Satan is a Jerk

The newest book I've started--I'm actually listening to it on CD, which I've never done before, but it makes car trips pass quickly--is Lee Strobel's The Case for a Creator. I listened to the first couple of hours last night on my way home from Cincinnati.

Strobel starts out by explaining how learning about evolution as a young student led him toward atheism. He studied biology and was taught that evolution was fact--and thus, obviously, God was out of a job. The Case for a Creator documents his journey of learning how wrong all those "facts" were: he interviews dozens of respected, doctorate-level scientists in every field who systematically expose evolution for what it is...a ridiculous theory that has no evidence to back it up.

The first interview was about "images of evolution"--four pictures/experiments/examples that served as "proofs" for evolution and really swayed Strobel when he was first learning about evolution. But the scientist he interviews totally dismantles each one, showing how they're misleading at best, or downright false at worst. As I listened, part of me wanted to laugh at how preposterous the whole thing is. But most of me just got angry at how Satan has totally blinded so many much of the world mindlessly accepts evolution as proven fact and labels Christians as ignorant buffoons...not realizing that the arrow of modern science CLEARLY points toward intelligent design. All these people being totally deceived, and like Strobel, led away from faith and toward atheism...when really, believing in evolution takes a whole lot more faith...

Ooh, Satan is such a jerk...I can't wait til he gets what's coming to him.
