IN HISTORY




UPCOMING EVENTS

GETTING STARTED


If someone were to tell you that they were trying to prove the existence of God you might believe them, than leave it at that. If someone were to tell you that they had proof that God does in fact exist you might asked what evidence they have to make such a claim.

Choosing to be an atheist doesn't require a proof of existence of God, it requires only that one make a statement of personal choice. Richard Dawkins, a former Oxford Professor, who is one of the most well known atheists of our time, has gone beyond simply making a statement. He has written a book called the "God Delusion" which became a best-seller. His rising to the occasion gave others reason to also stand-up for the cause. Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, and Daniel Dennett are three other well known atheists who have also written books. The four of them Including Richard Dawkins have in the past referred to themselves as the "Four Horsemen" They also promote a movement known as the 'OUT' campaign.

But even before this latest atheist movement began there was another group that rose to an occasion which was almost opposite in belief. They believe that there could be a God, but its also possible that some other entity caused life to occur on this planet Earth and they too had made a statement, "That Life is to Complicated to have happened all by itself". This earlier movement, with it members mostly known as 'Intelligent Design' theorist, also wrote books and created websites.

At the forefront of this movement are the
Discovery Institute and its action plan known as the 'Wedge' strategy. William Dembski and his websites, 'Uncommon Descent' and 'Design Inference' are the better known of these people and sites and as with Richard Dawkins, he too wrote a book, actually several of them. But his never made it onto any best seller lists. None of the books written by any of 'Intelligent Design' theorist ever ended up on a Best Seller list. Other well known "Intelligent Design" theorists include Philip E. Johnson, Michael Behe, and Stephen C. Meyer. Other groups that promote the ideas of Intelligent Design are the 'Intelligent Design and Evolution Awareness Center' which attempts to create clubs within schools and is headed by Casey Luskin and 'The International Society for Complexity, Information, and Design' (ISCID) All the players within the Intelligent Design camp tend to be associated in one form or another with each of the groups.

But even before the Intelligent Design groups formed there was another group that existed and when the time came they rose to the occasion and stood against the Intelligent Design theorists ideas, and more so its Wedge strategy as well the ideas of creationism. Known as the 'National Center for Science Education' (NCSE) they defend the teaching of evolutionary biology and opposes the teaching of religious views in science classes in the public school systems. In 2005 they did so when they assisted the plaintiffs in the 'Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District trial‎, which so far has been the most prominent case testing the constitutionality of Intelligent Design in public school science classes. Barbara Forrest, who is an NCSE Director, was cited extensively in Judge John E. Jones III's decision which in part, determined that God was not the creator. Eugenie C. Scott, who is an American physical anthropologist, is the center's executive director.

When the Intelligent Design theorist put into motion their wedge strategy they never intended it to tie directly back to God. Their thoughts were that it would allow others to do that. But the consequence of their actions and lack of hard evidence caused the opposing camps to rise to the occasion and stand against its use, which they had done in the Kitzmiller V. the Dover Area schools trial. In the end it became more destructive to God than anything else.

Having evidence in support of there being a God must go well beyond a simple statement, strategy, or even a best-selling book. It must provide reliable and well documented evidence. It also requires that it be so simple that anyone could understand it. It may also require some degree of Divine Intervention at the personal level to get its point across. But more so, it must show at least some level of God's ongoing involvement in the world itself.

The best place to begin is here in the Learn section. In addition to this 'Getting Started' section there are seven more topics. Each button in the drop down menu will explain piece by piece everything that comes together to form the evidence for the case that I make, that God does in fact exist and can be proven beyond any shadow of a doubt.
