Nobel Laureate Suggests Spirit!
Many scientists have rejected the idea that man has a spirit - that we are no more than simply material organisms. After all, they reason, man evolved, but a non-material thing like a spirit cannot evolve.
Evolution is completely materialistic in its outlook. Nineteenth century promoters of evolution admitted that they devised the idea of naturalistic evolution to get rid of the idea of a non-material, spiritual dimension.
That's why it is noteworthy that, in 1983, Nobel prize-winning scientist George Wald announced to the scientific community that he had found evidence of a non-material aspect to life. Wald called this non-material part of life consciousness, and concluded that our consciousness exists outside of space and time.
Evolutionary scientists quickly treated Wald as a heretic. Suddenly evolutionists attacked one of their own with the same ferocity they had previously reserved for creationists. They offered no argument against Dr. Wald's science - they simply refused to even look at his evidence because they just knew that he had the wrong conclusion.
The lesson we learn from this is that evolution is a faith - a faith that competes with Christianity. Another lesson is that there is real scientific evidence that supports the Christian view of life and reality.
