Tenth Year of Scifaith and My Continuing Expose’ of Science

Time moves on for a little blog in the middle of this big internet jungle. I will continue to pray that our Creator will use it to help people like you shake loose of the shackles of darwinism and godless science. No form of blindness is more severe and debilitating than the inability to see ourselves as created beings that have been put here by a loving Creator! It would seem impossible for anyone who has studied living things in any detailed way to suggest that they have come about by spontaneous generation and yet this is just the declaration that science makes.

If you want to continue to trust these blind guides that want to turn you away from the knowledge of a real Creator Who engineered living things will intense love and care, that is a choice you will regret. I decided to think for myself and concluded that spontaneous generation, AKA evolution is a really bad joke and an embarrassment for all of mankind. To take the most complex, integrated and efficient creatures in the known universe and demand that non of them were created by a super-intelligent Being is an abomination to say the least. Then to have the gall to appoint a complete idiot like “mutation and natural selection” as a spontaneously generation creator is tragic.

Perhaps Darwin thought that he could punish his Creator for the loss of his daughter at an early age. Many people conclude that there is no Creator when they have a loss like that. The fact is, Our Creator gives life and all of us will die, some sooner, some later. To become angry with God Almighty and declare that living things must have no Creator and were therefore spontaneously generated was Darwin’s way of getting back I suppose.

Now the world seems to be climbing on that bandwagon. Somehow Darwin’s madness has struck a chord with so many. And so spontaneous generation marches on like a mad dog that conceals its disease with intellectual fluff in order to get close enough to bite and spread its madness.

How Far We’ve Fallen

A while back I read a book called, “The Light and the Glory”. It was a story about the beginnings of freedom and democracy in the US. On the surface there appeared to be great leaders who trusted the Creator and did great things. But, it didn’t say anything about the sell out to pagan secret “societies”. The push for pagan globalism was at work even in those days but at least there was a certain amount of “official” respect for the laws of God and the people of God.

Jesus never taught his disciples to conquer their enemies, but rather to bless them. Now we have supposed Christians arming themselves to the teeth in order to protect themselves from the rising antichristian sentiment in the US and the West. Jesus taught that we need not fear those that can only kill the body, but not the soul. Rather to fear Him who can do both, we should fear Him! Democracy will only work as long as the voting majority respects the laws of God Almighty. The breakdown of this has been rather precipitous of late but the roots of rebellion against the Creator have been there all along.

We say that we have democracy, but in reality our legal system is based on single case “precedents” that determine the “law of the land”. The so-called “separation of church and state” actually established the government as an antichristian system. The more that this travesty is enforced the less practicing Christians can participate which is vital to successful governance in the States. If our Creator does not lead us, we will all fall in the ditch. The US is aligning itself with the crosshairs of the judgment of our Creator.

For years we’ve been tolerating so-called “science” deceiving our children to see themselves as animals instead of God’s special and separate creation. They are taught by the antichristian evolutionist teachers they trust that Christian parents are superstitious fools that should be mocked and disdained. Stripped of any hope past the grave they often choose to live only for the moment and when their conscience gets in the way they cope with chemicals and “extreme” sports, “edgy” music, vulgarity, all too often suicide, and so on.

Where is the answer? All in the teachings of Jesus! As He says,”Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”

Genetic Engineering and Other Obsurdities

Science is a world of ignorance punctuated by bits of insight. This truth is evident in such human endeavors as: pharmaceuticals, evolution, education, genetically modified organisms “GMO”, gene patents, sociology, cosmology (the granddaddy of them all), physics (notably nuclear physics), to name a few.  There will always be problems when you monkey with correctly engineered things. This is so important to realize when considering altering the genetics of living things. I realize that the genomes of all living things are subject to decay and after innumerable replications of these wonderful creatures all around us and ourselves, and the forces at work , that some of the original genetic information has decayed as well.

Corn
Signs of Corn Seed Accounting?

This level of engineering is so far above anything that has ever come out of science that it makes our feeble attempts look like mud pies. So, why are we trying to fix it, or worse yet, modify it? Do the drug companies ever listen to the disclaimers in their commercials? Just think of growing use of bacterial genetic material  being spliced into corn genes to make them produce a pesticide that will protect the corn from bugs. Will that pesticide end up in the corn we eat? Will the bacteria also modify our genes to turn humans into pesticide factories? How else will the new genes effect the corn, will the bugs become resistant to the pesticide?

We’re dealing with processes and machinery operating entirely at the atomic level and therefore impossible to monitor with any level of precision. There is some level of regulation by the government and in some cases an intense approval process in place to minimize negative impact. But, then again, the organizations spearheading these efforts are science-based usually and these folks still believe in superstitious things like evolutionism and such. Breeding plants and animals based on naturally occurring variations is one thing, but playing Russian roulette  with their genes is just insanely dangerous especially when the motivation is profit driven.

Above all, it’s imperative to acknowledge that living things have a Creator who knows what we are up to! As we consider that fact, perhaps we will set aside these foolish enterprises.

What a Wonderful World!

When you really begin to look at the universe around us as the fantastic engineering marvel that it all is (and it IS!) you will begin to see man’s engineering achievements for what they are, very humble at best. Even matter itself is a feat of engineering beyond comprehension or even imagination! It appears that 3 basic entities of the minutist scale are combined with a vast number of variations in a precise way that can be combined to produce things from dust particles to neutron stars and galaxies.

Galaxies were Engineered

The more we learn about His fantastically glorious engineering by the God of the Universe who has allowed us to approach Him thru Jesus and actually speak to Him and learn from Him, the more of a huge privalege it is to be a part of His creation! I can assure you that He takes a very personal interest in each of us. The Lord Jesus said that a sparrow is sold for very little money and yet none of them falls without its Creator’s (the Father) knowledge. So, He continues saying, How much more valuable are you?

We get all up in the air about a species’ extinction and yet we have no investment in the creature’s design and care. The Tasmanian Tiger was a wonderfully engineered creature that was snuffed out by selfish men and yet it could be easily reintroduced by God if He so pleased at any time. He introduced it once, He could do it again. The same applies to T-Rex and Velociraptor and Spiny, though it wouldn’t make our lives very pleasant would it.

We really need to come to grips with whom we are dealing with. Darwin stuck his head in the sand and wooed the world with his lame excuses in “Origin…” and whatnot. He tried to support spontaneous generation with ad-nauseum overworked natural adaptation. It’s time to wake up and realize the crisis mankind is in. “The wages of sin is death.” Our Creator, the Lord of Heaven and earth came as Jesus to pay those wages for all who are willing to believe and follow Him. This is real love.

If you don’t see our Creator’s commitment to us and His universe, you need to start doing so and consider your own debt to Him.

Making a Difference

Somehow we need to show the world that science is the silly human nonesense that it is. This will only happen as we who understand that this is so, speak up. This blog has been my way of doing so for the past 8 years or so. Actually, this blog sort of chronicles my own transition from a strong faith in science along side my Christian faith to a realization of just how much of a problem science really is for humanity.

At one time I actually thought that scientists and intellectuals were adamant against Christianity because they were ignorant of the wealth of criticism of Darwin’s theory that is out there from Creationists and other critics of evolution. Now I know the truth about the fact that so many die hard evolutionists know the creationist arguments quite well. Well at least the way they learn about them is often 3rd hand from collegues and the media and book reviews, etc.  Oh, how many times have I heard the lame excuses like, “they also say the earth is 5,000 years old”, or “those people don’t really understand evolution”, and such.

I have no idea how old the earth is- and neither does anyone else on this turf to be quite truthful! If you throw out uniformitarianism as a valid assumption, the earth could be just about any number of earth rotations. (I even had one fellow argue with me on a science forum against my supposition that the earth must have changed it’s time of rotation  or daylength quite a bit if it has been around for even a million years.) But, this is the kind of irrational thinking that permeates the sciences these days. True the earth is big and massive, but I can assure you that it is subject to external forces even as we speak.

I am determined to remind us all that science is a human endeavor and as such subject to all of the foibles that come out of fear, confusion, pride, egotism and on and on. Science puts mankind in the same position that Adam and Eve were in due to the lure of the tree, “of the knowledge of good and evil” that is falling into the trap of the serpent, Satan and believing all his lies. He hates us and sees us as scabs that are offered a place in God’s Holy Kingdom in Heaven where He has been rejected and will be sent into eternal flames. Science is the culmination of man’s rebellion against his Creator. An organization that attempts to push Christianity and any respect for our Creator completely out of humanity, as if it really could.

In hypocricy they may say that religion is OK, but that’s only as long as you make it subject to the scientific community. I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ! I am ashamed of the way many Christians pander to science as though it is some great thing. It isn’t, though it could be and that’s the sad part. If it tossed evolution (common decent, not simple adaptation) and gave credit to our Creator and acknowledged that we really have no clue about the events of the distant past, there may begin to show some real usefulness to us.

If they won’t study God’s Creation from that perspective, it’s up to us that know the truth about “origins” or how living creatures got here. We don’t need anyone’s approval but the Creator Himself! Peerpressure review is garbage. Journal publication and degrees in this and that is no substitute for real logic and reasoning without sci-political trappings.

I am in an unusual position perhaps in that I know the “theory of evolution” inside and out and that has helped me see thru it as well. I really think that most people still respect the theory more out of respect of the scientific consensus rather than because they really understand the concept. It really is a case of misplaced trust and naivite. I know because I’ve been there. Now, I’m taking a stand.

Why is Science Rubbish?

Science came about as the result of the knee-jerk efforts of Thomas Huxley and his cohorts in the X-Club. As a result of the reformation of the “church” that was rather more or less dominated by the Roman christianized form of polytheism, the church had reached an all time low in credibility in the public eyes. Huxley saw “evolution” as just the wedge he needed to elimate Christianity and other religions from the face of the earth. He saw the church and it’s teachings as standing in the way of “scientific discovery and progress” or something like that and brought together some of his like-minded friends into the so called X-Club so that plans could be made for the “advancement of science” as the replacement for the church as the guiding light of the world, so to speak.

Since this new “savior” of the world would have to be hard at work converting the masses and leading the flock on to all the greener pastures, it would only be fitting that they get paid and paid well.  When Huxley took over the “Royal Society” he was really able to get his crusade against the church and Christianity into high gear and we see that momentum has been maintained to this day. Has this battle been fought with swords and bullets? No, the battle has been for credibility and trust.

Huxley had fallen to the same basic blunder that the so called, “higher critics” had fallen to. The notion that “ALL THINGS” that are in effect in the universe have always been so throughout the past and will continue to be into the future. The assumption that all “physical laws” are the sole governing forces that exist and are unchanging and universal. The “higher critics” thought that they were in a position to criticize the Holy Bible just as though it was any other piece of literature. They thought that since miracles did not conform to this notion of “uniformitarianism” as they call it and so must be explained away in some manner. Darwin bought into this and so the only way he could account for the life on this planet was to dream of means of putting life here without disturbing those allmighty physical laws.

He thought, hmm living things adapt…. that adaptation can cause changes….them thar changes can accumulate over eons of time to produce whole new forms of life. There you have it, piece of cake!! Sadly, people believed it and Huxley sort of beleived it though he refused to consider himself an atheist.

Anyway, so here you have this monstrosity of an organization that is determined to interpret all of nature and the universe thru darwinian, uniformitarian eyes and impose itself as the worlds ONLY reliable source of truth. But, as you can see, it all rides on the fallicy that there are real “laws of nature” that are eternal and unchangable. If there was even one single “blip” in any of those so-called “laws” an any moment in history. Yes, that’s right, any instance at any point ever then science  and all of its information, discoveries, etc. come into question.

If the “laws” come into question, so does the credibility of everything that we call, “science”. Darwin’s “origin” story becomes just another dubious creation story that makes entertaining fiction, but has no basis in reality. Finches might adapt and change in minor ways, but we know they will never be anything but finches unless they are reengineered by someone that knows what they are doing. No natural process has the ability to turn a finch into a chicken. The fact that such creatures exist are testimony to the fact that the “laws” of nature are at best trends that exist or appear to exist at the present, but nothing should be assumed beyond that.

Suddenly, all of nature returns to its rightful place, Mystery! What ever you say about it is once again to be viewed as merely a guess. So, if science is knowledge, and we can’t trust any of that knowledge. What good is it?

New Birds in Town!

Birds are such amazing creatures! There are so many shapes and sizes and COLORS! Wow, this year we have been blessed with several tiny blue jewels that at first I thought were blue birds. But, they are too small and a much deeper blue color. They must be indigo buntings. Just as cardinals are redder then red, and Baltimore orioles are oranger then orange, these little guys are bluer then blue!

indigo bunting
How Blue can Blue Be?

Not only are they impressive in appearance, they also are full of energy and motion. Being set free from Darwin’s depressingly ignorant fables I can really start to appreciate the vast wealth of wisdom and artistry that all these wonderful creatures represent.  As my Lord Jesus says, “But, wisdom is justified of all her children.”

Thank you Jesus for the fantastic things you have made for us to enjoy and learn from!!

It’s All About Trust

It’s been about 35 years since I began to put my trust in my Creator whom I don’t see with my eyes. In that process I’ve come to realize more and more that He is trustworthy in everything. You see, He made everything and sustains us, He knows us completely and still loves us, He earns our trust and He expect us to trust Him based on His faithfulness, graciousness, holiness and love. He, “demonstrated His love towards us in that while we were yet sinners He died for us”. Everything He does for each of us is way above and beyond!

But, even after I began to trust Christ and learn the Scriptures, I was also holding on to this thing we call, “science” as a high standard, perhaps not quite as high because “science” was based on the premise that the universe created itself be natural processes. As time went on, I realized that my great “confidence” in “science” was misplaced. The more I’ve trusted my Creator, the less trust I have in “science” since I can see more clearly that “science” is just man’s limited perspective on things, whereas the Scriptures reveals our actual Creator’s view of things.

Man's biggest machine to do what???

In the final analysis I must conclude that there is no comparison between the two. For the Scripture also says, “man at his very best state is altogether vanity”. Just look at the great, “Hadron Collider”. It takes the most gigantic machine ever made by mankind to try to make sense of such a tiny thing as a subatomic particle! 17 miles of underground electromagnets and superconductors at a cost of billions just to crack open a few protons? Why? To excuse the ineptness of the “big bang theory” and such? Is it just another way we express our distrust in our Creator, or worse yet, demonstrate our contempt for Him?

Whatever it is, I’ve learned that it’s best to distance myself from the mess…

So Many Amazing Things

I could continue to flog a dead horse. But, what’s the point? Evolution is an embaressment to me in that I at one time took the notion seriously. And even after leaving that mess behind, I still took science seriously.

As you start to look at living things as carefully engineered, introduced and sustained works of art you start to understand Whom we are going to answer to.

Tiger Beetle
Tiger Beetle Ready for Action!

 Take a close look at a tiger beetle some time. You’ll see that not all beetles are the same. These little fellows look like track stars in there dazzling candy apple blue or green warm up suits. They can outpace any hiker that cares to get too close with their quickness and agility on foot or on the wing. I doubt that you’ll ever manage to catch on by hand and you’ll no doubt regret it if you do. That they exist testifies to an immesurable feat of engineering, skill and wisdom!

How about the cat? She has a body as flexible as a wet noodle and yet stealth, speed and the reflexes of , well, hmm, what can it be compared with? They are apex predators and yet symbolic of grace and beauty and in so many odd ways wonderfully unique in the animal kingdom. Somehow they manage to tear apart their prey with a confusing sort of daintyness.

Bobcat
The Powerful Bobcat

Look at the horse and try to imagine a more perfectly engineered creature for human transport. His size, power and temperment are a perfect match, not to mention the mane to hold on to and the back that is just right for comfortable saddles and long head that steers so well and his mouth accepts the bit. How extremely thoughtful our Creator was when He engineered the horse!!!

What about the tick and the mosquito that constantly remind us that we are flesh? All those stars in the sky serve simply as lights and yet so many are actually galaxies so far away that we can only see how they were some remote time in the past. Even so, Jesus taught that, “heaven and earth will pass away and yet my words shall not pass away.” The moon goes around the earth constantly in order to wash the seas clean by the tides and help sea currents on their ways.

The clock is ticking on this universe and one day it will be over. It will have served its purpose and we will all face the next chapter of our existence. Our Creator has done everything needed to prepare a way for us to be saved and that Way is Jesus His own Son.

Thoughts on the Nye – Ham Evolution Debate

Mr. Nye definitely expressed his huge faith in the institution we call, “science”. One of the main things he harped on over and over was the predictive ability of modern theories from science over the Biblical perspective. The Bible gives a very brief summary of how the God of Heaven went about creating everything at that time which was, “In the beginning”. It gives us the information we need to know and that’s all. All science does is observe the present and extrapolates forwards and backwards basing everthing on what we see happening now. Science predicts that what is happening now will continue in the future. Well at least as far as we have been able to observe and for the past 100 years that thinking seems to have worked for the most part. In the same breath he insists that the universe is many billions of years old and expects us to respect the assertion of his beloved “science” that that 100 years of observed natural processes must be applied to all the rest of that span of time!

Ham resisted that notion entirely and reminded the audience that observable processes can only be applied to the here and now and to extend them beyond the observed period requires faith in multitudes of assumptions. Faith in the Biblical perspective only requires have less faith in science and more trust in our Creator to give us the account of what really happened and what none of us was able to observe first hand.

Nye preached faith in science and Ham preached faith in our Creator and His account of how we got here. It amazes me that after all this time since Huxley and the X-Club started their efforts to turn the world away from the Bible and our Creator, science is still harping on the same line. Science is better than the Bible because it is man-centered and managable intellectually. The Bible predicts that man has been, is, and will continue to be  fallible and selfish and generally doesn’t have a clue.  The apish enterprise we call, “science” has effectively proven that these Biblical teachings hold true. Maybe that is an unfair comparison for the apes seem to know their place better than we.

“Man at his very best state is altogether vanity…”
