Watering the Tulips

“The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God.’  They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none who does good” – Psalms 14:1

A design requires a designer.  No reasonable person would ever look at a wristwatch or an automobile and believe that they are products of mere chance.  It’s illogical and, frankly, silly.  Yet, well educated individuals will look at the grand design that is our planet and universe and believe that it is nothing more than a cosmic burp.  There simply is no more reason to believe this than to believe a wristwatch is a product of evolution.  Only a fool would do such.

This past week, there was a debate between Ken Hamm (Answers in Genesis) and Bill Nye, the Science Guy.  These men approached the subject of creation and evolution from opposite ends of the spectrum.  Ken Hamm (rightly) believes that we are the product of special creation by God.  He believes that there is meaning to our existence.  He believes that God has a purpose in our lives.  He believes that God is Judge and we are accountable to Him.  He believes our loving God sent Christ into the world to redeem us from the curse of the Fall in the Garden of Eden.  Bill Nye rejects all of that.  To him, there is no purpose in life, no value in a human being and no hope of any eternal existence.  Simply, evolution does nothing to encourage a person.  Yet, billions believe it to be so.   Why?

Sir Arthur Keith, British anthropologist and atheistic evolutionist, said, “Evolution is unproved and unprovable. We believe it only because the only alternative is special creation, and that is unthinkable”.  How much more foolish can it be?  This man knew the facts surrounding this debate.  He knew that basic scientific principles did not support evolution.  Through much research in which he hoped to prove that evolution was at least possible, he had only come to see the impossibility of it.  Yet, in the end, he believed evolution, not because of his research, but because he refused to believe in God.  Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be” (Romans 8:7).

Do not be deceived, evolution is not science.  Science is the investigation of facts and no scientific principle supports evolution.  Disorder never produces order.  Yet, the evolutionist needs that to occur.  The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics disproves evolution quite easily.  This law (in elementary form) states that energy is becoming less useable.  Because of this, anything left to itself (without energy) will become more chaotic.  Thus, the supposed “infinitesimal dot” (nothing) which ultimately exploded in the Big Bang is impossible because energy couldn’t have been added unless by an outside source.  Simply, anything left to itself will lose energy and ultimately degenerate such as an old house or automobile.  Yet, evolutionary scientists, in an attempt to reject Creation, ignore this proven scientific theory because they prefer not to believe in God.  This is not science, my friends.  This is faith based religion.   Evolution is religion, not science.
