"Dave Silverman, 45, has added a clever twist to the fad. He is genuflecting like Tebow does when he prays, but he's also mimicking Rodin's The Thinker. This is a nod to the atheist or humanistic belief that it is man --not a higher power -- who is purely in control of his fate. Silverman is Tebowing to his fellow man." Dave Silverman is the President of the American Atheists.
Silverman goes on to say "The universe has a trillion stars ninety five percent of it is dark matter. It's hubris to think the Creator of all that wants the Broncos to win a football game." So Silverman calls Tebow a "victim" because of the quarterback’s
belief that "he's not doing it -- God is doing it through him." Therefore, according to Silverman, Tebow is "brainwashing himself."
I find it fascinating that an atheist is even willing to use the work creator in discussing the universe. Putting that aside these people who deny the existence of God do not understand that Tim Tebow believes God created him just as the inspired word of God says in Psalm 139:13-14“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. …I am fearfully and wonderfully made you works are wonderful….” Tebow realizes that God provides our abilities and talents and that acknowledging this pleases God. Tim Tebow has learned that “The fear (admiration, awe) of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, but fools despise wisdom….” But as the Psalmist says in Psalms 14:1 “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God’”
Well enough said…
