I happened on to the Science Channel as I surfed for something to watch while I read my email. Not to poke fun at the channel, but I can say, that is the stuff of comedy. Having grown up with "Mad Magazine" and parodies of that era, It has helped me see humor in many things others take serious. Please tell me that people don't seriously believe this stuff...I mean, brilliant minds in 2013, cannot take this serious! Sponge Bob Squarepants is more believable. Before we spend another cent giving grants for research for biological evolution, please lay some real physical proof that it is even possible. If you cannot, then let's send a team of marine biologists to search for Bikini Bottom and Atlantis with the grant money, it's waste either way.
How did this "science" go from theory to fact? If science was so desperate to find a reason for our existence, other than a Creator, come up with physical proof and then teach that science as fact. Start with a moon rock or some kryptonite, something that exists. You have nothing because there is nothing. I can say that you learned well from Vladimir Lenin who said, "if you tell a lie often enough and long enough people will believe it." (Hitler stole that saying from Lenin) Nearly every literate nation that allows this doctrine of man to be taught in schools have whole populations believing it. Often enough, long enough. Since we are like cattle, we basically say, "I'll take your word for it," too lazy or apathetic to research these ideas for ourselves.
What are the facts of man's origin? What do you have for physical evidence to prove it? When I think of great minds refused tenure because they disagreed with this "science," I am sure that you have such evidence. Otherwise, refusing good people with great minds would be a travesty, wouldn't it?
To the followers of this "science," think this, "religion." That is what this particular science is. You take it by faith without proof which makes biological evolution a "faith." I understand that so many brilliant minds have devoted their entire lives to this study only to end their life empty, without answers, but many more questions. Only pride keeps them from admission, as individuals. Fear, and loss of credibility keeps the false teaching alive..."what will we tell the people?...they will have our heads for this!" Not really, people will move on and forget the billions spent on the research that could have been used for useful things like food and clothing for the poor.
As ridiculous as this "science" is to me, to intelligencia, religion is just as ridiculous. "There is nothing on earth that points them to a physical proof of a Creator," they think. Long before Darwin's writings, documents were written, handed down from generation to generation, and carefully copied for preservation. These point to the explanation of man's origin. Secularists have done everything they can do to discredit the possibility that these documents can be valid evidence of a Creator. They have long denied the Bible saying things like, "it's like the children's game telephone, by the time these stories go from generation to generation, the original meanings are scrambled without a possibility of accuracy." Have those making such claims researched their own accusations? Highly doubtful. There is the fear that the may find out it is real, then what?
According to those opposed to the Bible's accuracy, they claim there was no king David, or Solomon. The prophets were not the actual writers of the books named for them, etc. Yet another science, archaeology, has proven most of what they deny. David and Solomon were not folk-stories. They are not hung up as much on the creation as the miracles of the exodus from Egypt, and those of Elijah and Elisha. The resurrection of Jesus, closes the book for them, "these things could not have happened," they say.
I understand, I empathize. It is okay, they are hard to accept.
We definitely have differences, nothing to cause this continuous mud-slinging to continue for another generation. It is a face-off. I cannot convince you, nor you me. I can, however, point to additional evidence you may never accept...changed lives. Biological evolution, nor any wisdom of man can change the heart of an alcoholic like me, to turn me from my addiction and its misery, and begin to really experience life with joy and purpose. It cannot give me meaning or peace when I grieve over loss. It definitely does not present me hope for my eternal existence, and the adventures beyond this life. Only Jesus can, my faith in Him, His creation of this universe, and the constant metamorphosis, conforming me into His image. That particular science does not give me a desire to help the broken like myself, helping them find their way out of trouble. These reasons, plus ten-thousand others, gives me proof of Him, and a reason to follow Him. He never changes, science always does. I'll stick with what works.
Let me know if you agree or disagree.
Thanks for reading, God bless and keep you all.
