Why It Matters! The Arrogance of Humanists
The Scientific Revolution that began in the 17th century got its start from humble Reformation Christians trying to understand how God's Creation functioned and how to use it for mankind's benefit. It was because they were seeking truth and starting from the truth of God's Word that they were able to do so much. For centuries theology was called the Queen of the Sciences because it was seen as the central book of Truth. Not until the 19th century and Charles Lyell's invented time scale for geology and Charles Darwin's fiction of evolutionism did the Bible lose its honored place in academia and society.
For about 100 years evolutionists had a free reign in setting the agenda in academia, law and the media. For most of this time nobody seriously questioned what they said. On a purely personal level even though I regularly attended conservative, evangelical churches, I was in my 20's before I ever heard a scientific defense of Creation. In my teens and 20's I would have described myself as a theistic evolutionist because there was no one to tell me the other side of the story. All of this encouraged evolutionists to think that they had reached the summit of human knowledge and that is the definition of arrogance. In the 1960's and 70's as more Christian became more aware of the facts of science, evolutionists simply dismissed challenges to Darwinism as nothing more than annoying pinpricks. From the 1980's to the present as the number of Creation and Intelligent Design scientists exploded the evolutionist response was to use ridicule and condemnation rather than a reasoned response to Darwin challengers. When anyone believes that their beliefs are beyond any challenge arrogance is the inevitable result. Today evolutionists shift between hysterical denunciations or pointedly ignoring challenges to their religion of evolutionism. One thing evolutionists almost never do is actually answer those who show the failures and fallacies of evolutionism. On a recent 60 Minutes segment paleontologists Jack Horner and Mary Schweitzer were discussing their finding flexible blood vessels inside dinosaur fossils. Even though this finding seriously challenges the evolutionary timescale of millions of years, the evolutionary timescale was never questioned. They then went on to state as though it were fact that dinosaurs had evolved into birds, even though there is absolutely no real scientific evidence to support this kind of rampant speculation. The only thing this is proof of is the continued arrogance of evolutionists.
One thing that humanists/evolutionists are excellent at is treating any evolutionist speculation as though it were established scientific fact. Since evolutionists have a stranglehold on both the media and the educational establishment, they know that there is no real threat of ever having to answer the tough questions that all true scientists expect as part of the scientific method. Evolutionists have to regularly revise their stories when confronted with the harsh reality of nature. But not to worry, evolutionists will just invent another story to takes its place and so it goes on and on, storytelling taking the place of real science.
