CREATIONISM

CREATIONISM - We prefer the term "creation science." But opponents are in the majority, ...so their term is: "creationism."

Scientists who focus on details all day long may inadvertently miss the big picture of this incredibly complex creation around us. Flowers, stars, the wind, snow, nettles, ice cream, acid, love, bears, and granite. All that is in this giant universe just kind of "exploded" into existence and complexity all by itself? There is no Creator behind it all?

How many dimensions are there?  Humans have five senses and we're relegated to a small bluish planet on the side of a particular galaxy.  Does it make sense to you that we can somehow come to grips with "all that is"?  Remember that we've only known about the existence of radio waves for the past 100 years.  Modern humans are hot stuff, huh?  Have you ever walked into a room and fell a "chill" or that something was wrong? Have you ever sensed that you were being watched?  ...How many dimensions are there? Could there be dimensions (or realms) outside of our inherently limited natural senses?  There are some "prove it to me" folks in every generation.  Atheism goes back at least 3,000 years.  We only have 5 senses, which is enough to sense some of what's out there.  But when people think that their understanding is at the "center of the universe" I must refrain from joining such nonsense.  Pride goes before a fall.   ...The pre-Galilean-evolutionists ... thinking that everything revolves around their understanding - or else it doesn't exist....

Does "God(s)" have to answer to us and our understanding?  (Does He/She/It/They ... have to answer at all, in fact.)  Think about it.  Or is it more logical to proceed with the perspective that it is we humans who have to seek out and answer to Him?!  Human senses (upon which all of science is necessarily dependant - all the "testable-repeatable" categorizations, etc.) only perceive data from some of the dimensions around us. We are largely unaware of the others.

A high schooler may learn how to take apart and repair automobiles.  He or she might get really good at it.  But understanding how something works and why is still a far cry from then deciding that if no engineer steps forward - maybe the car just fell together all by itself.  I don't have enough faith (nor misplaced pride) to believe such a theory.  ....Human DNA has some 3.5 billion base pairs in careful, detailed sequential arrangement.  Where's the big factory to make more humans?  ... Oh wait, it's built in.  Also partial repair processes are built-in.  You start exercising certain muscles - they respond and automatically grow bigger for the next day.  We can (collectively) hold our breath and stomp our feet but the notion that "God has to answer to us" (among other evolutionary assumptions) is really backwards IMHO.  Creationists contend that it is actually we who are standing on the side of science, against religious beliefs that would hold us back.  We recognize firstly that there *must* have been a Creator.  Just as any car must have had a designer even more so life on Earth shows evidence of incredible built-in design.

Maybe scientists, though smart in some ways, could be generally weak in other areas, like spiritual perception. Have you ever thought of this? (Possibly somewhat like a "nerd" who's brilliant with computers, but who has trouble dealing with humans.)  Mired in details and complex formulas, but possibly missing the big picture.  You wouldn't want a brilliant lawyer to perform open heart surgery on you (even though he or she is smart), or for a jet mechanic to do your taxes, right? So don't trust scientists when it comes to what are really ancient history and spiritual matters - our origins and the purpose of life. How we first got here and precisely when it started is inherently outside of modern testable-repeatable science.  (text by P.A.)
