Why is it that the proponants of Intelligent Design cannot beleive that God, Jehovah, Allah, or the creator of your choice, is not powerful enough to create Evolution? Is their creator not smart enough? Or is their creator trying to dumb it down for us? Nor does S/He have enough patience to wait millions or billions of years. S/He can only act in periods of thousands of years, despite the fact that S/He has existed forever. Apparently, until 6000 years ago, their God was a lazy God.
The Vatican, ironically enough, has suggested that we should listen to science, if only to understand the natural world.
Back in the days of Galileo and Copernicus, the Catholic church allowed the model of a heliocentric solar system, which goes against the literal word of the Bible:
4 One generation passeth away...cometh, but the earth abideth for ever.
5 The sun also ariseth...goeth down
6 The wind goeth...returneth
7 All the rivers run...return again.
Genesis 15:12,17 - “And when the sun was going down” and “when the sun went down.” Psalms 104:19: “the sun knoweth his going down.”
1.Chronicles 16:30 "Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved."
My theory is that the more we learn about the natural world the greater God, Allah, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster is for creating something so complex. I think it's the height of Human arrogance to make God appear stupid, backward and limited.
And, ladies, remember: If you beleive in the literal truth of the Bible; that it can never be untrue and can never change, you have to accept Genesis 3:16, 4:19, 21:10; Exodus 21:7; Leviticus 12:1-5; and Deuteronomy 21:10-13. Women are the property of men. They cannot own property. They are worth less than men. That is Biblical truth!
