emptysetAtheism, often analogized by the mathematical symbol for the empty set,  means literally “without a belief in a god” . When used to describe people who have chosen gods other than the supernatural gods of  world’s chief religions, this is an oxymoron.  They are certainly not without a god, and are united in opposing the beliefs of theists, so perhaps a more appropriate name for so-called atheists would be anti-theists or anti-Christs.

Everyone has a god including those who call themselves atheists. This is clearly evident if the definition of a god is accepted as “that which one depends upon in time of trouble”.  Those who don’t believe in a supernatural god most certainly depend on someone or something when they are facing troubles in life. Their god may be money, heroes, a loved one or an ancestor, but most likely their god will amount to simply, themselves.  Neither atheists nor anyone else is truly without a god; the term atheist just doesn’t make sense.

Atheists in America over the years have fought against prayer in school, have sought to remove “God” from coinage, have fought against the placement of the ten commandments in public places, and have fought against the recognition of an Almighty God in state and local laws. Nothing brings so-called atheists together better than a fight against the wishes of those who believe in the Almighty to acknowledge God publicly. Although they claim they are not “anti” anything, atheists have often been successful in their efforts to hinder public acknowledgment of a supernatural God. They are really anti-theists not atheists.

The God of Christians said that whoever is not for Him is against Him. This is certainly an apt description of someone who is anti-Christ or against Christ. It is also an appropriate description of modern atheists who admittedly are not for Christ.  They ridicule Christians and others who accept the existence of an Almighty God and fight against the appearance of any public expression of this belief whether sponsored by government or not.  Not only are so-called atheists really anti-theists; they are also anti-Christ.

Atheists have proven themselves not only to be persons who don’t believe in the existence of a supernatural god, but those who are against the beliefs of Almighty God held by others.  They would certainly agree that they are not Christians which means, according to Christ, they are against Him and are therefore anti-Christ.  Christ also said that a person cannot serve two masters; they either serve God or Satan.  So, whether they know it or not, anti-theistic, anti-Christian atheists,  also, by default, make Satan their god and could  even be classified as Satanists.

alhambraIslam in America is more like a malignant cancer than a Trojan horse.  It does not contain a plot to secretly install an overpowering force that will strike when citizens are not paying attention, but has a peaceful, benign existence whose steady growth has been hardly noticed.   If history is an accurate indicator, it will continue to grow until it reaches its malignant form in fundamentalist Islam aimed at asserting its power over all of society by implementing Sharia law.  The true Islam is the religion practiced by Osama bin Laden and his extremist followers.

In the United States, Islam appears to be a peaceful religion practiced by its followers in tight-knit communities.  It is estimated that the number of Muslims living in America is  growing at a rate of 25% every ten years.  American Muslims seem to be good citizens and have assimilated well into American culture.  Although these modern Muslims already use their religion as a platform for social and political change, they deny that fundamentalism is the ultimate goal of Islam.  Some American Muslims have even naively said that Islam means “peace”.

But Islam does not mean”peace”; it means “submission” to Islamic law and to the will of Allah.  Simply put, it is the practice of bringing jihad, or holy war, to unite by force the world of unbelieving infidels, the Dar al-Harb, with the world of Muslims, the Dar al-Islam.  The ultimate goal of Islam is to bring the world of unbelievers into complete submission to the will of Allah.   Muslim means “those who submit”, and for extremist Muslim fundamentalists, this means submission to Sharia law, believed to summarize the will of Allah.  Under Sharia law, women committing adultery could be stoned, thieves could have their hands amputated, and homosexuals and apostates could be executed.

Muslims in America have begun to assert their power.  Efforts by Muslim promoters, and Muslim participation at the polls  have been paying off.  Foot baths, used by Muslims in preparation for prayers, have been installed in public, state-run, universities, and public prayers have even been allowed in some public schools for Muslims.  This is only the beginning of more Muslim influence to come in America.  In other countries, Canada and France for example, Islam has gained more strength with the establishment of Islamic courts that have begun to impose Sharia law on fellow Muslims.

Islam in America today appears to be a peaceful religion practiced by pious followers seeking justice and equality for society.  But, as their numbers grow, the true fundamentalist Islam will ultimately raise its ugly head and impose Islamic law on its followers first, then on the whole society.  Historically, this pattern has occurred around the world where Islam is predominate.  In the past 30 years, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, and other countries including several former soviet republics have fallen to Islam.  The fate of America and the Western world remains to be seen.
