“The Principle” challenges scientific orthodoxy – and the place of God & man in the cosmos

Gavin McInnesRebel Commentator

On my latest show, I talked with Rick DeLano, whose documentary "The Principle" is about whether or not the Copernican view of the universe is wrong.

The Copernican theory is one of THE scientific orthodoxies, so questioning it means the movie has been denounced by some people already.

We talk about whether or not religion and science are compatible. (I think it's a lazy cliche to claim they aren't.)

Amazing how this article vaporized from the Rebel front page. Poof.

No one is a better debater with Atheists than William Lane Craig who has in the words of Sam Harris “put the fear of God in atheists”. He is not only articulate and humorous but very quick witted and has a broad scholarly knowledge on a vast amount of topics. He not only argues well but is able to explain the logical fallacy effectively that the person he is debating is employing. On explaining the fine tuning of the universe Robin Collins is excellent. On the topic of atheism and it’s scientific pretensions few are better than the agnostic David Berrlinski

As a diabetic I realized that evolution could not work. If my blood sugar is not correct I’m dead in a couple of hours or in a couple of years. I don’t get a million years for my cells to figure it out. (Which of course assumes that my cells are intelligent rational beings with the power to affect change over themselves in some magical process).

Another issue is that males and females of a species would have to have all reproductive systems on hand from the first instant or their could be no procreation. If they don’t have the same systems at the same time and at the same level of development- no reproduction. Positing a million years doesn’t make it more possible it makes it impossible.

This can be repeated on so many items that the unreasonableness of it is overwhelming. I don’t need vast complex theories to try to explain what cannot work. I just need common sense reasoning to discount the impossible and to reaffirm the most likely scenario.

Another proof of God, or possibly a higher intelligence in DNA on a quantum level is the Stick Mimicking Mantis. its so amazing its a bit scary actually. I sort of fear that we will see some mantis look like a human hiding in cities around America. It seems to be able to copy just about anything else. Clearly Evolution is false, And God is a master mind with a flare for the dramatic.

You want to see some proof of God.
Look at the Dead leaf butterfly. With so many butterflies able to exist, there is no logic or science to make a case for a butterflys DNA to slowly alter over time to look exactly like that leaf. Clearly Butterflies before that less looking like that leaf survived or that leaf look alike wouldn’t be, theoretically.

The more obvious answer is, that DNA unable to see, unable to know how to manipulate DNA to make its host hosting the DNA to look like something was created by God.
One other theory popped into my mind that if a leaf eating butterfly ate the leaf, the DNA would have a copy of that leaf, the leafs DNA, and some how it plagiarizes some of that DNA code. But still IF that was possible, their would have to be a whole lot more going on in DNA than we realize, almost human, almost alive itself able to make decisions with a type of brain etc. Now to me that would be a stretch suggesting that at a quantum level their is stuff going on and coding behind the coding far more advanced than we could ever imagine.
I think its must safer to say that God Created the whole system of DNA and their are variables and switches and to a great degree he knows the possible outcomes and limits and they are pre-programmed into DNA such that they are not in and of themselves living beings but chemically based machines unaware.
The Dead leaf butterfly among other things proves God is an Artist, a Master designer, engineer and Architect.

Science and God. We want to present it as some source of conflict.

The person who recognizes God in creation, in the beauty of the world, and in the encounter with others, knows that God is also present in the other person.

The person who explores nature, who even adheres to a scientific view of nature, ends up discovering God.

Sometimes on The Rebel people suppose that their is no God.

When they have their senses about them they are more realistic.

Well no matter what your belief is, God or who or whatever created the universe must be disappointed when they see that we have developed to a point where we have the internet and people use it for spam.

Science in many ways has left Science as a Science and has le’pt off the bridge into Junk Science to save face. Religion or No Religion.

Look at the Big Bang Junk Science. The ‘observable universe’ supposedly 93 billion light years wide or about 45 billion light years to one side from our perspective, so it could be far larger. The Problem with that number is that there is no way from a big bang that any matter could travel 45 billion light years in just 14.5 billion years. Even with expanding space it wouldn’t couldn’t happen and anything like that would be impossible to see because like the simple train math question the math doesn’t add.
If you have a train traveling 100 mile per hr. going south, and you throw a ball out the back of the train North going 100 miles and hr. in relation to the ground the ball is not moving. So if you have stars traveling away from us 3 times the speed of light, and the star shines light toward us at the speed of light, the light will be going 2 times the speed of light the other way. Meaning we could not see most of the observable universe. AND, the light we see from some stars would be stalled in space reaching us like a slow moving train. And other light a bit faster etc. They don’t even know when the train left the station,,on light because light is always leaving the station. So the place that the stars where when the light left is different from where the stars are, but one could not possibly know where that is. Because you cannot do any sort of triangulation from light so far away, and they should know that if they had done any type of transit work.
Its so bad that they think that a packet of energy can stretch over time because of expanding space. Even worse, they don’t even realize many of them that there is no such thing as a wave in electricity. That its just a mapping on a graph plotting points not an actual wave. So when they describe light as a wave God knows what they are actually saying because it makes no sense.

One question. Why do only humans have a quantum computer in their heads?

I saw The Principle trailer on Church Militant .com, been waiting a long time. If God was a mind he’d have an IQ of 200 to the 100th power, but he’s not any type of being. Einstein was an atheist before he converted to Catholic. He said “Too many things can’t be explained by science.” I’m goin to get my DVD

If you want to hear logic on the Catholic position on science and faith, then listen to Fr. Robert Spitzer, SJ, PHD (bio: Philosophy of Science, particularly space-time theory and transcendent implications of contemporary big bang cosmology, (2) metaphysics, particularly the theory of time and philosophy of God). [He was on] Larry King Live (debating Stephen Hawking, Leonard Mlodinow, and Deepak Chopra on God and modern physics)
Fr. Spitzer is a scientist, but he is the most down-to-earth and modest man. He is losing his sight and yet, he can still laugh at himself.
He has a program on EWTN on Wednesday at 2pm (live) and Thurs at 10pm. Just terrific.
