by Moody Adams The departure of scientist from belief in a Creator is rather new. The most brilliant minds, like Copernicus, Kepler, Pascal, Boyle, Kelvin, Mendel, and Faraday, dating all the way back to the time of Plato and Aristotle—believed that we came into existence through the action of a divine Creator.
“For centuries after, theology reigned as queen of the sciences, and scientific inquiry was animated by the belief that human reason was a gift imparted by God so that man might gain knowledge about Him, His attributes, and the laws which govern His creation,” writes Ken Connor. .
Now embolden atheist, like Richard Dawkins, go on late-night TV talk shows and “denounce the ridiculous notion” that any intelligent person, let alone a scientist, could actually embrace the fantastic teachings of the Bible. He likens faith in a Creator to believing in the tooth fairy.
Dr. Collins led the team of scientists that successfully mapped the human genome. This research is enabling man to cure many infectious diseases. Pretty good work for a man who is so dumb he believes "the rediculous notion that there is a Creator."
