What in the Bible could possibly be threatening to liberals when the Sacred Text has everything to do with our belief in human dignity and freedom? Genesis 1:1 and 1:31 present the fact that man is a marvelous creation. Albert Einstein rejected the Big Bang Theory as an explanation for the source for life and agreed instead with the supernatural aspect of creation. He had a positive answer for the question “why is there something rather than nothing?” Einstein declared, “I cannot believe that God plays dice with the Cosmos,” (Francis A. Schaeffer, How Should We Then Live? Crossway Books, 1976, P 138).
Einstein was not a Christian, but a humble scientist who understood there had to be an all-wise Creator. What the father of lies and his Genesis 3:4-5 comrades fail to appreciate is that knowledge beyond the comprehension of man is available directly from their God-given consciences, the Bible and history.
Historically, avoiding tyranny of the mind and human deprivation imposed by the enemies of God-given human rights has been the goal of immigrants, world over. The American Bill of [citizen] Rights reads clearly and one of the results was that immigrants by the millions endorsed the American Pledge of Allegiance, “…one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
The superiority of the Ten Commandments-based Common Law is validated directly by man’s conscience provided at birth by God. “For the first [now over 395 years] of this country’s history, religion and education were intimate and interdependent. Religious competition does stir controversy, but religious freedom enriches rather than impoverishes public policy and the education process” (Edward Scott Gaustad, A Religious History of America, Harper and Row, 1966, P 372. Gaustad was a professor of history at the University of California, Riverside).
Indeed. What could unbelieving scientists possibly be afraid of? Interesting note: The Best of British Bible and Science Conference was held May 5-6, 2017, at the Creation Museum, Petersburg, Kentucky. This is a great opportunity for parents, students, teachers and… honest seekers. Purchase the bundle: https://answersingenesis.org/store/product/best-british-bible-and-science-conference-dvds/
