Chapter 22 of Evolution, the Big Bang, and Other Fables, by A N Mack MD
In my job as an Emergency room physician, I frequently see people who are “chemically impaired”. Opiates, benzo’s, cocaine, or maybe just THC or alcohol. Sometimes more than a dozen patients a day. Some agitated, aggressive belligerent, or dangerous… some mellow, sad, and depressed. Occasionally they arrive hyperactive. Sometimes they are somnolent, snoring or occasionally not breathing at all. Many have lost all hope and are suicidal.
And sometimes, in a mood dominated by fatigue more than by compassion, one of the ER nurses will say “There is one more example of survival of the fittest in action.”
And in view of the evolution/creation debate, this raises a question? Is there anything wrong with substance abuse? If the universe and life itself are random accidents, why not “escape” reality every chance we get? And if it causes pain or suffering or emotional distress to others in our family or our community, so what? If there is no higher power and no such thing as religion or spirituality… who cares? Why should a bipedal sentient evolutionary accident care? What difference does it make to a random collection of molecules? Is it logical that a “smart monkey” should have ethical obligations?
Evolutionists loudly promulgate their religion in schools and on college campuses. They label anyone who differs with their agenda as a miscreant, anti-intellectual, anti-science, or at best woefully uninformed. But the real question is, why do they care?
Is it because they genuinely care that others might be uninformed or uneducated on the issue? I don’t believe so.
Or is it because they want all the social mores that restrict them from uninhibited sexual expression and substance abuse removed? Is it because they are offended by the possibility of a God to who they are ultimately accountable? I believe it is.
Rampant uninhibited sexuality and uncontrolled substance abuse are damaging to both individuals and to society. They have been present in one form or another throughout the history of mankind. But if we believe the random nature of existence suggested by evolution and the Big Bang, why does it really matter?
If on the other hand, we are NOT here by accident, and especially if we are created by a loving God, born to have an actual relationship with Him, then alcoholism, substance abuse, and self-neglect are indeed “sins” worthy of condemnation. Why? Because they stand in opposition to our divine nature, and they come between us and our destiny in Christ!
In this book, we have examined the shaky scientific foundations of Evolution and the Big Bang, and we have found them to be lacking. This book is merely skimming the surface of the abundant Scientific data that is now available supporting a creation cosmology, rather than a Big Bang cosmology. There are many, many well written, scientific sites on the internet which will support my writings and opinions. Look at,
The Creation Institute,
the Blue Letter Bible,
answersingenesis.org, and many more.
Of course I also recommend my own site, Debunking-evolution.com.
It is my hope that as the reader examines the scientific evidence, he or she will no longer be intimidated by the secular atheistic interpretations of geology and archaeology. Rather I hope that as you look objectively at the evidence, you will forsake the darkened mindset of the pagans (or the modern atheists) Paul wrote about in Romans Chapter One 18-21,
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rather, I hope that each and every reader will pray and ask the Almighty God of the Universe whether the words of this book are true. Each of us has access to His Holy Spirit of Truth, and each can weigh the truth of God’s word vs the truth pushed on us by this fallen world.
And I pray that God will have mercy on us all as we seek out the Truth of His Word.
“The Lord your God is with you. He’s mighty to deliver. He takes great delight in you. He will quiet you with His love. He rejoices over you with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:17)
