5 of the Worst Theories of Science

The more I’ve thought about science as being rebellion against our Creator, the more obvious the goofy claims appear. Take for example cosmology.

1. Condensation of gases to spontaneously generate stars and solar systems. Reality- gases don’t condense in space, they disperse. That’s what nebulae are most likely, regions of thin gaseous atmosphere in space lit up by star particle emissions as they are dispersing.

2. Life will evolve on any supportive planet. Once again “evolution” is made out to be some sort of creator god. Remember ‘science’ doesn’t allow their creator to have intelligence which is clearly needed to accomplish a feat like that!

Modern biology relys heavily on goofy theories.

3. Neutral Evolution- how do you evolve stuff that would require totally obsurd transitional stages like feathers on birds? Hmm! You can’t have the poor birds running around with useless quills looking like porcupines. So you say that the feather producing organs evolved first and didn’t actually grow feathers until they could be produced in a “selective” form to benefit the creature.  Reality show that feathers were well thought out designs and beautifully engineered!

4. Ape-Man common ancestory- Once again since “science” says that nature has no intrinsic intelligence and hence engineering capability there is no possible means to rework apes to produce speech and make engineers and scientists out of them. It’s more likely that they represent segments of the crumbling human genome. Without the Creator’s protection, entropy will continue to corrupt our genome. To that extent? We don’t know.

5. Evolution in General- the magical “uncreator”. Without intelligence, meditation or prethought, this theory expresses human ignorance to the fullest. The wonderful spontaneous generation of all living things by mutation and natural selection. “Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat!     PRESTO!” “Wait a minute, let me run over it first!”

For me, when it comes to science, all bets are off!

What is Faith?

Several of my friends at work have faith in the lottery and they pay out money to buy lottery tickets. I have a good idea how the lottery works and have no faith in it. Money can buy things, but cannot bring peace of mind. Quite the opposite is true for the lottery. Once you become wealthy, everyone wants a piece of you!  No, don’t care for the lottery at all! But, people that “faithfully” buy their weekly/daily lottery tickets are demonstrating their faith in the lottery.

“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Faith seems to form a mindset and a “comfort zone”.  Science has become a major guiding force in this society. It’s become a religous institution like none other. Though it is faith based, it strongly resists being labelled as such. The belief system is not new. It goes back to the ancient Greek philosophers and perhaps even before that. The theology is pantheistic and veiws god as being in all of nature giving it the power to create itself. In the modern form the term “origins” is used to mask the religious nature of this belief system.

Paradoxically, this strange diety is presented as non-intelligent and passive to the physical laws that dictate its activities. I suppose that is so that their diety can be ignored as non-existent or non-consequential, thus placing the scientists themselves as dictators of a new age of religion-free humanity.

Human pride is a funny thing. It puffs us up and makes us think we are in charge of our lives, when we are actually becoming slaves to our fictional imagined greatness. Once pride takes over, it doesn’t relinquish control easily. For those that lack a real sense of self-worth and depend on social acceptance and admiration, the lose of status can mean depression and perhaps suicidal thoughts and self-medication. The fact that we have been carefully and lovingly created and gently cared for and sustained has been erased perhaps not completely, but more or less forgotten in the “age of science”.

Whether we decide to place our faith in our Creator and Sustainer, Christ Jesus will not change the way things are. We are fearfully and wonderfully made! Our bodies were engineered and assembled in our mom’s belly by a master craftsman with loving care. The process is so intricate and controlled that it appears to happen on its own. Information for its construction is stored mainly on the genetic material from both parents. We know a little bit about how the process works, and there is an illusion of autonomy since it appears to be engineered to operate largely on its own.

Jesus taught that the sparrow doesn’t fall to the ground without its Creator’s knowledge. Nature was engineered to be a vast tutor on the artistry and devotion of our Creator to help us understand what kind of person He Is. Science has become a figment of human pride and rebellion against the reality of our existence and the love of our Creator extended to us.

It has take me many years to finally part ways with it and to place my faith where it ought to be. It’s still a work in process and Christ sweeps the prideful science cobbwebs from my heart and mind. But, I’m glad the process is under way and I can once again understand my existence.

Reality and Science

People in the world of science spend a lot of time analyzing stuff and trying to figure things out. The whole concept of  scientific inquiry depends of a physical world operating under the current set of conditions. There are a wide range of assumptions that this all depends on. It looks at how things operate in the present and assume that nothing has or will change, or even can! Things like the speed of light and the conservation of energy are perceived to be reliable assumptions. But, we have no way to prevent  them from altering at any given moment.

We take many such things for granted since we don’t see them changing. But, are they can they, do they? All we can tell is what we perceive and others have observed and recorded. The reality is very different. The physical laws have a stability that is maintained deliberately and they reflect the power, majesty and grace of their Creator. But, we must always remember that at any moment these properties “nature” can be altered or suspended. Indeed, when we die they do and we will need a new body in order to stand before our Maker. Such an event would not be possible in this body of flesh and blood.

The Bible is the only reliable source of information about the Creator and His creation. Yes, it was written down by men and passed down by men. But, just as the Great Engineer of all thing has sustained the universe for so many years, so has the Lord Jesus provided us with the Bible as a view of the universe and mankind through the eyes of its author.

Many years ago I worked on an a truck assembly line. Soon after I became a believer, I started bringing a New Testament with me into the paint booth where I sprayed rustproofing on the insides of doors and body panels. I would get a little ahead of the conveyor sometimes and take a moment to read a few verses. One day I was really struggling with getting an understanding of my place in God’s world and I asked Him to help me and at that moment the assembly line halted! I thought, Hmm! It occasionally would pause for a moment or 2 for various reasons. So, I stepped over and opened the New Testament that was covered with grey rustproof. It opened to Psalm 39 (this New Testament included Psalms and Proverbs):
Ps 39 

I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me. I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred. My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I with my tongue, LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am. Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah. Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them. And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee. Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish. I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst it. Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thine hand. When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah. Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were. O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.” 

I finished, layed down the book and the assembly line started back up. I had an exact and detailed answer for my question and it had me in tears as the reality of Christ’s presence in the paint booth sunk into my heart. This One that died for me and death couldn’t hold him, has the final say on all things in this universe and the one to come had heard me and answered me directly! That’s the reality that comes with being one of His disciples. “He works all things for good, for those that trust Him and are the called according to His purpose.”

I hope you believe on the Lord Jesus! If not, why not start…
