Science Teaches Creation


There is a big debate going on in Texas about including creationism in public school textbooks.  It seems that those opposed to this are afraid it may eclipse  the theory of evolution.  If a person is unable to defend his belief, he usually attacks those who disagree rather than the reasons for a conflicting point of view.  This is being done.  It is typical for those who reject creationism to assume a role of superior intelligence.  The liberal media embraces these self-appointed authorities while projecting people who believe God created the universe as being uneducated and ignorant.  I have earned four degrees from two collages, one university and a Ph.D. from a seminary.  I have done on-campus, post graduate study at Harvard Divinity School.  I probably have as much education as the critics of creationism and I believe that God created the universe!

Science teaches creation.  There are basically three options to explain the existence of the universe:

1. THE UNIVERSE CREATED ITSELF
This can not be true because it violates the first law of logic:  The law of non-contradiction.
A premise can not contradict itself.  For example: “This sentence is false.”  For it to be true it must be false; if it is false, it is true.  It self implodes.  The universe would have had to be in existence to create itself.  This is void of logic and is not logical. It is false.

2. THE UNIVERSE IS ETERNAL
This has proven to be untrue scientifically.  The first law of thermodynamics states that there is no new energy being created.  The second law of thermodynamics states that the energy that now exists is becoming less potent and loosing it’s condensed power.  This is called entropy. The sun is burning out.  Park a new automobile in the woods and in time it will rust and disintegrate.  Sense the universe is unwinding, there had to be a time when it was wound-up.  A time when it all started.
If there were an infinite number days, today would not have come.  Today has come and is passing; therefore, there can not be an infinite number of days.

3. THE UNIVERSE WAS CREATED
Sense the universe did not create itself and is not eternal, the only logical option left is that it was created.  Some refer to this as intelligent design.  Of course, if the universe is the product of intelligent design, there has to be and intelligent designer.  There is. . .He is God.

To believe that nothing times no-one  equals everything takes more more blind, ignorant faith than a thinking person can muster!
