“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.” (Ephesians 2:2)
“The beginning of the pride of man, is to fall off from God.” (Ecclesiasticus 10:14)
Man’s quest for knowledge has been insatiable, which is the reason why he has fallen from God’s grace and out of Eden. We never actually learned from this valuable mistake, as we are still incessantly looking for answers – answers that never really point to the truth.
And what is the TRUTH? The truth that man was not created at will by God? That man was created by mere accident, a mere nucleus that evolved for millions of years because of the drastic changes in the environment? That man is not a superior specie because there is reasonable evidence to show that there is intelligent life outside Earth? Would God purposely allow man to be humiliated by this discovery?
In an article which came out in Yahoo entitled “Will Science Someday Rule Out the Possibility of God?”
(http://news.yahoo.com/science-someday-rule-possibility-god-115945479.html), the whole premise of the topic surmised that science has progressed to such an enormous degree that the “supernatural influence” of God and His powers has become greatly diminished. What this statement says is that, in a nutshell, almost anything supernatural nowadays can be logically explained by science. Creation of the world? Big Bang Theory. Aurora borealis in the sky? Solar flares. Cancer? Too much sugar, too much fat, too much everything. Weather disturbances? Global Warming. Is there anything else that science cannot sufficiently EXPLAIN?
Nothing can be farther from the truth. The Bible says that: “Inquire carefully and diligently, the truth of the thing by looking well into it, and if thou find that which is said to be certain, and that this abomination hath been really committed” (Deuteronomy 13;14). Where does all this insatiability leading us? Completely NOWHERE!
Christians, especially Catholics, should never be persuaded by this assertion! I may never have the right mind or sufficient answer to explain why there are dinosaur bones that have been unearthed, or that pre-historic remains of the Neanderthal Man have been found similar to the homo sapiens. I only know that there are things that are better left to the divine to understand, and that Science should seek only to MARVEL at the creation of God, not to PARALLEL or OVERSHADOW it. As Catholics, we should be wary of assertions that seek to corrupt our beliefs. Yes, we should know these assertions to keep an informed choice lest we be misconstrued of being ignorant and foolish. For the young and the uninformed however, it is our duty as Catholics to explain and enlighten people about the truth.
And the truth is: by seeking the truth through reason and logic, you rule out the SOURCE of all truth.
