Ray Bolin said, “You pick a rock out of a stream bed, and it’s got little chisels and chips in it, an archaeologist would be able to come along and tell you whether that was done with a purpose, intelligently to make an arrowhead or some other stone tool, or whether it’s just the forces of water and rocks acting together. We can tell the difference between something which is intelligently designed and something that is not.” If this is the case, why do you think so many scientists look at design in creation and deny a Creator?

      I think certain scientist deny a Creator because the whole premise of science is being able to test and find evidence. God cannot be tested through an experiment, thus scientist do not accept Him.

      It is a hardening of the heart, pure and simple. Scientists look for evidence to back their assumptions, not evidence to lead to a conclusion. They ignore the evidence that points clearly to a creator. Otherwise, they would have to admit that someone put all of this order together, and that is something many simply refuse to do.

      I think that many scientists look at the design in creation and deny a Creator because they are human. Sinful creatures who, although made by the Creator, can reject the Creator (as we all can).

      I think scientists look at design in creation and deny a Creator because the Bible doesn’t explain everything scientifically. They are used to being able to prove something exists and you cannot physically do that with God.

      Scientists needs to proof everything logically which is contrary to the bible because the Bible doesn’t give them the evidence they way they want so they find difficult to accept a creator and his creation.

      I think scientists like to have a certain type of evidence and “logic.” The Bible can’t give them everything in the way they want it so they find it easier to not accept it. We saw this when the other gentleman said that he used to think that there was no logic to Christianity.

      Scientist want to see a definite answer to their questions. They don’t want to trust anything to faith. They cannot conduct an experiment that completely proves the existence of God and show God’s specific “fingerprint” therefore they want to find their own answers. Also, it is the enemy’s deception that blinds their minds to the truth.

      They are trained to submit evidence that can be explained. They do not consider the inexplicable that requires faith.

      Because they want rock solid proof, something they can touch and see. Isn’t that what science is? They see or touch God which makes its that much easier to deny God’s existence

      Scientists by nature are people who seek to find answers to questions that can be explained. They want and tend to believe in things that they have seen, studied, and know….instead of having faith in the unexplainable. If they claim to believe in an Intelligent Designer, they might fear that their knowledge, and study if valued less.

      Some scientists have come up with the millions of years of evolution to explain how things evolved to what we have today. They would rather believe that than admit creation came about by our Creator. But that still doesn’t explain how the beginning came to be. Something or someone had to create what was in the beginning. Even if the big bang were true, who created the universe to which the big bang happened?

      Scientists are just people. If they recognize that there is a creator they are inherently recognizing their need for a savior. This puts them in a spot that lacks control. So just like any other human would they want to protect themselves by denying a creator.
