Evolution | Answers in Genesis

Operational, experimental science has never demonstrated life randomly evolving from non-living elements. In fact, such an occurrence would violate the most fundamental observable law of biology: life comes from life, not from non-life. But another show-stopper for abiogenesis would be a lack of power.

When discussing natural selection as a possible mechanism for evolution, it is important to define both terms. Evolutionists and biblical creationists view these terms differently, but it comes down to how we interpret the evidence in light of our foundation. Do we view natural selection using Gods Word as our foundation, or do we use mans truth as our foundation?

Some evolutionists have argued thatscienceisnt possible without evolution. They teach that science and technology actually require the principles of molecules-to-man evolution in order to work. But without uniformity in nature, predictions would be impossible, and science could not exist. The problem for evolutionism is that such regularity only makes sense in a biblical creation worldview.

The Scopes monkey trial of Dayton, Tennessee, in 1925, plays a unique role in the modern creationevolution controversy. Hollywoods Inherit the Wind was a dramatic retelling of the event that distorted many of the basic facts, with those distortions uniformly weakening the creationist position. But taught properly, the Bible-believing student can face science class confidently prepared to learn about and critically analyze evolutionary theories.

What is Christian Rationalism? – GotQuestions.org

Posted: August 14, 2016 at 7:10 pm

Question: “What is Christian Rationalism?”

Answer:

According to the Christian Rationalism website, thousands of years ago great men driven by ideals of reform tried with their teachings to enlighten humanity. Men such as Jesus, Buddha, Confucius and Mohammed taught similar spiritual principles; however, they were not truly understood and ended up being deified by the illiterate masses. Once the idea of divinization took hold, the respective religions were created, each preaching a different form of speculative worship, and the followers of each flocked together. All of them taught the principles that Christian Rationalism now teaches and thus, despite their name, they have nothing to do with the biblical Jesus Christ.

According to its adherents, Christian Rationalism deals with physical and psychic phenomena, philosophical and psychological issues, reincarnation, incorporeal life, space and the universe, the power of thought, evolution, gods and religions, force and matter, the aura, ethics, family and children. Quite a vast array of topics are incorporated into Christian rationalism, many of which are clearly occult in nature, in particular psychic phenomena and reincarnation.

The basic beliefs of the Christian Rationalists are contrary to Scripture, beginning with their concept of God as a universal spiritual force, or a universal intelligence, not a Person. CR adherents see God as made up of billions and billions of intelligent spiritual particles, of which man is part. That means that each one of us is a particle of that universal force which is God. This philosophy is rampant among New Age cults and false religions. The belief that man can be God is very appealing to our fallen nature, originating in the Garden of Eden with the first lie told by Satan: you shall be as God (Genesis 3:5). Jesus, according to the Christian Rationalists, was not God incarnate as Scripture states, but simply a good, moral man who said good things. He is not the one and only Savior of the world, despite His own claims to be the only Way, the only Truth and the only Life and the only access to the Father (John 14:6). To the adherents of CR philosophy, a Christian is not one who believes in the biblical Jesus for salvation, following and obeying Him. Rather, a Christian is one whose behavior lines up with Christian morality, but the word non-biblical is added to the statement, causing one to wonder where they find the morality they call Christian, if not in the Bible.

Christian Rationalism is just another part of Satan’s attempt to deceive people into thinking that they are gods and can find their own identity and meaning through his pseudo world. It is, of course, completely against the teaching of the Bible and the God-man, Jesus Christ, the Redeemer, and coming King of the world, and the One whom true believers will worship and serve for all eternity.

In the interest of ensuring transhuman is NPOV: Who decides what the definition of transhumanism is?

This element of humanism, is that from huxley or someone else?

Does the man who invented the word, Julian Huxley decide the definition of Transhumanism, does one in modern times who publically states the definition decide or does the World Transhumanism Association decide?

I would like clarity as to who ultimately determines what transhumanism means because the definition used by the WTA and other groups differs. More importantly, what gives one authority or the command to be able to define in an undisputed what transhumanism is, so that other POVs can be excluded?

For instance I have reviewed the entire transtopia.org, prometheism.net and cosmotheism.net site, and I cant seem to figure out how you could label it as disputed in the links section?

What is to say the world transhumanism association isnt disputed?

I can see how one might label cosmotheism as white racial separatist, but prometheism.net and transtopia.org I would like more discussion as to why it is disputed as a transhumanism group. And why is Cosmotheism a disputed offshoot? Cosmotheism was developed in the 1960s and 1970s which came before extropy and WTA, so why is it an offshoot? I thought offshoot meant, that something existed and a branch or seed came off that plant. Can you please define offshoot and explain who decides what is or is not transhumanism?

More on this humanism element of Transhumanism, is that from huxley or someone else? Thanks.

Why does the link to cosmotheism keep getting deleted? Just because that article had a banned user associated w it doesnt make it any less relevent. Sam [Spade] 20:56, 4 Aug 2004 (UTC)

Why is transtopia.org, prometheism.net and cosmotheism.net labelled pseudotranshuman organizations? To me that represents bias as to why those web sites would be labelled pseudo, what makes a web site pseudo?

On the front page of prometheism.net it states the following

(Prometheism is) The First Sovereign Transtopian & Neo-Eugenic Libertarian Religious-State.

In the principles sections of prometheism it states

Our Promethean Species embraces Conscious Evolution

Our immediate aim is to create a neo-eugenically enhanced race that will eventually become a new, superior species with whatever scientific means are available at the present time. In the short-term, this will be achieved via neo-eugenics, ie. voluntary positive eugenics, human cloning, germ-line engineering, gene therapy and genetic engineering.

In the long-term, when the science becomes available we intend to utilize transhuman technologies: nanotechnology, mind uploading, A/I and other variations of ultra exo-tech.

Our goal is to enable total and unlimited self-transformation, consciousness and expansion across the universe of our species.

It also states note the key words Transhuman Technologies and the embracing of transhumanism and extropy.

We Define neo-eugenics as conscious evolution (these words are interchangeable). Purposefully directed evolution via voluntary positive neo-eugenics (including voluntary selective breeding), cloning, genetic engineering and ultimately any and all transhuman technologies. Neo-Eugenics means harnessing all science, technology and knowledge available now or in the future, guiding it with spirituality, ethical considerations and higher consciousness, ultimately towards achieving total and unlimited self transformation. The term Neo-Eugenics embodies the sciences and philosophies involved in Biotechnology, Extropy and Transhumanism all merged in a philosophy of spiritual Conscious Evolution.

I believe removing prometheism from this page, will be cause to bring this issue to arbitration to confirm that the individual who keeps removing it obviously is biased and lacks an understanding of what transhumanism. NPOV. thats your problem brian NPOV and blatant bias.

The man who invented the word Transhumanism (Huxley), was an open, avid and published advocate of state sponsored coercive eugenics, selective breeding, and elitist eugenic communities.

Transtopia.org and prometheism.net DO NOT SUPPORT COERCIVE EUGENICS in their PRINCIPLES, THEY SUPPORT VOLUNTARY EUGENICS READ VOLUNTARY.

I ask you to bring arbitration and discussion on this fact. Your censorship, bias and personal agenda will not win. Go to prometheism.net right now and find one place on this site that says prometheism supports COERCIVE EUGENICS. you will not find it anywhere. Prometheism.net clearly states that it only supports voluntary eugenics. Read the sworn oath on prometheism.net

The Sworn Oath of Prometheism (front page of prometheism.net)

We Prometheans are voluntarily coming together to purposefully direct the creation of a new post-human species. A species with higher intellect, creativity, consciousness and love of ones people. A communion of intellect and beauty, for the simple reason that it can be done. This creation is what gives us purpose and meaning. No other justification is required for this program to advance our Promethean species.

5. Total Freedom, Liberty and Self-Determination

Our Libertarian religious nation is founded on the principles of total freedom of speech (including offensive language and language which hurts peoples feelings), freedom of thought, the right to bear arms, liberty, progress, productivity and the pursuit of individual happiness.

nation is VOLUNTARY ONLY. We REJECT all totalitarianism and believe COERCIVE neo-eugenics is counter to the ideal of individual freedom. The promethean governments sole purpose is to protect the rights of the individual. We DO NOT wish to STERILIZE anyone or FORCE anyone to practice neo-eugenics.

DNA or genetic capital is the most valuable commodity in the universe. Our primary goal is to promote positive and voluntary neo-eugenics by channeling national resources to the best, brightest and most creative.

This is from the principles of prometheism.net Last Updated: 3/13/03 this means that prometheism is NOT FRINGE, it does not support the fringe philosophy of FORCED COERCIVE EUGENICS.

After serving in the US Air Force as a flight surgeon, I started an Ob/Gyn practice in Brazoria County, Texas and have since delivered over 4,000 babies. I decided to enter politics when President Nixon broke the last link between the dollar and gold, thus starting the inflation that continues to destroy the value of the dollar and undermine the earnings of all Americans.

I have served ten terms in Congress and have never wavered from my commitment to the Constitution and the principles of a free society. In 1976, I was one of four sitting GOP Congressmen to endorse the upstart Ronald Reagan in the Republican primaries. But I also spoke out against the unprecedented deficits incurred by Reagan’s administration.

For my relentless opposition to unconstitutional legislation, I have been called: “Dr. No” The “Taxpayers’ Best Friend” by the the National Taxpayers Union The “one exception to the Gang of 535” on Capitol Hill by former Treasury Secretary William Simon.

I have worked tirelessly for limited constitutional government, individual rights, low taxes, free markets, a peaceful foreign policy and sound monetary policies. I am running for President as a Republican to bring the Grand Old Party back to its roots as the party of the 1994 Revolution, President Reagan, Sen. Goldwater and Sen. Taft.

Rand Paul selling 'NSA spy cam blocker'

Posted: April 8, 2015 at 4:47 am

NSA Spy Cam Blocker. Credit: Store.RandPaul.com

“That little front facing camera on your laptop or tablet can be a window for the world to see you – whether you know it or not! Stop hackers and the NSA with this simple camera blocker. Safe and practical,” the online store says of the product.

Several of the Paul products include visuals of the Constitutionincluding a T-shirt and an iPhone casewhich is a political theme for the son of libertarian icon and former Texas congressman Ron Paul.

“I am running for president to return our country to the principles of liberty and limited government,” a quote attributed to Paul says on his sitewhich broke the news the senator would run ahead of his scheduled midday in-person announcement.

The store even offers a $1,000 Paul-autographed Constitution. “It’s hard to find a greater defender of the U.S. Constitution in the Halls of Congress than Rand Paul,” the item’s description says.

But the merchandise goes beyond accessories: Paul’s branded clothing is “fashion for a cause,” his website says.

Read MoreWhy Rand Paul probably can’t win GOP nom

“It’s easy to be a fashion plate for the world’s biggest brands. When you wear the Rand Brand, you look good and stand for something bigger than all of us … liberty,” the site boasts, adding “Thomas Jefferson would be proud.”

Such fashion includes a T-shirt proclaiming “Don’t Drone Me, Bro!”

Even the payment options take a decidedly contemporary twist for the Kentucky senator’s campaign. In addition to credit card and PayPal choices, Paul’s website allows supporters to donate in bitcoin (the cryptocurrency boasts a strong following among a subset of libertarians).

The Fix: Will Rand Paul inherit the energy of Ron Pauls campaigns?

Posted: April 7, 2015 at 9:41 am

Last week, Michael Nystrom wrote a post at DailyPaul.com, a site he founded, that indicates its end is near. The site was for years a focal point of conversation and energy orbiting the stated and implied political philosophy of Ron Paul. Its animated logo unveils the site’s mantra: P (eace) – AU (gold) – L (love).

No longer. “We’ll watch the opening of the Rand Paul campaign. That should be interesting,” Nystrom wrote in the post, nestled between a report on artificial chemicals from Infowars and critique of the State Department. “But then I’ll have to go, because my alliance is not with any politician or any political party, but with Liberty herself.”

Earlier this year, he offered more of a rationale. “The Ron Paul era is over. We’re moving into the Rand Paul era. So out of respect to both men, but mainly to Ron, a chapter should officially be closed.”

Since it became obvious that he would run for president — something that is expected to become official on Tuesday — two questions have surrounded Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) First, could he retain the energy of Ron Paul’s vocal and generous base of support in his 2008 and 2012 campaigns? (Update: The Times reports that Ron Paul will attend the announcement.) And, second, could he distance himself from his father’s more … exotic beliefs? We’ve addressed the latter before; so far, he’s emerged unscathed, even as Ron Paul keeps doing his own thing.

But what about the former? There’s not much mention of Rand in the comments to Nystrom’s farewell address. Over at Ron Paul Forums, though, the Paul family chapter seems to be continuing, rather than closing. “That was a great promo!,” commented Bastiat’s The Law on a post containing Rand’s announcement video. “Reminds me of some of the passionate Ron Paul youtube videos.”

There hasn’t been polling showing how Ron Paul supporters from 2008 and 2012 are leaning in 2016. But we can compare Washington Post polling on the favorability of each as an indicator. We focused on age, because of the frequent assumption that Rand hopes to mobilize the young voters that powered his father’s campaigns.

In March 2012, late into the campaign cycle, Ron Paul was seen less favorably than Rand is now, even though both were about equally well-known.

What’s more, Ron hadweaker support and faced stronger opposition than Rand is seeing.

That suggests that Rand Paul’s balancing act, which the Post reported on earlier Monday, might be working. Nick Gillespie of Reason magazine called Rand Paul “libertarian-ish,” which probably isn’t a huge negative for someone running in what will likely be a series of conservative Republican primaries.

The poll numbers above mightalso serve as a reminder that Rand Paul hasn’t yet seen the sort of criticism that tends to wither a politician’s base of support. That’s where Ron Paul’s base shined. It’s been eight years since he first ran for the GOP nomination for president, and they’ve kept up active discussion groups dedicated to his principles. As the header at DailyPaul makes clear, Ron’s fervent focus on less-trodden, outsider issueslike gold earned him that loyalty.
