Parallel Universes?!!

Atheists who rely on evolution can really get irritated when you challenge their views on the origins of life. They will argue that evolution is scientific fact, but have difficult addressing the question of origins. Their thinking goes like this, there was a pond of goo that was struck by something, maybe lightning creating amino acids that formed the building blocks of life. Over time, everything evolved so that we have the life that is walking on the earth today.

Okay. Professor who put the goo in the pond? This is the question that would get the poor college sophomore in trouble with his biology, chemistry, and/or physics professor. In normal settings the professor would proceed to ridicule the student for asking such a bad question.

Dinesh D'Souza revealed that now the atheist professors have a response to students who would dare challenge their views on evolution - parallel universes. This discussion appeared in an article by D'Souza entitled "When Science Points to God." In addressing what evolutionists has termed the "Genesis problem," D'Souza writes:

Science is the search for natural explanations for natural phenomena, and what could be more embarrassing than the finding that a supernatural intelligence transcending all natural laws is behind it all?

Consequently many physicists are exploring an alternative possibility: multiple universes. This is summed up as follows: “Our universe may be but one of perhaps infinitely many universes in an inconceivably vast multiverse.” Folger says that short of invoking a benevolent creator” this is the best that modern science can do. For contemporary physicists, he writes, this “may well be the only viable nonreligious explanation” for our fine-tuned universe.

In other words, the evolutionists reject any role played by God and suggest that somehow we got here through some parallel universe. I guess you can think of evil Spock from the old Star Trek series. So what is next, Space Aliens? If this is the best that they have to offer, there is no need for Christians to be intimidated by their arguments. Paraphrasing something I heard a couple of weeks ago, the more you stare into a telescope or the deeper you look into a microscope the more that you will see the handiwork of God. So, Professor, exactly who put the infinite number of multiple universes in place.

The heavens are telling of the glory of God;
And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. - Ps. 19:1

10 Ways to Pray for Barack Obama

Immediately following the elections, J. Lee Grady, an editor with Charisma Magazine, wrote a column encouraging Christians to pray for President-elect Obama. Grady made it no secret that he supported McCain. Still, he wrote "when I got up this morning, I turned all my attention to the fact that Jesus Christ is still on the throne." Grady has called for all Christians, regardless of political affiliation to pray for President-elect Obama. Some of his key points are below:

1. Pray for Obama’s protection.

2. Cover his wife and daughters in prayer.

3. Pray that Obama will govern with God’s wisdom.

4. Ask God to keep our president humble.

5. Pray for wise and righteous advisers to surround him.

6. Ask for the spirit of reconciliation.

7. Pray that Obama will adopt pro-life convictions.

8. Bind all evil forces assigned to manipulate our president.

9. Pray that Obama’s door will remain open to the church.

10. Pray that our nation will enjoy God’s peace and blessing during the Obama administration.

You can find Grady's article here in its entirety: 10 Ways to Pray for Barack Obama. See also Dr. Del Tackett's post entitled A New Day: Praying for the President-Elect.

On that note, we should also continue to pray for President Bush. 1 Tim. 2:1-2.

Enough of the political commentary and back to more exciting discussions.

A Mother is Persecuted for Her 4-Year Old's Wisdom

At a blog entitled, The Virtuous Woman, a young mother in the United Kingdom tells the story of how her 4-year old daughter came to the understanding that she cannot be good on her own. The child then told her mother that Jesus can help her become good. See A Four Year Old Who Knows She Needs a Saviour. In the post, the lady relates her excitement over her daughter's understanding. The child understands a lot more than many lifetime church attendees. In Matthew, Jesus quoted from the Book of Psalms stating
Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babes thou hast prepared praise for thyself.
Matt. 21:16. The radical atheists got wind of the young lady's post and started screaming child abuse. Sad to say, England's version of the Department of Children and Families is launching an investigation. Prayers are needed for this young lady and the protection of her family. Prayers are also needed for the atheists that they come to a knowledge of the truth.

I wonder if I need to proceed with caution before commenting on the wisdom of my 4-year old son.
