This was a conversation between and atheist named “Corey” and myself on YouTube.
In the realm of what we know to be real (our own lives until we die) that sacrifice doesn’t claim to do squat right? So all the claims that our sins are washed away don’t take affect until we die correct? Wow thanks lord god for trying to make us believe so seriously unbelievable stuff… If anything (if you are right about jesus) when I die he is going to be like “you secular people are among the brightest, I have deep respect for you because how could I expect intelligent people such as yourself to believe that crazy shit. You may enter the magical kingdom!”
Understanding will make the difference. That is why God is wise and Man is foolish – he always thinks he is more intelligent than the Creator because of his tiny knowledge, which does not span beyond his environment.
Sin brought death into the world. Death means the absence of God or detachment from God. “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.” [Leviticus 17:11] The perfect life is in God; God’s life cannot suffer or experience death because God cannot sin. The blood of animals was not perfect to become a substitute or give life back to the dying Man. So, God decided to use His own ENDLESS life so as to give life back to Man. It is akin to resuscitation. God gave life back to Man in order to destroy death in him.
So, are atheists more intelligent? No, atheists are not smarter or more intelligent, they just make their brains think backwardly when it should be advancing. I would like to conclude with a tweeted quote from Trevor Noah:
For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.” [Leviticus 17:11]
