MAGIC!! Why Atheistic Evolution is Impossible, 1) Something from Nothing, a TOTAL Scientific Barrier.

There are two opposite views to explain how we got here: Evolution, everything appeared very slowly during billions of years OR Creation, God made everything in six days about 6,000 years ago. Which one is true? Both frameworks face the same obstacles. There are three steps in both processes that require miraculous action because they violate known and proven scientific LAWS. Remember, Laws of science have NO exceptions. If they do, they can’t be a law, only a theory or a hypothesis. For Creation, this breaking of scientific laws requires no explanation because Creation is supernatural. God has the power to break laws, and they remain laws. WE call these events miracles and Jesus did many, walking on water, the Canna wine, raising Lazarus, calming the storm, healing many, etc.

My new book Without 3 Miracles Darwin’s Dead! Sub titled “Science Proves Atheistic Evolution is IMPOSSIBLE” can change many minds about the Evolution’s viability because Evolutionary development flagrantly violates three scientific laws, the 1st and 2nd Laws of Thermodynamics and Biogenesis.   To break a scientific law, you need a miracle, and Atheistic Evolution cannot allow any because they must reject the supernatural.  I call these three miracles: Magic, Frankenstein, and Uphill Molasses.  This week we’ll deal with “Magic,” the appearance of something from nothing, a violation of the 1st Law.

Evolution is NOT science but a model to think about the past, so the next question we ask is: “how reliable is the Evolutionary framework?” Since the Universe cannot be eternal, the Big Bang begins with material that suddenly appears from nothing and then explodes. This first step is impossible because it violates the 1st law of thermodynamics. Most evolutionists start their Big Bang models several microseconds AFTER the matter has appeared and do not address the problem of its original appearance. This appearance defies the first law, which says, pardon the paraphrase: “You can’t get something from nothing.”

The1st Law of Thermodynamics is also called the law of the conservation of energy. It states that the total energy/matter in an isolated system is constant. It can be transformed from one form to another, but cannot be created or destroyed.

The Universe is considered an isolated system! Therefore, the total matter/ energy in the Universe is constant and CANNOT change.  NO matter or energy can appear or disappear.  Evolutionists that address this problem of the matter arising from nothing say either; 1) “the laws of physics do not apply until matter appears” or 2) “this remains a great mystery.” In both of these cases these “excuses” they call explanations reveal the faith nature of Evolution. Since the appearance of everything from nothing violates a scientific law, it MUST be accepted BY FAITH. It is NOT scientific! In your witnessing, point out to the Atheistic Evolutionist that they deny faith because “there is no God!” yet believe in the miracle of the sudden appearance of matter in violation of this scientific law. Here we see the contradictory nature of the Atheistic worldview. Faith in something from NOTHING but NO faith is allowed in anything else?? Think about that statement, and you’ll see it’s absurd!

Worldviews and the Uniqueness of Christianity PART 2.

This BLOG is from Chapter 4 “The Uniqueness of Christianity” of:Always Be Ready to Give an Answer!” Last week we saw the three different views of Mankind’s position in this world: 1) God’s not relevant, and death is final. 2) Non-Christian religions escape death by human efforts, and 3) Christianity, God rescues man from death. All three worldviews answer the same question: “What happens to us when we die?” Christianity differs from all other worldviews and religions in a stark way that all humanity is helpless and hopeless in defeating death. All are condemned to Hell by both their nature and action.

The History.

God placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden with the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil to test their love and obedience. By not eating from the tree, they could continually demonstrate love for God as an act of their will. They had the choice to not love by disobedience, so they had true free will. God warned them that eating from the tree would have the consequence of death. When Adam ate from the tree, he brought the curse of sin and death to all of the creation. Adam’s spirit died immediately. His body entered the process of dying, but it would be some time before he would physically die. It’s as if God said: “You will begin to die (spiritual death), you will continue to die (aging), and eventually, you will be dead (physical death).

The Dilemma.

The entrance of sin meant all children of Adam and Eve are guilty of this rebellion by both birth and personal practice. We are born sinners, and we sin by intent daily. All mankind is dead in their spirit and will not seek a relationship with God, hating God by nature and practice (Read Romans 1–3). The situation is entirely hopeless. All are destined to Hell, and no one can do nothing to stop their death. If this were the end of the story, Christianity would be the most hopeless religion because there would be no way to escape death. We are all lost, condemned and hopeless, so God alone can provide a solution.

The Good News.

Now, the good news of the gospel! God himself came to earth as Jesus, the perfect man, also called the second Adam. He was not born by the natural process but rather miraculously conceived in the virgin’s womb. As a result is not a son of Adam, and does not inherit the sin nature. His spirit is alive. Jesus lived a perfect life obeying all God’s law and then sacrificed himself to pay the sin debt of some of mankind. Since people will not seek God because they are dead, God himself has to awaken them, to hear the call to receive the payment of their debt made by Jesus. It’s called substitutionary atonement. One life traded for another to satisfy justice. Lazarus in the grave is a great example! See my earlier blog: http://wp.me/p6OUE6-1y

LESSON: Christianity is unique in world religions because it alone teaches man is dead and will not seek God. God alone can provide escape from death and only through Jesus Christ

Christianity’s Uniqueness Among Other Religions, and Worldviews PART 1.

This BLOG is adapted from Chapter 4 “The Uniqueness of Christianity” in my bookAlways Be Ready to Give an Answer!” In spite of all of these worldviews and religions there are only three different views of Mankind’s position in this world and his possible rescue from death: 1) God’s not relevant and death is final. 2) Non-Christian religions escape death by human efforts, and 3) Christianity, God rescues man from death. All must answer the same question: “What happens to us when we die?”

God’s not relevant and death is final. Atheism, agnosticism, humanism, and materialism take the position that God may or may not exist but, if he does, he is not relevant to human behavior. They all believe mankind will evolve to a better state without aid from a deity. Evolution from microbes to man is the foundation of these views. Their answer to “What happens when we die?” is simply: “We are extinguished and no longer exist. There is no afterlife.” Atheists, agnostics, and humanists that understand this fully may take their own lives as they age because of the trials of aging and the hopelessness of this view. They ask, “What’s the point of suffering the painful aging process?” This view is bad news only! There is no good news here, only extinction and nothingness! There is no purpose or meaning to life in these views! As Christians we can see the hopelessness of this view clearly because we have the “good news” of the gospel.

Non-Christian religions escape death by human efforts. In all world religions Including cults like Mormons or Jehovah’s Witnesses some form of human effort, with or without divine intervention, is required to achieve reconciliation with God. It is some kinds of good works or keeping ritual practices by human effort that provides redemption to escape death. Most world religions recognize the fundamental flaw in mankind (sin) and find a way to deal with it to escape death. BUT we all know no one escapes the Grim Reaper. They rid their adherents of this curse by some form of religious rules, rituals, practices, etc. Man is able to rescue himself from death. In some religions, it may require the help of a deity, but human effort of some kind is the key. In Hinduism, for example, you go round and round in reincarnation until you achieve Nirvana. In Islam, die a martyr and you get to heaven and get 72 virgins. In Judaism, one lives as close as they can to God’s law and you might get into heaven if you’re good enough. Christianity holds a very different view. You are condemned and cannot do anything to escape the consequence of dying. Next week we’ll explore the uniqueness of Christianity.

Conclusion: Non-Christians hold two views on God and redemption.   Either God is not relevant OR reconciliation with him can be achieved by some human effort. Christianity is VERY different! Man is incapable of doing anything to escape death, God must rescue man.

The Absolute Laws of Science Refute Atheism and Materialism.

You’ve heard Your Atheist, Humanist or Materialist relative or friend say: “I only believe in what I can see. Faith is for fools! The only reality is the material world. There is no supernatural! Everything is relative! There are no absolutes!”

Our world is full of people that deny the supernatural. They make explicit statements about the world and act as if they were questions because they are looking for a response from us.   In the last two weeks, we explored immaterial opposites and history to demonstrate that people who claim they only believe in the material world believe in many things that can’t be sensed. Today we’ll look at the third of these, non-material arguments, absolute scientific laws.

Absolute Scientific Laws

I: “I only believe in what I can see. My five senses tell me all I need to and can know. There is no supernatural; only the material world exists. Faith in something you can’t see is foolish.”

Me: “Do you believe in gravity, the laws of aerodynamics, or thermodynamics?”

I: (Affirms.)

Me: “Do these laws change?”

I: “I don’t know.”

Me: “Have you ever seen them change or know of any time or place they did?”

I: “No.”

Me: “Then we can accept they don’t change. These laws are absolute. The universe has some scientific laws that don’t change.”

I: “But there may be a place in the universe where they do change.”

Me: “That’s an argument from silence and is faulty logic. You are begging the question!”

I: “Okay, there are laws about the physical universe that don’t change.”

Me: There are also rules of morality that don’t change, as we saw above when we talked about justice last week. Your belief that everything is relative is false. There are absolutes in both the physical world and in morality. You agree to believe in things that can’t be sensed, you accept the testimony of others about events you didn’t experience, and the now you agree the universe contains absolutes that are always true. Your view of a purely materialistic reality is false. What you believe about the world isn’t true! None of the things you said you consider to be true are true. You have a worldview that is inconsistent, illogical, and false. I say with confidence; you need to find real answers to your view of reality. My Christian worldview is real, and demonstrable and it contains good news and bad news. First, the bad news: There is a God, who created all things, sustains all things and brings justice to all things. That justice carries a sentence that includes your death and condemnation. No human can escape death! You’re lost and without hope when you stand before that just God! Now the good news: God has provided a way to satisfy his justice, not by anything you can do, but by believing that Jesus paid the debt you could not pay by dying on the cross. Reconciliation to God takes place when you put your trust in Jesus.

Atheists, Agnostics & Materialists have FAITH because they believe History.

You’ve heard Your Atheist, Humanist or Materialist relative or friend say: “I only believe in what I can see. Faith is for fools! The only reality is the material world. There is no supernatural! Everything is relative! There are no absolutes!”

Our world is full of people that deny the supernatural. They make explicit statements about the world and act as if they were questions because they are looking for a response from us. These statements are easy to answer and often provide an opportunity to present the gospel. Materialist declarations challenge Christians to spar verbally. Don’t shy away from them; they will give you a chance to share the Gospel.

In the United States today there are many people, even in churches, who believe these materialistic imperatives from Atheism, Agnosticism, Humanism, Materialism, and Marginal Christianity.   All of these worldviews are described in “Worldviews and Religions” from the book Always Be Ready to Give an Answer!

Last week we explored immaterial opposites like hot-cold, wind, and light-darkness to demonstrate that people who claim they only believe in the material world believe in many things that can’t be sensed. Today we’ll look at the second of these non-material arguments, the Historical Narrative dialogue. Our whole understanding of history is based on others writings and experiences and not on our knowledge. WE believe in history by faith in the ones who communicated it to us.

Historical Narratives

I: “I only believe in what I can see. My five senses tell me all I need to and can know. There is no supernatural; only the material world exists. Faith in something you can’t see is foolish.”

Me: “Do you believe George Washington was a real person? Did you ever see him? You only have the testimony of books written by other men.”

I: “Of course.”

Me: “Do you believe there was a Roman Empire? Do you believe two world wars occurred in the twentieth century?” (You can use as many examples as you can think of, just don’t use any events that happened during the person’s lifetime.)

I: “These things are historical events I know happened.”

Me: “You only know about past events that you didn’t witness through the testimony of others. So, you trust in something you did not see. Do you concede you believe history through the testimony of others?

I: (Affirms.)

Me: Then let me tell you some history. The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ are the most documented events of all time. If the stories about Jesus were not true, we would know because men and women don’t sacrifice their lives for a lie. Besides the testimony of history, we have two-thousand-plus years of history to affirm Jesus’ saving power.” (Give a short testimony.) “What about you? Do you believe Jesus lived, died, and rose from the dead to bring you salvation?”

Atheists, Agnostics and Materialists have FAITH because they believe in things they can’t sense. Immaterial Opposites

Immaterial Opposites

Last week I introduced the concept that even the staunchest faith denier believes in things that are beyond their senses. Immaterial Opposites is one. Here’s dialogue to illustrate.

Atheist Inquirer: I only believe in what I can see. My five senses tell me all I need to and can know. There is no supernatural; only the material world exists. Faith in something you can’t see is foolish.

Me: So, you only believe in things in the world you can see, hear, feel, smell, or taste? Do you believe in darkness?

AI: Of course.

Me: There is no such thing as darkness. Darkness is the absence of light, but it does not exist by itself. How about the wind? Do you believe in the wind?

AI: Of course.

Me: The wind itself can’t isn’t seen; only its effects. Do you believe in cold? Cold is the absence of heat and is defined by heat. We measure temperature as heat; there is no scale to measure cold, just heat or lack of it.

AI: Many possible responses.

Me: How about good and evil? Neither one can be measured or sensed, but we know it when we see it. How do we know? Is there a human conscience?

AI: Many possible responses. (At some point in this dialogue he/she is going to ask, “Where are you going with this?” or “You are frustrating me.” So now put the pieces together.)

Me: So you do believe in many things you can’t sense. Darkness and cold are descriptions of opposites of things we can measure. We observe the effect of wind, and can measure it, but don’t see it. Evil is the absence of good, but what’s the source of good? Is morality written inside of us?

Me: A person is a professional thief. He earns his wealth by stealing from others. Now you take his wallet. How does he react? ‘Hey, what’s wrong with you? You took my wallet! That’s not right.’ What? You steal for a living, but if I steal from you it’s wrong? Why are my stealing wrong and yours okay? Yes, morality has absolute standards.

Your children do something wrong so, you confront them. They immediately look guilty but fabricate excuses or lie to escape consequences. The Family Circus cartoon depicts this behavior with the semi-invisible character “Not Me.” If you deal with children, you know all about “Not Me.”

If you accept the concept of evil, you also accept justice. Bad behavior deserves punishment. Is your behavior just the response of chemistry and electricity in your brain? What is the source of those moral ideas? The Bible teaches that every person has a built-in conscience that knows right from wrong and will bring guilt when violated. Good and evil is another immaterial concept you know and accept. Even the staunchest materialist has to accept many intangible things that can be defined but not sensed or measured. Immaterial Opposites is the first of the three flaws in materialism’s beliefs. Next week, Historical Narratives.

Atheism, Humanism & Materialism are Foolish, Everyone Believes in Things Beyond Their 5 Senses!!

These next four weekly blogs I’m going to take the gloves off to deal with those that deny the supernatural and hold that the material world is all of reality. The material in this blog is from the first chapter in my book ANSWERS For “The Hope That Is In You.”

You’ve heard Your Atheist, Humanist or Materialist relative or friend say:

“I only believe in what I can see. Faith is for fools! The only reality is the material world. There is no supernatural! Everything is relative! There are no absolutes!”

Our world is full of people that deny the supernatural. They make explicit statements about the world and act as if they were questions because they are looking for a response from the hearer. These statements are easy to answer and often provide an opportunity to present the gospel. These kinds of materialist declarations challenge Christians to spar verbally. Don’t shy away from these statements; they give you an opportunity to share the Gospel.

In the United States today there are many people, even in church, who believe these imperatives of Atheism, Agnosticism, Humanism, Materialism, and Marginal Christianity.   I describe all of these worldviews in “Worldviews and Religions” from the book Always Be Ready to Give an Answer!

There are three separate arguments to counter these beliefs: 1) immaterial opposites, 2) historical narratives and 3) absolute scientific laws. I’ll cover all three in the next weeks, showing these unbelievers how many things they believe on faith.

After I’ve presented these arguments I’ll say: “You’ve conceded 1) you believe in things you can’t sense, 2) you accept the testimony of others about events you did not experience, and 3) the universe contains absolutes that are always true. You view of reality has been falsified. What you believe about the world isn’t true! You have a worldview that is inconsistent, illogical, and false. You need to find actual answers to your view of reality. My Christian worldview is real, demonstrable, and absolute and contains good news and bad news. First, the bad news: There is a God, who created all things, sustains all things and brings justice to all things. That sentence upon all humankind includes your death and condemnation. You cannot escape death! ALL men DIE! You are lost and without hope when you stand before the justice of God! Now the good news: God has provided a way to satisfy his justice, not by anything you can do, but by believing that Jesus paid the debt you could not pay by dying in your place. Reconciliation to God happens when you put your trust in Jesus.”

Next week we’ll look in depth at the first of these arguments, Immaterial Opposites.

Some critics of these arguments will say: “Don’t call us fools!” My answer is I am only repeating God’s assessment of your worldview. Psalm 14:1 “The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt; they do abominable deeds; there is none who does good.”
