In all respects, but without dismissing the branches and peripherals of atheism; atheism, itself, boils down to this very simple philosophy, “Survival of the Fittest!” With this in mind, obviously, God is ruled out of the picture by the mere fact that atheism leans heavily on naturalism. It’s very foundation and the premise is that of evolution, even though it has never been documented, neither has it been seen in any lifetime or aeon!
Therefore, with regards to the fundamental belief of atheism i.e. No God; survival of the fittest, and evolution, then it is safe to say that morality; that which is given by God, ordained by God, and impressed by God on and in the hearts of all men – that deep central core of the spirit and being of man – is fervently rejected by atheism and its proponents.
There are two points to be made on the above-mentioned paragraphs.
1. Atheists would most certainly and with great hope consider themselves to be in the group of, “The Fittest” for that is their own Anthem, and thereby labelling the poorer and the sickly and the less fortunate as the determining factor and as a resulting example of, “I told you so” of their belief system; their “Faith”!
2. Now, having, “Survival of the Fittest” in mind; if and when an atheist is violated because of the obvious lack of morality in this world, for instance; he or she is robbed by another person, then it stands to reason that the person who did the robbing, in this case, is, “The Fittest” because the robber appropriated the goods of the atheist; that which the atheist deems valuable. The atheist was outsmarted by a prowling thief, even though the thief may not even have had the equivalent or near academic calibre of the atheist.
Another example and this should be the last, as the number of examples are endless but, suffice it to say, if – and I say this with trepidation – when an atheist’s spouse (taking for granted for arguments sake it is his wife and that she too is an atheist) was brutally raped, tortured, and then murdered; the atheist, whether he like it or not, is left to concede that he was definitely not the fittest in this incident because the violent perpetrator got the better of him by raping, torturing, and ending the life of his wife! The atheist had survived, but most certainly was not the fittest in this instance, for again, the “Immoral” or even amoral perpetrator has taken that which is most valuable to the atheist, thereby making the perpetrator “The Fittest” once again.
Now, the question has to be begged; how could that be? In anyone’s books, immorality which is agreeable on both instances has won the day! Unfortunately, the atheist has had to concede to natural selection and survival of the fittest and yet it was “Immorality” that came out strong and proven to be the fittest in both cases. Naturalistic atheism denies morals by its own virtues and standards but yet clings to the morals that would hopefully cause them to survive. Paradox and Irony are the bitter Demons of its and their own devising schemes and it has bitten them more than once, injecting deadly venom into their veins, but yet they ask for more with vehement faithfulness to their cause! The bitter pill of “Immorality” – the anthem by which they go by – seems to be their own demise and to any society that lends an ear to its coaching.
In all cases of atheism, whenever the survival of the fittest has come into play, immorality has always won the day, but yet inadvertently and or even knowingly, as blind as the “Evolving Eye”, atheism has been the downfall of its own pyramid and in and of itself is in fact its own “Trojan Horse”!
No God, no future! Know God, know future!
