The Absurdity Of Claiming To Be An Atheist

By David J. Stewart | January 2016

I have a classic book in front of me published in the year 1868, titled “GOD IN HISTORY and GOD IN SCIENCE,” authored by London Pastor John Cumming (1807-1881).[1] May I say kindly, there's no such thing as an atheist! Some of the world's wealthiest celebrities have the stench of Hell on them, which is where they are all going, blaspheming the very God Who is kind to them. Luke 6:35b, “...for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.”

Legendary singer Billy Joel is a professed atheist...

“I gradually decided that just because I didn't have or couldn't find the ultimate answer didn't mean I was going to buy the religious fairytale. As an atheist you have to rationalize things.” —Billy Joel

On page 139 of his book, “GOD IN HISTORY and GOD IN SCIENCE,” Pastor John Cumming makes a brilliant observation concerning professed atheists...

Atheism is folly as much as wickedness. But suffer me, before I show this, to say, that it is absolutely impossible that any man can be an atheist, in the strict sense of that word. All that any can say is this: “No spot that I have searched does reveal a God; every organization I have examined does not show traces of wisdom, goodness, and design:” but that individual cannot say; “There is no God;” because he cannot say, “I have soared to the farthest star, I have descended to the deepest mines, I have swept all space, and searched all time, and in the realms of infinite space I have not detected any traces of a God.” In other words, to be able to say, “There is no God,” you must yourself assume to be God, which is a reductio ad absurdum, an utter and a complete absurdity.

SOURCE: “GOD IN HISTORY and GOD IN SCIENCE,” p. 139; by Rev. John Cumming, D.D.; New York: Published by Carlton & Lanahan; 200 Mulberry-Street; 1868.

What a brilliant observation. How can any man claim to be an atheist unless he has traveled to the farthest place in the universe? The nearest star to the earth (after our own sun) is Alpha Centauri, which is 4.37 light-years away (28,200,000,000,000 miles away!). This is just one star, being the closest to earth besides our own sun, which is 93,000,000,000 miles away. My friend, the Hubble Space Telescope has discovered that there are at least 200,000,000,000 galaxies in the universe. And each of those galaxies contains BILLIONS of stars! It is anticipated that when the James Webb Telescope is launched in 2018 from NASA, that it will discover over ONE TRILLION GALAXIES!!!

The Word of God teaches that God made the stars. I love how Genesis 1:16 is written... “HE MADE THE STARS ALSO.” It's like the Bible is saying, “Oh, by the way, God also made all the stars!” Genesis 1:16, “And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.” God is amazing, Who knows the exact number of stars that He created, and he calls them each by their own name. Amen! Psalms 147:4, “He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.” I have just briefly discussed the stars. The world that exists under a microscope is even more amazing, complex and a mystery to mankind. How can anyone reasonably claim to be an atheist when man hasn't even discovered what's in 90% of the earth's oceans? Pastor John Cumming is so right... For anyone to say, “There is no God!,” you must yourself assume to be God! No human being has traveled to the ends of the universe. In fact, no human being has ever even left the Milky Way Solar System. Psalms 145:3, “Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.”

John Cumming was a Scottish minister who was well-known for his anti-Catholic writings and preaching. Amen for that! One of the biggest evidences of apostasy in the United States today is that hardly any professed Christians, evangelicals and clergy criticize the damned Roman Catholic religion. Catholicism teaches sacramental salvation, which is a manmade teaching that goes totally contrary to the inspired Words of God in the Bible. Roman and Russian Orthodox Catholicism are of the Devil. The pope is not the vicar of Heaven, but of Hell. Mary was born by normal conception, did not remain a virgin, and died a sinner's death like all human beings. Only Jesus Christ was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life. Thank God that Pastor John Cumming exposed the Catholic church for what it is, of the Devil.

Wicked Atheist Men Place God On Trial

Hollywood pervert producer, Woody Allen, says...

“If God exists, I hope he has a good excuse! —Producer Woody Allen

Hollywood reprobate actor, Robert De Niro, who stars in the 2016 filthy movie, “DIRTY GRANDPA,” says...

“If there is a God he has a lot to answer for.” SOURCE: Robert De Niro - Biography - IMDb

What a hypocrite! De Niro says that God has a lot to answer for? No, it is Mr. De Niro who has a lot to answer for. Here's the vile, disgusting and offensive content of De Niro's recent work of darkness, “DIRTY GRANDPA”...


- Brief non-graphic violence.
- Infrequent portrayals of hand-to hand violence with little blood and some detail.
- Depictions of fighting and electrocution.

Sexual Content:
- Frequent use of crude and descriptive sexual language and gestures.
- Sexual references and innuendo.
- Infrequent portrayals of sexual activity, with buttock nudity and a little detail.
- Nudity in a brief sexual situation.
- Breast and male frontal nudity in a non-sexual context.
- Full frontal nudity.
- Embracing and kissing.
- Fondling.
- Brief simulated sexual activity.
- Implied sexual activity.
- Frequent crude and offensive scenes.

Approximately 270 instances of coarse language, including:
- Pervasive use of the sexual expletive, many in a sexual context.
- Frequent use of scatological slang.
- Infrequent use of vulgar expressions.
- Use of sexual, racial, and developmental slurs.

Alcohol / Drug Use:
- Two scenes of drug use involving marijuana and/ cocaine.
- Portrayals of alcohol and illegal substance use, sometimes to excess.
- Tobacco use.


It is not God Who has a lot to answer for Mr. De Niro, it is us sinful human beings!!! Ecclesiastes 12:14, “For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.” Romans 14:12, “So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” Hebrews 4:13, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.”

I don't condemn any man, for I am the biggest sinner that I know. Thankfully, my sins have been washed away by the blood of Jesus Christ, when I trusted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior at age 13, receiving His sacrifice on the cross for my sins, and believing that He resurrected from the dead three days later for my justification. I feel sorry for Woody Allen and Robert De Niro, who openly reject Jesus Christ and profess to be atheists. In effect, they have appointed themselves to be their own God.

We are all so very blessed by God. God gave us tastebuds to enjoy food, and a wondrous variety of delicious delicacies from which to choose. God gave us our eyes to see, and made the beautiful sunsets and flowers to behold. God gave us our ears to hear, and the lovely music to enjoy. God gives us our breath. Like King Belshazzar, Robert De Niro does not glorify the God in whose hand his breath is. Daniel 5:22-23, “And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart, though thou knewest all this; But hast lifted up thyself against the LORD of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy lords, thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them; and thou hast praised the gods of silver, and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know: and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified.” Every way of a man's life is only possible because of God's blessings and power. If it weren't for our omnipotent God, our human heart could not pump blood 100,000 times each and every day of our life!!! How dare De Niro arrogantly say that if there is a God, He has a lot of explaining to do. God owes De Niro NOTHING!

Jesus called the two men who walked with Him on the road to Emmaus, “FOOLS,” because they were SLOW TO BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD. Luke 24:25, “Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken.” Are you a fool? Only a fool questions the existence of God in view of this incredible world around us. It is Satan and wicked men who ruin the world, causing poverty and war, and not God. The Lord is good to all! Psalms 145:9, “The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.”

Here's some quotes by famous atheists. Again, some of the world's wealthiest celebrities have the stench of Hell on them, which is where they are going, blaspheming the very God Who is kind to them. Luke 6:35b, “for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.” You'll have to look long and hard to find an atheist farmer who spends long days toiling in the field; but amongst the spoils and splendors of the millionaires of ungodly Hollywood, atheists are dime-a-dozen!

Here are some quotes from very unwise men...

“By simple common sense I don't believe in God, in none.” —Actor Charlie Chaplin

“I have NEVER seen the slightest scientific proof of the religious theories of Heaven and Hell, of future life for individuals, or of a personal God.” —Inventor Thomas Edison

“My belief system is that when this is over, you don't look down from Heaven and wait for your loved ones to join you... your molecules continue and in due time become something else.” —Actor William Shatner

“Even though I don't personally believe in the Lord, I try to behave as though He was watching.” —Actor Christopher Reeve

“We are each free to believe what we want and it is my view that the simplest explanation is there is no God. No one created the universe and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization. There is probably no heaven, and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe, and for that, I am extremely grateful.” —Physicist Stephen Hawking, a quote from a 2011 Discover Channel episode titled, “CURIOSITY” (S01 E01); “Stephen Hawking: There is no God. There is no Fate.”

“All thinking men are atheist.” —Author Ernest Hemingway

“And that's what I anticipate death will be: a totally unconscious void in which you float through eternity with no particular consciousness of anything.” —Twilight Zone producer, Rod Serling (1924-1975)

We'll soon find out who was right! If the Bible is true (and I believe it certainly is 100%), then all Christ-rejecting atheists will go to Hell. Sadly, Rod Serling (an atheist who produced The Twilight Zone series) is now burning in the torments and fires of Hell beneath. So also is Charlie Chaplin (atheist), Leonard Nimoy (Judaism), David “Bowie” Jones (Buddhist), Gene Roddenberry (atheist), and Steve Jobs (Buddhist). For any person to deny the deity of Jesus Christ effectively makes him or her an atheist, because Jesus is almighty God (Matthew 1:23; John 1:1-3,14; John 10:33; John 14:1; Revelation 1:8 - All references only to trustworthy King James Bible).

Communism is Synonymous With Atheism

Communism is just the opposite of Christianity. It is the inevitable conclusion when a nation becomes Godless. Communism is caused by a vacuum created when we lose our faith in God. We don't need state support, if we have God-support. As we come away from our faith in God, then we turn and build ourselves a society, to offer us the same security that we used to get from God. So a person who has faith in God is completely opposite to Communism. A person who loses his faith, or has no faith in God, must of necessity be Communistic for his security. Democracy has never worked. Democracy will never work, and can never work, unless the religion of Jesus Christ is believed and honored. Godless nations must be Communistic. There is no other way.

Communism is nothing but humanism taken to its finality! Today's liberal universities teach that society is more important than the individual. This is unscriptural. In the Bible, Jesus left the 99 secure sheep to go seek that one lost sheep. America has been destroyed by prosperity. Humanism has corrupted our nation's ideals. The individual is no longer of any worth, which is why murderous abortion has been legal since 1973. It would be a wonderful blessing if we could have another Great Depression today, to restore character in America. We live in a spoiled rotten TV generation, where an estimated 40% of our food in the United States goes into the garbage.

Tragically, because of our nation's decadence, wastefulness, ingratitude, indifference and Godlessness—crime and moral wickedness have flourished exponentially over the past 65 years since the television invaded U.S. homes. In 1946 only 6,000 American households owned a television, which soared to 22,000,000 TV sets by 1952. Consequently, prosperity has ruined the character of our citizens. It is more important that we be free than full. We have more abundance and blessings than ever in America today, yet we are about to go into financial, economic, political and social slavery.

What is Communism? It is building ourselves a union of people that come together to solve their own problems through government instead of faith in God. Communism means the government becomes our God. As of 2016, over 100 million Americans are receiving some type of government financial assistance. Isn't God supposed to provide our needs in Christ Jesus?

The Federal Reserve banking system is Communist, allowing the government to have Godlike power over our lives. One of the biggest problems in America over the past century has been the fraudulent Federal Reserve (or Fractional Reserve) banking system, which in 1913 allowed the banksters to print and lend out 10 times the amount of gold in reserve. Since the U.S. dollar was no longer linked directly to its equal value in grains of gold or silver, it became an arbitrary value system, that could easily be manipulated simply by controlling the amount of money put into circulation. By simply printing more money, the crooked banksters could cause inflation. More money in circulation drives down the value of a dollar (through the principle of supply and demand), which consequently forces businesses to raise prices to compensate for lost value in the U.S. dollar.

So by the banks simply printing more money into circulation, the end result is that a certain percentage of U.S. citizens cannot afford to pay their mortgages, and lose their homes. As you can see, the power acquired through the Fractional Reserve banking system gives the banks Godlike power to control people's lives. This fraudulent system would not exist today, which has destroyed countless millions of families and lives, if it were not for the betrayal of the American people by President Woodrow Wilson and thousands of other wicked conspirators within our own U.S. government. Evil can only triumph when good men remain idle and do nothing. Thankfully, God will punish these wicked evildoers to the fullest degree (Isaiah 13:11; Proverbs 24:12; Matthew 12:36; Matthew 7:1-5; 1st Thessalonians 4:6; Ecclesiastes 12:14). Isaiah 13:11, “And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.” All the millionaire Wall Street scum CEO's with their arrogant faces won't be smirking when the fires of Hell engulf them forever!!!

As a pastor loses his faith, he becomes dependent upon a society. As a Christian loses his faith, he becomes dependent upon a society. As a church loses its faith, it becomes dependent upon a society. As a nation loses her faith in God, she has to start joining together with other nations, dependent upon man instead of God. As our nation loses faith in almighty God and His Word, to that same degree we are seeing a thug police state rise up around us.

U.S. President John Adams (1735-1826) said 200 years ago...

“We have not government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” —U.S. President John Adams

As our nation descends into a moral cesspool of iniquity, the U.S. Constitution is unable to govern the insanity of today's crazy society!!! ...

The U.S. Constitution Is Over 95% Destroyed

THE TRUMPET magazine | August 2011

Christianity today has become an empty ritual. What does America’s Christianity do to stop us from flooding the world with family-destroying pornography? No other nation even comes close to what we produce!

What does that say about our religion and private morality? Anybody who understands the Bible knows how it condemns such sick, moral depravity!

New York was the sixth state to approve homosexual “marriage.” Marriage is a type of the firstfruits marrying Jesus Christ (Revelation 19:7). That is the beginning of all mankind being led into the Family of God forever. That is also the gospel, the good news of the coming Family or Kingdom of God.

Those who promote homosexual “marriage” try to redefine what marriage and family are. IT IS AN ABOMINABLE ATTEMPT TO DESTROY THE HEART OF THE BIBLICAL MESSAGE OF GOOD NEWS FOR ALL MANKIND! (Request our free booklets Why Marriage! Soon Obsolete? and The God Family Vision for more information.)

The main cause of homosexuality is the breakdown of the family. Instead of changing broken families, we approve of homosexual “marriages” and add to our heinous sins.

Where are the Christian leaders today who will even label homosexuality a sin? The Bible is Jesus Christ in print. A true Christian is one who follows Christ. The Bible labels homosexuality an abomination.

Where are our leaders who will speak out against family breakdown, pornography, U.S. drug usage and the crime it causes? Our drug addiction has turned Mexico into a war zone.

The Constitution won’t work for such biblically immoral people! Who is willing to hear what our own Founding Fathers prophesied? All political parties are guilty of rejecting their warning. ...

In Ben Franklin's day, he said that “Lighthouses are more helpful than churches.” America wasn't always blessed to have great churches. Praise God for the rise of fundamental Bible-believing churches, which swept across America during the 20th century!!! Unfortunately, although the Independent Fundamentalist Baptist Church movement was still growing strong by leaps-and-bounds during the 1970's, it has virtually died out today in 2016. It's almost impossible to find churches today who truly stand for old-fashioned Biblical Christianity anymore. Very few churches operate a Bus Ministry to reach the community these days. Very few churches expose the sinister New World Order, or preach against the blatant injustices and crimes of government. ROMANS 13 (by Pastor Chuck Baldwin). It's hard to find a church today that goes door-to-door soul-winning, as they did in the Bible (Acts 20:20). The pulpit is responsible for the mess in America today! We need a whole new breed of Christians and preachers!!!

The Cruel Absurdity Of Atheism And Communism

It is absurd for anyone to claim to be an atheist, when no man has ever left our solar system. It is absurd for anyone to claim to be an atheist, when no man has ever traveled through all time and space. It is absurd for anyone to claim to be an atheist, when no man has ever successfully explained the origin of the universe without God. And it is equally as absurd for anyone to think that a government and society devoid of faith in God can produce happy, thriving, prosperous, law-abiding citizens. Just as Americans are dwindling in their faith in the holy God of the inspired Bible, so also are they dwindling in prosperity. Every nation in history that obeyed God's Word achieved some degree of prosperity and happiness; whereas atheist Communist societies, like China under Mao, and Russia under Stalin, afflicted and abused its people miserably (and untold tens-of-millions died a cruel death).

“Believing everybody is dangerous, but believing nobody is more dangerous.” —U.S. President Abraham Lincoln

Atheism and Communism have overtaken America! Although most people would deny being an atheist, they've lost their faith in God and are looking to the government to take care of them. Churches are being persecuted for going door-to-door soul-winning, being threatened by police with arrest and imprisonment. This is the work of the Devil. Jesus foretold that the time would come when the world will kill Christians, thinking they're doing God a favor. John 16:2, “They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.” These times have already come during the early Roman Empire, the inquisition, the Dark Ages, and are happening in numerous parts of the world today. As the New World Order develops, Christians will be martyred for their faith. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
