Naturalism, logic and reality - Creation vs. Evolution
Offensive | Reply
Those arguing against creation may not even be conscious of their most basic presupposition, one which excludes God a priori, namely naturalism/materialism (everything came from matter, there is no supernatural, no prior creative intelligence).2 The following two real-life examples highlight some problems with that assumption:
A young man approached me at a seminar and stated, Well, I still believe in the big bang, and that we arrived here by chance random processes. I dont believe in God. I answered him, Well, then obviously your brain, and your thought processes, are also the product of randomness. So you dont know whether it evolved the right way, or even what right would mean in that context. Young man, you dont know if youre making correct statements or even whether youre asking me the right questions.
The young man looked at me and blurted out, What was that book you recommended? He finally realized that his belief undercut its own foundations such reasoning destroys the very basis for reason.
Here's a good article about it:
