A pair of scientific reports released in recent weeks are related to life on Earth: One raises the possibility that the planet was jump-started by a comet, and the other calculates that Earth will end in 1.75 billion to 3.25 billion years.
Q: How do these reports fit in with your teachings or beliefs?
There’s a joke about some scientists who tell God that he’s no longer needed because they believe they have the knowledge to make a man just as God reportedly did in the Bible. God accepts the challenge, but rules that they must use the same ingredient he did “in the beginning.” They all agree, then they squat down to scoop up some dirt, and God says, “Nope, get your own!” Really, even amino acids have origins, as did the comets that scientists suppose brought them.
I tire of hearing fanciful origin explanations by pagan scientists who discount God and make leaps of faith to comets, aliens or life which just popped out of nowhere by chance and grew to the complexities we experience today without any design or intelligence but somehow “knew” to evolve upward rather than sitting there and amounting to nothing.
