Sex: Evolutionary Accident or God’s gift?

There are really only two explanations for sex.  It is possible that it is simply an animal urge bred into humankind (and most other animals) as an essential part of the propagation of the species, as implied by atheists and evolutionists.  It is also possible that it might be a part of a Divine plan, a gift to mankind from a loving Creator, as taught in the Bible.

Atheists, of course, tend to believe the former, despite scientific evidence to the contrary (see earlier blogs).  As society becomes predominantly atheistic, with rejection of anything but a token belief in the spiritual or the Divine, we consequently see less respect for the sanctity of  life, and less understanding of the sacramental nature of marriage.  Consequently, our social fabric seems to be ripping apart.  Affairs are rampant.  Divorce is “normal”.  Children are disposable. Mass shootings, corporate corruption, individual gluttony and laziness… all seem to be increasing. 

Christians (and some other religions), on the other hand, tend to see the hand of God in the act of sexual intimacy.  In fact it has been called a sacrament.  The Bible of course tells us in many places to stay away from sexual sin. But it does not stop there.  Paul goes on to say that we should encourage sex within the marriage, that sex is an important part of the ongoing marital relationship:  The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife. Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer.  (I Cor. 7:3-5)

The wisdom of God’s plan for the family, and for a marital relationship founded on commitment and mutual gratification, becomes evident as we compare it to the alternative.  In other words, looking around we see divorce, gender confusion, the mental health crisis, rampant pornography, pedophilia, and social chaos. These have followed closely on the heals of he breakup of the traditional family.  It serves to confirm the wisdom of God’s plan.  While we as a society, and as individuals, value freedom and an unconstrained lifestyles, it appears God placed some constraints on our sexual expression, for reasons that relate to our individual and societal well being.

The family (along with its biblical pro-sex attributes) is designed to be the core, basic unit of a stable society. As stated in an article in The Public Discourse, “The second pillar of a decent society is the institution of the family, which is built upon the comprehensive sexual union of man and woman. No other institution can top the family’s ability to transmit what is pivotal—character formation, values, virtues, and enduring love—to each new generation.“(1)

But this pillar is crumbling. With rampant alcohol and drug use, the recent push toward legalized pedophilia in Europe, the exposure of our young children to sexual images on cell phones, and even sexual teaching about homosexuality and transgender issues in our public schools, and with the pressure on young children to choose a homosexual or Trans lifestyle even before they comprehend the framework of human sexuality, the family is quite literally in a crisis.(2)

It turns out that worldview does make a difference.  In fact it makes an enormous difference whether our children are raised believing they are a child of God, or believing they are the result of an accident of cosmology.  Tragically we have millions of children and young adults now with no spiritual compass, and no inherent, foundational belief in self worth.  Entire generations of youth who have been taught that they are no more special or meaningful than a monkey, or a slime mold.  Our society and children are paying the price. And nothing but God’s plan is likely to make things any better.

Hoaxed

Image result for blind leading the blind

Evolution will someday be shown to be the greatest hoax in the history of science.  It may be, as the title of Jonathan Sarfati’s book suggests, “The Greatest Hoax on Earth?”  He writes, describing pro-evolutionist and atheist Richard Dawkins, “Dawkins is much like his hero, Charles Darwin, who embellishes scientific observations with curious speculation to fit his own atheistic worldview.” (Note: for much more on this topic see my earlier blogs on “Differing with Dawkins”, “The Data in the Strata” and “Cambrian Explosion.)

Of course even many atheists will admit there have been numerous “hoaxes” such as Piltdown man, Nebraska man, Java man, Orce man, or Boule’s Neanderthal man.  Archeoraptor and Haeckel’s embryos were also proven fraudulent. Some evolutionary proponents will admit individual instances of a person here or there who “faked” a specimen.  A few might even acknowledge the clearly “embellished” and fanciful horse series, (which has been put forward for generations as “proof” of evolution, but is actually three different species of horses).

These are just a few examples, but this is bigger than a few dozen examples can explain.  It is a systematic, guided, planned, and intentional misleading of our youth.  It is what some call textbook fraud.  Evolutionists tolerate knowingly fraudulent pro-evolution evidence in school textbooks. New textbooks purchased by schools are filled with lies to promote evolution. School teachers and professors (at least some of them) know the material is fraudulent, but continue teach it. Materials persist in High School and University Textbooks that were exposed as fraud over 90 years ago! Everyone ignores this, because this fraudulent data is the best evidence for evolution that they have!

Evolution itself, the very idea, the inane proposition itself will someday be shown to be the greatest (and perhaps most destructive) hoax ever perpetrated on mankind.

How could such a thing have happened?  Well it is amazing just how far astray you can go with the blind leading the blind.  Jesus told his followers, “Stay away from those Pharisees! They are like blind people leading other blind people, and all of them will fall into a ditch.”  Psalm 14:1 also tells us “The fool has said in his heart there is no God.”  Unfortunately, for over a hundred years, our society has been lead by fools, blinded by their pride and arrogance. Atheistic scientists are fools by scriptural definition because they don’t believe in God.  They have moved to the forefront of social consciousness, becoming so influential on our campuses that we have entire generations of youth believing that the universe created itself out of nothing, and that life rose from a mud puddle to its current array of magnificent complexity.

Romans chapter one (NIV) in context shows parallels to today:

18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

It is critical, for the sake of our youth, that a generation of scientists, teachers, pastors, and parents educate themselves on the fallacies of evolution and the Big bang.  Start from the beginning of this blog.
