Return to universal truth
Regarding Mark Peterson’s column of Feb. 7, using his own statements, his education has yet to begin. (Proverbs 9:10)
Darwin wasn’t the first to teach evolution as a fact. There are many references to this “religion of no god” in the Bible. St. Paul discovered it in the Epicurean culture, in Greek philosophy and elsewhere, however, it wasn’t called “evolution.”
Mr. Peterson stated the truth when he said, “heliocentrism is Biblically false.” However even today we refer to both the sun and the moon as rising and setting. We know the earth rotates on its axis about 1,000 mph at the equator, along with the entire atmosphere. The earth orbits around the sun at about 64,800 mph. It’s been theorized that the sun also is traveling at a tremendous speed.
The entire universe is in the Creator’s hand. He stretched it out to its present form (Isaiah 42:5). Since the God of the Bible created and controls all things, He can and did do anything He wanted to. What difference does it make as whether the earth or the sun is the center of the universe when the universe extends to infinity? Where is the center of infinity?
The lies of humanistic religion (evolution) are taught as fact in our schools, even though evolution has been disproved many times. Religion hasn’t been taken out of the schools – Christianity has. Why do public schools have so many problems with discipline, cheating and disrespect? Christian schools have almost no such problems because they teach the word of God. Christian students graduate knowing they are worth something and didn’t just come from primordial slime.
If you want some good science, look in the Bible. It is filled with scientific facts that have not changed since the triune God instituted them.
I'm completely unsure how to respond.
