Methodist Bill Endorses Evolution

 

A bill (80050) submitted by  Al C. Kuelling from  Ft. Wayne, Indiana on the subject of the Bible and Science. According to the reasoning of this bill, it's suppose to clear up what it considers confusion in the Methodist assembly between creationism, and science. It states; "We affirm the validity of the claims of science in describing the natural world and in determining what is scientific." Of course we know in the majority of the science world, naturalism rules with an iron fist. The bill goes on to say, science doesn't have the right to determine theological issues. Oh really, the evolutionist viewpoint states that naturalism was responsible for creating the Heavens and the Earth out of nothing, and the Bible clearly points out, it was God. Intelligent design makes no distinction other than saying it was an "intelligent agent". 

 

The bill continues to make this claim; "We find that science’s descriptions of cosmological, geological, and biological evolution are not in conflict with theology."  Meaning the Bible and Evolution are actually in agreement with each other (which is not true) and the final authority is neo-Darwinism when it comes to creation in a public school. The bill has some atheist groups excited as they try to protect their brand of science and government money as well.

 

"Science and theology are complementary rather than mutually incompatible." This statement is generally accepted in creationism and intelligent design circles, but not in secular science as they believe it's not possible for science to agree with religion. This endorsement of Evolution is similar to that of the Vatican's some years ago, where the Pontifical Council for Culture, said the Genesis description of how God created the universe and Darwin's theory of evolution were "perfectly compatible" if the Bible were read correctly.  The Vatican endorsement went out to attack fundamentalists...It's just more confusion among religions who reject the authority of the Bible. Telling it's followers neo-Darwinism is compatible with Scripture while saying "the universe didn't make itself and had a creator" is very misleading to say the least. The two system of beliefs are obviously oppose to one another.  It's a fact for believers in the Lord, God did create all things for Himself. 

 

Sadly, this bill has passed on a 62-0 vote according to the Methodist legislation tracker on 4/25/2008 8:13 PM.  Also there were two other bills which were off shoots of this one...Bill number 80839, which deals with the Methodist organization supporting "separation from church and state" as a means of keeping out critical thinking of evolution in the public schools. The type of critical thinking that may lead to an intelligent designer conclusion rather than naturalism. The other bill (80990) supports the "reconciliatory programs between religion and science, and urges United Methodist clergy participation" which is mainly environmental issues. The Methodist legislation makes no sense, it's not Biblical, nor is it compatible with atheistic science.
