An Open Letter to Pinellas County Churches

Dear Pastors, Lay ministers, and Board members,

We all know Christianity is under attack.  Secular atheism has taken over the colleges, the prep schools, the media, the entertainment industry, and much of society. We have been passive for so long, and have lost so many battles, ceded so much ground that there is now an epidemic of mental health problems and all of society is suffering under the weight of sin and hopelessness.  Drug abuse and addiction are rampant. The family is under siege. But all is not lost.

At the center of all this confusion and suffering, I absolutely believe, lies the scientifically unpalatable and discredited theory of evolution.  As stated by University of Chicago evolutionary biologist Jerry Coyne,   “Evolution is the greatest killer of belief that has ever happened on this planet because it showed that some of the best evidence for God, which was the design of animals and plants that so wonderfully matched their environment could be the result of this naturalistic, blind materialistic process of natural selection.”  Of course I vehemently dispute his assertion that natural selection could intentionally or accidentally design anything. (Please see prior posts on “Natural Selection” and “Branch or Vine”.) But I absolutely cannot disagree with his statement that belief in evolution kills belief in God.

What we believe about our origins has a profound affect on what we believe about ourselves. I am confident that evolution will someday be exposed as the greatest lie in the history of science.  Take a few minutes to view my blogs on “A totally Modern View on Evolution”, and  “BIG GOD, small god: Why Cosmology Matters”. Or look at “The Data in the Strata” on my blog.  You will find that none of the supposed scientific foundations of evolution are valid.  You will find proof exposing many of the fraudulent efforts of secular atheists to promote evolution.  And you will find there is no real scientific evidence to support the theory of evolution.

Like most of you, I was taught in our secular schools that Creation was a myth, and that science had all the answers.  Although I found this teaching upsetting to my core faith, I had no idea how to respond. Atheistic scientists and educators told us they had all the answers, and the Bible, we were told, was just a fairy tale. As a physician and a scientist, one who has studied this social phenomenon for decades, I am absolutely certain that the opposite is true.  There is absolutely NO evidence that evolution or Natural Selection has created any of the immense variety of life on our planet.  Yet Public schools and Universities continue to teach the lie.

I would love to see the truth of the Bible brought forward in a way that offers a path to faith, hope, love, and most importantly salvation.  My blogs at Evolutioncreation.net and Debunking-evolution.com offer the reader many scientific proofs of the absurdity of evolution, and the scientific impossibility of the Big Bang.

In Pinellas County we have hundreds of churches serving a population of a million persons.  It is the most densely populated county in all of Florida. Because of this we have a unique opportunity to serve, and to shine brightly for Christ in these dark days, and we can do so together.  If the Body of Christ can unite in service to humanity here, we can show Truth to a doubting and confused world! But how can we act together?

Christian Evolution

We can come together in 2 major ways.  First pastors and ministers who are not themselves scientists, should look within their congregations for believers who are skilled and knowledgeable in the fields of science to help them, and to explain scientific principles. WE CAN  NO LONGER CEDE THE INTERPRETATION OF SCIENCE TO THE ATHEISTS. Pastors and leaders should become familiar with the latest findings by reading books like “In Six Days” and “Refuting Evolution“.  They should go to good websites like http://www.amazingfacts.org/media-library/book/e/33/t/how-evolution-flunked-the-science-test, or read my blogs listed above. And they should visit sites that support Bible history like the Ark Encounter, the Creation Museum, and The Museum of the Bible to find out how science supports the Bible.

Second, it would be entirely possible for Bible believing pastors, Christians, and scientists in Pinellas county to begin a world class Creation museum and Bible history museum right here, serving not only the millions of people in the Bay Area, but also the ten million more who visit the Bay area on vacation every year.  And in the process, by teaming up with other Christian ministries like the Museum of the Bible, we could offer hope and salvation to a generation that is lost and suffering without Christ.

I work as an ER physician in Largo, and I live right here in Pinellas county.  If you have caught a glimpse of the vision that I believe God has for us, please reply to this blog with a message, or email me at anmack55@aol.com. And please ask all your friends and fellow ministers to join the cause. Truth saves lives.  Truth saves souls. May God bless you as you spread the Truth.
