DEFENSE MECHANISMS IN NATURE

How could such an unusual habit evolve to reveal the warning colour pattern so perfectly? How did the insect know it was there, and could be menacing?

MORAL CAUSALITY PLUS FREE CHOICE

We see too much evidence in contemporary American life indicating that the American form of democracy is being undermined. It is being slowly secularized and deprived of its religious and spiritual foundation. There are too many attempts in the Western World to preserve the inviolability of human rights after surrendering or denying their ultimate Divine source.

THE PRINCIPLE OF CAUSALITY

Does deep insight, great clear rational thinking, great courage, great duty, great faith, great love demonstrate the priority of nothing? It is prepos­terous to argue that the most profound thoughts, sentiments and actions of man argue the priority of nothing.

THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE FIRST PRINCIPLES IN THE MIND OF A CHILD

Proverbs 22:6: Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

OF FLOWERS AND THE BALTIMORE ORIOLE (C. 1958)

Unfortunately, increase in factual knowl­edge has not resulted in greater recognition of God. Rather it seems that man has felt that by explaining something he has eliminated the need for a God.

CONCORD BETWEEN SCIENCE AND FAITH (C. 1958)

Once the scientist has exercised faith in the Creator of the universe this faith can only grow as a result of his or her studies.

LABORATORY LESSONS (C. 1958)

The Bible is proved scientifically accurate, even in its many small details …

MAN HIMSELF AS EVIDENCE (C. 1958)

I believe in God because He has given me moral judgment … Though our ideas may differ, we argue for our “rights” and assume that fairness and justice are not meaning­less words to our adversaries.

SOILS, PLANTS, AND A 4000-YEAR-OLD EXPLANATION (C. 1958)

Jesus was a first-rate Agriculturist.

WONDERS OF THE SOIL (C. 1958)

The soil is a world of wonders all by itself, but only scien­tific study brings that out.

NATURALISM MUST BOW TO THEISM (C. 1958)

THROUGHOUT all the ages of human history man has asked three profound questions: Whence came I? Why am I here? Where am I going? Many hundreds of books on metaphysics have dealt with these questions. The riddle of existence is an age-old problem. The thesis of this chapter is that theism provides the most satisfactory answer to a rational mind.

SCIENCE UNDERGIRDED MY FAITH (C. 1958)

Science brings about an insight into the majesty and omnipotence of the Supreme Being which grows stronger with each new discovery.

CHEMICAL LAWS AND GOD (CIRCA 1958)

What is the directing force that underlies the laws of statistics? When one applies the laws of chance to the proba­bility of an event occurring in Nature, such as the formation of a single protein molecule from the elements, even if we allow three billion years for the age of the earth or more, there isn’t enough time for the event to occur. Only by postulating a directional Force with a purposeful end can we account for the harmony and order which have come from chaos.

A LOOK BEHIND THE “NATURAL LAWS” (C. 1958)

If the brightest scientific minds through the centuries have studied to learn, by observations of great complexity, the existence and behavior of the various entities, it must follow that the intelli­gence of the One who designed these in the first place sur­passes the integrated value of human intelligence to date.

THE GREAT DESIGNER (C. 1958)

The most funda­mental rational reason for my belief in God is one which has been greatly bolstered by my engineering experience. Modern physics shows me that Nature is unable to order herself.
