From certainly one of Britain’s so much extraordinary historians comes the stirring tale of 1 of the trendy world’s most crucial but arguable highbrow achievements: atheism.

Since Friedrich Nietzsche roundly declared that “God is dead” in 1882, a raft of reflective and brave members have dedicated their inventive energies to devising how you can dwell with no Him, turning as a substitute to invention, enthusiasm, wish, wit and, primarily, a number of different types of self-reliance. Their courageous, ingenious tale has long past untold—until now. within the Age of Atheists, acclaimed historian Peter Watson deals a sweeping narrative of the secular philosophers and poets, psychologists and scientists, painters and playwrights, novelists or even choreographers who've cast an exhilarating, daring course within the absence of non secular belief.

O. Wilson and Sam Harris, The Age of Atheists brilliantly explores how atheism has developed, deepened and matured, and received exceptional resonance and recognition because it has sought to exchange an unknowable God within the afterlife with the voluptuous aspect and heat of this lifestyles, to be present in artwork, philosophy and technology, all woven right into a rational, secular morality.

Atheism has had its percentage of ideologues, tyrants and charlatans, however it is chiefly a historical past of courageous accomplishment—and one who is way from finished.

From Nietzsche and his nihilism to Dawkins and Dennett, Nagel and Habermas, Watson’s stimu­lating highbrow narrative explores the innovative principles and massive questions provoked by means of those nice minds and pursuits. A gleaming and eventually trium­phant background, The Age of Atheists is the 1st complete tale of our efforts to dwell with out God.

144000 Auserwählte wurden oder werden dann als »Kirche« oder »Versammlung Gottes« in den Himmel entrückt. Nach Harmagedon erhalten sie die Herrschaft über die Erde, während der »große Rest« der »wahren Diener Gottes« unter idealen Bedingungen die Erde während des Milleniums in ein Paradies verwandelt. »Zunächst werden diejenigen, die Harmagedon überleben, die Erde säubern und die Ruinen dieses alten Systems beseitigen .. Nie wieder wird jemand ohne gute Nahrung und annehmbare Wohnbedingungen leben ...

Das Jahr 1967 war der erste Termin fiir die Wiederherstellung des Reiches Gottes auf Erden, aber dann kam es zur Bestimmung von zwei weiteren Sieben:Jahre-Perioden mit Zwischenzielen. 1 Bezeichnend fiir die millenaristische Ausrichtung ist der dramatische Kampf zwischen den göttlichen und satanischen Mächten und der deutliche Auftrag zur Weltverbesserung in der Erwartung des Zweiten Advent. Die Moonies glauben, daß sie durch ihr Gott-zentriertes Leben in der einen universalen Familie - der Vereinigungskirche - die Welt retten können.

3. Universelles Leben Die Gemeinschaft »Universelles Leben« (früher: ))Heimholungswerk Jesu Christi«) geht auf Offenbarungen zurück, welche Gabriele Wittek seit 1975 von Gott zu erhalten beansprucht. Sie ist die ))Prophetin der Jetztzeit«, Werkzeug des Geistes, ein auf den Geist eingestimmtes Instrument. Bald entstanden kleine ))Christuszellen« mit Schwerpunkt im Raume Würzburg/Nürnberg. 1989 sprach die Gemeinschaft von 80 Versammlungsorten in Deutschland und im nahen Ausland. Für das Selbstverständnis der Gemeinschaft ist der Glaube zentral, daß Jesus Christus nach dem Versagen der Kirchen nun nochmals versucht, die wahre Christengemeinschaft aufzubauen, die sich nicht auf äußere Institutionen stützt, sondern allein auf der Bindung an den inneren Christus-Gott beruht; es geht um den strahlenden Aufstieg der gottzugewandten Seele.
