What's New
Petri Dish Experiment

Author requests article critique


Once upon a midnight dreary, in the underground experimental lab of Dr Weiry, lights flickered and smoke rose from the bunsen burners scattered around this make-shift lab on the outskirts of a run down town. Dr Weiry painstakingly pours over his many formulas and potions trying to find just the right mix. Like most scientists, the road of discovery comes wrought with many detours and dead ends. Endless hours of clinical trials and errors in an attempt to uncover that one combination that produces the results sought after. On this particular night Dr. Weiry was growing extremely anxious and flustered as his continued attempts to prove once and for all that the impossible was possible.

Dr. Weiry takes out his needle like instrument to inject yet another mixture into the petri dish on his lab table. A simple glance around the lab would reveal, even to the least discriminating eye, what would appear to be hundreds of petri dishes, each one growing some sort of ooze- like substance. The dimly lit laboratory gives it an other-earthly appearance. With his unkempt hair and disheveled clothes, Dr Weiry looks more like a mad scientist, than a serious intellectual. He works with an intensity just this side of obsession. After each attempt to produce whatever it is he is trying to produce he writes feverishly in his lab journal, the results of each experiment and mumbles some incomprehensibly remarks.

On this night though, things would be different. For Dr Weiry was about to discover a hidden secret he was here-to-fore unable to uncover.

In the far rear of this dimly lit laboratory, out of sight and forgotten, lays a petri dish fermenting and birthing forth a life form of sinister proportions. Left unattended and away from the watchful eye of Dr Weiry, this life form has been growing undetected and undisturbed for the last several months. Unbeknown to him it was starting to take over his lab one petri dish at a time. The misshapen glob of primordial ooze was seeping into every nook and cranny of that dingy dungeon lab stealthily absorbing all other life in the lab as it attempts to mold and conform to the ever changing environment. Not really a life form and not really an anti-matter either, this experiment gone awry could not be classified in any scientific journal of modern science. Dr Weiry had discovered a new genre of science. To think he did not even know it...

Years have passed since Dr Weiry's lab experiment got its start, but at the time of the retelling of this story, the signs of Dr Weiry's new life can be seen everywhere. It not only took over that one dark lab in the middle of nowhere but it has grown to take on a new form entirely, cloaking and masking itself down through the generations. The true nature of this creation of Dr Weiry's has yet to be truly exposed. Many have embraced this life form without really knowing it. It had become so commonplace it is no longer considered strange or foreign.

Many modern scientists have embraced Dr Weiry's accidental discovery as a real breakthrough in scientific experimentation and even gone on to improve upon his life creating methods. All the while that once insignificant lowly life form has grown to godlike dimensions. Left unattended and unchecked it continues to mutate and consume more and more of the life that it encounters. A parasite, without a real life of its own, dependent on the host organisms it attaches itself to for its very strength and existence. Finding new hosts requires a ravenous appetite that is never satisfied, for the bigger it gets the more energy it needs to sustain itself. Those who have attempted to uncover the true nature of this organism have been met with untold opposition, criticism and disdain. Rejection of Dr. Weiry's experiments, or labeling them as a bad accident, have left many in the scientific field discredited.

So goes the tale of ‘Dr Weiry's Midnight dreary’ and the discovery of a new life form.

Just as the petri dish experiment, when left unattended and without direction, grew into a parasitic anti- matter, lacking form or function; so would be a world without GOD. When you take out the divine creator, the one who watches over His creation, you get nothing more then a bad lab experiment gone astray. Without natural order and laws regulating life and reproduction the world as we know it could not exist.

Thus is the fallacy of those who embrace evolution. It is a lab experiment gone wrong. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. We are not some bad lab experiment but a well-designed, GOD- ordained creation, with a God ordained purpose.

But those who are waiting for the Lord will have new strength; they will get wings like eagles: running, they will not be tired, and walking, they will have no weariness. Isaiah 40:31 (BBE)

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
