In June’s eBlast, we focused in on the religion of atheism. The atheist (“a” = no; “theos” = God) is the man or woman who dogmatically proclaims that there is no God. The Bible tells us in Psalm 14:1 “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.” It is interesting that the Bible proclaims the fool says in his heart; not his lips that there is no God. The atheist just reveals his immense ignorance when he opens his mouth!
Without exception, I have found that all atheists are evolutionists. The fallacy of evolution requires more faith to believe in it’s ludicrous premises than it does to believe in God. Evolution completely violates the Second Law of Thermodynamics; The Law of Entropy, which states that everything is moving from a state of order to disorder. Everything is wearing out. My blue jeans, my car, my fence, everything is wearing out. The earth is slowing down, the sun is burning out, stars are dying, etc. The theory of evolution (which is just that, a theory), diametrically opposes the Second Law of Thermodynamics and states that man is continuously evolving and getting better. Over the years, I have never once found an atheist who was not an evolutionist. Is it any wonder, for if he doesn’t believe in God, how can he believe in the intelligent design of all creation?
Evolution is a direct attack on the foundation of Christianity. The Bible tells us, if the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do. Evolution dogmatically proclaims that intelligent design had nothing to do with creation, only chance and circumstance. As we discussed in June’s eBlast, design requires a Designer. When I go to downtown Orlando and see all of the buildings, I don’t think, “Wow, through millions of years of time, chance, and succession, the winds swirled sand and metal particles all around just happened to form these incredible structures. That would be ludicrous! I immediately would think, “Wow, I wonder who made this?” If I had five rows of ten apples; each row perfectly lined-up on my front porch, I wouldn’t say, “Honey, come here, you won’t believe this! Over the night, a tremendous tornado must have ripped through an apple grove in the state of Washington, sucked these apples off the trees all the way up into the Jetstream, and then placed them right here in five perfect rows on our front porch.” No, my first thought would be, “I wonder who put these here?” Why, because design requires a designer. Likewise, God has put His eternal Godhead on display by the incredible ingenuity all around us. From the complexity of a simple cell to the incredible beauty of a butterfly, the magnitude of His ingenuity is staggering to say the least.
Often we hear of the “missing link”. Over the years, millions of fossil remains have been found. The missing link is a fossil that has been found that is in a transition period. For example, finding a fish with legs; a dolphin with legs, etc. Out of the millions of fossils that have been uncovered, NOT ONE fossil has ever been found to be in the transition form. The only problem with the missing link is that it’s missing! A cockroach is a cockroach, a dog a dog, a fish a fish.
Yes, but what about all of the transitional forms of humans that they’ve found? What about Cro-Magnon Man? What about Neanderthal Man? What about all the others? Consider the following:
Lucy: Nearly all experts agree that Lucy was a 3 foot tall chimpanzee.
Heidelberg Man: Built from a jawbone that was conceded by many to be quite human.
Nebraska Man: Scientifically built up from one tooth, later found to be the tooth of an extinct pig.
Piltdown Man: The jawbone turned out to belong to a modern ape.
Peking Man: Supposedly 500,000 years old, but all evidence has disappeared.
Neanderthal Man: The first Neanderthal remains were found in France in 1908. Considered to be ignorant, ape-like, stooped and knuckle-dragging, much of the evidence now suggests that Neanderthal was just as human as us, and his stooped appearance was because of arthritis and rickets.
New Guinea Man: Dates back to 1970. This Species has been found in the region just north of Australia.
Cro-Magnon Man: One of the earliest and best established fossils is at least equal in physique and brain capacity to modern man. Cro-Magnon man is indistinguishable from modern humans … so what’s the difference?
Modern Man: This genius thinks he evolved from a monkey.
