We’ve heard a lot about the creation/evolution debate over the past few weeks since Bill Nye squared off with Ken Ham. Nye clearly communicated his previously-stated belief that rejection of evolution theory is akin to willfully embracing ignorance. However, most secular humanists don't realize that their own worldview is greatly limited. Creationists embrace natural law, science, philosophy, AND the supernatural. Evidence is evidence, and facts are facts; the difference in perspectives is interpretation. Faith is the substance of things unseen, the evidence of things hoped for. To believe that a creator God made all things, set them in motion, and maintains the universe is a plausible explanation for questions of origin. Embracing creation or intelligent design is not a denial of one’s intellect. It’s merely a rational decision, based on a relationship with a knowable God.
