Strong evidence that everything was created by an intelligent designer: God.

The evidence of God is everywhere;  you just don't believe it.  Every effect has to have a cause.  Hence a complex universe had to have a cause who we can call an intelligent designer or God.

Every statement you made there requires evidence or reasoning. You keep making these statements, but every time I show you how your "evidence" or logic is flawed or actually just assumptions/guessing you run away for a few days and come back with the same claim to "evidence".

I was even willing to go down the road of spiritual evidence, but you can't even provide how this is verified, meaning it can be "made up". 

I asked this question before, how does an individual verify that a God exists outside of pure assumptions or guessing?

Do you think communism tolerates Buddhism?

Are there other ideologies that are similarly based?  Maybe secular humanism?  Is that satanic as well?

As I said Communism in general opposes any religion that contradicts Communist ideology and worship of the Communist system.  I think there have been serious conflicts between Tibet and Communist China.  I don't think they approve of Buddhism.

Yes, there are many ideologies including religious systems that claim to have the answers to life.  Anything that is contrary to the Almighty God who created us and the universe would of course fall into that category.  Satan is largely in control of this world and everything that works with that is working in rebellion to the one true Almighty God. 

But a little more about Marxism. 

quote

Today one third of the world is Marxist. Marxism in one form or another is embraced by many in Capitalist countries, too. There are even Christians, yes, and clergymen, some of high standing, who are sure that while Jesus might have had the right answers about how to get to heaven, Marx had the right answers about how to help the hungry, destitute, and oppressed on earth.

“Marx, it is said, was deeply humane. He was dominated by one idea: how to help the exploited masses. What impoverishes them, he maintained, is capitalism. Once this rotten system is overthrown, after a transitional period of dictatorship of the proletariat, a society will emerge in which everyone will work according to his abilities in factories and farms belonging to the collective, and will be rewarded according to his needs. There will be… no wars, no revolutions, only an everlasting, universal brotherhood…. [p.5]

“Marx writes: “The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of man is a requisite for their real happiness. The call to abandon their illusions about their conditions is a call to abandon a condition which requires illusion….”[p.6]

“Marx was anti-religious because religion obstructs the fulfillment of the Communist ideal which he considers the only answer to the world’s problems.”[p 6]   unquote   For more on this go to:

But we could also say the complexity of the universe and the fact it exists also is strong evidence of the fact of an intelligent designer we call God.

Can I assert this same thing as evidence for no god(s) with the same confidence and with the same level of evidence?

The complex universe is strong evidence for no creator of the universe as it makes absolutely no sense for a god to create all this dead space that we humans can’t survive in.  Why would a creator create 99.9999999% of the universe hostile to his special creation (humans)? 

I contend that my argument for no creator, using the same evidence as you use, is every bit as logical as your argument for a creator’s existence.

Ok, I have stated what I believe and I don't see any point in further debate at this point as you are obviously just trying to be contrary now.  Been there and done that.  It's a waste of time.

Fair enough.  Thanks for the (brief) discussion on evidence for a creator, and evidence for not a creator (which can be identical).  

Hopefully, we can continue our discussion on Satan?

This tells a bit more about how Karl Marx was a Satanist and what it's ramifications are for the world today.

quote

Marx had loved the words of Mephistopheles in Faust, “Everything in existence is worth being destroyed.” Everything — including the proletariat and the comrades. Marx quoted these words…. Stalin acted on them and destroyed even his own family. [p.13]

The Satanist sect is not materialistic. It believes in eternal life. Oulanem, the person for whom Marx speaks, does not contest eternal life. He asserts it, but as a life of hate magnified to its extreme. It is worth noting that eternity for the devils means ‘torment.” Thus Jesus was reproached by the demons: “Art you come hither to torment us before our time?” (Matthew 8:29)….

[Marx’] correspondence with his father testifies to his squandering great sums of money on pleasures and his constant quarreling with parental authority about this and other matters. Then he might have fallen in with the tenets of the highly secret Satanist church and received the rites of initiation. Satan, whom his worshippers see in their hallucinatory orgies, speaks through them. Thus Marx is only Satan’s mouthpiece when he utters in his poem Invocation of One in Despair the words, “I wish to avenge myself against the One who rules above.”

Listen to the end of Oulanem:

If there is a Something which devours,
I’ll leap within it, though I bring the world to ruins— The world which bulks between me and the abyss
I will smash to pieces with my enduring curses….

In Oulanem Marx does what the devil does: he consigns the entire human race to damnation. Oulanem is probably the only drama in the world in which all the characters are aware of their own corruption, which they flaunt and celebrate with conviction. In this drama there is no black and white… All are satanic, corrupt, and doomed.[p.15]

When he wrote these things, Marx… was eighteen. His life’s program had already been established. There was no word about serving mankind, the proletariat, or socialism. He wished to bring the world to ruin. He wished to build for himself a throne whose bulwark should be human shudder.[p.16].  source 

And he did.

This explains a bit more of what it means for those living under Communist systems today.

I can grant, for sake of argument, that Marx was a Satanist.  But I would like to determine who else, with more relevance to today’s society, is also in league with Satan.  Hopefully that will move the discussion along?

Are secular humanists in league with Satan too?  Cuz they seem nice.

Is Satan sneaky enough to get secular humanists on his side without them even knowing?

While this will not answer your question directly in a yes or no manner, it will shed some light on the subject.

quote

Theologically, Secular Humanists are atheists. Humanist Paul Kurtz, publisher of Prometheus Books and editor of Free Inquiry magazine, says that,

“Humanism cannot in any fair sense of the word apply to one who still believes in God as the source and creator of the universe.”[5]

Corliss Lamont agrees, saying,

“Humanism contends that instead of the gods creating the cosmos, the cosmos, in the individualized form of human beings giving rein to their imagination, created the gods.”[6]

Philosophically, Secular Humanists are naturalists. That is, they believe that nature is all that exists—the material world is all that exists. There is no God, no spiritual dimension, no afterlife. Carl Sagan said it best in the introduction to his Cosmos series: “The universe is all that is or ever was or ever will be.”[7] Roy Wood Sellars concurs.

“Humanism is naturalistic,” he says, “and rejects the supernaturalistic stance with its postulated Creator-God and cosmic Ruler.”[8]

Secular Humanist beliefs in the area of biology are closely tied to both their atheistic theology and their naturalist philosophy. If there is no supernatural, then life, including human life, must be the result of a purely natural phenomenon. Hence, Secular Humanists must believe in evolution. Julian Huxley, for example, insists that “man … his body, his mind and his soul were not supernaturally created but are all products of evolution.”[9] Sagan, Lamont, Sellars, Kurtz—all Secular Humanists are in agreement on this.

Atheism leads most Secular Humanists to adopt ethical relativism—the belief that no absolute moral code exists, and therefore man must adjust his ethical standards in each situation according to his own judgment.[10] If God does not exist, then He cannot establish an absolute moral code. Humanist Max Hocutt says that human beings “may, and do, make up their own rules… Morality is not discovered; it is made.”[11]

A religious worldview based on atheism, naturalism, evolution, and ethical relativism

Secular Humanism, then, can be defined as a religious worldview based on atheism, naturalism, evolution, and ethical relativism. But this definition is merely the tip of the iceberg. A more complete discussion of the Secular Humanist worldview can be found in David Noebel’s Understanding the Times, which discusses (in detail) humanism’s approach to each of ten disciplines: theology, philosophy, ethics, biology, psychology, sociology, law, politics, economics and history.

You’re right….  It didn’t answer the question.  I didn’t ask what some Christian apologist says about secular humanism.  Nor am I interested in what this random person thinks, otherwise, I would seek him out and ask them directly.

What do you think?

Also, why couldn’t a humanist also believe in a god?

Obviously if you can answer so quickly, you didn't bother reading anything I posted.  So I will post this from the link I gave above:    The real question is who are you following,  God or Satan?

quote

The Bible teaches in our text verse that Satan is the god of this world, but the true and living God owns the earth and the fullness thereof (1st Corinthians 10:26). The Devil is only the god of the world's evil political, religious and control system. As such, Satan needs a way to communicate his evil desires with those evil men and women who are willing servants. Satan controls his willing servants through spiritual mediums such as Aleister Crowley, Helen Blavatsky and other occultists. Alex Jones snuck into Bohemian Grove in the year 2000 and recorded the dark highpriest summonsing Satan to “grant us thy counsel.” Evil men seek Satan's counsel, and they receive it through witchcraft and satanism.

And then Satan deceives many people by imitating Christ's ministers. Most of the people who are following the Devil think they are doing the right thing. Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventists and Roman Catholics are all satanic religious cults, but sincerely think that they are doing the right thing. This is true of nearly all their adherents, but don't be fooled, the top leaders of these evil organizations are sold out to Freemasonry and Satan. They are fully aware of Satan's control over these organizations, which is why they are all top level Freemasons, Luciferian worshippers.

Charles Taze Russell (founder of the Jehovah's Witnesses) and Joseph Smith (founder of the Mormons) were both 33rd degree Freemasons. So also was Oral Roberts, Ron Hubbard and many others. By taking control over a small handful of top positions of power in every field of industry, education, entertainment, government, corporate and religious influence, occult members are able to control the world for Satan. SIGNS OF SATAN!

The sinister global elite have all the money and own all the television networks, Hollywood studios, mainstream news outlets, and the music and video game industries. Remember, Satan is the god of this world (2nd Corinthians 4:4), and as such he needs a way to control the world. This is accomplished by a pyramid of power, a chain of command flowing from the tiny elite top level down to the widespread pawns on the bottom. Please read, The Great Pyramid.  unquote

"What do I think?"  Well, I think the definition of secular humanism mean the followers of it do not believe in the Almighty God of the Bible.   But there may be exceptions. The Bible says the devils believe in God and tremble.  So belief in a god in an of itself does not make a person a Christian or does not mean he is not a servant of Satan.  If the devils can believe in God and still be opposed to God, then humans could do the same thing.  There may be humanists who believe in some sort of god, but the correct definition of secular humanism means one who is an atheistic and believes human reasoning is the highest form of morality.  So while it is possible a humanist could believe in god, it does not make him on the right side of god.

If should be pointed out that all men are born with an evil, corrupt heart according to the Bible.  Therefore everyone could be under the influence of Satan or following him, unless he is born again.  See gospel of John.

Could it be possible that Satan is using you?  How did you rule this out?

Why is your definition the “correct” definition?  If it’s “possible” that a god believer could be a secular humanist, then how could that narrow definition you gave be the correct one?

That is actually a very important question you ask.  I'm glad you asked it.

1.  I don't believe Satan is using me because I believe in Jesus Christ and his word, the Bible. .Jesus is God and is infinitely more powerful than Satan.  Satan is a created being. This website says: 

"A Father’s Care
God is not only our Creator; He is also our Father. As such, it is inconceivable that He would leave His children unprotected. In Matthew 6:8, Jesus says that our Father knows our needs before we ask Him. If we, even in our fallen condition, seek to provide for our children, how much more does God in His perfection seek to shelter and care for His offspring!

Scripture testifies that He has “granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence” (2 Peter 1:3). The more we possess a true knowledge of the Almighty, the more accessible His provisions for us become. What has He given us? He has prepared an abiding place for us where all that we need concerning life and godliness is ours. It is a place where every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places belongs to us in Christ (Eph. 1:3)."

The following verses pretty well sum it up:

"10  Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11  Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. {flesh…: Gr. blood and flesh} {spiritual…: or, wicked spirits} {high: or, heavenly} 13  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. {having…: or, having overcome all} 14  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15  And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; " Ephesians 6:10-17 KJV

If you want to watch some video messages on this go to Pastor Stephane Chauvette's website called A Word for Today. He is speaking on this subject weekly now and has his messages on his website.  You can find them there and watch them.  You too can be protected from Satan if you become a child of God in Jesus Christ.

2.  As for the definition of secular humanist, I am only going by what I read on websites on the subject.  I also looked it up on dictionaries on the internet.  You can verify that yourself via a search engine.

So, Satan can fool other people who believe in God (Jesus), just not you?

What if you don’t even know it…?  If others can’t tell, how can you?

Should I define what a Christian is?  Or should I ask a Christian?

Why not just ask secular humanists what makes a secular humanist, rather than having someone who clearly does not like them be the one to define them?

Nowhere does it say that someone must be an atheist to apply the principles of secular humanism.

 

https://www.humanistcanada.ca/about/humanism/

Humanists believe that the solutions to the world’s problems lie in human thought and action rather than divine intervention. Humanism advocates the application of the methods of science and free inquiry to the problems of human welfare. But Humanists also believe that the application of science and technology must be tempered by human values. Science gives us the means but human values must propose the ends.
