Breaking News: Bible Supports Darwinian Evolution!!!
"In the last ten years we have come to realize humans are more like worms than we ever imagined."
-- Biologist Bruce Alberts, past president of the National Academy of Sciences; editor in chief of Science. Author of The Molecular Biology of the Cell, a standard cell biology university textbook.
Ball Bounces Bible study-of-the-Day™:
"Deuteronomy 28:39: You will plant vineyards and cultivate them but you will not drink the wine or gather the grapes, because worms will eat them."
Oh, my gosh! Humans eat grapes -- and so do worms!!!! We are like worms!!!
"Job 17:14 if I say to corruption, 'You are my father,' and to the worm, 'My mother' or 'My sister,'
Headline: Major Biblical Figure Acknowledges Darwin's Theory: Claims Worm For Ancestor!!!
Job 25:6 "how much less man, who is but a maggot— a son of man, who is only a worm!"
"Only a worm" -- what could be better than that as proof of darwinism? This fits the reductionist view of darwinian philosophy perfectly . But, Job, quibble-time: Which is it -- maggot or worm -- the Bible is so full of contradictions!!!
Psalm 22:6 "But I am a worm and not a man, scorned by men and despised by the people."
Psalm 22 is a messianic psalm -- strongly connected with Christ and his passion.
According to this psalm, the proper understanding of human beings is to not even think of ourselves as beings created in the image of God, capable of rational thought, creativity, moral choice, and as potential vessels for the Spirit of the living God -- the correct view is to think of ourselves as lowly worms.
Oh, my gosh, the darwinists have been right all along!!!
And now, stepping out on a darwinian tree-of-life limb, the first Ball Bounces Future-Quote™, circa 2050: ""In the last ten years we have come to realize humans are more like dirt than we ever imagined." -- Richard K. Ball.
Future-Quote Scripture support:
"the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being."
And that's the way the worm-like Ball bounces.
"... nothing intellectually compelling or challenging.. bald assertions coupled to superstition... woefully pathetic"
