Why bother debating the faith?
So why should anyone be interested in meeting
or listening to the current ranking most famous atheist in the Western
world? Why would the Roundtable spend time and money covering the debate on
radio and broadcasting it nationwide? What is the connection between a
debate over the book, The God Delusion, and the work of the American Policy
Roundtable. A few journalists asked that question as we broadcast the God
Delusion debate from Birmingham, Alabama.
If Dr. Dawkins is right, and there is no
God, then America is in real trouble. You see, the very founding of this
nation in the Declaration of Independence boldly declares there is a God who
created us all. It goes farther to declare this as a self-evident truth. Our
rights, according to this document, do not come from government or science,
or Charles Darwin. They come from a uniquely personal God.
So if Professor Dawkins is right and God is
simply an outdated delusion, the very premise of the Declaration of
Independence is equally a delusion. This makes the US Constitution, which is
equally constructed from a Biblical worldview, equally delusional. The God
of the Bible is a vital element of the American equation of civil
government. If you take God out of the equation, you can only expect a very
different America to result.
So if Dr. Dawkins is right, and what he
advocates is the new doctrine taught throughout all our schools and
universities, you can expect a very different government in Washington D.C.
and very soon. Ideas have consequences.
