Throughout history people have been awed and thrilled by retellings of their culture's creation story.

Aztecs would tell of the Lady of the Skirt of Snakes, Phoenicians about the Zophashamin, and Jews and Christians about the one true God—Yahweh. But there is one unfortunate group—the children of atheistic materialists—that has no creation myth to call its own. When an inquisitive tyke asks who created the sun, the animals, and mankind, their materialist parents can only tell them to read a book by Carl Sagan or Richard Dawkins.

But what sort of story are they likely to find? Should they be told, as famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking claims in his book The Grand Design, that "the universe . . . create[d] itself from nothing"?

Since Hawking's explanation is a bit too drab and not specific enough for bedtime reading, I've decided to take the elements of materialism and shape them into a purportedly accurate, though mythic, narrative. This is what our culture has been missing for far too long—a creation story for young atheistic materialists.Click me.

What I dislike is that some of these atheists abuse the notion of 'nothing' freely. They have no problem implicitly assuming the existence of potential energy, fields, spacetime, and then saying that the universe came out of this and therefore came out of 'nothing'. That isn't nothing. They are playing semantic games to avoid the actual philosophical question. Nothingness does not allow for quantum mechanical fields or relativistic spacetime to exist, it's really, nothing at all.

A Merry Christmas

 

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21

 

And A Very Wise New Year

 

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. Matthew 2:1-2

 

To All Pagans, Atheist Or Wicca Or Republican Or Democrat 

Or Butcher Man, Bakes And Candle Stick Maker

 

Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. 2 Corinthians 5:12

 

Love, Joe
