New: Atheism Unraveled!

Atheists can never fully prove that God doesn’t exist. This book
is for those who are seeking proofs for the existence of God.
These proofs are numerous and obvious. Different concepts
and ideas from philosophy and science, as well as hard-proof
experience, show that God exists. This book also discusses the
failings of the first atheistic political system, Communism, and it
refutes Sam Harris’s book Letter to a Christian Nation. We hope
the book will be useful to Christians who seek to increase their
knowledge of apologetics.

“Matthew Cserhati has provided a valuable tool for
Christian apologetics. While many books on
apologetics focus on theory, this book gives concrete
answers to a host of specific objections. Though it
deals with some very technical issues, it is an easy
read. I found it to be a wonderfully engaging book
and I recommend it.”

Response to senator Chambers speech in Nebraska Capitol Building, December 2015

Senator Chambers,

On December 20, 2015, you gave a 25 minute speech at the beginning of the Reason this Season display in the Nebraska Capitol Building. This speech was so filled with mischaracterization and lies against Christians that someone must give a proper response to it, especially since you claim to be knowledgeable of the religion that you attacked and the over one billion people you maligned who claim to be Christian. It is profound and remarkable that you hardly said anything in support of reason and rationalism, but rather attacked the Christian religion and Christians in general during your speech. It appears that you really are not an atheist or a freethinker, but rather an anti-Christian. It seems then, that atheism offers so little that it is almost entirely exhausted by criticizing theistic religions.

Christians cannot and will not keep their religion within the confines of their own homes. To force them to do so would be the same as making them deny their faith. The state cannot define a person’s faith for him. Proselytization should be allowed, since it is a part of a person’s religion. Christians aren’t forcing others to accept their beliefs. In the Gospel of Luke, chapter 9, verses 52-56 we read about how Jesus rebukes His disciples for asking Him to destroy a village of unbelieving people who rejected their message.

I suggest that in similar public appearances you dress more formally. Even the poor in Victorian England strived to be respectable, and cleanly, and made an effort to have at least one set of nice clothes that they could wear to more formal gatherings.

You also managed to get basic facts wrong, and should have known better, since you claimed to have researched the things he was talking about. You claim that that the “white-oriented” people just looked on as Jesus Christ suffered on His way to Golgotha, while He was carrying His cross. Jesus was crucified by the Pharisees because He claimed to be the Son of God, not because of His skin color. Jesus was also a rabbi just like the Pharisees. You even got basic anthropology wrong, because you should know that people in the Middle East aren’t exactly of white complexion. It is also highly questionable as to where you got the idea that Simon of Cyrene, the man who helped Jesus carry His cross was black.

It is all the more surprising that you, an African American would support evolutionary theory and claim that men came from monkeys. This is because historically according to evolutionary theories, the earliest forms of humans come from Africa (the out of Africa theory), meaning that other races would be more developed compared to black people. For example, because of evolutionary ideas about the origin of man, Ota Benga, a man from Congo was put on exhibit in the Bronx zoo as a specimen of early human evolution. I don’t think you would ever savor such an idea.

Many scientific facts contradict human evolution. For example, there are simply not enough hominid remains to bear out the idea that humans were evolving for millions of years. The fossil Lucy has been shown to be a chimpanzee. Modern humans, Neanderthals and Denisovans have also been shown to have interbred, with a large portion of their genomes in common (humans having received 5% of their genome from Denisova). Fossils exist which show both human and Neanderthal characteristics. In fact, the skull capacity of Neanderthal is larger than that of modern human.

You also ridiculed the theologians from the Middle Ages because they argued about how many angels could fit onto the head of a pin. If you would have done your homework properly, you would have known that this was only a mock-question for practicing how to debate, sort of like having schoolchildren learn the multiplication table so that they can use it later in life during their careers as adults.

However, one of your most heinous statements that you said during your speech was that Christian “preachers are the biggest liars”, and that “Christians are notorious liars”. What would Americans think if a white male politician said that African Americans, or women, or Muslims were notorious liars? They’d be branded as racist pigs and their careers would be damaged beyond repair. Psychological analysis shows that every person makes untruthful comments at least a couple dozen times a day. Therefore you cannot just single out Christians calling them liars en masse.

Your attack on the Christian Trinity is also a straw man. Christianity states that there is one God (James 2:19). But at the same time, God is three persons and one substance. You could have easily read about this in any number of theology books, or in the Nicene or Athanasian Creed. Jesus commands His disciples to baptize people in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19). One name, three persons, one Trinity. God is infinite, and as such, we cannot even attempt to grasp God, as finite creatures. Your error in attacking the Trinity is that you anthropomorphizes God, Who is not human. Jesus Christ was fully man and fully God, that is why He as a man was separated from the Father, when He cried out as to why the Father had forsaken Him. Since He was also fully God, that is why death had no power over Him when He died, but since He committed His spirit to the Father of life, that is where He went right after His death.

As an atheist, you deny the existence of God whom you have not seen with your own eyes, despite the very fact that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, one with the Father walked on this earth among men, which is all the proof that atheists demand for the existence of God. On the same note we can deny the existence of atoms since we have not [nor even cannot] seen them with our own eyes.

You also decry God justly punishing sinful people for rebelling against Him, killing babies, yet you are pro-abortion, and uphold the wholesale murder of millions of unborn babies. This is just sheer hypocrisy at its worst. If you believe that God does not exist, then ultimately there are no values, no morals, no laws, no absolute truth, and death is just a neutral factor in the grand scheme of life.

You also brought up an example of a political science assistant at Wheaton College, a Christian university. He was suspended for supposedly showing solidarity with oppressed Muslims, and that he claimed that Allah, the god of Islam was the same as the God of the Bible. You should know very well, that if somebody wishes to work at a Christian institution, he is very likely obligated to ascribe to a statement of faith. Only Roman Catholics are allowed to work within the Vatican, for example. This is only common sense and completely acceptable. If you do not believe the same thing that others do in the same church that you go to, then you are perfectly free to go elsewhere where people believe the same thing that you do? You should not attempt to define the religion of the people at Wheaton College for them. We must separate the state from the church!

It is a shame that you gave such a speech in a public place such as the Nebraska State Capitol Building, and therefore you owe a public apology to all Christians that you smeared as being liars.

I do hope that you will consider these things.

Regards,

Dr. Matthew Cserhati

Brief history of the sins of atheistic Communism in Hungary (1949-1989)

On the occasion of debating LB 975 in the Nebraska State Legislature, I would like to briefly enlighten you about the history of atheist-style Communism in Eastern Europe between 1949 and 1989. My parents fled the Communist system that was established by force in a sham election a few years after World War II in Hungary. The Communist system had already ravaged the Soviet Union with a great famine in the Ukraine, claiming the lives of 5 million people. This was due to a failed five year plan where the Communists thought that they would be able to dictate to the laws of nature. This Communist system was established in a bloody revolution in 1917, by Lenin, a man who never worked in his life but expected masses of factory workers to work instead.

The Communist system is responsible for the deaths of over 100 million people in the time span of about a single century. That is about one third of the population of the United States. Many of the victims were Chinese under Mao Tse-Tung, where they are still finding graves and remains of people who were killed during the bloody era of Communism. Even today the population of North Korea is suffering under Kim Jong-un, where in some places the population of this country are forced to eat leaves. There are hardly any cars on the streets. If you look at North Korea on a night map you can see the boundary between it and South Korea since there are no lights in North Korea at night. They perform operations using infusion fluid in beer bottles in this country.

During Communism in Hungary people could easily be exported for speaking out against the Communist government. A group of 40 Reformed Christian pastors were whisked off to Siberia just because they wrote a letter to Joseph Stalin telling him to repent from his murders. Living conditions, of course in the Gulag Archipelago were downright unbearable. One out of only every three workers in Hungary was an administrator, the efficiency of the Communist system was simply that low. People lived like slaves in that system. They mass murdered hundreds of people at Kossuth Square on October 23, 1956. Many people were detained and executed after the Revolution sadly failed. This is what my own parents fled from. People were hanged up until 1985. The Communists tortured people like how they did in the Inquisition. They forced rods of glass up the penises of men and broke them. They also made people stand in rooms full of water and when they came out, they peeled their skins off like a glove. They also forced people to stand upright for days on end in a very tight small room with spikes on the wall and a light shining in their eyes so they couldn’t sleep.

Communism is responsible for the massive deterioration that happened in Eastern Europe for 40 years. In Romania for example they still were going around in horse driven carts in the middle of the 1990’s. 20 years ago half of all Hungarians didn’t even have a car, even today all over the country there are dilapidated, crumbling buildings that they weren’t able to renovate after 1990, the fall of Communism. My grandfather knew 12 Finno-Ugric languages, he was a professor of linguistics. He gave presentations in Ann Arbor during Communism. When he went back the Communist secret service harassed him so much it helped him towards an early death.

 

These are the sins of Communism which have not yet been resolved, not even today.

 

Atheists declare that simple molecules such as amino acids are forms of early life. Yet they fail to recognize that a fetus is a living human being with full rights and therefore deserves to be protected. Yet a Holocaust of 50 million innocent children, including many black babies has occurred ever since Roe vs Wade in 1973. This is more than 10 times the number of soldiers who died during America’s wars. This means that it is 10 times more dangerous to be in the womb than out on the battlefield.

 

I do hope you get the time to read the free book I sent you by Richard Wurmbrand, Tortured for Christ. He suffered for 14 years in Communist prisons in Romania. Among other things they slit his throat, starved him, and almost killed him several times juts because he believed in Jesus Christ.

 

“Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.” Matthew 7:5
