fulsome and  proclamatory words from a particular group of certain scientists



Design is the fact verified and validated; creation is the only presentation verified and biblical creation is the one best verified, most extensively. Things do not, in kind, grow into each other, but maintain a distance. In this chapter, some of the facts showing this are brought together, with references to reach far more.

It is time to be practical, factual and actual.





Amongst the most bizarre events on earth, the most atrocious, outrageous and outré is this: that some people*1A, nursing their numbers like an army of locusts given minds, are actually claiming that DESIGN in life is not a SCIENTIFIC view.

Nothing could be further from the truth, which is that design in life is the ONLY scientifically permissible view, in terms of scientific method. It is scandalous that the matter should be so circumvented, but how else would the scripture be fulfilled, or how better, than in this, that they will give loyalty to myths (II Timothy 4:3-4)!

The translation 'myths' is of great interest. Thayer's dictionary makes the Greek term, nearly identical with the English, to refer in the most general pejorative sense, to 'an invention, a falsehood', and it is seen as often associated with stories. The Amplified New Testament has the pejorative sense 'myths and man-made stories'. This can move swiftly into the philosophies of motions in the field of deity and demi-urges or into that of naturalism, depending on the taste and degree of impudence of those who speak with airy carelessness of things they do not understand (II Peter 2:10).

What however are some of these stories ? Let us be precise from Peter, for there in II Peter 3 we find two cases. One is the denial of the scriptural place of the FLOOD, and the other is the denial of the reality of the God of Creation, in such a way that although He may be acknowledged, yet the 'very idea' of His coming back to this earth is removed like lice from the hair of the so-very-holy arbiters of custom and fashion in the cultural clutches of man. The theological thing is to become a name, while the paths of 'nature' are to pre-occupy the wholly unholy and self-assertive ramblings of that ruin still called man, in the end of the Age (II Peter 2:1-3,17, 3:1-5). This is well illustrated for Victoria in Lead Us not into Educational Temptation, and for South Australia in TMR Ch. 8.

ONE of these stories which makes any god they are willing to tolerate to have to wear Nature like an iron mask, is that of organic evolution, a story if ever there was one, a tale with endless revisions since it runs into endless facts before which it refuses to yield, until its besotted cultural engineering makes it a very chameleon of philosophy.

Now it is Darwin and making wonders by killing off the least (a very ingenious way - imagine doing that with thoughts, you could become a veritable Einstein merely by removing errors, with no slightest need to actually ENVISAGE anything at all). This is the essence of the error, for the strife to remove weakness, which of course injures hearts and souls as well as bodies, and brings out ruthless evils in mankind, has NOTHING to do with the brilliance and artifice required in invention as in life forms. In any normal definitional usage,  this is termed 'design'*1 :


that assimilation of numerous complexities into integrality,


that solution to numerous procedural problems
with ingenuity of mode not to be found per se in the constituent materials,


that subsumption of multiplied processes to ordered,
salient and sequentially sustained results,
whether for comprehension as in art, or action as in engineering,
with overall meaning for a stateable whole.


Let us however return to our non-design chameleon of play on the part of those who wish to alter  the definition of terms, or do so without realising it.

Placing this predicted phase in conjunction with Romans 1:17ff., which details the syndrome of worshipping the creation rather than the Creator, and so inheriting foolish thoughts, while imagining oneself to be wise, one finds what we have. The syndrome in biblical analysis is the situation in this advanced stage of historical fact, right down to the haughty demeanour and the sexual perversion on the grand scale! This too is testable evidence, for any non-occlusive use of scientific method. What explains most with least difficulty and most verification is on track! This is it.

Creation-concentration in the field of ultimate reality, starting, and having finished stopping, this is the testimony of design. It is also the testimony of the Bible.

With this creation, however, to be realistic in assessment on all sides, as is fitting for any model, there is design-desecration, making it a byproduct and a potentially removable mess. As to the desecration of design, achieved with sonorous mouths by ignoring the reality of design, this is not even ingenious; for what mess being removed from a courtyard, makes it. It has as little to offer progress as does any other regress.

Going back to the creation aspect, in parallel with this mismanagement  facet: what error, being removed from a paper, makes it brilliant, and what fault being removed from an invention, gives it status as profound and wonderful! It is what it IS other than that, which matters. Removing a few wrong notes from some musical score hardly makes Smith into Beethoven!

This simple circumstance being lost on the organic evolutionist, he bravely continues his surge from nothing to the profundity of the precise and mathematically induced arena of matter, and from this to the immensity of the logical analytical powers of mind, and from this to the grandeur of the will, in itself wonderful, despite the hideous misuses of it, available to it when misused, data which are so conspicuous that we even now learn of someone blowing up a mansion rather than sell it for a divorce settlement. Now to be sure, the removal of any errors in any such structure as that mansion, might thus be achieved; but the structure, so far from being invented by this powerful collocation of matter, and matters, is in this way destroyed.

Force without creativity is the enemy of order.

Order without wisdom is the pathway of fools. You need for design what is always found in it, what makes it attractive: discrimination, discernment, knowledge and knowledgeability concerning potential for manipulation of lesser things for the grander purpose in mind, imagination to erect what was not, but now is, for a plan which may be foolish or gracious, but which is intelligently conceived and carefully crafted. WHERE such things are attested, whether in Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, or in a Boeing 747, be they practical in intention or aesthetic, whether architectural in form, or mysterious and evocative of thought, so that one probes for the purpose and finding it, smiles ... then there is design, and the designations of the designer are to be found, and used for instruction *1.

From the excursion found in *1 above, the criteria of design are to be seen, both in general and in the particular case of life, which is one application of an intense and programmatic kind, linked with the most unprogrammatic of all known events at the visible level, the will of man. This however is immersed in the techniques of logic, the methods which science merely forms and formulates at the disquisitive side of reason, in the propositions of purpose and the adventures of imagination, both personal and physical, spiritual and moral (cf. News 19).

In all these cases, despite the 'witless' ways of the insane, and the insane seeming moments are many in those who are sane, there is the character, as in any other design, of the thing.  This is to be seen amidst its failures, where design does not fully cover the case, or in the case of man, where will discovers what is unsuitable for the design. There you have this fascinating dipole: the organised and designated structure and the volitional capacity to evacuate from this sort of intensive and correlated order, into realms of fancy, often deliberately chosen because they become a phase for fascination and a ground for discovery, or even an outlet for boredom, frustration or zest.

Even that, however, requires as in all functionalities of multiple parts with integral function subordinated to a totality with its own features and ways, as in man, a certain reality. It is the construction of the facilities to enable it!

You most emphatically do not just 'get' because it 'arises' - that airy-fairy nonsense which some love to import into science, like rats from a foreign land in a ship's cargo - the liberty which is here involved. It is not mere chance, for it is filled with purpose; it is not mere break-down, for it is an exercise of understanding. It is WILL, and this involves the whole domain of perspective, self-evaluation and ambition, which in turn involves orientation and construction of mind. So far from being evidence of the non-purposive, it is an eminent example of it. That one might not approve of its use, is no more relevant than an endeavour to construe the wisdom of the wild driver who seeks to escape the police. The SYSTEMS he employs to do it, and the WILL he uses to try it, these are not found by omissions or errors. Without them, he could not make the effort.

Into this profundity of complexity, man, then comes this simplicity which is a part of many of the grandest designs, and a criterion of excellence for any design. You have the over-arching capacities based on almost unbelievable complexities of physical, organic, molecular systems, each subordinated to the other, and set in a milieu of mind with its own system of reason and spirit with its own capacities of formulation and purpose, so that if this were not a design, the term would have to go on permanent vacation. It has complexity in unity, many phases in successive deployment, elevating themselves to higher and higher modes of co-ordination, all phased into correspondence and co-operation, with a unitary language of command in that automated, and a learnable language of desire, in the being who as person, uses from a summit, the whole schema for achievements of purpose.

It is as noted in SMR pp.332Gff., schematically observable as follows.


A PATTERN OF MAN - For Survey and Simple Mnemonics - A Summary Structure (PSC). This is envisaged as a skyscraper, and may be conceived upwards or construed downwards. (See pp. 140-145 supra, and cf. Repent or Perish Ch.7,
Endnote 1, where there is further development on this theme.)



(View as one skyscraper: floors are in general
in order of their management significance, though this may vary.)

1.  Principal (top floor)
2.  spirit
3. perspective
4-6.  personality-imagination-expression (PIE)
7.  principles
8-10.  priorities, penchants, affections (PPA)
11.  purpose and purposes
12-15.  comprehension-analysis-intelligence-mind (CAIM)
16.  proposals
17. corporicity
18.  procedure
19.  principial error
20.  plan
21.  performance error
22.  program
23.  unsuccess
24.  significance
25.  semantics
26.  syntax
27.  signification
28.  symbols
29.  cells (equipped as per 24-28, i.e. the 5 S-Words)
30.  system
31.  sequence
32.  series
33.  singularity
34.  subsistence (ground floor)

Added to these, further functionalities could be noted, such as:


While these extend our sight of the donated territories accorded to man, they can be understood in such terms as: mind, spirit and their intimate inter-relation. Here we see not only worlds within worlds in the construction called man - a multiplicity of cosmoi, but a disparity of components, duly combined and correlated to work as one unit: that is the art and essence of creation  (cf. Repent or Perish Ch. 7).

The splendour of the architecture that creates, together with the wonder of the elements in man, themselves creations - the legally inert substructure, the vitally informed, the alert, the discerning, the comprehending, the volitionally directive, the spiritually profound, soaring inexorably: these in their display and their unison attest and verify at work... the sublimity of divinity.


Now let us look from the top storey down.

At the top, the spirit (q.v.) of man, as active but non-autonomous, and derivative (2), is subsumed beneath its principal (properly God, but it may be opted for or yielded to as the devil, self, self-sufficiency, self-satisfaction, self-fulfilment, ideological activism, existential angst...), whatever it may be (1); just as perspective (3), in turn, is set below spirit.

Then is seen the personality as functional upon this, with its principles, priorities and purpose, all functions of it, proceeding in turn to utilise the whole realm of the mental and engaging the physical, with all the errors which in practice may divorce purpose from results.

The structure in its course then moves through the purely programmed to the anatomy of matter and the singularities of what subsists (ground floor). As to the principal, on top, this may be subjective, merely existential; or the upward gateway to reality.

The control room is in the top floor; and the merely existential per se lacks what life requires. The reality incomparably and immovably attested, is the Lord Jesus Christ who, the only begotten Son of God, the Word of God, achieved the building and offers to restore the mismanaged to the designed holiness: at cost to Him, by sacrifice once made, and power, epochally shown in His bodily resurrection. This restoration comes through personal faith and repentance, including His actual top-level reception, where He belongs; and His free acceptance of the purpose-deflections and other errors, sins at any level, unburdened to Him and His waste management.


No design ever made by man comes near to this facility and felicity, complexity and multi-phase diversity from program to person, from structure to function, from multi-phase subordinations to multi-purpose authority: either in the abundance of living parts, susceptible to procreation, or in the sheer splendour of mind, matter and spirit. Man cannot even begin to make spirit, procreation being not a product of his intelligence or power, but of organic structures inbuilt to enable it, as part of the system, thus displaying a power so far transcendent from the mere HAVING of man, that to man is granted the power to make more without even a significant move of understanding! It is all done for him.

Nothing incorporating the features of design (cf. *1) to this extent has ever been seen by the unresurrected eye of man.

In short, we have definitionally*2A an inescapable necessity to admit design in life. We have on the negative side an equally inescapable necessity, if we deign to use scientific method, to recognise that verification of important and available tests of a kind which it authorises, favour one only participant in thought: creation, and not at all, organic evolution. It is not merely that what DESIGN is, requires the admission, but what in the designated universe, HAPPENS that does it.




This is summarised, and should preferably be read in context, in SMR pp. 149ff., as follows.

What we are observing merely makes the unscientific also uproarious.

Making it simple

We see therefore, putting it slightly differently:

Organic evolution fails:

i) to be based on relevant observation (cf. pp. 161, 234, 251-252G infra).

ii) in having no citable law available for normal scientific testing.

iii) in not being verified in terms of prediction from a scientific law.

iv) to provide sound agreement, even in retrodiction.

v) to agree with current observation of what does happen, even in broadest terms.

vi) as contrary in tenor to known scientific law, such as entropy, equally to common sense.

vii) to have the discipline of science, either in past imaginings or present happenings.

viii) more monumentally the more microbiology reveals the human body as the design paragon*1, *2A.

ix) in confronting the intricate patterns of a profound language as a contribution from chaos (the language of life, which is one, in cells) ... Professor Murray Eden relates here.

x) in having two systems (genetic and behavioural-surviving and so on), not systematically related, yet expected to construct what is here (Schützenberger).

Creation Prevails.


i) It does not claim that the process is continuing. In this, it is confirmed by all available means. That is verification.

ii) It is susceptible to disproof ( in its Biblical formulation) by simply showing that the process from which creatures have come in fact is continuing. In this, it is verified, for this is not seen.

iii) It does provide logical ground for the language of life.

iv) It avoids the non-systematic relationship of two systems as a ground.

v) Its clear cut retrodiction is not met with contradiction, and it could have been. This too is verification.

vi) It is in precise accord with known scientific law, such as the second law of thermodynamics; and entropy is another formulation of what the Bible SAYS, ( e.g. Isaiah 51:6), and implies ( Romans 8:20-22 ) in that area of formulation!

vii) The nature of mutation verifies it - variation but not transmutation (kinds).

viii) The numerous evolutionary theories (provided to meet even distant facts) by their disagreement, the one with the other, and by their incredible character - creation arriving incognito as in 'quantum' evolution, or the so-called 'hopeful monster' concept - are in a predictable situation. These unsatisfactory theories show what one would expect: multiplication without solution. This is verification of the creation concept, Biblically invariant. That is, it is unchanging because it is Biblically defined; and because what is Biblically defined, does not need to be confined or refined. It stays in the form, function and rightness given. This case simply verifies that. That is what it had to be; that is what it is.

ix) In the Biblical formulation, this situation is also explained psychologically, and indeed spiritually. There it is declared that man is alienated from the life of God and is systematically dimensionally ignorant (Ephesians 4:18-19). Romans 1 even traces the process. This ability to account for the activity of the evolutionary thrust, personally, is also verification.

x) What contains in its ambit most areas, covers them most categorically and elegantly is deemed the desideratum: this is verification at its acme. In general, the more broadly a presentation covers all known facts, explains all relevant data and the more readily it does so, the more it is deemed to confirm itself.

This excursion into scientific theory and its nature, scientific method and its formulation, and current controversy and its analysis is presented to stimulate you into thought. Culture is not a sufficient condition for thought and acute analysis is always in order. It is what can make certain responses more incisive, sharp, clear and arresting. It helps remove confusion. Further, discoveries can the more readily be made when the cult of the forbidden is not followed. Evidence must be pondered and conclusions subjected to the discipline of reality in such a sphere.

The wrong-headed trend to reject culturally, as at one tertiary institution in this State, at which I taught, because it is not convenient, and not because it is wrong, without indeed giving it due rational interaction with those who present it, is in essence a form of cult. Is not what is culturally dictated in the dereliction of duty towards reason and evidence, a cult ? And in how many universities does one find evidence from Staff or students, of this deplorable cultic phenomenon: creation, or the grand issues of reality are forbidden.

What however is the 'cult of the forbidden' *2 ? It is that cultural negativity, fear or subtlety (depending on motive) whereby certain matters are (ostensibly) ruled in advance of all evidence, 'out of court' - the court of culture. Whether it be deemed to be politics, religion or other field, the result is a mental crimping that too readily becomes downright dishonesty if not, indeed, hypocrisy. Certain things are out of cultural bounds, being inconsistent with desire, ethos, illusion or delusion; irrespective of their truth.

With religion, it may involve the detestable folly of pretending that evidential procedures are irrelevant, and, worse still, that it is illegal to be logical and alert with evidence and reason, lest emotions be roused. This subordinates truth to convenience and not for long may one justifiably expect the continuance of such folly, or of any society where it distinctively rules.

Reality is a dangerous enemy with whom to trifle by such policy and contempt. By this means, irrelevant irrationalities and absurdities - such as is organic evolution in terms of scientific method - may be 'allowed', in that by a mythical oversight, their merely mythical powers are ignored; whereas the more scientifically oriented view of creation is 'excluded' as 'religious'. (Cf. pp. 211-222, 226-234, 330-334 infra.) Christianity with open heart and incisive mind is quite freely availab1e for 'inspection' - and meets any intelligently administered critical test with overwhelming results, that are as unified as they are unique; and it alone systematically meets logical requirements of consistency and rationality (Refer Chapters 1, 3 and 10).


Organic evolution is always, if one may personify, trying to HOPE that things will happen, which verifiably do not, and then saying that it is all so slow that you do not see it go. This is not science but sci-fi. Science is DISCIPLINED by evidence, not DYNAMISED by figments. That which organic evolution provides is the realm of philosophy at its worst, the novel in its prime. It is not the novel, by imagination, however, which we are concerned to depict, but the actual by observation, implication and consideration of the established laws of science as a field for homogeneity.

As noted earlier, of such change:
bullet it has never been seen,
bullet the means for it have never been positively tested and
bullet the equipment to produce it has never been found.

ALL tests fail, for the relevant criterion of advance in integral functionality into more of the same, in novel arenas of kind.

These are

bullet mutually compelling considerations of scientific intra-harmonisation of concept,
as normal in that field; and they
bullet in dynamic unison point to what is not now being done, as having been done,

and this which has been done, as not

bullet in ways currently observable,
bullet or by methods currently available,
bullet or by powers currently deployed. 
bullet Moreover as noted in TMR, and shown by Professor Tom Barnes of El Paso University Texas, the three main laws of science reflect biblical, not evolutionary reality. With slight adaptation for our present purpose, in one formulation, this is as follows.


The simple fact is this: The LAW of CONSERVATION OF MASS AND ENERGY
is exactly in accord with the scientific hypothesis of creation.
and so thirdly is the LAW (2nd) of THERMODYNAMICS.



Of these: ONE states how life is uniquely and exclusively observed at this time,
to come FROM life; another states the situation concerning matter plus energy,
and its stasis - there is a deposit of competency; and the third notes the trend to downgrading of what is already built.


Thus it is THERE, without disclosing from WITHIN ITSELF,
or any components, collection of components or criteria,
HOW it got here. It decreases its specialised specificities,
as is normal with our own designs exposed to general conditions which impact on them;
and life in particular is derivative from LIFE.

This of course is precisely what the Bible said:
The things that are seen are not derived from what is visible (Hebrews 1:1-3);
their trend is to wear out (Isaiah 51:6), and life was achieved in a specific,
distinct creative act, also NOT from within the interstices,
powers and properties of other material things.


It is quite impressive when the three chief laws of physics are derivable
from a Book which has been around in major elements to the point,
for nearly three and one half millenia, without revision, without need for it.

It contrasts with illimitable felicity with modern human science,
which being chained to man, is not to be expected to achieve such eternally valid results, however bright the worker. Such in additional verification is what is found;
for in this field, a theory of yesterday is aged tomorrow,
one of a decade ago can become almost comic, and of 50 years past,
a thing of awe in the arena of the museum pieces of knowledge!

It is indeed quite impressive when the three chief laws of physics are derivable from a Book which has been around in major elements to the point, for nearly three and one half millenia, without revision, without need for it. On the other hand, this is precisely what one would expect from a source which is in fact the Creator of the things that :

1.   are there.

2.   are duly wearing out according to program announced verbally long before, and

3.   incorporate a specific called life which, in our format for it and with the human spirit added, comes only from life as stated at the outset
by what you could almost call, for the sake of impact, the Manufacturer.
His handbook is an astoundingly good one; and at the level
which is appropriate to such a Being.

·  It was Professor Tom Barnes (*4) , as Physics Professor of the University of El Paso Texas who conveniently noted these three laws and emphasised their spiritual relevance, and in particular indicated the confirmation of creationism.

·  Not merely indeed are they harmonisable with it: they are close to RESTATEMENTS OF IT! That then, it is not bad for a start.

Instead of collisions such as the Naturalistic Fallacy has in its evolutionism, which are constantly and indeed increasingly the subject of excruciating self-examination by what are perhaps the more sensitive, as also frequently the most eminent of the secularists: instead of such anguish as 'nature from nature' theoreticians experience in their reflections, now often published, there is in the logical performances of creationism, just the opposite. Here, it all fits into place where logic, experimental fact and the due use of scientific method coincide in a methodological trilogy.


This is the nature of these three major scientific laws, in the realm of design into which we have currently entered for review. They not only are in accord with it, but in accord with the biblical statement in its implications concerning it. In Isaiah 51:6, we have the express statement that the universe is to wear out, to become old and to lose the initial powers as it ages, and is finally discarded, as also the simple fact of its coming removal, as in Matthew 24:35. As to the method of that removal, in II Peter 3, it almost looks like some derivation from the powers released in atomic bombs, to see the nature of the heat and dissolution there described.

The fact that the symbol of destruction in our own Age was foretold by Joel and cited by Peter at Pentecost as a coming event, is scientifically, and empirically, in the same positive and confirmatory field, at the simple level of scientific method, as the rest. There would be, said Joel, a column of vapour amongst the other dire dissolutive dynamics, which would be a major item of this approaching end (Joel 2:30). Peter refers to this in his summary as "blood and fire and vapour of smoke", as a sign of the coming near of the end of the Age and the return of Christ, while Joel has "Blood and fire and pillars of smoke", amongst the wonders to be shown on earth in attestation of the approach of judgment and the terminus of our Age.

No more remarkable, visible symbol of our Age and its self-aggrandising thrusts, no more simply notable item or aspect, for observation purposes is to be found, than the column of vapour, which in a summary reference, is singled out by the prophet for notation!

Further, as to blood, we have a flood of it, and every ideological Tom, Dick and Harry seems fascinated to absurd passionate extremes with its flow:  whether in Cambodia, the Sudan, Kashmir, Israel, Iraq, Iran (recall the little wars and the millions who died, including kids with plastic keys for celestial purposes, it is said), in Russia, China, Tibet, or in Ceylon now with a new name but an old plague, Sri Lanka, yes and Georgia, and not to forget, in that grind stone for blood, Chechnya, while to these the colder flows of blood in Siberia of the last century may be added to the hotter ones in World War II, and the little excursions of Arabs from time to time, to seek to gain the rest of the Palestine, robbed from Israel, much to Jordan, despite the provisions of the League of Nations following World War I.

The blood and the column of vapour, yes, testable, distinctive, epochal the latter in kind, the former in lava-flow type profundity of spill.

As to fire, some may have noticed that this is associated with the atomic bomb, in rather regal ways, along with the vapour of smoke, the column of it predicted.

Thus there is not only the FACT of the CORRELATION of the three major scientific laws with the biblical formulation, which in turn means, of the observable FACTS with that writing, in the field of creation, in addition to its logical requirement (cf. SMR Ch. 1, Ch. 3, Ch. 10, TMR Ch. 1, Repent or Perish Ch. 7); but in the biblical presentation there is further elaborate, testable detail supplied.

Accordingly, SMR Chs.  8 and 9 cover various periods in which this biblical felicity concerning the OTHER works of the Creator may be seen in their stunning multiplicity, while the indexes on prophecy extend it considerably further. All of this is testable, scientifically relevant material in the total investigation of what is biblical creationism, which is not merely a type of it, nor merely a religious phenomenon, but a factually demanding avenue for the explanation of  all things, with verification supplied in complete contrast to the organic evolutionary hypothesis, as void of confirmation on all sides as a frog dynasty that forgot about eggs. 

Thus these additional features in the vast scope of testability in biblical creations are in one sense mere ornament to the foundation re creation, in terms of scientific method; but as with all that is testable, in terms of what in scientific method terminology, is hypothesis, this is relevant. EVERY feature and facet,  every implication and application that is testable between utterly diverse presentations on origins is relevant. The luxury of using illicit and illogical  exclusion means,  as in that death camp for logic,  the cult of the forbidden, cannot be too sharply condemned for its unempirical star-gazing dreaming.

What then ? Starkly, major scientific laws, a basic pattern for thought in its field, CONFIRM ONLY creation, and in the biblical presentation, gain further confirmation, and negate organic evolution which wants life from non-life, stuff to come from somewhere or other in some way or other, never found in principle or practice, and advance rather than deterioration to be the king-pin of the process which brings something out of nothing in the first place, and out of the categorically and ordinally less than itself, in the second,  its rocketing advance.

It is not that castles come from thimbles, in this second case, as in a good fairy story, but from atoms, herded into things unspeakable in intensity, immensity, felicity, aesthetic integrity, symphonic harmony, dynamic systematics and organised mathematical brilliance devastating to all human pride. Fairy stories have the same basis, but are more interesting, since they stir the imagination without insulting the intelligence or defiling reason itself.

In scientific law correlation, in determinate verifications in testable arenas, in coherent and consistent definition, in logical necessity (cf. Ch. 1 above), we find one case confirmed, and in each, the other negated. Creation is that case, and organic evolutionary myth, it is the other. As to the legitimacy of that term in logical application, see  *2 at the site marked, below .

In terms of science, quite apart from all else, there is not only NO CASE for non-design, but EVERY CASE for it.
bullet Yet the pundits who seem to love to have their sheer number noted

(and consider how many would be notable as contrary to impending flood,
in the day of Noah as he painstakingly built the thing seas away),

bullet do not number among their presentations
bullet any reason for them
bullet that can stand for one moment
bullet before the bar of scientific method*3.

Not merely is this so, but the antics of creation (you see it in music, in architecture, in golf course design - a certain exuberance*4A which laughs at the ordinary and INVENTS things) mock the pundits of wearisome and dispirited evolutionism, by the sheer profundity of the artifices employed, the dynamics deployed and the brilliance of ploys opted! Imagine 'trying' to get a submersible suckling for whales for a while, or to have a transition for oxygen assignment from placental blood supply to infant lung aeration in the moment of birth, or the few seconds left after it occurred, or trying to make philosopher insects who, which ... could discern the difference between the extreme art in many floral contributions, to the point that the latter would 'need' (the usual personification ignoring causality) to 'create' themselves in order to be functionally superior!

Consider the definitional realities, and now let us apply them.




Designs on design, how ludicrous!  What insapient sport, to remove it from the scientific picture, by means of, and while using the craniation occurring by courtesy of the most prodigious design*1, *2A  of the brain, in the integral design of the spiritual phase in co-operation with the mental, a threefold coherence with one function, here to utter in sounds physically audible not only to the air but to the mind as meaningful, in terms of a code-conception and conception-purpose program and procedure!

What comedy of errors is this ? that the very nature of the whole and the summation of the parts to its ends, and the correlation of the physical, the mental and the spiritual, the systems abounding for all, the movement from material to meaning, from workings to will, from provisions to purpose, in ascending order of mutual dependence and final direction by the person called man, should then be debased, and endless*4 epistemological, metaphysical, rational realities aborted and left in mid-air, cause-free, consequence fraught: it is a simple contradiction in terms (cf. Causes, SMR Ch. 5, Ch. 3, Predestination and Freewill Section 4) .

It is a chief work of man's turning aside to myths, to 'stories' built on vapour, exempt from reason, ignoring the observable scientific realities of what coheres rationally and what does not, both within himself  and empirically outside with the evidence. It is the  categorically compelling attestation before our very eyes of what Paul predicted for our late-stage phase of the Age.

That, it is merely one more TESTABLE and impactive scientific fact, where the domain of science is to test ALL RELEVANT evidence in ALL fields where alternative possibilities are deemed to exist, in order to see what WORKS and MEETS the tests of reason and the empirical, and what does not.

Evolutionism in no point meets it; creationism in all points meets it; biblical creationism in many more points meets it, and in fact is the most precise and competent, overall effective and testable presentation on origins that exists. Nothing else has so many pluses, no minuses and this before the requirements of pure reason are even applied!

Thus the insistence on not presenting what scientific method has to face
as the most viable of all hypotheses (to use its terminology),
and to discount it as unscientific is perhaps the most unscientific statement ever made.

Whether scientifically, logically, in things immediate or surrounding in the membranes of thought and analysis (cf. SMR, TMR), in construction FROM evidence (TMR Ch. 1), or constriction BY evidence, in test, in rationality and causality, in detail and in spheres alike: design is one of the major features of life on this earth.

One of the other features, as already implied above, is this: that part of that design is the power to err and to desire to err on the part of some at times (as in lies and fraud), and part of the result of misusing the design is the approach of the Designer to that abuse. This has two immediate features. One is dissatisfaction with the blend of impudence, imprudence and callow adventurism involved, for example, and the other is the result within the design itself.

Designs may be robust, and able to 'take it' up to a point; but if you want to use a good razor blade to cut grass, to be sure you may have a measure of success, but it will be very limited; for this is not what it is FOR! Again, if you try to use it to polish stones, there will be further abrasion if not of fingers, then of its critical cutting surface. This would be a pity, for some other implement, designed for such things, would be far better. You could take a bit of some other stone, and even try to sharpen that first, but it is only when you get an exquisite design that you are so placed that you can get that ultimate polished stone surface without blemish. That is what design is like.

The human triad is robust. How it COULD even live for 70 and more years is one of life's most profound wonders. In its plastic-like (but actually carefully designed) skin, with its multiple internal and external provisions for interchange and renewal, linking it with many other systems in the unitary body which is used by the unitary mind to do the unitary purpose in view for the person to whom all this equipment is simultaneously and in its spheres with their mutual co-ordinations assigned, it moves amid vast and explosive events.

These should and sometimes do stir the person, both drawing attention to the need to find the designer of natural things and the maker, the two being immeasurably inter-twined in the features of matter and life, each in its domain, here in tandem (since termination of the physical design can come from one mistake alone); and on the other hand, to find the will of that Maker.

After all, the use made of the human body, mind and spirit is scarcely gracious and kindly from birth, and the considerations used for decisions are not pure from mere selfishness, as if one were a central exhibit in the universe, from the earliest of phases of suppliant life for the infant. When fighting and self-will erupt, whether to be the moral paragon in pride, or the determinant for others, or to please some cult of culture, such as the cult of the forbidden, or one's  dependent and not self-made little self, then of course the case worsens. When the equipment is carried around and made subject of self-congratulation it is no better, as its ultimate meaning is forsaken in terms of mere mental, lassitudinous, lustful, lazy or ambitious constructions and desires emanating from what one is.

It is then small wonder that the Maker as in the Bible stipulates the nature of the disease which man inherits, and it is a great wonder that He stipulates no less, the free way in which it is to be removed, gratis and graciously. Yet it all coheres. Man on the whole prefers his own religious thinking to God's declaration (cf. Isaiah 52:7ff.), which for millenia He has been providing in the Design of His Word, in the Bible, which likewise has many systems and sub-systems, such as soteriology, atonement, reconciliation, redemption, ecclesiology, theology, Christian conduct, prophecy, power, purpose and relationships between God and man and man and man. It is designed to inform, exhort, instruct, warn and deliver man (II Timothy 3:16, Amos 3:7, Isaiah 44:24ff.).

These intrinsic systems and this extrinsic system are matching designs, empirically testable and as seen in prophecy, continually supported as in the realm of creation. The biblical and the biological blend, the one enabled to find, the other willing to give.

All of these testable areas and arenas are to be taken in concert in any approach to scientific method, and quite simply, there is nothing which even is to be seen on the horizon or in the same valley as this, in terms of meeting what is presented, with what happens.


THE HELP of the DESIGNER and the



It is then NOT MERELY design which is in view, but the Designer, and His designs for that design called man; and to be clear, that design which as part of its design includes a spirit. It is this which is NON-PROGRAMMATIC, while using programmatic bases with an agility and facility of interface and dynamic which like the flight of a large bird in the wind, with winsome agility and flight dynamic savvy, delights the eye.

Unfortunately, the antics of man are not always of this aesthetic type, and this present world which includes many trying now to implode with self-importance, now to explode with devastation to others, now smiling in pretended wisdom, now lamenting for its obvious lack, is near to writhing with the victims of follies innumerable.

Many now make a virtual pilgrimage of some style,  in individual social situations to wipe out and bring enduring agony and torture to those with whom they disagree, or from whom they wish to extort something, whether land or submission or money. Some even are doing so in the name of untested and unverified 'religion', the ultimate extortion from distortion, with scant if any regard for nascent anguish to the marred young to whom they spread endless evils to be borne for life, with evident disdain for all consequence. Man in all this is increasingly facing extinction and judgment alike. It is only mercy from the Designer which admits of its existence while the divinely accorded remedy, the good news or Gospel of grace,  is still being presented!

As to that, the design was that it should move throughout all the earth to all nations, and that only then would the end come. That designation has been virtually fulfilled (Matthew 24:12-13), and the designed parameters, which in his disease man would bring and has now brought, they are  also stated. They include as the above scripture depicts, "lawlessness" abounding, and a move towards lovelessness, amidst false prophets, that is, those teaching for their own designs, what is not the design, and so confusing many (cf. Jeremiah 23:14-32, II Peter 2:1ff.).

This is one verifiable feature here par excellence, as is the return of Israel to its land, that once in two millenia event susceptible to no interpretation but this: IT HAS HAPPENED (cf. Luke 21:24, Matthew 24:1ff., SMR Appendix A).

It had to happen; it did happen; long was the delay (cf. II Peter 3:9), precise is the fulfilment, even to the initial taking of ONE HALF of Jerusalem (Zechariah 14:1ff., SMR Ch. 9).

There is another. The above features increasingly become the spiritually malodorous and morally miscreant, the socially blasting and the politically lasting foci of the symptoms of the 21st century world. That Israel, one may add in passing, is increasingly obvious as a "burdensome stone" to those who want to hurl her away or invade and cope with her: this too features as have its amazing wars against a vastly more numerous invasive body, indeed series of such aggravating assailants, who view her with little disguised odium (cf. Zechariah 12, SMR Ch. 9) and her end with little success.

In such ways, the design of history is foretold: but not as if to force man, nor as if to enable man to force, but so that liberty and law, capacity for freedom and overall controls, each matching in the design for events, can have, each one, its designed outcome. Thus man is taught with what folly sin is fraught, and with what pain wisdom may have to act; and the necessity of love, which does not seek its own, but seeks the will of the Father of all.

In particular, man is shown the focussed part for those whose lives have been remedied in the reconciliation in and through the Messiah sent for the operation, Jesus Christ, and the divine splendour of the invitation, freely to all to participate in this, but only in the path prescribed (cf. Matthew 22!), the Gospel of grace. This messianic work, wrought according to, and after the millenia of prediction, had to be and so was filled with the milestones of performance when the Lord of all was present on this earth (cf. Matthew 26:52ff.), Himself without exception obedient to the counsel of eternity on earth. If it is best for sinful man to obey God when on earth, it is no less so for God as man, to conform to the same spiritual magnificence as He has laid down, even to the death (Hebrews 5:7, Philippians 2).

Predictions and their impact in horror and suffering, or blessing and release, in detail or in pattern, these take effect. Man and his will, takes counsel and secures effect (cf. Psalm 2!). Lessons are spread out like a thick carpet of magnificent Autumn leaves, under scarlet oaks; but while the red part of it is similar, the reason for the redness is with man less beautiful.

The world is SHOWN that force and its ferments are NOT the objective of the design, or the parameters of its power. It encourages resentment, vilification, subtlety, cunning, lies and liars, theft, laziness, aspiration instead of inspiration, hatreds, disjunction of the spirit of man from the field of its operation, the abuse of the better by the worse, the loss of sophistication in flattery and a whole host of allied depravities. Now with more power, it is also being shown that this globe has a limited tolerance, just as human nature does, and that there is an end, where those beginnings are played out to the end! The designs of the evil thrust, these conflict with the design both of and for mankind. The design that God made has God's own provision both for use, and deliverance. Abortion is never an apt alternative if you desire birth.

So far from being meaningless, therefore, man has Designer clothes made available (as in Isaiah 61:10), the covering of the Almighty for his vulnerable nakedness before the extreme forces of matter, mind and spirit, which in provoked turbulence erupt before him, like so many geysers of scalding mud, as the ground cracks, its foundations revealed in valleys and declivities of downward dynamic.

This covering is simple in conception, profound in provision and essential for the continuation of life, as distinct from a lingering death in a profusion of confusion, where lies callow contempt for such short-changing of illimitable treasure, as if it were less than two cents worth, and could be traded for nothing. Necessary to life as a membrane for a cell, the covering of divine grace for man is that provided by the death of the Messiah, Jesus Christ (His date unequivocally set at around 30 A.D. and so DEFINED with a DESIGNED clarity cf. Highway of Holiness Ch. 4). Its plan, procedure and purpose is given in Romans 3:23ff., Galatians 1, 3, 5. So crucial is this covering, this atonement, this provision of grace, this pardon through the death of the Messiah, that it is shown in various ways throughout the Bible (as in Zechariah 3, in the new clothes for the high priest, who had to doff his disgusting work clothes, the bridal clothes for the redeemed as in Isaiah 61:10, in symbol in Isaiah 6:4 and personally in Isaiah 32, in Matthew 22’s parable,  and so on).

The living and loving Designer of man, the Creator of life, the provider of spirit to man, has given to man the gift of life in the first place, with its staggering designs and their no less staggering integration into one unit with spirit to use it. He has also given to man the repair-kit, for misuse of the design, and of the spirit, an abuse wrought by ignoring the Creator’s own way for such a profundity of life as man now has.

This repair-kit, the Gospel, like formulae in science, has two aspects. One is the STATEMENT, as in the laws of science. The other is that to which the statement refers, and which makes it a statement of FACT, operable, and functional and worthy of thought or action. The thing the Gospel states is the thing that God has caused to happen, and to be a source of happening, not this time, in creation, but in re-creation. It is like panel-beating but as in life, far more invisible except in results. This is called regeneration, just as the acceptance of pardon is called reconciliation. The GROUND of the pardon is the death of Christ vicariously for man, so that those who receive Him have at once a cover, as provided in Isaiah 4:6 with 32:1-4 and as we have seen above, 61:10.

He also provides for the CALL BY the people who know Him, for His intervention which is not to remove pain or suffering per se and en bloc, but to fulfil the workings of His design, which includes love for the afflicted, and testing for the righteous, as well as the varied use of willing hearts to show to the ungodly, the wonder of His love.

On this, one sees the principle  in Colossians 1:24, as in II Timothy 4:6-8,  where Paul is both willing and drilling in the part of suffering for Christ's sake, the the Gospel be promoted, and people won back from wandering to the will of God and His liberty - II Cor. 5:17. As part of mankind, how would one want to do less; as part of the family of God, how would one not show it, so that others might know it. There is no call to be ghoulish, though many seem to have answered it without being asked.  It is the call of God to man that matters in the field of creation, re-creation according to the first image with its matrix, meaning and function as provided (Colossians 3:10, II Corinthians 5:17-21).

Such calls can change history radically, and are of course like all else, foreknown, and integral to the design for history, which incorporates both these and their results, so that all being known, ANYTHING can be predicted, and yet this, without the slightest beginning of the robotic. This, liberty and knowledge, together with truth and love, constitutes a twin pair of peaks in the summit situation for man, with which he has been blessed, though in many, it is despised for the sake of some passion or lust for the moment, or for a little while. Yet God is not mocked, and those who forsake the living God are a species of the dead. Their lives are unanimated by the spiritual presence for which they are made, and are like atoms torn from a molecule, or spray without its waterfall (cf. Psalm 1:5-6).  

With His people, it is not so. The restoration is to the underlying and created reality, with the springs of water natural, by courtesy of the supernatural, but now renewed in the lives of His people, a profundity of amazing grace together with a taste of design, with delight. It fits.

Indeed, in His presence, by His Spirit, He 'clothes' us with the robe of righteousness and the garment of salvation. Let us examine this further.

This means that we have redemption through His blood (Ephesians 1), and pardon and peace through His sacrifice as in Romans 3. It is PUT ON us, who believe, as a necessary cover from the justice of God, and provision for peace in the midst of the warring nations of mankind, and forces of spiritual evil. It enables us to relate to God as Father once more, and to find and receive the wisdom, not this time for our designs, long since created, but for the personal designs which the Lord has for each of His children. These are twofold.

Firstly, they are those for moral and ethical, spiritual and gracious living. These are for one as for all (cf. Romans 12, I Thessalonians 5, I Corinthians 13). Secondly, there is the precise part in His kingdom which He has for each of His children, and these designs are donated (cf. I Corinthians 12, Acts 13), as the Lord desires. When one finds the spiritual calling, specification, purpose and specialisation (cf. Ephesians 4), then one can seek the wisdom for its exercise, and the love for its atmosphere, and the peace for its provision.

God has many designs, both in structure and in function. Biblically and testably, verifiably and in power, His design for man is for him to repent, be redeemed by the method provided, and to find God as his friend, Saviour and Redeemer, a thing known for millenia and even voiced by Job - as we hear Christmas after Christmas in the Messiah of Handel - in his declaration in the midst of crucial testing, from a vast time before Christ ever came (Job 19). Job KNEW that his Redeemer lived, and declared this even in the midst of the most appalling trials; and was sure that he would find him UPON THE EARTH, in the end time of history, that he would see Him for himself, yes with his own eyes, and yes without intermediary.

That has been a long time coming. The provision for it is now past these two millenia (for as Peter declared in II Peter 3:9, referring to the return of Christ, a day with the Lord is as a thousand years), and the resurrection of the design, the body, empirically is drawing near (Answers to Questions Ch. 5). What is said in heaven and declared on earth in the Book of the Lord, the Bible, in fact always comes, just as it is stipulated. That also, it is part of the design for the deliverance of man. What a privilege to have a designed body, with a designed program and an individual and personal part to play in the concourse of designs called history, where man's liberty plays amid the Lord's laws, and judgment sits increasingly like dark and portentous cloud. This reminds one of the start of World War II, where as a child of 11 years in a farm near Melbourne, one heard in that peace, of the forces coming to war, to maim and kill, to blast and battle, belabour and besiege.

It had been a while coming, as 'war clouds' gathered. It came.

This war has been millenia in extent, and not least of its participants is that devil whose ambition knows no bounds in thought, but very definite bounds in design! It is well that it is so (cf. Revelation 12, 19). He is a very able aid to rebels from the Lord, giving them more scope for the investigation of the exact depths to which sin can lead them.

Now it comes to its end, this spiritual war (cf. Ephesians 6), this also.

It is well to be covered. One would invite all who read to be sure of it, and to remember the parable of Matthew 22:1-14, where someone sought heaven without being 'covered', with no robe of vicarious righteousness, gained from the Messiah: whose purpose was to fulfil the plan of salvation, and become the target, sacrificially, for the sin of man, so that He could pardon in justice, those who sought His mercy.

Do not toy with it, but realise as with all designs, that it is prescribed in order to be DONE (Hebrews 2:13, 6:19).

There follows a short notation from the New York Times, to enable the reader to orient to the material subsequently summarised or selected. At the end of the presentation, it is given further assessment. This News item, although from 2005, has more recently been made fresh by further rumblings about intelligent design not being scientific. In this article from the Times, however, there is a most instructive array of figures cited, whose words give indications relevant to Biblical Christian Apologetics. The report is from the Times article, and depends for accuracy on what is there written.

Bush Remarks Roil Debate on Teaching of Evolution

Published: August 3, 2005
Correction Appended

WASHINGTON, Aug. 2 - A sharp debate between scientists and religious conservatives escalated Tuesday over comments by President Bush that the theory of intelligent design should be taught with evolution in the nation's public schools.

In an interview at the White House on Monday with a group of Texas newspaper reporters, Mr. Bush appeared to endorse the push by many of his conservative Christian supporters to give intelligent design equal treatment with the theory of evolution.

Recalling his days as Texas governor, Mr. Bush said in the interview, according to a transcript, "I felt like both sides ought to be properly taught." Asked again by a reporter whether he believed that both sides in the debate between evolution and intelligent design should be taught in the schools, Mr. Bush replied that he did, "so people can understand what the debate is about."

Review of Some References in the Report


The report proceeds to expose a number of nerve endings in the clash between sci-fi fiction and creationism's standing above all contestants, in terms of scientific method. These are relayed simply to verify the confusion and assertiveness.

We learn from the New York Times, that not long after the words of Mr Bush's  speech were given, conservative Christian supporters showed that they embraced it, while "advocates of the separation of church and state disparaged them."

Bush's science adviser is reported to have declared, presumably from some mysterious knowledge unknown to man,  that "evolution is the cornerstone of modern biology" and "intelligent design is not a scientific concept." He tried to have the matter put into a SOCIAL context for discussion.

The article proceeds to present the view that "intelligent design does not identify the designer". That may be so for some group or other who use the term, but those, like this author, who speak of the CONCEPT most assuredly do so identify. Indeed,  logically it is both possible and necessary to do so, for this is part of the scientifically testable case.

It notes that 'intelligent design" has been gaining support in the school districts of 20 states, with Kansas in the lead. Indeed, conservative supporters of Mr Bush indicated, the report proceeds, to stress that they understood Mr Bush's remarks certainly to indicate that both presentations, evolution and intelligent design, should be given equal support in schools, thus contradicting Mr Marburger..

Indeed, the president of the ethics and religious liberties commission of the Southern Baptist Convention declared that such equal presentation is what he and many others have been seeking for long. Positions should be presented for assessment in schools.

Susan Spath, a spokeswoman for the National Center for Science Education, declared in her slot, that "It's not fair to privilege one religious viewpoint by calling it the other side of evolution." The confusion in this is simple. 'Intelligent design'  as one facet of the matter of creationism, and only one, as presented in this Chapter for its own particular purpose, is certainly not religious in derivation, but logical; and while religion in itself is a field for scientific verification, as shown also in this Chapter, and a valid one, and revelation has its own standing above all (as demonstrated in SMR Ch. 1 et al.), yet everything must be seen in its place.

In this, reason has a place, and in this matter, the use of reason in terms of scientific method endorses intelligent design AND creation, AGAINST organic evolutionism, which has nowhere to find verification or validation alike (cf. TMR Ch. 1, Repent or Perish Ch. 7). In empirical and scientifically relevant fact, it also and further endorses biblical creation. The idea that you have to cease to think when dealing with religion is one of the most invasive and irrational misconceptions which governs much in the injudicious race to exclude God from academia, while including what cannot compete logically.

Thus as to the ploy of making various religions a ground for not presenting various logically reasoned views for consideration for those presumably wanting to learn, instead of becoming a field for the mental aggressions of indoctrinators, as now in so many places: it  is simply spurious. It is a LOGICAL option, and as shown in this Chapter, the ONLY one that can stand in terms of scientific method. On THAT basis there is no competitor even in sight. Yet the propaganda goes on, whether for this purpose or that, and perhaps in many cases because of culturally induced sleep, such as has afflicted both science and politics so often before, over the centuries.

That intelligent design is merely a part of creation as a logical option and indeed requirement is certainly true; but so far from this being a ground for not displaying it, rather does it portend that this is a total alternative, that stands in every phase of the entire conflict, and hence deserves equal treatment, AT LEAST.

An amazing foozle proceeds, when a Rev. Lynn of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, "called the president's comments irresponsible"! declaring that when it comes to evolution, there is only one school of scientific thought, that it is and is still occurring. This stupendous erratum shows the profusion of confusion in this arena. There are in fact so many schools of thought in evolutionism that it is ludicrous when you contemplate them: it is sudden, it is punctuated, it is past, it is now going anywhere, possibly downwards, it is not occurring, it is only variation about a norm, it may occur, it will not occur.

It is like a gabble in a Primary School class, and all these things have been shown and may be verified in such works as SMR, Wake Up World! and the lists included in the appropriate place in the evolution, creation,naturalism  indexes to be found in SEARCH.

As to religion and philosophy being discussed in public school classes, and evolution alone in science, this is anti-scientific, whereas the TYPE of religion which one has found in schools is precisely that relativistic, humanistic set of presumptuous indoctrinations which was exposed in Lead Us Not into Educational Temptation, and there refuted at length.

The (only ?) edifying thing about all these things and reactions is that they display a heap of means by which mankind acts to distance truth, both in biology, and politics and sociology; and these becoming more prominent in discourse as States impel their peoples to one manner or another of compulsion in education, instead of actually teaching in these areas, it is clear that the perimeters for the diabolically desperate, but short-lived regime of the antichrist is so far from being a nebulous future deal, exceedingly close. It is in fact virtually present, and a virtual antichrist is already active, a spirit of antichrist, which uses half truths, untruths, irrelevant arguments and distillates of manipulation to have but ONE RESULT: KEEP the truth from the kids.

The intentions of participants are not the point; these may indeed vary. It is the result in the confusion and the corruption which is in view.

Far is this, therefore, from suggesting that any single one is TRYING to do this. It is just, given the state of the case rationally, empirically, in terms of verification and validity, this is the RESULT. Many may, in time, like Saul of Tarsus, when he became enlightened and was called Paul, regret their immersion in full bodied evolution fluid; but the dynamic has set in, and has almost a comical aspect, as facts are with something close to full scientific precision, CONTRADICTED. Just as evolutionist Harvard Professor Simpson declared the 'gaps' to be systematic, so is this contradiction comically systematic! (cf. SMR pp. 106, 236).These things, they match ...

The extent of precision in that contradiction, however, is scarcely a credible ground for congratulation. It merely illustrates that a perversity such as is shown in its stages in Romans 1:17ff., an irrational unrealism and even surrealism, has now set in; and it is a ready ground, like dead wood for termites, for the destruction of the human race. From this, only the same God who created can save ANY. The days of Noah are an illustration. Christ is the ark (cf. I Peter 3:18-22). It is the ark which is immersed, those on board need at most, face only the sprinklings of the spray!

It is time to realise where things are and where they are heading; and to turn from the Falls to the mountain, that high mountain which is Christ, and to rest in the truth.





From the The Wit and Wisdom of the Word of God, the Bible True to Test Ch. 2,
we present this assemblage on designations of design. Material has been added, and some slight changes are made for the current use.


In addition to the excerpts below, see The gods of naturalism have no go!




                           Designations of Design

 See first, with respect to definition, SMR pp.  211ff., Repent or Perish Ch. 7, throughout but esp. in two locations and their hinterlands, Ch. 2 above, and indexes.

One adds from the 'two locations', first of all, the following:

1) Indeed, the infamous 'wriggle' that 'survival' created it all is as absurd a proposition as ever passed the lips of man. Does good driving (or 'better') of a Volkswagen create a Rolls Royce, even in stages? Does non-death mean imaginative re-coding? Does creation consists in endurance? Is all language to be a puppet of pretence? Do billions of designs have to be added to billions of visible ones, as 'steps on the way' - always invisible? As if this made things 'easier' for a characterisable end-product called life - far less, one called the universe, the very name of which connotes the summing in sequential array, of some of creative components noted above. Or does their absence, these prodigious outpourings of imagined designs on the way (cf. Professors Thompson, Løvtrup, et al., SMR pp. 199-200, 252Aff.), after diligent delving, make their theoretically useless - indeed, pejorative - addition, please any better, any rational enquiry?

Creation, dear readers, like mathematics, art, is what it is - does what it does, and is characterisable by criteria which it, like other powers, displays. The display is variously, multitudinously, concertedly, co-ordinatively, discretely and synthetically present in a canvas reaching beyond measurement, figures and features beyond assessment, stretched before one of the products, called man, so that he can - if he will - show the sheer prodigality of the imagination used in creating him, by 'assessing' it all - with himself - as betokening, really, no creation at all, just specks of paint spattered on the canvas, that has no basis, from tins with no basis, by a hand that is not there with an art that is.

At odd times, he even imagines that despite the clarity of his logic, he may be deceived by his logic, and reasons with 'validity' that it is itself invalid, just to show the tantrum-esque follies of which he is capable, abusing logic - like an asinine trader, abusing as mutinous, another man's mule for not following him - before falling to the ground in a fit of irrationalism, matching rigor mortis. Next, schizoid but chastened, he returns to USE logic to escape logic, and then confused, he continues to speak as if the mere mouthing of words avoided issues.




At the outset in our site, we have first noted and then examined two "books" - and it is very close to LITERALLY two books. They are both exceptionally well-known, the Bible for the mind and the heart of man, and the DNA for his structure. Each is inscribed with efficiency, profound symbolic coherence and cohesion, intimate capacity for correlation with command, system to the finest point, and just that combination of meaning and symbolic method which constitutes design, direction and communication. If this is not communication, nothing could be.

This however is not all. There are two additional books, somewhat more figurative, but not in the least imaginary. The FUNCTIONS to which EACH OF THESE EXTRA 'BOOKS' REFERS is as real as any between two covers in our ambit and purvey of scholars.

The third then, or the first of the two extra books is this: the co-ordination of mental world and physical world, auditory reception and command execution, between the man whose bodily equipment is programmed, and the world which has its physical and botanical, biological equipment programmed. The programs intermesh well; their symbolic sub-structures are unitary in kind, so that the efforts of the one, avail in the other, the impacts of the one are understood in the other, and (cf. Predestination and Freewill, Part 4), there are no alogisms to be found: the logic is unitary.

More, the mind of man, using programmed sub-structures for its ultra-programmatic progressions and pursuits, can understand the products that surround him.

There is therefore, and this is the fourth book, this second unit in our second series: and this is the comprehension-combination that transcends. It goes far beyond the mere structural logical cohesion and synthesis. To emit and receive in terms of a common system is one thing, extremely magnificent though this created product undoubtedly is; but to be so prepared in spirit and mind, so that the raw materials, themselves coherent and cohesive between the two systems, within and without, are able to be grasped, intuited, subjected to imaginative incursions, brought into the scope of thought and will and analysis, yes of understanding for action by the non-material, purpose-proposing, imaginative dimension of the being called man, his spirit, this is the next generation of marvel. (Cf. SMR pp. 348ff..)

Yet it would seem indeed scapegrace in gratitude to God who performed this production with the necessary linguistic, mathematical, comprehensive, analytical skill to manufacture symbols and significances (symbol targets), intimations and executions, thought sub-structures in logic and meaning, and interaction with a subject also formed, if we did not notice a fifth book. This is the power to ruminate concerning the Maker Himself. This naturally is the copestone, to which the imaginary relationship of Pinocchio to his craftsman corresponds in reality. Right through to the inward realisation of the thrust of the logic, the communality of the communication, the direction of the design, the strategy of the construction, man can peer toward the God who made him.

He can do more. It is not necessary in this field to speak of a 5th book, although it would be perfectly meaningful. One prefers not to do so, as at the level we have now reached, the affair is inter-personal to such an extent that the term 'book', so fitting earlier, is somewhat distanced. Rather this is the intimacy-provision for creator and creature when that creature is man. This is what book No. 1 provides for (the Bible), book No.2 is sub-structured to enable (the cells DNA and allied phenomena, atomic parameters and provisions), book No. 3 ascends to substantiate, book No. 4 arises to confirm. We shall however give it a name: there is in this fifth dimension, a correlation that is spiritual in kind, so that it may be termed scope for spiritual communication, and for concord. We are moving from the concept of 'book' to that of 'look', or inter-personal interchange.

This allows testing of promises, assimilation of pronouncements, reaction to orders, comprehension of commands, in a SETTING of illumination of conspectus, like a search-light revealing from the nose of an aeroplane, the configuration of the land far below, and something of the ways of those who live there. This is an ultra-programmatic conspectus, and an inter-personal opening. It is a vista on the divine.

It is complicated by just one vital feature, which is equally a vital failure, such as one may get in a damaged automobile, or TV. There is a perverse streak which surfaces in man, so that the more the promises of God in the Bible are fulfilled, and objectively they all are always found to be of this kind, the less they are wanted; the more the prophecies are brought into history, like obedient little lambs in a fenced paddock, the more is the distaste; the more the disciplines for folly, the more the folly, or the less the concern. While this is not like rectilinear motion, a mere reciprocity, and is complicated by the resilience and capacity granted to the immaterial spirit of man, happily able to divorce itself in imagination and purposes proposed for itself, from almost anything real, at will, it nevertheless is a thrust, an historical trend.

These preliminaries allow our minds to realise the UNDERLYING design, before we consider the externally more obvious examples of it. We can now proceed, this base work done, with what is gained from The Wit and Wisdom of the Word of God, the Bible True to Test Ch. 2.

On design definition, the case is clear. You need what has integrity, or better integrality, oneness in multiplicity, so that many things minister to one result. You need the power to imagine it, since commands do not imagine themselves; the capacity to codify it if you want to use, as in DNA, programmatic devices, the comprehension to make code articulate with command, and command with the raw material for its implementation; you need a series and sequence so that the correct data come with the correct  matériel and the correct provision of it at the correct time, and the correct concept with which to edit any errors and rectify any oddments. So is it with the embryo, and indeed in much of the following growth, outside the womb.

This of course is precisely what is found in design, to make it so; and nowhere on earth is that of man surpassed in any visible realm. How is this so ? It is a question of


complexity for the unity, differential divisions of mind, spirit and matter
for the components, inextricably interwoven for normal function,
operational sufficiency and efficiency for the command centre
or operational agent to secure the results which are to be gained
from comprehensive USE of all the equipment and connections
and phases of life involved.

Nothing comes near such versatility, power and combination, synthesis of dynamic diversity in KIND, as this. Fulfilling the specifications for the definition of design, it yet surpasses all other visible examples.  To remove this example, this exemplar indeed, man,  from  design, would have to remove the concept; but the concept is based on billions of examples, systematically found and implemented by the designed unit himself, man. It is just that his observable case surpasses all in the various elements that constitute what is defined to be design.

There follow three citations from earlier works, to illustrate the ludicrous results which come when man tries to ignore the data, and invent by magical moments in thought (cf. A Spiritual Potpourri Chs. 1-9), what no moments in nature contrive to produce; for you may watch forever, for what lacks what it takes, to take what it has not got. Cars do not produce cars; you need the extra features to imagine and purpose, to contrive and to make them arrive. Man-maker has to have all of this, and for such a thing as man, inventor, creator and imaginer, comprehender and amender, you need as it were the machine tools correlative to that; but it is not machinery: it is imagination and all else that the formation and formulation of command exacts.

Correlative with this again is the obvious fact that INFORMATION does not  arrive, but in information science as seen below, we find that information tends to dissipate, like other design. What is based on its autonomous arrival, when the law directs that the natural course of information is  its dissipation: this is not only UN-scientific; it is ANTI-scientific, and justly put into the realm of magic, where causes inadequate posited, with no evidence, are imagined to go with the results desired.


From  DANCERS ... Ch. 5

Secular desperation finally comes to expression, and reality brings at least temporary deliverance from the futile dream of self-creation of what is not into what is, as design is contemplated in its enormous energy and facility.


From Wake Up World! ...Ch. 6, with some extension, we note this:

Indeed, Gould draws attention to Darwin's belief that you cannot logically expect PROGRESS from the changes in view by any inherent propulsion, citing a letter  to Apheus Hyatt, Dec. 4, 1872:

"After long reflection, I cannot avoid the conviction that no innate tendency to progressive development exists."

That of course led to Schützenburger's impasse (SMR pp. 128 ff., 157ff.). We shall soon see in the CREDO of Gould, more saltations of thought, as in Nilsson and Davies.


The Gould reference is in his book, Wonderful Life, p. 257. Gould cannot find any either. Indeed, he declares this: "Instead of a narrow beginning and constantly expanding upward range, multicellular life reaches its maximal scope at the start, while later decimation laves only a few surviving designs" (op.cit. p. 233). Indeed, he not only notes the mockery which facts achieve of the developmental design by gradual propulsion concept of Darwin, but goes far further. On p. 236, he propounds this: "But if we face the Burgess fauna honestly, we must admit that we have no evidence whatsoever - not a shred - that losers in the great decimation were systematically inferior in adaptive design to those which survived," and on p. 239, he adds:

bullet "... we have no evidence that the winners enjoyed adaptive superiority,
or that a contemporary handicapper could have designated the survivors.
All that we have learned from the finest and most detailed anatomical monographs
in twentieth-century paleontology portrays
the Burgess losers as adequately specialized and eminently capable."

The  "decimation" is his term signifying the vast lost of biota, of design, from Burgess time till now, that ultimate parody of the developing marvel concept, proliferating its productions: for here the marvel is first, together with its proliferation, and then it dies down, up and out. On p. 236, he warming to his task, announces as if under hypnosis to his 'cause', "the mere pattern of life and death  offers no evidence that survivors directly vanquished the losers". Even a postiori, looking back on what was and what is, he is stumped; and that is the ultimate, when you cannot even 'explain' when you see what is the 'result', by the principles which supposedly require it.

So far from their being any inherent power to create design types, we find then that there is an inherent process to remove them, and just as the mechanisms are deemed incredible by Gould, since much is expected and little is gained, in gradualism, in order that the compleat angler should arrive and be capable of function, and we might add, since the evidence of the efforts on the way is so conspicuously lacking in all the myriads that ought to appear, that it is the other side of the impossibility, so that the coin shows both sides at once, which this being all too clownish, is quite fitting. How Alice would have loved it in her wonderland; but in science, of course, it is not a good time to take a course in children's literature, and mix it in!

Small wonder then that Gould is using heaven's name, explicitly, in his apostrophe, like Calvin in Calvin and Hobbes, as we saw in Wake Up World! ... Ch. 6:

HOW, he asks, presuming to do so "in heaven's name" - seemingly in the grip of growing frustration and desperation, like that of Nilsson and Paul Davies in his nothing approach (certainly radical, even if radically irrational)


"HOW ... COULD SUCH DISPARITY ARISE SO QUICKLY"*1A (op.cit. p. 227). The Burgess time provided what he calls a "Burgess maximum in organic disparity" (loc.cit.). The Chinese fossil case cited is reputedly similar (p. 226). "HOW," he continues, "IN HEAVEN'S NAME COULD SUCH DISPARITY ARISE IN THE FIRST PLACE, WHATEVER THE LATER FORTUNES OF ITS EXEMPLARS?" (Cf. Questions and Answers 2, End-note 1.)


 It is of course far easier to go to heaven in word, than in fact; just as it is far easier to have continuity in nature through the power of phrases, than in the power of evident construction.

The intense and literally immense irony is this: that while Gould's words invoke a heaven of whose power no indication in his words appears that he is aware, in the antics or cavortings of his desperation, it is precisely where he invokes this name, that the answer he seeks is not only present: it is blatantly so. However, how many, how often are themselves amazed in due course, at what they did not see, and as we shall see in our Chapter 7 to follow: the sense of irony is not lost on God ! (as in Proverbs 1, 8).


The conundrum, it is most easy to answer. The bewilderment of Gould, it is simple to understand in this matter, just as his own conception of punctuated equilibrium is no more than a nomenclature with which to clad what is not there, and what is lacking on such secular constraints ? It is that lacks in such a theoretical model: a cause for conception, creation, institution, decrease over time rather than increase, beginnings like a splash, and endings like death. Gould here begins to realise in the face of evidence, the ludicrous nature of the omission! At last we find someone so fascinated by the facts, that he actually begins to state them.



From The Majestic Might of the Merciful Messiah: Jesus  Ch. 6

we have four excerpts, but it needs to be read entirely.


Forgetting facts is no way to remember reality.

Yes, they present golden ideas of variation with PROGRESSIVE INFORMATION attached, so that NEW KINDS of living things arise (kinds ? you know The Defining  Drama ... Ch.   10 ?), even though

bullet it has never been seen,
bullet the means for it have never been positively tested and
bullet the equipment to produce it has never been found.

ALL tests fail, for the relevant criterion of advance in integral functionality into more complexity and capacity; and anti-verifications abound. Information science, for example,  brings in yet one more law for this dissident theory to break: a law that information tends to disperse, not concentrate; empirics show NO design increase is made in derivative generations, a fact scarcely surprising since generation of information is generation of adapted data with attached significance; and to signify ?*1

For that,  you need what has it in it to do this, and in the DNA case, to give signified orders that will in fact be executed,  as well. The arrival of kinds in this arena ? We don't find it; there is no such information producer at work in the creation field, to be seen, found, witnessed or observed; no, in advancing kinds of life, there is no scintilla to be found. Books do not write themselves (unless, of course, the text be already written, and we are talking of a program by intelligence to transmit the writing by intelligence, to intelligence-possessing readers, without which the process would be meaningless, valueless and ludicrous);

bullet engines do not elaborate on their mutual, detailed specifications
and enable their decoding into other engines;
buildings do not raise their levels and instal their wiring;
it is necessary in all things to have what it takes.


If you do not have it, you do not get it. If you want thought, you need a thinker to process and understand it; if you want will, you need someone who can will, to get the job of willing done; if you want imagination, you need a subject to specify the topic and the events: you do not make merry with water, nor does lava flow from ice. You need what it takes to get what you've got, or want to get. Making hey with irrationality while the sun of popular favour shines may be profitable and an anodyne for pride; but it is nothing else.

That is the way it is. To dabble in magic or its equivalent,  a theory of irrelevance has been produced.

bullet It cannot stand 'nature' as given from something other than itself,
so it criticises it by showing it came to be what it is by doing what it does not do,
and starting its design productions as it did not start.
We speak here of what is observed, reported and presented by scientists
such as Gould. HE may not have been keen on the implications,
and did produce a theory without power and so void of explanatory power;
but he did note facts in rather important ways!
(I've got some notes for you on that*2.)
bullet Science often does note things like this,
together with what is necessarily implied by them,
in terms of correlative procedures.
How things go when they are there, made, is scarcely correlative, however, 
to how they have got here, in order to be able to go on with things,
once they have been made.

Manufacture is not the same as operation. The work of driver or mechanic is not that of car-manufacturer, creative thought to initiate books is not the work of the librarian, nor is the butcher the breeder.

Operation has only one thing to say at this level. It is not organic evolution. It coincides precisely with creation. How ludicrous is that fixation which some appear to have as the father of thought, so that they talk of the untestable! Testable ? Is it testable whether or not new kinds of creatures are being currently manufactured by 'nature' with out intelligent aid ? Is it testable whether this negation is to be expected where certain forces act in a kind of way which is used to account for design ? Is it testable when the Bible indicates with force and simplicity, that creation was FINISHED, as to KIND ? Is it not obvious that the one implication is fulfilled, and the other is not.

The ideas of forgetting about facts were often to be found in the darkness of obscuration in earlier phases of science over history; but there seems currently to be a reversal and renegacy, back to those other phases.




Again in the same chapter we find this:

It was appalling how Gould, in his Wonderful Life,  found that there were FAR MORE designs, of vast and spreading natures, of enormous complexity, in some of what he deemed (and many follow the concept) earliest times, and that the fact to be EXPLAINED, is not a growth by advents, but a decrease by departures. It was this because explanations of the opposite are rife, often compelled on students with the sort of passionate zeal that seems to come with the 70,000. Indeed, it is in its relentless and self-absorbed determination, reminiscent of the Inquisition; and we do well to remember that voiding logic in the interests of 'faith' is anti-faith, since faith is not an alternative to reality, but a link to it. No more did Christ break His own body at the Last Supper (and He was a real man - Hebrews 2), not some sort of duplicate monster, than does creation find its origin experimentally, empirically or logically in things that are made.

When the Lord speaks in Hebrews 11, of the things which are made not being made of the things that appear, of the visible a production of the invisible (just as, interestingly, obstinacy is from the invisible resource of human will, and makes much visible in its time!), He states what all attests and reason demands. (A work on this topic is REASON, REVELATION and the REDEEMER.)

Yet to produce an idea of why a growth by slow advents should suddenly bring in what Gould attests as the complexities of creation or prodigies of many kinds,  in teeming array and with sub-categories abounding, when a departure by death is the realm of observational fact (and no funeral on earth is the same as creation): this is a feat peculiarly that of Darwin. He gave quite a lead, with leaps of imagination, as if measured reformatting were original creation: as if a printer were the author. In this, he has been sedulously followed, and now that his leap is deep in the storms of complete departure from fact and method in science, we hear of Darwin as though death were not the condition of his theories. He is resurrected by now departed pope, as if his double death - physical and theoretical - were in need of some hope! But there is none...

To explain the opposite of what is before you is a fine explanation indeed, perhaps for the squalls of the impenitent divorce court! It is to science as potassium cyanide to a new-born babe! It is in fact a controversy with reality, more the work of a dissident religion, than related in some obscure way to science. The question is generation of kinds, and no kind of generation of kinds is being found. Not now!

How very remarkable! The idea of this Darwin is that what we CALL designs have ... most slowly come, ah with such miniscule degrees, with vast numbers of non-designs spread like Autumn leaves; and these little things have spread, and grown, and become more and more amazing and complex and so on; whereas the opposite starts off the game, the thing is not found in practice and the means are missing, while laws of science legislate the opposite trend. This is not merely a failure to be verified, but a confrontation with a process totally opposite in kind. Yet instead of immediately dismissing the theory, which never had reason on its side, because empirically it is not merely unable to master the facts, but subjected to mockery by them, they now refer to it as the method of how things came to be, and as testable!

It IS testable, that part is correct; and it has failed - that part needs to be added.

Moreover, this is religion, not science. It is not even a mish-mash of religion and science. It is religion in contravention of science; whereas creation is religion as attested by logic, and verified IN science, by scientific method WITHOUT exception.



Later again:

Design IS that integrated, correlated, purposively designable, functionally proficient combination of imagination, information, actualisation and continuation which bears an imprint of effort where the means for its autonomous arrival do not appear.

This is precisely what is found in matter to the nth degree, with the mathematical, ordered, specified, systematically inter-related components and modalities, structured in types, interactive in sphere, without any attestation of self-making powers, nor any real relevance to such a thought, since its genius is observably to do, not to make itself. It is, functionally,  so disposed as to exhibit what it is in myriads of ways, of exquisite sophistication of style; but not to invent those paths.

This is precisely what is found likewise in life also to the nth degree, with - to start, its correlation with matter, which it moves about with all the friskiness of a fox terrier, organising with the rambunctious thrust of a fighter pilot, deploying it with the imagination of a poet, ruling it with the ruthlessness of a dictator, while allowing by specification, some variation on an original theme. Yet  never is it to be found inventing a new progressive type, exhibiting new features of what by definition is design.

That is the way it is, when you become interested in what happens.

The issue, you know, my dear angelic friend, is really this: it is not whether there is design. By definition that is precisely what is there. It is HOW it got there!




Yet later:

It is dead, in terms of scientific method, and its replacements are as dead as it becomes by such abuse of it, for indicated is an entity which has the means, the grounds, the methods, the evidence, providing attestations of origins and grounds for  the evidence of progressive uplift.




Suppose, angelic brother, just for a moment, they tried thinking ?

But they would not, for you see, this is the case of selective black-out, where their alienation from the scientific evidence is limited to the position of their own origin and status. It is as if they go beserk at its arising (so very scientific, this 'arising', ex-interface, ex-dynamic, ex-guidance, ex-designable grounds at each level for every level), and claim the opposite, the precise opposite of the truth, as their ground, something not attested in any way, something required but absentee to each test. This they do while they sacrifice scientific method alongside the children and call on statistics of how many of them are doing it, as if this were other than a mathematisation of tragedy, and a statistical emulation of suicide.

What is needed is not the imagination of children in the theories of men, coming from adult minds to batter their upbringing, but the force of logic in the imagination of science. If this world does not offer an explanation of itself in itself and from itself, in any phase, evident in any observable, rational, attestable manner, or by necessary implication not from prejudice but from what is in principle observable, and this despite the most rigorous efforts: then something is clear.

What is clear, O angelic one, it is this:  that one must, scientifically, look elsewhere. Lack of prejudice, not of immobility of thought, is what is required in scientific method; but here there is nothing but stasis.

So however intolerant of reason some may have become, we move to something else, call it vertical or lateral thinking, or anything else you like: when you do not find an explanation in one field, but only non-verification accompanied by anti-verification, then you move in enquiry to seek what will not be so devastatingly negative. This is called free thought, in logic, but in propaganda, as in the article's report, a "mishmash of theology and science." This talk does not seem exceptionally scientific.

How could it be ? It is not science, so the methods of non-science, and sometimes of mere nonsense are all that is left. If you have GOT to have this result, despite both logic and evidence, so be it. That is the nature of myth, so myth it is. It is necessary however not to indoctrinate children with private myths, but with realities attested.

Suppose instead the inventors of this form of child indoctrination,  were to think, actually to think at this level. Then, they would proceed in terms of scientific method, which does not START by KNOWING the answers and where they are to be found, but instead moves with a spirit of open enquiry, envisaging, testing, comparing for confirmation on all sides, and insisting on logical structure in thought. Thus you do not EXCLUDE something that is not nature because you KNOW, by scientific method, that this cannot be, since this would be a denial of the entire spirit of research, logical thought and would constitute in its entirety,  a mere attestation of prejudice.

That is the operative phenomenon in their ludicrous naturalism. It does not work:  therefore those who note this fact and show what does, are WRONG. That is the implication however of dogged, dogmatic prejudice and becomes a mere a mish-mash of myth and disinclination.

Mish-mash my friend ?

From the usage I found in the news report, I gather it seems to mean something not very scientific. That is what this is; and it is a mixture, I suppose the mish is this part, and the mash is that part, and they do not like parts - something of this sort perhaps ?

However, how readily we must disagree with them in this, came the voice of the swooping angel, just returning from a quick flit to help a child afflicted  by infantile mythology, at some low secondary school.

Unscientific! the angel sent out the word, with artistic grace during a subsequent aerial manoeuvre. What is unscientific about research, open-minded, open-ended and open at the beginning and in the middle, ready for input from anything that explains, is testable, is verifiable and works, and ready to abandon to the junk-heap what does not, such as Darwin's nonsense and dabbling ? Instead, what do we find in this news report ? It is that Darwin is scientific and is to be kept free from what in fact, by contrast, works and is testable. When did myths become scientific, or when did prejudice become a director of thought.

But surely, is it not so, kindred angel, that it is this kind of subjugation which always happens in totalitarian spheres.

It often does, certainly, but this is democratic in that the government is elected. Yet it happens. We know this because it is HAPPENING and has been so these last 17 years in the State of South Australia.

How COULD such a government which endorses and requires such myths, and attacks with irreligious fantasy objective facts about religion, be elected ?

It CAN happen when people do not care too much about myths being taught, so long as their kids get jobs, and all that. At least it should require a goodly number of social service personnel to look after the lives so readily*3 unhinged into disillusion, dispiritedness and dyspepsia of mind, by such irrelevances, and even dignified tenaciously in SCIENCE, since nothing of reason can help them. They often lie slain like birds with Asian influenza.

But surely this is unfair to them, being not merely dictatorial in the government,  but insidious and seductive, delusive as if driven by desperation, being a mere misuse of authority to achieve what reason cannot secure ?

Of course! this world is not very nice. It killed Christ and now tries to kill truth, while becoming so deluded that it calls its victim trash.

I am reminded of that aspect of this once so glorious creation, whenever I visit: to call good evil and evil good, just as Isaiah declared in his fifth chapter.

Of course, we must be fair. We must clarify that in detail; for while it is quite true that these things occur, yet they do not actually say they are going to seek to keep education in science free of what works in this sphere: it is just that this is what they are doing.

True, we can clarify that, but you know, you would have hoped that they could note that all the requirements of Genesis creation are met, in the three major laws of conservation of matter and energy, the second of thermodynamics and the third of biogenesis, and that this is the same as saying that we do not find nature producing nature, non-life producing life or what meets the definition of design going naturally up, but rather down.

Darwin and the other failures project the opposite, or allow for it, but they do not find it in logic, where what lacks the capacity of thought is to explain the evidences of it; or in empirical science, where what progresses in cardinal kind is never found nor is any evidence of it in the past ever found, only the 'hope' dressed up as a find, when the fact is absent.

Creationism projects THIS, both in the major scope of domains of reality, and in the minor matter of orders of life. If ever new domains, orders came along, and we found why and how, that would be naturalism with flying colours. Since they don't, and what is sticks, and the means for such upward motion are not found, and logic requires that there be means of getting what we have, adequate for the purpose in kind,  then  we must look elsewhere.

So you were saying. What is elsewhere to a material creation ?

An immaterial entity.





Where 'nature' says no! science is not the one which says 'yes' -

but science falsely-so-called, it does it, yet only in the fantasy mode, the idol branch of idle imagination! Let us keep to what we find.


Nature does not, in fact make itself or its components,
but they are USED as they are made to be used,
whether with fancy variabilities of sub-type,
glorious situational provision such as crystallisation, or not.
This is what is empirically observed and rationally founded
in causative constraints. If it were otherwise,
the world of experimental observation is open!
Let it be done! Yet it is not done, for it has been done; and these are two facts.

It is set up and it works according to kind, and if it is capable of being 'hurt' as life is, then it is hurt, not re-designed. That is why we NEVER find increments of design, only variations within each kind. That is why information theory, like biota evidence, is that what is relevant to life, DECLINES. It does so in theory, as in practice; and here the attestations of theory are built not least, on practice as they ought to be in scientific method arenas.

Thus the ONLY place where the ACTUAL power is placed is the non-natural, since 'Nature' does not do the thing in view, namely the institution, constitution and coherence creation of biological language, type, kind, material and vital sub-components, thought, spirit, will and so forth.

We can USE a kind to GET its kind; but we do not have them making themselves, for the very simple reason that in this universe that takes work, and in any causal situation you need for that, what its constitutive constraints require, to institute them, both initially at all, and then in the various kinds in view. The alternative is irrationalism which cannot even argue for itself, since it would invalidate reason, a foolish effort, since reason brings us to revelation and this to
affirmation, verification and validation

(cf. It Bubbles ... Ch. 9, SMR, TMR, Reason, Revelation and the Redeemer ).

Not therefore where the data say NO:  but


where the logical constraints say YES,


where the type of thing observed in our world, has an adequate resource,


where the spiritual aspects of our lives
(cf. SMR pp. 348ff., Little Things Ch. 5, It Bubbles ... Ch. 9, *1A),
have not only their own ground of creation,
which is not by the absence but by the presence of the qualities shown,
not only to be, but to create because it IS,


where truth can without self-contradiction be KNOWN at all, and


where cessation has its meaning:

this is where what is finds what it does,
where reality is investigated and found active,
not in myth or magic, but in measured discourse and certain reason.

THIS is the testimony of experience,
the demand of logic and the ground of verification; 
and it is the resource and the only one for validity,
and the constraint of actuality. There is nothing else.

It is not for  Gould to complain in heaven's name when heaven is the answer, or if you will, the God who made it by will in the creation explosion.

It is not for him to lament: for creation being logically required, and in cessation after 'explosion' confirmed as to nature, being the assignation of the components, not from themselves but from what made them also, we move in this realm, of the rush into existence of multitudes of designs, by Gould's account, followed by decimation of the same. It is not with tragic grief written over our faces, before dabbling in more magic, but with the knowledge that there is ONLY ONE PLACE where the validation and verification alike exists; and scientific method being forced to go where the evidence not only in one phase, but in each phase both separately and synthetically, is to be found, it MUST present this.


And that, it is merely what in fact logic independently requires in its other reaches as shown in SMR, TMR and elsewhere so many times.

That all harmonises to perfection makes of mesmerised man's intolerance of truth the more ample a ground for judgment; but this too, it resides in the One whose powers delimit such a function (cf. Romans 1). On that, see Celestial Harmony for the Terrestrial Host.

That God in His mercy, as the Bible indicates, is ready to forgive, has power to pardon as well as to create, has a willingness to do so and delights in mercy (cf. Micah 7:19-21, Romans 3:23ff., Colossians 1:19ff.), while not directly pertinent to the present concern, is of much relevance to those who conceive it. It is considered at length in The Meaning of Liberty and the Message of Remedy.




From SMR pp. 209ff. we have these components inscribed in design, to match it in unique definitional felicity; and a fortiori, as exemplar extraordinary, at the head of the class of all the designations which attract the term 'design' from the entire gamut of physical constructions of man. Most will have heard of it, there is little doubt, for it is the equipment, which apart from any angelic or spiritual beings who look on, which we are all using at this moment: the human frame and functionality. 

A further excerpt, B , this time from Gratitude for His Glorious Grace, Ch. 4, is inserted between A and C from SMR as above.


All of these observational data are not only alike, but virtually identical in this: they contradict the only dimension of verification available to the theory of organic evolution, a non-predictive theory: that of implication, generic expectation and method. In collision with known laws, in its uncongenial emplacement in the marginal field of metaphysics to which it must be consigned, it rests on irrationality, even for hope (see pp. 211 ff. infra).

Let us recapitulate (cf. pp. 252H, 1028, 1031C infra). Neither is there suitable transition in language complexity, going up over time, on a graded fluid basis; nor is it the case in cell technology; nor in palaeontology, nor in the mathematical correlatives of the cell: nor is there anything in kind different to be said re observed mutational advance (even when, as in the case of the fruitfly Drosophila, the generations and the mutations were both numerous, and the latter large and varied).

Language, though it varies, no more presents a primitive-to-superior gradation correlative with the idea of tribes-to-modern-man, than does cell technology in minor organisms to major ones; mutations do not exhibit, but rather obstruct any living sight of the flow to the watchful eye, as does palaeontology to the retrospective onlooker. The failures of flow on the one hand, a procedural rebuff, and the fact of language and cell initial and pervasive sophistication on the other, a generic contradiction, are merely two of the total non-verifications of organic evolution. The mathematical minutiae of cells, their administrative 'genius' and magnificent miniaturisation, similarly attest that we are dealing with a prodigious mind in its deployment of words and works - the language of cells being reflective, our own introspective: not with some self-developmental sequence where that-which-is-not invents itself from non-existence by clever contrivings.

To all this the noted Professor A.E. Wilder Smith adds a fascinating datum: the cell not only has its molecular system (the materials on site in right proportions), and the apt spatial arrangement of the same, such as isomers exhibit (this is a variable); but on this basis there is to be "superimposed" a "sequential code" in living genes and derived proteins. This super-imposition of conceptual considerations, as a constraint on prior or more basic concepts, this infusion, enforcement, emplacement of code is:

l) A conceptual work.

2) Exactly the function of mind.

3) Facilitated exactly in proportion as all the concepts can proceed from the resources of the one mind, being congenial to the style, system, parameters or powers of its thought (as words to paper, thoughts into words, vision into thoughts).

4) The definitional heart of what we call "design". (Cf. pp. 114-116 supra, 211, 252E-J infra.) That it has here an invisible agent is scarcely surprising, when it is considered that, as shown in Ch. l supra, matter is a design, of necessity a product of a law-maker who is necessarily not material.

To revert: Wilder Smith (p. 53 cf. p. 82 in his work: Creation of Life) emphasises at the technical level that in his experience, a true biological cell is virtually one great code, a code complex, a collation of codes, a code matrix. In terms of this magnificent furniture, made resident like a star boarder in the cell, or "superimposed" on its apt and ready structures: energy becomes "converted" (p. 122 op. cit.) into idea-exhibits. We of course do this with a system of thought on other systems, all the time, having the ability to think, of which this is the specific outcome.

What then ? Observationally, the evidence caresses creation and rebuffs any alternative option, with single-minded intensity denying gradualism. It negates it for language, for cells and for relic transitions, whilst exhibiting the paraphernalia of mind with that exuberance in the living methodology of cybernetics, that we mini-creators with teeming cells at our disposal, habitually deploy in our own language gifts.

The positive and negative criteria, alike, act in symphonic unison to acclaim creation in any contest (cf. Image, and p. 1031C); while the systematic, and sudden methods found in language and gene alike, correlate with the legal force of intransigent matter, to make a concept of mindlessness, a mindless one, ridiculing the facts.

THAT-WHICH-IS-NOT never was nor could be; it is I-AM-WHO-I-AM who both is, must be, and always must have been; and here we see the thoroughly consistent, co-ordinate and correlative working of His mind.



5) The definition dilemma remains.

If you define design (even pragmatically) in terms of

bullet an integrated correlation of unitarily-coded or contrived fabrications,
bullet with components in ordered combination,
bullet involving  multi-systematic concatenations of construction,
bullet not merely irreducible in complexity for function to their sub-areas,
bullet but set as contrivances of integrality for system:

bullet then that is precisely what is found in life.

Take a drawing. It involves a sub-system of paper (which needs a cause to be white and right for the fight of drawing), another of ink (which needs to be clear and not murky to distinguish things with finesse), a third of the objective, a fourth of the skill, a fifth of the will, a sixth of the available environment permissive of such activities, and all of these things, including the imagination and any preludes of imagery to be found, are to be co-ordinated, concatenated: that is the essence of design.

The alternatives for these things do not exist. Neither does imagination come floating on the clouds of chance, nor does purpose, for chance is mere performance of a system, without which nothing would even be definable or describable. The idea is that one system of such and such capabilities will do what another is needed to do, and that this happens if you wait. This is merely equivalent to anti-definitional nonsense.

It is like telling someone starving, or slowly dying of malnutrition, that it is just a matter of waiting. In one sense, this is almost true, for death is the result. It is necessary to find food if life is still in view.

It is necessary to find the sufficient causes of all the above ingredients to attain rationally the functionalities which they provide. Assuming it with some such name as 'chance' is merely using a word for the works. Many do this; but they do not prosper. It is necessary always to have what it takes and to use it; and if some series of systems or intelligences produces just what you want, this is entirely irrelevant to the point in view. THEY HAD TO DO IT. It was to be done, and they had the constructive capabilities inherent in them. If you find what they did, it was still done by sufficient causative agencies.



From  SMR p. 211,

we have  this implication in intelligence, correlatively.

It is necessary to point out that it matters not at all where the information input - the directions for operation, the practical provisions for implementation of the directions (plans do not create factories: you need both, and a mind for either in this world), the data banks, the codes, the linguistic provisions for intelligible computation, interaction between parts and hence the intelligence - where, and indeed when this is inserted.

You can build as you will, put down your money when it is acceptable to the builders, have the machinations at will: but it is all to be done.

If it is done in miniature (as in the cell codes in the human body), then this takes more input, it is harder. If it is done in spectacular and unexampled miniaturisation, as in the cells of this same body, that takes the more. If moreover, it is done embryonically, no matter: it is merely the more intensive that the application of intelligence must be. Commanding, symbolic control is not meaningless motion. A coherent, managing code in a cohesive managed circuit in an integrated, collaborative whole of billions of parts (each cell), multiplied by billions (each body) - is not the easiest to manage, as it is forming itself and containing the lively data for growth, the while.

None of us can manage it. Its technology leaves us for dead, as Dr Denton points out, by orders of magnitude that seem astronomical. Thus while its manner of the introduction of this prodigy is of much interest, and the point is clearly addressed, yet it is the fact of its introduction, like a payment into a schoolboy's bank account, which should not be forgotten, with concern about the method, however legitimate this subsidiary question may be.

As also shown in this chapter, the implications of the startling method of introduction of this machination, and origination of this equipment are of such a character - that this element also is of prodigious importance.

Let us however, not forget the fact of the amount deposited. We have nothing which by observation can match for intelligence, by results can equal for its manifestation, the equipment with which on earth we think, and move and have our being. If the source were not intelligent, contrary as we see and shall see, to all reason, then our greatest works should be denied the attribute of intelligence. However, we experience the intelligence as we proceed in our works; and perceive it is profoundly surpassed in the works which make our working possible: the construction of our bodies, minds and spirits, and of the world which is their visible habitat.

That is of course the definitional dilemma always faced by unbelief: if you are going to be consistent, and define what it is that intelligence is by what it does, then the essential characteristics and criteria are surpassed in what we are, as evidence of its working, relative to anything we do. Yet intelligence is by definition attributed to us in terms of performance. Alas for the atheist, we are monumentally outperformed. See further: Chapter 3, esp. pp. 262-263, 290 infra.



For the cult of the forbidden, see SMR pp.330-331, in Book 2 Glossary, in terms of bathos.

Evolutionism is a bathetic degradation from creation. The phrase in question is added below, largely as from the text in SMR at this point. See also the SMR index on this phrase.

Bathos - adjective, bathetic. Bathos is a ridiculous fall from the stupendous, grand or outstanding, to the ordinary or the unimpressive. In literature, this can disgust, offend or amuse.

In science, as here, it can scarcely amuse.

As Professor Thomas Barnes of El Paso University (famed physics researcher) put it in Scientific Studies in Special Creation, Ed. Lammerts, pp. 330 ff.:

''No laws of science are more firmly established than these three laws ...'' Which? He referred to: ''the First Law of Thermodynamics, the Law of Biogenesis and the Second law of Thermodynamics'' - p. 331. The first (''also known as the Law of Conservation of Mass-Energy''), implies that despite different forms (''including mass''), ''total energy remains constant.'' The second means that in a self-contained system, processes have ''an irreversible tendency ... to go toward lower order'' - to degrade - decay and disorder increasing. The third ''states that life comes from life.''

Obviously a static lump of energy-mass (1), a life for life procedure - not non-life for life (3), and a decay liability (2), these are the observable material or visible facts to be expected, if creation happened, and stopped. That is virtually an identity statement. It is this which is observable, and that is a creation verification with which evolution cannot for its part compete.

We are in the maintenance phase. The thing to be maintained is in the finished phase. What is maintained, miracles like the bodily resurrection apart, tends to wear out. This is scientific and also a matter of common observation. That is distinctive, detailed verification of the Bible.

Why then, in the full scope of the evidence and the concepts already seen, is creationism not taken as the only 'theory' which can currently be considered scientifically, rather than the only one that cannot! (See pp. 129, 135-144, 149-151, 158-159, 202-203, 208-209, 213, 252A-C, 284-290, 315C-316A supra; cf. Ch. 2 Suppl., and pp. 332E-G, 421ff. infra.) The rules are broken in this, that it is not so received. There is a metaphysical paralysis of thought which has made the many consider this: that if PROCESS be not ASSUMED to be the author of process... in the sense that the CURRENT is not the father of what is current; or if PRESENTLY OBSERVABLE THINGS or a CURRENT CONTEMPORARY REGIMEN are not the source of living things, then this is unscientific.

THAT however has nothing to do with science.

To LIMIT and REDUCE the scope of hypothesis to some preferred sanctum, some sanctuary hidden free from reality: this is precisely what science is not, what scientific method forbids. It is what begs the question a priori, and sets mere philosophy in state at the head of science, with prejudice for its queen by its side. From this its place, it mocks science. (Cf. pp. 252I supra, and 332E-G infra.)  

In evolutionism, this is the CULT OF THE FORBIDDEN, where certain areas of thought are excluded, irrespective of the validity and virtue, indeed the eminently and uniquely verified position which they attain under test. One is FORBIDDEN by frightened secular traditionalism to even look at this superior-performing area. This obsession with exclusion is a cult because it is irrational, and posing as science, is pre-eminently unscientific, the very acme of prejudice, and the method of blindness.

The source however should be conceived especially in terms of its product, the hypothesis should be esteemed in accord with its power to cover the data, the case - to work to meet specifications of test in neutral and fair play. WHATEVER theory works, which is uniquely verified, is relatable well to other effective theories, the one suffering no loss to any test for verification: THIS in science has superiority. What fails verification in adequate test, even one, is already excluded; what knows no verification is not included.

Thus to refuse a 'theory' on the basis of its source... is like academic racism; "Give us an answer from an 'accepted' source, or its merit will be entirely disregarded!" - so goes the philosophy of alienated prejudice (which, as we have seen - is also the metaphysics of irresolvable antinomy in this case, cf. references above). This is the 'word' of this discriminatory metaphysics masquerading as science.

Let it! it has nothing to do with science. When it also 'accepts' what tests of verification in fact exclude, it is merely comedy.

What the Bible states however - finished creation which is wearing out (e.g. Isaiah 51:6, 49:26, 45:12, 48:12-13, Colossians 1 - the first declaring: ''The earth will grow old as a garment''), and what is basic scientific law are in entire and absolute agreement.

What disagrees is undisciplined imagination! evacuated of verification, parachuting bathetic follies of irrational creeds, evolutionism, dispelled by logic, is humbling science by force-feeding it with these deceptive and hallucinatory dreams. Now what is there? ... the wonder of creation, and the folly of such delusive dissertation, doctrine, decrees - and in that ? you have bathos to perfection.


Again, the 'cult of the forbidden' it is met in a governmental approach made last year, close to the following:

What however is the 'cult of the forbidden' ? It is that cultural negativity, fear or subtlety (depending on motive) whereby certain matters are (ostensibly) ruled in advance of all evidence, 'out of court' - the court of culture. Whether it be deemed to be politics, religion or other field, the result is a mental crimping that too readily becomes downright dishonesty if not, indeed, hypocrisy, in which dimension the noted scientist Løvtrup is most (justly) critical - cf. SMR pp. 202, as seen in his work, Darwinism, The Refutation of a Myth.

In this parody of scientific method, certain things are out of cultural bounds, being inconsistent with desire, ethos, illusion or delusion; irrespective of their truth. Even research as Løvtrup notes, can be compromised in this way.

In its opposition to creationism in religion, it may involve the detestable folly of pretending that evidential procedures are irrelevant, and, worse still, that it is illegal to be logical and alert with evidence and reason, lest emotions be roused. This subordinates truth to convenience and not for long may one justifiably expect the continuance of such folly, or of any society where it distinctively rules.

Reality is a dangerous enemy with whom to trifle by such policy and contempt. By this means, irrelevant irrationalities and absurdities - such as is organic evolution in terms of scientific method - may be 'allowed', in that by a mythical or even at times mystical oversight, their merely mythical powers are ignored; whereas the more scientifically oriented view of creation is 'excluded' as 'religious'. (Cf. pp. 211-222, 226-234, 330-334 infra.) 

Myth, the attribution of executive power to what gives no attestation of its very existence, is not to be desired in any rational pursuit. This is precisely the methodology of organic evolution. Whilst modes of variation about a kind occur, as the very shape of mankind attests, response to stimuli being marked within many designs of life, and damage is not unknown, yet transmutation is as often seen as billion dollar notes (cf. SMR pp. 106, 236), increments of information in more advanced design have yet to be discovered as self-engendered, this being the nature of information science, which has its own variety of the second law of thermodynamics, natural loss: and as to its imagined methods, these are found not at all.

Myth is its just and definitionally apt name for organic evolutionism. It is not in the least abusive; for on its proposed basis, it is an accurate description.

And this ? it is science! What a testimony to the alienation from God, that what is irrational is proposed as science, and what meets its ways overwhelmingly and with conspicuous accuracy in every dimension testable, is cultically excluded.

On the very contrary to these pendulous propositions of organic evolutionism: coherent, confirmed rationally sustainable presentation as in creation, short-circuits nothing by mere human fiat, nor does it need to; for creationism acknowledges the just result of free verificatory procedures on this basis, compared with those of other and alien kinds.

Thus, Christianity unlike this organic evolutionary degradation,  with open heart and incisive mind is quite freely available for 'inspection' - and meets any intelligently administered critical test with overwhelming results, that are as unified as they are unique; and it alone systematically meets logical requirements of consistency and rationality. (Refer SMR Chapters 1, 3 and 10). This becomes relevant for biblical creationism, as one particular variety of it, which has no humanly imposed limits to its field or its testability, no arbitrary exclusivism, but speaks by its works.

Contrary to this and to this openness,  this cult of the forbidden has become an anti-logical discriminatory device, protective of irrationalisms and, in educational circles, often excluding the only logically sustainable answer even from consideration! Endless ragings between competing theories, with this excluded, is a PREDICTABLE as it is an ACTUAL result. It is also verification. If you refuse that 2 plus 2 equals 4, there is sure to be strife among the exclusivists!

It is time students were made aware of their options, and educated fairly, and not fairily or merely airily in this realm. To the end of the creation in its just and due judgment, as surely fabricated as other functions relating to life, there is and never will be any excuse for the extravangances of mental manipulation which have excluded the precisely indicated and continually confirmed source of matter, mind and spirit, in their relationships, and the inordinate co-ordinations of exquisite sympathy and rationality which  betoken them empirically, in a riotously irrational model of a causeless universe, itself a subject of casuistry, inventing itself from nothing at once or in stages - the case is indifferent - and giving itself a cause for the causality which operates equally from the cause-free basis of its day-dream models, mangled machinations and irascible antilogies.



See in addition to  SMR and TMR, especially for modern cases, Wake Up World! ... Chs. 4-6, Secular  Myths ... and Earth Spasm ...; and of course the specialist work on scientific method,  Scientific Method, Satanic Method and the Model of Salvation.




One of the features of this element, aesthetic masterpiece, is frequently attested; another, programmatic marvels as in sunsets, is there to join it ; a third, the sheer profusion in littoral abundance on the shores of life, of modes and means, all set in one language, like the work of a profound thinker, a precise mathematician, a thrusting artist, an astute engineer, surges into sight; yet another the shrewd and intelligent use of prepared program items, in now this, now that alternate placement in some design or other astounds with its ingenuity: what we have called deliberative design (cf. SMR pp. 252H-J). A mode is inserted into a module, with sophisticated disregard of difficulties, with the brilliance that outwits difficulties and sets the tone for genius.

In all these things, there is no mere mooing of the mud into a cow format, by miraculous intervention from what is excluded by the cult of the forbidden. Rather there is an incandescence of creativity, the exquisite form and formulation, whether as curse or as blessing, of such a profusion of methodology on one base in DNA, with one language for it, yet with artifices most refined, switches and sudden ramping to this or that, whorls of force within force, of mode within mode, that there is a sense of rollick, with gravity of impact added on one side, and sheer rush of life on the other.

You see it, for example, in skin:

bullet where the more
bullet you examine its layers and the programmatic devices for all sorts of endurance and sensitivity,  repair and recovery, its tendency to act as one organ yet with many phases,
features and regions, equipped with vast supply of the cells to enable
the multiple devices to be implemented, and routes for the organic connections to apply,
via biochemical brilliance and neural finesse, level on level, organ on organ, all provided -
bullet then the more you relish
bullet the crescendo of such a series of progressive propositions and proposals
as you move yet higher.

At last, you come to the centrality of the person for whom all this works as a bank-manager, engineer, computer consultant, energy supplier, form conserver, whether this is direct, or merely at this or that level of recess, available for reference as required or apt; and for that person, there may arrive some form or formula for achieving notice or receiving inclination.

Such is the movement from the parameters, the peripheries, the circumference, the internalities, to the person at the apex of such an array, and so may attention from that person be attained. or  thought provided, so that it may move, mobile and sensitive into the spheres of the concatenative creativity beneath. And the example chosen is one of the least expressive of the manifestations of this ruminative thrust and comprehensive concert available for human comprehension, as the mind of man becomes more aware, over generations, of the flashing brilliance, the ebullient dashes, the refined precisions of his source and His productions (cf. SMR Ch. 1, Ch. 5, It BubblesCh. 9, Little Things Ch. 5).

In the correlative clutchings, the integrative mutualities within man, whether physiological, psychological, moral or spiritual, there is movement towards integrality and availability for purpose: such is the domain called mankind (cf. Psalm 86:11, 84:5-11). "Unite my heart to Your fear," requests the Psalmist of the Lord - to a reverential understanding of my due awe and reverence towards You; and there is no other unity but in the meaning of God. Mere dismemberment from the Creator Himself, accordingly leads to Carl Jung's stress on integration of the personality and its disintegration, areas insoluble (outside the Lord), with mere partial probes directed to the problems involved (cf. SMR Ch. 4).

That is the pathology that the psychiatrist can see but not heal. Looking past that, however, to the structure in man, the case evokes wonder. Indeed,  in each one of this race who is still intact, there lies the exquisite heart and centre of design, paralleled politely whether in purely human book or machine, in other works of art.

This onrush and outpouring of the ultimate creative power thrusts at every height in the realm of creativity where what was not, comes into being, carved, coerced or simply led in its conceptual impacts, to achieve a form, a format and a function, and in the case of man, defining him with a vast liberality of licence, for his life (cf. Licence for Liberty).

Thus this divine thrust of creativity reached to the construction of man, who thus became the creative conceptualiser. He was even given the creative liberty to conceive of himself well or wickedly, and of God truly or quasi-inventively, in a desperado's misuse of the creative dynamic.

We saw something of this in Christ's Ineffable  Peace  and Grace ... Ch. 1:

Instead of instinct, in man, very often there is a drawing (rather than a driving), a trend, a sense of seemliness, of fitness, of justness, an appeal that lingers, an esprit, an entente, a realisation which impels, but more than that, commends itself with reason and natural force alike: when certain beauties of conduct, spirit or display touch the heart, anoint the eyes, refresh one's sight. It is a multiple inspiration, a manifold stirring and a ramification of relish.


They are like

bullet the nest for the hen
bullet the eyrie for the eagle,
bullet the ocean for the vessel,
bullet the glade for the rest of man,
bullet the slope for exuberance in running.


Their appeal is as to an image, a configuration of character, a divine and sublime gift of orientation and perspective, meaning and an inward rejoicing at sightly, not unsightly, blessed and not baneful, endearing and not challenging realities that resound within, just as certain oboe may evoke thought of a clear and matching human voice, and cause one delight in finding the two so intimately blended. The image of God in man is certainly defiled; but it is not defunct.

Such perceptions and conceptions, grounds and intimations, feelings and attractions are inviting a natural response of aesthetic, moral, spiritual or personal character, distinctively, with a sense of rest, blessedness or delight, indeed a combination of such things. Moreover there is in many a sense of justice which may even sting their heel when they perform some outrageous, drastically selfish action,  or become witlessly morally inert, to the vast detriment of someone who suffers as a result.

In such cases, their guilt can outwit their own subtlety to protect themselves, and their consciences can become inveterate in judgment; and to some may even seem intemperate in persistence, while they themselves languish in a turmoil of inner events.

They have violated not some mere cultural code, in the deeper cases, but what is integumental to their souls, equal in strength to their own existence, as necessary inwardly as is a wing to the single-engined airplane outwardly,  the tail to the whale or the wing to the flitting bird.

They insult their own specifications, not of choice, but of construction. Such times, such occasions, such actions may become mordant with regret, justifiable guilt ;for it is simply not true that one is the centre of the universe, or that one's survival is intrinsically essential, and end in itself to end other ends - that is mere subjectivism without any thought or weighing of realities at all, as superficial as a scratch when surgery is needed.

Seeking to fly without wings is an uninviting pursuit, and to proceed contrary to one's specifications an unrewarding pastime. Yet now in our generation, progressively over the sixties of the last century, and then in steps into the valley of catastrophe, there is a more and more systematic endeavour, as an ideology, to violate the sanctity of wisdom, justice, righteousness, equity and peace in the inane endeavour to be what we are not, and to become what is impossible to attain: our own little gods, or else to have a culture which has a cultural god, or an international regime which will impose one.

What is this ideology, or to what does it tend ? It must be logically ludicrous, ethically abominable and morally inert, in order to appeal to the lost souls who raise the flag of self-assertion as their god, and seek to have something spelled out for its nature. As the Bible says of idols, they who make them are like them. There is an assimilation process, and in practice, politically, it often has a dominating drive of force to aid capitulation to its irrational wilfulness.

Indeed, our generation seems to specialise in the unseemly, the unsightly, the selfish, the striving, as if it cannot quickly enough cast off from its docking site into the oblivion of darkness where there is no light, but to fight, no goodness but to survive, no justice but to grab, and no kindness but to manage, the soulless witlessness of the unmanned. It seems disposed to drift, this generation, in its cultural mode, not without a driver or captain, but without a chart or even a desire for one, as it sets to sea and sees only dangers, reefs, escapes, but neither beauty nor wonder. To keep going seems long ago, now, to have become an icon, without regard to the direction, the ground for movement or the nature of man or destiny. It is increasingly about keeping alive, ignoring WHAT it is that keeps alive, and its results, rationality and ground, far more its design, destiny and the point of its dynamic.

The image of God in man, increasingly despised, makes for both fear and fecklessness by the fractures from its abuse, as for dishonesty and corruption, unreliability and unfaithfulness in business, in friendship, in domestic issues, in paternity and maternity as children are cast off as some new passion drives the weak to their woeful ways. It makes for a peace-free zone, like a nuclear free zone in reverse. It is about generating this, and maintaining that empty desideratum, and so the selves war, and the selfish-cultures clash and the self-willed clamours abut onto each other's soil. Jurisdiction flames as in the Middle East, and the abominable agitates, as in Moslem militancy, or what denies persons, as in Communism (cf. Aviary of Idolatry, Highway to Hell, Divine Agenda Ch. 6, News 97, 98), has persons nonetheless tell other persons what to do, like a headless monster, except that that head feeds itself quite well, few better!


Many in this way are tilted by this environment to slippage and a guilt unrelieved, which turns pathos to bathos, and joy in the Lord and His truth to desperate antics of avoidance, so making void the structure for harmonious  and happy relationships, between the image-bearers of God, the human race. These individuals, nations, ideological armies, increasingly are now found, each loving its importance and both hating and betraying one another, in diplomacy no less than in domesticity, while teaching that this IS LIFE!

Slavery was once more common in the gross and physical sense, of some over acting in this demanding way over others; but now it is becoming all but de rigueur to make oneself into a personally induced slave of desire, or of self-fulfilment, a variety of selfishness. Thus, although this MAY contain an element of right use of talent, often it is based on pleasure, satisfaction, self-gratification and has no ethical component whatever, an output judged by experience, devoid of reason, abstracted from its ground, like a dead branch considering how best to fall.


Small wonder one of the British scientists has spoken of the future in terms of WHETHER there is one for man, because of war, which is of course a symptom of disintegration rather than integration, and failure to find the placement of man in the Creator's creativity.

Many times, nevertheless, man uses his creativity well it in its derivative mode, becoming creative himself in the fields of his proper domain; and at the beginning, man was used and formed by it, the sovereign, summary and original granting to man of the form, function and power to seek in turn to plumb its depths, scan its heights, and recognise its greatness; and to know Him who so acts. To what heights the creation of God reached for man; and to what depths man has descended, spiritually the case increasingly resembling one who is in a lift, and can find only the down button, and obsessively presses it, in frustration, for he can find no other with his eyes shut

(cf. Matthew 13:14ff., and see

Man then presses on as he descends, creating all manner of devious and deceitful international diplomacies, with fears, hidden arrangements (as before World War I), treacheries (as Hitler's against Russia), method of slaughter (as in the Jewish death camps in Germany, the selective extermination of leadership in Cambodia, various genocides as in Rwanada, Biafra and Sudan), perilous sub-groupings (as those of Russia and Iran commercially), oppressions of nations (as in Tibet, China by an unelected oligarchy which oppresses things of the spirit intemperately, illustrated in the Falun Gong), irreversible contaminations for the atmosphere and the earth by nuclear means, even spreading such debris into space. He learns more how to be devilish, which should have been the basis for an angelic bliss. Yet in much his creativity still soars, in various forms of art, architecture, music, literature and thought.

Meanwhile egotism searching in itself for its meat and meanign, fails; and humility, finding its Source, rejoices at the divine power of that Being to invent the ocular, the visible, the material, and to instill the spiritual into it in the pattern and patent called man,  moving not only in the material area for its own delimited dynamics, but in every systematically associated arena, to give it space and place in life.

Past all the domain of instituted system and constituted limitations, the arenas of concatenated co-operations on established bases, the draftings of ingredients like matter and mind, the donation of spirit, there comes at length accountability to that supra-temporal cause and source for what, drafted,  is not its own origin, being detailed to its own dynamic and place in the entirety. Prepare, says the prophet Amos, to meet your God! Many have been the preliminaries for Israel, for Tyre, for Assyria, for Babylon (cf. The Pitter-Patter of Prophetic Feet ... Ch. 4, SMR pp. 713ff.), for Nineveh; and vast is the finale; for just as man became the visible apex of this divine creativity, so is man due to be the manifest occasion of the judgment due to its desecration (cf. Acts 17:31ff.).

Mercifully, the very One chosen to judge man is the One who bore judgment for Man, according to the word of God, the Bible, duly fulfilled in every detail in history. One remembers how readily Corrie ten Boom was received in one prison where she wished to speak of Christ to hardened criminals. They began an uproar, but when she made them here her tell them that she too had been confined in just such a way as they, instantly they gave her attention! (cf. I Peter 2:22ff., 3:18).

God has thus even called forth the method of deliverance for man, not only inventing human creativity but from His own eternal understanding (Revelation 14:6, 13:8, Ephesians 1:4), designating the solution, the salvation required for straying man, made so high in his spirit, running so low in his way.

Sufficient, He grants to all what is in its gift, enabling co-ordinated function as myriad levels. To Him, time itself give place, in our contrived systematics, to what is in no way limited, chronologically, systematically or spiritually, but eternal, in what He will, eternal that anything might be, unconstrained for nothing is there to do it in what depends wholly on Him; and He, knowing all, stays as He is, declaring : I AM WHO I AM, thus providing for any and for all.
