God vs. Nothing, part I

It must irk postmoderns to no end that they can’t stamp out creationism. Just guessing, but I’d bet a beer that belief in creation by the Almighty Hand of God is every bit as high as it was during the Scopes Trial, the media circus that occurred in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and twenty-five. Read more.

What’s more, I think postmoderns are genuinely afraid. The hubbub in Kansas has brought to light an interesting trend. Creationist Christians have argued that evolution and creation should be taught side by side. Evolutionists have argued that creationism has no place in a state-funded classroom. They'd don't even want a debate.

You’d think they’d be chomping at the bit to get at creationism, huh? To take it apart piece by piece in the marketplace of ideas and, in the process, inculcate tons of impressionable Kansan youngsters? After all, they’re the intellectuals and we’re the superstitious rubes. Right? Then it hits you. They can’t. Scientists, atheists, agnostics, et. al. have never been able to extinguish faith in God. Not during their vaunted “Enlightenment” and not now. Quote!

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. Psalm 19:1

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.Romans 1:18-22
