Observations on Evolution

In the essay “Is Theology Poetry” C. S. Lewis discusses his view of the universal evolution theory  – “By universal evolutionism I mean the belief that the very formula of universal process is from imperfect to perfect, from small beginnings to great endings, from the rudimentary to the elaborate, the belief which makes people find it natural to think that morality springs from savage taboos, adult sentiment from infantile

National Catastrophe

UnknownI’m hearing a lot about potential catastrophic events that seem imminent and serious. First, I heard sometime ago that our entire water, food, financial, communication, and energy infrastructure could be permanently disabled by a cyber attack or an EMP, (electro magnetic pulse).  It is estimated that this catastrophe would result in the death of 90% of the US population within one year.  The second catastrophe I heard was of a large volcanic crevasse which opened in the Yellowstone National Park that is indicative of an eruption of a massive volcano under Yellowstone.  This volcanic area is the largest in the nation and would make the explosion of Mt. Saint Helens seem 

Perspective

jw_12A bird has a sense of equilibrium in their head that enables the bird to maintain its head in a fixed position irrespective of the bird’s body, wings, tail and feet.  This is necessary as the bird flies by moving and positioning it’s wings and tail separately. We are made to travel with feet fixed to the ground, so our equilibrium is referenced to the ground rather than the air.  Of course we can fly, swim, dive, roll, climb and move in almost any manner with the devices and instrumentation that we have invented.  We were made by God to rule over all the creatures of the earth.  The animals have a distinct fear of man accordingly.  There is no animal that lives off humans as its prey. The closest

Incomprehensible

ClMr788WkAAX7pwIt was asserted that Sigmund Freud didn’t attempt to cure his neurotic patients through psychoanalysis, but merely help them to accept the world as it is.  He was not a believer – an agnostic, but he properly assessed the capability of man.  To heal is the work of God, which He accomplishes through doctors, right living, and his miraculous intervention. Just because He uses men in His work, the cure does not cease being His.  Just as the prophetic word (1 Cor. 14: 24-25), preaching, acts of lovingkindness, or teaching may be used of God in His work – salvation is through God alone.

The Power of Chance

ab1e99750fd30cab5e29c4201ca9a8b5--creation-vs-evolution-darwin-evolutionEveryone seems to agree that in chance there is hidden great power. The theory of evolution is based on chance events that happen randomly over millions of years. This theory is now generally accepted as fact and forms a basis for the origin of species. I was watching a nature show recently that cited certain animal species that evolved to live on land, but rejected it and returned to the sea. Perhaps this explains the large brain and mental capacity of dolphins that breathe air and are mammals like humans. Could they be the missing link? Might humans be the predecessors of dolphins? Did early men slithered upon shore, become upright, become apes, then a portion of them dove back into the sea and evolved into dolphins? Maybe the laughing sound they make is their laughing at us for remaining

The Sky Is Falling

images“The sky if falling.”  Chicken Little uttered these words over and over and some began to believe her.  The lost (an acceptable biblical term referring to those who do not currently believe in God) spew forth a seemingly endless list of pending doom for this world.  Here is a brief incomplete list:

– Nuclear Destruction

– Over population growth

– Global climate change

– Asteroid collisions with earth

– Comet collision with earth

– World wide disease epidemics

– Starvation through genetic tampering

– Poisoning of all air and water

This is Not Rocket Science

22I saw a very serious report on a major network national news segment discussing the plans necessary to inhabit Mars as an alternative to Earth.  Mars is a dry rock, without a breathable atmosphere, and incapable of sustaining any existing life.  Simple common sense shows there is no possibility of making it habitable.  The soil and environment will not grow any existing life.  Even in a worse case scenario , it would be much easier to clean up earth, all its water, all its air, all its soil, rather than attempt…
