Life: Intelligent Design or Freak of Nature?
By: David Deschesne
Fort Fairfield Journal, May 11, 2006, p. 11
Since the public school
system has been banned from teaching the concept of a Divine Architect who
designed the entire universe, generations of school children have grown up only
hearing one theory as to its origin. That
theory is Darwinism.
can show successfully that there is evolution within species due to natural selection. However,
without any proof, they then extrapolate that out to all creatures, plant life,
etc. had its origin from just one cell.
This original cell,
Darwinists theorize was created by accident - a “freak of nature” in some
vast primordial soup at the early stages of our earth’s development.
That one type of cell, they continue, then developed into fish, which
then developed into lizards and snakes, then monkeys and ultimately, through
evolution, turned into humans.
In only supporting the
“freak of nature” concept of the origins of life, Darwinists do not
acknowledge a Grand Designer, for to do so would require them to believe in a
power greater than man - something their secular humanist belief system can not
bear. For if there is a power
greater than man, man can’t be God - a thought that is an anathema to most in
upper levels of government today.
Something from Nothing
Suppose you were lost in
an unknown portion of the Northern Maine woods and haven’t seen any sign of
roads or human life for days. Just
when you think you are the first person to have ever been in that section of
woods, you glance at the ground and see, among the sticks and twigs, a
completely finished printed circuit board.
Without any religious
belief system at all, you would be forced to conclude two things:
was here before; and
circuit board didn’t just create itself from nothing, it had to have somebody
or something with intelligence design and build it.
We all know circuit
boards are designed by electrical engineers and manufactured to spec in
factories for given purposes. We
don’t have to see the electrical engineer, the factory, or watch the circuit
board being built to know that there was at one point a designer, and somebody
To look at
something as complex as the human body, with its electrical synapses, heart
rhythms, brain waves and chemical reactions it is hard to think of us as simply
evolving accidentally without someone/thing of superior intellect to design us.
For example, the Ph level (acid/alkaline balance) of our bodies must be
maintained around 7.44+/-. Moving
slightly outside of that range by a few tenths either way, can mean the
difference between life or death. Hundreds
of things have to go correctly in our bodies literally from one second to the
next, or this fragile concept we call “life” ends very abruptly.
Without an architect to come up with and implement the design, life
simply couldn’t exist, let alone begin, on its own.
Darwinists and those who
espouse the creation of life by mere chance, treat their ideas with such
reverence, that it has developed into a de
They believe in no Grand Designer as vehemently as those who acknowledge
the Lord God believe in Him.
By granting an inordinate
amount of time and energy to an unproven theory-turned-religion, public schools,
by trying to keep all religion out, have paradoxically opened their doors to it.
This religion, however, is socially acceptable, since it places man at
the center, with no Supreme Authority. This
religion does have a name, but isn’t uttered in those hallowed halls all that
much; that name is Humanism.
The “Big Bang”
Another theory wildly
touted as fact by those elite in academia is the “Big Bang Theory.”
researcher, Ernest L. Norman rebuts the Big Bang Theory by stating,
“[the scientist theorizes] somewhere at some time, a huge ball of atoms
collected together and when there were enough of them and they were compressed
tightly enough, they suddenly exploded. The
little pieces traveling outward formed the countless trillions of star suns of
Now, they have not yet
explained why these little pieces, in traveling out, assumed that pinwheel
fashion, or the rotating formation with which we are familiar from astronomical
photographs. Logically, from an
explosion, such objects would be propelled straight out from the center.
Also not explained: why the universe is thicker at the center and tapers
out to a thin edge. An explosion
should hurl bits and pieces in all directions, up and down as well as sideways
(360 degrees). Also not explained:
why countless galaxies have formed in this universe, each one rotating
pin-wheel-like, the same as the universe, and which again invalidates the “Big
Bang” theory.” - Tempus

violates known laws of Thermodynamics, specifically The Second Law of
Thermodynamics, which is Entropy:
All matter and
energy in an enclosed system always tends to a greater state of disorder.
Translated: Everything rots.
Steel rusts, wood rots, paint peels, etc.
without the application of more energy from a source with some intellect
to guide it. Indeed, to have
an ordered, functioning universe occur, with the vast repository of complex
life-forms we see here on earth, as a result of an explosion, would be analogous
to setting a bomb off in the middle of a junk yard and have all the scrap metal
land back on the ground forming a fully built and functioning Boeing 747
airplane, all by itself!
It is indeed easier to
acknowledge a Divine Creator who has designed and controls the entire universe
and all life in it, than it is to believe life, matter and all of its
complexities exists purely by chance alone.
