Open Letter to an Atheist

“Wait a minute. How do we know these gears evolved, as opposed to having been designed? Because we know that everything in biology evolved. And how do we know that everything evolved? Because we know that nothing was designed. Right. But how do we know that nothing was designed? Because we know everything evolved. Ah, got it now. Everyone clear?” (2)

If only one (highly biased) viewpoint about our origin is welcome in our public schools and the halls of science, then how can that be called “freedom” of thought: or freedom to follow the evidence wherever it leads? 

Isn’t education and “science” supposed to be a search for the truth: no matter where it leads?  If so then it’s wrong, if not evil, to exclude intelligence and Creation from the debate: whether in an open forum on a college campus, public square, or the classrooms and halls of our educational system: and especially that which is funded by the people with tax dollars.

Did Mutations do the Trick?

According to some proponents of evolution, DNA error-correction mechanisms that exist today were not always around, but suddenly came into existence at some point: i.e. after each life form arrived at where it is now — after multitudes of favorable mutations caused (or created) time and again, all sorts of long chains of favorable alterations in organism after organism — over millions and millions of years: … and thus (are said to) account for all life forms on Earth today.  In a book on origins, science and creation, the authors make the following comments in this regard:

“The theoretical production of a higher or more complex form (of life) by the accumulation of beneficial mutations is such a slow process that it is admitted … to be unobservable.  This … accounts in large measure for the desire by evolutionists to increase the span of geological time, in spite of much evidence that the earth is actually quite young.  In any case, … it is … unscientific for a theory of science to … rely on non-demonstrable hypothetical processes for its basic mechanism.”

“Computer models have been set up to test the possibility of advancement of an information code … by selection from random variations … (however,) The results indicate that loss rather than gain inevitably results.”  (3)

Paul Nelson goes into much more detail on the subject of mutations creating complexity in a video on youtube.  Dr. Stephen Meyer also discusses this in a book called  Signature in the Cell. See also Life’s Origin.

Common Ancestry or Common Creator?

You assert that since many different types of life have similar things in common that this is clear evidence that they “inherited them from previous ancestors,” but in this regard you fail to mention the just as likely — if not much more likely — scenario of a common Designer / Creator using similar tools to accomplish similar tasks.  For example, wheels come in all different sizes and types, as do ball bearings, screw-drivers, and beams, yet they are used in all sorts of different things that were each made by people.  So the common ancestry assertion doesn’t “hold water,” much less prove that we evolved.

Could it be that your hatred toward God or the thought of Judgment has played a part in the hostility and anger that you often display toward those who believe in God?  Or is it simply that you may be wrong about what you say (you know) to be a “fact”? 

Or is it because you want to be feared and obeyed as if you were God: even though you didn’t make yourself, nor can you make an ant, or an amoeba, nor a synthetic blade of grass?

Is it not a “fact” that your jobs are on the line, and that your superiors require you to “toe the line,” regarding their evolutionist, “no-God-allowed” beliefs?

Are you aware that many founders of modern science were Creationists who believed in God  — and that He made the earth, and life: including them?  

For example, Robert Boyle is called the founder of Chemistry, Isaac Newton invented calculus, Mendel is the father of genetics, and Pasteur discovered germs and disproved the belief that life came from non-life?  Did you know that all of these men were Christians who believed the bible and that God and Jesus made the universe, and us? 

Or is your bias against God linked to the fact that you don’t want anyone telling you how to live, nor about right and wrong, and a God who says He and His Son are coming back to assert authority over  the world they made?
