Whoa, there Misha woman! Who's wearing the blinders now? To jump
right back into the spiritual thread material that ended a few weeks ago,
[section deleted]. I formerly thought as you do. I was weaned in the
geology department of a large land grant university. But, oh, how ignorant
we are! The theory of evolution will always be just that - a theory - until
it is replaced by another popular attempt to explain our existence without
an understanding of God. How can we see beyond the boundary events of
creation and eternity from these mortal bodies?Remember how smart you
thought you were when you were 12 years old? How smart does you 12 year old
mentality appear now? Well, we (as a secular culture) are still in an
infantile state of ignorance. Every generation thinks they are the
penultimate cerebral authority and enlightened beyond measure. Or have you
not read Ecclesiastes?
Why not come down off your high horse and admit that people-kind is
really just making eloquent gibberish when it comes to trying to explain the
ultimate purpose of our existence. I'm really glad that you are "happy with
your gods", but just remember there is something much greater than you can
concieve of in all your vain imagination.
ECC 2:24 A man can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find
satisfaction in his work. This too, I see, is from the hand of God, 25 for
without him, who can eat or find enjoyment? 26 To the man who pleases him,
God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the
task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who
pleases God. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.
Apologies to the group for this diatribe.
