Random collisions with my brain

A question 4 U {actually a couple} March 1, 2007

     For science, my mom has been having me read a book from our church library entitled Unlocking the Mysteries of Creation by Dennis R. Peterson. In this book, the author clames that civilization is on a downwards decline, not just spiritually, but also technologically. The book clames that to believe that civilizations are advancing in technology is to buy into the evolutionary theory that everything is evolving into something better. The author uses examples like the gigantic ancient pyramids, the huge statues found on Easter Island, and the self air conditioned Myan temples to claim that ancient civilizations were more advanced thousands of years ago than we are today. But is he right? I know that there is some sort of law of physics that says that anything left to itself will deteriorate, but what about something not left to itself? Are the awe-inspiring seven wonders of the world more wondrous than our modern space-age technology? To be honest, I don’t think so. But I would like to hear your opinion on this subject. What really makes a civilization more advanced? Is poverty more rampant now than it was in ancient times? Is our environment on a decline?   

 

    One thing that this book did mention that I thought was very interesting was that ancient Myan temples, even to this day, are self air conditioned. Passages are ingeniously designed to allow air traffic through the building, so that even in the hottest days of summer the building stays cool. Now compare that to the truckloads of money we spend on air-conditioning every year. Man, if we could use natural air conditioning, that would alleviate a lot of Al Gore’s problems wouldn’t it?

A comparison of evolution and abortion September 3, 2006

Somehow I had never compared those two together before. Well anyway, I was having a little random collision with my brain, and I thought I would share with you guys my findings [no I’m not talking about gooey icky brain muck, I’m talking about my thoughts.] Some of you will go, “well duh!” And some of you might find this very interesting, as did I.     Well we all know that our wonderful friends the evolutionists say that we were “evolved from monkeys.” Now, if we were evolved from monkeys when did humans become humans? What, precisely, makes a human a human? As far as I can tell, according to the theory of evolution, there is no straight forward place where humans began. I mean, sure, most scientists may say that at so and so point in the “process of evolution” monkey became man. But where exactly is that point?  Does this not sound like another modern argument we have? Ya, abortion. In the dispute over abortion pro-abortionist will argue that until the baby is out of the womb, or at a certain point in its life process, human life has not yet begun. And again, who’s to say where exactly baby becomes human? So what these controversial issues have in common is a necessity to pin point the start of human life. Does this not shock you? How can you go around saying you don’t know how or when you became what you are, but you’re certain that you came from that which you can not understand? That is if you are an evolutionist. You see a creationist believes that humans will and can, only produce humans. So the moment a baby is formed it’s a human. Is that not a whole lot simpler than the never ending question marks left by the theory of evolution?  

  Evolution has no definite aspects to it. No definite way life could have evolved. No definite reason for living. And no definite beginning to life. No matter how far back in the process of evolution you go there is always something that came nothing. There either has to be a substance that has been around literally forever. Or a substance that came from nothing. This substance sounds a bit supernatural to me. Now I ask you, is it easier to believe that we, humans, evolved from apes, which evolved from the first living cell, which evolved from… thin air. Or is it easer to believe that a loving God created us? Either way we can’t explain it. But I know that I, for one, would rather be a child of God that an ancestor of King Kong.
