my ranting about genome:

Chemicals, cells, and organisms are all described as having intentional behavior.  All would agree that a molecule cannot hold ‘purpose’ and yet the ‘purpose’ of molecules is spoken of.  We speak of order and the way something is designed.  And yet, we assume that there was no designer.  Then why the order.  Why is positive attracted to negative. Why are there rules to chemistry…physics…  The order, the design, the purpose.  They are used metaphorically of course, but only because there is really no other explanation.  Microorganisms, cells, and chemicals have no will of their own, and yet they are described with active verbs all the time.  Because they seem to act.  And yet, in ‘reality,’ reactions are simply happening…simply following an order written down by the mindless universe.  Atoms do not ‘share’ electrons…the electrons are simply shared.  It must be passive because the atoms do not have the capability to act.  Nor do chemicals react with one another…a reaction simply occurs.  It seems impossible to avoid, and yet, it does seem to be the most scientifically correct way to describe things aside from intelligent design.  I can never recall a conversation about evolution that did not use terms of purpose, will, or design.  Organisms are always ‘trying’ to improve.  The are ‘realizing’ what they lack.  They are ‘preparing’ for future needs.  As if a thoughtless cell has a mind that is so developed beyond our own that it can predict the future.  Believe in evolution if you will, but even evolution cannot occur without design. There is a God.

For God is not a God of disorder but of peace

    Evolution really confuses me. It looks really good on the surface, but you look deeper and there are tons of holes. Even evolutionists agree with this. So why is it still alive and well as a theory? I see no other reason than that they are denying God. It’s basically a simple denial of God, it’s the only remotely feasable theory to exist without a God, but even then evolutionists cannot explain the REASON we even have a universe. I’m not sure what your belief is about the origin of the universe, so please don’t be offended (I’d like to think you believe in Evolution) but I’m wondering why many Christians are now coming to believe evolution as scientific fact. Sure, it’s not essential to salvation or whatever, but why are we placing more faith in science than the Bible? Evolution isn’t in conflict in the Bible, I’m not God, I don’t know, but I would have some strong arguments that Evolution is not only scientifically unsupported but in conflict with the Bible.”The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. “-Romans 1:19-22Sorry this got so long – I get fired up about stuff like this.

    wow, I read back and had some serious writing errors: I repeated “it’s a denial of God” twice, “I’d like to think you believe in Evolution” should “I’d like to think you DON’T believe in Evolution.” and “Evolution isn’t in conflict with the Bible” should be “Evolution MAY NOT be in conflict with the Bible.”

    hey esther, yea I know who you are. ( :hehe, this is were I put in my opinion, this is the reason that I got a xanga. mwahahahahha!Its simple:first: Evolution’s God is time; anything can happen just give it billions of years.second: the Bible AND science do not allow for the earth to be billions of years old.conclusion: Evolution never happened.(mwahahahahahha)? what is an eProp? I don’t get this xanga stuff.
