Today’s Show Notes: Fri, 9/28

This video might make you smirk...

Evidence Bible
“Biblical faith does not call people to crucify their intellect or take irrational leaps of faith into the darkness with the hope that Christ will catch us. Rather we are called to leap out of the darkness and into the light…True faith involves trusting in the evidence that God has amply provided in and through His Word.” R. C. Sproul

Question of the Week Winner!
(Email from Lynda) “. . . After I shared my faith in Christ, he (63 year old law enforcement officer) informed me that he knew the bible better than me, he had gone to church . . . and he did not believe in God. Being (I thought) well trained in the Ray Comfort one sentence response... so you believe that nothing created everything, then he said the big bang theory... he shut me up! (You would think HE was using the law). All I could think of to say was I was sorry that he had come to that conclusion, but one day he will stand before a just and righteous God, and at some point every knee with bow and declare Jesus is Lord . . . Any tips or suggestions past the ‘so you believe nothing created everything’... Need more schooling on this one. You run into that sort more often.”

From a WND interview with Ray:  “All you have to do,” Comfort told WND, “is push them into a corner and say, ‘So, you’re an atheist?’ ‘Yep.’ ‘So you believe that nothing created everything, a scientific impossibility?’ And they’ll say, ‘Well, no.’ ‘So you believe something created everything?’ And they say, ‘Well, yeah. Something did, obviously.’ ‘So you’re not an atheist?’ ‘OK, I’m not an atheist.’

“This something you believe created everything,” Comfort continued, “do you think it was intelligent? I mean, could you create a bird or a flower or a tree or a blade of grass from nothing?’ And they’ll say, ‘No, I can’t do that.’ ‘Well, is this something you believe created everything intelligent?’ And they’ll say, ‘Obviously.’ And I’ll say, ‘Congratulations, you’ve just become an anti-science, knuckle-dragger in the eyes of our learning institutions, because you believe in intelligent design.’”

Let’s see it in action...

Which came first analogy…
Which came first – the blood or the heart that pumps the blood? Did the body evolve a heart because it needed?

How did the body survive when the heart hadn’t yet evolved? Or was the body alive without a heart? How did that work?

Did the skin exist before the blood formed? How did the skin stay alive without blood? Why did blood form and how did skin live without oxygen pumping through it?

If skin was able to live in that state, where did the oxygen come from, and why did blood suddenly need oxygen to keep it alive?

Did the lungs form because they were needed to pull in oxygen for the heart?

How long did it take for lungs to evolve, and how did the heart survive without oxygen?

Richard Dawkins, in his 2004 book “The Ancestor’s Tale” wrote, “The fact that life evolved out of nearly nothing, some 10 billion years after the universe evolved literally out of nothing, is a fact so staggering that I would be mad to attempt words to do it justice.”

Robert A.J. Matthews of Ashton University in England, who wrote, “It is now becoming clear that everything can – and probably did – come from nothing.”

Paul Davies, American physicist of Arizona State University wrote, “Even if we don’t have a precise idea of exactly what took place at the beginning, we can at least see that the origin of the universe from nothing need not be unlawful or unnatural or unscientific.”

“The whole thought that nothing created everything is an intellectual embarrassment for atheists,” Comfort told WND. “All you have to do is present unbiased facts about the unscientific and unthinking nature of atheistic evolution, and then watch people change their minds.”
