Here we present another commentary from someone who has heard certain of my comments, found them to be antithetical to his understanding of The Truth, and resolved to set me straight.
I do not need to respond to an authority who does not know how to spell “Atheism.”
Doesn’t he know the rule of spelling, “i before e except after c, or in Atheism?”
One might wonder why this fellow needs to spend so much life space putting together incorrect, hostile, misleading, and ill informed facts and conclusions rather than just accepting his truth that he is going to Heaven and that I am going to Hell and be done with it.
Readers are invited to respond in the comments section herein.

Afternoon Mr. Kagin:
In a recent televised special, I listened to the arguments for and against God, of which you were a member of the panel.
After listening to numerous Univ. discussions over the years, regarding this and other topics in respect to creation Vs evolution, the same question comes to mind.
In claiming to be an athesist, you have denied the existence of God as Creator, is this not correct?
If it is, why waste so much time arguing over who is or is not correct, if there is no God? Or do you sub-consciously believe their is a God, but you refuse to be accountable to anyone other than yourself?
Even Lucifer had knowledge of God, but he decided to exalt himself above God.( At least he was honest with himself )
Is that not what the Humanist is attempting to do?
• noun the belief that God does not exist.
— DERIVATIVES atheist noun atheistic adjective atheistical adjective.
— ORIGIN from Greek a- ‘without’ + theos ‘god’.
• noun 1 a rationalistic system of thought attaching prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters. 2 a Renaissance cultural movement which turned away from medieval scholasticism and revived interest in ancient Greek and Roman thought.
— DERIVATIVES humanist noun & adjective humanistic adjective.
Please notice the focus on human rather than divine. When the divine is ignored, and the human has elevated himself above the divine, he/she has declared himself/herself to be a god or goddess. Is this not what Lucifer did? It most certainly is.
Just a couple of quotes in closing:
“My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble minds. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.” Albert Einstein (Nobel prize for Physics in 1921). Calaprice, Alice: The Quotable Einstein (Princeton University Press, Princeton, New Jersey, 1996).
“Every time I write a paper on the origin of life, I determine I will never write another one, because there is too much speculation running after too few facts.” Francis Crick, [Crick received a Nobel Prize for discovering the structure of DNA.] Life Itself, Its Origin and Nature (1981), p. 88.
Just a few of many quotes from prominent individuals regarding Creation…
