God's wisdom vs. Man's wisdom
or
Creation vs. Evolution
 
Creationists and evolutionists already agree that all life has a common origin and overwhelming scientific evidence supports this conclusion. They differ greatly on what that origin is. Creationists say with certainty that GOD is the origin of all life. Evolutionists cannot say with any certainty exactly what the common origin of life is. Since they don't know what the origin of life is they cannot eliminate GOD as the origin of life. The real controversy; therefore, is between GOD's wisdom and man's wisdom. Only one of these can actually be wisdom and truth for the truth of one makes the other ignorance.  

A Christian's hope and confidence is in the eternal WORD of GOD, Jesus Christ, GOD with us. An evolutionist's confidence is in science and the wisdom it offers him. God said, "For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent." 1 Corinthians 1:19   There is a vast body of man's wisdom in the world today. How could it be possible for it ever to be completely and utterly destroyed? The following hypothesis is put forth as an answer to this question.

 

 

 

HYPOTHESIS

 
The destruction of all earthly wisdom and understanding can and will happen. Herein is a rational explanation of the very simple circumstances whereby the wisdom of the wise and the understanding of the prudent are literally, completely, destroyed and brought to absolutely nothing whatsoever; futhermore, they could not possibly continue to exist under the circumstances of this hypothesis. "Come, let us reason together..."  

The GOD of the bible claims to have formed the universe from absolutely nothing. There is no universally accepted scientific evidence to either prove or disprove this claim so for this hypothesis we will simply assume that GOD IS and that He did exactly as it is recorded in the bible, "For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it." Exodus 20:11 (KJV)

Simple minded persons may be tempted to divide up the word "assume" to make a crude joke; however, if it were true even the most ordinary hypothesis could not be made. It is not required to believe these statements in order to test this hypothesis. The only requirement for testing this hypothesis is simply accepting the assumption. Before advancing any farther it is important to consider the scope of the claim of creation which has been attributed to God and His Word.

Of all that is encompassed by this account of creation, the creation of heaven and its boundaries would have required the greatest amount of energy far and away above all else; therefore, we will use the creation of heaven as our reference for establishing the scope of God's claim. We will refer to the account of creation taken in its entirety and quite literally for our definition of "heaven". Briefly, the "heaven" of creation is what modern science calls "space". All of the account is absolutely literally true and there are no contradictions. Rather, any such appearances that one may suspect are simply limiting statements that direct a more narrow conclusion preserving the truth of all statements. Within the account there is always a literal solution where all statements are true. For example, if one would examine the account carefully one would see that God claims waters were divided and that waters beneath became oceans while waters above are above the firmament. Upon first glance it may appear that waters above are clouds but a closer examination reveals that these waters are beyond the vast expanse of space wherein the stars, sun, moon, and other heavenly bodies were hung. For this hypothesis we make no attempt to quantify the energy required to create all the things encompassed by "heaven". Any student of science can easily recognize that this quantity has no meaningful limit and can for our purposes safely be assumed to be so extremely large that limitless or infinite would best describe it. The power, knowledge, and ability required for God or any other being to have made heaven and all that it contains must equal or excede all that was made; therefore, for God to have made heaven He must be nothing less than infinitely powerful, i.e., omnipotent, just as he claims to be. If He is in any resepct less than that which was created He could not possibly have created it.

The full bible account of God's creation is included below for reference. Remember, it is all quite literally true for our hypothesis and it can only be understood correctly as such:

Genesis 1:1-31 (KJV)
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
[2] And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. [3] And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. [4] And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. [5] And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
[6] And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. [7] And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. [8] And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
[9]
And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. [10] And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. [11] And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. [12] And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. [13] And the evening and the morning were the third day.
[14] And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: [15] And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. [16] And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. [17] And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, [18] And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. [19] And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. [20] And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. [21] And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. [22] And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. [23] And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
[24] And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. [25] And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
[26] And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. [27] So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. [28] And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
[29] And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. [30] And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. [31] And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

If God created all that there is it must follow that GOD also created every element of all that there is, forming the atoms, the electrons, protons, neutrons, subatomic particles, and absolutely everything else. "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." Hebrews 11:3 (You should recognize "...things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." as a succinct description of all observable matter in the universe.) The existence of these things which do not appear are foundational to all that can be known by scientific observation. Without them there is nothing to observe, no science at all. Furthermore, because GOD made His creation from nothing He must also be able to make it become nothing again. God said that He would do just that, "But the day of the LORD will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." 2 Peter 3:10

 

What of all of man's wisdom could be known if there was not even the slightest atomic particle left of the universe? An honest person must conclude that all earthly wisdom and understanding would vanish when heaven and earth passed away with a great noise, and the elements melted with fervent heat. All that you have ever known apart from the WORD of GOD will be destroyed in an instant. All that you have ever known of GOD's WORD will be preserved. "Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away." Mark 13:31 The wisdom GOD gives us in His WORD will stand for eternity! "There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD. " Prov 21:30

 

Put your confidence in the omnipotent eternal creator GOD who, in His WORD said: "For after that in the wisdom of GOD the world by wisdom knew not GOD, it pleased GOD by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe." 1 Cor 1:21 and, "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal." 2 Cor 4:18 A God that can do these things can and will indeed "destroy the wisdom of the wise, and ... bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent."

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [2] The same was in the beginning with God. [3] All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. [4] In him was life; and the life was the light of men. [5] And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. [14] And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1 1-5,14

Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him. Psalm 2:12
