The only way for anyone to go beyond his or her own observations is by some form of revelation. Members of the Secular Humanist religion believe in a process of miraculous revelation that they call rationalism but which is in fact rationalized fanaticizing. Some people believe in revelation by God. Others believe in revelation by spirits. Without the Secular belief in rationalized fanaticizing there could be no molecules-to-man evolution conjecture / fabrication. Evolution isn't science. There are many questions that evolutionists must answer to even show that molecules-to-man evolution could even be possible, let alone that it happened. Just take the "15 Questions for Evolutionists" and see how they have been unable to answer those--it makes them hopping mad, too.
Some things can be proved by deductive logic and observation alone. That is why we are able to manufacture products with a fairly high degree of consistency. That is why we bother to try to figure out what went wrong when an accident has taken place. By deductive logic and observation alone, we can know that God created the universe, and we can know quite a bit about God, too. By deductive logic and observation alone, we can know that the creation of what we see around us by the process of evolution would be a scientific impossibility. Evolution isn't science.
So, although there is much that we can observe using empirical science, there are three ways of interpreting what we can know from empirical science:
Some people believe in human-based revelation,
Some people believe in demon-based revelation,
Some people believe in God-based revelation.
Those who believe in human-based revelation take what we can observe and interpret it using the human intellect and emotion. That is, the human intellect and emotion adds to or subtracts from what is observed based on rational-lie-zed fantasy that has been crystallized into a complete pseudo-reality in the mind. The human mind is believed to have synthesized information from nothing other than its ability to get these revelations. This is the concept of the intellectual and of speculative rationalism, most solidly associated with the Humanist religion, but also crossing all denominational boundaries of all religions, including Christianity.
Those who believe in demon-based revelation perform interpretation using various spirits. This is the occult experience, including sances, ouija boards, tarot cards, fortune tellers, witches, new age techniques, etc. These are revelations given by demons, referred to as the many "gods," spirit beings, spirit guides, and many other names.
Those who believe in God-based revelation perform the interpretation by asking God to show them the answer to the problem. It is a different form of reason than just making up answers as the human-based revelation system uses. And it is different from seeking the advice of demons. Those who believe in Human-based revelation are not very tolerant of those who believe in God-based revelation. When a Christian President says that he prays for wisdom and guidance, the news commentators are all worried about it. They want everyone to depend on the intellect. They want everyone to lean on his or her own understanding. They don't want people to acknowledge God or to allow God to direct their paths. Proverbs 3:5 & 6
There is no evidence anywhere that rational-lie-zed speculation is a valid form of reasoning, though. Even though speculative rationalism has been repeatedly shown to be a false form of reasoning, it is accepted in almost all areas of life today. In fact, it is accepted to such an extent that some dictionaries equate the word, rational, with sane. There is some validity in this definition since two rationalizing people who have differing assumptions are likely to think of each other as being insane. The famous comedy routine, "Who's on first." is funny only because Abbot and Costello are each operating on differing sets of assumptions. Each of them continues living in his own speculatively rationalized paradigm. That's how rational-lie-zed speculation operates. It creates a complete representation of the creation around us with all the senses and emotions, a complete world in our heads. It fills in the blanks with fabrications without us even being aware that all of this is happening. Most of our rational-lie-zed speculations are subconscious. And it is part of the human weakness. Theologians, politicians, and evolutionists seem to just love and defend even conscious rational-lie-zed speculations.
The Bible says: But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1 Corinthians 2:14 Rational-lie-zed speculations ruin observation. It is possible to go beyond pure observation, but rational-lie-zed speculation isn't the way. Revelation from God is the only way to go beyond basic observation. The reality is that the human mind is so hampered by rational-lie-zed speculation that it seems to be impossible to even observe the facts as they are without filtering out some of them or enhancing others of them.
Now, the evolutionist will say that it is silly to quote the Bible as an authority. Yet, no one has ever found any error in the Bible, though millions of dollars of Government money have been spent trying to find an error. Evolutionists want to make the rules. They want to declare that the Bible cannot be used as a resource. God says, "The Scripture cannot be broken." John 10:35 And He has backed that up and shown the atheists and agnostics to be fools every time.
rational-lie-zed speculation, often disguised as other forms of reasoning to give itself credibility, is the foundation of some terribly evil things. It was the source of the violence of the inquisition. It was and is the basis of the socialism that resulted in so many deaths in Hitler's Germany, Italy, China, North Korea, U. S. S. R., Cuba and Iraq. It is the source of the divisions that have caused all the denominations in the Church. When you see violence or division, you can bet that there is logic behind it that has one or more rational-lie-zed speculations as a starting point. When you see hate, rational-lie-zed speculation is doing its work.
Rational-lie-zed speculation is the real basis for teaching the molecules-to-man evolution conjecture / fabrication. Evolutionists will almost always insist that the basis of evolution is observation and deductive logic, but they can never show any proof based on observation and deductive logic alone. In reality, their evidence is always based on rational-lie-zed speculation with enough references to observation and mathematics to confuse even very intelligent people. And, the evolutionists are probably even confusing themselves with their rationalized, inductive logic. There is no real proof of evolution. In fact, based on observation and deductive logic, evolution is a scientific impossibility.
Most evolutionists find that, since there is no proof of evolution, they need to use leveraged logic to argue for evolution. They find clever ways to create the illusion of proof. They almost always start with those things that have been observed, then they leverage that information using creative stories.
Evolutionists are ever so careful not to let people know that their creative stories are simply fabrications. Then, they use scientific terms to hide the fact that they are just making it up as they go along. Evolutionists find that others have already made up some really great stories for them. They can find these stories anywhere people have written books on evolution and just parrot the concoctions of others, thus creating the illusion of intelligence. You'll be surprised at how many people will be spellbound by these stories if an evolutionist can just keep a straight face while expounding the fabrications.
Evolutionists don't want you to find out about their rational-lie-zed speculations.. Well, they probably don't even really know about their own rational-lie-zed speculations since a dedicated evolutionist is usually closed-minded to anything that challenges the evolutionary dogma. Of course, these rational-lie-zed speculations are assumptions, and evolutionists may not even be aware of their own assumptions. The assumptions of the evolutionists were largely implanted in them carefully by their teachers back when they were in school. The teachers didn't say, "Assume this, and assume that." They presupposed the assumptions into the things that the evolutionists learned so that the evolutionists wouldn't even be aware of them. The fact is that most of us have had teachers who did this to us as well. A sentence that starts, "Millions of years ago..." assumes that the earth is millions of years old and that it has been millions of years since dinosaurs freely roamed the earth. Presupposition is one of many hypnotic techniques in the new age technique known as neurolinguistic programming, and it is a technique that is freely used in schools and all types of media.
So it's not that the evolutionists are stupid. Many of them are very intelligent. They are just willingly ignorant of the facts. Of course, this is nothing new.
"For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:" 2 Peter 3:5-6
"Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it to them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever." Romans 1:19
It's a matter of wisdom, not intelligence: "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God." Psalm 53:1
You can tell that they are willingly ignorant, because they hear and see things that show evolutionism to be a silly belief and yet continue blindly on. They are dogmatic despite having no proof. They desire to convert you to their same misery. They accept almost anything as proof of evolution without question. They are willingly ignorant. They are in denial.
An evolutionist is very careful to make sure that no one knows about his or her assumptions. Once an evolutionist admits that his or her beliefs are based on assumptions, who is going to listen to that evolutionist? If you ever start to get close to making an evolutionist admit that he or she is basing everything on assumptions, you will see that evolutionist start to get upset. You will see that evolutionist use every trick in the book so they don't have to admit that they are just making it all up.
One trick is to use the term, "the axioms of science," when referring to the assumptions that are the basis of evolution. Lots of people will fall for that one. The evolutionists tell you that these unfounded assumptions are the axioms of science that are accepted by all "real" scientists. They will even state the assumptions in a way that makes them almost sound real, though they are not real. They are still just assumptions--made up stories. The fact is that these assumptions are the axioms of the Secular Humanist religion, which is the de facto state established religion of the United States, Canada, and all of Europe. The fact is that these axioms are simply rational-lie-zed speculations. They are fabrications, lies.
In order to be a truly great defender of evolutionism, a person would need to know both the strengths and the weaknesses of the evolutionary hypothesis. This "master evolutionist," defender of the evolutionistic creed, would need to know how to dodge those problem areas concerning evolutionism that cannot be answered. If an evolutionist doesn't know about the weaknesses of the hypothesis, he or she would soon be exposed as a fool when a creation scientist just asks a few simple questions or presents a few simple facts. In general, they are exposed anyway, which is why evolutionists will seldom debate creation scientists in an open forum. Evolutionists must learn to duck and weave, duck and weave, and most of them are good at it.
Here are the most important rules for anyone who wants to be an evolutionist. If a person chooses to become an evolutionist, he or she should do the following:
Get off of this web site, because it will challenge your thinking. Keep a closed mind to the idea that God exists and that He is creator of the universe. Keep a closed mind to the idea of a world-wide flood. Get loud and abusive or else leave the area if anyone expresses belief in creation. Intimidate through techniques such as name-calling. Imply that anyone who disagrees with you is either stupid or ignorant.
An evolutionist would consider it a trap to try to give real proof of evolution. Since neither they nor anyone else has ever seen any actual proof, they just don't go there. Evolutionists stick to creating the illusion of proof.
One method that evolutionists use is to simply speak of evolution as if it were a fact. This is a form of presupposition. You'll hear this technique used on any college campus, high school classroom, grade school classroom, TV show, movie or news program. The evolutionists have established themselves to make sure that their message is the message that is told. They haven't yet been able to completely silence every other voice, but that is not because they haven't tried.
There are many slogans used by evolutionists to express their rational-lie-zed speculations. These slogans are the most important tools of the evolutionist. They are the tools for selling America's secret, State-supported religion.
One good side benefit of the fantastic and unbelievable battle to try to find evidence for evolution is that the effort to prove the theory has helped to make it very clear that evolution, as it is taught in the schools, makes no sense at all. And the tremendous effort has kept many individuals off the street by employing them as evolutionists. Every year, the government has poured millions and millions of dollars of "free" government money into employing these evolutionists. Even if the economy goes down the tubes because of government spending, and even if the deficit shoots right through the roof, it's still worth it to the promoters of worldly liberalism to employ these evolutionists. No benefit has ever been derived from the study of the hypothesis of evolution other than the proving of the fact that the whole creation speaks of its creator.
After all their valiant efforts, scientists finally have enough information to realize that evolution is a scientific impossibility. Every new piece of information makes matters worse for the followers of the Secular Humanist religion. They are forced to be knowingly ignorant of the creation or else to accept the account of the Bible and ask God for forgiveness. If they do that, they can't adhere to the Secular Humanistic dogma any longer. So you see their dilemma.
Evolutionism is an impossible premise, since there is no way it could have happened given what we have been able to observe. As a result of this, pseudo-scientists thought and thought and thought. These pseudo-scientists finally thought up a brand new rational-lie-zed speculation. They thought up Post-Modernism.
Anyone who wants to be an evolutionist must now be a post-modernist as well. Post-modernism states that there simply is no truth at all, and that everything is in total confusion, chaos. Observation really means nothing. Under post-modernism, life is more exciting, because every day is anything-can-happen day. Since there is no truth and we can't know anything under post-modernism, the person who can holler the loudest gets to say what the truth is. And with the pushers of worldly liberalism having almost total control of the media, the courts, and the schools, they get to holler the loudest. All a person needs to do is to just pretend that there really is no truth and they can be an evolutionist.
Under post-modernism, truth makes no difference. There are no lies, just winners and losers. And, since there are no real ethics or morals, you can do whatever you want to win. An evolutionist can do or say whatever it takes to "prove" evolutionism. They can tell any lie to get you to believe it. They can put it on the news program as if it were news. They can put it into a movie as if it were entertainment. They can put it into the classroom as if it had any value. There are no limits on an evolutionist, since there is no right and there is no wrong in their view of life.
Here's an interesting quote that lets you know what to expect:
"I am convinced that the battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith: a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being. These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless of the educational level preschool day care or large state university." The Humanist, January/February 1983, "A Religion for a New Age."
