“Look, there’s Mount Katahdin.” No, that’s Mount Coe, Katahdin is 5.5 miles to the southeast.” “You need to brush up on your geography a bit.” “I aced geography; maybe you would like to borrow my notes on the mountains of Maine.”
Now both of these men could be wrong, but both cannot be right. The mountain that they see could be Katahdin or it could be Coe, or it could be neither, but it is not both. Their positions are mutually exclusive. If either is right, the other must be wrong.
And so it is with the many religions of the world. If one world view is right, all others must be wrong. World views are mutually exclusive. For example, if Biblical Creationism correctly explains where we came from and where we are going, then the Theory of Evolution is nothing more than imaginative misinformation, or vice-versa. Since nobody was there to observe the beginning, both positions require faith and in spite of what some pseudo scientist might say, both are tenets of religious world views.
One thing is certain, the observable laws of the universe require that there was a beginning. So, the question is, did nothing create everything, or is their an omnipotent designer who is responsible for this great design?
The Bible says, The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God… (Psalm 14:1). For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: (Romans 1:20).
Someone might say, “If only this supposed creator could be known.” Good News! He can be known! The Bible tells us that He will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. (1Timothy 2:4). How can the creationists be so sure? It’s because they know the Creator God personally, through faith in Jesus Christ.
