What´s So Great About Christianity

"human minds have a built-in disposition toward illusion that reality must be exactly the way we experience it." There's more to music than just notes, so it must also be in the spiritual realm, but atheists are truly "dogmatic and arrogant". Reason is limited by our senses.

There are innumerable reasons why Christianity is the best, logical, and more reasonable choice for humans to make, more than I ever thought of. And Dinesh explains them all so cleverly, so completely, without leaving room for any "yes, but...". The author has clearly done his homework and anticipated all types of questions, insults, attitudes, etc that might be thrown at Christianity. The unbeliever cannot get away easily, the author fights them all, one by one, and demolishes all those arguments, and reduces them to -basically- one attitude: "The point is not that atheists do more evil than others, but rather that atheism provides a hiding place for those who do not want to acknowledge and repent of their sins."

The author is not only clever in anticipating all types of negative arguments that atheist and agnostic scientists have come up with through history, but he even goes on the attack with elegance and shrewdness, like this phrase: "Where is atheism when bad things happen?".

Here's another knock-out punch on atheism. Using atheism's 3 biggest excuses for attacking Christianity, he drives them back home with marvelous effect: Science? Heard what the Nazis did in the name of science? reason? Well, look at what Marx wanted to do with "unreasonable" people; progress? did both Nazis and Communists say that their religious and bourgeois opponents, reactionaries, were retarding the forward march of society, and therefore should be eliminated?

I quite agree with the lesson given in this book. Atheists -scientists or not- do not base their opposition to Christianity on reason at all, they are angered because they KNOW IT IS TRUE, and DON'T LIKE IT. As the author says, why so much fuss if God does not exist for you?

I specially recommend this book to so-called students of public education. This is their chance to learn a lot in just one book.

"Es cierto que el Romano es libre de hacer todo lo que quiera. Pero también lo es que tiene que soportar las consecuencias de sus actos. No importa que se haya equivocado, que le hayan engañado o incluso forzado: un hombre no se deja forzar: etiamsi coactus, attamen voluit. Es libre; pero si distraído, imprudente o atontado, prometió pagar una determinada cantidad y no puede pagarla, se convierte en esclavo de su acreedor."

Rudolph von Ihering

“Slavery, protection, and monopoly find defenders, not only in those who profit by them, but in those who suffer by them.”

On the true nature of the Castro Revolution in Cuba: "The revolution was a cover for committing atrocities without the slightest vestige of guilt ... we were young and irresponsible. We were pirates. We formed our own caste ... we belonged to and believed in nothing -no religion, no flag, no morality or principle. It's fortunate we didn't win, because if we had, we would have drowned the continent in barbarism."

Jorge Masetti -In the Pirate's Den

La anarquía, es decir, la ausencia de fuerza estatal, no es una forma de Estado, y cualquiera que acabe con ella por el medio que sea, el usurpador nacional o el conquistador extranjero, rinde un servicio a la sociedad. Es un salvador, un bienhechor, porque la forma más insoportable de Estado es la ausencia de Estado.
