is likely that the controversy following Darwin’s theory of evolution
initiated between fundamental monotheists and the proof-bound
scientific community may have been in God’s plan all along. First to
confound the scholar and secondly to confront the seemingly righteous.
is becoming apparent that the deeper the scientists probe into the big
bang phenomenon the more they run out of causative room. Then, as some
astronomical scientists have done, they must surrender to admission
that there was an unexplainable initiation of what appears to have been
a miraculous plan.
the other side of the bar, the religious proponents of a geologically
recent six day creation of Earth are also confounded by the evidence
of scientific discovery. In the face of geological evidence they
resort to literal interpretation of the word in their biblical texts
and rationalize it within the context of man’s mortal experience.
beliefs can be resolved and made symbiotic through acceptance that the
God of creation is both omnipotent and timeless. God without time is
voiced in the bible, and now multi-dimensional time is being used
by scientists to explain Universal events. Thus, God in his
timelessness would have had an infinity of time to act and leave
physical evidence during each single second in the time-line
known to man; using only a two-dimensional parameter of time.
God’s revelation to Charles Darwin initiated the process that
ultimately questions the position of both groups on creation and man's
existence; and evokes to each group a
poignant reminder not to sell Him short! It seems one group has
the “Who” but not the “How” and the other group has grasp of the “How”
but not the “Who.” Obviously the "When" is somewhere in God's
timelessness, and the “Why” is still under discussion.
