The Folly of Atheism



Watering the Tulips

“The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God’” – Psalms 14:1

Atheism is a form of religion by every definition of the word.  It is based on evolution that is simply a foolish supposition.  Science can be defined as “the investigation of facts”.  That having been said, no part of evolution has ever been (or ever will be) proven.  Charles Darwin believed that the fossil record would “prove” his theory within 100 years of his research.  However, this has not happened.  In fact, the more humans have dug, the wider the gap has grown between man and beast.

Atheistic scientists hoped scientific advancements would support their ideas of macro-evolution (the belief that one type of animal produces another).  However, with scientific advancements such as the discovery of DNA, just the opposite has occurred.  Logic would lead you to believe scientists would have abandoned a theory that has been proven more and more impossible.  But, they have not.  They have continued to accept the evolutionary theories even though true science has actually proven those theories to be impossible.  Therefore, they accept evolution by faith – it is a religion.

Sadly, we live in an age when many Christians feel threatened by the scientific community.  Unlearned believers often trust scientists over the Word of God.  Some believers accept theories such as the “day age” theory that proposes that the 7 days of Creation are more like long ages of time.  Yet, God’s Word says, “…the evening and the morning were the first day”.  The same is said for each successive day.  This is clear proof that the days were literal 24-hour days.

Some believers’ today claim to be theistic evolutionists.  This is an oxymoron.  There is no such thing.  This is nothing more than compromise.  Worse yet, the denial of Genesis 1 and 2 equates to the denial of the rest of the Bible.  Simply, if there was no Creation, then there was no Garden of Eden. There was no Adam and Eve.  There was no serpent.  There was no forbidden fruit.  And, there was no Fall.  Understand, we need Jesus because of the Fall of man in the Garden of Eden when Adam ate the forbidden fruit and was sentenced to death, and we in him.

A denial of Creation is a denial of the Gospel.  There is no middle ground here.  Christians should reject any idea that would extend the age of the Earth more than the Bible allows for.  The evolutionists have continued to add age to the Earth as more scientific advancements are made which have proven evolution to be more and more impossible.  To accept their dating is to accept a foolish fallacy.  We need to teach our children a simple truth – when the teacher says, “Millions of years ago…”, just mentally insert “Once upon a time…” because whatever follows “Millions of years…” is nothing more than a fairy tale.
