Why Evolution is a Hoax at Best

Evolution as a theory of origins completely humiliates science. It makes a creator god out of mutation and adaptation and so-called “natural selection”. It insists that all of the diversity of life on earth is the result of a designer that must (by the declaration of the US Supreme Court) be taught in public schools as having an IQ of ZERO! Evolution as a theory of origins or in other words as a “creation story” stands in the face of everything we know about how complex things are brought into being. Whether it be a whicker basket or a space shuttle, and certainly something an order of magnitude more complex and efficient like a living cell, you will always need someone with adequate skills and resources to put it together. A basket requires a certain level of skill and intelligence, a space shuttle was the result of a team of the world’s best engineers with proven intelligence, a living cell cannot come into existence without the required skill and intelligence! No matter how you try to slice and dice mutation and adaptation, without the required intelligence or decision making skills, and resources required, a living reproducing cell (much less a…

What’s Going On?

A popular singer wrote a song once with that name. He wrote it at a time when there was lots of protesting about civil rights and the war in Vietnam. I’ve listened to it many times since it has a James Jamerson bass part in it and I play bass guitar and like hearing him play. But, one of the lines in the lyrics say, “we’ve got to find a way…”. This is the way that I am going to tell you about! Most of you realize that we are part of a created world and we are here by His doing. We are not our own! There are others that are convinced otherwise and I suppose that I was in that position as a college student many years ago. I can only hope and pray that you might reconsider as I did. But, those of you that understand our status as created beings with futures that are in that Creator’s hands, I want to let you know that there is a fantastic and wonderful future for anyone that choses to embrace Jesus Christ as their Savior personally. That future starts here in this life in perhaps somewhat humble but…

Looking Through a Glass Darkly

US public tv has been running a series of new shows about the universe. It chronicles the “advances” in our understanding of the universe. The “big bang”, the Hubble Telescope, “dark energy” and “dark matter” and stuff like that. First there was the “red shift” and the “expanding universe”, then there was the “big bang idea”, then the establishment for the “age” of the universe at “13.7 Billion Years” based on the supposed accelleration of objects out there and so forth. They make is sound as if everything has been figured out! The wonderful achievements of man with celebrations and award ceremonies! Now, there are the challenges of “dark energy and dark matter” to tackle. The space telescope has revealed a vast and complex universe most of which is a visual artifact from many millions of years in the past. We have no way of actually telling if any of it is still really there if it’s much further out past our own little galaxy, the “Milky Way”. In fact, we have only just recently managed to send a probe out beyond this tiny solar system. We think we know so much about the universe and yet as this lonely…
