Who has witnessed the flying spaghetti monster?

imagesDear Richard Dawkins,

How Many Eyewitnesses of the Flying Spaghetti Monster
Have Willingly Died for Their Witness?

No group who has claimed to witness the flying spaghetti monster has died rather than deny their claim. Yet, early Christians suffered poverty, torture and death rather than deny they had witnessed the resurrection of Jesus Christ. No other religion presents such a set of claims.

The reason there is a church of Jesus Christ and NOT a church of the flying spaghetti monster is that those who walked with Jesus witnessed something that evoked such faith in them that they were willing to be impoverished, tortured and killed rather than deny what they have seen.

Merely a bundle of preferences

mattRawlingsNew Atheists are quick to point out that they reject the violence of Stalin’s Russia, Pol Pot’s killing fields, Mao’s China, Castro’s Cuba and Kim Jim Il’s North Korea. But the problem is their rejection is wholly arbitrary for that have no objective means for opposing it. Leading atheist journalist and historian S.T. Joshi admits in his book “The Unbelievers: The Evolution of Modern Atheist”, that if you are an atheist , “…it is the brutal truth that…(a) system of morals is merely a bundle of preferences…” Joshi, like the late J.L. Mackie, Albert Camus and John Paul Sartre have the guts to admit the logical consequence of atheism is a lack of any objective moral laws and duties.

Would You Like to Live in North Korea?

Matt RawlingsI often hear New Atheist leaders like Sam Harris argue that a society governed purely by science and has banned religion would produce a better culture. Yet, every nation that has followed this prescription has been a totalitarian disaster with a body count that is beyond the grasp of the most horrific imagination.
