Over the years I have written several "book" or "booklets" and many, many, many newsletter and bulletin articles. Because the book market seeks writings to meet specific needs at specific times, my material has never been accepted. I have a tendency to write what is on my mind and so I am left with self publishing. So, with the encouragement from my wife and others, I am beginning this blog in order to put my "ramblings" "out there"! I hope you enjoy!


Please note that while my intentions are to use good grammar, because of the way in which some of the material presented here is presented (orally) the grammar and syntax might not always be the best English. Also note that good theology is not always presented in the best English so there may be times when the proper grammar rules are purposely broken.

The Cultic Religion of Evolution vs. the Science of Christianity

The online Merriam Webster Dictionary defines the word “cult” as: “1: formal religious veneration: worship, 2: a system of religious beliefs and ritual; also: its body of adherents, 3: a religion regarded as unorthodox or spurious; also: its body of adherents, 4: a system for the cure of disease based on dogma set forth by its promulgator 5.a: great devotion to a person, idea, object, movement, or work (as a film or book); especially: such devotion regarded as a literary or intellectual fad, b: the object of such devotion, c: a usually small group of people characterized by such devotion” (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/cult). Some other negative characteristics of a cult include an unquestioning allegiance to the cult and its leader with repercussions to anyone attempting to leave the cult.

Someone quipped, “I believe in evolution.” Personally, “I believe the Bible.” To believe in something is faith.

The religion of evolution is indeed a religion and even worse, it is a cult. It is not science. Science prides itself on empirical data and proof. But, because there is no proof for evolution, the cult nature of the religion of evolution rears its head and calls all those who question its tenets, heretics. In real science, a theory is posited and then the challenge is to disprove the theory, but not so in the cult of evolution. Interestingly enough, there is no evidence which can prove any of the theories of evolution. And, if you go back and read science and social studies text books you will note that the theory has evolved over time. Even more frightening is the fact that if you look hard enough you can find all the hoaxes and corrections that counter any “findings” that have been presented. And you would think that after some 150 years that some transitional fossil would be found, but such is not the case.

The Christian faith on the other hand has never, never, never had any of its writings proven wrong, not by scientist nor archeologist. As a matter of fact, all archeological findings have only confirmed what is in the Bible, which has not changed over time. And as for the science of the Bible, there have been attempt after attempt to disprove it, but no one can. All the places of Holy Scripture, all the people of Holy Scripture, all of Holy Scripture is true, and on it one can depend.

For all the talk that it takes faith to be a Christian and to believe the Bible, perhaps we might rather say, for one to believe the cultic religion of evolution takes more faith than many people have.
