Not necessarily in this order, first, my post on politicians and evolution did not bring much of a response. Fine. However, I liked something like what Mat wrote in his comment. I thought that was very good. So what do you think of evolution, Mr. Politician?
Mr. Questioner, I don't think we got here by accident. That's not a good answer for man's existence. Everything has a cause. I see writing in the sand and I don't assume it appeared from waves lapping the seashore, and human beings are more complicated than sand writing. I think it would be horrible if someone were disqualified from office or even hindered, because he believed in the biblical record of creation, don't you? Especially since we find creation in the Declaration of Independence as the origination of our rights as American citizens. Do you want to talk about being endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights? Or do you reject the Declaration?
I'm going to stick with that as my answer for now. I wish politicians prepared themselves to put the media on the defensive.
Second, out of the blue someone named Gary decided it was time for him to foist his atheism on this blog. He wasn't reacting to anything in particular we wrote, but he started leaving comments unrelated to the posts under which he typed them. Gary revealed that he had already invaded a hundred blogs before he arrived at ours.
I marvel at the Bible's having already pegged Gary again and again. He appears in accordance with its own understanding. As he refutes the Bible, he validates it. It's as if he's auditioning for a role in the Bible and wins the part.
Gary did me a service. He gave me some thoughts for future blog posts. I don't fathom the questions he asks, but they're out there, and I want to give the best answer to some of them. He doesn't have a point, but attacks the ocean of evidence for God with a spoon, and I'll examine some of his spoonfuls.
Third, we saw my son Kirk before his first deployment. He's a first lieutenant in the army out of Fort Carson, and we saw him off last week. Pray for his spiritual sustenance and continued obedience to God in difficult circumstances. (Kirk is single and has no life's partner candidates at this time, but we are open to whatever possibilities the Lord has for us, if you think you can be of help there.)
