A friend of mine, Larry Taunton, President of Fixed Point Foundation, wrote an article for USA Today on Richard Dawkins that I really enjoyed. His article was entitled, “The atheist who tried to steal Christmas”. This past Christmas Richard Dawkins was on the evangelism circuit again with a new 271-page book for young people entitled The Magic of Reality. His book is an attempt to show children that all religions are absolutely absurd fairytales.
It all started on Facebook …
I was asked to listen to a YouTube video of podcast #12 from TheThinkingAtheist channel, where the show is devoted to asking atheists this question, “Are atheists wasting their time debating the existence of God?” I couldn’t help but respond to that question.
Last night I watched a show from Nova on PBS called “What Darwin Never Knew.“ It went into the life of Darwin and what he did not know even though he came up with this “amazing theory of evolution.” While I enjoyed the videography of the film, the script was, if I can use my British partner’s term, “total rubbish.” Pushing evolution every chance they had, it just made me angry how many people are getting indoctrinated with the ideas of evolution. The show went into how modern-day genetics has found undiscovered switches that are able to turn genes on and off. Then they jumped to the total illogical conclusion that these “switches” are responsible for the evolutionary history of man from fish. Don’t get me wrong: what genetics is producing these days is absolutely amazing. The fact that we can go into the genome and find out what genes are responsible for what character traits is absolutely fascinating. Finding out which genes are turned off that really should be turned on to take away a mutation is very exciting. For someone who loves science and loves building, the idea of engineering biological life is fascinating, to say the least.
In the news recently, FOXNews ran a title “Hubble telescope spots complex organic molecules on surface of Pluto.” Here we go again — another deceptive title. How can a telescope that is orbiting the Earth see any organic molecules on what was once the furthest planet away from the sun? As you read the article, what you find is it appears Pluto is absorbing more ultraviolet light than expected. The article goes on to say this may be because of organic molecules on the service of Pluto.
Please excuse us if we’re a little quiet this week. We are a bit preoccupied filming a brand-new curriculum, “The Six Days of Genesis.” In this six-part series, Paul Taylor expounds upon days one through six of creation, giving powerful truths throughout.
The other day I got to talk to my father-in-law about life and death. He has a condition called myasthenia gravis. This disease makes his muscles weak and deteriorated and sometimes this causes them to give out totally. A few months ago he fell four times because his leg muscles would give out on him. I asked him if he was able to catch himself and he said it depends on if he falls backward or forward. As he smiled at me with his now slightly puffy face because of all the prednizone they are giving him he said, “If I fall backward I am like a bug that can not turn over.”
