Lies from the Vatican against the Creator
In the beginning God spoke the creation into existence, but the Vatican, speaking against the Word of God, has habitually asserted that we evolved from a rock billions of years ago with god's help. Now, just 10 days after the conclusion of the Dover intelligent design trial, here comes their chief astronomer, George Coyne, declaring that the teaching of intelligent design alongside evolution would be "wrong". His comments, of course, just in time before a judge's decision in the Dover case.
"Intelligent design isn't science even though it pretends to be," stated Coyne, who is the Jesuit director of the Vatican Observatory. The observatory is one of the oldest astronomical research institutions in the world, and is based in the papal summer residence at Castel Gandolfo south of Rome. "If you want to teach it in schools, intelligent design should be taught when religion or cultural history is taught, not science," he continued.
According to the American Dictionary of the English Language, the word science is defined as having "knowledge, or certain knowledge; the comprehension or understanding of truth or facts by the mind."
The Scripture teaches: "Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them." (Romans 1:19) This verse refers to the conscience, which means "with knowledge".
In reality, it is Mr. Coyne who is not speaking scientifically, but is "speaking lies in hypocrisy" because his conscience was "seared with a hot iron". (1 Timothy 4:2)
In an article published in the June edition of The Tablet, a British Catholic magazine, Coyne affirmed his antiscriptural, evolutionary beliefs by writing: "If they respect the results of modern science, and indeed the best of modern biblical research, religious believers must move away from the notion of a dictator God or a designer God, a Newtonian God who made the universe as a watch that ticks along regularly."
"God in his infinite freedom continuously creates a world that reflects that freedom at all levels of the evolutionary process to greater and greater complexity," he wrote. "He is not continually intervening, but rather allows, participates, loves," Coyne concluded.
Should children be put on government buses and sent to indoctrination chambers? Of course not. Should we pay heed to any word from the Vatican? Certainly not. But, we must reach the indoctrinated, and if a door be opened, let us walk in with the truth, opposing the enemy's message, whether it be secular in nature or masqueraded as gospel.
"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." (Genesis 1:1)
