The Case For God (3)

Jan 11, 2023

‘Through everything God made, they can clearly see His invisible qualities.’Romans 1:20 NLT

They say, ‘There are none so blind as those who will not see!’ Richard Dawkins, the well–known atheist said, ‘It is absolutely safe to say that, if you meet somebody who claims not to believe in evolution, that person is ignorant, stupid or insane.’ But the truth is, most great scientific minds from the past—brilliant men who founded and developed key disciplines of science—were creationists. For example:

(1) Physics: Newton, Faraday, Maxwell, Kelvin.

(2) Chemistry: Boyle, Dalton, Pascal, Ramsay.

(3) Biology: Ray, Pasteur, Mendel, Linnaeus.

(4) Geology: Steno, Woodward, Brewster, Agassiz.

(5) Astronomy: Kepler, Galileo, Herschel, Maunder.

Were these men ignorant, stupid or insane? Sir Isaac Newton managed to discover the composition of light, deduce the laws of motion, invent calculus, compute the speed of sound, and define universal gravitation—while believing our universe ‘could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being.’

In a 2007 Newsweek magazine survey, 78% of those polled attributed creation to God, while only 13% believed in naturalistic evolution. Don’t be intimidated by nonbelievers. Push back! The Bible says: ‘They know the truth about God because He has made it obvious to them. For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see His invisible qualities… So they have no excuse for not knowing God.’ (Romans 1:18–20 NLT) Yes, there is a God—and He wants you to know Him on a personal level.

SoulFood: Isa 30–33, Luke 2:8–20, Ps 71:1–16, Pro 2:1–2
