February 3, 2020 - A Little Common Sense, Please!

Thousands of years ago the prophet Isaiah mocked those who used wood for various mundane purposes, and then made idols out of what was left:


He burns half of it in the fire;

With this half he eats meat;

He roasts a roast, and is satisfied.

He even warms himself and says,

“Ah! I am warm,

I have seen the fire.”

And the rest of it he makes into a god,

His carved image.

He falls down before it and worships it,

Prays to it and says,

“Deliver me, for you are my god!” (Isaiah 44: 16,17).


Silly, yes, but not half as silly as the reigning scientific philosophical presupposition, which declares, under the name of “science,” that design, purpose, and teleology in nature do not exist when design, purpose, and teleology do exist in nature, and obviously so.


Scientist Sean Carrol, who once described humans as “blobs of organized mud”—even he was forced to admit that it is “a bit of a leap, in the face of all of our commonsense experience, to think that life can simply start up out of non-life, or that our experience of consciousness needs no more ingredients than atoms obeying the laws of physics.”


Ya think, Sean?


The created world all put screams out to us about design and purpose. The eye has a purpose, the ear has a purpose, the air has a purpose, the cell wall has a purpose—and yet all these purposes (and billions more), when tallied up come to no purpose at all? It’s like adding up a bunch of positive integers and coming to zero.


A little common sense, please! That, and a bit of faith, can indeed take us a long way—to heaven, in fact.
