It is all in the celebration of contradiction by Rev. James L. Snyder 

I was enjoying an early morning on the back porch with a steaming hot
cup of coffee and celebrating the new day. After all, the winter was 
far behind me and Spring has sprung, finally. I was enjoying the early 
morning when the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage startled me with 
her appearance. I thought she was still in her bedroom but, lo and 
behold, here she was in all her robe-optic glory. 

"Don't you think this week is full of contradictions?" She queried. 

Not knowing what she was talking about and thinking I might be in some
kind of trouble, I told her I did not quite understand what she was 
getting at. My basic philosophy of life is simply this, if in 
doubt...don't. I cannot tell you how many unpleasant experiences this 
has saved me. 

"Well," my wife tried explaining to me, "Here we are this week
celebrating two holidays. Don't you think that is rather a strange 
contradiction in holidays?" 

What I thought was strange was her plying me with questions that I had
no understanding of what she was getting at. Furthermore, it would be 
the epitome of strangeness if I tried to answer in some intelligent 
form without understanding where she was coming from. 

"You don't know what I'm getting at, do you?" 

I learned a long time ago that it is better to agree with what you don't
know than explaining why you disagree. I confessed to her that I had no 
idea what she was talking about. 

Then she explained the situation to me and I had one of those "Ah"
moments. Occasionally I have one of these moments. Usually, and I am 
not complaining, it is when I am talking to my wife, or rather, she is 
talking to me. 

What she was referring to were the two holidays celebrated within
several days of each other. The first being, of course, April Fools' 
Day and the second, Easter Sunday. I had to agree with her it was 
rather a strange sort of affairs. There could not be two more diverse 
holidays to celebrate then these. 

On the one hand, we have April Fools' Day. This is the primary atheist
holiday and I base that on the Bible. "The fool hath said in his heart, 
There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, 
there is none that doeth good" (Psalms 14:1 KJV). 

Of course, I do not believe in atheists. I have never met an atheist in
my entire life. I have met people who said they were atheists, but I 
never believed it. Every time an atheist gets in trouble, he blames it 
on God. Remember 9/11? Now, if he really does not believe in God, why 
does he blame things on God? 

I must give credit to these people who think they are atheists. They
firmly believe that there is no God despite the evidence to the 
contrary. 

Take the controversy between evolution and creationism. After all the
efforts by so-called experts, nobody has come up with any solid proof 
supporting the theory of evolution. Despite the labors of many to prove 
otherwise, the evidence supporting creationism is overwhelming. For 
someone to reject solid facts and then cling on to an unproven theory 
has to be the epitome of foolishness. 

Then, on the other hand, we have Easter Sunday. This is a
well-documented event in the history of mankind. Certainly, many have 
tried to disapprove the resurrection of Jesus Christ, but all to no 
avail. Very few events in history have more collaborating evidence then 
the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

As my wife and I continued talking about this, she made a very good
point. Her point being, that after 2,000 years of vicious attacks on 
the Bible to prove it wrong, nobody has ever come up with any proof 
that it is false. Not one word of the Bible has ever been proven to be
