In man’s efforts to deny the existence of God, he has gone to some interesting extremes. The Theory of Evolution—yes, it’s still just a theory—is perhaps the best known example. Right up there on the list are the Big Bang Theory—also still a theory—and the theories about Pangaea and the Comet that wiped out the dinosaurs.
The interesting thing is that no-one was there to know any of this, yet the theories flourish and take on new life as widely-accepted fact, being taught in schools as the tenets of the Religion of Science (Not to be confused with Scientology).
So imagine my amusement over an article on BBC about how the comet theory is now in question. It seems scientists want to agree on the extinction of dinosaurs—a fact we cannot deny since they no longer roam the Earth—but exactly how or when that occurred? That’s another problem completely.
Of course, what we do know for a fact is that the animals we today refer to as birds are the distant ancestors of dinosaurs. That’s based on some fossil remains being studied, a determination that the breathing process was similar to birds, and the rest is simply stated as fact. So much for facts or evidence being used in the scientific process. When conjecture is enough to move from theory to fact, God help us!
God actually makes Himself known to man through all that He has created. Here’s an interesting site that poses some simple questions and answers them in a non-threatening manner as to whether God exists:
I commend Marilyn Adamson for her presentation!
There are skeptics who will still question God’s existence and cling to the answers that science offers up. If you find yourself in that camp, you may want to consider how many times man has changed his scientific answers versus how many times God has changed His answers. Do you believe a finite man with his limited ability to grasp, much less comprehend the enormity of the world around him? Or do you believe an infinite God who tells us that He created it all?
Maybe the better questions are centered on how or why, but not who or what.
It’s entirely possible that God chose to wipe out the dinosaurs with a comet or with smoke from raging fires. It’s also possible that they died off in a world-wide flood and for lack of food following. Quite frankly, I don’t know and it really doesn’t matter to me. I’m just amused at how man fumbles around for an answer—any answer—as long as it doesn’t have anything to do with an answer spelled G-O-D.
