You Keep Using That Word...

Read this article today.

See, now, here's where the rubber meets the road in worldview. I think the real reason scientists may be "puzzled" is that their basic assumptions are starting off on the wrong foot.

Genesis 1:1
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."

God has spoken to us. He has given us His word so that we may know what He wanted us to know. That is where my worldview starts. How you look at data will ALWAYS be influenced by and filtered through the worldview you hold to be true. Whether you realize it or not.

So, to paraphrase one of my favorite movie characters, "Evolution...you keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

Believing what God said about a universal flood helps explain a lot too!

Absolutely. I thought that exact thing while reading the article when they're wondering how there could be fossils in a lake. "The Flood." Genesis is foundational.
