Romans 1:18-21 "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened."
“The word atheism introduces a problem for the atheist. The word atheist comes from the Greek roots a + Theos is a negative, a reactive term. It means to be, “without God.” But if there is no God, then atheism cannot exist – it has nothing to negate. To be without Something is to be without anything. Atheism’s only alternative is Nothing. But if Something, God, does not exist, then it must be Nothing that exists. But Nothing by definition cannot exist, and thus, we cannot exist. But here we are, pondering it all. Thus, if Something is really Nothing, then atheism means, “without nothing.” But then, to be without Nothing is both redundant and non-existent on the one hand, yet on the other, it is a double negative. In quantitative reasoning a double negative equals a positive, and thus God must exist.” -By John Rankin
“As a scientist, I am qualified to assert the fact that evolution is not an empirical science. It cannot be proven by explanation, it cannot be demonstrated by observation, and it cannot be tested, and it cannot be verified. It is unproven and unprovable. The transmutation of one district species into another distinct species has never been observed and never will be because man cannot live a million years attempting to verify it. It is impossible to observe! Therefore, evolution cannot be classified as a theory, because by definition a theory must be testable. It is but a speculative philosophy, a projection back in time. It is a wishful extrapolation outside the realm of experimentation. But more to the point, it is an attempt to reconstruct history in order to do away with God.” - Dr. Paul Nelson
