Once again, In discussing evolution vs creation with an agnostic/atheist he made this statement.
"You are all a bunch of weak minded people. You use your faith in God as a crutch so you don't have to accept reality. Science has proven there is no God, that we evolved, and you people are just too ignorant to accept the facts. You choose to rely on unproven ideas because it suits your conscience and that is what makes you weak!"
Well after I stopped laughing........I asked him this question....
Do you believe in inertia? (an object remains at rest or in a straight line unless affected by another object or force.)
He said Yes.....it is a law of physics.
I said good......then where did the force originate from that caused the big bang? Otherwise according to inertia all would have remained the same for eternity
He said,,,,,I don't know.
I said ,,Good........so far so good.
Now, do you know what the law of thermo-dynamics tell us?
He said Yes.......they say that you cannot get order from chaos.
I said good,,,your doing well so far.
I said,.,,,,If you cannot tell me where the energy force to cause the big bang came from, and it had to have an origin from somewhere, and you agree that you cannot get order from chaos.......then how is it that all the universe is in order to this day and has been for milinieums, and how is it that the earth we live on, if it were to change direction of it's axis more than 6 degrees we would all burn up or freeze solid?
That's order, and that order or energy must come from somewhere. Everything from energy to matter to inertia must have an origin according to the quantum physics. But you say that you do not know where those forces come from, you only understand the laws but cannot explain their origin.
He said ,,,,,,,,,true ,,,,,but at least i know they're there.
I said ...........so do I, but i accept and assign an origin to those forces and accept that they came from somewhere, and someone or something gave them birth.
He said,,,,,,ok,,,,,make your case!
I said cool..........now,,,,,,,,do you understand the equation 1 x 10 to the tenth power?
He said,,,,,,,,what is it?
I said,,it is 10,000,000,000 a hard to conceive figure agreed?
He said ,,,,what's your point?
I said ,,there are approximately 9 billion people in this world today,,,,,since time began there has never been more than 10 billion people alive at any time.
Yet for any one person to fulfill all the hundreds perhaps thousands of prophecies and scriptures written about the Messiah, the son of God,...... the probability of any one man in all of history being able to fulfill them all is the same equation as 1 x 10 to the tenth power.
He said,,,,,,,,I see where this is going..... but go on.
I said,,,,,,,If you will just do your research of the scriptures (which isn't going to harm anyone for doing so) then you will find that only one man in all of history fulfilled them all.....from the virgin birth to the crucifixion, and that man is Jesus Christ The Son of the Living God. And by the way, those scriptures were written 1000's of yrs before He was born so actually the equation is 10 times higher than what I gave you.......so you do the math!
I said,,,,,,,,listen, if you won't believe in what quantum physics, inertia, energy, matter, and math teach us,,,,,,,which is that you can't get something from nothing, and that you can't get order from chaos then it is not I that is weak minded but you. You see science doesn't oppose God,,,,it confirms Him.
Everything must have a source, and every source must have a origin or creation, and every creation must have a creator. And if there is a creator,,,,who is He? And if it is mathematically inconceivable that anyone other than Jesus Christ could be God,,,,,why do you even by testing the sciences still disbelieve?
He seemed quite discombobulated and had no answer.
I ask Him to join us weak minded folks after he did the proper research and if he needed any further help to get back to me,,,,,,,,for I love being of help to intellectuals. Not being snide here people,,,,,,but I detest being low-rated when I know the truth.
Folks,......God made it so easy even a child can do this.......and if you don't believe me why not as I told him,,,,,,,,"Don't take my word for it....I am just a convinced simple minded man, ask God the Creator yourself and see what happens."
