Want Some Answers ???Evolutionism
>>I understand your rantings now on the scepticfriends page...your not even a scientist!! You never even spent a minute in a paleontology lab or biology lab in university...sheesh<<
It doesn't take "a scientist" to prove there's a God and I've never claimed to be a palaeontologist or scientist!! But one thing I know, evolution is NOT science but a philosophy without proof. A Palaeontologist wrote, "Its easy to construct stories of how one form gave rise to another, and to find reasons why the stages should be favoured by natural selection. But such stories are not part of science, for there is no way of putting them to the test". ('Darwin's Enigma' by Luther D. Sunderland Master Books San Diego, USA 1984 p.89) .
Another scientist wrote that, 'evolutionism has not produced a scientifically credible explanation for the origin of such immense complexities as DNA, the human brain and many elements of the cosmos'. I've heard many scientists say why they're Christians, but God's existence [for me] is not a one-minute lab test but a lifetime reality. You wrote,
>>You theist/creationists are really a small minded bunch (God would be ashamed not using that knoggin He gave you).<<
Yes God expects us to use the 'knoggin' He gave [hence I'm certain He exists]. But He also expects us to obey His Word - so we don't become "small minded". The Bible tells us about man, life, God, love, right and wrong. And why man is at war with himself and his neighbour. Evolution has no explanation. In fact, because man originally disobeyed God's word he's now enslaved to sin. That's the problem with man. Sin blinds man to the truth it makes man hostile to God and separates him from God. Evolution doesn't tell you this, it doesn't help at all. Evolutionists think death, suffering and struggle are good to help evolution along. What nonsense! The Bible says are they are an intrusion into the world. The fact we are God's creatures and have a fallen sinful nature explains a lot. You wrote,
>>But, if you want to go around believing He waves his magic wand at times to "tweek" His creations, that's your right. "PooF"...now we have a cell..."poof" now I will bring those cells together..."poof" ...now I have a "multicellular organism" (what is that is ancient Hebrew?)..."Poof"...I better call it vegetable and let it grow in the seas that I have created...and so on, and so on...do ya really begin to see the idiotic nature of your "beliefs"?? Tom<<
No He didn't 'wave a magic wand' He simply spoke and things came into existence. It's when we ignore God's Word and make up stories how God created that our beliefs become 'idiotic'.
But it's "idiotic" to assume everything came from nothing by itself. We must believe that in the beginning was God or was nothing. All things came from nothing or God. The fact the universe and earth exists with life is a powerful argument there is a God.
And the fact that life only comes from pre-existent life not from matter. How can time, matter and chance produced life? Even matter must have originated by a method equivalent to creation. How can nothing produce matter and matter produce life? How can non-living matter jump the many hurdles required for living cells? Even the simplest living cells are amazingly complex.
That's why atheism has no explanation for life, because without God life has no explanation. It makes more sense that, "in the beginning God created the heavens and earth" than millions of atoms fell together by themselves without a blueprint and made the ENORMOUSLY complex basic cell. There must be intelligence to start with, to direct atoms. All things left to themselves fall apart, not together.
It takes intelligence to produce something intelligent. How can anything void of intelligence produce something as complex as the human brain? Belief in God's existence is in harmony with history, mans mental and moral nature, as well as the nature of the material universe. It's the most logically and feasible worldview. Atheism solves no problems and answers no questions, whereas God's existence is like a magical key that fits the facts of Scripture, knowledge and science.
Men who ignore God do so not because science or reason requires them to, but purely and simply because they want to. "They did not like to retain God in their knowledge" [Rom 1:28]. "Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools" [Rom 1:22-23]. For those who desire to know God, He has revealed Himself perfectly through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him" [Jn.1:18].
