“Dennis, it’s good to see you,” shouted Ghyslain. We shook hands.
“It’s good to see you. I was expecting you back months ago.”
“Yeah, I stayed with my sister, in Rimouski, all winter. I just got back into town Monday. The weather’s been so bad, I haven’t been out.”
“Did you take the bus?”
“No, it’s too expensive; fare would be about a hundred and fifty. My sister drove me to Quebec City, then I took Share-A-Ride. One ride took me to Montreal, the second brought me here. It cost sixty-six bucks; a lot more comfortable too.
“Have you seen Joy?”
“No, she hasn’t been out much. I think I’ve only seen her once since Christmas.
“I see Chuck on the corner. Have you talked to him.?”
“No, I’ll stop by when I leave here.”
“I’m going up to see him. Will you be back here Monday?”

I hope the reader will read this carefully. With atheists postulating science as the default intellectual position, Christians need to know what they are talking about.
Famed mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose, who worked alongside Stephen Hawking for many years on furthering the developing Big Bang theory, has debunked Hawking’s ‘no-God-needed’ theory of the universe as “hardly science” and “not even a theory” on Premier Christian Radio.
Speaking on the station’s weekly faith debate program Unbelievable? on Saturday 25 September, Penrose described Hawking’s new book The Grand Design as “misleading” adding that M-theory, which Hawking claims has made God redundant as a cause of the universe, was “not even a theory” and “hardly science” but instead “a collection of hopes, ideas and aspirations.”
Penrose was in dialogue on the program with Alister McGrath, professor of theology at Kings College London. The two men joined host Justin Brierley to respond to the question of whether Hawking’s new theory had made God redundant as a potential explanation of the origin of the universe.
Criticising M-theory, Penrose said:…

It might surprise many people to learn that science is biblical. The first task given to the first human being, according to the Bible, was the exploration of the science of taxonomy. Taxonomy is the science of defining groups of biological organisms on the basis of shared characteristics and giving them names. The first task God gave Adam was to name animals “And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof,” (Genesis 2:19). God challenged His new human creation to give names to animals using new vocabulary-names that these animals did not have before. Adam had already been endowed with the brain power, the intellectual capacity to accomplish this task. Adam compiled the first verbal encyclopedia with the categories of the animal kingdom. His genius shines through his intellectual ability to spontaneously come up with names to give each animal. The animals could not name themselves. They did not have the capacity to do so. A human being gave names to animals not vice versa. This demonstrates the major gulf that separates the animal kingdom from human beings, contrary to the popular belief that we all evolved from some primordial soup into amoebas and lizards and other lower animals before finally becoming human beings. What is even more astounding is the fact that Adam did not only have to come up with a name for each animal that passed before him, but he also had to remember the name he had given it. Why else would he name animals if he could not pass their names to his posterity? From this first task human beings later developed an uncanny interest in categorizing plants as well as animals. Now we have the disciplines of botany and zoology. Language is a system of communication that separate human beings from animals. No animal is able to create an alphabet and string letters together to draw semiotics, both in written format and oral format. Adam talked with God. Whatever he named the animals God implicitly acquiesced!!! Can you imagine that?

One of the men lying there had been sick for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him and knew he had been ill for a long time, he asked him, “Would you like to get well?” “I can’t, sir,” the sick man said, “for I have no one to put me into the pool when the water bubbles up. Someone else always gets there ahead of me.” (John 5:5-7)
Relate: I was reading a few months back where a woman was browsing in a small country store where she came across a small wall picture that asked a question that stuck with her. If you knew that you would not fail, what would you attempt? That question didn’t just stick with her, it stuck with me. For days that question bounced around inside my head. It stirred up a…
