The Fool

1Corinthians 1:27(a) But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise;

An atheist friend of mine wrote:

"There is hardly any proof that the major minds of our times believe in religion. This denigrates all of the scientists who do not–which is most of them."

CBS 60 Minutes correspondent Andy Rooney said, 

'I am an atheist, I don't understand religion at all. I'm sure I'll offend a lot of people by saying this, but I think it's all nonsense.' He said Christian fundamentalism is a result of “…a lack of education. They haven't been exposed to what the world has to offer.”* 

Is this true?  Are Christians just some fanatical cultists who are steeped in superstition and ignorance? 

Contrary to my friend’s line of reasoning and society’s assumptions:

  • We have electricity as we know it today because of an scientist who was a Christian.
  • The Big Bang theory was proposed and developed by a Christian.
  • The father of modern genetics and genome research is a Christian.
  • Copernicus, Galileo, Descartes,Newton, Boyle, Faraday, Mendel, Kelvin either all Christian or believed in God.
  • Darwin himself even said it was impossible to theorize a universe without a designer.
  • Encyclopedia Britanica: "Firmly denying atheism, Einstein expressed a belief in "Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the harmony of what exists."

Psalms 14:1(a) …The fool hath said in his heart, [There is] no God.

A Berean classic.

  2. They are just people, aren’t they, Helen. I guess the world views us all as dumb though, huh!
