Naturalistic Thinking makes Reality “Thoroughly Puzzling for Scientists”

by / October 27, 2015

A while back I wrote about how Evolution is Full of Surprises but they still rely on it to explain anything the world throws at them.

Today I read an article that cracked me up because it was so full of this kind of thinking:

Space.com: Pluto Is Beautiful, Complex and Thoroughly Puzzling for Scientists October 15, 2015

Let’s have a look at some quotes (of course, that title is just perfect):

“The first-ever flyby of Pluto may have raised more questions than it answered.”

“…discovered a staggering diversity of terrain…”

“…divided into mysterious “cells”…”

These last two are comments all scientists can share. God’s creation is staggering and mysterious. His ability to create reaches far beyond our ability to understand!

“’Making sense of all the new information — that is, getting a relatively complete understanding of the evolution of Pluto and its five moons — is going to take some time… It’s really complicated,’ Stern told Space.com. ‘This is going to be a very tough story to unravel.’”

This gets to the heart of why Pluto is so puzzling for these scientists. We can rejoice in the opportunity to explore more of God’s amazing variety. They have to try to fit this into their humanly constructed, godless paradigm.

“’Finding that Pluto is geologically active after 4.5 billion years — there’s not big enough typeface to write that in,’ Stern said. ‘It’s unbelievable.’ How such bright surfaces can be maintained on Nix and Hydra over billions of years is puzzling,…”

Take out the billions of years and there isn’t anything at all unbelievable or puzzling about this bit of reality!

Here’s the deal:

Many scientists and other people today have staked their souls on the power of human reasoning to unravel all the mysteries of the universe. ‘If we just sprinkle enough magic time dust on any question, it becomes easy to answer.’ Or, that’s what they choose to believe.

But the truth is quite different. God doesn’t let us in on everything he does. He loves to show us what he’s been doing, but we will never reach a full understanding. Every day gives us new examples of God’s handiwork and there are always new areas for scientists to research. We will never get to the point where humanity holds all the answers.

God wants us to hold on to him and his Testimony above all.

Romans 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

Psalm 25:14 The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

Psalm 111:2 The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
