The Revolution Begins
A radical ring of scientists ditch all those dusty ideas about dinosaur evolution.
So reads the title of a review of an exhibit called Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. The article states that dinosaur science is in the midst of an extreme makeover and that the ideas presented at the exhibit are overturning entrenched ideas about some of the most famous and best-studied creatures in Earth’s history, giving the lost world a whole new look.
This “extreme makeover” is nothing new with regard to the study of dinosaurs. Every few years a headline announces that “everything we thought we knew about dinosaurs is wrong”, an actual headline on a magazine a few years ago. That paleontologists regularly change their stories about dinosaurs is actually an example of good science, all science is tentative and should be regularly reexamined. In only display even the “fact” of dinosaur extinction being caused by an asteroid hitting the Earth is challenged. The problem is that with each remaking of the story, the scientists involved proclaim that now they are absolutely certain that they know what really happened, until the next time.
It is the arrogance of the scientists making these pronouncements that is one of the greatest enemies of the search for truth, which is what true science is all about. Evolutionists regularly use the cover of science to make the same kind of arrogant pronouncements that now they have the “proof” that evolution is true, until their “proof” is exposed for the fraud that it is and then more “proof” is invented. It is because science and scientists still have the image of impartiality with so much of the public that their arrogance is both so effective and so damaging to the search for truth.
It is critical for Christians to But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: 1Peter 3:15. God wants us to be salt and light to the world, to proclaim His truth to all who will listen. Proverbs 1:7 tells us that The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Evolutionists in their arrogance have rejected wisdom to be Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 2Timothy 3:7.
God has given us not just the Truth, Jesus Christ, but also the truth of His Creation. That truth is not the shifting sands of clever fables, but the truth of the One who is the Creator of the Heaven and Earth. We need to be knowledgeable enough of the evidence God has given us to be effective witnesses in a world separated from God.
