Evolution’s Dry Yearning

If evolution is true, then the thirst of our hearts can never be truly quenched.

If you are a normal person you no doubt have experienced the yearning of the heart, the thirst of the soul, and the desire of the mind for significance.

Where does this yearning, thirst, and desire come from? And how can it be fulfilled, quenched, or achieved?

Well, there is good news and bad news.

First the bad news. If evolution is true, you do not have a heart, you do not have a soul, and you have no true mind from which to find significance.

In a materialistic worldview for which evolution is the creation story there is nothing in nature that is not solely physical matter, atoms in motion from the Big Bang like helpless billiard balls careening about the universe in paths immutably predetermined from the instance of the Big Break.

This means that if evolution is true, you do not have a heart in the sense of an immaterial part of you that has true longings that can be satisfied. You also do not have a soul; an immaterial soul is impossible if evolution is true. And your mind? Well, it is merely the chimerical result of billiard balls bouncing about in the physical part of you called your brain.

No true heart, no true soul, and no true mind that can be relied on for useful steps toward true significance. That is who you are, if evolution is true.

But why, then, do we all have yearnings, thirsts, and desires? Can one take one of this and two of that from the periodic table of elements to concoct a yearning? Can one assemble just the right combination of atoms to build a thirst? And how much earth, wind, and fire does it take to make a desire?

Now the good news. Evolution as an explanation for the origin of human beings is a lie. And the better news is that you long thought it was a lie precisely because you know you do have a heart, you suspect you do have a soul, and you are quite sure you do have a mind. To be told by evolutionists that your heart, soul, and mind are mere fictions, bare notional results of atoms bouncing around inside you is both insulting and offensive.

It’s time to gracefully and respectfully push back on the high priesthood of atheists and materialists that insist we must unquestionably believe in evolution. Because using your heart, your soul, and your mind you have long suspected that there must more to life than mere existence as walking flesh sacks.

And there is. Why do not more people know and take comfort in this?

Jesus once stood and proclaimed in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” Do these words, as mysterious or confusing as they may at first seem, not stir within your human heart a sense of the fulfillment of your soul’s thirst? Does it not ring true to a sense of the solution to your heart’s yearning? And might there be in these words the seeds of significance for your mind’s enjoyment?

Yes, and more. Jesus further taught each of us to love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, (and strength). His statement can only be meaningful if you have an immaterial heart, an immaterial soul, and an immaterial mind.

But now as then there are those who have reason to suppress the truth of our immortal, immaterial existence on earth. In Jesus’ day it was the chief priests and Pharisees who wished to protect their hegemony over spiritual teachings. Today there is a priesthood of atheists and materialists who wish to protect their hegemony over scientific teachings.

When the chief priests and Pharisees were asked of Jesus’ statements above, they took comfort that none of “the rulers or of the Pharisees believed him.” But they were alarmed that “the mob that knows nothing of the law” did.

Trust your instincts. Follow your gut on this one. Be a part of the mob.

Think about it.

Notice: On February 2, 2022 we will post the first of our easy to follow reasons why evolution fails as an explanation for human beings.

Some comments to posts on this page have stated things like “evolution is demonstrably true” and other common sentiments among evolution believers. Evolution may be “demonstrably true” to show changes in existing populations of organisms, such as moths and finches.

But is evolution demonstrably true to explain the origin and existence of human beings from a supposed first life form? Evolutionists who are atheists, agnostics, materialists, and the like will always believe evolution is “true” for all of life because they have no other choice but to believe.

But true Believers in a living God need not be so thought-constrained. We will show soon reasons that make clear it is not reasonable to believe evolution as an explanation for human beings. And, of course, we welcome the true believers of evolution to show where we are wrong in our analysis.

Stay tuned!
