Abortion




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and China demons.

1) Implant ideas in pregnant mothers, especially younger ones, that they don't have the funds to rear the
child.

2) Suggest that having the baby will create great embarrassment to themselves and family and boyfriend.

3) Don't let them think of the win-win solution of adoption!

4) Let them think they are not beautiful when they are pregnant and insure they terminate pregnancy to
restore their beauty.

5) Let their boyfriend harass them to get rid of the baby so that they can have more intimate time
together.



Alcohol
ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Europe and Russian demons.

1) Most humans will experience pain or suffering in their lives and they will want to escape from this
feeling. What better way than for you to suggest a low content alcoholic beverage. This will introduce
them to it's effects.

2) Encourage them to drink more as their tolerance to the alcohol increases.

3) Be creative and have them come up with funny and cute drink names which will expose them to more
potent alcohol and combinations of alcohol.

4) Invent drinking games to put competition and pride on the line.

5) Make sure that they drink alcohol quickly so that they won't know what hit them until it is too late.

6) Let their friends cause peer pressure and embarrass them into drinking more and more.

7) Have bars dimly lit so the atmosphere is cool and mysterious and so that one won't notice bloodshot
eyes as much.

8) Since wine is mentioned in the Bible and Jesus turned water into wine, make them think it must be
acceptable.

9) Use advertising to make them think that the opposite sex will desire them more.

10) All advertising for alcoholic beverages should use the highest quality models so one associates
alcohol with sexuality.

11) The most important beverage at sporting events should be alcohol. This way they will associate good
times at games with alcohol and vice versa.

12) Encourage tail-gating outside of sports stadiums.
13) Make so many varieties of various categories of alcohol so they could spend a lifetime exploring to
find the perfect taste for themselves.

14) Make wine tasting a hobby. Make it chic.

15) Continue to vary the shape of the beer bottles so that humans will think that the shape will really
affect the way it flows out and tastes as a result of the flow.

16) Change the bottle caps so they can be screwed off by hand so one won't have to have a bottle
opener.

17) Have drive-thru alcohol retail outlets to save time.

18) Create HAPPY hours to make them get good deals and consume alcohol fast.



Aliens




ALERT: Notifications especially for demons in Nevada, USA and England but spread across the world.

1) Let many people claim to see U.F.O.'s, Unidentified Flying Objects so that they will be convinced that
there are aliens visiting our planet.

2) By believing in aliens, humans will NOT think that they are that bloody Son's special creation.

3) By believing in aliens, humans will NOT think that they are that bloody Son's smartest creations.

4) By believing in aliens, humans will begin to think that they are just one of many species that evolved
and won't think that bloody Son created them for a purpose! Never let humans think they have a purpose!

5) We all know quite well the wording of the Bible as that is mandatory so that we might manipulate it to
our advantage. Do NOT let them understand that humans are supposed to be aliens to this planet earth
and are just temporarily visiting.
6) Each time they read the word "alien" in the Bible, make sure they are distracted and think of pretend
little green men from outer space!




Automobiles




replica of first car--Benz Patent Motorwagen
Lamborghini Reveton


ALERT: Notifications especially for USA, Japan, South Korea, China, England, German and Russian
demons.

1) Make them toil and toil to pay for these luxuries!

2) Let them move farther away from families with this ability to commute to work.

3) Let the land be polluted with asphalt and concrete to permit better travel.

4) Let enthusiasts die prematurely at high speeds.

5) Let them put them on pedestals and make idols of them.

6) Let those that have higher priced ones become idols to other humans.

7) DECODING more... 123456789 10101010101
Bible, Geneva




ALERT: Notifications especially for Switzerland, new continent, Rome, Spain, and Englands' demons.

1) In the year of 1533, let Mary Tudor, Bloody Mary, become Queen of England, to try to reinstate Roman
Catholicism. Be careful though because too much persecution of Protestants could drive them out of
England into a safer refuge in another country.

2) My demons, you have failed me! This Marian Exile has driven hundreds of Protestant scholars to
Geneva, Switzerland. They will now get support from the pesky John Calvin and John Knox.

3) My demons, what have you done? They have created an anti-Catholic Bible, the so called Geneva
Bible and it is now complete within seven years!

4) Upon viewing this Geneva Bible, I see that it has chapters and verse numbers to facilitate studying. It
has verse commentary. You fools let a study Bible be created right under your wings!

5) Do not let this version of the Bible spread to other nations!

6) I have great dismay. That Geneva Bible is in the hands of the Pilgrims and it has arrived in the year
1620 in Plymouth of the newly discovered continent. It will be used to start a new nation under God! What
an epic failure on your parts. I can't be everywhere at once. I am not omnipresent!

7) This Geneva Bible has now become a threat to Rome and England. My disgust can not be put into
words at this moment.
Bible, Mis-quoting!




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and all other demons.

1) Learn from me my fellow demons. Twist the words of the Bible whenever possible to your advantage.

2) Look at my epic success in the Book of Genesis, Chapter 3!

3) However, when I tried to use scripture against that bloody Son in the New Testament, regrettably He
did not follow my Biblical suggestions.



Billions of years




ALERT: Notifications especially for all scientific countries' demons.

1) A god of evolutionists is time. Initially insert into the evolutionists' minds that we could of went from
nothing to humans in millions of years. Then slowly revise that time frame by increasing it so that no one
will notice.

2) Although we know that bloody Son was responsible for creating the universe within six literal 24-hour
days, batter them with the idea that totally random things happened which allowed humans to go from
nothing to what they are.

3) As the father of lies one of my best is to make humans feel they are the result of random mutations and
therefore have no purpose!




bin Laden, Osama




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Middle Eastern nations and Indonesia's demons.

1) Let humans put the blame on Osama bin Laden for all the terrorism instead of them believing that we
exist.

2) If and when Osama bin Laden is apprehended, create many conspiracies to cast a shadow of doubt on
what is truth.

3) If Osama bin Laden is apprehended and killed, let the USA gloat in a victory because that is contrary to
the Bible, which you all know quite well. ['Do you think that I like to see wicked people die?' says the Sovereign
LORD. 'Of course not! I want them to turn from their wicked ways and live.'" Ezekiel 18:23]
4) If and when Osama bin Laden is apprehended, do NOT let it be known that he had a treasure trove of
pornography at his compound as it will cast a dark shadow on pornography.



Bipolar disorder




ALERT: Notifications for ALL demons.

1) My greatest success was the day I lied to Eve and she ate fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good
and evil! Why you may ask? Well that is when sin entered the humans. The blueprint for humans, the
DNA, Deoxyribonucleic acid, was evidently corrupted.

2) Each generation the DNA gets more and more corrupted and the mental health deteriorates.

3) Unfortunately many with this bipolar disorder will go on to be successful creative humans like Bach,
Beethoven Abraham Lincoln, and Mozart. But so many will be very self-destructive and not seek medical
help and self medicate themselves with alcohol and drugs, hopefully to an excess!
Careers




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and China demons.

1) Make them think that careers are more important than families.

2) Encourage them to take jobs up the corporate ladder in distant cities to break ties with family, friends,
and neighbors.

3) Let them think MONEY is the solution to all their problems and that accepting a transfer or more time
consuming promotion will help them.



Church
ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and South Korean demons.

1) Propagate the thinking that BIGGER churches are BETTER churches. This will ruin the sense of
intimacy and if we corrupt the pastor it will give a broader base to corrupt the attendees!

2) Distract the attendees by fashion. Let the women check out the latest fashion trends and let the men
peruse over the more and more scantily and sexily dressed women.

3) Implant the idea that this quiet time is good for planning the Sunday afternoon activities.

4) Why not let them plan their work week too!

5) Let the pastors not teach from the Word of God but from their personal experience.

6) Let the pastors teach that tithing plus more is demanded of them by God to put financial burden on the
attendees when in fact we know that bloody Son loves a cheerful giver.

7) In certain denominations, like Roman Catholicism, make the priests teach that in order for sins to be
forgiven they must come to them to forward the message on to the Father in Heaven. Of course we know
that all Christians are priests and that bloody Son is the High Priest and there is no need for other
intermediaries.

8) COMPLICATE the Gospel at ALL costs! Make them think WORKS is required to get to Heaven.
Confuse them with that book by James.
Collecting




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and other wealthy nations' demons.
1) Remember that humans inherently like to own things. Anything to fill the gap in their heart. It doesn't
matter their value but let them pursue collecting things!

2) It does not matter what they collect but get them collecting!

3) It is easy. Let them get ONE THING and like it and purchase it. Then let them stumble across a similar
thing and like it and purchase it.

4) Especially let there be good values on the first few purchases as possible to get them started.

5) After they have started collecting don't let price be an object!

6) Let them travel great distances for another fix, another find!

7) I have included a photo of an owl collection. Isn't it wise?

8) Let time and money be wasted. Better to waste than to use it to bring glory to that bloody Son!



Conspiracy theories




SATAN: Did the U.S. have foreknowledge of the attack on Pearl Harbor and not act so that the U.S.
could enter World War II?
SATAN:
Was there just one lone gunman in the school book depository who could use a cheap mail order
rifle to shoot the President from behind and cause the Presidents head to go in the direction from
which the bullet came? Did the government permit this to happen for national security reasons?




SATAN:
Did the USA really have a sophisticated space program capable of sending men to the moon with
limited fuel and exposure to radiation or did they fake things to make the U.S.S.R. worry and
falling behind in their space program and to divert attention from the Vietnam war? Why didn't
other prosperous countries land on the moon?
SATAN: Let President Nixon resign because of the Watergate scandal. Was that the REAL reason
or was it convenient to get rid of President Nixon for something else he did?
SATAN: Did the U.S. have foreknowledge of this attack or even arrange it to profit from the
disaster?

ALERT: Notifications especially for USA, Japan, German, and Afghanistan demons.

1) Remember there are several goals for conspiracy theories. The first is to let people spend time and
perhaps waste time researching them.

2) Use them to divert attention from more serious issues like researching that bloody Son.

3) Exaggerate the conspiracy theory to make the conspiracy theorists loose credibility.

4) Don't go overboard and make the conspiracy TOO WILD or humans will quickly disregard it.

5) In some cases the conspiracy theory won't be a theory but will be FACT! Let that be revealed only
when it is to our advantage. Communicate to Satan Directly if you have questions.
Creation Museum




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA demons.

1) An Australian born Kenneth Alfred Ham has and will be a thorn in our side. He wants to build a
Creation Museum. Let him raise funds to build it and let them build it in the state of Kentucky in the USA.
Kentucky is not looked upon incredibly favorably and many will think the Creation Museum is the result of
radical hillbilly dolts. No offense to dolts!

2) Let people who visit the museum focus on dinosaurs and NOT on the message of salvation from that
bloody Son!

3) Let adults be distracted by young children so they don't take in all the facts from exhibits.

4) Let their high-tech theater have malfunctions whenever possible to distract humans from the message.

5) Upon the opening of the Creation Museum, let protesters take to the air with planes pulling banners to
discourage visitors from potentially coming.

6) Don't let Christians put their money where their mouth is by supporting this Creation Museum with
financial gifts!
Dawkins, Richard




ALERT: Notifications especially for demons of the USA and European nations and all other countries
focused on science.

1) Corrupt his mind into thinking there is no God.

2) Inspire him to write a book. Have him call it The God Delusion.




3) Let it include such nonsense as "The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant
character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive,
bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal,
pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully."

4) Let other smart thinkers around the globe read it to blossom our kingdom!

5) Allow it to rise to the top of the charts as a New York Times bestseller!



Dead Sea Scrolls
The Dead Sea with caves in background:




The Qumran #4 cave near Dead Sea. Cool that there is a cross in it!:
A jar in which Dead Sea Scrolls were found:




An actual part of a Dead Sea Scroll:
Shrine of the Book, Israel Museum, Jerusalem where some Dead Sea Scrolls are now stored. It is
shaped to look like a jar lid in center is the scroll handle:




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Israel and Middle Eastern nation's demons.

1) Unfortunately for us but fortunately for that bloody Son, the Dead Sea Scrolls hidden away in the caves
around the Dead Sea have been found. We MUST at all costs distract human's attention away from them
and belittle their significance!

2) For you see my servants, the scrolls have been dated from 100 - 300 B.C. They include every book
from the Old Testament except for the Book of Esther, which doesn't have a word for God in it. As you
and I know, the Old Testament has so many prophecies for the coming Messiah, that bloody Son!

3) If humans realize that these scrolls were written prior to that bloody Son being born, we can't disprove
that the bloody Son is indeed the Messiah, the Christ, the Savior!

4) Muslims believe that the text of the Old Testament has been corrupted after that bloody Son was born;
however, if this comes out, humans will know that the Dead Sea Scrolls match letter for letter to the
modern day printing of a Hebrew lettered Old Testament. Do you see the havoc this can create? That is
why we have to keep humans busy with unimportant relaxing entertainment.

5) Let humans travel hundreds of miles for a sporting event but don't let them go to a Dead Sea Scrolls
exhibit like the one held at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. 4/29/1993-8/1/1993. That was a
disaster in that many came to follow that bloody Son after that event. And then if that was not enough,
you let them come to Chicago to the Field Museum which brought them creditability also. You have failed
me additional times as well!



DNA




Deoxyribonucleic acid
ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and other scientific oriented countries' demons.

1) Unfortunately my dear servants of the Father of Lies computer technology that we use to rapidly
spread lies can also be used to help decipher the language of DNA. Be discouraging to computer
scientists and let terminology be barriers to slow deciphering the actual human genome.

2) We of course know that the bloody Son wrote in letters, words, sentences, paragraphs and chapters in
the DNA in every fricken cell in the humans their blueprints. We can't let this get out or certainly humans
might be lead to think that they were indeed created and created for a purpose.

3) Let pride enter into the scientists so that they pontificate with long techno babel so that the average
Adam and Eve won't have a clue as to what they are saying.
Drugs




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Europe and Russian demons.

1) Most humans will experience pain or suffering in their lives and they will want to escape from this
feeling. What better way than for you to suggest drugs! This will introduce them to it's effects.

2) Encourage them to do more intense drugs with greater consequences as their tolerance to simpler
drugs, like marijuana increases.

3) Be creative and have them come up with funny and cute drug names which will expose them to more
potent drugs and combinations of drugs.

4) Invent drug games to put competition and pride on the line.

5) Make sure that they do drugs quickly so that they won't know what hit them until it is too late.

6) Let their friends cause peer pressure and embarrass them into doing more and different types of drugs.

7) Have bars dimly lit so the atmosphere is cool and mysterious and so that one won't notice drugs being
sold or swapped.

8) Make so many varieties of drugs so they could spend a lifetime exploring to find some that perfectly fit
their taste.

9) As addiction on drugs increases, the demands for them will increase. They won't be able to afford them
so whisper to them to commit robberies and burglaries to generate quick cash and don't alarm them if
they kill someone in the process.

10) Drug selling is a great foundation for gangs. Don't let gang leaders miss out on the opportunities to
increase wealth for leaders and ruin the lives of followers.
Economics




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Japan and China and Europe and Russian demons .

1) Convince the world that one currency is needed.
2) Fluctuate the value of that currency with rapid INFLATION and deflation to destroy personal
wealth especially of those that don't own things of real value like gold and silver or jewels or land.

3) Where at all possible let corrupted governments over tax the poor and middle class and under tax the
rich. (Born free and taxed to death logic)

4) Create tension amongst the workers by generally allow males to earn more than females.

5) Let unions of workers to be formed to bring safety to the workers but create rivalry between
management and the union to decrease productivity.

6) In industrialized countries, like the USA, start slowly outsourcing the manufacturing to slave paying
countries like China. Then let the government of China with it's new found wealth purchase ownership of
the USA through bonds and other means.



Education




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Japan and China and German and demons.

1) Make these silly humans think that knowledge is more important than wisdom.

2) Have the teaching trend to more memorization and less logical thinking for we don't want logic to get
into these human minds.

3) Bombard the students in grade school and high school with advanced concepts that were previously
taught by the previous generation in colleges and universities. This will keep the students busy and
separated from parental influence.

4) In many cases, parents won't be able to assist their children with their math homework because of new
processes to come to mathematical answers and children may think their parents are stupid and think
they are stupid about their belief in Jesus or the Bible.

5) Similarly, parents won't be able to assist their children with rapidly advancing computer technology or
other rapidly changing fields and children may think their parents are dumb and think they are dumb
about their belief in Jesus or the Bible.

6) Discourage home schooling so that humans can attend public schools where we set the standards and
where we eliminate the Word of that bloody Son and curtail prayer. We do NOT want prayer for it is the
most powerful tool in a human's arsenal.



Elderly




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Japan and China and Russian demons.

1) Encourage children to move great distances away from their elderly parents in pursuit of their dream
career.

2) As younger generations walk by the elderly on the sidewalk act as if they are not there.

3) Isolate the elderly in their homes or nursing homes.

4) Let their retirement finances be in turmoil because of the volatile stock markets.
Energy




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Japan and China and demons.

1) Convince automobile owners that they need more and more horsepower in their engines so that more
and more oil will be consumed. This will create a demand on oil and create wars over it.

2) The increased consumption of oil and the gasoline from it will increase pollution and further shorten the
life of humans.

3) Use more and more electricity to cause more pollution from coal and ultimately nuclear power.
Environment




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Japan and China and German and Russia demons.

1) It is imperative that PROFIT is more important than a healthy environment because money corrupts
often and takes away focus from that bloody Son and because it will shorten the life of humans so that
they might not find that bloody Son.

2) Let the most populous country in the world pollute so much by saving money on environmental controls
so that they can manufacture goods at the lowest possible prices and have economic warfare and
dominance.

3) Let humans focus on cleaning the environment and make it more important than having a relationship
with that bloody Son.

4) Encourage humans to say "Mother Nature" instead of referring to the one who really created the
universe, that bloody Son.
Evolution




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and India Russian demons.


1) It is most imperative that we work to make humans think that they are the result of   r   AnDoM
chance so that they feel they have no purpose.

2) Let scientists not understand the global impacts that have happened and how they affect carbon
dating.

3) Let men try to bring glory to themselves by creating false fossils to get a claim to fame.

4) Let men never get a handle on finite mathematics and probability theory. For if they do, they will laugh
the evolutionist out of the halls of academia.

5) Start misinforming humans as a very young child by having educational shows that say millions and
billions of years.

6) Have children really grow fond of dinosaurs so that they can accept the false truth that humans didn't
co-exist with them and associate them with millions of years.
Family
ALERT: Notifications especially for USA, Japan, Middle Eastern nations, China and Russian demons.

1) At ALL costs break up the family!

2) Tempt the father or mother to have an affair. Quite possible that will cause division.

3) Encourage the children to desire drugs for once on drugs they will need to steal to pay for them and
will likely get caught and sent to jail.

4) A child on drugs can be viscous to their parents.

5) A child on drugs can cause death in other family by automobile accidents. Why not spread the
calamities?

6) Encourage children to watch lots of television (T.V.) to learn more evil habits and separate them from
precious time with their family. You could get them to see thousands of murders and violence and illicit
sex and they will become indifferent and desensitized to them.

7) Watching television will encourage them to desire more and more material items. Which will cause
them to get a job or make BOTH parents work. Oh to make the parents think that material item gifts will
make them better parents. Quite the contrary. It will cause more time to separate them!

8) Encourage children to listen to lots of music on radio or personal listening devices to learn more evil
habits and separate them from precious time with their family. Encourage them to listen OVER AND
OVER to the songs to program their unsuspecting minds.

9) Create new definitions of family including a man and a man and a women and a women. Some of them
will be attracted to each other because of genetic transmission errors and others will become gay or
lesbian by behavior modification.

10) Create limits on the number of girls that can be born in a family. Implement in the largest country--
China.

11) Encourage abortions to keep human populations low.
Forgiveness




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Japan and China and German and Russian demons.

1) That bloody Son rants about loving your enemies. Don't let humans forgive so that gnaws and gnaws
away at them so that they can't talk with that bloody Son or read His Word.

2) If humans don't forgive they will always be looking for revenge and it is so sweet. They can start more
conflicts and wars to eliminate and dwindle down the human count.

3) Make sure that movies and TV shows and songs reinforce the concept of REVENGE!
Gangs
ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Japan and China and Russian demons.

1) Create a sense of family in the gang superior to that amongst their own personal family.

2) A gang is a business. Increase profits by taking more turf and selling more drugs.

3) An added bonus of selling more drugs is that the humans will get addicted and will commit more theft
and burglaries to pay for their nasty habits.

4) Many a gang war will happen further eliminating humans before they find that bloody Son.
Government




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Japan and China and German and Russian demons.

1) Confuse the masses of people. Create many types of governments around the world and let them fight
over which form is the best!

2) Let there be division in a country so that numerous political parties will be formed with goals that
contradict so that progress will be slowed down. This will waste time so that people focus on the minutia
of these debates and not think of or about that Son, Jesus!

3) Let civil wars break out within the countries to waste resources and let them kill each other before they
get to hear about that bleeding Son!
Harvard University
ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and England's demons.

1) It is IMPORTANT to start formalized higher educational facilities so that we can taint the humans
further.
2) In 1636 AD create "New College".

3) In 1639 let John Harvard, an English clergyman donate 400 books and sterling silver to the New
College.

4) in 1643, publish a brochure with these words: "To advance Learning and perpetuate it to Posterity;
dreading to leave an illiterate Ministery to the Churche"

5) in 1650 in honor of John Harvard let them change the name to Harvard College. We will be luring
Christians...

6) Train many a Puritan minister here at Harvard.

7) In 1708 let Harvard get it's first president who is NOT a minister: John Leverett. Yes we will indeed
slowly bring change!

8) In 1805 let the Unitarians take over Harvard.

9) In 1850 let Harvard be known as the Unitarian Vatican.

10) From 1869 - 1909 let the president of Harvard, Charles W. Eliot, eliminate the favored position of
Christianity and open things wide open to student self-direction and of course what we love, self-
destruction!

11) Oh my what we can do in a few hundred years to ruin eternity for many!




Healthcare
ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Japan and China and Europe and Russian demons.

1) Help escalate the cost of medicines by greedy pharmaceutical companies.

2) Make some doctors think that they are gods.

3) Let some doctors never give credit to healing by that bloody Son but take credit for it by fine treatment.

4) Let the costs be so HIGH that people will start to think about assisted suicide to terminate life, hopefully
before they get to know that bloody Son.

5) Let abortions be considered health care!
Homelessness




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and poor third world nations' demons.

1) Let prosperous humans think that the homeless are just Lazy!

2) Let healthy humans think that the homeless became homeless because they are drunks and drug
addicts.

3) Make sure to discourage financial gifts to homeless people by telling the potential giver that the
homeless person will probably just buy some cheap wine.

4) Insure that nations as a whole forget and ignore the homelessness issue.
Housing
ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and other prosperous countries' demons.

1) Make humans think they deserve it.

2) Market them to them subliminally through movies and TV.

3) Require BOTH husband and wife to work so that they will have little time for their children or to attend
church.

4) Don't let them know that they should build their mansion and wealth in Heaven. That bloody Son is
always teaching that!
Insurance




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and other prosperous nations' demons.

1) Instead of people helping people, outsource that to private companies that will try to make a profit on
fears of disasters.


2) In insurance contracts let the   LARGE PRINT giveth and the small print take it away.
3) Let the insured violate commandment number nine (9)-- Thou shalt not lie. (Falsify applications)

4) Encourage the insured to violate commandment number (8)-- Thous shalt not steal. (Falsify claims)
Islam




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Europe and Indonesia and Middle Eastern demons.

1) Have imams stress that Islam is the God specified follow on to Judaism and Christianity.

2) Do NOT let devout followers of Islam know that the Koran, Quran, contradicts prior revelations in the
Old and New Testament.

3) It is imperative that followers of Islam are taught that the Old and New Testaments have been
corrupted over time and that Mohammad received the correct revelations directly from God.

4) Never let followers of Islam learn in depth about the Dead Sea Scrolls as this definitively proves that
the Old Testament existed prior to that bloody Son coming and that it has not been altered from 100-
300BC till modern day, 2011.

5) Do not let Islamic and Christian believers try to build bridges to each other by initiatives like this
internet site: https://sites.google.com/site/buildingbridgestomuslims/home or initiatives by Moody
Memorial Church at this internet site: http://www.moodychurch.org/staff-directory/raouf-boulos/

6) It is so important that Muslims believe in works and that Allah will judge them perfectly and that Jesus,
that bloody Son, did NOT die on the cross.

7) Make Muslims be mesmerized with virgins. Let them put great emphasis on that bloody Son's earthly
mother, Mary, and on the 72 virgins that men will get when they get to Heaven.
Jefferson, Thomas




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA demons.

1) This human, Thomas Jefferson, is indeed brilliant. Let him inspire millions around the globe with his
intelligence and perfection.

2) Let him perfectly corrupt the Word of God by editing the Word of God by having him create, The
Jefferson Bible.

3) Let free thinking people think that they too can pick and choose verses from the Bible that they like.
Make them have a buffet mentality.
Judaism




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Israel and German and Russian demons.

1) Write this down. Do NOT forget! Make sure that Jews expect a Messiah, a Savior, a Christ, that will
overthrow the Roman government and therefore will miss that the bloody Son, Jesus, is in fact the
Messiah!

2) Let the Jews have a prominent foothold on the media and thereby deemphasize any positive light on
that bloody Son.

3) Permit them the Jews to have a strong powerful army in Israel and to be allies with the United States.
This will help create enmity between the Muslims in the Middle East and lead to many, many wars which
will bring humans to death prior to them learning about that bloody Son.
King David




ALERT: Notifications especially for Israel and USA demons.

1) Let pride kick in for King David.

2) Ensure that Bathsheba takes a bath at a time that King David is in a position to take notice of her.

3) Inspire the King to lust after her.

4) Motivate the King to invite Bathsheba over to the palace.

5) Let them have in appropriate relations suitable only for a married couple.

6) Let one sin lead to another for King David and let him go to the extent of murder!

7) Isn't it wonderful how sin takes over?
Movies and TV




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and England and Indian demons.

1) Humans are inherently a visual enticed and motivated biological unit. Slowly corrupt movies and
television.

2) Make sure to take the value out of the family.

3) Show divorce is common and acceptable.

4) Make smoking cigarettes cool. This will help the humans waste their money and get cancer and
increase health care costs.

5) Always make it cool for actors to have alcoholic drinks in their hand.

6) Have lots of nightclub and bar scenes to get them thinking of drinking, lewd dancing, and sex.

7) Promote gambling through emphasis on Las Vegas.

8) Stifle the people who say gambling and lottos are taxes on the ignorant.

9) Further promote lying by marketing Las Vegas with a slogan of "Whatever happens in Vegas stays in
Vegas."

10) Make the father figure dumb. Start that in cartoons like the Simpsons.

11) Make television shows where the young women are very promiscuous and in fact encourage teen
pregnancy. Perhaps create a show on it.

12) Even if the TV show is not nasty, insert nasty commercials! They might not be expecting them.
Music




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Japan and China and German and Russian demons.

1) Utilize words, repetition of words, repetition of words, repetition of words, and repetition of words to
program the unguarded human mind.

2) Direct and help produce music videos which are quite revealing and suggestive.

3) Create a whole network for disseminating these music videos. Use the clever name MTV- Music Tele
Vision. Oh my the vision it will tell.

4) In churches let their be great division as to whether church music should be on an organ or guitar or
have the words of Psalms of that adulterer we got to, King David, or more relevant words.
Party in Hell




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Russian demons but ALL will benefit.

1) Create jokes like, "I am covered. I have friends in both places."

2) Brainwash them into thinking that the cool people go to Hell and the stuck up hypocrites go to Heaven.

3) Make them believe it will be one big party in Hell.

4) Never, ever, ever, let them know the truth of Hell. This would scare them to the bloody Son.



Pets




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Japan and European nations' demons.

1) Awe. The cuteness of a puppy. Make the bratty little children beg and nag their parents to buy them a
puppy!
2) Once they get the puppy they will have to spend time, time, time on training it, and walking it, and
feeding it, and brushing it, and washing it, and, and, and, .... This will cut into the humans' time for
growing closer to that bloody son and of course their other family members.

3) Pets can be a HUGE sinkhole for money! This will curtail their donations to Christian faith based
organizations and churches.

4) These pets can chew up and damage the interior of the home and it's furnishings which mean that
items will have to be repaired or replaced which will cost more money which means less money for
charity!

5) If at all possible don't let the humans look into the eyes of these little beasts and think how glorious
they are and how they could simply not be the result of random mutation! This will damage Charlie
Darwin's whopper of a tail in his book the Origin of Species.

6) Because these pets require a lot of attention and can't be left for long periods of time, this will help
reduce the time that relatives can visit and share any heartwarming Christian faith B.S.!

7) When these fuzz balls do die, let humans weep more for them then they do for loosing the
opportunities to spread the Gospel of that bloody Son.

8) If possible have little children race after their pets into the street and get hit by vehicles before they
become Christians.

9) Discourage pet owners from naming their pets anything that will give a hint about God. Greatly
discourage the name of Aslan as it is Turkish for lion and that pest C.S. Lewis wrote the Chronicles of
Narnia which is a parable of that bloody Son and we don't want connections like that to be made. We
don't want discussions. We don't want missionary dogs!

Aslan - Ron Seman's pet :(
Pornography
ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Japan and China and Taiwanese demons.

1) Implant ideas in their minds to scratch and draw naked images on cave walls and rocks.

2) Encourage them to create naked idols of wood and stone.

3) Give them inspiration to use writing tools on papyrus animal skin and copper or gold.

4) Inspire artists to use paintings to spread naked images under the guise that the human body is art
itself.

5) Have them use whatever printing presses they use to print the books of that bloody Son to widely
distribute to masses of people.

6) As still photography is developed inspire them to use cameras to create black and white naked images
which will be the most graphic and explicit today.

7) Have them use silent motion pictures to stimulate the brain and tantalize them.

8) Show them how the addition of sound to motion pictures can lure them by a second sense.

9) Instruct them to use radio stations to broadcast stories to stir the imagination.

10) Illustrate to them how the use of color photography to create vivid images.

11) Stress to the fashion industry to slowly make the point that less clothing coverage is MORE desirable.

12) Impress upon the them how the use of color movies will be entertaining and cause addiction.

13) Show them that with the advent of magazines they can create numerous publishers and slowly make
photos more and more revealing over the years.

14) Let them delight in hand-held film cameras like the 8MM format. They can now afford their own and
can project the movies in the privacy of their home!

15) Inspire them to take magnetic tape from the IBM computer mainframe world and implement a video
tape player in Sony Beta and VHS formats.

16) With the advent of magnetic tape, create a whole pornography video distribution system by having
retail stores rent VHS and Beta tapes.

17) Make it affordable at all costs for people to own their own Beta and VHS cameras.

18) Encourage everyone that they need a personal computer to access the internet and then pump the
internet with pornography.

19) Using the internet which was created for USA national defense to be the primary means for
distribution of pornographic photos and videos.

20) Have them scrap their chemical film based cameras and magnetic tape video cameras for a new
digital age cameras since virtually all own computers in their home.

21) Introduce lewd images into children's video games.
22) With the advent of hi-resolution color laser and ink-jet printers let them download and print
pornographic images which they can post in lockers at work or school.

23) As radio broadcasts are to a city inspire them to have WiFi in their home so that they can take their
small laptops or palm tops into private areas in their home to view pornography.

24) With the increased miniaturization of electronics show them how to develop incredible SMART
phones so that they can make and store pornographic photos and videos on their smartphone and
distribute them easily to the internet.

25) PUSH high-definition on the television and video recording industries for be there realism.

26) Eliminate the poor quality sound systems for televisions and use digital sound technologies and
surround sound systems and personal home theater systems for maximum shock and awe.

27) Why limit the viewers to two dimensions? Get them to utilize three dimensional viewing which was
first brought to professional movie theaters. Introduce it first at the happiest place on earth- EPCOT in
1982 at Disney World in Orlando, Florida-- a real HOT spot!

28) Do NOT stop at 3D wearing glasses but develop handheld 3D viewable devices that won't require
glasses and be initially sold as Nintendo 3DS video game systems.

29) If and when Osama bin Laden is apprehended, do NOT let it be known that he had a treasure trove of
pornography at his compound as it will cast a dark shadow on pornography.

30) With the popular series of Star Wars introduce the general population to holographic three
dimensional displays as projected by robots.

31) Now that you have attacked the senses of the eyes and the ears do NOT stop there! Implement the
accessories for personal computers for odor generation and computer controlled attachments.

32) With all the development in robotics technology by Honda and others, introduce SEXBOTS.
Prayer




HIGH ALERT: Notifications for ALL demons.
1) As we know communicating to the humans' Heavenly Father in that bloody Son's name is the most
powerful weapon in their arsenal so it MUST BE INTERRUPTED and STOPPED IMMEDIATELY IF NOT
SOONER!

2) Keep humans B.U.S.Y. which means of course Being Under Satan's Yoke.

3) When they awake make sure they immediately think about chores or work they must do.

4) If possible let them think of concerns and worry to distract them. Worry is a wonderful sin isn't it?

5) If they commute by car to work or school let a driver under our control cut them off to distract them.

6) If they drive let the radio be left on by the previous driver or make them think to turn it on to prevent
prayer.

7) Aren't some of those Christian Radio stations inspiring? NOT! You have succeeded so well my
demons, I must admit, in making Christian radio stations focus on news, traffic, weather and chit chat so
much and so less on the Word of God. These stations, like 90.1 FM, Moody Radio in Chicago, IL USA is
an example. The preponderance of their broadcasts is the word of man and NOT the Word of God! Score
1 for the dark side, or is it the HOT SIDE?

8) Because fuel prices are ever increasing, well done on manipulating oil oligopolies, have more and
more people car pooling. This will prevent them from prayer time.

9) If the human chooses public transportation such as a bus or train, let them be distracted by the aromas
alluring them.

10) Furthermore on public transportation let the humans be distracted by the opposite sex.

11) In addition make sure that there is always a discarded newspaper laying about that they would
choose to read instead of having quiet time.

12) Oh and with the advent of higher technologies let them use cellular phones to distract one another.

13) Why not let them use cellular email and internet surfing to waste time.
14) And of course how can we forget the hot laptop and Wi-Fi so they can do work before and after work!
This will help them climb and fall on the corporate ladder.

15) When in public places for lunch and dinner let them be embarrassed to praise and thank their God.
This will impact others in that they will feel peer pressure to NOT pray.

16) Totally keep their children busy with events and sports after school so they can seldom have dinner
together as a family and have prayers.

17) The television is such a good tool to just let them droole from their couch and get so sleepy that they
just want to dive into bed and NOT read their Bible, a form of prayer, or offer thanks or requests.

18) And stop those Sunday school teachers from coming up with acronyms for "pray". You know like that
one ACTS = Adoration, Confession, Thanks, Supplication. Well the supplication one is good because
those kids don't understand that one!

19) Let a catch phrase come to vogue, "All we can do now is pray." They are so STUPID those idiotic
humans for if they prayed FIRST, they wouldn't get themselves into the messes that we so love them to
be into.

20) I have much more to communicate to you on this subject but I have to attend to some pressing
matters as a fallen one is starting to look up to that bloody Son!



Pre-marital




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA, China, and European demons but applies world wide.

1) Implant ideas in their minds that before one gets married they need to test drive various models, as if
they were purchasing an automobile.

2) Encourage them that since they are getting married it is OK.

3) Keep repeating in their mind, "A little piece of paper isn't going to stop me."
Princeton University




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and England demons.

1) In 1746 allow and assist the New Light Presbyterians in the establishing of the College of New Jersey
in order to train ministers dedicated to their views.

2) Move it to Newark, NJ in 1747, and then to Princeton, NJ in 1756. Princeton is thought to be named
after a prince but certainly not that bloody Son.

3) In 1896, 150 years later rename it to Princeton University.

4) Princeton’s crest states “Dei sub numine viget,” which is Latin for “Under God she flourishes.” Of
course we will eliminate the concept of God in the millennium of 2000.




5) Princeton once had close ties to the Presbyterian Church, but make Princeton place NO SPIRITUAL
DEMANDS on it's students!
Religions




1) You know that there was a theocratic government with that Father in Heaven and the chosen people,
the Israelites, the Jews. There were all those prophecies about a Messiah, a Christ to come to fulfill a
second and final covenant between that Father in Heaven and not only the Jews but the gentiles as well.
In Antioch these bloody disciples will be call pathetic Christians. We must do our best to create division as
we do in governments. Create as many man made religions to distract humans from learning about
Christianity. Create thousands of belief systems. Create a buffet of them so that there is something to
please everyone. Create chaos and disorder at all costs.

2) Amongst the followers of that bloody Son create so many different variations in the Christian faith.
Create thousands of them. This will make the humans question the variations and delay them from really
learning about that Jesus.

3) Create many a cult in Christianity. Make sure people don't find their way to that Son!
Ten commandments




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Japan and China and German and Russia demons.

1) Allow humans to think that they are merely Ten SUGGESTIONS from God The Father and not Ten
Commandments.

2) Keep them so busy and their minds cluttered that they can't even list the Ten Commandments.

3) Don't allow images to be retained in their minds which can be visual clues to remembering the Ten
Commandments and allowing them to pop into their brains when they are about to be tempted.

4) Don't let them know that the bloody Son has actually made the commandments more stringent. As an
example He said that if one hates someone then they are actually guilty of murder in their mind. My owe
my. A planet full of murderers.



Weapons
ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and Israel and Japan and China and German and Russian
demons.

1) Create a progression of weapons that will cause more and more destruction! Let the humans kill
themselves before they learn about that bloody Son!

2) Let them use their hands and then stones and sticks.

3) Let them learn about metals and create knives and swords!

4) Let them create bows and arrows.

5) Empower them will the crossbow and catapult.

6) Create rifles and shotguns and hand-held weapons called pistols.

7) Create machine guns which will rapidly fire bullets. Tell them it will save lives by preventing traditional
lines of people shooting at each other.

8) Create assets of war like aeroplanes to fly through the air and drop bombs and shoot weapons.

9) Make the caliber of weapons and the gunpowder more and more powerful.

10) Let ships of sea have cannons to shoot at each other and land based forts or city strongholds.

11) Let ground based tanks give armor and let them crush whatever lie in their way.

12) Let them create TNT 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene, a chemical compound with the formula C6H2(NO2)3CH3.
This will bring explosive power!

13) Let them split the atom and create atomic bombs. It will kill 10,000+ people at one time and leave
radiation to slowly kill the rest.
Yale University




ALERT: Notifications especially for USA and England demons.

1) In 1701 assist in forming the Collegiate School.

2) Let this institution trace its roots to 17th-century clergymen who sought to establish a college to train
clergy and political leaders for the new colony. This will attract Christians!

3) In 1718, let the Collegiate School be renamed to Yale College to honor a gift from Elihu Yale, a
governor of the British East India Company. Get the focus of Christian ministry! Elihu will later become
corrupt and the British East India Company will help bring in imports from India and China which sets the
stage for economic decline in the United States of America (U.S.A.).

4) In 1861 let Yale College be the first to offer Ph.D. programs. Now we all know that we want human
knowledge to be revered much more than that flimsy Bible, even though we know the Bible is indeed the
word of that bloody Son.

5) As you destroy values at colleges and universities throughout the world, have a laugh with these
degree acronyms:
B.S. = Bull excrement
M.S. = More B.S.
Ph.D. = Piled Higher and Deeper!

                  My Commitment as a Christian
I'm part of the fellowship of the unashamed. I have Holy Spirit POWER. The die has
been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I'm a disciple of
His. I won't look back, let up, s l o w d o w n, b a c k a w a y, or be STILL.

My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I'm
FINISHED with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless
dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or
popularity. I don't have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or
rewarded. I now live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer,
and labor by POWER.

My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way
rOuGh, my companions few, my guide RELIABLE, my mission clear. I cannot be
$bought$, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed. I
will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary,
negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in
the maze of mediocrity.

I won't give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed UP, paid up,
preached up for the cause of Christ. I am a disciple of Jesus. I must go till He comes,
give till I drop, preach till all know, and work till He stops me. And when He comes
for His own, He will have no problems recognizing me - my banner will be clear!

Atheism
Atheism is defined
a·the·ism/ˈāTHēˌizəm/
Noun: The theory or belief that God does not exist.

It is important to understand the logic of atheists and theists so that you can explain
your faith. Here is a link to a site which has a video and more links:

This former atheist now became a Christian! Read about it here:

Talk Among Yourselves
October 4, 2009 | 573 Comments
The video below has been making the rounds of the atheist blogosphere lately. However, I don’t
think that strictly speaking it is an atheist video. The focus is largely epistemology, and virtually any
word could be substituted for “God” in the narrative. Theologians and believers can agree with a
good deal of it, and with minor adjustments, turn many of its arguments against atheism, or at least
certain forms of it. Much of the ground I covered in this post a few years back, albeit without the
emphasis on civility.
Regrettably, time constraints preclude me from expounding upon the foundations of my own faith
here although I do hope to get to it eventually. In meantime, talk among yourselves. Below the video
I provide transcriptions of the video, one with a description of the graphics accompanying the spoken
narrative, and one without.
TRANSCRIPTION OF “PUTTING FAITH IN ITS PLACE” VIDEO

[Man Facing Room; Screen with Cube Appears]

Imagine you enter a strange room where a computer tells you that hidden somewhere in the
building is a cube. Then it asks you, “What does the cube contain?”
Most of us would recognize this to be a futile question. The cube could be large or small. It
could be a solid block or a vacuum chamber of nothing but sparse particles of gas. [Cube
changes to reflect these possibilities]. Or it might contain any one of billions of permutations of
familiar or novel objects. [Objects such as milk, container of blood, key, matches, skeleton with
pumpkin head, alien creature, weird signs appear in cube]. You could never give a precise,
justifiable answer.

But if you were asked, “What does the cube NOT contain?”, you could give many answers.
For example, the cube could not possibly contain the Amazon River, the planet Mars, or
absurd objects such as “a bed made of sleep”. In fact, there would be more perfectly valid
answers to this second question than you could list in a million lifetimes. [Words “Does Not
Contain” appears on cube, with arrow pointing to words setting forth those non-possibilities outside
cube, followed by the following scrolling list:

Cats made of airport
Iron Gold
The 17th Century
Frozen justice
A human sun
1-dimensional cubes
1-dimensional swans
1-dimensional hips
The DNAof 1.10pm
A fossilized flame
The heliopause
The colour of up
The back of love
The uncontainable
My unbirthday
Music made of doubt
An inert explosion
[Words “Countless possibilities” and “Countless impossibilities” appear on either side of cube; Words
“we can't know was IS in the cube appear below with arrow pointing to “Countless possibilities;
words “We know these are NOT in the cube appear below word “Countless impossibilities with arrow
pointing to scrolling list of alleged imposssibilities].

This illustrates an interesting asymmetry concerning the contents of this cube. Despite there
being countless possibilities and impossibilities, without evidence from the cube itself we
can only ever make valid, justifiable statements about what is NOT inside the cube, not what
IS.

It‟s true that someone claiming, for example, that the cube contained nothing but a wooden
spoon might be right, but since, without evidence, they could provide no valid justification for
such a claim, there would be literally no reason for anyone to accept it. [Woman appears with
cartoon speech bubble indicating she's saying “It contains nothing but a wooden spoon”; rest of
words of narrative appear beside her].
What if we were talking about a realm of existence independent of our universe that like the
concealed cube is physically inaccessible to us? [Words “Inaccessible realm of existence”
appear above oval labeled “our universe”].Would things be different? Would we be able to
deduce precisely what occupied such a realm, such as a divine being? [Words “Divine Being”
appear outside universe oval, and are crossed out by diagonal red line]. No, there‟s the same
asymmetry as before. Countless kinds of beings might exist independently of our universe.
Countless logically impossible beings cannot. [Words “countless possible beings” and “countless
impossible being appear on either side of words “inaccessible realm of being” with arrows pointing to
them]. But while we can list many kinds of beings that can‟t exist there because they violate
logic, [arrow point from words “countless impossible beings” to words “we can list beings which
CAN'T exist,” which in turn have arrow pointing to the following list:

An omniscient being capable of choice
A perfect being that needs to be worshipped
A non-spatial omnipresent being
An all-loving omnipotent being that allows eternal agony]
we can‟t list those, if any, that do. [Arrow points from words “countless possible beings” down to
words “we can't list beings that DO exist”, with arrow in turn pointing down to word “UNKNOWABLE.”]
Any attempt to argue that a specific divine being exists in an inaccessible realm of reality is
an attempt to argue for either the impossible or the unknowable.[Angry-looking man appears in
middle of screen with cartoon speech bubble saying “Divine Being X exists in an inaccessible realm
of being!”].
Logic alone can refute impossible beings, [arrow points down from those words to list of
allegedly impossible beings] but it can‟t show that possible beings actually exist, without
evidence. [Those words appear on other side of screen]. If you can‟t at some point provide
measurable, verifiable evidence for the specific being you claim exists, all the argument in
the world won‟t establish your claim as fact. [Cartoon speech bubbles with words “Argument A”,
“Argument B”, “Argument C”, “Argument D” appear above angry man, only to be popped by hand
with pin]. This is one reason why as soon as anyone claims they have a logical requirement
that requires the existence of one personal creator of our universe we know it will be
fallacious [Cartoon speech bubble above angry man says “I have a logical argument that requires
the existence of one personal creator of our universe”, with words soon covered with words “will be
fallacious”].because they‟ve failed at a basic level to understand what‟s required to establish
such an existence claim. It‟s just a question of identifying where the errors are.

For example, the theologian William Lane Craig has asserted that our universe had an
original cause which, because it created our time and space, had to transcend time and
space. Transcending our time and space doesn‟t necessarily mean something transcends all
time and space. [Craig is pictured with various words from the narrative popping up beside him].
However, his conclusion that this non-temporal, non-spatial cause would have to be a
changeless disembodied mind is more seriously flawed. A changeless mind is by definition
non-functioning. Minds and purposeful creation depend on change. Craig‟s changeless
creator is self-contradicting and belongs to the category of the logically impossible.
However seemingly plausible they may sound to the unwary or the already persuaded, all
popular arguments for the existence of specific gods are based on false premises and/or
conclusions and unjustified presuppositions, and a hundred invalid arguments don‟t
accumulate into one valid one. [List of the following arguments appear on screen:

Cosmological argument
Arguments from complexity
Argument from contingency
Moral argument
Ontological argument
Argument from degree
Mind-body problem argument
Argument from beauty
Anthropic argument
Transcendental argument
Argument from reason
Words “Doomed Arguments” superimposed over list].

Many people with theistic beliefs don‟t get tangled up in pursuing doomed arguments like
these. They know they can‟t prove gods with logic and have no need to do so. They realize
their beliefs are personal and that others are entitled to different views.
However, when you‟re not so willing to respect differences, when you disparage, attack, or
work to create disadvantage for others because they don‟t share your beliefs, it shouldn‟t
surprise you when those you try to oppress object to this unreasonable attitude and expose
the flawed arguments that shore it up. [Cartoon speech bubbles from speakers off screen say
“You're worthless,” “Your lives are unlivable,” “This is a nation of Religion X,” “You're amoral,” “I don't
know that atheists should be considered citizens,” You're human garbage” and are then flicked off
screen by two hands]. A belief in one or more gods might sustain you in your own life, [women
pictured praying at table with her speech bubble saying “What's the harm in saying grace”] but when
you pressure others to adopt your beliefs and participate in practices associated with those
beliefs, you give up the luxury of not having to explain yourself. [second aggravated-looking
woman revealed to be at table; her speech bubble says “Please, either prove your God exists or
stop nagging”]. You give yourself the burden of proof, and certain reasons that might seem
sound when justifying a belief to yourself are simply not valid when you‟re trying to justify
existence claims to other people, however passionately you express them. [speech bubbles
appear above praying woman which say “But OBVIOUSLY He Exists,” “He cured my illness,” “I feel
His spirit inside me,” I have FAITH!”; red rectangles with word “invalid” superimposed over each
bubble].. You can‟t pester and bully people and then retreat behind faith when challenged on
your behavior. And if you can‟t demonstrate that gods exist, resorting to emotional blackmail
to try to get people to believe is a dishonest tactic. [Praying woman cries, with speech bubble
saying “Why are you trying to upset me?; companion responds, “You're upsetting yourself.”]

When those who don‟t believe in gods show theistic claims to be invalid, [companion from
table now standing next to a man, and pops his speech bubble which says “Complexity proves God”]
it‟s often claimed that they‟re trying to prove gods don‟t exist. [Man's speech bubble says “Why
do you need to prove God doesn't exist?” to which woman responds “I'm just exposing your flawed
reasoning.”] In fact, all they‟re doing is exposing flawed reasoning and encouraging
intellectual honesty. It‟s understandable that when some have their claims debunked it‟s an
uncomfortable feeling, and employing red herrings becomes an attractive way to wriggle out
of admitting their mistakes. [Man's speech bubble morphs into fish shape]. But debunking claims
about the existence of gods is just showing those who make such claims that they can‟t
assert what they‟re trying to assert. [Woman's bubble says “you can't assert what you're trying to
assert”].
[Heading on page: “Defining the Divine (where the problems begin”]

The question of defining divine entities is where the problems begin. As soon as you define
any god you must justify why you‟ve defined it that way, giving a valid reason for each quality
you‟re attributing to it. [Speech bubble says “God X has attributes A, B, C & D”; each letter is then
circled with arrow pointing to words “Need justification”].Many who realize they can‟t justify any
particular definitions avoid them altogether, [words “God 'Y' is an energy which defies definition”
appear in speech bubble], but without definition there is no adequately formed concept to have
a belief about, [those words then appear beneath bubble] and this is the stumbling block when
people are asked to define the gods they claim exist. As their divine definitions become more
specific they have more to justify, the flaws in their logic become more numerous and there
arguments become easier to refute. [Illustrated with a meter's needle pointing toward word
“Specific”]. Conversely, as their definitions become more vague the entities they are
proposing cease to have any practical relevance. [Meter needles points to “Vague”]. Ironically,
the way many people define gods means that as well as having no logical support, they can‟t
be supported with evidence either. [Words from narrative appear on screen].

For example, as soon as you say „God X‟ is non-physical, you‟ve proposed a being that can‟t
be quantified, tested, or perceived even in principle. You literally have nothing to work with.
When trying to justify non-physical entities people will often point out that we can‟t see the
wind but we still know it‟s there. [Various words from narrative appear on screen]. However, this
analogy is flawed – we know the wind is there because it IS physical. Not only can we
measure it and perceive it directly through our sense of touch, it can knock us off our feet
and destroy buildings. [Pictures of weather vane, woman with hair blown back, and tornado
appear on screen]. The physical force it exerts could hardly be more dramatic. Indeed, we use
that force to generate electricity. [Windmill appears on screen]. By contrast, it‟s not even clear
what a being with no conceivable physical characteristics is supposed to mean.[Words from
narrative appear] Even if you were proposing a being that had a different type of physical
existence, making it undetectable to humans, you‟d have enough trouble explaining how you
could know it was there.
Many claim that the existence of particular gods CAN be demonstrated, that their powers can
be manifested physically and that these physical manifestations count as evidence. [Words
from narrative appear on screen in speech bubbles]. But even if we were to witness an event that
genuinely challenged our understanding, that wouldn‟t justify inferring any specific divine
agency. [Picture of moon saying “Jeremy Brett was the definitive Sherlock Holmes”]. At most it
could indicate power, intelligence, and/or technology that was unknown both in its number
and its nature. [Words from narrative appear]
Imagine a group of people unfamiliar with electronic technology being duped into watching a
carefully staged CGI animation of a man turning into a lion. [Man/lion transformation depicted]. If
they thought they had just seen evidence of divine magic, we would know that conclusion
was false and due to an illusion of technology beyond their experience. Likewise, if you were
to see something genuinely jaw-dropping, like stars spelling out words in the sky, [stars form
words “Stop fighting!”; man on earth points up and says “Look! A message from God X!] you‟d have
no basis for drawing any reliable conclusions about the specific causes of what you were
witnessing. You could be having your brain expertly controlled by aliens. [Second man
appears saying, “No! It's a message from God Y!]. You could be having a psychotic break from
reality. [Men fight, with first man clutching second's throat and saying “It's MY God!”]. We already
know that brains can conjure up richly detailed worlds when we dream, and that their
dysfunction can cause us to hallucinate. If some kind of intelligence was responsible,
anything with the ability to manipulate physical matter or our perceptions to that extent could
easily disguise itself so we could never be sure of its identity. With such fallible brains and
such limited technology, a spectacle like this would be beyond the scale of what we could
comprehend or investigate. [Words from narrative appear].
Could life forms of vastly greater intelligence and power exist beyond the current reach of
our perception and technology? Certainly. But even if we were ever to find evidence of
greater intelligence that still would not constitute evidence of specific gods. Even if some
kind of intelligence initiated the existence of our universe, there‟s nothing to say what the
nature of that intelligence was; whether it was a single or a collective intelligence; whether or
not part of that intelligence remains interested in the universe, let alone the affairs of humans;
whether or not that intelligence is aware of our tiny planet, let alone capable of
communicating with its inhabitants; or even whether or not that intelligence still exists.
When you impartially review a factual claim, that, for example, one divine universe creator
currently monitors and judges every human life, the lines, the layers of unjustified
assumptions needed to make such a claim become starkly apparent. One would be no less
justified in proposing a race of aliens, that created our universe with an advanced machine
and annihilated themselves in the process. [Alien finger depicted pushing red button]. As soon
as you propose any specific being, the nature of whose existence can‟t be reliably examined
and quantified, even in principle, you‟re talking about a non-scientific concept that‟s
unsupportable by either logic or evidence. [Block containing words “God X” falls when supporting
blocked titled “Logic” and “Evidence” disappear].Without logic or evidence at your disposal you
have no grounds for demanding that anyone agree with you. [Angry woman says “Agree with
me” and “You're not part of this family!”] You certainly have no grounds for bullying and
ostracizing them when they don‟t. [Red lines cross out woman's words]. But if that‟s the way you
deal with independent thought, your fallacious arguments will continue to be exposed until
you grow out of your need for everyone to subscribe to your faith-based ideas. [Arguments “A”
though “G” appear over woman's head and are popped by pin-wielding hand].

When you start being honest with yourself about what you know and what you don‟t know,
you‟re likely to realize that you‟re in no position to be shouting the odds. And when you
understand that it‟s behavior that has the practical impact on our lives, you may realize that
it‟s not whether we believe in gods, but how we treat each other, that says the most about our
character. If you attack, condemn, or use emotional blackmail on people because they don‟t
share your belief in one or more gods [Angry couple pictured shouting at startled woman: “Non-
believers are human rubbish!” and “Join our religion of love and peace or go to hell!], you‟re invited
to consider what that says about you[magnifying glass appears over shouting couple] and how it
squares with the values you claim to embrace.

______________________________________________
TRANSCRIPTION WITHOUT PARENTHETICALS

Imagine you enter a strange room where a computer tells you that hidden somewhere in the
building is a cube. Then it asks you, “What does the cube contain?”
Most of us would recognize this to be a futile question. The cube could be large or small. It
could be a solid block or a vacuum chamber of nothing but sparse particles of gas. Or it
might contain any one of billions of permutations of familiar or novel objects. You could
never give a precise, justifiable answer.

But if you were asked, “What does the cube NOT contain?”, you could give many answers.
For example, the cube could not possibly contain the Amazon River, the planet Mars, or
absurd objects such as “a bed made of sleep”. In fact, there would be more perfectly valid
answers to this second question than you could list in a million lifetimes.

This illustrates an interesting asymmetry concerning the contents of this cube. Despite there
being countless possibilities and impossibilities, without evidence from the cube itself we
can only ever make valid, justifiable statements about what is NOT inside the cube, not what
IS.

It‟s true that someone claiming, for example, that the cube contained nothing but a wooden
spoon might be right, but since, without evidence, they could provide no valid justification for
such a claim, there would be literally no reason for anyone to accept it.
What if we were talking about a realm of existence independent of our universe that like the
concealed cube is physically inaccessible to us? Would things be different? Would we be
able to deduce precisely what occupied such a realm, such as a divine being? No, there‟s the
same asymmetry as before. Countless kinds of beings might exist independently of our
universe. Countless logically impossible beings cannot. But while we can list many kinds of
beings that can‟t exist there because they violate logic, we can‟t list those, if any, that do. Any
attempt to argue that a specific divine being exists in an inaccessible realm of reality is an
attempt to argue for either the impossible or the unknowable.
Logic alone can refute impossible beings, [arrow points down from those words to list of
allegedly impossible beings] but it can‟t show that possible beings actually exist, without
evidence. If you can‟t at some point provide measurable, verifiable evidence for the specific
being you claim exists, all the argument in the world won‟t establish your claim as fact. This
is one reason why as soon as anyone claims they have a logical requirement that requires
the existence of one personal creator of our universe we know it will be fallacious because
they‟ve failed at a basic level to understand what‟s required to establish such an existence
claim. It‟s just a question of identifying where the errors are.

For example, the theologian William Lane Craig has asserted that our universe had an
original cause which, because it created our time and space, had to transcend time and
space. Transcending our time and space doesn‟t necessarily mean something transcends all
time and space.
However, his conclusion that this non-temporal, non-spatial cause would have to be a
changeless disembodied mind is more seriously flawed. A changeless mind is by definition
non-functioning. Minds and purposeful creation depend on change. Craig‟s changeless
creator is self-contradicting and belongs to the category of the logically impossible.
However seemingly plausible they may sound to the unwary or the already persuaded, all
popular arguments for the existence of specific gods are based on false premises and/or
conclusions and unjustified presuppositions, and a hundred invalid arguments don‟t
accumulate into one valid one.

Many people with theistic beliefs don‟t get tangled up in pursuing doomed arguments like
these. They know they can‟t prove gods with logic and have no need to do so. They realize
their beliefs are personal and that others are entitled to different views.
However, when you‟re not so willing to respect differences, when you disparage, attack, or
work to create disadvantage for others because they don‟t share your beliefs, it shouldn‟t
surprise you when those you try to oppress object to this unreasonable attitude and expose
the flawed arguments that shore it up. A belief in one or more gods might sustain you in your
own life, but when you pressure others to adopt your beliefs and participate in practices
associated with those beliefs, you give up the luxury of not having to explain yourself. You
give yourself the burden of proof, and certain reasons that might seem sound when justifying
a belief to yourself are simply not valid when you‟re trying to justify existence claims to other
people, however passionately you express them. You can‟t pester and bully people and then
retreat behind faith when challenged on your behavior. And if you can‟t demonstrate that
gods exist, resorting to emotional blackmail to try to get people to believe is a dishonest
tactic.

When those who don‟t believe in gods show theistic claims to be invalid, it‟s often claimed
that they‟re trying to prove gods don‟t exist. In fact, all they‟re doing is exposing flawed

A conversation with former atheist blogger “Raving Theist” (how
one atheist came to faith in Christ)

Posted on March 2, 2010 by elizabeth


In December of 2008, the popular atheist blogger formerly known as "Raving Atheist" announced his
stunning conversion to Christianity. He changed his blogging name to "Raving Theist" and dedicated
his site "to Jesus Christ, now and forever."


His horrified readers reacted with unprecedented (but hardly surprising) vitriol. A friend sent me a
link to his conversion post and I, too, was amazed. Except, unlike his atheist readers, I rejoiced with
him.


Raving Theist and I began an email correspondence and discovered interesting parallels to our
journeys of faith despite having nearly polar opposite starting points. Last month I asked him if he
would allow me to interview him and share his conversion story here on my blog. Graciously, he
agreed.


A vague childhood belief
RT grew up in a largely secular area of Long Island. His mother was the daughter of a Protestant
minister and his father was an agnostic whose family was once active in Communist circles. Although
RT attended his mother's church every week until 6th grade, it was more for cultural and social
reasons than spiritual ones.


"I didn't have a relationship with God," RT explained. "That wasn't even something we talked about.
But I do remember once when I was about 7 or 8 years old, my mother fainted and my first reaction
was to run upstairs and pray about it, to ask God for help."


Finding atheism


During his last year of high-school, RT began taking a greater interest in religion. He'd become close
friends with a Reformed Jewish kid who had a "brilliant scientific mind" and who openly "mocked
religion."


That year he read Bertrand Russell's essay, "Why I am not a Christian." He was captivated by the
irreverent humor and whimsical tone. It made perfect sense to RT and by the time he entered college,
he considered himself an atheist as well.


Religion & "The Moonies"


In the summer after his freshman year of college, RT hopped a bus to California. He was excited by
the prospect of adventures out West, but his enthusiasm quickly waned after a couple of weeks on
skid row and a failed stint as a door-to-door encyclopedia salesman.


After settling into a clerical job and finding less seedy lodgings, he spent much of his time holed up in
the Los Angeles Library. In addition to having a devout Scientologist landlady, he'd begun noticing
the "Moonies" all over L.A. He started reading about cults and deprogramming.


One afternoon he just 'happened' to loiter near the corner where the Moonies were proselytizing.
They invited him to their group and he hung out with them for a weekend retreat in the San
Bernadino mountains.


When they eventually tried to convince him to send for all his worldly belongings, his suspicions
were confirmed. He packed his bags and headed back to college, determined to write about his
experiences and how all religions were cults.
The piece he wrote helped formulate most of his thoughts about religion. Eventually it was published
in the college newspaper although the editors cut a section which attempted to draw unflattering
parallels between the Moonies and the Catholic Church.


Leaving religion behind


After college, RT had little time to think of religion or atheism. He was too busy going to law school,
becoming a lawyer and, as he says, "having a life." His career as a lawyer flourished and eventually he
began teaching Law school as well.


In the late 90's, RT attended a continuing education course on philosophy. The professor, a
philosopher who edited and wrote the introduction to the Bertrand Russell's collection of essays, was
sarcastic and hated religion. He also "hated religious people," RT remembers.


RT developed a relationship with the professor and soon was engaging in debate with other lawyers
about atheism. His focus on atheism as a lifestyle led a friend to suggest that RT begin a blog.


Blogging as "Raving Atheist"


In late 2001, RT began co-writing a political blog with a college acquaintance, his posts focusing
frequently on religion. Soon he started his own blog which he used to attack religious people as
"demented, deluded God-idiots." He wrote scathing essays about how the culture of belief was
destroying America.


He would find faith-based blogs and despite the fact that these people lived simple, good lives, he
would ridicule their motives as suspect, and find them guilty of insanity.


True atheism, he believed, was not about "live and let live." In some ways, RT describes himself as
becoming an evangelist for atheism.


Statement of atheistic principles


In an effort to provide a set of atheistic principles, the 'Basic Assumptions' of RT's blog declared that
all definitions of God are either self-contradictory, incoherent and meaningless or can be refuted by
empirical, scientific evidence.
But despite his bold posturing, he felt ill-versed in scientific matters and recognized that his logical
disproofs could only go so far. In fact, in an early essay he admitted that yes, it was technically
possible for a rational person to have a belief in God. To his mind, however, it was still only possible
in the sense that one might be sharing the room with a purple hippopotamus that evaded detection
by darting away the moment one tried to turn around and see it.


In other words, there was no evidence for it. So while it was a possibility, it wasn't worth much
consideration.


Using religion to support abortion


In late 2002, RT attended a blogger party. He happened to sit next to a Catholic blogger named
Benjamin Kepple. At one point, the conversation turned to abortion and RT asked Kepple's opinion
of the practice. The calm, confident reply: "It's murder."


RT was stunned. Here was a man, a kind, affable and cogently reasonable human being who
nonetheless believed that abortion was murder. To the limited extent he had previously considered
the issue, RT believed abortion to be completely acceptable; the mere disposal of a lump of cells.
Perhaps akin to clipping fingernails.


This unsettling exchange spurred RT to further investigate the issue on his blog. He first noticed that
the pro-choice Christians who promoted abortion did not employ scientific or rational arguments,
but relied on a confused set of "spiritual" platitudes. More significantly, he discovered that the
overwhelmingly pro-choice atheist blogosphere also fell short in its analysis of abortion.


The supposedly "reality-based" community either dismissed abortion as a "religious issue," or
paradoxically claimed that pro-life principles were contrary to religious doctrine. Having formerly
equated atheism with reason, RT was slowly growing uncertain of the value of godlessness in the
search for truth.


Gentle & Reasonable


RT nevertheless continued his atheistic ravings full-force. In early 2003, he engaged in a particularly
venomous exchange with an online Catholic scholar over Thomas Aquinas' "first cause" argument. In
a later, conciliatory gesture, he linked to a post-abortion healing blog favored by his religious
adversary–an act which brought him into contact with a group of pro-life advocates whose selfless
dedication to their cause moved him deeply.


He was inspired by their gentle and reasonable writings, particularly the story of one woman: Ashli
McCall. She wrote with painful honesty about how her late-term abortion terribly affected her. Ashli
channeled her suffering into efforts to help women in similar situations and save them from the fall-
out of abortion. Eventually, she asked for his assistance in some of her pro-life work.


So, when Ashli gave birth to a healthy baby girl on Mother's Day 2004, RT decided to use the
occasion to announce that The Raving Atheist would become, in part, a pro-life blog.


Christians who showed him Christ


This decision stirred an angry mutiny among his readers. But RT had become convinced that the
secular world had it wrong on a very foundational issue: life.


With Ashli's encouragement he began volunteering at a Crisis Pregnancy Center. Suddenly, he was
surrounded by life. Here were people who were kind, loving and who lived out their faith in a very
tangible way. The pictures on the walls confirmed this. Smiling babies were everywhere. The tangible
expression of pro-life work was life itself.


It was becoming clear to RT that people who lived out their Christian faith were happier and better
people as a result.


A slow change of heart


Despite this evidence, RT maintained a lingering intellectual attachment to atheism. In late 2004 he
organized a blog interview with the best-selling atheist author, Sam Harris ('The End of Faith').
Assisting in the questioning was filmmaker Brian Flemming. This association led both RT and Harris
to appear the next year in Flemming's anti-Christian documentary, "The God Who Wasn't There."


RT attended the documentary's New York premiere. At the end of a subsequent summertime
showing in the city, however, he found his atheistic enthusiasm waning. The appearance of his
pseudonym in the credits inspired less pride than he expected.
As the lights turned on, he felt alienated from the audience and its contemptuous, anti-religious
laughter. He briefly considered joining a small group that had formed to discuss the film over dinner
and he followed them for several blocks while debating whether to invite himself.


But halfway across a darkened, midtown street, he walked away.


To the love of Christ


That fall, RT began a friendship with a Catholic blogger, Dawn Eden. He frequently guest posted on
her site about pro-life issues. He also continued working on certain "hard cases" with Ashli. Near
Thanksgiving of 2005, Ashli opened her heart (and home) to a stranger coping with a particularly
difficult and tumultuous pregnancy. RT, Dawn Eden and other bloggers came together on this
woman's behalf.


In June 2006, RT saw the woman's sonogram, which he linked to on his blog, ripen into a baby. In
honor of Ashli's efforts, he vowed that the birth of the child would spell the death of atheism on his
blog. Late that month he announced that he would no longer mock God on his site.


Although still a doubter, RT's subsequent posts entertained the possibility of God. Soon he asked to
join Dawn Eden at church and at her suggestion, engaged in daily prayer. He still didn't believe in
God, but he wanted to change. He wanted the deep, abiding joy he'd observed in his pro-life
Christian friends.


In time, RT found it impossible to believe that the universe was created out of nothing. There was
order, direction and love. Those things all pointed to some larger, unfathomable consciousness. He
realized he could not believe that human hearts and minds came into being randomly.


RT's eyes also opened to the core truth of Christianity. Whereas he had formerly concurred with
Nietzsche's appraisal of the faith as a "slave's philosophy," a cruel celebration of senseless suffering,
his experiences brought him to appreciate the nobler meaning of sacrifices made for the sake of life.
’I got excited at Mount St Helens!’

As I stood staring at the gaping hole left after 10 per cent of the mountain had been removed as
the result of an earthquake, a gigantic rockslide and debris avalanche, together with a colossal
steam explosion, I was reminded afresh of how small and vulnerable man is, but how awesome
must be the power of the God who created the earth and its mountains. As Habakkuk says, ‘the
mountains saw thee, and they trembled’ (Habakkuk 3:10).

It was hard to believe that on May 18, 1980, right where I stood, 900°C swirling gases and debris
from the explosion had devastated the landscape as the energy equivalent to 400 million tonnes
of TNT (approximately 33,000 Hiroshima-size atomic bombs) was unleashed on this once
beautiful landscape of lush conifer forest—now looking as barren as the surface of the moon.

What a phenomenal opportunity to visit the site of an event that not only received world
headlines, but has since challenged the very foundation of evolutionary theory. I had joined the
annual Institute for Creation Research ‘Mount St Helens tour’, led by geologist Dr Steven Austin.

I had heard Steve Austin speak many times at our Back to Genesis seminars about the events at
Mount St Helens. The information he communicates on this subject is ‘mind blowing’. People in
the audience get so excited. I have seen non-Christians challenged by this evidence in ways I
never thought possible. So, I decided to see some of the evidence myself. And what better way
than to join Dr Steve Austin and others who had come from all over America and other parts of
the world to hike around Mount St Helens and observe the geologic and biologic features
produced by this catastrophe.

The first thing I learned was that the eruption of Mount St Helens was a rather small and
localized event. Even though this explosion toppled 150 square miles (about 390 square
kilometres) of forest in six minutes, compared to many other recorded eruptions it was rather
small. I soon realized that if a small explosion like this could cause such catastrophic results,
what could happen if there were larger explosions all over the earth?

I was thinking this way because the Bible states in Genesis 7:11, concerning the beginning of the
great Flood of Noah’s day, that ‘all the fountains of the great deep [were] broken up’. I believe
this is a reference to great volcanic activity across the earth. The devastation must have been
cataclysmic.

Noah’s flood
In fact, all over the earth, there is evidence that in the past there has been much volcanic activity.
On the floor of the Pacific Ocean alone, there are an estimated 20,000 volcanoes. Observing the
destruction at Mount St Helens gave me a glimpse of the sort of events that must have occurred
at the time of the Genesis Flood.

The second thing I learned was that the erosive force of water was far greater than I had
imagined. Just north of the mountain is Spirit Lake. As a result of the explosion, its water surface
is now 247 feet (75 metres) higher than its pre-eruption level, and now covers an area of four
square miles (10 square kilometres)—almost twice the area before the eruption.

As we stood on the edge of Spirit Lake, Dr Austin explained that on May 18, 1980, a Richter
magnitude 5.1 earthquake occurred directly under the mountain. As a result of the ensuing
landslide, one-eighth of a cubic mile of avalanche debris (one-quarter of the avalanche), landed
in the basin of Spirit Lake depositing an average of 300 feet (91 metres) of material on the lake
floor. As a result, a giant water wave (or waves) up to 860 feet (262 metres) high scoured the
north slopes of the lake and dumped one million logs into Spirit Lake forming a floating log mat.

We stood in silence on the edge of a now peaceful lake as we looked at another ‘moonscape’,
and again contemplated the destructive force of water.

But Dr Austin went on to explain something even more astounding. Many of the logs showed a
strong tendency to float upright. Over the first 10 years after the eruption, about half of the
original logs which floated in the lake sank to the floor of the lake. When Dr Austin and other
scientists used sonar and scuba to examine the bottom of the lake, they found that about 10 per
cent of the deposited logs were in upright position—looking like an underwater forest!

The sonar indicated tens of thousands of upright logs. Many of these logs still had roots attached
to them.
Some of the logs were solidly buried with three feet of sediment around their bases. Others had
no sediment around theirs. Thus, the upright trees were at different levels, because they were
deposited at different times.

If Spirit Lake could be drained, it would look like forests of trees which had grown at different
levels and at different times—perhaps over thousands of years. Dr Austin went on to explain that
this has helped scientists reinterpret the ‘fossil forests’ of Yellowstone National Park.

At a place called Specimen Ridge at Yellowstone, there are petrified upright trees, at many
different levels. These have been interpreted as representing many different forests, growing
successively on the same place over long periods of time. This is supposedly one of the best
evidences evolutionists use to ‘prove’ long time periods for the earth’s history. However, it is
now possible to explain this same evidence in terms of a similar event to that at Mount St
Helens—a catastrophic event that enables scientists to reinterpret the evidence at Yellowstone as
having formed within a short time.

Geology in hours
Exciting stuff! But there was more to come. The third thing I learned was that events associated
with the explosion had accomplished in seconds, hours, or just a few days, geologic work that
normally would be interpreted as having taken hundreds or even millions of years.

On the third day of the tour, we set off on a nine-mile hike in the blast zone to Loowit Canyon.
Before we reached the Canyon, Dr Austin had us view another area across the valley that had
been covered with landslide debris. We used binoculars to see an area with several canyons that
were formed as a result of mud flows.

One particular canyon was of great interest, because it had been named the ‘Little Grand
Canyon’. Around 100 feet (30 metres) deep and somewhat wider, it is about a one-fortieth scale
model of the mighty Grand Canyon. It also has many characteristics that Dr Austin said
reminded him of features he had observed at the Grand Canyon. This ‘Little Grand Canyon’ was
formed in one day from a mud-flow that eroded material that had blocked the North Fork of the
Toutle River. As a result, the new river then flowed through the canyon formed by the mud flow.

Now I remember being taught in school, that when you saw a canyon with a river running
through it, you assumed that the river took a long time to erode the canyon. My teachers would
have said the same thing about the Toutle River and the Little Grand Canyon, if we had not seen
the events that produced the canyon rapidly.

This reminded me of how easy it is to come to wrong conclusions if you were not present to see
an event, and if you don’t have access to all information. I wonder how many of the world’s
canyons which we did not see form, actually formed quickly. From a creationist perspective,
they have formed during the Flood or within the thousands of years since.

Dr Austin went on to explain something else about the ‘Little Grand Canyon’ that really excited
him. As a result of the events of the eruption and landslide, up to 600 feet (183 metres) of new
strata were formed in places. The erosion of ‘Little Grand Canyon’ enabled scientists to see some
of the layers that were laid down. What astonished them were features such as the 25-feet-thick
deposit that consisted of thousands of thin layers—layer upon layer of material.

Like Dr Austin, I was taught at school that you assume layers like this were laid down at the rate
of one or two per year. Thus you can estimate how long it took for such a deposit to form—
thousands, hundreds of thousands, or perhaps millions of years.

However, this 25 feet (8 metres) thick series of layers was formed in less than one day—in fact it
probably took only about three hours! It was formed by flowing ‘rivers’ of volcanic ash (not lava)
moving at speeds up to 100 miles per hour (160 kilometres an hour). Most scientists had never
entertained the idea that such flows could deposit multiple layers of materials like those we
observe at Mount St Helens.

Brainwashed In Evolution
People throughout the world are indoctrinated by evolutionists to believe that layers like those
we see at the Grand Canyon took millions of years to be laid down. The idea that the earth is
billions of years old is foundational to evolution. What happened at Mount St Helens is a
powerful challenge to this foundation.

In fact, it makes one realize that a world flood with lots of volcanic action and other forces
operating could explain features like the Grand Canyon’s forming within a short time. This really
does show that one can logically accept that the Flood of Noah’s day could have accomplished
extraordinary geologic work such as the laying down of sediments in massive quantities all
across the globe—just like we see.

I had never realized geology could be so exciting. But there was more to come.

At Loowit Canyon, we peered 100 feet down to see where hard rock had been eroded by mud
flows in short periods of time. I had not perceived before that mud could cut through hard rock in
such a short time. But then, I have heard of a tool which engineers use to cut steel and which
basically uses water under pressure.

What I came to understand was that water, mud, and steam, etc., under the right conditions, can
produce results in a very short time that evolutionists are telling the world have to be interpreted
as having taken millions of years.

Dr Austin told us so many other things that we were all staggered at the overwhelming evidence
we can use to help understand that the Bible can be trusted when it tells us there was a global
flood just thousands of years ago. He has put all this information into a video presentation, which
I strongly urge you to obtain.

Warnings
As we trudged back to our buses, we talked about the destruction we had seen, and the people
who had died in the explosion. Those people had been warned about the impending eruption—
but they did not heed the warning, and so they ended their lives on earth to face their Creator.

In Matthew 24, Jesus used the past event of Noah’s Flood as a warning that God had judged the
earth with water, and is going to judge again—next time with fire. Of course, if the Flood of
Noah’s day did not really happen, as evolutionists insist, then they do not have to heed the
Bible’s warning of another judgment in the future.

But, just as surely as God sent the Flood—and the evidence is all over the earth staring at
everyone who cares to look—so He will also keep His Word about coming judgment by fire.

Peter writes, ‘But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store,
reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men’ (2 Peter 3:7). The
judgment to come is going to be an enormous explosion—much bigger than Mount St Helens.
‘But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass
away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the
works that are therein shall be burned up’ (2 Peter 3:10).

There were those who did not listen to the warning of the approaching explosion of Mount St
Helens. When it occurred, it was swift and destructive. There are those today who will not listen
to the warning of the approaching destruction of this earth by fire. When it occurs, it will be also
be swift. But, for those who have accepted God’s Word and who trust in His Son the Lord Jesus
Christ as their Saviour, there will be a heavenly home in the new heavens and earth which the
Creator God will make for those whose names are ‘written in the Lamb’s book of life’
(Revelation 21:27).

Scripture also states that those whose names are ‘not found written in the book of life’ will be
‘cast into the lake of fire’ (Revelation 20:15), which is described as ‘everlasting punishment’—
‘And these shall go away into everlasting punishment; but the righteous into life eternal’
(Matthew 25:46).

Sadly today, many Christians don’t like to talk about the judgment reserved for those who do not
put their trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. However, the truth is that the fiery event of Mount St
Helens took only about six minutes—the fiery judgment for those who reject the God of creation
is eternal.

What a witnessing tool Mount St Helens is! I encourage you to obtain the new video (with many
additions of onsite footage) of Dr Austin’s presentation of Mount St Helens, and use it to show
people that evolution has no foundation, but that the true history of the world is recorded in the
only infallible, inerrant book in the world—God’s Word, the Holy Bible.
Creationism - YOUNG EARTH
Archaeology contintues to point to a young earth. Below in no certain order are
some simple case foro one to review.
1) Scientists find petrified wood at Mount Saint Helens volcanic eruption area which happedn inthe
1980's. Petrified wood is NOT suppose to happen just a few decades bu as Karl Sagan would have said,
milions and milllions of years ago.... http://www.answersingenesis.org/creation/v15/i3/mtsthelens.asp

2) Ice cores found that indicated ages of tens of thousands of years when in fact the World War II planes
found below the ice were from WORLD WAR II, just about 50 years ago!

3) Giants like napthelons had iPod like headphone earbuds like unearthed in 2011 in the country of
Jordan. See the video here of the actual LARGE ear buds :) --Just kidding on video below!

Does God exist? Here are six straight-forward reasons to believe that God is really there.

By Marilyn Adamson

Just once wouldn't you love for someone to simply show you
the evidence for God's existence? No arm-twisting. No
statements of, "You just have to believe." Well, here is an
attempt to candidly offer some of the reasons which suggest
that God exists.

But first consider this. If a person opposes even the possibility
of there being a God, then any evidence can be rationalized
or explained away. It is like if someone refuses to believe that
people have walked on the moon, then no amount of
information is going to change their thinking. Photographs of astronauts walking on the
moon, interviews with the astronauts, moon rocks...all the evidence would be worthless,
because the person has already concluded that people cannot go to the moon.

When it comes to the possibility of God's existence, the Bible says that there are people
who have seen sufficient evidence, but they have suppressed the truth about God. 1 On
the other hand, for those who want to know God if he is there, he says, "You will seek
me and find me; when you seek me with all your heart, I will be found by you." 2 Before
you look at the facts surrounding God's existence, ask yourself, If God does exist, would
I want to know him? Here then, are some reasons to consider...
1. Does God exist? The complexity of our planet points to a deliberate Designer who not
only created our universe, but sustains it today.

Many examples showing God's design could be given, possibly with no end. But here
are a few:

The Earth...its size is perfect. The Earth's size and corresponding gravity holds a thin
layer of mostly nitrogen and oxygen gases, only extending about 50 miles above the
Earth's surface. If Earth were smaller, an atmosphere would be impossible, like the
planet Mercury. If Earth were larger, its atmosphere would contain free hydrogen, like
Jupiter.3 Earth is the only known planet equipped with an atmosphere of the right
mixture of gases to sustain plant, animal and human life.

The Earth is located the right distance from the sun. Consider
the temperature swings we encounter, roughly -30 degrees to
+120 degrees. If the Earth were any further away from the
sun, we would all freeze. Any closer and we would burn up.
Even a fractional variance in the Earth's position to the sun
would make life on Earth impossible. The Earth remains this
perfect distance from the sun while it rotates around the sun
at a speed of nearly 67,000 mph. It is also rotating on its axis,
allowing the entire surface of the Earth to be properly warmed
and cooled every day.

And our moon is the perfect size and distance from the Earth for its gravitational pull.
The moon creates important ocean tides and movement so ocean waters do not
stagnate, and yet our massive oceans are restrained from spilling over across the
continents.4

Water...colorless, odorless and without taste, and yet no living thing can survive without
it. Plants, animals and human beings consist mostly of water (about two-thirds of the
human body is water). You'll see why the characteristics of water are uniquely suited to
life:

It has an unusually high boiling point and freezing point. Water allows us to live in an
environment of fluctuating temperature changes, while keeping our bodies a steady
98.6 degrees.

Water is a universal solvent. This property of water means
that thousands of chemicals, minerals and nutrients can be
carried throughout our bodies and into the smallest blood
vessels.5
Water is also chemically neutral. Without affecting the makeup of the substances it
carries, water enables food, medicines and minerals to be absorbed and used by the
body.

Water has a unique surface tension. Water in plants can therefore flow upward against
gravity, bringing life-giving water and nutrients to the top of even the tallest trees.

Water freezes from the top down and floats, so fish can live in the winter.

Ninety-seven percent of the Earth's water is in the oceans. But on our Earth, there is a
system designed which removes salt from the water and then distributes that water
throughout the globe. Evaporation takes the ocean waters, leaving the salt, and forms
clouds which are easily moved by the wind to disperse water over the land, for
vegetation, animals and people. It is a system of purification and supply that sustains
life on this planet, a system of recycled and reused water.6

The human brain...simultaneously processes an amazing amount of information. Your
brain takes in all the colors and objects you see, the temperature around you, the
pressure of your feet against the floor, the sounds around you, the dryness of your
mouth, even the texture of your keyboard. Your brain holds and processes all your
emotions, thoughts and memories. At the same time your brain keeps track of the
ongoing functions of your body like your breathing pattern, eyelid movement, hunger
and movement of the muscles in your hands.

The human brain processes more than a million messages a
second.7 Your brain weighs the importance of all this data,
filtering out the relatively unimportant. This screening function
is what allows you to focus and operate effectively in your
world. The brain functions differently than other organs. There
is an intelligence to it, the ability to reason, to produce
feelings, to dream and plan, to take action, and relate to other
people.

The eye...can distinguish among seven million colors. It has
automatic focusing and handles an astounding 1.5 million messages -- simultaneously.8
Evolution focuses on mutations and changes from and within existing organisms. Yet
evolution alone does not fully explain the initial source of the eye or the brain -- the start
of living organisms from nonliving matter.

2. Does God exist? The universe had a start - what caused it?

Scientists are convinced that our universe began with one enormous explosion of
energy and light, which we now call the Big Bang. This was the singular start to
everything that exists: the beginning of the universe, the start of space, and even the
initial start of time itself.
Astrophysicist Robert Jastrow, a self-described agnostic, stated, "The seed of
everything that has happened in the Universe was planted in that first instant; every star,
every planet and every living creature in the Universe came into being as a result of
events that were set in motion in the moment of the cosmic explosion...The Universe
flashed into being, and we cannot find out what caused that to happen." 9

Steven Weinberg, a Nobel laureate in Physics, said at the moment of this explosion,
"the universe was about a hundred thousands million degrees Centigrade...and the
universe was filled with light."10

The universe has not always existed. It had a start...what caused that? Scientists have
no explanation for the sudden explosion of light and matter.

3. Does God exist? The universe operates by uniform laws of nature. Why does it?

Much of life may seem uncertain, but look at what we can count on day after day:
gravity remains consistent, a hot cup of coffee left on a counter will get cold, the earth
rotates in the same 24 hours, and the speed of light doesn't change -- on earth or in
galaxies far from us.

How is it that we can identify laws of nature that never change? Why is the universe so
orderly, so reliable?

"The greatest scientists have been struck by how strange this is. There is no logical
necessity for a universe that obeys rules, let alone one that abides by the rules of
mathematics. This astonishment springs from the recognition that the universe doesn't
have to behave this way. It is easy to imagine a universe in which conditions change
unpredictably from instant to instant, or even a universe in which things pop in and out
of existence."11

Richard Feynman, a Nobel Prize winner for quantum electrodynamics, said, "Why
nature is mathematical is a mystery...The fact that there are rules at all is a kind of
miracle."12

4. Does God exist? The DNA code informs, programs a cell's behavior.

All instruction, all teaching, all training comes with intent.
Someone who writes an instruction manual does so with
purpose. Did you know that in every cell of our bodies there
exists a very detailed instruction code, much like a miniature
computer program? As you may know, a computer program is
made up of ones and zeros, like this: 110010101011000. The
way they are arranged tell the computer program what to do.
The DNA code in each of our cells is very similar. It's made
up of four chemicals that scientists abbreviate as A, T, G, and
C. These are arranged in the human cell like this: CGTGTGACTCGCTCCTGAT and so
on. There are three billion of these letters in every human cell!!

Well, just like you can program your phone to beep for specific reasons, DNA instructs
the cell. DNA is a three-billion-lettered program telling the cell to act in a certain way. It
is a full instruction manual.13

Why is this so amazing? One has to ask....how did this
information program wind up in each human cell? These are
not just chemicals. These are chemicals that instruct, that
code in a very detailed way exactly how the person's body
should develop.

Natural, biological causes are completely lacking as an
explanation when programmed information is involved. You
cannot find instruction, precise information like this, without
someone intentionally constructing it.

5. Does God exist? We know God exists because he pursues us. He is constantly initiating
and seeking for us to come to him.

I was an atheist at one time. And like many atheists, the issue of people believing in
God bothered me greatly. What is it about atheists that we would spend so much time,
attention, and energy refuting something that we don't believe even exists?! What
causes us to do that? When I was an atheist, I attributed my intentions as caring for
those poor, delusional people...to help them realize their hope was completely ill-
founded. To be honest, I also had another motive. As I challenged those who believed
in God, I was deeply curious to see if they could convince me otherwise. Part of my
quest was to become free from the question of God. If I could conclusively prove to
believers that they were wrong, then the issue is off the table, and I would be free to go
about my life.

I didn't realize that the reason the topic of God weighed so
heavily on my mind, was because God was pressing the
issue. I have come to find out that God wants to be known.
He created us with the intention that we would know him. He
has surrounded us with evidence of himself and he keeps the
question of his existence squarely before us. It was as if I
couldn't escape thinking about the possibility of God. In fact,
the day I chose to acknowledge God's existence, my prayer
began with, "Ok, you win..." It might be that the underlying
reason atheists are bothered by people believing in God is
because God is actively pursuing them.

I am not the only one who has experienced this. Malcolm Muggeridge, socialist and
philosophical author, wrote, "I had a notion that somehow, besides questing, I was
being pursued." C.S. Lewis said he remembered, "...night after night, feeling whenever
my mind lifted even for a second from my work, the steady, unrelenting approach of Him
whom I so earnestly desired not to meet. I gave in, and admitted that God was God, and
knelt and prayed: perhaps, that night, the most dejected and reluctant convert in all of
England."

Lewis went on to write a book titled, "Surprised by Joy" as a result of knowing God. I too
had no expectations other than rightfully admitting God's existence. Yet over the
following several months, I became amazed by his love for me.

6. Does God exist? Unlike any other revelation of God, Jesus Christ is the clearest, most
specific picture of God revealing himself to us.

Why Jesus? Look throughout the major world religions and you'll find that Buddha,
Muhammad, Confucius and Moses all identified themselves as teachers or prophets.
None of them ever claimed to be equal to God. Surprisingly, Jesus did. That is what
sets Jesus apart from all the others. He said God exists and you're looking at him.
Though he talked about his Father in heaven, it was not from the position of separation,
but of very close union, unique to all humankind. Jesus said that anyone who had seen
Him had seen the Father, anyone who believed in him, believed in the Father.

He said, "I am the light of the world, he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will
have the light of life."14 He claimed attributes belonging only to God: to be able to forgive
people of their sin, free them from habits of sin, give people a more abundant life and
give them eternal life in heaven. Unlike other teachers who focused people on their
words, Jesus pointed people to himself. He did not say, "follow my words and you will
find truth." He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father but
through me."15

What proof did Jesus give for claiming to be divine? He did what people can't do.
Jesus performed miracles. He healed people...blind, crippled, deaf, even raised a
couple of people from the dead. He had power over objects...created food out of thin air,
enough to feed crowds of several thousand people. He performed miracles over
nature...walked on top of a lake, commanding a raging storm to stop for some friends.
People everywhere followed Jesus, because he constantly met their needs, doing the
miraculous. He said if you do not want to believe what I'm telling you, you should at
least believe in me based on the miracles you're seeing.16

Jesus Christ showed God to be gentle, loving, aware of our self-centeredness and
shortcomings, yet deeply wanting a relationship with us. Jesus revealed that although
God views us as sinners, worthy of his punishment, his love for us ruled and God came
up with a different plan. God himself took on the form of man and accepted the
punishment for our sin on our behalf. Sounds ludicrous? Perhaps, but many loving
fathers would gladly trade places with their child in a cancer ward if they could. The
Bible says that the reason we would love God is because he first loved us.
Jesus died in our place so we could be forgiven. Of all the religions known to humanity,
only through Jesus will you see God reaching toward humanity, providing a way for us
to have a relationship with him. Jesus proves a divine heart of love, meeting our needs,
drawing us to himself. Because of Jesus' death and resurrection, he offers us a new life
today. We can be forgiven, fully accepted by God and genuinely loved by God. He says,
"I have loved you with an everlasting love, therefore I have continued my faithfulness to
you."17 This is God, in action.

Does God exist? If you want to know, investigate Jesus Christ. We're told that "God so
loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not
perish but have eternal life."18

God does not force us to believe in him, though he could. Instead, he has provided
sufficient proof of his existence for us to willingly respond to him. The earth's perfect
distance from the sun, the unique chemical properties of water, the human brain, DNA,
the number of people who attest to knowing God, the gnawing in our hearts and minds
to determine if God is there, the willingness for God to be known through Jesus Christ. If
you need to know more about Jesus and reasons to believe in him, please see: Beyond
Blind Faith.

If you want to begin a relationship with God now, you can.

This is your decision, no coercion here. But if you want to be forgiven by God and come
into a relationship with him, you can do so right now by asking him to forgive you and
come into your life. Jesus said, "Behold, I stand at the door [of your heart] and knock.
He who hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into him [or her]." 19 If you want
to do this, but aren't sure how to put it into words, this may help: "Jesus, thank you for
dying for my sins. You know my life and that I need to be forgiven. I ask you to forgive
me right now and come into my life. I want to know you in a real way. Come into my life
now. Thank you that you wanted a relationship with me. Amen."

God views your relationship with him as permanent. Referring to all those who believe
in him, Jesus Christ said of us, "I know them, and they follow me; and I give them
eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand."20

So, does God exist? Looking at all these facts, one can conclude that a loving God does
exist and can be known in an intimate, personal way. If you need more information
about Jesus' claim to divinity, or about God's existence, or if you have similar important
   questions, please email us.

   I just asked Jesus into my life (some helpful information follows)...

   I may want to ask Jesus into my life, please explain this more fully...

   I have a question or comment...
About the Author: As a former atheist, Marilyn Adamson found it difficult to refute the continuously answered prayers and quality of life of a
close friend. In challenging the beliefs of her friend, Marilyn was amazed to learn the wealth of objective evidence pointing to the existence of
God. After about a year of persistent questioning, she responded to God's offer to come into her life and has found faith in Him to be
constantly substantiated and greatly rewarding.
