Don't scoff

First published in Letters

HELLO Mr Banfield. I was wondering when you would enter the “scoffers” debate.

You, as an atheist, will obviously ridicule Biblical truths because atheists simply don’t believe in any, as you would call it, God or religious philosophy.

What a boring life!!

My Bible, which is the bestselling book in the world, declares that there will be “scoffers” in the days that we are living in (2 Peter 3). Scoff on Messrs Powell and Banfield, but just thank God that he is patient with you not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

Hang on a minute. An atheist “coming to repentance”. Yes, it has been known.

I am sure that every Christian reading these articles in Newport and other areas will be praying via an omnipresent God that today’s “scoffers” will be tomorrows “proclaimers” of the Gospel of Good News.

Lol. Christians. Gotta love 'em.

Having, as I do, an interest in science. Especially the fields of astro physics and cosmology as well as the mysteries of quantum mechanics - I have to say that, with all our modern technology, built upon centuries of scientific exploration and application, one thing becomes blatantly clear - we know very little about the true nature of the universe and beyond.

The very idea that thousands of years ago, some primitives, barely out of the hunter gatherer era had all the answers is, IMO hubris of the highest order and delusional to the point of insanity.

You people need to get a grip.
