Over the past couple of weeks I have watched documentaries on the lives of both David Suzuki and Stephan Hawking, men who are highly esteemed around the world for their knowledge and we have to thank them for proving what the Scriptures say. But I don’t believe they are rightly interpreting what they have learned.
David Suzuki tells us that everything happening in our climate can be laid at the feet of human greed but today we were greeted with this spectacular news. In Mexico, in a water filled cave, the skeleton of a young woman, and several prehistoric animals were found. They date back to the end of the first ice age.
What was that statement again? DATING BACK TO THE END OF THE FIRST ICE AGE. I would like Suzuki to explain to me what caused the end of that ice age, since it was before the industrial revolution, before human kind was drilling for oil and polluting the planet with carbon. Global warming? Whatever his answer, our planet has been in transition for a long time.
I highly respect Stephen Hawking as a person who has been living with ALS since he was twenty and still maintains a pleasant attitude. He has made discoveries about the basic building blocks of the universe and discovered how it was possible, he thinks, for creation to come about without the existence of a ‘god’ figure. He discovered that a black hole (in the universe), when it expands too much, folds in on itself and disappears. Since I am not a scientist I don’t understand that.
What I do understand is that everyone knows there is evidence of that first ice age. God knew about it and it was part of God’s plan from the beginning. Don’t you think that the black hole folding in on itself sounds a lot like Isaiah 34:4 and Revelation 6:14 that say: “the sky was rolled up like a scroll…”
II Peter 3:10 states “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.” Suzuki and Hawking spent their lives finding out what Bible readers already knew. Their great discoveries were recorded in God’s history before those men were even born.
I wonder, though, if those brilliant men have missed out on the most important knowledge known to man. God loved us all so much that He sent His Son, the creator of it all, to redeem those who put their trust in Him. In the final end, this environment that Suzuki devoted his life to and the sun, moon and stars that Hawking spent his life exploring, will be gone. That’s when every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. There will be no one and nothing else left to worship. Until then, I will pray that those two men will discover even greater truths.
