Sunday Walk 27

In the video below Spike Psarris presents his testimony of how he went from being an atheist believing in deep time evolution to becoming a Christian by first accepting creationism.

Spike Psarris Testimony

Which do you think is more likely? (1) The Big Bang, or (2) The Six 24-Hour Day Biblical Creation? Be honest.

Psarris originally thought the Big Bang also. After all, that’s what he was taught from an early age. But he no longer does. If you want to hear some of the details justifying his creationist position, here is a talk by him on distant starlight, a major challenge to both positions.

Some naturalists hope the Big Bang is true because it avoids a privileged center (Earth). They replace the Creator with a random supernatural explosion. Christians, however, are divided on whether they should compromise by incorporating the Big Bang in their understanding of reality, or not.

If they do, they compromise on Genesis (and Revelation). What they read in those books becomes mythology. If they don’t, they wonder if their position can be justified. Given explanations from people like Psarris and Russell Humphreys or those in the documentary Is Genesis History?, I think biblical creationism can be justified. That means there is no need to compromise.

Sully Award

HeyLookAWriterFellow has announced the First Annual Sully Award for Excellence in Writerishness on March 21st.  I saw the announcement of the award on Jane Dougherty’s blog.  To enter you have to announce the Sully Award in your blog (which I am doing now) and you have to enter a piece of prose under 200 words in the comment section of his blog (which I plan to do shortly).

Check it out.  You might like it.

Here’s my entry, written long ago.  It is three chapters from an imaginary book that I dream of calling Georgette’s Songs.


Chapter M: At the Roqetscienski’s Backyard Party

“What’s Robert telling those kids, Martha?”

By the swing set, they could hear Robert’s voice rise, “…and then there was a BIG BANG!”

“Oh. He’s telling them his version of the creation of the universe.”

When the kids settled, he leaned in toward them and whispered, “And God said, ‘Oops.'”


Chapter M + 1: Another Way the Universe Might Have Started

Kathy’s six-year-old Billy sat by her. She whispered, “What was that crazy Dr. Roqetscientski telling you by the swing set?”

Billy shook his head and giggled.

“You can tell me.”

Billy refused.

“Whisper it in my ear.”

Billy spoke into her ear, “He said God pooped out the universe.”


Chapter M + 2: Still Another Way the Universe Might Have Started

“Robert Roqetscienski told your son that God pooped out the universe.”

“No! Even Robert’s not that stupid. Billy probably misunderstood.”

“You need to talk to your son.” Kathy told her husband.

“Hell, I don’t know how it started.”

Before bed, Billy’s father reasoned, “It might have been only a fart.”
