Last week we began discussing the fact that people reject the truth simply because they choose to. Today we are going to discuss this further and see how this has played out in the world that we live in today.
A good example of this can be seen within the field of science where it is OK to believe that matter is eternal, but one should never consider the possibility that there is an eternal God. Where it is OK to believe that our planet was somehow seeded by a highly evolved alien race who planned and perhaps even encoded certain things so life could exist here on earth, but it would be ludicrous to believe in what is referred to as intelligent design, the belief that an intelligent Creator designed and created life upon this earth. Where we reject the possibility that a loving benevolent God who created the universe in such a precise way as to allow for the possibility for life to exist, but where one would readily accept the concept that we don't live in a singular “Universe” but rather a “Multiverse” consisting of not millions or even billions but an infinite number of universes. You may ask, “Why would scientists ever come up with such an idea?” Well, the simple fact is that we have discovered that the statistical probability of everything in our universe being just right so as to allow for life to exist, basically makes it impossible for life to exist. So, if you are not going to allow for the possibility of a Creator God who could have designed everything in such a way as to allow for the existence of life then you must come up with another possibility. At least with a Multiverse it improves the odds that one of those universes could allow for life to exist. Now we could go on and on about this, whether in the field of astronomy where the more that is discovered creates the necessity of creating things that cannot be seen or measured but help to explain the apparent contradictions. Or in the field of biology where a multiplicity of useless steps in the “evolutionary process” must be accepted to allow for the final functional process to work.
Now I'm not saying that Creationists know all the answers, but I hope that it has at least become apparent to you that Evolutionists don't have all the answers either. The simple fact is, they have chosen to reject the possibility of God and are therefore forced to try to come up with an explanation for all the things that contradict their core belief system.
Here again, we see it is simply a matter of choosing what we believe. In this case, I find that the, by far simplest explanation is to believe that there is an eternal God who created everything and is in control of everything. “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” (Colossians 1:16-17 KJV) - Pastor Tim
