The first verse of the Bible reads, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth...” In a recent podcast we saw this verse as the foundation for great misrepresentation and great truth. Think, “In the beginning”, what beginning? Is it the beginning of the universe? Watch this short vlog then listen to the full podcast of the same name for more details.
We put the Bible aside and examined what science has revealed about the macro and micro complexity of every aspect of nature. Watch this short vlog then listen to the full podcast of the same name.
Atheists will tell you there is no scientific proof of God nor can there be. They have a materialistic view of the universe that, by definition, excludes God. Though this philosophy is pervasive in the world today, there is much evidence that reveals a great deal of willing ignorance in that belief. Is science the only source of truth? Does science really validate godlessness? On this podcast, we review a number of scientific ideas and questions that demonstrate the other side of the argument, namely, that a super-intelligent Creator is behind the existing of this universe and all life.
Since the introduction of the philosophy of evolution by Charles Darwin in 1859, there has been a raging debate on the origin of life. Darwinian evolution has become entrenched both as a scientific and social precept. Those who subscribe to the belief that God designed and created this universe are painted as superstitious deniers of reality. Even more concerning, radical scientists are advocating social restrictions on Christians in particular to prevent their "delusion" from spreading to others, even their children! Is there reason to believe what used to be accepted by most scientists - that God really did create our world? Are Christians truly out of touch with reality? Did God create or did we evolve?
For people like us, there are a myriad of proofs that we can see all around us that unequivocally prove the existence of God. We see the earth, the heavens, humanity, science and engineering and we nod our heads in the satisfaction that God is indeed behind it all. Yet, there is a world full of those who, based upon their intellect, their expertise and their own study who have concluded that God is merely a figment of some men’s imaginations and a waste of time. So, what do we do with all of this? Can God’s existence be proven? Does God’s existence need to be proven? Are we deluding ourselves with wishful thinking? Is it really a form of mental disease to believe in God? Are there good reasons to be a believer? Stay with us as we face these questions head on as we ask that penetrating question: Does God exist?
It is often assumed that faith and reason are enemies. It is often assumed that faith and science cannot get along. Based on these assumptions, the Bible seems to take on the role of a book that holds people back from the present century and makes them somewhat backwards in their thinking and irrelevant in their contributions...but is this really the case? Are faith and reason incompatible – unable to co-exist and contribute to someone’s life? Stay with us as we look into the relationship between faith, reason, science and the Bible.
