The Most Dangerous Idea

Cornelius Carroll forwards this:

Bill Muehlen - "Questioner from the audience: "What dangerous idea has the greatest potential to change this world for the better?”
Peter Hitchens: "The most dangerous idea in human history and philosophy remains the belief that Jesus Christ was the Son of God and rose from the dead and that is the most dangerous idea you will ever encounter.”
The compere: "Why dangerous?”
Mr Hitchens: "Because it alters the whole of human behaviour and all our responsibilities. It turns the universe from a meaningless chaos into a designed place in which there is justice and there is hope and, therefore, we all have a duty to discover the nature of that justice and work towards that hope. It alters us all. If we reject it, it alters us all as well. It is incredibly dangerous. It’s why so many people turn against it.”
This question was asked of the panellists at the end of a "Q&A” show at the Opera House during the "Festival of Dangerous Ideas” in November 2013."

Tim adds:

Agreed! It overthrew emperors and empires and stifling systems of government. It overturned religious systems and their rulers. It created a moral code that had to be at least bowed to. It overhauled all of society. There would be no Magna Carta, no U.S. Constitution,no Bill of Rights without it. Limited government never would have been born.

It led to the invention of the scientific Method and the creation of universities. It led to universal literacy and the rise of the kingdom of rational thought (sadly those institutions are now the bitter enemy of the very thing which gave them birth.)

It gave us the free market.

We are now rejecting the Good News and this is leading to a reassertion of all the old ills of the world that we thought were gone. The darkness of paganism and sexual perversion have returned and with them the suffering caused by oppressive government and exploitative controlled economies and trampling of human rights.
