Scientific Research & Self-Development Activism
I found this article today while browsing around the web and was struck by this portion:
Over and over again in astronomy, cosmic collisions are invoked as a sort of magic wand to rescue evolutionary theories from the facts. The planet Uranus is tilted over, but evolution says it can’t be—therefore, long ago something hit it and knocked it over. Venus’s rotation contradicts evolutionary predictions—therefore, long ago something hit it and spun it round the opposite way.
Mars’ atmosphere is too thin for evolutionist tastes—therefore, it used to be thicker, but long ago something hit Mars and stripped most of it away. Mercury is too dense for evolution—therefore, long ago something hit it and conveniently removed the lighter parts. Evolutionists wave their collision-wand at will, and yet mock as ‘unscientific’ the *religious* belief in a catastrophic global Flood, despite the abundant physical and historical evidence for it.
Just thought I'd post this since I had a long discussion here recently in chat with another member about the various problems with Evolutionary Theory. What do you all think?
That you understand the truth in these words is enough for me
I recently got into a revisiting of the Noah's Ark story and it was fun. One of the youtube comments.. oh man.. I need to start a blog for this stuff (it's just hilarious). Religious stories have more and more holes in the more you seriously consider them. I don't see that science, a human effort to understand reality (note: religion is an explanation of reality relevant to being human) is expected to be right or well-guided fundamentally in where it is going. It's just an effort to understand our world. Viewing science and religion as complete opposite drives is one of many instances of arrogant ignorance that I can see is natural in our society. There simply is no 'right' view to take (which is the impression I generally get over these types of bitter arguments) and actually today I had an epiphany about how discussions on this level, like those on youtube, are silly ones... they're wasting time, really, because science is where discovery and enlightenment is at. Viewing things under many lenses, etc.. and I wrote something cool about religious notions in general:
"One thing you can be sure of in someone addressing the far-future with their concerns for worldly/humanity problems, is they have their head on straight. As opposed to addressing and looking to, the past, for an ultimate righteous ground to act on, and to solve problems with."
