the Evolutionist's Library

Did you hear about the evolutionist who, after much study and thought, threw away his entire library of books - Shakespeare, e.e.cummings, Robert Frost, Issac Asimov science fiction, chemistry and biology books - and replaced them all with one book?

He replaced them with a dictionary. After all, books are just collections of words, and a dictionary is the comprehensive collection of words. No need of the extraneous books.

In fact, the dictionary is a special Evolution dictionary - the words are in random order.

When "nature" is all there is, reductionism is the inevitable result of the scientific search for explanations. As Richard Dawkins said, "We're just dancing to our DNA." How's that as an answer for evil?

g or G

Anytime you are talking with someone else or reading articles talking about God, you need to keep your sonar alert for the g or G flip-flop phenomenon. You have to keep asking yourself, "Are they talking about god or God?"

How many times have you read articles penned by an atheist talking about God where you realize he/she is describing the god of the mirror, not God, the Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient, Creator of the Universe?

Below is a rough approximation of an experience of one apologist during a question and answer time.

"Who created God?"

Apologist, "I don't understand your question."

(louder) "I said, who created God?"

Apologist, "I heard you the first time, but I don't understand the question you are asking. It doesn't make any sense."

"I want to know what caused God to come into existence."

Apologist, "Your question still does not make sense. You are asking me who caused the "uncaused cause", God. You are trying to deny the meaning of the concept of God by citing it's definition. Your question does not make sense."

Finally realizing his god view of God, "Oh."
