Unleashing God's Truth, One Verse at a Time

Does It Really Matter?
Origins & the Meaning of Life

Code: B100422

Meaninglessness is a banner that hangs over the West. It’s as if Western culture has become one big illustration of Solomon’s frustration in Ecclesiastes—“I said in my heart, ‘Come now, I will test you with pleasure; enjoy yourself.’ But behold, this also was vanity” (Eccl. 2:1).

Evolutionary theory and naturalism lead to nihilism, and nihilism leads to absolute futility and utter despair. That sequence is clearly evident in Western cultures. It’s a silent pandemic, largely ignored, that can be traced back to the judgment described in Romans 1:18-32.

Since “wisdom is justified by all her children” (Luke 7:35), what can we say about the “wisdom” of a purely naturalistic, evolutionary approach to science? Why do Christian scientists practice science within the boundaries of naturalistic, evolutionary presuppositions?
