Say to your dying mom, without tear and emotion, Mama, you should go! You are weak and ill, you are a hindrance to the progressive evolution process. Your genes are weak. Let me carry the good genes to continue the evolutionary link. If you die now, less energy will be consumed. Your decomposed body actually can contribute to the next stage of random mutation.
Your mom got a heart attack and says, You are an animal!!
You then reply, We all are evolved from animals!!
On a true atheist 2:
If you are a true atheist, you should not:
Call 911 for a pick-pocket. You should say to yourself, Unfortunately, I am a weaker link, the theft is a stronger link. He deserves to be protected for stronger and more deceitful power to survive!
(BTW, love, compassion, considerate, ……blood donation etc. go against the law of Evolution survival of the fittest!)
How do we get from here to there: the insurmountable gap? (molecule to human)
·Old arguments: TIME, RANDOMNESS & CHANCE
·New argument: break up into millions or billions of steps in minute probabilities (Just break up into billions of steps in incremental inching up the slope of the evolutionary climb)
* It is a kin to MAGIC
* A millions or billions of insurmountable steps do not make an insurmountable step however miniscule to be surmountable!
What about conducting an experiment to test the existence of God. Let us divide sick people into 2 groups. One sick group pray to God and the other without prayers made.
If God exists, He answers prayers (pure assertion, however). If God does not exist, it takes one prayer unanswered in the group that prays to disprove His existence. People who pray did not recover from their sickness. Where is God?
There is the world of difference between natural causality and personal causality.
An example of natural, physical, chemical, mechanical, or impersonal, causality can be illustrated in the following: When temperature remains constant, the volume of a fixed mass of a gas decreases as the pressure increases, and it increases when the pressure decreases. If the pressure is kept constant (Boyles Law)
One sick child did not receive any help or gift in spite of its persistent quest. There are motive, desire, interest, care, foresight, judgment, reflection, involve in the multiplicity and complexity of other correlative factors why the parent does not attend to the request made by the sick child.
* God and Christ are not like gold and chemicals
* God and people are not like that of game and program
* Trust and communion are not like that of rust and combustion
* Love and song are not like that of light and soil
* Prayer and truth are not like that of pressure and temperature
The relationship between prayer and disease should not be over-emphasized or made into a test case for the proof on the existence of God under a scientific experiment.
1.The experiment (the double-blind? Studies) is too mechanical bothering more on formula of magic than faith in the Messiah Jesus Christ our Savior.
2.Our culture has the utilitarian bent to reduce spiritual reality into economic commodity or personal usability and beneficiality.
If God has to fit into our agreement, preference, convenience, schedule, and taste, then what God has spoken and done in His atonement, purpose, covenant, Sabbath and truth, would never arise or be realized in our knowledge of Him.
3.Whenever God is reduced to our human bidding, no longer is that kind of God the God of the Bible.
* We have set preconditions for what God can or cannot be or do. Would we believe there is such a God? Could we still believe that God is still who His is?
4.The Christ knows that the whole creation is under the curse of sin after the Fall of Adam and Eve. Thus, what is on the spiritual level should await for the complete redemption in the coming of Christ. (Romans 8:22-23)
5.The mark of a true Christian in prayer to God is Thy will be done. It is uttered in hope, confidence, peace, courage, assurance, and love of the Lord and not the spurning of words in defeat, helplessness, anger, or bitterness. (Matthew 26:42-46)
The question of the atheist on the existence of God in answering prayer can be argued from the prayer of Jesus Christ Himself both in the garden of Gethsemane and at the crucifixion. Did God exist to listen to the prayer of the Savior?
* The prayer of Jesus Christ was never on the existence of God nor on the care of God. It was not even on the purpose of God. The prayer of the Savior had to do with the eternal humiliation and the intense suffering of bearing the sins of the human race.
Christ is coming again! Believe and receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior.
He who knew no sin was made to bear our sins.
He was made to bear our sins, not made to sin. O what a Savior!
The heart or the eye is not something improbable in the theory of evolution because changes do not come by a single leap but by breaking the improbability up into small, manageable parts, smearing out the luck needed, going round the back of Mount Improbable and crawling up the gentle slopes, inch by million-year inch.
To the atheist, any espousal of a Designer would have to be intelligent and complicated beyond all imagining and complicated is just another word for improbableand therefore demanding of explanation.
1.But how about breaking the complication into parts in the creative works of God?
2.Why is it improbable to think of God since He is beyond all imagining when the atheist challenges us to dare to imagine beyond for the changes necessary in the theory of evolution?
3.Who has witnessed the infinitesimal progress or crawl by an inch in millions of years?
·How do we get from here to there: the insurmountable gap? [Mount Improbable]
·New argument of the atheist: just break up into billions of steps in incremental inching up the slope of the evolutionary climb?
4.By breaking up into millions of parts and imagining each step to the next as a millionth change of successful occurrence, we simply multiply the occurrence from improbable to impossible. But evolutionists argue from improbable to extremely improbable, and then by a blind leap of atheistic faith arrives at the likelihood of occurrence.
5.By breaking into parts, the atheist assumes the total purpose or overall function is still in view and known prior to the complete integration of functions.
·For example: A blind person might feel the elephants trunk for a fire hose, the tail for a rope, the ear for a giant leaf, and the knees for an old person with rough wrinkles. Would each person know each part as in the whole picture of an elephant without knowing or seeing the complete existence of an elephant?
·Knowing a part is far from knowing the whole in terms of total function and purpose.
·Imagine the simplest cell crawling up the improbable mountain and inching its way along millions of years along the slope and getting to the top as a multi-cellar biped creature, that is the incredible faith of the atheist and his theory of evolution!
6.What the atheist is asserting is that more time more likelihood of occurrence. Throw in chance and it would increase the likelihood of occurrence. Now, throw in the idea of breaking into millions of step or parts and the whole idea of a particular occurrence, according to the theory of evolution, would bound to occur. It is like saying, if we put a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters for a million years, some how the works of Shakespeare could be generated or maybe a work on the theodicy of nature.
·It is like the illustration of putting each part of an airplaneair pressure instrument, wheels, o-rings, bearings, turbine engines, black-box recorder, hydraulic systems, couplings, warning systems and lights, emergency doors, compressors, etcinto a huge contained and let it shake for millions of years and eventually a 747 airplane would be assembled. But that is not all.
·One has to break into much smaller composition such as rubber, metal, oil, fiber glass, copper So the illustration continues, we are to shake and mingle these materials for millions of years and let randomness, chance, and luck to from a fuel gauge, radar communication, air conditioning system, gyroscope, weather forecast instruments.
Why the theory of evolution based on minutely incremental development due to survival instinct had to face with many living things that possess attributes and abilities may beyond their merely instinctual survivability?
One physicist asks, we have certain skillsfor example, we can jump streams and catch falling appleswhich are necessary for getting by in the world, but why is it that we also have the ability to discern, for example, whats going on inside atoms, or inside black holes, these are completely outside the domains of everyday experience not necessarily for good Darwinian survival.
Human beings are endowed with far greater intelligence that just the survival level of existence. We are connected to God in the worship, work, walk, and wonder of life.
We cannot prove the non-existence of God just as we cannot disprove the existence of microscopically small teapot revolving around the Sun between Earth and Mars because, in this hypothetical example, the existence of the thing in questions is undetectable by any known means, and so the non-existence is impossible to prove.
Atheists boast of the unnecessary need to disprove fantastical claim such as the invisible, intangible, inaudible unicorn, or the flying spaghetti monster. Some atheists accept what seems to be Design and Intelligence in nature but explain it on the basics on evolutionary naturalism. Thus, there is Design but no need for the Designer.
Christians are not that stupid to fail in distinguishing what is of fantastical imagination and what is of factual imagination, the former being delusively improbable and the latter inferentially probable.
