Propaganda of Atheism... Outright Lies and Sacred Cows
Rolling in their Graves...
In the photo attached you will be quick to notice that there are a total of 8 mens pictures with a note attached that promotes the idea that the "Intelligent Men" in the photo were all Atheists.
Take a look at the photo... a good look and see if you can identify the men on sight... and then check your memory... and see if you remember any theological information about them.
This photo has been floating around the blogs for some time now... I have seen it before from time to time and just shook my head... But today I just had enough of it...
I numbered the men in the photo and then searched each of their beliefs... even the ones I already knew the answer to... You might want to do the same because the results will probably surprise you in a very big way.
In case you are not familiar with all of the faces in that photo, here is a photo with the names duly noted next to the numbers...
I need to point out that Number 1) Resembles Sean Connery... since no one seems to claim this photo... and nobody (Until Now) has bothered to try and identify the men or their ideologies in respect to this photo I will have to assume that number 1) is in fact suppose to be Sean Connery... If someone can Positively identify this person as someone other than Sean Connery.. then please do so..
Debunking Distorted History
So I really want to ask: Were all of these men really "Atheists" or is someone trying to pull a fast one on somebody? Who were each of these men, and what were their Theological Beliefs?
My answers were searched out from their own Biographies... It was as simple as going and looking for the information... its right there in bold print for everyone to read.
My findings? Only Two of them pictured as Intelligent Atheists were even close to Atheist in their beliefs... (even they were Unitarians) The other Men were all Devout Believers in God... although they came from different Churches and had their own opinions on who and what that God was, There is no doubt as to what they really believed. There is however a growing movement in our society today to Re- write history to suit your own agenda and it does not take allot of looking to see who is guilty of it...
A Few More "Intelligent Men"
One night Abraham Lincoln suggested to a young man that they take a walk along a country road. Lincoln lifted his eyes to the heavens full of stars and said,:
"I never behold them that I don't feel I am looking into the face of God. A man might look down upon the earth and be an atheist, but I cannot conceive how he could look into the heavens and say there is no God."

Alfred Hitchcock (1899-1980), the movie director, told a parable in Guideposts (1959) about the unknown. There once was a king who was granted two wishes. His first was to see the future. But when he saw all that lay ahead -- the beauty and the pain -- he immediately asked for his second wish; that the future be hidden. "I thank Heaven," the master of suspense proclaimed, "that tomorrow does not belong to any man. It belongs to God."
