    For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

    Why try? You can't prove "meaning without meaning" without invoking something you can't prove exists.

    To Jason69,
    the dilemma of some kind of belief in both is answered in the unusual or unexpected method of creation. This method is found in the original chapters, and then in the recaps in Psalms or even as late as the New Testament: God spoke things into existence. I think we are to assume that natural laws as we know them were constantly abridged or trumped.

    For ex., when Christ walks on water in the synoptics, that overrules natural laws, but we also see in the same episode that when he tells the water to be calm, it happens quickly. Any mariner will tell you that it normally takes hours either to build up a wave system or for it to dissipate. Yet here we have a storm surge that has experienced fishermen pleading for their lives one minute, and the next it is calm. He speaks and things change. So a 'naturalized' view of this miracle would also miss the point.

    The dialectic of creation and evolution into a third kind of reality would miss the same point.

    Lewis addressed this in 'Science and Religion' in GOD IN THE DOCK. Uniformitarian mathematics will tell you that 'one coin will be placed in the drawer each day' (in Lewis' analogy) at a regular pace, so that 23 days from now you will have 23 coins. It (U. M.) can never hope to explain disruptions, interruptions, theft, excesses that will happen. For that, you have to find another kind of person to explain things.

    U'ism seeks total control of all data, to avoid the embarrassing reality that the world is actually quite a catastrophic place where lots of disruptive and excessive events have happened. For ex., the current theory on the entire central sedimentary area of Australia is that it formed very quickly, so quickly and powerfully that it 'folded' Ayers rock's subterranean section , which is some 10x the size of the piece showing on the surface, and is unpolished granite (it happened recently).

    Most so called scientific knowledge sits on an assumption.

    What proof is there that a rodent evolved into a giraffe? And if all these animals evolved into 'higher beings' how come the 'lower beings' still exist?

    I know exactly how the heavens and the earth became. Nearly 7,000 years ago.

    But you said "I know exactly..." so your knowledge. Otherwise you don't know. Same way as it is your knowledge that lets you use your computer and internet.

    Don't you understand the concept of a gift. It becomes yours to use and enjoy, but you didn't acquire it by any means of your own.

    So you don't really "know" anything that you get via gift?
