Oh No! The Continent Is Sinking!

Back in 1974, a humor magazine for scientists - The Journal of Irreproducible Results - carried a delightful story called "National Geographic, the Doomsday Machine."* In it, author George H. Kaub asserts: "This continent is in the gravest danger of following legendary Atlantis to the bottom of the sea. No natural disaster, no overpowering compounding of pollutions or cataclysmic nuclear war will cause the end. Instead, a seemingly innocent monster created by man, nurtured by man, however as yet unheeded by man, will doom this continent to the watery grave of oblivion."

What is this "monster" he is talking about? The millions of back issues of National Geographic magazine that subscribers never throw away! Since each issue of National Geographic weighs around two pounds, the author contends that the continent will someday sink under the weight of all that paper! He concludes with this dire warning: "PUBLICATION AND DISTRIBUTION OF THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE MUST BE IMMEDIATELY STOPPED AT ALL COSTS!"

While the article is genuinely funny, we're not laughing at some of the equally ridiculous ideas that many scientists really do believe in - like man-made global warming, alternate universes, and especially neo-Darwinian evolution. These so-called "scientific ideas" are absolutely preposterous, having no foundation in scientific fact.

Here at Creation Moments, we wonder when the science establishment will wake up to reality and realize that much of the world is laughing - not at articles in The Journal of Irreproducible Results - but at them!

As science becomes so advanced that it is now possible to study creation at the molecular level and yet explore the reaches of the space through telescopes, it seems incredible that anyone could believe the order of the universe came about by random chance and time. Evolutionists have no explanation for how we got here in the first place, and their explanation about what happened afterward is a hobgoblin's tale. We never see species evolving into other kinds. What we see is life within the order Jesus placed it, and that life more abundantly. The Bible agrees with real, observable science. Evolution is just a story that's been spun out in a yarn more fantastic than that of Rumpelstiltskin.

This reminds me of the story of Chicken Little who cried: "The sky is falling, the sky is falling!" Many people today haven't learned that they can't believe everything they're told by the so-called experts of today. The only true and reliable source of information is God, but you'll find that quite a few Americans think that He should be thrown out in favor of fickle fantasies about evolution and global doom.

Well, they have one thing right. The world is doomed ... without its Savior. Jesus Christ is the only hope of salvation. As long as our society prefers to make fun of him rather than obey him, we're sunk.

How true. How much we miss by being focused on the rutless rather than the moment. SOme of the best moments are when we just learn to be still and listen, whether its to our inner self or to Gods leading. Its too bad we miss so many moments with our busy schedules.
