Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
Hebrews 11:3 “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
On February 4th, Ken Ham and Bill Nye debated the origins of the universe and humanity. During the debate, Mr. Nye’s most overblown argument was highlighted through his multiple claims that the innovative ability of our nation and our entire economic future hinge on this one issue. According to Nye and others, those who don’t believe in the prevailing scientific paradigm on this single issue cannot be critical and analytical thinkers. In Nye’s mind, this lone issue dominates all other issues in science, engineering, and technology.
I am a creationist, and an analytical and critical thinker. My beliefs on this issue stem from analytical and critical thinking, the same type of thinking that I demonstrated in my engineering undergraduate degree from MIT and in my engineering master’s degree from Stanford University. My beliefs as a creationist have never hindered me in my ability to lead large organizations filled with scientists and engineers.
My wife is a creationist, and an analytical and critical thinker. Her beliefs on this issue stem from analytical and critical thinking, the same type of thinking that she demonstrated in her mathematics undergraduate degree from MIT and in her PhD from UC Berkeley. Her beliefs as a creationist have never hindered her in her performance as a Division I college professor.
Evolutionists claim that success in all such fields is impossible if you do not agree with them on their chosen issue. That simply is not true.
What these evolutionists do not understand is that they are trapped in a powerful paradigm, one that blinds them to alternative points of view and contradictory evidence. In fact, these same evolutionists quickly cry out against the dominant thought during Galileo’s time, fueled by ideological fervor, which clung to an earth-centered universe in spite of contradictory evidence. Yet, they themselves are quick to cling to the dominant thought in our time, fueled by ideological fervor, which clings to naturalistic processes leading to creation in spite of contradictory evidence. This seems like anti-analytical thinking to me, especially when evolutionists employ tactics throughout the scientific community to quickly stifle dissent.
PLEASE PRAY FOR AMERICANS TO EMBRACE A WORLDVIEW OF CREATION BY THE GOD OF THE BIBLE. True analytical and critical thinking are at stake.
