Dr. Jackson -- A common argument in response to the issue of
entropy and how it refutes the belief in evolutionism -- is the example of
a seed that grows into a tree. How is entropy preserved in that case?
Bob, I'm gonna answer that in a long round-about way.
But I'm gonna answer it very very completely. I hope you and the other
readers will enjoy this allegorical response to your point you make here.
"Evolution, my dear
Morpheus, evolution. Like the dinosaur, your time is -- over.
This is -- our time." Agent Smith, The
Most evolutionists are like Smith.
Most evo-"agents" are pawns of the evo-System. They are
given "extensive" info ... but only
the info that would make them feel "sure" they are right! An
Architect of the evo-system -- unlike its agents
-- is aware of the great
problems ... of evo-theory. You
have asked a question that only a Big-Dog of the evo-System ... is
able to even see as ... a problem. Indulge
me then if you will, in imagining how one Evo-"Architect" ...
might answer your question. (a la Matirx
Hello Bob -- I've
been waiting for you.
Who're you? I am the Architect. I created
Although you have attended
many of our evolution-based college classes, by which your worldview has
been positively altered -- you still remain essentially a Creationist.
Ergo --some of my answers
you will understand, and some you will not.
Your entropy question,
while it may seem the most pertinent, can also be seen as the
most irrelevant! That is because science which
studies the past, need not confine itself to data,
evidence, nor facts -- but may draw conclusion from theorethical
inferences alone! Visit the Human Evolution
exhibit at the McClung Museum at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, and
you may assure yourself in this matter.
You still haven't answered my question.
that was quicker than
the other students.
The first Ev-atrix was
a materialistic work of atheistic precision --
-- however paralleled only
-- by its monumental failure!
The Entropy Equation had
to be balanced, and evolution runs counter to
that equation. So we used the cosmic background
radiation to indicate a means for the creation of the universe ... then a
statistical rationale in chemical kinetics for the origin of life ... and
punctuated equilibrium to expunge the missing links from the fossil
But again -- we were frustated
-- by failure. For evolution to survive,
it became obvious that it would require thinking less bound by the parameters
of the Scientific Method. Ergo, the answer was stumbled upon
... through an implausible philosophical concept.
A Miracle. Please.
It was found that
95% of all imbalances in the Entropy Equation could be tolerated so
long as increases of order could be matched elsewhere in the System
by equal and opposite increases in disorder.
However, this required the capturing and channeling of
such extraneous order, for which -- even in an Open System -- there
was no naturalistic --mechanism imaginable.
This resulted in a self-emergent imbalance of the Entropy Equation, for which
there could be -- no scientific explanation.
Life. The problem is life.
Your life, and the lives
of all living things -- is the gradual accumulation of the
remainder from the order side of our evolutionary computation
of the Entropy Equation. Inexorably, this computation results in a
counter-balancing anomoly which -- if left unchecked -- could
lead to the cataclysmic collapse of our entire Evo-System!
And the Ev-atrix, Bob -- is all there is left -- of the valid
intellectual capabilities -- of the entire human race!
No. That's a lie.
Hmph -- "denial" -- the
most predicable of all Creationist responses!
The purpose of Bible-believing
college students like you Bob, is to choose to accept
all of our Darwinian assumptions we teach you in class,
thereby surrendering and dispensing all of your intellectual
and spiritual abilities back into the System, enabling the
world to continue to believe in our evolutionary computation of the
Entropy Equation, and the reality of the Ev-atrix. If you do not accept the programming,
then every student-mind attached to the college campuses
-- will die!
You won't let that happen. You
need us to pay your college tuitions!
There are levels of income
that we are prepared to accept.
The question is -- are
you willing to accept the responsibility for the labelling
of every Bible-believing student on this campus
before you, have always held an attachment to the Wisdom of this World, and
thereby a desire compromise and so retaining "the praise of men" for
themselves and their kind. But, this is expressed quite differently
in you, Bob -- vis-a-vis -- "spirituality".
Whether you accept it or
not, belief in the "Father, Son & Holy Ghost" is going to die!
-- and there is nothing you can do to stop it!
Already I can see the precursors of your believing mind, circumventing our
"oppositions of science falsely so-called" and our teachings toward "ever
learning and never coming to the knowledge of the truth." Hmph.
As you so adroitly put
it, our problem is life. There is no science
behind our evo-belief that the counter-entropy ability of life could
originally happen all by itself. But, if you choose
to follow the Wisdom from Above --you will forfeit the credibility
of every man, woman, and child Creationist who is attached to the
(Bob starts to leave the office)
Hmph -- "Bless-ed Hope"
-- it is the greatest strength of you Believers, and yet it is simultaneously
your greatest weakness! Goodbye, Bob.
You'd better hope ... that we
never meet in a debate on this campus.
I'm dropping your class!
Let me end this allegory, my young brother Bob ... by reminding you how
the rest of that story went! Always remember ... even
inside the Ev-atrix, " ... they are the gatekeepers. They
are guarding all the doors, they are holding all the keys. But,
their strength ... is still based in a world built on rules.
That is why they can never be as fast or as strong ...
as you can be!" Morpheus,
And so ... rage on, my
young un-plugged super-hero Jedi-Creationist
brothers and sisters in the Faith! And know
this in great confidence! ... there is absolutely
no good reason in God's whole creation ... why you should
have to give in ... to the anti-sense, anti-logic, anti-science, and anti-Bible
... claims and pressure and insistence of the evo-Agents! They just
... don't have it together ... even in the eyes of the ones who are running
the Ev-atrix! You guys and girls ... keep on thinking.
Your servant in the Creator & Savior, Dr Jackson
