Creation and Evolution (the final word)

Short and to the point. We don't need any long dissertations like the three or four pages of nonesense that Peter sent me for the last blog on this subject.

Let's reduce everything to basics and not try and impress anyone with flights of convoluted logic!

It's a generally accepted scientific fact that the Universe operates according to certain laws of "nature."

I don't think these "laws" appeared out of thin air, or are supported by "nothing!". There has to be some force, or whatever, that started the ball rolling and keeps some order to things. (Like that old saying: "Time is Natures way of preventing everything from happening at once!")

This "Divine Cause" supports "Intelligent Design," but doesn't necessarily mean anything that has happened since is caused by, or even the result of, Divine Intervention!

As a matter of fact, looking at the world and how it operates I would hazzard a guess that since the original Creation there has been little or no "Divine Intervention" AT ALL!

(Two notes here; First - my big commission cheque came in from work today, just in time for Christmas.
To which my wife said, "Thank the Lord."
I replied,"I don't think the Lord had too much to do with it but you can thank the people in accounting!"
Second - my wifes Lymphoma, on the roof of her mouth, has mysteriously disappeared thanks to healthy living and a lot of prayer from everyone that knows her.
To which I said, "Thank the Lord!!!!!")

God vs. the scientist

God is sitting in Heaven when a scientist says to Him, "Lord, we don't need you anymore. Science has finally figured out a way to create life out of nothing. In other words, we can now do what you did in the 'beginning'."

"Oh, is that so? Tell Me..." replies God

"Well," says the scientist, "we can take dirt and form it into the likeness of you and breathe life into it, thus creating man."

"Well, that's interesting. Show Me."

So the scientist bends down to the earth and starts to mold the soil.

"Oh no, no, no..." interrupts God, "Get your own dirt."
