Big bang theory hard to believe
Placeholder Image
Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
There was an article Saturday from columnist Daniel Kline that said “Acts of faith no matter how societal ingrained have no place in the public school system….”

If that is in fact the belief of the left they need to quickly remove the teaching of evolution in public schools. It takes far more faith to believe that somehow life was able to materialize from some big bang than to believe in a loving God creating us. I heard once that the numerical odds of life from a big bang happening are about the same as those where a tornado would hit a junkyard and leave behind a passenger jet. I don’t believe I would be willing to fly on that plane and I won’t bet my soul on the theory of evolution even though it is taught as fact in our public schools. Here is one more question for those who believe in evolution: We all know the heat from the sun has had to be perfect for life to exist on earth. So how can any object without an external source of fuel, burn for millions of years and not consume itself at least somewhat? If it did we would not have the heat we need for life. Many astronomers say the galaxy is 10,000 years old and that makes sense, plus it just happens to fit the biblical record - which would you chose to believe?

I prefer to think like former President Harry Truman who in 1952 said, “Through Jesus Christ the world will yet be a better and a fairer place. This faith sustains us today as it has sustained mankind for centuries past. This is why the Christmas story, with the bright stars shining and the angels singing, moves us to wonder and stirs our hearts to praise. Now my fellow countrymen, I wish for you all a Christmas filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit, and many years of future happiness with the peace of God reigning upon this earth.”

Thank you to David Darton of Wall Builders for this piece of history.
