Why Atheists prefer Alien Seeders over God
The world’s most vaunted Atheist thought leader, Richard Dawkins, believes that the creator may be an alien designer with vast technological knowledge who, at some point, seeded the earth with the makings of all life. From whence the alien designer with highly advanced intelligence and technology came, he doesn’t bother to explain. But a man proclaimed by the secular world to be a great thinker and leader among an elite class of skeptics, non-believers and self-labeled Atheists, doesn’t seem to have a problem with “intelligent design” or a “creative force” in the universe. Dawkins just has a problem with the character of God as understood by Western religions, especially Judeo-Christian religions which embrace Jehovah, the Creator God of the Old Testament. Of Jehovah, Dawkins said:
“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”
Dawkins, a man of great intellectual capacity–at least his followers believe he has great intellectual capacity– has failed to understand the nature and purpose of Jehovah, something that even Biblical neophytes can glean from the drama, gore, warfare and destruction recorded through thousands of years of human generations. He overlooks the loving civil and personal rules of worship and conduct prescribed within the Ten Commandments, and the saving redemption, tender mercies, prophesies, and beautiful psalms proclaimed by men such as Job, contained in the Old Testament.
He finds the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob “unpleasant,” but Dawkins seems “intrigued” by the alien creator. This is how he believes man may have come to be:
“It could come about in the following way…it could be that at some earlier time, somewhere in the universe a civilization evolved, probably by some form of Darwinian means, to a very high level of technology, and designed a form of life they seeded onto, perhaps, this planet.”
“That is a possibility, and an intriguing possibility. And I suppose it’s possible that you might find evidence of that if you look at the details of chemistry, of microbiology, that you might find a signature of some sort of designer.”
But more than a beef with Jehovah, or God the Eternal Father, or even the Creator who created man in His own image and likeness, I believe that Dawkins and his followers have a beef with the moral character of God. After all, if Dawkins can believe in an alien designer–without addressing where the alien designer came from–a creator being, a powerful and–if not omniscient, then extremely advanced–progenitor of life on earth, it becomes clear that Dawkins and his Atheist fellows reject more than just the source of creation.
Of religion and God, Dawkins also said:
“It is a liberating thing to free yourselves from primitive superstition.”
“I think when you give up God there is a great sense of release and freedom.”
Modern Atheists, with Richard Dawkins as a key thought leader, are less concerned with the origin of life than they are concerned with the freedom, license, release from obligation to a moral being, to do whatever the Hell they want. And yes, I mean to say Hell.
I’ve long suspected this about the Atheist movement. For some folks it’s simply easier to pretend there are no moral absolutes and no God of moral absolutes and no moral standards by which one will be judged in this life or the next. Abortion, homosexuality, Communism, all evil practices and ideologies have gained traction as Western cultures have rejected God and embraced godlessness.
Without a moral God, there is no need for the painful self-reflective process of repentance. Without a moral God, there is no obligation to do what is in the best interests of others, especially those who have no influence over another or power to do unto another. Without a moral God, immorality is not a thing, and constraints on behavior are dictated only by cultural norms, or personal appetites in secret places. Without a moral God, reality can be suspended; unborn babies can become “products of conception,” Men can marry men and women can marry women. Men can BE women and women can BE men. Without a moral God, man makes up the rules.
It’s not that Atheists reject the idea of a creator being, rather they reject the moral character, and precepts of God the Eternal Father. Although some more scientifically-grounded Atheists may be full-blown skeptics of every weird idea, including the idea that the earth was seeded by a highly-advanced alien creator, they tend to have a common enemy; religion, especially Judeo-Christian Western religion. Take a minute and read some Atheist forums or commentaries and you will see a merciless barrage of insults and blasphemies hurled, not at the 3 a.m. radio show alien believers, but at Christians and Jews of traditional religious inclinations.
