up.
Please show me this disproof evolution because to this day over 99% of scientist agree with it. I will listen to them over Lee Strobel.
There is no external life it is wishful thinking and magic does not exist.
Gary David Currie ………..I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE THAT YOU SAID THAT THEY HAVE DISPROVEN THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION. WOW.
Really 150 years of research by 1,000′s of scientists who have spent countless hours on this well acknowledged field and all of a sudden it is disproved.
Ok… Everything screams of repeating what little information this person has been told but the big one is saying that Evolution has been disproven. Of course I get the final plea to open my heart to Jesus. Yeah… There was so much more that they had said previous to this and this was their big attempt at offering me credible evidence.
A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, of the manifestations of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty – it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute the truly religious attitude; in this sense, and in this alone, I am a deeply religious man. (Albert Einstein)
I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it. (Albert Einstein, 1954)
I believe in Spinoza’s God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings. (Albert Einstein)
Seek the truth always
