2007 New Book: 'God is NOT great'
by Author & self-proclaimed Atheist: Christopher Hitchens
Below: A response to Hitchens' book, by Rob Conrad [Aug.2007] :
Any person would immediately agree [including any atheist] that a computer, with all of its sophistication of technology & detailed parts, could NEVER have just 'evolved' into its final form or that it just occurred suddenly with a 'big bang'. The world would not need the Father of Modern Science & devout Christian, Sir Isaac Newton, to discover that kind of simple logic.
On the contrary, ANY PERSON [inlcuding every athiest, even a child] would agree to the simple logic that any existing computer could ONLY HAVE resulted by an INTELLIGENT DESIGNER, who created it. 'Man' being the 'designer' in this example. Simple Logic.
But, how much more sophisticated is the human being than a mere computer?? Wouldn't it take, logically, a much greater INTELLIGENT DESIGNER to create 'man' [the highest form of sophistication & even pro-creative being] , than it took for we mere 'men' to create an exisiting computer?
In fact, 'man', or the human being, is himself, the greatest 'proof' of God's very existence, the very Highest Intelligent Designer who created him.
Scriptures say: 'any person who comes to God, MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS [already exists], and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.'. [Heb.11:6]. He indeed is a 'rewarder' to those who 'seek' Him.
He's not standing ready at all times to ridicule us & knock us all around from anger, like so many people wrongfully interpret God to be. Not at all.
1 John 4:8 states that 'God is love'.
But, Hebrews 11:6 [above] is a powerful promise about the Creator Himself as being our 'rewarder' because He cares MOST deeply about the apple of His eye, His beloved and most prized creation: 'MAN'. God is ready right now with many rewards for His children.
The Heavenly Father loves His created children infinitely more than even the greatest earthly father could ever love his own earthly children. And why not?
He is our Heavenly Father, the very INTELLIGENT DESIGNER who created us and who loves us.
