The more I talk about Christ with others the more I’m made acutely aware that our society’s hang up with faith is not at all a failure to believe in God. Nearly all people acknowledge, or are at least open to, the existence of God. Where our culture stumbles is in believing in personal depravity. We can all recognize that we have fallen far short of perfection, that we sometimes make poor choices, and that we sometimes hurt others. But we refuse (and adamantly do not want) to believe that these imperfect and hurtful actions are sins, that they are wicked, and that place us in rebellion to God. By failing to believe that our own wicked decisions and actions have placed us at odds with our creator, we can see no need for salvation, and no necessity for a Savior.
Richard Dawkins is arguably the world’s leading authority on Evolutionary Biology. You know…Evolution. Darwinism – a puddle of mud was struck by lightning and a micro organism was created, evolved to apes, and eventually to man. That’s an over simplification of what we were taught in school, but the general idea. Dawkins is also a leading proponent of atheism. Listen here to how he answers the question of where the creative intelligence behind life on earth came from.
Rather than believe in God, he suggests we should first believe in evolution. Then he suggests we should further believe DNA was planted here on Earth by aliens. Interesting. So…how did the aliens come into existence?
This clip is taken from the Ben Stein narrated documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. The full movie is posted below. This is an incredibly interesting movie and definitely worth your time. It is also streaming on Netflix. It should be noted this movie was not produced in the name of Christianity. Ben Stein is Jewish. This movie was produced with the intent to preserve scientists’ diminishing right to research the possibility of our universe having an intelligent creator.
