VESTIGIAL

VESTIGIAL - It is not always easy to stay balanced in life.  For the individual, company, country and even for the human race as a whole there are forces and changes tugging us in various directions.

For well over 1,000 years (from Ptolemy, a Greek mathematician, of about 200 A.D.) scientists believed that the rest of the universe revolved around the Earth.  This belief did not come from the Bible, but from Greek science.  And though incorrect it had ripple effects through the rest of educated Westerners.  "The scientists must be right" in such matters, of course.  Over time even Christian priests tagged along believing that the scientific consensus had settled the matter.  But Copernicus and then Galileo came along - and upset the conventional wisdom.

Galileo vs. the leaders of his day is not an example of "religion vs. science" but rather is an example of scientists being wrong for about 1,200 years.  Their educated peers, later being the church-state leaders of the Middle Ages, sided against the upstart Galileo for his standing against what was "already long since known" and settled.  But the ripple effects of educated people long believing such an inaccurate scientific theory had subsequently impacted European theology, philosophy, and many other disciplines.

Early in the 20th Century so-called "vestigial organs" were used to help bolster belief in evolutionary theory during the "Scopes (Monkey) Trial" of 1925.  There were 180 organs in the human body that the experts of the day said were not used.  (And before you read the rest of the story, keep in mind that many of today's experts claim that 98% of human DNA is "junk DNA" left over from "evolution", only about 2% is actually used, they claim.)  In any event, the leftover "vestigial organs" argument was a pivotal argument in the 1920's.  If there were some 180 unused organs, evolution must have placed them there - confirmation of random chance over design.  But evolutionists are mute on this topic today.  Over the decades they've slowly learned that every single one of the 180 organs and glands has a distinct purpose!

Evolution has always been believed more due to the unacceptability of the alternative than due to any scientific evidence supporting it.  However the belief by the consensus of scientists that there just must be some evidence out there somewhere supporting evolutionary beliefs, out there somewhere, somehow out there ... it has to be there (otherwise it is logical to repent before our Creator - and that would be horrible, so keep looking!) ... has subsequent ripple effects in theology, philosophy, and many other disciplines.  Maybe we should trust the scientists?  Surely they must be right when there is a disagreement between a temporary scientific theory over the clear reading of what the Bible says on a matter?

Is the human race as a whole "balanced"?  Are there some forces that may be tugging us in unhealthy directions?  Is it possible that sometimes only the minority of scientists may be right on a matter?  (Like when Galileo disagreed with the majority of scientists of his day.)  Is it possible (theoretically speaking) that the Bible's record of our past may be right?  The loud voices of a majority ... are sometimes wrong.  As a Divine revelaton of our origins the Genesis record is the only "creation" account still standing.  And after evolution is eventually dismissed - Genesis will continue to stand on its own merits and on the side of the scientific evidence, as it does today.  The scientific consensus may become wrong now and again, but there is a particular record of our past and the universe around us that, though without many details on some things (only 11 chapters to catalog the first 1700 years of human history) stands as a true account nonetheless. 

The debate over our origins is a wide ranging one.  Many scientific and religious evidences are brought forward and publications abound that support one side or the other ... (or all 3 sides, if we include the "aliens" hypothesis).   Has "God" (or gods) given us a "Divine Revelation" that will eventually prove to be true?  Are "the scientists" always right?  -Well, don't ask me; I'm just a creationist ... not an "objective" evolutionist.   :-)      (text by P.A.)
