So I survived 6 years at a high school situated in the middle of nowhere, and now I’m in the university. Between these two periods, I experienced a lot of things. I’ve had to sit through soul-destroying Biology lectures, been to Philosophy classes, been to seminars that talked on evolution n’ natural selection n’ all of that. I’ve discussed with atheists, agnostics, bums e.t.c., who claim that GOD doesn’t exist and that the universe came about by means of an epic orgy between the cosmos, where intergalactic semen was ejaculated at the speed of light throughout the space-time continuum, giving rise to the stars n’ planets n’ life as we know it (of which I’m perfectly disbelieving). I’ve even done some private research, and all I have to say is, well, I’m not impressed, neither am I convinced. This is my personal opinion. Don’t argue with me. I’m not gonna go into much detail about what all those theories n’ assumptions state, as I’ve already given a brief summary of what the big bang theory was all about, but I am gonna make my own logical deductions n’ whatever whatever, to tell you why I think most of it doesn’t make any sense.
First off, I have to say that Jean Lamarck must’ve been the dumbest fool in eternity. In fact he still is. Since the dawn of time, I don’t think any other person has ever come up with anything as profoundly stupid as what that man, born Jean-Baptiste Lamarck came up with. That his theory, it was dogsh*t. Complete dogsh*t. It had no redeemable qualities. None at all. But my anger shouldn’t be with Jean, it should be with Darwin. Jean’s theory died long ago in a fatal car crash between clashing opinions, but Charles’s theory still breathes air till this very day. I am disturbed by this.
A guy once ranted, “my problem with science is that it gives us fragments of alleged knowledge that it fails to harmonize with one another, y’know. It collects observations of uniformities, and dignifies them with the names of given laws, giving its own interpretation of whatever it perceives as correct; and with a small degree of certitude, establishes its conclusions. All that it teaches is only provisionally true. What is prized today as the highest truth is overthrown tomorrow and experimentally replaced by something else. It’s an ever-changing process where the latest error is given the name of most recent truth.” Well, those weren’t his exact exact words, but you probably get the idea. I agree with practically all the things he said. And don’t get it twisted, it’s not like I’m trying to denigrate the whole scientific process or anything…. hold up, on second thought, maybe I actually am, but I’m too chicken to admit it. I don’t really know. But that’s not the point. What I *think* I’m trying to do, is to show you that science isn’t immune to mistakes n’ miscalculations. And that for the most part, a few of its established findings are majorly flawed. Like this whole unending debate about whether or not the world was created by GOD, or whether GOD exists, it’s flat-out pointless. Here’s why…
It’s obvious that there’s an order to the world. Even a fool knows this. As St. Thomas Aquinas puts it, “things act and react in specific ways under specific circumstances. Even unintelligent things are predisposed to “this” and not “that”. This order inherent in even inanimate things necessitates an intelligence to direct it. This intelligence, we call GOD”. This was aptly explained by the bespectacled dude, Gregory Watson over at The Catholic Chapter House. The explanation went something like this (with a few minor adjustments)…… when potassium (K) reacts with water (H2O), an explosion occurs. 2K + 2H20 -> 2KOH + H2 + (BOOM!). This reaction always occurs in this manner. That’s the way it was designed to happen. It’s a testable, repeatable fact of nature. Whether it be water boiling at specifically 100 degrees or metals conducting electricity, it just proves to show that things are specifically ordered towards specific ends. The above example of potassium reacting with water is an example of an inanimate object, a thing with no intellect, acting in a specific way. The potassium cannot decide to simply dissolve in the water, neither can it decide to take selfies with the water, or skinny dip in the water, no. It must react with the water explosively to form the given products. It is ordered to this particular end. It is intrinsic to what it means to be potassium to react with water in this particular way. Even if there was no water for it to react with, it would still possess this predisposition. The relation between these two elements exists and has always existed. They are related in this specific manner. Like 2 pieces of a puzzle joined to make meaning. The only way for a relation like this to have come about, is if such a relation existed in a “mind” before it existed in “reality”, try to understand that. The only plausible explanation for this is by way of intentional design. Order implies intelligence. Since potassium and water and the like don’t have minds, they must’ve received the order to act in the way they do from somewhere else, from a higher power, from a higher intelligence. This couldn’t possibly be attributed to blind chance ‘cuz it always happens, we know this for a fact, and in this same particular way. And come to think of it, if there wasn’t such order in the world, we wouldn’t have science as a whole. The laws of science are dependent on these recurrences in nature, namsayin. Now think about what you’ve just read, and reflect. Ask yourself some salient questions. Potassium didn’t have to evolve to be able to react with water. It was already designed to do so, and has always done so. Things like this were ordered and put in place, which just proves to show that everything in nature is deliberate.The way things are connected to one another, they couldn’t possibly be unintentional. Think about it, how could something as intricate as the human nervous system theoretically be as a result of a blind chance over millions of years? C’mon people, do the arithmetic. Okay, now follow this train of thought… As it was stated before, things of the same nature follow the same patterns, are ordered towards the same ends, and for the most part, share the same traits, agreed? Agreed. All living things must die, right? All forms of matter are made up of atoms and molecules. All objects are subject to temperature change. All explosions result in disorderliness. The alleged Big Bang was the most intense of all explosions, how come it gave rise to some of the most orderly systems imaginable? Now hold on, this logic may seem basic and elementary, but it actually makes sense if you really think about it. Gather all the facts surrounding the alleged occurrence of the big bang and do the math yourself, I can’t start going into all that now. Just use your brain.
The creation of something as rudimentary as the lightbulb was deliberate, not a mistake. But the creation of something as intricate as the universe was a mistake or merely coincidental? Once again, not making sense.
I can’t prove the existence of GOD with pure logic, it’s a matter of faith. But I can make evident the flaws in contemporary reason. It’s all a matter of what you choose to believe tho. If you ask me, it doesn’t make much sense to believe that we evolved from floating carbon atoms to pre-historic tadpoles to teenage mutant ninja turtles to cro-magnons n’ then humans. Naaaw, or that some elusive meteor just ctrl+alt+del’d all previous lifeforms off the face of the earth and gave rise to new ones (well that’s slightly believable, but I don’t buy it). But even if a fish had to grow legs n’ moonwalk out of the ocean onto dry land to escape the threat of potential predators n’ what not, that still doesn’t change the fact that there’s a story behind the origin of the fish itself. There were deliberate processes involved in the creation of the universe mahn. Nothing was based on coincidence. It’s all one big elaborate design. C’mon… okay, consider the following; it just so happens that each species possesses both male and female genders with specific reproductive organs for the purpose of procreation, and as for the ones that don’t, they’re still able to reproduce because they’re hermaphroditic… It just so happens that all living things have lifespans that function to prevent the earth from getting too crowded by keeping the population in check… Again, it just so happens that the earth (the only planet inhabited by humans n’ plants n’ animals n’ all that) has an ozone layer that protects it from the ultraviolet rays of the sun, and the other planets (devoid of any form of life or life-supporting factors), do not. Coincidence? I think not… Then again, all the natural cycles; the water, carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen cycles that see to the replenishment and preservation of nutrients n’ elements n’ whatever whatever in the environment, theoretically just happened to come about by mere happenstance? Naaw, I do not agree with that. That’s not right. That doesn’t make sense. All of the above stated examples were intentional acts. Intentional acts of benevolence. Someone out there made the earth this convenient to live in. Someone out there made the earth this habitable. Someone out there had a plan. That someone is GOD.
The devil knew that once people became even slightly convinced about the existence of GOD, or at least, once reasonable doubt could be established as to whether or not most of these modern day naturalistic theories were valid, the next question would be, which god was the true god, hence the numerous religions we have in the world today. He’s practically one step ahead of the human race. He does this to mess with people’s minds. He wants you to question your faith. He wants you to doubt your beliefs. Don’t allow your atoms to be abused like that. It’s all a game.
But after all said and done, it all boils down to what you choose to believe, and your faith. I stand by mine ‘cuz well, that’s what makes sense to me, and that’s what I’ve chosen to accept. I don’t know about you, but I don’t buy all that big-bang-inorganic-to-organic-our-forefathers-were-silverbacks-evolutionist crap. But that’s just me.
Aiit, I think this is where I call it a wrap n’ leave you with a closing remark or a maxim or something of the sort. So well, I got this one from a magazine I read some time back, and I thought it was nice.
“Man made the car, GOD made man.”
Aiit people, peace. Be wise.
But wait, before I forget, some of you may be wondering why I titled this piece, ” The Cappuccino Lounge”, while the rest of you probably don’t even give a sh*t. Well too bad, I cater to the minority… The cappuccino lounge is basically a place where questions are asked and answers are given. That’s just what it is…simple.
Aiit people, be well. Watch out for the next installment.
