I Evolutionians, Chapter 1

Quote from the video:

—<Quote begins>—

Contrary to the reasoning of my Christian friends  who use the popular canard that “Genesis doesn’t  have to be taken as plainly written because  God only wrote it that way for the Israelites,  who were too simple to comprehend the ‘scientific  sophistication’ of evolution,” this was all very easy for an average child like myself to  grasp. If God had used evolution to create,  it would have been very easy for him to convey.

Imagine the following:

“Long ago, before there was man,  God created the first living thing,  and that first thing slowly changed,  and its descendants changed,  and eventually they turned into every  living thing that has ever lived on earth.  And eventually came mankind!”

1st  Evolutionians, Chapter 1 (Made-Up Version)

Explaining the idea of evolution in Genesis  would have been extremely easy to do should  God have wanted to. The fact is, he didn’t. 

Compromising the plain reading in one area of  scripture (Genesis) and then telling people  they should take another area as plainly written  (the gospels) is arbitrary,  illogical, and inconsistent.  Far from cerebral, it seems like special pleading  and mentally incohesive. And for linear-thinking  individuals like myself, it provides little  intellectual satisfaction whatsoever.

—<Quote ends>—

I do wish the preachers, the pastors, and the theologians either stuck with the Bible, or walked away from the Bible… instead of going down the intellectually insulting “let’s pretend” road.

But when your salary and a comfortable living is on the line, incoherent babble starts to make sense.

Tidbit: if someone starts offering theistic evolutionary cant, grab a copy of Theistic Evolution and smack him upside the head.

Be a man.

Stop with the incoherent career-protecting waffling.

Stop being a fearful coward.

And Make a Choice.”

“You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.

Matthew 5:13 English Standard Version
