All types of books are being written to mock and to try to repudiate Christianity. Some of these books out rightly deny the existence of God and call those who believe in Him deluded and intellectually-deficient!!! These books have, startlingly, become best sellers including the Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown, the God Delusion by Richard Dawkins, the Grand Design by Stephen Hawking and many others. Astonishingly, people like Dawkins go so far as to claim that “the universe we observe has … no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference. … DNA neither knows nor cares. DNA just is. And we dance to its music.” May be Dawkins would like to tell the victims of despicable genocides, persecutions and shootings that the perpetrators were merely dancing to their DNA!!! If we are merely dancing to the tune of our DNA then we have no accountability for our actions and if we have no accountability, we can steal and kill and destroy at will. Such a teaching undermines human rights and mocks the pursuit for justice because justice is only relevant where there is a need to enforce what is right. If we are all dancing to our DNA, Dawkins is also dancing to his DNA; without reason, without knowledge. Such propositions are not only preposterous; they undermine the value of human life. They attempt to repudiate the biblical teaching that human beings bear the Imago Dei, the image of God; endowed with a free will and the ability to make their own choices, and be responsible for the consequences. Geneticists teach that the environment and genetics have the potential to influence choices. Nevertheless, genetics do not have the ability to coerce us into making those choices. Our genetic makeup is not our destiny.
On another astonishing note, Stephen Hawking promulgates that “God did not create the universe…there is no place for God in theories on the creation of the universe…”Stephen Hawking finds it easier to believe in the Big Bang than in the creation account. One of the reasons why he and many others reject creation is due to lack of so-called empirical evidence in its favor. What is amazing is that there is also no empirical evidence to substantiate the occurrence of the foundation of their faith, the Big Bang.
