There are a couple things, being quite relevant to topic, that need to be addressed before proceeding. One of those issues is the secular view of the Bible being a: myth, fairytale or just legend. Let’s proceed to this and think it through to fruition, shall we? Which of the two statements (sentences) below are true?
[Both of the abstracts below come from this,”The Ethics of Elfland.”]
I have never been able to understand where people got the idea that democracy was in some way opposed to tradition. It is obvious that tradition is only democracy extended through time.
Nay, the ordinary scientific man is strictly a sentimentalist. He is a sentimentalist in this essential sense, that he is soaked and swept away by mere associations. He has so often seen birds fly and lay eggs that he feels as if there must be some dreamy, tender connection between the two ideas, whereas there is none.
In reality, both of the statements are true, although most people (I’d assume) would loudly proclaim the former and not the latter to be true. Click on the link above to read the full article and then made a determination again… as this is (correctly) a challenge to stretch the horizons of what one might call perception! Once the question to how we might see things is cleared up we can proceed to ‘what’ we are looking at and ‘why’ it matters.
The other issue comes to what is considered science, or scientific in nature,… as it is the next challenge to how we might perceive something to be, either for or against, and it is found evaluating evidence. There are some very high profile scientists that are agnostic/atheists and have attempted to share their opinions (as fact… and unscientific) to support and sway others. Case in point, Bill Nye is but one such individual… where (today) scientific stoicism collides with new information. Bill would argue against creation citing the age of rocks, geology, as but one basis to draw a conclusion from. Let’s see what has come to light in this field and why a potential change is relevant!
We decide age of anything (for most scientific purposes) from radioisotope dating or through a mass spectrometer. One article challenges the secular view of accuracy claimed, using radioisotope dating, and wait… there are also other claims to bring questions more than answers. There is also Professor Timothy H. Heaton that challenges the method and means of measurement to radioisotope dating found here.
There is also the Law of Entropy, which goes against an expanding (stretching) universe in reality. From a book by John Sanford, entitled,”Genetic Entropy & the Mystery of the Genome,” is found by abstract this statement…
Sanford also explains that DNA is deteriorating so rapidly that it would have been flawless just a few thousand years ago. So Darwin’s idea that life forms become more complicated over time is exactly the opposite of what modern science observes. Dr Vern Bissell of Portland State U says that if the RATE findings (see below) are a nail in the coffin of evolution, Stanford’s book is a railroad spike.
and if Darwin could be wrong, something evolutionists rely on, then to question what we have been told and taught turns it on its very axis away from scientific results- being left unproven or an unprovable theory! There is then, as they might say in a court of law, questionable doubt.
I look at it this way… we don’t just find a Ferrari in the driveway, it had to be designed and created by someone, right?
As heard on Dr. James Dobson’s family talk, January 9th, 2018, download your copy to listen to here. You will not have to actively search the dates and times to ensure you get the right one… and it will be worth it!
[Bill Nye and his reasons for disbelief… for being an agnostic.]
Isaiah 51:13 And forgettest the LORD thy maker, that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and hast feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? and where is the fury of the oppressor?
