I Believe in Intelligent Design — I Am Waiting for Proof Otherwise — And it’s Just not There
At church I am in the middle of a great series called, “Beyond a Reasonable Doubt.” It talks about how hard it is for people to think critically concerning life’s biggest questions. I find that people today can’t make tough choices concerning what is right and wrong, not only in their lives, but also can’t or won’t take stands when it involves society around them. In other words, they don’t even want to convict the worst criminals without video coverage posted on YouTube. This was most evident when Casey Anthony was found not guilty on all charges concerning her child going missing and found dead. The jury could not even find her guilty of child abuse.
This week I am talking about Intelligent Design vs. Evolution. I really don’t care if people believe in Creation or not. What I dislike though, is when evolutionist say that all the evidence is on their side. God is not afraid of science and neither should we. He created it. The problem lies in the fact that nobody was around 6,000 years ago (Creation), let alone 5 billion years ago (Big Bang Theory). The bottom line is that if you do not believe in God, then you have to believe in a whole bunch of random chances happening over a really long time. Notice that when an evolutionist can’t explain something, he just adds a couple of more million years to his hypothesis. I happen to believe in a Divine Creator who made us around 6,000 years ago. He planned us and explained what we needed to know in the Bible. My main point in this entry is this: whether you believe in Creation or Evolution, you must believe your theory based upon faith. You have to have faith in God, or faith in a whole bunch of random events happening. Either way, you have to take a leap of faith.
To help you in your quest, I am adding a whole plethora of resources here that will give you a great deal of information from some really smart people. Since I am no expert (but I am a critical thinker), I will not fool you by trying to get into all the science, but I can point you in the right direction.
