Scientism And It’s Problems

I love it when people engrossed in Scientism say they only need science because science will eventually fix everything and answer all our problems. They will go on to put down and ridicule believers in God and his writings in the Bible stating how can you believe in what is written down in an “old book written by desert peasants?” Let’s look at some of the past failures of science and ask them ” You put faith/trust in something with this track record? Here we go:
“Piltdown Chicken, Chernobyl, Mercury Fillings, Thalidomide, Hole in the Ozone Layer, Global Cooling, Global Heating, Darwinian Evolution, Iridium, Silicone Implants, Y2K, MTBE Contamination, DMSO, the Fen-phen Fiasco, Over Use of Antibiotics, Aspartame, Saccharine, and Lucy for a slice of examples of vacillation and failures of science.

As for a “dusty book written by peasants”, there are 45+ Prophecies that have been fulfilled and plenty of examples of the bible speaking about so called “scientific discoveries” of modern times in that “dusty book”! For example: The round shape of the earth, earth is suspended in nothing, the stars are innumerable, the existence of valleys in the seas, the hydrologic cycle, concept of entropy and many more!

Don’t get me wrong, I am a lover of science and believe that science is a gift from God in many cases. Science also exposes the wonders of creation. Scientism does have major problems and I believe the biggest problem is that the Gospel is forgotten in the mix.

Isaiah 44: 6-8
6 “Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts:
‘I am the first and I am the last,
And there is no God besides Me

Bill Nye: “We Came From Mars”

Bill Nye the pseudoscientist claims that the origins of life on earth came from Mars! Let’s think about that for a second. He denies that we came from Adam and Eve but coming from Mars is a better position? Let’s entertain that thought for a moment; Mars has an environment that Man cannot survive in let alone any living organism that has been yet to be discovered, and yet the makings of humanity came from that kind of situation? Also, if life was ever found on Mars, where would it have originated? Again “Life coming from Non-life”?

Oh how (pseudo)science fights God, at every turn and looks for Government Grants and outside funding!

Why Does God Allow Suffering? Tony Costa

This is a question that athiests, non-Christians and even Christian believers ponder. Why does God allow suffering?
This is Tony Costa on 100 Huntley Street explaining as best he can as to why? His book “The Reason For God” is one that I have on my to-read-list.

FIVE APOLOGETIC ISSUES THAT CHRISTIANS MUST BE PREPARED TO DEFEND

Here is another blog I would like to have people read. I found the “FIVE APOLOGETIC ISSUES THAT CHRISTIANS MUST BE PREPARED TO DEFEND” particularly well done and thought to provoke.

http://danstory.net/blog/

As Christian Apologists, we must defend God’s Truth and answer the skeptic’s as good Ambassadors for Christ.

100 Reasons Why Evolution Is Stupid!

I am unapologetic in stating that Dr. Kent Hovind is a thorn in the side of evolutionists and atheists. And I am also not apologetic on posting his lecture series and as well do not believe in his “King James Only” position.

God Bless you Kent! Our prayers go out to you sir!

Charles Darwin And The Nonsense Of Atheism

As Richard Dawkins the high priest of the belief of atheism loves to point out that Charles Darwin was an atheist, Darwin only became an atheist after the death of his daughter Annie in 1851, just eight years before his first publication of “The Origin of Species”. You will note though that atheism really had little to do with the bankrupt evolutionary theory. The atheism started to hit high gear when T.H. Huxley had taken the wheel. Huxley had a political agenda that was to rally against the religious authority that was in the British education system.

Evolution as a theory was around since the days of Saint Augustine, when he produced an exegesis on the Book of Genesis as he proposed that creation was “over a length of time that he dare not conjecture” (1). The idea of evolution was not totally rejected by the Church back then obviously! The theory of evolution predated Darwin; Pierre-Louis Maupertius  wrote:

“Could we not explain in this manner (fortunate change) how the multiplication of the most dissimilar species could have sprung from just two individuals? They would owe their origin to some fortuitous productions in which the elementary parts deviated from the order maintained in the parents. Each degree of error would have created a new species, and as a result of repeated deviations the infinite diversities of animals that we see today would have come about” (2)

There was and still is this battle that the evolutionist atheists are fighting against Christianity (not “religion”…Christianity!) as the atheist wants to believe “they” are a cosmic accident that just “happened”, then accountability for their actions goes out the window! Besides why would anyone believe what they say? Their brains may not have evolved that far, as to say what they say is indeed correct? By their own words they claim they are just a bag of chemicals. I wouldn’t trust them from that standpoint alone!

“Atheism turns out to be too simple. If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out it has no meaning: Just as. if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never know it was dark” C.S. Lewis (3)

Proverbs 1: 7 (NIV)

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
    but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
