CREATIONISM



Bill Nye the "Science Guy" said in a recent interview that Creationism.....  (or Intelligent Design as it is sometimes called)..... a popular belief system of Fundamental Christianity  would be virtually non-existent in 20 years.  Oddly, Creation Revolution website courageously posted the interview on their site, presumably because "they think they are right" and Bill Nye is "lost in space!" If anything you have to give them credit for their confidence.
   
They received many comments.....most in support of the Creationist point of view as one would expect. One particular comment resonated with my belief system and I was persuaded to make comment.........

His comment..................

Warren O'Rourke · Top Commenter · Birmingham, Alabama

Consider this for a moment before replying:

Absolute nothingness -- no forces, no particles, no spiritual or metaphysical entities, absolutely nothing at all.

It seems that such a condition would be irreversible -- that nothing could come out of absolute nothingness.

So we must reject the idea of absolute nothingness and face up to the idea that something or other has always existed.

Also, whatever it is that has always existed has at least the following characteristic:

That ever-existing something or other has the potentiality to give rise to the universe we see around us.

Whatever that ever-existing something is may be characterized as GOD!

My comment....................

Of all the comments made on Bill Nye's statements, and even guys like Dawkins et al.....Mr. O'Rourke's  is the ONLY logical one AND  Mr. Ramer's  Psalm 14:1 comment "The fool has said in his heart ,There is no God."  is "right on" because you must be a fool to reject God's TRUTH revealed by the Science in the Bible! 


The reason why BOTH Science and Religion  cannot explain TRUE reality is they BOTH "need" a beginning. 142 years ago French Chemist Louis Pasteur answered that question and to this day, very few "get it."   The Law of Biogenesis, revealed by Pasteur's experiments, states that ALL life MUST come from pre-existing life.....ie; Creation always existed...was always "creating" and will continue to create.....frankly...this seems to be the "God" revealed to the ancient Hebrews and culminated in the Incarnation of Yeshua Ben Joseph 2000 years ago. (Jesus The Christ)  Why?  ....because God reveals Himself within ALL of us as Jesus revealed.

 The tragedy is that man in his arrogance created a "religion" out of Christ's revelations (frankly not much different than any other man made religion) which sadly is opposed to the TRUTH revealed by God in Christ.  This TRUTH is suppressed by the illusion that Science and Faith in the God of TRUTH are incompatible creating a "war" between  the TRUTH of reality and belief systems. 

The purpose of this "war" was to keep humanity divided socially, culturally and spiritually and more importantly to prevent mankind from knowing we are members of a vast Cosmic Family isolating us from sharing and being a part of this "Family of God." This is the definition of "evil."   Why does this evil exist? The answer is Free Will.   All sentient intelligent life has the choice to accept the reality of the God within or "be there own gods."  Since I believe the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, I will use it to reference the fact that 2/3rds of Creation chose to remain within God's Family and 1/3rd chose to rebel and "be god."  It is the 1/3rd "rebels" that presently control our reality and influence our sinful nature on this planet as revealed in the letter of Saul of Tarsus (St. Paul) to the early Church at Ephesus, Turkey, (Ephesians 6:12....“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” The ONLY way the "God that dwells in us" can unify humanity is through the Incarnation...Jesus Christ. The "Gift of Science" (and mathematics)  is the tool that can reveal TRUTH and reality but only if used through a humanity unified through the TRUTH revealed by Christ....."that God dwells within us and works through us and His PERFECT Laws"
 
(BTW...this is the only way I could deal with all the evil in the world today, especially the beheadings of 4 innocent hostages at the hands of  "religious" ISIS. ALSO....the alleged incompatibility between Science and the Bible is illusion......the TRUTH is that Science verifies the Bible's Truth (and vive versa) and exposes the Fundamental Creationist INTERPRETATION of the Bible as illusion)

Bill Nye stating that Creationism will disappear  in 20 years as a "mechanism of creation" is not entirely true.  The "traditional" definition of Creationism, which is fantasy, WILL change because ironically, Science has already revealed that the Creation of Adam and Eve in the Book of Genesis is TRUTH of "Intelligent Design." Sadly, both Science and Religion do not realize this because neither really know the God revealed in Christ...the God who Creates THROUGH His Creation. Intelligent Design/Creationism are TRUE, Fundamental literal Bible interpretation hides this TRUTH. 

Creationists say Adam and Eve were created by "Intelligent Design."  THEY ARE CORRECT. (but for the wrong reasons..."magic" is not Intelligent Design)   Science says Adam evolved from Apes by Darwinian Natural Selection.....THEY ARE WRONG. (although the wonderful diversity of life anywhere can be explained by Darwinism....ironically, Creationists accept micro-evolution in antibiotic resistance in pathogens yet reject macro--evolution.)


Some Bible Science..........

The Creation of Eve by Intelligent Design in Genesis by "modified cloning" is an example of applying God's "Gift of Science"  to Bible interpretation.  The Bible says Adam needed a "helpmate" (indigenous females didn't "float his boat!") so God put him into a "deep sleep: and removed a "rib", covered it with "flesh and blood" and "magically" created "EVE."  God presents "her" to Adam and he exclaims..."At last...this is flesh of my flesh and bone of my bone, I will call her 'WOMEN' because 'she comes from man.' "   Is this description fantasy?  No...it is a simple explanation of a complex process.    Here's the "modified cloning Science" behind it...........The marrow of the  "rib"   is one of the better sources of adult stem cells. Adult stem cells can be easily "reset" to the "embryonic state"....Induced Pluripotency.    We are rapidly learning how to "trigger" Pluripotent cells  to grow into all kinds of spare tissues and organs.  Unfortunately,  the "market" for embryonic cells from discarded human embryos is much more lucrative for business. GRRRR!  The Science of Pluripotent Stem Cells sure seems to "reveal" the simple TRUTH in the Creation of Eve in Genesis 2:21-23..... "So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs[a] and then closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib[b] he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.23 The man said,“This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh;she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.”  Here's how God "did it".......He  (through His Family) took 2 Pluripotent cells (from Adam's rib that were reset)....He removed the "Y" Chromosome (DNA) from one and discarded it saving the cell. He took a second cell and removed an "X" Chromosome (DNA) and discarded the cell and inserted the "X" Chromosome into the first cell, which now has 2 "X" Chromosmes. The resulting cell  was "triggered" to begin "cleavage" and was placed into a surrogate womb (probably artificial, no doubt)  as if it were a "zygote." (technically that what it was) The modified cell continued morphogenesis and finished gestation 9 months latter ans "little" Eve was born.  Definately "flesh and bone" of Adam and therefore a TRUE Homo sapiens female.  I suspect the "deep sleep" might have been cryogenic suspension because Eve was a young women when God presented her to Adam.

The Creation of Adam by Intelligent Design by the mechanism of  Recombinant DNA using Simian stock becomes very plausible when you understand how similar the Human genome is to the Simian and that the source of "new" natural genetic  information is by DNA mutation and that 99% of them are "lethal" and less than 1 % of the non-lethals occur in germ cells which are the only ones passed on to future offspring for Natural Selection to act on, you realize there had to be a different mechanism involved than Darwinism.  Then .....when you read Genesis 1:26.... "Then God said, “Let US make mankind in OUR image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”, AND when you understand the God revealed by Christ, you can logically conclude that Adam WAS created by Intelligent Design via rDNA.  In addition, Genesis 2:7 says......"Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being."  Magic, fantasy? NOPE!...pure simple "pre-Science" explanation.....man is made out of Earth's "dust.".....the Science.....life is made of biochemical organic compounds......proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids.  THEY are made up of the elements of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorous and secondary supporting elements of sodium, postassium, chlorine, calcium, magnesium, iodine, iron and some oddball trace elements....... IF THAT AIN'T "DUST" I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS."    Add the "breath of life?"  How about all the biochemical pathways that is the process of "living"....the "God" discovered by Louis Pasteur that "Creates life from pre-exisiting life?"



Frankly, I believe Religious Creationists and their literal fundamental interpretation of God's Word have unwittingly helped the dark forces revealed in Ephesians 6:12.   It scares me to wonder how many people have rejected the God of Creation because of Creationists spending all their time and money on fighting Science instead of spending the time and money on sharing the God revealed in the "flesh" by Jesus Christ. Religious Christians I fear have been seduced by the "dark side" of the 1/3rd. 

I may sound "nuts" and what I say may sound like fantasy but it is sure is a lot more plausible than the Creationist's fantasy!   Both Science and the Creationists are "fools" of Psalm 14:1......Science for rejecting God and Creationists for rejecting the Science God has given us IN His IMAGE.

(with so many religious people believing the planet is only 6000 years old it is easy to understand why so many people have "fallen" for the myth of man made global warming.)
