|How does human weakness keep scientists from understanding?|
Science and Logic are Limited Tools
It is illogical to apply logic past its own limits and then claim that the results make sense. It is unscientific to apply science past its own limits and then claim that the results are valid.
Human weakness keeps scientists and theologians from understanding because human minds are sadly lacking in the ability to perceive. The invention of instruments, such as the microscope and telescope, have helped a little, but there is much that we don't have the physical ability to observe. On the other hand, even those things that would be possible to physically observe are added to and subtracted from by natural thinking processes that are present in all human minds and that keep us all from observing the world as it really is. Confirmation bias takes its toll. If this were not true, the hypothesis of evolution would never have been considered by anyone.
Evolutionists will often state that they do not believe in revelation. For instance, they will say that the Bible is simply a book written by men. They will say that their belief is based purely on logic and objective observation. They probably say that because they have not given much thought to how they come to their beliefs. They don't understand the weakness of naturalistic claims.
There is an inherent weakness of logic. For every truth-claim, you could ask yourself, "What convinces you of that?" You answer this with another truth claim. The first truth claim, truth claim A is proved by truth claim B. Truth claim B is proved by truth claim C. And on it goes. Eventually, the argument goes circular or else the argument goes to one of three kinds of miraculous revelations: rationalism, demon voices, or divine revelation.
One professor claimed that Evolution's stories could be proved using logic and observation. When asked the produce the proof, he found that he could not. After several months of trying, he said, "Nothing of any real interest can be proved by logic and observation." That is not true. We can prove the many things using simply logic and observation. If this were not true, we could not reliably produce electric motors, automobiles, or airplanes. Operational science is different from the type of science, forensic science, that is used to make arguments for origins. Operational science is much more reliable.
Evolutionists are forced to hold on tightly to some basic presuppositions. These presuppositions are just simple-minded assumptions. They are filters and a way to censor out any information that supports the existence of God. They set up a web of rules to filter out God. They will only accept those things that conform to Naturalism, materialism, and uniformitarianism. Naturalism claims that God does nothing. Materialism claims that there is no God or spiritual realm. Uniformitarianism claims that there was not creation and that there was no violent worldwide flood, as the Bible and numerous other historical accounts record. Whatever they observe that does not conform to this complex filter is censored. The way that it is censored can take several forms. Evolutionists may boldly proclaim that, though the data appears to support design and refute Evolution, yet it still must be interpreted to mean just the opposite of what it does mean. A backup method that Evolutionists use is to prophecy that in the future, science will be able to explain what they see as an anomaly. If that fails, they will hide the data, set it aside, or lie to keep the public from knowing the truth. The data clearly demolishes the story of Evolution and clearly supports the reality of the Creator God and His creation of the Universe and everything in it in a relatively short period of time. When confronted with the obvious, a closed-minded Evolutionists says, "Show me the design--I can't see it." They are willingly ignorant because they refuse to hold God in their knowledge. The reality is that these people, for whatever reason, don't what to know the Creator. They don't want to truly know Jesus, their Creator.
