“Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.”
While doing some research on how the non-venomous hognose snake is able to mimic the behaviors of the deadly rattlesnake, we happened to come across a website with an interesting article on biological mimicry.
According to the website, “Biological mimicry occurs when a group of organisms – the mimics – have evolved to share common perceived characteristics with another group – the models – through the selective action of a signal-receiver – or dupe.” In this instance, the hognose snake is the mimic, the rattlesnake is the model, and the creature that missed out on having the hognose snake for lunch is the dupe.
They go on to say that mimicry in most cases is advantageous to the mimic and harmful to the dupe. With this in mind, I would like you to consider the proposition that evolutionists themselves are “mimics”. They mimic the “model” scientists who deal with real science – that is, those involved in empirical, observable and repeatable science.
Meanwhile, these mimics in white lab coats get paid handsome salaries and receive government grant money, so they enjoy all the advantages of appearing to be scientists engaged in real science. At the same time, however, they are harming other people – the dupes – by getting them to believe a lie. Worse yet, they make it easy for the dupes to abandon belief in God.
In a world that fails to distinguish between real science and a godless philosophy masquerading as science, let us all be diligent in teaching others how to tell the two apart.
Heavenly Father, I pray that You will continue to give Your people wisdom and discernment so that we won’t be fooled into exchanging the truth for a lie. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
