Peter Hitchens looks suicidal on the most moronic episode of BBC Big Questions yet, entitled “Can a person be Christian without believing in God”.
Hopefully, it is obvious to the dear readers why such a question is inherently ridiculous let alone warranting an 18 minute debate. However, it gets worse. Anglican pastor David Jennings, when asked whether he believes in God, replied “I have an experience of God, but I’m hesitant to define what that means” and “I find belief in God very difficult” and that “The afterlife is a fantasy”. If it were not for the seriousness of these remarks, this would be laughable.
When we look at the state of the world, it isn’t hard to see how we got into this mess when even members of the Christian canon are atheists. I am, of course, not a Christian but this clearly says a great deal for the state of the world and also the degradation of our intellectual capabilities which went quickly down the drain following the Renaissance and French revolution, which promoted atheistic ideals that lead to the propagation of egalitarianism and hedonism.
This was predicted by Hare Krishna in the third millenia BC, when he spoke of the Kali Yuga, meaning “age of Kali (the devil)” In the Srimid Bhagavatam, it is written:
“At the end of Kali-yuga, when there exist no topics on the subject of God, even at the residences of so-called saints and respectable gentlemen of the three higher varnas and when nothing is known of the techniques of sacrifice, even by word, at that time the Lord will appear as the supreme chastiser.”
The rest of the rabble, apart from Hitchens, has been picked up from a ragtag of pseudo-intellectual circles, include a member of the “Nontheist Society”, a professor of Religous Studies and a lesbian Quaker in a pork pie hat.
We are rapidly encroaching upon a precipice over which the last remnants of civilized society (in its original sense) and ancient knowledge will be unrecoverable to us. As Hare Krishna told us, in the age over which the devil holds sway even these supposedlu pious people are turned wicked, and it is a long wait until the end of the age of Kali when the Lord is said to return.
