God's Gifts and God's Gift

The evolutionary story of man's history tells us that it took man tens of thousands of years to figure out he could farm crops for himself. Yet, today we know that some termites, ants and ambrosia...

"Creeps", "Jerks" and "Punks on Librium"

The Creation Moments group on Facebook is filled with interesting discussions … and an equal number of interesting people. Today's guest blogger is artist and author Philip Snow, who responded to the following question: When talking to evolutionists and atheists, Christians too often spend all their time defending what they believe against a barrage of attacks. If we want to turn the tables, go on the offensive, and bring up subjects that will upset their apple-cart, what are some good things we can say or ask?

There are at least FOUR IMPOSSIBILITIES that I usually try to talk about: [1] The impossibility that a Random Big Bang in Nothingness could produce anything coherent, let alone the incredibly ordered cosmos, heavenly bodies, life and love, etc. [2] The impossibility that life could come from non-life, an ignorant superstition disproven scientifically by Louis Pasteur hundreds of years ago. [3] The impossibility that slime could turn into people by trillions of genetic mistakes, which are 99.9% destructive or at best neutral. [4] The impossibility that all this could happen without leaving an indisputable "Missing Link", when billions are needed for the some 20 million life forms on the planet today.

I also like to point out that each new, Babylonian-ish theory of Evolution contradicts the previous one!

[1] CREEPS: Traditional Darwinism with its completely fantasized squillions of "finely graded transitions" … although that should make it impossible to separate anything "specially"!

[2] JERKS: Gould and Eldredge's Punctuated Equilibrium [aka "Punks on Librium"] – things change too quickly to record in the fossils, or in all those convenient geological gaps, but which was only invented to explain away "the trade secret of evolution" [Gould] – the complete lack of "Missing Links"!

[3] EVO-DEVO - Evolutionary Developmental Biology (with the emphasis on Mental) – NO CREEPS "finely graded chain", NO JERKS evidence of rapid change – so what the bleep can we come up with now!? ANSWER: Do some actual real science for a change! Discover the wonderful CREATIONIST truth that everything is made from the same genetic blueprint!

I like Philip Snow.

I saw the most bizarre posting by an evolutionist the other day in defense of abiogenesis. He claimed that life comes from nonliving material and this is clearly established. Where and when was it established? All experiments to that effect have failed. Besides this, any experiment a human might contrive requires design, so how are you going to replicate randomness and chance? Just supposing somehow a scientist could get the building blocks of life from nonliving material, it still only indicates that intelligence must be involved. Of course, with many scientists, their intelligence can be pretty low, but there must be a modicum of intelligence involved to set up even such a ridiculous experiment. So they just negated their study altogether by being involved in it. All they can ever prove is intelligent design.

Talk about creeping ... evolutionists are always creeping up on you with statements about supposition that are treated as fact. For example, they say that they derive facts from the fossil record, but what they're really doing is interpreting the fossil record to fit their theory. They would never admit that the evidence points toward a young earth and a global Flood.

Thanks for your encouraging comments - It's actually extremely tiring to try and debate all the stubborn, often God-hating irrationalists. But especially Christians who actually think God would use such a cruel, wasteful, inefficient, mindless, bloody and prolonged 'millions' of years of suffering and death, including infanticide and fratricide and every other form of blood-thirsty abomination, and then sit back and say of His 'Creation' - 'Very Good!. Time for a millions-of-years Day off, now!' But don't expect any rest from all this bloodletting......'

Thank God that's not my God.....

[Even 'aetheists' like HG Wells, Julian Huxley and Richard 'Blind GeneFakir' Dawkins realise that it is ALL THE BIBLE OR NONE - take away a literal Genesis and you have no basis for the doctrine of the Cross & Redemption, and a '2nd Adam', Jesus/Yeshua - dying for a 'mythical' 1st Adam! And, of course, that '2nd Adam', like His apostles, ALWAYS quoted Genesis etc as real, recent history.]

Whether a Christian is talking to an atheist, an evolutionist, a Muslim, a Jehovah's Witness, et.al., we must do it with conviction, kindness, boldness, and love. We must remember that they aren't rejecting us, but they are rejecting Jesus Christ and we must act in a manner that correctly represents Jesus; with knowledge, wisdom, understanding, insight, and proper judgment.

I think you mean, "Thank God that's not my [g]od." Sorry to be an english-freak but I feel like a fellow creationist like yourself might appreciate the establishment that only our one true God deserves to have his name capitalized.

Atheists love to say that God is hateful and bloodthirsty, but if you ask them if they've read the WHOLE Bible, they have to admit they haven't. They usually get defensive and say that they've read some of it. Sure. They don't even know God. How can anyone afford to reject God without even making the most minimal effort getting to know him? They spend hours on frivolous pursuits, but never bother to know their Creator. They say they are scientific and base their decisions on empirical evidence, but obviously they just jump to conclusions based on hearsay and they never bother to do their research. If they did, they would know that God is full of compassion, grace, and truth.

Psalm 86:15 - But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, long suffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.

I think we far too often forget who we are arguing with. They tend to be atheist first and evolutionist second. I know i myself fall into the trap of thinking I've won the battle when they resort to name-calling, but I seem to forget that my goal is not to win minds but to win souls. No one comes to accept Genesis as fact without true love of God and -unless they are orthodox Jews- Christ.

On the other hand, I can't even express my encouragement from sites like this one. I'm a high-school student who once believed in theistic evolution but was persuaded by facts and ultimately God that I was on the wrong side of the debate. Im glad that many people like yourself, AiG and CRI have been willing to defend the faith with unchallenged reason. It makes me see how much God is willing to defend his own truth.

And for those of you who may be doubters out there, I invite you to experience the gift of the Holy Spirit. Not through signs and wonders but through the joy of knowing Christ and the wonderful plethora of emotions that he brings.

tell us more, Phil. tell us more.
