American Atheists Hide Behind the Fairy Tale of Evolution

by Gary DeMar

American Atheists, who represent the religion of the New Atheist movement in the United States, have “launched a billboard campaign in several Bible Belt states urging people to skip church this Christmas and stop listening to ‘fairy tales.’”

The billboards contain this message showing a child writing a letter to Santa Claus: “Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is to skip church! I’m too old for fairy tales.

“‘Even children know churches spew absurdity, which is why they don’t want to attend services. Enjoy the time with your family and friends instead,’ said American Atheists President David Silverman. ‘Today’s adults have no obligation to pretend to believe the lies their parents believed. It’s OK to admit that your parents were wrong about God, and it’s definitely OK to tell your children the truth.’”

I find everything that David Silverman and the American Atheists do quite amusing. How does he know if anything he is claiming about his worldview is true? Talk about fairy tales.

Here’s the sign that best fits Mr. Silverman’s fairy tale atheism:

“Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is to skip science class! I’m too old for fairy tales that teach that I evolved from pond scum.”

In order to be an atheist, a person must forget everything he learned in his high school science classes and adopt the long-refuted belief in spontaneous generation – life from non-life – a fairy tale that was

“decisively dispelled during the 19th century by the experiments of Louis Pasteur. He expanded upon the investigations of predecessors (such as Francesco Redi who, in the 17th century, had performed experiments based on the same principles). However, the experimental difficulties are greater than people might think, and objections from persons holding the traditional views persisted. Many of these residual objections were routed by the work of John Tyndall, succeeding the work of Pasteur. Ultimately, the ideas of spontaneous generation were displaced by advances in germ theory and cell theory. Disproof of the traditional ideas of spontaneous generation is no longer controversial among professional biologists. Objections and doubts have been dispelled by studies and documentation of the life cycles of various life forms.”

Even with the long ago burial of spontaneous generation, the evolutionists writing for the Wikipedia article try to resurrect the long-dead corpse with fanciful pixie dust…
