In case you missed the launch of Atheist TV last night, the introduction video is below. I would pay special attention to the speech given by American Atheists’ founder Madalyn Murray O’Hair at the group’s 1990 convention, beginning at the 5:45 mark. Nothing she says is unfamiliar to those of us who read books and visit websites about atheism — but 25 years ago, you just didn’t hear those thoughts said aloud. It’s amazing how far that message has spread in such a short time.
And, of course, Creationist Ken Ham already has a review of the channel up on his site. (I’m sure he watched every minute of the launch.)
It is incredible that atheists spend so much time, effort, and money arguing against Someone that they don’t even believe exists! Where are all their books, websites, and magazines that argue against the mythical Easter Bunny? This is because they do know God exists but they are suppressing the truth in unrighteousness…
Or maybe they focus on God because it convinces some people that the universe is only thousands of years old. Or that dinosaurs and humans lived at the same time. Or that the Bible should be taken literally.
The Easter Bunny isn’t ruining science literacy in this country.
Ham, whose Answers in Genesis ministry corrupts young minds on a regular basis, is especially disturbed about how this channel might reach children:
Sadly, this new TV channel is not just targeting adults with a hopeless message of godlessness, but they are also trying to indoctrinate children into an atheistic worldview. Isn’t it bad enough that humanistic thinking has lead to over 55 million deaths of aborted children in the U.S. alone, and now the atheistic humanists want to continue their attacks to poison and destroy the minds children who have survived the abortion holocaust. You see, we live in a world that is fiercely battling for the hearts and minds of our kids. And yet, it is a world where those who teach their kids the truth of God’s Word are accused of child abuse!
If you had “Holocaust” and “child abuse” and “abortion” on your Christian-Reaction-to-Atheist-TV Bingo Card, you may cross them off now.
