“I had motives for not wanting the world to have a meaning; consequently assumed that it had none, and was able without any difficulty to find satisfying reasons for this assumption. The philosopher who finds no meaning in the world is not concerned exclusively with a problem in metaphysics, he is also concerned to prove that there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why his friends should not seize political power and govern in the way that they find most advantegous to themselves…For myself, as, no doubt, for most of my contemporaries, the philosophy of meaningless was essentially an instrument of liberation. The liberation we desired was simultaneously liberation from a certain political and economic system and liberation from a certain system of morality. We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom; we objected to the political and economic system because it was unjust. The supporters of these systems claimed that in some way they embodied the meaning (a Christian meaning, they insisted) of the world. There was one admirably simple method of confuting these people and at the same time justifying ourselves in our political and erotical revolt: we could deny that the world had any meaning whatsoever.” (Ends and Means, 1937)
Wow! This quotation summarizes all we need to know about atheism, its actual agenda, and its fanatical aversion to Christianity, traditional customs and moral behavior.
No wonder, there’s an increasing in their zealous support of materialistic theories like evolution, big-bang, multiverse, string theory, as well as an world-wide spreading of “free, critical thinking”, “humanist” movements, even despite the blatant absence of evidences substantially backing up and supporting these naturalistic, anti-theist theories, and the bankruptcy of the mentioned ideologies.
Amusing to see them taking side against Christianity, faith, belief in God, all the while (as Rebecca Watson, atheist blogger can well report) holding quite a immoral, libertine behavior, from which we can only conclude that atheism, godlessness is very dangerous to society, and the bad fruits of that can be seem anywhere. Even the hailed Nordic nations, such as Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, claimed to be nations with high human development, they’re actually far from that! Depression (and other mental illness) only increases, suicide and attempts rates are very high, alcoholism, drug addiction, divorces, racism, neo-Nazi movements, child and elderly abuse, domestic violence and other social problems simply insist on increasing!

Not even the science is spared by anti-God agendas!
‘We take the side of science in spite of the patent
absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure
to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and
life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community
for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a
prior commitment, a commitment to materialism.
It is not that the methods and institutions of science
somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of
the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are
forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to
create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts
that produce material explanations, no matter how
counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the
uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is an absolute, for
we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door.”
Richard Lewontin, Billions and billions of demons (review of The Demon-
Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Darkby Carl Sagan,
1997), The New York Review, p. 31, 9 January 1997.
Dr Michael Ruse, Canadian, science philosopher affirmed:
‘at some very basic level, evolution as a scientific theory
makes a commitment to a kind of naturalism, namely that at
some level one is going to exclude miracles and these sorts
of things, come what may.’
‘evolution, akin to religion, involves making certain a
priori or metaphysical assumptions, which at some level
cannot be proven empirically.’
What about abiogenesis?
“The belief that life on earth arose spontaneously from nonliving
matter, is simply a matter of faith in strict
reductionism and is based entirely on ideology.”
Hubert P. Yockey, 1992. Information Theory and Molecular Biology,
Cambridge University Press, UK, p. 284.
Another intriguing admission:
‘Even if all the data point to an intelligent designer, such an
hypothesis is excluded from science because it is not

‘It is no more heretical to say the Universe displays purpose,
as Hoyle has done, than to say that it is pointless, as Steven
Weinberg has done. Both statements are metaphysical and
outside science. Yet it seems that scientists are permitted by
their own colleagues to say metaphysical things about lack
of purpose and not the reverse. This suggests to me that
science, in allowing this metaphysical notion, sees itself as
religion and presumably as an atheistic religion (if you can
have such a thing).’

“Never in the history of man has so terrific a calamity befallen the race as that which all who look may now behold advancing as a deluge, black with destruction, resistless in might, uprooting our most cherished hopes, engulfing our most precious creed, and burying our highest life in mindless desolation . . The flood-gates of infidelity are open, and Atheism overwhelming is upon us.”—*George Romanes, A Candid Examination of Theism (1878).
Evolution, neo-atheism’s backbone, plays a great role on it:
“As feared by this great man of science, the evolutionary idea of civilization has grown into a practical method of thought and code of conduct, affecting the reasoning and actions of every part of the human race. Human conduct is modelled on the philosophy that finds current acceptance.”—H. Enoch, Evolution or Creation (1986), pp. 144-145.
“Our own generation has lived to see the inevitable result of evolutionary teaching—the result that Sedgwick foresaw as soon as he had read the Origin. Mussolini’s attitude was completely dominated by evolution. In public utterances, he repeatedly used the Darwinian catchwords while he mocked at perpetual peace, lest it hinder the evolutionary process. In Germany, it was the same. Adolf Hitler’s mind was captivated by evolutionary teaching—probably since the time he was a boy. Evolutionary ideas, quite undisguised, lie at the basis of all that is the worst in Mein Kamp and his public speeches.”— R.E.D. Clark, Darwin: Before and After (1948), p. 115.
“I am haunted by a conviction that the nihilistic philosophy which so-called educated opinion chose to adopt following the publication of the Origin of Species committed mankind to a course of automatic self-destruction. A doomsday was then set ticking.”—Sir Fred Hoyle, The Intelligent Universe (1983), p. 9. [Hoyle is a renowned British Astrophysicist.] (no surprise Sir Hoyle was denied the Nobel prize…)
“Darwin’s books were quickly translated into all the earth’s main languages, and the political leaders of the various motions began using the Darwinian catchwords to justify their expansionist ambitions. The influence in Germany was especially profound. There, the atheistic biologist Ernst Haeckel embarked on a popularization campaign fully comparable to that of Huxley in England. The philosopher Nietzsche, with his doctrine of the ‘superman,’ was also greatly influenced by Darwin, though he thought Darwin did not go far enough in promoting the militaristic and racist implications of his theories. Darwinistic imperialism had great impact on the policies of Bismarck and even more so on those of Adolph Hitler.”—H.M. Morris, History of Modern Christianity (1984, p. 47.
Altruism? Love thy neighbor? Not under the optics of evolution/materialism:
“Anything that has evolved by natural selection should be selfish.”—*Life: How Did it Get Here? (1985), p. 177.
“Mankind struggles upwards, in which millions are trampled to death, that thousands may mount on their bodies.”—*Clara Lucas Balfour (1808-1878), quoted in Asimov’s Book of Science and Nature Quotations, p. 88 [chapter on “Evolution”].
“Monism” is the theory that all reality consists only of matter. This teaching is an important basis of atheism.
“Of all the forerunners of Hitler in Germany—Hegel, Comte, Nietzsche, Bernhardi, and others—the most significant was certainly Ernst Haeckel, the atheistic founder of the Monist League and the most vigorous promoter of both biological Darwinism and social Darwinism in continental Europe in the late-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.”—H.M. Morris, Long War Against God (1989), pp. 77-78.
“Marx and Engels were doctrinaire evolutionists, and so have all Communists been ever since. Since atheism is a basic tenet of Marxism in general, and Soviet Communism in particular, it is obvious that evolution must be the number one tenet of communism. Lenin and Trotsky and Stalin were all atheistic evolutionists, and so are today’s Communist leaders. In fact, they have to be in order ever to get to be Communist leaders!”—Henry Morris, Long War Against God (1989), p. 85.

If we think for a little, we can come to a sad, sorrow series of “coincidences”: right after the increasing in secular, godless movements, prior, during and after the “Enlightenment”, with Engels, Hegel, Nietzsche, Feuerbach, Schopenhauer, Marx, Lenin, and other so-called “brilliant intellectuals”, we’ve had: I World War (up to 15 million deaths), II World War (+66 mi deaths), French and other bloody revolutions (just the French one has been killed almost 600 k), fascism, nazism (Courtois: 25,000,000), communism (75 t0 113 millions deaths)… So, we can conclude that atheism isn’t the solution; all the way around, it’s actually the worst aggravating for social problems, human life.
God bless you!
