Editorial: March 2002:
"Human Development": continued ...
Editorials January to June 2002 are now part of the downloadable
book Of Truth
Creation belief is the principle base for all human behaviour -
it is our base for life's meaning - it is our base for how we see
ourselves, our future, our morals and our justice.
So why have we taken it so casually? Why so easily deceived? Did
we feel that being responsible for our actions was too big a load
to bear? Did seductions of animal passions overpower us? Was it
our own entire fault?
- You will find some answers on this site
but basically, the fall of man was caused by the seduction of
the animal side of our being. Were we not created perfect? We
were created perfect for fulfilment of the purpose of our creation.
- We had to glimpse hell through the fires
of temptation! We had to learn from and be strengthened by our
mistakes! We needed to discover the alternatives of animal and
human! We had the challenge of a human potential to develop and
truth was there to be found. Yes the Creator did create both good
and evil, it is for our benefit.
Some fail, some triumph, that is a need of the process! Those who
triumph (accept their true nature) will find a world where the prey
and the predator in us walk side by side. No longer will we use
each other to satisfy greeds, prides and prejudices. No longer will
we sacrifice others to satisfy lusts.
As creation belief is so basic to human development and behaviour,
let us follow up on current science as it relates to chance evolution.
The "Evolution" series recently shown on TV revealed that
our science has progressed in understanding of "genes";
genes hold the answer to our creation. There is new evidence for
intelligent creation that adds to evidence already significant.
Chance creation theory is fundamentally flawed. Those arguing the
theory always direct the attention of the reader/listener away from
basic science: their arguments concentrate, essentially, on the
more easily fudged frivolities. By scientific mind manipulation
chance creation has been presented with such force throughout the
world that people believe they are being told established facts
and, believing, defend what they are told.
- Genetics science (as stated on the "Evolution"
tapes; available retail) reveals a basic genetic design for animate
life present in early life-forms. Genetics science has now advanced
to reveal genetic pre-design of biological structures. Genes for
eyes, limbs, body, head and tail were part of a basic genetic
structure from the beginning.
Genes did not evolve gradually as "Evolution", nevertheless,
continues to preach. The new evidence confirms past evidence: i.e.
genetic structure began as complex and that random 'chance mutation
and selection' are specialising forces to reduce the load of damaged
and unused genes. These are forces that lead toward extinction.
Given this information it is difficult to see how it can be seriously
argued that each species of animal, insect, reptile, bird and mankind
was created by chance. Chance is destructive, not creative! All
passionate argument for chance creation is in shambles.
As life-forms enter diverse environments beneficial genes dominate;
those unhelpful or detrimental become irrelevant. Legs do not advantage
a fish! Legs are only useful transitionally: that is, if the fish
has a genetic alternative to transform to a land animal.
Genetic design is far too complex to be created by chance - to
say genes could be so created, and even before needs arise, is pure
The mechanism whereby species genes are organised as needed is
not yet uncovered but it is logical to assume that, in a developing
creation, they are triggered by opportunities of environment. The
natural forces of chance mutation destroy unneeded genes and once
a gene is lost to a species, chance cannot replace it, e.g., the
vitamin C gene we once had.
- The detail design of a basic structure
that allows life-forms to assemble as needed, and adapt to a developing
world, may seem miraculous, but only intellect can foresee need
and design for it. Original genetic structure is ordered so as
to assemble life-forms that are flexible to various stages of
earth's development. Embryo development and metamorphosis may
give clues to the mechanism.
- What was clear to the honest eye is now
illuminated. Biological life was pre-designed for a developing
world and man's adventure to humanity. We are given intellect
to understand ourselves in today's world. Man alone among animals
has the gift of creative intellect: in creative intellect we are
in the spiritual image of the Creator!
It should now be clear that chance plays no part other than to
destroy damaged or unused genes: this, as a help to preserving original
designs, reflects intelligent creation.
The Evolution tapes say Christians listening to the evolution
story ask: "Where is a place for God in this?" The word
"God" is a pre-Christian image for the Creator! Jesus
of Nazareth revealed that God is Truth and laid the foundation for
a scientific understanding of creation. Truth is the image for God
for a world of science. Truth as God is a revelation given for the
Christians should ask, "Where is truth in the evolution religion"?
When the question is put in the way of today's understanding it
is more pertinent.
Next month: A hint from Revelation. Don't miss it.
Note 1: Although unplanned it seems that the first four editorials
of the year have a larger message to bring us. It is now planned
that they become part of the on-site book "Of TRUTH" ,
possibly in June. In the meantime they will remain, in order of
presentation, in the "Retired Editorials" file.

it should try again. For unknown reasons some emails arrive incomplete;
two were lost to a virus.
