ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The late, renowned atheist Christopher Hitchens was said to be a very likable guy. He was not so nice, however, when writing against those of us who believe the words of the Bible.

Even fellow humanists have noted the shocking intolerance and bigotry exhibited by the “new atheists,” including commentary bemoaning the days when dissenters were burned at the stake. Origin is a controversial issue, no doubt, as evidenced by its inclusion in every recent presidential race. Janet Folger famously wrote: “There is a mountain in South Dakota that proves what evolutionists have been saying all along: If you just have enough time, wind, rain, erosion and pure chance, you can get a mountain with the faces of four U.S. presidents on it! If we can all admit that the faces of Mt. Rushmore didn’t just accidentally appear, how much more complex are the people standing behind the podiums who want to be president?”

The systems of bacteria are so intricate and highly complex that Michael Denton compared them to spaceships in his book “Evolution: A Theory in Crisis.” In fact, they are far more sophisticated than much that has been designed by man.

Jesus said those designs clearly point to God (Romans 1:20), that though we have sinned and are facing judgment, God has provided a way of escape (Romans 6:23) and that this is a free gift (Ephesians 2:8, 9). Why? Just ask Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow.
