Contradiction

Can Darwinism explain both altruism and selfishness with the same evolutionary processes? Dr. Tim Clutton-Brock tries to accomplish the feat without realizing the contradiction.

"from cooperation among meerkats to fratricide among hyena cubs. But can the same evolutionary process explain opposite outcomes?"

"So the author is in a clear conundrum; he either has to justify violent racism, or acknowledge that humans are not mere mammals produced by blind processes of evolution. This contradiction is lost on him"

Thankfully, God's revelation is trustworthy and confirmed by the evidence around us. Since we can trust God about the past, we can trust him with our future.

Where's the Standard?

In the news recently a swimmer at Stanford was accused of sexual assault. The trial confirmed his guilt, and he faces 6 months in prison and three years probation.

But there has been an outcry that his punishment was not severe enough. So, a group of witches has organized a "mass hexing" upon the Stanford swimmer.

Their group curse again him includes impotence, painful gut, and shame.

But I have to ask: From what standard do the witches pass judgement? What is their standard of right and wrong? From where does that standard arise?

The only universal, immaterial, objective standard by which to be able to judge another would have to come from a universal, immaterial, and objective source. The Creator God has revealed himself through his written word and through his incarnation in Jesus. God's standards of immorality have been broken by all of us, and 4giveness is available only through repentance of sins and faith in Jesus' payment through death and resurrection.
