The Kamloops atheist Society and the Centre for Inquiry in Kelowna have announced plans to run this advert on buses in the Kamloops, BC and Kelowna, BC areas in January 2011. It is one of two sponsored by local and national atheist groups. See the other ad here.
The message of the ad very obviously is that there is NO more extraordinary evidence available to support the claims of Christ than there is to validate the legend of bigfoot or the alleged sightings of UFOs. The website www.extraordinary-claims.com which is part of this advertising campaign, reaches the following conclusion in an article about God:
“God is a mythological construct invented by humans. The hypothesis of his, her, or its existence is unsupported by any evidence, fraught with logical contradictions, and – in cases where God is said to intervene in the world – often incompatible with solidly established scientific knowledge.” (more…)
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whore-mongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the take which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” –Revelation 21:8Revelation 21:8
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
The great catalogue of man’s sin lies open before us, that solemn list of crimes against God that will damn the soul of the guilty. God shall definitely judge liars, idolaters, and sorcerers. God will judge the abominable, the murderers and those who sell body and soul. (more…)
Niagara Daredevil Tells Reporter… “You die and that’s it.”
Karel Soucek was a professional stuntman with a flare. For eight years he planned his trip over the Horseshoe Falls in his bright, red, nine-foot barrel bearing the words, “The Last of Niagara’s Daredevils”. If someone followed him, he intended to repeat the act and always be the last.
On July 3, 1984, his barrel was lowered into the river 1000 feet from the cataract. In seconds, it was swept over the brink. Shortly after, Soucek emerged safe but bleeding. Having tasted success, he decided to build a museum at Niagara in which to display his stunting paraphernalia. He convinced a corporation to finance a barrel drop of 180 feet from the top of the Houston Astrodome into a tank of water to pay for his project.
Before the drop, a reporter asked if he believed in an after life. He replied, “There is no heaven or hell; there is no God. It’s all a myth. You’re born, you live, one day you die and that’s it.” (more…)

The incarnation of the Word
Please note: A link to an audio recording of this message can be found at the end of this article.
Scripture: “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14John 1:14
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth.

In a recent publicity campaign, American Atheists erected a billboard stating: “You know it’s a myth. This season celebrate reason.” In their estimation, an acceptance of the Scriptural revelation of Christ’s birth is an unreasonable acceptance of a myth!
In fact, the narrative of the birth of Christ is the record of wisdom, knowledge, logic and truth incarnate/personified. Nowhere is that point more concisely made than in this text. The use of the Greek term Logos as a title for the eternal person of God the Son makes this point. All that is truly logical and reasonable is personified in Christ!
However, the reason/truth that is embodied in Christ, is beyond the capability of depraved minds to grasp. The understanding of man has been disabled in this key area! No matter how he may excel in natural wisdom, he is disabled in the area of spiritual knowledge and discernment. It is for this reason that men are atheists! It is because of this spiritual death that they defy the reasonableness of Scriptural revelation and fly in the face of God’s existence and commands. (more…)
