TW: End Time Scoffers


Notice the following from the latest TW News & Prophecy from the Living Church of God:

End-time scoffers.

Professor Richard Dawkins is well known for his philosophical conjecture that life came into existence by chance evolutionary processes. As a scientist, Dr. Dawkins prefers to lecture on philosophy, ridiculing people for their “irrational” belief in God. He usually “… declines to talk in San Francisco and New York; these cities are too gloriously godless, as far as he is concerned. ‘As an atheistic lecturer, you are rather wasting your time,’ he says. He prefers the Bible Belt, where controversy is raw.”

In a recent interview, Dr. Dawkins commented, “Religion teaches you to be satisfied with nonanswers. It’s a sort of crime against childhood.” Yet he also admits, “I did not end up as broadly educated as my Cambridge colleagues, but I graduated probably better equipped to write a book on my chosen subject” (The New York Times, September 19, 2011). Perhaps that is why elements of his arguments ignore basic understandings of other scientific disciplines.

Dr. Dawkins is highly intelligent, yet apparently refuses to even consider arguments for the intelligent design of the universe–a stance he has taken since he was a youth. He admits there could be all-powerful god-like beings “out there” who came to that point through evolution, yet he refuses to admit an Eternal God could have created the universe and humanity.

Evolutionary theory fails to give “meaning” to life and cannot explain the real future of all mankind. The Bible states, “The fool has said in his heart, ‘There is no God'” (Psalm 14:1). The Apostle Paul warned about those who are “always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Timothy 3:7).

Dr. Dawkins made a very revealing statement when he said about a respected colleague’s belief in a personal God, “I just don’t get it.” The Bible reveals that an understanding of spiritual things must come from God (1 Corinthians 2:7-14). One of the keys to gaining that understanding comes from humility and being willing to learn from the word of God (Isaiah 66:2). The apostle Peter prophesied “that scoffers will come in the last days” and they would ridicule God and the Scriptures (2 Peter 2-3).

As a scientist, I have long known that proponents of evolution treat the subject more like a religious view than a scientific theory. This is somewhat also what the Ben Stein movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed revealed (see Ben Stein’s Expelled).

Which was?

Scientists who challenge too many claims associated with evolution are shunned by many academic institutions, as there is a tremendous amount of pressure at most “leading” academic institutions to squelch research that is not in support of evolution because it will affect their beliefs.

Evolution, as the explanation for the origin of life, is unscientific and false. It also requires students to accept a belief that violates other known laws of biological science, and it develops a scoffer’s attitude towards truth.

Perhaps I should add that when the world does not end in 2012, around December 22, 2012 I expect scoffers to abound related to prophecy (2 Peter 2-3).
