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.
