Modern atheistic scientists behave in a manner that is a lot like the stories told of lemmings. What does a lemming do when you tell it there is a cliff? It keeps going. What does an evolutionist do when he finds abiogenesis (life magically appearing from non-life) is impossible? He makes up a scientifically and statistically impossible story about lightning and “pre-biotic soup”, and keeps believing in evolution.
What does a lemming do when he sees the ocean? He keeps going, runs over the edge, and into the ocean. What’s an evolutionist do when he finds the geologic strata are much more readily explained by a Global flood and are NOT by theories of hundreds of millions of years? He doubles down on “his side” of the evidence, and keeps on believing in spite of the facts.
In all the old stories,the lemming keeps on running to its own death and destruction, in spite of evidence it may see directly in front of its own eyes. In the same way the evolutionist keeps on believing that his way is the only way to interpret the facts, even when the Bible often provides a better explanation for the findings in geology, biology, astronomy and physics than uniformitarian assumptions (the belief that all rates of biological, geological, and chemical change have remained constant) .
How does an evolutionist explain the origin of the universe? He makes up a term he calls a “quantum fluctuation”. (There was nothing, then for some reason something happened to nothing and everything appeared.) Now I challenge any “scientist” to explain what that is, where it came from, and why anyone should actually believe that over the Biblical account of creation!
The one thing that unifies “modern scientists” (except for the tens of thousands of creation scientists who research with eyes open to other possibilities) is their complete refusal to accept the possibility of a Creator God. So is it any wonder that their often irrational, unscientific, biased studies always support the outcome that there was a Big Bang and suddenly “it just happened”. They believe there was no God, no Creator, because human scientists in their pride have said so. And so we have believed, at least until the facts about the earth and life and genomics and geology began to show HUGE holes in their logic.
Stephen Hawking said, “Scientists have become the bearers of the torch of discovery in our quest for knowledge” (1) And he also said, “Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.” (2) Yet atheistic scientists for the last 100 years have consistently turned away from any new knowledge, fact or scientific finding that does NOT support their presuppositions about the origin of life or the Universe. In this, modern scientist has condemned itself, by not applying the scientific method fairly and rationally to all areas of study.
I would think Hawking’s seemingly rational quote “One can’t predict the weather more than a few days in advance,” would have attributed a little more humility to the man. But instead he pretended he KNEW when and how the universe began, and postulated in grandiose fashion that “There is no heaven or afterlife” (as though he KNEW this) He bragged, “My goal is simple. It is a complete understanding of the universe, why it is as it is and why it exists at all.” (3) And this is one of the men modern scientists consider a hero? Does the reader know that NONE of Hawkings predictions have been verified? None of his black hole radiation has been measured. The explanation from the Guardian, in bold headlines is this:
“We still don’t have the technology to verify Stephen Hawking’s big ideas.”
And yet like lemmings, professors at colleges and universities gleefully follow his inane and unprovable “scientific discoveries” as though they are “the gospel Truth”… and sadly, perhaps to the atheist community they are.
