Thus Says The atheist… Featuring Phil Kulis

Atheism

The atheists keep saying, “There’s no evidence for God”. Yet they can’t explain anything.

Deep Time isn’t deep enough.

The Cambrian Explosion destroys any suggestions of a “fossil record”.

They can’t explain the stratification process of the earth’s crust.

They can’t explain how fossilization which is an extremely rapid process occurs in a process of stratification that supposedly takes millions of years.

They can’t explain the origin of information in DNA.

They can’t explain the origin of sexual reproduction.

They can’t explain irreducible complexity.

They can’t explain consciousness.

They can’t explain Life.

They have zero awareness of the personal relationship that believers have with God yet pretend to be more of an authority on someone’s personal relationship than the persons involved!

They have no understanding of the Bible.

They have no hope for anything beyond this brief mortal existence.

But somehow, they’re supposed to be believed when they say that they know with certainty that there is no God, the Creator and Savior.

In summary they have no knowledge, no understanding and no hope.

What’s the point or benefit of being an atheist? They have nothing to offer except a lonely misguided self-centered smugness. What a sad state of existence!

The Religion of Scientism…Featuring Phil Kulis

Posted in Phil Kulis with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 16, 2017 by paulthepoke

John 1:1-5 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

There are lots of things I don’t understand about the cosmos. But in all my years of reading what “scientists” say about the cosmos, it hasn’t instilled confidence in Scientism. On the contrary, the high priests of scientism mathmagically conjure up dark matter and dark energy. They claim it makes up 96% of the universe. Scientism has yet to say what or where it is. Especially now they’re finding out that dark matter doesn’t exist. Their God denying belief system appears more and more absurd.

Scientism attributes randomness to the cause of life. Yet, scientism can’t explain how unconscious, inanimate matter becomes self-aware, aware of other matter, and aware of a supposed goal and purpose beyond matter (that is, self-improvement for its own sake). Neither can scientism explain irreducible complexity. This doesn’t instill confidence in scientism.

When the high priests of scientism have continually changed their estimate of the age of the universe by exponential factors to shoehorn their belief system, it doesn’t instill confidence in their belief system of scientism.

Meanwhile atheists rail against those who believe in God and say they “reject science”. No, believers don’t “reject science”. Science is a method of investigation, not a belief system. Those who believe in God reject scientism which poses as scientific. Scientism summarily rejects anything whatsoever to do with the non-material, which is just as real as the material. It is the atheistic scientism types who are the ones rejecting reality.

The atheists accuse those who believe in God as believing in the “God of the gaps”. The areas of knowledge and understanding do not explain away God.  Scientism thinks God only exists beyond the areas “conquered” by scientism in the minds of believers who are presumed to lack scientific understanding. They believe as science advances scientism will eliminate God.

But that is the furthest thing from the truth. The truth is the explanation of all things confirms God. Their profession of the “God of the gaps” beyond the frontier of understanding actually proves God.

The atheistic advocates of scientism don’t have the answers. They’re just angry with a God they say doesn’t exists. They’re desperately trying to prove wrong the inevitability of their choice for eternity.

Genesis 1:1-2 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Trend Update: Bible Confirms Archaeology, August 2017

The Bible, 66 Books, 40 Authors…

August 8, 2017: This is a trend that has occurred in the last week or so. Archaeology digs around the Promised Land continue to unearth a wealth of information. The conclusion, the Bible is an accurate source of historical information.

Here’s to all the critics who say the Bible is just a little book of stories, a work of fiction. It has been a rough week for secular scholars, archaeologists, scientists, and atheists. Below are links to a list of recent articles noted in the news.

Genesis 1:26-27 God Created Man

Posted in Creation with tags , , , , on September 29, 2011 by paulthepoke

Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Man is made in the image of God. This point is made twice in the opening statement of verse 26. The point that humanity is made in the image of God is repeated a third time at the end of the passage in verse 27.

God introduces the idea of creating man in verse 26. “Let us make man…” In verse 27, He repeats on three occasions, that He created. God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. God is pretty emphatic that He is the One who made man. This was not left to random chance and primordial slime.

Note, the text does not say that an ape was made millions of years ago and over time it evolved into homo erectus then to neanderthal and eventually into modern day man. We still have monkeys, apes, and man, but no transitional species? The transitional species are extinct? How convenient. There is no statement in the Bible of “transitional species” or “missing links” any where in the text. Fossil evidence does not support intermediate, transitional, or missing links.

“If pressed about man’s ancestry, I would have to unequivocally say that all we have is a huge question mark. To date, there has been nothing found to truthfully purport as a transitional species to man…If further pressed, I would have to state that there is more evidence to suggest an abrupt arrival of man rather than gradual process of evolving.”

Richard Leakey, one of the world’s foremost paleoanthropologist, 1990

Man, in addition to apes and monkeys, was made on day six, not millions of years ago.

Man’s purpose is defined by God. The purpose of man is to rule over animal life. Man is to rule over fish, birds, cattle, and creeping things. He is to rule over the entirety of the earth.

“…I am quite conscious that my speculations run beyond the bounds of true science…it is a mere rag of an hypothesis with as many flaw(s) and holes as sound parts.”

Charles Darwin to Asa Gray

Romans 3:4 May it never be! Rather, let God be found true, though every man be found a liar, as it is written, “THAT YOU MAY BE JUSTIFIED IN YOUR WORDS, AND PREVAIL WHEN YOU ARE JUDGED.

God is truth.

Genesis 1:20 Day 5

Posted in Creation with tags , , , , , , , on September 9, 2011 by paulthepoke

 Genesis 1:20 Then God said, “Let the waters teem with swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth in the open expanse of the heavens.”

Day five once again pits God and the order He created versus man and how he explains the order of what he observes. What one believes will determine how one sees the world. God created water life first, then He created the birds that fill the sky. The following observations are courtesy of Ken Ham.

Bible:  Birds were created before land animals.

Science: Land animals were before birds.

Bible:  Whales were created before land animals.

Science: Land animals were before whales.

Bible: Land plants were created before sea creatures.

Science: Sea creatures were before land plants.

Bible: Starfish were created before earthworms.

Science: Earthworms were before starfish.

Bible: Birds were created before reptiles.

Science: Reptiles were before birds.

Bible: Whales were created before land animals.

Science: Land mammals were before whales.

Bible: Bats were created before land animals.

Science: Land mammals were before bats.

Bible: Birds were created before dinosaurs.

Science: Dinosaurs were before birds.

Bible: Dolphins were created before dinosaurs.

Science: Dinosaurs were before dolphins.

Bible: Pterosaurs was created before land reptiles.

Science: Land reptiles were before pterosaurs.

Bible: Flying insects were created before land insects.

Science: Land insects were before flying insects.

As one assesses the comparisons above, it is obvious there are clear contradictions in classification. One example is God classifies bats with the birds and flying creatures. Unlike man who classifies bats with mammals. Read Leviticus 11:13-19 ‘These, moreover, you shall detest among the birds; they are abhorrent, not to be eaten: the eagle and the vulture and the buzzard, and the kite and the falcon in its kind, every raven in its kind, and the ostrich and the owl and the sea gull and the hawk in its kind, and the little owl and the cormorant and the great owl, and the white owl and the pelican and the carrion vulture, and the stork, the heron in its kinds, and the hoopoe, and the bat. Look what is included at the long list of all these birds. God considers the bat as a bird.

In the Genesis verse above, look at the word “teem” or “sharats” in the Hebrew. It means to teem, swarm, or multiply according to Strong’s Concordance. Look at the word “swarms” or “sherets” in the Hebrew. It means teeming or swarming things. The idea is that sea life was created with great abundance. The same idea of abundance is communicated in regards to bird life. The text is noted with a “polel” verb form in the Hebrew describing the “flying” activity of the birds. It indicates a swarming flight.

Darwin himself in his 1859 book The Origin of the Species did not actually address how species originated. The creation of species he later called an “abominable mystery.” Yet science holds this man’s views as the foundation of their work and world view.

God created the world in His order. God’s order is not the same as science. Isaiah 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.

Genesis 1:16-19 Here Comes the Sun

Posted in Creation with tags , , , , , , , on August 13, 2011 by paulthepoke

Genesis 1:16-19 God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.

Notice the repetition of the purpose of these two lights. The greater light is to govern the day. This is restated two times in the verses above. The lesser light is to govern the night. This is restated two times in the verses above. According to Strong’s Concordance, the idea and definition of “govern” is as follows. The Hebrew word is “memshalah”. It means: rule, dominion, realm, domain.

The sun and the moon are to provide light on the earth as noted in the verses above. This is a restatement of Genesis 1:15 “and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so.

The sun and the moon are to separate light from dark as noted in the verses above. This is a restatement of Genesis 1:14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night…

The Psalmist confirms these concepts and purposes of the sun and moon in Psalm 136:8-9 The sun to rule by day, for His lovingkindness is everlasting, the moon and stars to rule by night, for His lovingkindness is everlasting.

God is very clear about the intent and purpose of the creation of these heavenly bodies.

Isaiah 40:26 Lift up your eyes on high and see who has created these stars, the One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name; because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power, not one of them is missing.

As of 2010, Universe Today and European Space Agency have attempted to estimate the number of stars in the universe. The Milky Way Galaxy has approximately 200 billion stars. The average galaxy contains between 1011 and 1012 stars. Astronomers estimate there are approximately 100 billion to 1 trillion (10% variance at best) galaxies in the universe. When the number of galaxies is multiplied by the number of stars per galaxy, you get between 1022 and 1024 stars in the universe. Remember, this is the best estimate of man based on what he can observe. There are likely more.

Consider Isaiah 40:26 from a semantic perspective. Various linguistic estimates account for one million words in the English language. Think of the vocabulary of God to name ALL of these stars. All stars are accounted and personally named. Our vocabulary is ridiculously limited in comparison. This number of stars created and noted makes Matthew 10:30 a walk in the park from a counting perspective.

Matthew 10:30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. –Jesus

All of this is “good” or “towb” in the Hebrew. It is defined in Strong’s Concordance as: good, pleasant, agreeable (to the senses); pleasant (to the higher nature); rich, valuable in estimation; appropriate, becoming.

We should know the drill, the evening is the start of the day. There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.
