Creation or Cosmos?
Published : February 9, 2018
Sagan's adulation of the cosmos as eternal and not needing God to create it has influenced our children from kindergarten to college. Even the classic children's book The Berenstain Bears in The Bears’ Nature Guide: A Nature Walk Through Bear Country teaches our children that, "Nature … is all that IS, or WAS, or EVER WILL BE!"
Professor Lawrence Krauss is a theoretical physicist and cosmologist at this author’s alma mater, Arizona State University. He directed the Origins Project and has written the book A Universe from Nothing. In this very popular work on college campuses and with atheists, Krauss teaches that God is irrelevant to the origins of the universe and that our universe or something came from nothing, which is in reality something like particles, empty space, quantum vacuums, multiverses, etc.
Dr. Krauss' book should really be titled A Universe from Something, but Dr. Krauss' clever atheistic agenda has as its ultimate goal the destruction of a belief in “the-somebody” that created the something or the origin of the universe, the heavens and Earth. That somebody is Yahweh-God, the God of Israel, the loving-personal Creator God of the Bible.
Two thousand years ago in Athens, Greece, Apostle Saul-Paul spoke to the philosophers, scholars, and debaters of their day. He proclaimed Jesus as God, the resurrection of the dead, and repentance or the changing of your heart and mind towards God and Yom Yahweh, the day when He will judge the world.
