War is a clash
of ideas about what one believes to be true, and
others with different view points. Your experiences, family,
friends, education, and the media help to form your belief system, or World
Everyone has a world view:
educated or uneducated, religous or non-religious, rich or poor,
liberal or conservative. Your basic beleifs form your world
view. These basic beliefs come from the following questions:
Who am I? Where did I come from? What happens when
I die? Is there a God? Where did the universe come from?
What is truth? What are good and evil? What is my
purpose? How you answer these basic questions forms
a viewpoint or your reality from which you evaluate and make sense
out of all data of life and the world.
For the past 150 years new ideas and
discoveries in science have challenged the traditional Christian World
View, that God created the Earth, Sun, Moon, the stars and all life on
Earth. Dr. D. James Kennedy has said, "The Cultural
War is a difference in the World Viewpoints between
believers and non-believers of Christ."
There are a number of discovers and new theories that
were developed in the 19th and 20th centuries, that have molded
the present day mind set of American Society. New
discoveries in the past ten years are casting some doubt of some of
these old theories. While
some are eager to latch onto the new ideas, many others are still
holding onto the old ideas and values of the past. A recent
national poll that asked, "Do you believe there is a God?"
Eighty five percent of Americans that answered the question,
said "Yes" they do believe in a supreme being.
This web site explores
the various ideas that have been developed, which challenge the
Traditional Values, that most Americans believe in. We will
look back and trace the origins of this
division, and how it started. In the 2004
election many voters expressed their reason for voting was based on
"Values". We will seek to define and understand these
which are different between the Christian and secular atheists
viewpoints. There seems to be
so much anger and bitterness in the secular part of our society and a
deep concern in the Christian sector for the future of our
country. We will
attempt explore the viewpoints from both sides.
America was founded, American society held a more homogeneous Christian
Value System, but as
the 20th century progressed these values were attacked from various
quarters, thus splintering society into different groups with different
"World Views". Today the splintering of societies "Values"
reflected in our political parties, the Red
States verses the Blue
division in values is more divisive than its been since the Civil War.
