There are two basic classifications for reaching the conclusion that the Biblical worldview is the correct one.
There is the easy path – faith. We are given in our hearts the ability to see the world for what it is. This is the presuppositional apologetics methodology and it is the best way to go. Unfortunately, the veils of deception have made it harder for many people to explore and accept this path, so appealing intellectually leads to the other classification of methodologies to reach a Biblical mindset.
I’ve been torn about writing this article. On one hand, there is the intellectual desire to point out the evidence and expose the fallacies of the evolution mindset, the worldview that has spread in the name of science based upon presuppositions rather than unbiased analysis of the data. On the other hand, there’s the reality that despite the evidence that is very clearly against the theory of evolution, there is still an extremely high chance that people will turn towards a different incorrect worldview.
In other words, debunking evolution is not in itself a path to salvation. There are other delusions at work, more powerful ones that have been growing in strength for centuries. Taking them on one at a time is foolish, but short of writing and publishing a book on the subject, the only way for me to go about doing it is to systematically address them one at a time in these articles and then consolidate them.
In essence, this is the first step towards shining light on the various truths that have been hidden in clear sight.
Most of Berlinski’s perspectives are completely flawed because they are not based upon a Biblical worldview. However, it does make for interesting discussions when the absurdities of evolution can be pointed out.
