We live in a strange world. It is supposed to be the age of science, technology and development. Yet there is an area where we live in the age of Adam – God’s truths in the Bible are still being questioned. The devil asked Eve one simple question in the Garden of Eden, 1 ‘Did God really say…?’ And after all this time, the same question still sows doubt in people’s minds. For example, ‘Did God really create life on earth?’
Not so according to some very learned professors. Dr J Wells reports in Evolution News and Views (Politics Professors: How to Reduce evolution Denial, March 9, 2015) about two professors from Penn State University. Professors Michael Berkman and Eric Pulitzer want to increase awareness of evolution as an essential aspect of biology. They target future science teachers.
The report was in the March 6 edition of Science. It includes a photo of the high school biology textbook by the educated and prominent biologists, Dr Kenneth Miller and Dr Joseph Levine. 2 The elephant on the cover of the textbook gave it the nickname ‘elephant cover’ book. Among the outdated and disproven evidences for Darwinian evolution that the book still uses are the Miller-Urey experiment, Haeckel’s embryo’s and the peppered moths. All three of them have been proved completely wrong, erroneous and misleading.
The question is why do they want to make sure students accept it? Evolution is not operational science which leads to technological advances. Evolution has never led to any innovation that helped society. So why the emphasis on evolution?
The function of evolution has only one goal: to do what the people who attempted to build the tower of Babel did. 3 They wanted to exclude God from society. Supposedly Darwin accomplished building such a tower that God is effectively banished from public life. The same thing happens today. As tower builders, the professors reckon they are doing society a great favour. The only problem is that the professors present outdated, wrong and false information in their ‘noble’ effort. That smacks of the work of the great deceiver, the devil.
It is fascinating. Why do people go to so much trouble to prove that the Bible is wrong? It is because the Creator promised a new heaven and earth for His people. There is one who will never be part of God’s Kingdom. He is Satan, the devil, the liar. He still influences people today to lie so that others will also miss the new heavens and earth.
The professors are another proof that the eternal Kingdom of God is a reality, and that God has an enemy who is very active in 2015. In addition the tower of Babel that people regard as an outdated ‘myth,’ is very, very real in our time.
