Who is God? Many atheists claim that God does not exist and as such they choose to not know who God really is. In their ignoring reality, making claims such as the universe created itself out of nothing; atheists try to make themselves feel better by making up gods to which they know do not exist while ignoring the one real and true God of the Holy Bible who has revealed Himself through the order and design of all of nature and universe. To know who God is, we need to understand the attributes of God to get an understanding of who God is. Below are the known attributes of God. SELF-EXISTENT: God has no cause; He does not depend on anything for his continued existence. TRANSCENDENT: God is entirely distinct from the universe, as the carpenter is distinct from the bench; excluding pantheism (God in all) and animism (everything is a god). IMMANENT: Though transcendent, God is present with and in the world; excluding deism (God is out there but not here). IMMUTABLE: God is perfect in that He never changes nor can He change with respect to His being, attributes, purpose, or promises; excluding process theology, Mormon doctrine of eternal progression. ETERNAL: God is perfect in that He transcends all time and temporal limitations, and is thus infinite with respect to time. OMNIPRESENT: God is perfect in that He transcends all space and spatial limitations, and is thus infinite with respect to space, with His whole Being filling every part of the universe and being present everywhere (not diffused through the universe, but present at each point in His fullness). OMNIPOTENT: God is perfect in that He can do all things consistent with the perfection of His being. God cannot do the self-contradictory (e.g., make a rock He cannot lift), nor can He do that which is contrary to His perfect nature (e.g., He cannot change, He cannot lie, etc.). OMNISCIENT: God is perfect in that He knows all things, including events before they happen. INCORPOREAL: God has no body or parts, and is immaterial, being a simple and infinite being of spirit; excluding the Mormon doctrine of God as an exalted man. ONE: God is a perfectly unique and simple being, existing as one infinite Being called God. There is therefore only one God, who is called Yahweh in the Old Testament, and who reveals Himself in the persons of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the New Testament; thus excluding polytheism, tritheism (belief in three gods), and subordinationism (in which Christ is a lesser god subordinate to the Almighty God). CREATOR: God is the One through whom all things have come into existence; by His unbounded power and...
Darwinian Evolution from Leading Darwinists Here is the truth about Darwinian Evolution (Darwinism) directly from Leading Darwinists themselves. Let’s review the truth about Darwinism that Leading Darwinists proclaim about Darwinian Evolution and draw some deductions from what we learn so that we can come to an informed conclusion about Darwinism. Truth about Darwinism from Leading Darwinists Franklin Harold, Emeritus Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Colorado State University stated; “we must concede that there are presently no detailed Darwinian accounts of the evolution of any biochemical or cellular system, only a variety of wishful speculations.” (Harold, Franklin M. (Prof. Emeritus Biochemistry, Colorado State University) The way of the cell: molecules, organisms and the order of life, Oxford University Press, New York, 2001, p. 205) Paul Davies a British-born, internationally acclaimed physicist, writer and broadcaster, who holds the position of Professor of Natural Philosophy in the Australian Centre for Astrobiology at Macquarie University, Sydney admitted; “Nobody knows how a mixture of lifeless chemicals spontaneously organized themselves into the first living cell.” (Davies, Paul, Australian Centre for Astrobiology, Sydney, New Scientist 179(2403):32, 2003.) Andrew Knoll, professor of biology, Harvard, said, “we don’t really know how life originated on this planet.” (Knoll, Andrew H., PBS Nova interview, How Did Life Begin? July 1, 2004) Francis Crick, the co-discoverer of the double helix structure of DNA, wrote, “Biologists must constantly keep in mind that what they see was not designed, but rather evolved.” (Crick, F., What mad pursuit: a Personal View of Scientific Discovery, Sloan Foundation Science, London, 1988, p. 138.) Richard Dawkins a British ethologist, evolutionary biologist and author wrote, “biology is the study of complicated things that have the appearance of having been designed with a purpose.” (Dawkins, R., The Blind Watchmaker, W.W. Norton & Company, New York, p. 1, 1986) Richard Dawkins also said, “[Darwinian] Evolution has been observed. It’s just that it hasn’t been observed while it’s happening.” (pbs.org/now/printable/transcript349_full_print.html>, 3 December, 2004) Harvard paleontologist (and Darwinian evolutionist), Stephen Jay Gould, wrote, “The extreme rarity of transitional forms in the fossil record persists as the trade secret of paleontology”. (Gould, Stephen Jay, Evolution’s erratic pace, Natural History 86(5):14, May 1977) Gould also wrote, “the maintenance of stability within species must be considered as a major evolutionary problem.” (Gould, S.J. and Eldredge, N., Punctuated equilibrium comes of age. Nature 366:223–224, 1993) Dr. Marc Kirschner, chair of the Department of Systems Biology, Harvard Medical School, stated: “In fact, over the last 100 years, almost all of biology has proceeded independent of evolution, except evolutionary biology itself. Molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, have not taken evolution into account at all.” (As quoted in the Boston Globe, 23 October 2005) NAS(USA) member Dr. Philip Skell wrote, “Darwinian explanations for such...
