LIARS ALL? The New Atheists (like Dawkins) Want to Make Lemmings of Our Children

Greetings friends, acquaintances, and unknown visitors.

Bottom line of today's post: Don't let your kids go see the "Golden Compass" movie. And don't give the "Golden Compass" folks your money.

So, who can ya trust these days? Especially when lots of shady characters seem to be lurking about in all sorts of places watching for times and ways to exploit and deceive us - or to spirit away our kids. Well, it seems that there is a special and very vocal bunch who very openly are seeking to lure our children into a lemming-like plunge over the cliff of personal or spiritual destruction.

Topic today is about ....

Liars all?

Remember when Jesus talked about the source of lies? Speaking to the Jews who opposed him, he said:
"You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies." (John 9:44)

Well, it seems the devil's disciples flourish yet today with the greatest lie of all - that God Himself either does not exist or does exist but is irrelevant. Or, more recently, that he is a weak god who is going to be killed in the end. Part of and parceled with this great lie is today's "new atheism," being fiercely and feverishly promulgated by such as Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris. Remember Richard Dawkins, the fundamentally dishonest fool (the Bible says that the fool says in his heart that there is no God)? Dawkins purposely uses a cleverly flawed argument to try to make evolution a done deal and God simply a done gone god.

BACKGROUND:
See point B.1 in the following link:

Also, you can read more about Dawkins in his exchange of views with human genome researcher Francis Collins in the TIME magazine article November 13, 2006. Or in the informative Newsweek article of September 11, 2006:

So be forewarned ... the cunning of snake-oil purveyors of the past can't hold a candle to the the new atheists who are promoting their damning fraud with zeal and relish.

In the dirty tricks department, sucking young children into fantasy stories which suddenly morph into faith-toxic fiery darts of evil, English atheist Philip Pullman seems to be riding the crest of the wave of darkness with his book series His Dark Materials and an upcoming "kids' movie, The Golden Compass, due for release December 7, 2007. The term "Day of Infamy" seems heading for tragic redefinition.

You should take the time to update yourself on "the new atheists." But be sure to pray for sound discernment. Otherwise, you may just think, "Huh? What's the big deal?"

Now, with all due respect to Dr. Laura, GO DO THE RIGHT THING.

P.S.
Just to whet your appetite and to tantalize your taster, here is part of the Rebecca Grace commentary in link (1). Note the last words are "don't be deceived."
"According to CNSNews.com, leading atheist writers and intellectuals are engaged in a "scientific" quest to ultimately destroy organized religion, particularly Christianity. Oxford professor Richard Dawkins, author Sam Harris and journalist Christopher Hitchens are some of the big names leading this "new atheism" initiative. Evidence of their agenda is seen in efforts such as the Out Campaign and the Blasphemy Challenge.
CNSNews.com defines the Out Campaign as "a movement started by Dawkins to encourage Americans to proudly display their atheism." ABC News describes the Blasphemy Challenge as a way "to challenge people to make videos of themselves denying, denouncing or blaspheming the Holy Spirit, and then post them on YouTube." ABC News also calls it "the cutting edge of a new and emboldened wave of atheism."
The Blasphemy Challenge targets teens while an upcoming movie that may have a similar agenda is likely to appeal to families, especially children.
The Golden Compass is a film from New Line Cinema based on the first book of a series, His Dark Materials, written by English atheist Philip Pullman. It is set to release December 7 in theaters nationwide. From watching the trailer, it's easy to see that the film has a C. S. Lewis/Narnia feel to it, but don't be deceived."
