Creationists Wonít Evolve
I saw this phrase pinned on a backpack one day and I was struck by the intended meaning of it. The person wearing is confessing that we have not evolved as much as he has. This atheist got me thinking about atheism and the debates between atheism and creationism. One believes that the world evolved as a result of a big bang, and another believes that a creator intelligently designed the world. The atheist wearing the pin must be very adamant about being right, but I had to ask why he cared so much. What was he fighting for? If there is no God, no creator, no architect of this world, then why would the belief in one matter to someone who doesnít believe in one? Are the atheists trying this hard to combat the views of Judaism and Islam as well? Something about Christianity must really offend atheists for them to attack creationists so fiercely. They look down on us saying that our minds are inferior to theirs and that we are un-evolved. This intensity burns in them so fiercely that they must quench our false teachings.
Scientists spend their lives trying to explain the world and discover how things work. From an atheistís point of view that is such a waste of time. You only have one life to live, and according to their teaching when we die nothing happens. You simply just cease to exist. Instead of living life however they please and pursuing wealth and personal gain, they choose to seek after answers to some of lifeís biggest questions. Every person alive longs for more. We always want more. There is a desire to seek for more of anything to fill the emptiness that is inside of us. We all know what this emptiness feels like. Either we have evolved this emptiness over time, or it was the response to our separation from our creator through the fall of man. What would atheists say is the reason for this emptiness? Evolution should have evolved this emptiness out of us in order for us to be more efficient.
Atheism has never been the main belief system in the world. The majority of the people on this planet believe in a god or many gods, or at least in a morality system that teaches them right from wrong. Atheism struggles to answer questions that religion provides answers for. Without religion we could not understand the concept of good and evil. Without the understanding of good and evil, why would we care about justice? We would not even have a purpose for existing at all. Science itself combats atheism showing us how complicated a single strand of DNA is and telling us that matter cannot be created. It is scientifically impossible for a big bang to happen without a first cause. There are so many scientific rules that atheism ignores and religion answers that it begs the question: is it atheism that cannot evolve instead of Christians?
