What I find so intellectually dishonest is that atheists insist on empirical evidence for the existence of God, and will not accept evidence of people having life changing experiences through Jesus Christ, people delivered from terrible addictions, testimonies of God working in their lives, testimonies of the supernatural and present day miracles, real people pouring out their hearts telling of their relationships with God and having his peace, joy, love etc, reject all historical written/archaeological evidence and fulfilled prophecy, and finally they reject the world and its vast beauty and diversity with infinite appearance of the highest levels of complexity in the simplest cell to the most complex thing in the known universe - the human brain!. The simplest cell in the world was computer modeled by Venter labs and it was sooo complex it required a cluster of 128 computers working simultaneously for 9-10 hours just to bring about one instance of cell division!
Yet they gladly and easily accept Abiogenesis which is just in the hypothesis stage, because after all these years since the Miller/Urey experiment, which they now agree was NOT the supposed early environment, Origin of Life is still an unworkable hypothesis, and scientists now believe that life could not have arisen by mere chance, and nobody can figure out how all of the complex genetic information came about and how all of the cellular molecular machinery came to be. So the most brilliant scientists, with millions of dollars and state of the art labs to simulate any environment, still cannot create life. Even Richard Dawkins admitted that Origin of Life is a "Gap which has not yet been filled" and that evolution needs genetics to get started and "NOBODY KNOWS HOW IT STARTED". Dawkins goes on to explain that he is expecting an unknown law of chemistry to be discovered. Well that's what they need to rescue them - the unknown law! So they are actually believing in an UNKNOWN LAW and that law may just turn out to be the GOD of the Universe!
What is ironic is that science is supposed to be based on empirical evidence, and Christianity is a faith based belief system. Yet the atheists have unwavering faith in Abiogenesis, either by aimless and random events (since most don't know the majority of scientists reject that explanation now) or by the unknown law! And they ridicule us for our faith in a Higher Intelligence in the universe which created the infinite complexity we see all around us! Yet Abiogenesis has its followers, regardless of evidence - its adherents believe it all happened by FAITH, without evidence! LOL
Quote from Dr. Roger White (evolutionist), Massachusetts Institute of Tech, Philosopher of Science:
"(1) There are a wide variety of suggestions as to how life might first have emerged.
(2) There is almost UNIVERSAL AGREEMENT that life did not first come about MERELY BY CHANCE."http://web.mit.edu/rog/www/paper... published in NOUS(peer reviewed)
