It is becoming the more predominant world view who call themselves BELIEVERS IN CHRIST. Only they are trying to have it BOTH ways; saying that God ‘created’ but that He did it through evolution.
Either way you look at it, the result is the same. SELF-PROGRESSION. No guiding hand. Yet, humanity has ALLEGEDLY gone, from a single-celled emiba to monkeys, to the Flintstone’s, to where we are NOW!
Question to be asked IS….Where ARE we NOW?!?! I mean, okay, we’re not swinging from trees anymore, (assuming we ever did….I couldn’t do the monkey bars thing in grade school) and we’ve stopped using porcupines as floor scrubbing brushes, a la Wilma Flintstone. But have things REALLY gotten any better? Technologically, there can be no doubt! In a mere ten years, cell phones, which were gaining a hold, have exploded onto the scene! Where they used to only make phone calls, ten years later, we have cameras and audio recording capabilities. Today, we have Blackberries and ‘Slates’. By the time the contract on my cell phone expires, who knows what will be possible? That’s all well and good. What we can do, with technology and ‘machinery’ is mind-boggling! Morally, however, we are in the TOILET and someone’s about to flush!
All you have to do is look around. Check the paper. Listen to or watch the news. If human society is SUPPOSED to be ADVANCING, according to the evolutionary hypothesis, we’re not doing a great job! Murders, terrorism, financial unrest the world over. What’s the deal?! Shouldn’t we be at or, at the very least NEAR some point of completion? Considering that homosapiens have been on this planet for a billion or so years, one would assume that substantial progress would have come by this point. WHAT AM I MISSING?! Is there a place of finality, where humanity will reach that Shangra-la? Our self-made Utopia; free from all the aggravation we’ve thrown off, in our progressive climb upward? Where IS it and What will we have to do in order to, at last, reach that place of peace? Because I have to tell ya, I’m not seeing it! Socio-political commentators like Bill Maher are great proponents of the evolutionist position that humanity is ‘Movin’ on UP”, to quote a 70’s sitcom theme. And, for the sake of discussion….believing Mr. Maher to be telling the truth, I still have to wonder how much further humanity has to go, before we reach the pinnacle of our upward climb. IS there a pinnacle or do we just keep climbing? And how much further before we actually start seeing some improvement in our over-all condition? Because, if our current situation is any indication of the direction we’re heading, We’re going the WRONG WAY!
