“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.” (Romans 1:18-25)
That verse comes to my mind when I read of the evidence, from advocates of Intelligent Design (good work guys), that Darwins THEORY of Evolution is flawed and untrue. I can think of no other explanation than this verse for it. Man, by his fallen nature hates God and will do anything he can to try and eradicate God from the face of his own creation. People latch on to evolution because it, in some way, soothes their guilty consciences and allows them to live like animals. However long militant atheists and evolutionists struggle to eradicate God from our lives, I can say assuredly it will be in vain. Well, Not I, but Jesus. Christians can rest assured on His promise that he will build his church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it (Matthew 16:18). That includes false scientific theories about the origins of life. However, that doesn’t mean we are to sit back and refuse to engage with the cultural debate and “let God be God”. God has ordained that we evangelise and engage with the culture. Think of the Great Commission and the enagagement of Paul with the Philosophers at Mars Hill in Athens. Too many Christians (i was once guilty of this) fail to engage their God-given intellect to enable interaction, with believers and non-believers alike, about the cultural issues of our time. Here are a few quotes that you may find helpful;
“The conclusion of intelligent design flows naturally from the data itself- not from sacred books or sectarian beliefs. Inferring that biochemical systems were designed by an intelligent agent is a humdrum process that requires no new principles of logic or science. It comes simply from the hard work that biochemistry has done over the past forty years, combined with consideration of the way in which we reach conclusions of design every day.” Michael Behe. Darwin’s Black Box, 2006
“DNA is like a computer program but far, far ore advanced than any software ever created” Bill Gates
“Throughout 150 years of the science bacteriology, there is no evidence that one species of bacteria has changed into another……Since there is no evidence for species changes between the simplest forms of unicellular life, it is not surprising that there is no evidence for evolution….throughout the whole array of higher multicellular organisms” Bacteriologist Alan H. Linton, 2001
Did You know that;
1.)The famous “ape to man” species chart is based on guesswork, not evidence. Darwin’s “evidence” for evolution amounted to “one or two imaginary illustrations” of how the process might work.
2.)Intelligent design is based on scientific evidence not religious belief
3.) What many public schools teach about Darwinism is based on known falsehoods
4.) Scientists at major universities see good evidence for intelligent design
5.) The Fossil record offers no evidence for one species evolving into another
6.)That Darwin conceded that the evidence was against him (and nothings changed)
7.) Darwinist assumptions are not harmeless- and are enforced, even when known to be wrong in schools and universities.
