Atheist Tests

BANG!! The theory of evolution of the Coca Cola can.

Billions of years ago, a big bang produced a large rock. As the rock cooled, sweet brown liquid formed on its surface. As time passed, aluminum formed itself into a can, a lid, and a tab. Millions of years later, red and white paint fell from the sky, and formed itself into the words *Coca Cola . . . 12 fluid ounces.*

Of course, my theory is an insult to your intellect, because you know that if the Coca Cola can is made, there must be a maker. If it is designed, there must be a designer. The alternative, that it happened by chance or accident, is to move into an intellectual free zone. Do you believe that the Coca Cola can have no designer?

Did you know that the eye has 40,000,000 nerve endings, the focusing muscles move an estimated 100,000 times a day, and the retina contains 137,000,000 light sensitive cells?

George Gallup, the famous statistician said, *I could prove God statistically; take the human body alone; the chance that all the functions of the individual would just happen, is a statistical monstrosity.*

Albert Einstein said, *Everyone who is seriously interested in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the universe, a spirit vastly superior to man, and one in the face of which our modest powers must feel humble.*

Even Charles Darwin said, *To suppose that the eye could have been formed by natural selection, seems I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.* If man cannot begin to make a human eye, how could anyone in his right mind think that eyes formed by mere chance? In fact, man cannot make anything from nothing. We don*t know how to do it. We can re-create, reform, develop, but we cannot create even one grain of sand from nothing. Yet, the eye is only a small part of the most sophisticated part of creation, the human body.

Do you know of any building that didn*t have a builder? Do you know of any painting that didn*t have a painter? Do you know of any car that didn*t have a maker? If you answer *YES,* for any of the above give details.

Could I convince you that I dropped 50 oranges onto the ground and they by chance fell into ten rows of five oranges? The logical conclusion is that someone with an intelligent mind put them there. The odds that ten oranges would fall by accident into a straight line are mind-boggling, let alone ten rows of five.

From the atom to the universe is there order? Did it happen by accident or must there have been an intelligent mind? What are the odds of 50 oranges falling by chance into ten rows of five oranges?

The declaration, *There is no God,* is what is known as an absolute statement. For an absolute statement to be true, I must have absolute knowledge. Here is another absolute statement: *There is no gold in China.* What do I need to have for that statement to be true?

A. No knowledge of China
B. Partial knowledge of China
C. Absolute knowledge of China

*C* is the correct answer. For that statement to be true, I must know that there is no gold in China, or the statement is incorrect. To say, *There is no God,* and to be correct in the statement, I must be omniscient.

I must know how many hairs are upon every head, every thought of every human heart, every detail of history, every atom within every rock. Nothing is hidden from my eyes. I must know the intimate details of the secret love-life of the fleas on the back of the black cat of Napoleon*s great grandmother. To make the absolute statement, *There is no God,* I must have absolute knowledge that there isn*t one.

Assume that you have 1% of all the knowledge in the universe. Is it possible, that in the 99% of the knowledge that you haven*t yet come across, there is ample evidence to prove that God does indeed exist? If you are reasonable, you will have to say, *Having the limited knowledge that I have at present, I believe that there is no God.* In others words, you don*t know if God exists, so you are not an *atheist,* you are what is commonly known as an *agnostic.* You are like a man who looks at a building, and doesn*t know if there was a builder.
