So Desperate...

***Those who claim to be atheists are desperate to prove they're right. They latch on to stories like this, "Shocked Physicist Learns his Big Bang Theory is True." Read it. Tell me if you find one thing that convinces you that yup, something blew up, and here we are. The absurdity of the line of thought that the complexities of the earth, the human body, the perfection of the space between the earth and the sun, the food chain - that this all came about because of an explosion - because something came from nothing, really baffles me. If anything, science proves that if there's a Design, there's a Designer. I love this song from Carmen, "There Is A God."

93 million miles from the blistering surface of the sun
Hangs the planet earth
A rotating sphere perfectly suspended in the center of the universe
The ultimate creation from an infinate mind
An unbelievably intricate complex design
A supernatural testimony, an irrefutable sign that there is a God

The size, position and angle of the earth
Is a scientific phenomenon to see
A few degrees closer to the sun we'd disintegrate
A few degrees further, we'd freeze
The axis of the earth is tilted at a perfect 23 degree angle
And it's no mistake that it is
This allows equal global distribution to the rays of the sun
Making it possible for the food chain to exist

Or take for example the combination of nitrogen and oxygen
In the atmosphere we breathe every day
It just happens to be the exact mix that life needs to prosper
It doesn't happen on any other planet that way
You see the Bible says the invisible things of God
Are clearly seen through His creation, to believe this is not hard
If there's a design, there's a designer if there's a plan, there's a planner
And if there's a miracle, there is a God

There is a hope, there is a light
There is an answer to all answers
There is a flame that burns in the night
And I know, I know, I know there is a God

The Scripture says the heavens declare the glory of God
And the skies proclaim the work of His hands
If we allow our minds to drink in all the truth that just surrounds us
Creation itself will help us understand
Did you know the moon controls the tides?
It's the maid that cleans the ocean
Even the waves don't crash the shores in vain
The tides drag impurities into the depths of the sea
It's nature's constant recycling chain

It simply boggles the mind to think that the stars will rotate
With such exact precision that it's true
That the atomic clock with an error factor
Of less than three seconds per millennium is set by the way they move
Though they silently orbit, the sun, the moon, the stars
Are like celestial evangelists above
Who circle the earth every 24 hours shouting
In every language that there is a God

Atheism is the wedge under the foundation of our faith
Trying to topple our relationship with Christ
When the fool said in his heart there is no God
He rejects the truth God painted on the canvas of the night
Atheism has never created an artistic masterpiece
Never healed a fatal disease or calmed a fear
Atheism has never still given answers to our existence
Peace to a troubled mind or even dried a tear

For it's God who created heaven and earth
And flung the stars in space
And breathed in the handful of dirt and it became a man
It's God who sits on the circle of the earth
And measures the mountains in a scale
And holds the seven seas in the palm of His hand
It's God who sent His only begotten Son to the cross of Calvary
To save our souls from Hell and grave
It's God who creates, God who delivers
God who heals and God who is worthy of a thunderous ovation of praise
There is a hope, there is a light
There is an answer to all answers
There is a flame that burns in the night
And I know, I know, I know there is a God

Personally, I think deep down people who claim to be atheists know there is a God. They spend their lives trying to disprove what they don't want to believe. It breaks my heart, because there are people I love who are like this. There is no way to be truly happy, to really have joy in one's life, apart from accepting the love of God.  I believe that with all my heart. Sure, I get annoyed at the mockery and frankly, the silliness and desperation in some of the arguments. I don't stay annoyed for long, though, because I know the mockery and hatred is coming from emptiness and unhappiness, and I hate it that they don't have the hope of eternal salvation. They can, though, and I hope and pray that someday they do. 

***Russian deputy PM laughs at Obama's sanctions. Is this embarrassing, or what??

***Stuck in a $407,000 Obamacare nightmare. Oh, you can bet they're gonna try to shut HIM up.

***High earning residents are fleeing New Jersey because of high taxes. Duh. Too bad politicians can't figure out that people like to keep what they earn.

New Jersey’s high taxes may be costing the state billions of dollars a year in lost revenue as high-earning residents flee, according to a recent study.
The study, Exodus on the Parkway, was completed by Regent Atlantic last year but held for publication until after the November 2013 elections. The study stated it “intentionally” held its results “as 2014 is not an election year for state legislators” and it will “hopefully encourage a serious and objective dialogue aimed at addressing and solving the challenges that New Jersey currently faces.”
The study shows the state has been steadily losing high-net-worth residents since 2004, when Democratic Gov. Jim McGreevey signed the millionaire’s tax into law. The law raised the state income tax 41 percent on those earning $500,000 or more a year.

I don't care how much you earn, the government isn't entitled to 41% of it!
