Intelligent Design

Today's topic is a quick review in evaluation. Last night we went to the movie "Expelled: no intelligence allowed" by Ben Stein, and it was a real brain picker. It is a documentary on the scientific study of Intelligent Design ( God made everything) vs. Darwinism (we evolved.... from what?) Ben Stien did an awesome job with the facts. I have to believe that most of us there (in the smallest theater in the megaplex) were there for religious reasons. Stien doesn't clam to be a religious person. His problem is the blocking of free speech. All I can say is that as a religious "freak", I am excited to see non-religious "freaks" starting to take note of the dumbing down of America and the loss of our Constitutional rights. Which if you read the constitution, you will notice were given to us by our "Creator". Basically the premise is this in a nut shell: Darwinism believes that we all evolved from a single cell. Where did it come from? They don't even know themselves. Their two most popular theories are piggy back crystal mutations, or another evolved planet seeded our planet (aliens?). But where did that life form come from? They don't know. But all the Darwin teaching scientist, the majority, won't consider any other option and anyone who does is a trouble maker (can't be controlled by the government). It all boils down to money, and being able to control the masses. If they don't believe in God they have no hope, and people with no hope are much more easy to control. For those of you still pondering this, here is something to consider (borrowed from my bff's dh): Where did the pencil come from? A tree? Where did the tree come from? A seed? Where did the seed come from? A tree? Where did the tree come from? A seed? This is a circle theory and is the very definition of insanity. But this is what Darwinism is teaching. Shaking my head here.

When we visited the Creation Museum in KY, the kids got to take a class on dinosaurs and how they relate to the bible. Again, for those of you not sure, visit the book of Job:4 ~ where there is mention of a "behemoth".

Here is dd making her own Behemoth.

The class was taught by the man who made all the dino's for the museum, including this one!

Here is dd with her finished "Behemoth"! Good job B!!!
Blessings, Beth Ann

just saw Expelled; the fact that Ben Stein isn't trying to win any popularity contests helps to validate his message... i gather that his goal is to promote free thought, especially more thinking about the worldviews that drive American academia

Haven't seen the movie but I've always been amazed at how much "faith" it must take to believe in Darwinism. You read that right. To me, it is much harder to believe that all creation spontaneously evolved from pond scum than it is to believe in a loving all-knowing all-powerful creator. And as for the so called "evidence of evolution" as realized in the diversity of species, hello. God, being all knowing, knew about the flood and what He would ask Noah to do, therefore created Eden's creatures in a pure form that in the future would be able to evolve into the varieties that would be necessary to populate the world, IMO.
