Dawkins is Still Delusional
Once again, outspoken atheist and God hater, Richard Dawkins has decided to condemn retired pediatric neurosurgeon and presidential candidate, Dr. Ben Carson for his creationist beliefs. The news story carried the following headline,
Richard Dawkins tears into Ben Carson: His belief in creationism is a ‘deeply depressing disgrace.’
Dr. Dawkins was evidently appalled that someone with an above average IQ might reject the Theory of Evolution and embrace the biblical account of creation.
What is clear from the outset is that Dr. Dawkins remains woefully ignorant concerning the philosophical implications of his entirely naturalistic worldview. What Dr. Dawkins does not want to tell you is that there are many scientists who believed that God created the universe. Three of them from varying scientific disciplines are listed here.
Chemist and microbiologist. He is remembered for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and preventions of diseases.
The more I study nature, the more I am amazed at the Creator.
Physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist, and theologian, has been “considered by many to be the greatest and most influential scientist who ever lived,”
The most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being.
A Heavenly Master governs all the world as Sovereign of the universe. We are astonished at Him by reason of His perfection; we honor Him and fall down before Him because of His unlimited power. From blind physical necessity, which is always and everywhere the same, no variety adhering to time and place could evolve, and all variety of created objects which represent order and life in the universe could happen only by the willful reasoning of its original Creator, Whom I call the Lord God. Principia
We are therefore to acknowledge one God, infinite, eternal, omnipresent, omniscient, omnipotent, the Creator of all things, most wise, most just, most good, most holy. "A Short Scheme on the True Religion"
Nobel Prize for Physics
Religion and science demand for their foundation faith in God. For the former (religion), God stands foremost; for the latter (science), at the end of all thought. For religion He represents a basis; for science, a crowning solution towards a worldview.
When it comes to faith in the Theory of Evolution, there are so many voices, past and present, that stand in opposition to the validity of Darwin’s Theory. It amuses me that Dr. Dawkin’s spews his arrogant tirades against a Deity that he himself claims does not exist.
Consider the following excerpt from the works of C.S. Lewis regarding the foolishness of using naturalism as a source of ultimate truth. If Lewis were here, he might ask Richard Dawkins how they can be certain that their own reasoning can be trusted to ascertain what is really true and what is not. If human beings are merely the consequences of irrational material processes, there is no reason to believe that we can somehow become the fount of all wisdom, the final arbiters of what is factual and what is not.
And finally, again from the pen of C.S. Lewis we have the following presentation of the Person of Jesus of Nazareth.
A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic – on a level with the man who says he is a poached egg – or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God; or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.--C.S. Lewis
