While the Devil uses his resources to confuse, God can use even a stolen book to bring clarity, as He did with this young woman.
Some history worth remembering: 20 years ago plans were in place to make the world’s most popular English Bible translation more gender-neutral. Even after being shamed into reversing course, the publisher tried again just two years later.
William A. Dembski’s certainty that we have been designed, and not evolved, led him to predict 20 years ago that so-called “Junk DNA” would turn out to be functional. His position opposed that of evolutionists who assumed these sections were the useless leftover remnants of our species’ previous evolutionary incarnations. Over the next ten years, Dembski’s design inference was proven to be the right one, as these sections did prove to have functions.
Now Dembski has a new prediction, also based on us being designed rather than evolved. A new discovery – CRISPR gene editing – allows us to edit mankind’s genes. This raises the possibility of correcting some people’s defective genes – errors that are obviously errors and lead to certain genetic diseases. But evolutionists see this as an opportunity to improve on where, in their minds, chance and time have brought us. Could gene-editing be used to make the human species smarter, faster, stronger, etc.? Dembski predicts, no, because no matter how smart scientists might be, they aren’t anywhere near as smart as our Designer. And while this CRISPR process might have some use in addressing the breakage in that design, as caused by the Fall, Man is not going to be able to improve on God’s design.
“The question is not if my kids will see pornography, but what will I do when it happens.”
Rex Murphy lays it out.
Our young people can’t all go to this college, but we can encourage all those that do head off to university to approach their education with this sort of rigor.
