1. In the Evolution/Creation debate most
#Evolution-believers are close-minded to #Creationism/#ID, but many Creationists came from their side
2. Most Evolution believers today hold completely unexamined and unfounded assumptions about the nature of ultimate reality, humanity and God.
3. Darwin’s theory wasn’t a conclusion based on research. Rather, his prior rejection of God & Theistic Science drove his theorizing & research.
4. How irrational
#Atheists act: A: “Show me evidence.” We give evidence & arguments. A ignore & say: “There’s no evidence. Show me evidence.”
5. #Evolution believer: Why do you assume only the material world exists, that we’re reducible to brain chemistry, and that no Creator exists?
6. #Evolution believer: You must resist the tendency to assume you have the truth & start questioning it. To insist you don’t need to is Denial
#Evolutionists deny but can’t refute how irreducible complexity/the decay of the human genome/the existence of minds undermine their beliefs
8. Evolution fail: We have brain chemistry but can’t be reduced to this. The “matter-only” view of the Cosmos fails. (http://wp.me/p3YamW-1j )
9. Only Mind/Body Dualism explains 2-way causality betw brain-chemistry & consciousness + a single entity can’t be both its own cause & effect.
#Evolution-believer: To say that consciousness is only brain-chemistry looking at itself is nonsense which only explains away consciousness.
11. All education is “faith-based”. Secular public ed. is based on faith that the Creator God doesn’t exist. But this is impossible to know.
12. If The Biblical #God exists (& we say He must), He must be The 1st Priority of all #education. To refuse to start with God is to reject Him
13. Every human being in history has actually known that The Creator God exists. But man is also naturally inclined to rebel against our Maker.
14. #God calls all to give up resistance to Him, Admit your sin & need for Him, Believe He sent His Son to forgive & His Spirit to transform you
15. The Trinity (hinted at in the OT & deduced from the NT) means God is relationally both Subject & Object (not physically).
16. God’s plurality of Being makes Him self-sufficient as a relational Person, without the need to create something to relate to.
17. The Trinity means God is One & Many, equally-ultimate Subject & Object and a relational Being (incl cause & effect relation).
18. Christian Theism is The Answer to all of the major riddles of Philosophy, thereby serving as the only basis for all knowledge
19. Despite the dogmatic Modern/Post-Modern bias, the Bible is both God’s “Get to know Me Manual” & the Foundation for all Truth.
20. Material (created) entities can only be objects, not subjects. But we, as incarnated spiritual beings in God’s image are both
21. Having made us as incarnated spiritual beings, God Himself became one (in the Person of The Son) to lead us to Perfection.
