Though I am not an expert in the field of biology, I am willing to still point out the errors in the fields of science when either the evidences are contradictory or the conclusions do not fit in with the evidences. Hence, these are the reasons why I started this blog article. After reading a brief description of the evidences from the author himself, I began to realize a couple of mistakes in his form of thinking:
“Among the wonders that science has uncovered about the universe, no subject has sparked more fascination and fury than evolution. Yet in all the ongoing debates about creationism and its descendant, “intelligent design,” one element of the controversy is rarely mentioned: the evidence, the empirical truth of evolution by natural selection. And that evidence is vast, varied, and magnificent, drawn from a huge spectrum of scientific inquiry ranging from genetics, anatomy, and molecular biology to paleontology and geology.”
Yes, evidence is one of the many things that should always be included when discussing evolution. I’m not sure if the author gets the picture but let’s summarize the facts about the subject. For starters, let me point out that (1) mutations process takes a matter of time which has its (2) high odds against the goals trying to be accomplished. Not only does the author candidly admit these observations, the problem I don’t think he mentions is that natural processes do not make ‘decisions’ on their own; in fact, rarely if ever something would produce something intentionally complex i.e., specified complexity.
Sure, there are plenty of sugar, salt, and ice crystals that can be made at random from the natural environment; however, the working world of nature does not produce something with a specific intention in mind e.g., the hand, the eye, or the foot. While I continue to discuss further into the topic of evolution, I want to show you that one of top motivations to write my book from an Atheist’s perspective is to show the problems with evolution and its bunk sciences overall.
Besides being emotionally wound up on some of these issues, I seem to have discovered that much of my articles writings have gotten longer by the topic. I think one of the goals to achieve for both this year and the next is to maintain a simple briefness on the issue of writing. Unfortunately, I have not retained the ability to do that since some of these blog articles have gone beyond the matter of 300 words. While I may type of these poignant articles through my word processor, I was not paying attention to how much time I have spent on fleshing out and describing all the information that I need to share on this post.
So here’s the note: K.I.T.S.
*(Keep It Tremendously Short).
Hopefully, if I keep this memo in mind, I won’t spend so much time getting caught up with creating a humongous blog article.
Although I have been running this blog for almost a year, the predominant reasons for the lack of article supplications have been due to a couple of things, but mostly because of my two jobs and my obsessions with outlining my next book.
You see, I have two writing projects: one that is non-fiction while the other is completely fictional. Unfortunately I was working with the non-fictional project rather than the other. At this point, I created a substantial outline for the books line of argumentation and a few subtitles to go along with the subject. Not only have I found the need to complete this project amazingly difficult, I also discovered there has been a tremendous need to update the other things as well including this blog. Although I won’t be coming back immediately, I will be touching upon other projects to get more of this work going so that everyone can enjoy.
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and continue to be on the lookout.
Before I continue onward with exposing the faultiness of ‘evolutionary thought,’ I want to touch upon a few other things concerning the style of writing. First off, there is an immense amount of so called ‘indie authors’ who do very little or almost no reading whatsoever and have the nerve to go on and publish a book, expecting to receive all kinds of praises from readers across the globe.
While I may not be the biggest ‘fiction fan’ on the face of the earth i.e., possessed with the obsession of reading anything fictional, I do read fiction. Not only have I learned a ton of benefits from these novels because they are entertaining, but also because I can make observations on how these sceneries and words are constructed in the realm of fiction. In fact, some of even the best ideas I have for books come from other pre-existing works.
For instance, the idea for the novel I am writing originates from the book ‘The Help’ in the sense of writing styles and other ideas. If I did not read books, I think my style of writing would be worse than what you (the reader) would have to endure. In fact, I would probably have a very limited vocabulary and have no place to critique anyone else’s style of writing.
If you want to improve your form of writing, there has to be a need to read and doing lots of it.
Before I make into discussing religious Atheism, let me touch upon another subject from my previous weeks of Christian thought. I have oft repeated my dislike for cliques for a variety of reasons, mostly because I tend to think these produce factional distinctions within the Christian church that either hinders people from developing their walks further or fellow-shipping within the church. My personal pet peeve when it comes to cliques is the major sin that comes with the package.
If the church had something that dispelled believers effectively, I would often assume that the origins were with the gossip. Cliques often happen to make matters tremendously difficult, especially whenever someone tries to develop a clarification or a misapprehension that came from the rumor. Rather than allowing someone to continue in peace; much of the drama continues where the person becomes alienated and ostracized. I have personally had a few bad run-ins with issues that were not truly resolved mostly because of something said that were partially or entirely misunderstood.
Sometimes I wish church would repent of these wrongs; this would allow the church to focus on other matters that could really benefit the surrounding community. At least that would be a start of true revivalism i.e., emphasizing the church’s needs for personal conversion and renewal, not creating the ‘ideal environment.’
Apart from the topic of Christian writing, I want to gently touch upon another topic that I have been dying to discuss about for months. I promise you there are plenty of reasons why I decided to write my book and exposing atheism is just one of them. While I continue to work on writing blog posts on the topic, I want to point out that my book isn’t all about mocking or decrying Atheism; rather, I intend to create ‘shock’ for the Atheist reader. While atheists might find amusement to religion in general, I tend to find this as means of opportunity to turn the tables around.
You see, as a writer and a Christian I see atheism as this type of anti-intellectual outlet for a vast amount of responsibilities. I mean, if you’re going to criticize religion, specifically Christianity as being anti-intellectual, you should look at all the tenable theories they all postulate as substitute for legitimately feasible Christian doctrine:
- Instead of saying ‘God created the universe’, most Atheists postulate that ‘aliens’ did (which has very little or no proof).
- Instead of saying ‘God created man’, most Atheists will assure the core belief that monkeys were our ancestors (with the use of DNA tests and an incomplete fossil record).
- Instead of succumbing to the mathematical and physical impossibilities of evolutionary survival, most Atheists attempt to dispel this thinking by postulating that time and a scientifically rigged computer program proves the exception.
- Instead of succumbing to the big bang theory, Atheists have developed another explanation with the multiple theories of universe regression (again, no proof).
- Instead of accepting the fact that one needs a universal standard that transcends humanity (as mentioned previously here), most Atheists naively assert that you can be good without God (even though they cannot answer this question: What moral form of conduct should we use to determine someone’s actions as good?)
Again, these so called ‘theories,’ ‘hypothesis,’ or what I like to call random guesses are all but cheesy excuses to explain the obvious: God’s existence. Sadly, I am only half way through their anti-intellectual ramblings; there are another set of practices they use to get themselves out there that makes them resemble the same religious zealots they criticize. While I am going to delve into those topics until later on, I will tell you this about atheism: don’t believe their arguments; they’re remotely intellectual.
As already mentioned a forehand (I seem to grow fond of using that previous word), I want to point out a development of the fiction frontier i.e., the life of a Christian writer. While I am not the biggest fan of the ‘conversion narrative’ of Christian fiction, I am beginning to notice a change in the areas of this genre. Remember that novel that I review a couple months back, you know, Most Likely?
While I have had the opportunity to read and check his book, I also had the chance to look at his blog and his helpful commentaries on the concept of the biblical Messiah. Even though I neither inquired about his philosophy about Christian writing nor read his entire manuscript, I can assure you that he began exploring an entirely different aspect to the field of Christian writing. Part of that includes the understanding for the reader to understand what it really means to be Christian.
Conversion is only half of the battlefield; walking and aligning with God is another thing, but that’s just one aspect. What about exposing others for their sins? How about resolving conflicts at Church? Who are the other heroes besides the church leaders? These are the other areas which Christian writers (like me) are beginning to explore and to write about. I think too many people are placing stock in the field of just writing for the sake of evangelism not realizing there are multiple ways to make Christian writing better.
