The world's best selling atheist, Richard
Dawkins, is conceding quite a bit these days.
You'd sort of expect a leading spokesperson for Darwinian evolution to have an
answer as to how life began, right?
I mean after all, the whole debate is about
origins and the Darwinians and their elders in the atheist movement are
absolutely certain there is no God, no Creator, and no intelligent Designer who
could have possibly started all of this. Isn't that what the debate is all
about? A Darwinian, atheistic worldview with no room for God, especially
at the point of origin?
Stein asked Richard Dawkins about these things in the movie Expelled.
Professor Dawkins was forthright in his answer that he does not know how life
began. He does not know how the origin of the first cells began. He does not
know where the elements came from to create the process of life. He and his
Darwinian colleagues simply don't know.
How refreshing. For years, the Darwinians
attacked Christians as Know-Nothings when it came to the question of origins.
They accused theistic scientists of defaulting to the "God of the
gaps". In other words, plugging God into any hole that evidence could not
Now the shoe is on the other foot, as Professor
Dawkins and his friends finally admit they have no clue how life began.
But they are certain, however it began, it must have been through some
evolutionary process. No evidence required. Just plug Darwin into the gaps where
there is no evidence.
If you have not seen the movie Expelled
may I encourage you to do so? On TV, via rental or DVD, get a copy and listen to
the debate for yourself.
