Two worldviews

In simple form, everyone holds to either of two worldviews. Either you believe that nothing became something which blew up and became everything or you believe that something took nothing and created everything. You either believe eons ago, there was nothing and somehow, it became something which blew up in the Big Bang and became everything we see today or you believe that God out of nothing created everything.

Neither one can be proven by science. Science deals with observing, testing, and repeating. No one can go back in time and observe nothing becoming something and blowing up into everything. Since you can’t observe it, you can’t test it and you can’t repeat it. On the other hand, no one can go back in time and observe God creating everything out of nothing. To believe either one, you must believe it by faith. You cannot prove evolution is true. It requires faith to believe evolution. I cannot prove God exists. You must believe that God is by faith. By faith, we know that the worlds were formed by the word of God (Hebrews 11:3).

Some may contend that the fossil record proves evolution. That is not true. The fossil record only proves that there were millions of creatures that died and were buried. Evolutionists interpret the fossil record in such a way to support the theory of evolution. Bible-believers interpret the fossil record in such a way to support the history of the Bible. The facts – the evidence – is the same in both cases. The intepretation of the facts is what varies.

Since origins cannot be proven by science no matter what you believe – evolution, creation, intelligent design, panspermea, your belief is not an established fact – unless you have the testimony of an eyewitness. Bible-believers do have the testimony of an eyewitness. We have the word of God. The Bible has been tested by time, by history, by archaeology, by experience and in every case has been proven to be true. Since the Bible is true, what does the eyewitness testimony say about origins?

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Genesis 1:1

  1. So you claim hear-say evidence is better than physical evidence? Interesting. Techinically science doesn’t prove anything, you are right there, but it can disprove or confirm many things. Technically you are incorrect in stating that the Big Bang relates to something coming from nothing, there was always “something”. Energy in the form of vaccum energy seems to have always existed based on the current evidence, and as we understand vaccum energy it can “decay” into matter or other forms of energy. Given enough time quantum fluctuations could easily allow for enough matter to form from the vaccum energy to form a singularity. Of course this aspect is all based on much less evidence than the actual Big Bang itself which took place after the singularity inflated. We know an inflationary event occured about 14 billion years ago so we know the Big Bang occured and is still occuring, as universal inflation is not only continueing it is accelerating! Whatever happened before the Big Bang which allowed for it to occur can never be known. The only information we can get about pre-big bang conditions is that matter and energy existed in a sigularity like state, and that there were significant fluctuations in that singularity.

  2. I make no claim about hear-say evidence. Evolutionists have the exact same evidence Bible believers do. The interpretations of the evidence differ.

    How many times has the Bible had to change based on the discovery of new evidence? Zero. How many times has the theory of evolution had to change based on the discovery of new evidence? I can’t count that high.

  3. That is what science does…it changes as new evidence is discovered. The Bible would technically be hear-say, as no one claims that it was actually written by God, but that it was divinely inspired. So the authors would be only testifying to what they were told. Since these people are people it is like a big game of telephone. A statement that someone gave in court that went along the lines of “Well I was told the suspect did it by a very reliable source” wouldn’t stand up very well. No matter how reliable the source that the hear-say witness gets their information from it is still hear-say.

    Also you shouldn’t make the distinction between “Evolutionists” and “Bible believers” since many accept the Bible, but understand that Genesis seems to have been written in a no-literal manner.

  4. “We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”
    2 Peter 1:19-21

    The Bible is not hear-say. God did write it. The Holy Spirit moved men. The Holy Spirit is not fallible as men are.

    Evolutionists are not Bible-believers. Evolutionists may believe part of the Bible, but if you don’t believe the whole thing, you disbelieve part of it. Therefore, if you do not believe part of it, you are not a Bible-believer.

  5. You only have the word of these men who wrote it though that they were moved by the Holy Spirit. Also by using a text to confirm itself as you have just done you have fallen into a circular fallacy. By using a statement of the Bible to support your belief that the entire thing is without error you are relying on circular logic. If no prophecy is subject to private interpretation then explain why Jesus mistkenly claims that some of his followers will live to see him return and establish his kingdom in Matthew 16:28

    “Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.”

  6. There are actually 66 separate books inside the cover of the Bible so it is not circular.

    You misunderstand what Jesus said. Jesus made no mistake – he is God after all. Read on in the next chapter about the transfiguration. Peter, James, and John did in fact see Jesus that way before they died.

  7. I’m curious, Wakim. Have you taken the Good Person test? How did you do?

Got something to say?
