I Sing the Mighty Power of God

Thinking about the “Expelled” movie I saw tonight, I was inspired in the car on the way home listening to a beautiful hymn declaring how wondrously the Creation testifies to the glory of the Creator.

Psalm 19:1 states, “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.”

Here are the lyrics of this great hymn.

I Sing the Mighty Power of God

Words: Isaac Watts, Divine and Moral Songs for Children, 1715.

I sing the mighty power of God, that made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad, and built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained the sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at God’s command, and all the stars obey.

I sing the goodness of the Lord, who filled the earth with food,
Who formed the creatures through the Word, and then pronounced them good.
Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed, where’er I turn my eye,
If I survey the ground I tread, or gaze upon the sky.

There’s not a plant or flower below, but makes Thy glories known,
And clouds arise, and tempests blow, by order from Thy throne;
While all that borrows life from Thee is ever in Thy care;
And everywhere that we can be, Thou, God art present there.

“Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” exposes hypocrisy of the intellectual tyrants and dictators of evolutionary dogma…

This evening I went to see the much-maligned but excellent film “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed” by Ben Stein, exposing the hypocrisy of the intellectual tyrants and dictators of evolutionary dogma. The film is ridiculed, maligned, and insulted, that is, by some evolutionists and atheists (if you go to their blog sites) and by some mainstream film critics – which is a good sign that it is on mark and making some people uncomfortable by exposing their hypocrisy as well as the lunacy of evolutionary belief. As the head of the Discovery Institute says in the film, they are merely pointing out “the emperor has no clothes.”

I am a big fan of “Looney Toons” cartoons, and evolutionists’ dogma is not much better. They are positively “looney” in their hurling of insults, vitriolic bitumen, toxic waste spewing from the polluting factories of their minds, which is the only tactic they seem to be able to employ since they are so miserable at answering the hard questions by those who are skeptical of evolutionary dogma.

One advocate of Intelligent Design said it well in the movie, something to the effect of “Hard questions not well-answered have a way of not going away” – which is to say the ID voice – and the debate – is not going away any time soon, and especially as increasing numbers of scientists decide to escape, at great risk of harm, the uncomfortable confines of the damp and dreary intellectual gulags.

Why do some evolutionists want to stifle the free speech and intellectual freedom of those who question the orthodoxy? I would say they are running scared. And in my opinion well they should.

One other note. One of the evolutionists in the film mentioned the deplorable state of science education in America, but it seems to me that it is those secular humanist foxes that have been guarding that henhouse the last 50 years – a telling admission of the failure of their approach. I think the presenting of ID or Creationism as an alternative to evolution will elevate the teaching of science and will help us regain some of that lost ground.
