Creation: Facts that Support the Biblical Account III
A Sunday guest post by my brilliant husband, Gregg.
Every Sunday, my clever husband offers me a “day of rest” by taking over the homemaker duties here. His primary topic, the Biblical Truth of Creation vs. Darwinism, is a subject that has broad reaching scientific, social, and metaphysical implications and is gaining more and more attention in our modern culture. For believers and non-believers alike, the primary purpose is to present scientific, historical, logical, and/or sociological data in an empirical and defensible fashion, as much as possible written in layman’s terms, and in a format suitable for supplementing any homeschool curriculum whether you choose to believe the Biblical account — or secular guesses — about the origins of human life on earth.
Facts that Support the Biblical account of Creation
The following are observed facts about nature and the universe that support the Biblical account of Creation. Note that these facts are held up by operational and empirical science.
Ideal location of Structures—Every component on or within each organism is consistently located in the best possible place, in relation to other components, space limitations, and maximum efficiency in operation. Only careful planning, engineering, and design could do this. Randomness cannot and could not produce this level of order and efficient design.
Narrowed Limits Everywhere—Wherever we turn in the entire universe we find that the “anthropic principle” is easily observed. An extremely narrow range of conditions exists where life can exist, stars can heat exactly right, and planets can revolve and orbit around a sun. This narrowed range is found repeatedly by researchers, and is too compressed to have been caused by accidents or coincidences. The tolerances are far too fine to have been accidental.
Functional Objects which Provide an Attractive, even Beautiful Appearance—Living creatures which are commonly seen are generally quite attractive in appearance. The production of a beautiful form requires intelligent planning and execution. In addition, attractive coloration is provided. Consider the color and shaping of the cardinal, the robin, butterflies, and many other animals and flowering trees and plants. These are elements and attributes which are simply not necessary for survival, yet which provide additional comfort and beauty. Only intelligence produces beautiful things. Random chance produces chaos, disorder, asymmetry, and confusion.
Darwinists claim that believers in the Biblical account of creation employ a debate device known in terms of logic as an “argument from ignorance,” or agumentum ad ignoratum, wherein Biblical followers simply can’t think of any natural explanation (e.g.: are ignorant of a materialistic explanation) and therefore the only remaining conclusion is that God did it. The truth is this accusation on their part is quite arbitrary and the opposite is actually true.
The truth is that Darwinists simply can’t think of any materialistic explanation that is supported by actual and incontrovertible evidence but are convinced by faith in the Darwinian philosophical bias that it MUST be so, and therefore fanatically cling to their religious belief in the absence of actual evidence. Evidence, in this context, is that which is supported by real observable, empirical, and operational science as well as being consistent with logic (e.g.: absent assumptions).
This is the third post wherein I have presented a tiny handful of factual evidences that support the Biblical account of creation and politely requested EVIDENCE that shows me to be wrong instead of simple ridicule. Review the past few weeks. What do you find? No evidence. Lots of ridicule.
Logically — what does that tell you about the validity, the cogency, the soundness of the Darwinist counterpoint?
