It's unbelievable!

Should I give up on Facebook?  Or ought I, at least, 'unfriend' all of the former pupils who asked to be friends, and whose own posts I regularly read?  Or, perhaps, I should simply be grateful for the opportunities that the current situation provides.

Just a few minutes ago, one of my former pupils posted the following photograph of a statement made by a 'community'; that identifies itself as "Peace begins when religion ends":

"Christianity: The popular belief that a celestial Jewish baby who is also his own father, born from a virgin mother, died for three days so that he could ascend to heaven on a cloud and then make you live forever only if you symbolically eat his flesh, drink his blood, and telepathically tell him you accept him as your lord and master so he can remove an evil force from your spiritual being that is present in all humanity because an immoral woman made from a man's rib was hoodwinked by a talking reptile possessed by a malicious angel to secretly eat forbidden fruit from a magical tree. Sounds perfectly plausible..." (sic)

Well, no-one who knows me could ever expect me to simply 'move on' and ignore such a statement. My response was as follows:

"Modern humanism. The popular belief that nothing became something. That the something that came from nothing then managed to do what has been indisputably proven to be physically impossible, and add genetic material (that also came from nothing else) to itself in order to become something else. That this kept happening over billions of years - in spite of the fact that, if there had been those billions of years, the known universe would have been totally different from what it currently is understood to be. The belief that conveniently disregards the amazing complexity of interacting molecular machines - microscopic machines that are as precise and intricate as a mechanical watch, but instead of being run on gears and springs, are powered by the fundamental rules of physics and chemistry. The belief that the amazing order, and precision found in the cosmos either "just happened", or is a direct result of the 'laws' of physics - but fails to explain the origin of those very laws!

Sounds even less plausible than the above! However, I suspect that my personal knowledge and understanding of physics and biology, is a tad greater than the author of the piece above has of the Bible! Check out my blog at for loads of information - and some useful links!"

I could, of course, have written/typed much more.  However, there tends to be a limit to what most folk are prepared to read on a Facebook posting.  I simply trust that some who do read what I shared will access this blog, and read some of the most recent posts that I have published here.

If you are a believer, you will realise that the original statement is full of holes and misunderstandings.  Perhaps some of those who read it will even spend the price of a fish supper, and purchase one of my books (or both of them  - price of two fish suppers, when purchased as e-books, and definitely less fattening, and more nutritious!) - see the top of the page.  Whether, or not, anyone does, I trust that they will realise that the humanistic, evolutionary worldview that they appear to espouse, is as much a matter of belief as anything else!
