"Faith is one of the world's great evils....it is capable of drawing people to such dangerous folly...it seems to me to qualify as a kind of mental illness." -Dr. Richard Dawkins
"If scientists can destroy the influence of religion on young people, then I think it may be the most important contribution we can make." -Dr. Steven Weinburg
"Secular professors should arrange things so that students who enter as bigoted, homophobic religious fundamentalists will leave college with views more like our own." -Richard Rorty
"The compromise that we're seeing in Christian colleges always centers on this: What we believe about the inspiration, inerracy and infallibility of Scripture. This IS the issue. The authority of Scripture is a central point of faith. If you don't get the first 2 chapters of the sacred text right, you cannot get the rest right either."
"So, no literal Fall, no literal Adam and Eve - so much for Christianity! And all people have descended from several thousand people, not just two - which means the Apostle Paul in Romans 5 and 1 Corinthians 15 is wrong concerning the gospel! And if that's the case, then Jesus didn't even tell the truth in Matthew 19 when he quoted Genesis and built the doctrine of marriage on the literal history in this account.
It seems the atheists understand theology better than these compromised Christians. They realize that if a literal Fall and a literal Adam and Eve are indeed false, then there is no use being a Christian because it undermines the very basis for the gospel.
One leading atheist claims:
Christianity has fought, still fights and will fight science to the desperate end over evolution, because evolution destroys utterly and finally the very reason Jesus' earthly life was supposedly made necessary. Destroy Adam and Eve and the original sin and in the rubble you will find the sorry remains of the son of god. Take away the meaning of his death. If Jesus was not the redeemer that died for our sins and this is what evolution means, then Christianity is nothing."
