The Atheist as Prophet

At the base of Islam is the well-known confession, "There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his prophet." This defines the fundamentalism of that oppressive and close-minded religion: One authority, and one voice for that authority, any­thing outside of which is damnable.

Atheist's say they abhor this type of dogma­tism, preferring "freethinking"—a not unwhole­some thing in itself—but many unwittingly fall into a very similar type of self-imposed mental blindness in the name of free-thought. One need only recall the history of Marxist-inspired revolution, and the mass graves of "dialectical mate­rialism" (a fancy phrase for "atheistic struggle," or which could well be put, "atheist jihad"). This history has well been written of elsewhere.

 Among the atheists who inspired those slaughters stands the figure of Leon Trotsky, whom Hitchens relates was immortalized in a definitive biography entitled The Prophet. "Prophet" now carries a pejorative to the extent that it implies a voice of authority: especially in the form of God telling us how to live. In the past, when these atheists have taken a stand against God, they have turned and formed their own dictatorship and ruled as gods themselves. The creed of atheism, were its proponents careful and honest enough to formulate it, would inevi­tably mimic the Islamic pillar thusly: "There is no god, and I am His prophet."

This is a direct quote from a great little book by Douglas Wilson.   "God Is"   How Christianity Explains Everything...  a reply to the late Christopher Hitchens, a renowned atheist who wrote a book "God Is Not Great :  How Religion Poisons Everything".

Delicious reading.
