There was an article on Global Warming that reminded me a lot of the Creation / Evolution debate. What I found interesting is that this man rightly illustrated that consensus is more important than fact in the scientific community. You see, we live in a world of influence and many voices– that and one that doesn’t know the difference between causation and relation. Scientists hold firmly to both Global Warming and Evolution and though they claim to be truth seekers, they are rather story tellers out to make sure theirs is the only one heard.
In both cases, there is tremendous information that the scientists might be wrong. And yet anyone who says such is a pariah, is maligned, and their credentials are threatened.
Take, for instance, the discovery of these skeletons– dated, amazingly, around 5000 years ago (ring any bells?). So, we find skeletons of people who are hugging— I doubt that they were not surprised, since how would you not do something to protect yourselves? If the dates are right, that would have put them during the Noahic flood– definitely something where they would be holding on to whatever meaningful for dear life!
A while back, scientists were marveling at sea creatures that they never could have believed existed:
Peering deep into the sea, scientists are finding creatures more mysterious than many could have imagined. At one site, nearly 2 miles deep in the Atlantic, shrimp were living around a vent that was releasing water heated to 765 degrees Fahrenheit. Water surrounding the site was a chilly 36 degrees.
And yet the scientists don’t question whether they must be mistaken about everything happening by chance, they just try to rationalize it. I mean, the computation for animals living everywhere has to be astronomical– and yet they cannot reach that conclusion.
We as believers can see the awesome power of a Almighty God and worship Him. We can thank this Being for saving us from our sins, and look forward to all He has promised. The scientist has to continue to try to refute creation, or else confront face to face that he is not smarter than everyone after all.
