Motivational Poster For Evolutionists

Rather than respond to the comments, you've decided to make fun of people?

That's one grand set of standards you've got there. I wonder if your Bible lists anything about intellectual integrity somewhere between its covers...

Matthew said...

Is the poster trying to say everything came from nothing? If so, could you point me to where the theory of evolution postulates this?

Whateverman - Are you saying that Christians are supposed to be boring? One of God's most loved prophets poked fun at a nations god's because they couldn't do anything (ie. because they're not real) by saying that their god's were on the toilet! These people were cutting themselves, dancing voilently to get their god's to DO something, so the right response was used to get the peoples attention.

Whateverman said...

Of course not, Nathin. Christians are allowed to poke fun at people, or tell jokes, or be angry - they're allowed to be human just like everyone else.

Sam, however, in lieu of actually listening to the people who correct him, makes the same mistakes over and over and over again. And does so eagerly.

Are Christians allowed to be wrong? Sure - but trying to get them to admit it or to value "not being wrong" is much more difficult.

Apparently...

Whateverman. I personally find that poster quite motivational! I think it is also a good reminder of how wicked we humans really are! Not only to postulate such absurdities, but that we would so readily embrace them!

To answer your question regarding intellectual integrity... you will find the 9th commandment deals with that!

No, but could you explain to me where space, time and matter came from?

Whateverman... I am in constant need of much correction and I'll willingly take your correction on board so long as it is built on the foundation of truth!

I am often wrong about many things. At one point in my life I thought I was a good person - I was wrong about that! Before I got married to my wife I thought I was kind, caring, thoughtful, sensitive, understanding - I was wrong about that! When I realised I was a hell deserving sinner I thought I could pick myself up by my own boot straps - I was wrong about that! I could go on all day...

They are worthless, the objects of mockery; when their judgment comes, they will perish. Jeremiah 10:15

Though Jeremiah was referring to the practice of making objects of worship out of inanimate things, I'm pretty sure he would say the same thing about the theory of evolution!

Actually Sam, if you look at the poster, is DOES seem to be saying that the theory of evolution equates to "everything came from nothing". Even if you personally find it inspirational, at least be honest with your readers about this...

As for "where it all came from", I don't have any answers that are reliable. At best, I can say the universe appears to have started with the big bang. What caused this event is beyond our abilities to understand for the time being. Modern cosmology suggests that it might be explainable to M-theory holds true, but this (to my understanding) is little more than speculation.

So, I don't really know. I'm sure you do, but I personally try to withhold judgement until our understanding of particle physics is a more stable. Religion is quick to try to answer questions like this one - but that's because they like to substitute faith for knowledge.

For the record, I don't believe myself to be perfect. I've got problems, and these problems occasionally impact the people I care about. I can relate to the idea of self-loathing (which is what you seem to be trying to describe with your understanding of your sinful nature).

I feel, however, that the best thing I can do is to try to make myself better, rather than apologize endlessly. Free will means the ability to recognize my faults and to choose to fix them. Prayer and acceptance of the Bible may be part of solution (although I personally doubt this), but it's by no means the only method by which the problems are solved.

Sam, do you think human beings are capable of solving their own problems without asking God for assistance? This is a sincere question...
