modynamics; see Miller, 2013). The
naturalist
must further contradict
himself by alleging an
unnatural
explanation for the origin of life
(i.e., life coming from non-life, in
contradiction to the Law of Bio-
genesis; see Miller, 2012). And
what’s more, the
naturalist
must
contradict himself by alleging that
various kinds of living creatures
can give rise to completely different
kinds of living creatures through
macroevolution—a contention
which, unlike microevolution, has
never been observed to occur
in
nature
(see Miller, 2014). Abiogen-
esis, spontaneous energy genera-
tion, the eternality of matter, and
macroevolution are all
unnatural
suggestions since they have never
been observed to occur
in nature
,
and yet they are fundamental to the
naturalist’s unnatural view. Simply
put, the atheistic naturalist’s posi-
tion is self-contradictory.
The worldview that
is
in keep-
ing with the evidence—that is not
self-contradictory—is the Christian
faith as described on the pages of
the Bible. The naturalist cannot ex-
plain the Universe without relying
on unnatural means. The creation-
ist has no problem with unnatural
explanations, since the Bible clearly
states that God—a supernatural
Being—created the Universe and
life. Truth is never self-contradic-
tory. When scrutinized, it always
comes out on top. When a person
chooses to fight it, he will inevitably
get hurt in the end. “The fool has
said in his heart, ‘There is no God’”
(Psalm 53:1).
