Aristotle, Philosophy and Logic
Alexander the great conquered the Middle East from Greece to India from 336 to 323 B.C.
Alexander was tutored by Aristotle who in turn had been taught by Plato, and as he conquered, Alexander spread the concepts of Plato and Aristotle’s logic far and wide. Since that time the logic of Plato and Aristotle took deep root in the Western World and over time both the Rabbins and the professing Christians in Rome applied the logic of Aristotle to the Holy Scriptures, interpreting the scriptures through human reasoning in place of taking the Holy Scriptures literally.
When examining an argument ALWAYS first address the basic premise on which the logic is based. All logic whether good or bad is based on a foundational premise. If the premise is true and the logic is faultless then the conclusions will be true, however if the premise is false even the most perfect logic will be wrong.
An example of this is the claim by the proponents of evolution that “the evolution of the peppered moth is an evolutionary instance of color variation in the moth population as a consequence of the Industrial Revolution. The concept refers to an increase in the number of dark-colored moths due to industrial pollution, and a reciprocal decrease in the population in a clean environment”. During the industrial revolution in Britain because of soot darkening the vegetation the dark colored peppered moths began to dominate as the white moths began to die out.
If this is truly an example of evolution, the white moths would have had to evolve darker to cope with the environment. Did this happen or did BOTH the light and dark colored moths already exist at the beginning of that period?
In fact both the light colored and dark colored moths already existed and because the light colored ones began to stand out on the darker vegetation while the darker ones were well hidden, predators concentrated on the lighter colored moths. There was absolutely NO evolution at all! Instead of evolving, the lighter colored moths died out; which does not prove evolution but to the contrary tends to prove that evolution is not true at all.
This spurious argument is an example of twisting a fact, to falsely appear to support the preconceived premise.
Another example of assumptions is the Coelacanth, a fish previously declared to have become extinct some 65,000,000 years ago. It is said that fossils of this fish have been found which are 400,000,000 years old. Since that unsupported claim, these fish have been found ALIVE, near Indonesia and Australia. Evolutionists call this fish “a living fossil” sure proof of evolution. In this they are clearly showing their bias and predisposition to believe what they want.
This fish is completely identical to its fossils; there is absolutely NO DIFFERENCE between this fish and it’s fossils: Where is the evolution? there has been NO evolution whatsoever over the claimed 400,000,000 years! Yet they falsely claim that this is proof of evolution!
By starting with the assumed premise that evolution is true, they reach a false conclusion.
In the search for truth one must put all the facts together, without twisting the facts to appear to support a preconceived premise; when in reality they actually disprove that preconceived premise.
Evolution is faith based fantasy which depends on deception as in the above examples
I Exist Therefore God Exists
René Descartes (1596-1650 A.D.) is today considered the father of modern philosophy, but he was himself a champion of the logic of Aristotle and Plato. Lecturers in philosophy courses are fond of quoting Descartes “I think therefore I exist” statement as a starting point for their Aristotelian logic.
This premise is sound, but then they use the logic of Aristotle to focus on humanity while ignoring this premise in relation to the existence of God. If Descartes premise that “I think therefore I exist” is sound; then the premise that “I exist therefore God exists” is also sound!
The existence of thought itself, the existence of man and the existence of all things; is proof of the existence of God! Let us put our premise and logic to the test.
Where Did You Come From?
We all have a biological father and mother; because two fully functional persons coming together are necessary to make a new human being. Genesis 1:27 . . . male and female created he them. All the higher animals were created male and female and one fully functional and fertile example of each sex must meet together with the same idea to produce offspring.
That is reality my friends, the female cannot exist without the male, and the male cannot exist without the female, because the species cannot be reproduced without BOTH being present.
Why do you think that evolutionists have spent generations brainwashing our children that it is impossible to answer the question “which came first the chicken or the egg” when the answer is so glaringly obvious; The chicken came first because it takes TWO, a male and a female [a rooster and a hen] to produce a fertile egg! The same is true of an elephant, or a buffalo or a human being.
Evolution is impossible, because reproduction and the continuation of species is impossible. without both sexes being fully formed, fully functional and present together in the same place at the same time.
When Did Life Begin?
Many have said that life begins with the first drawn breath, while others claim that life begins at a certain number of weeks after egg fertilization; when does life really begin.
Through history there have been many childless women because either the husband of the wife is infertile or the wife is infertile. To procreate it is not enough to have a male and a female come together; they must both be fertile.
One may bathe all the eggs one wants in dead sperm and none of them will be fertilized and produce a child; on the other side one may bathe a dead egg in trillions of live sperm and that egg will never be fertilized to produce a child. What does this mean?
It means that both the sperm from the male and the egg from the female must already have life in them. It means that humanity had life given to both men and women at some point and they have passed on that already existing life in themselves to their offspring!
Life does not begin at birth or at conception, human life began with the first man, and has been passed on by the first man and woman down from generation to generation ever since!
The egg has the life of the woman when it is produced by the woman, and the sperm has the life of the man when it is produces by the man; and then when a sperm fertilizes an egg the life of both the woman and the man are joined together to form a new human being.
The eggs or sperm which do not join together are discarded as cells of the owner as one discards clipped hair or nails, but once combined they form a completely new human being who will never again be duplicated precisely [except for a certain type of twins formed from the same egg and sperm].
Mankind and all higher animals were created male and female, both sexes being created complete, fully formed, fully fertile and fully functional at the same time; and then life was placed in them: which same life has continued from generation to generation from the very beginning of their creation.
The existence of humanity proves the existence of God.
The hypothesis of evolution requires vast eons of time to make it appear credible, so vast ages are assigned to various fossils and to the earth itself. There is NO scientific way to measure such vast ages of time! Carbon 14 is based on assumptions and when assumptions enter, true science leaves. The assumption that the amount of radiation striking the earth to form carbon 14 is a constant, is well known to be false. The amount of radiation striking the earth is strongly influenced by solar activity, the distance to the sun and the strength of the earth’s magnetic field. After three half lives of about 15,000 total years, there is not enough carbon 14 to even be measured! How can you get millions of years from that? You can’t!
Other dating methods like potassium argon are even LESS reliable. Material from Hawaii known to be 200 years old was dated as many millions of years old by this method. In addition to the assumptions on dating, evolution breaks every known applicable law of science, including the law of Biogenesis which I went into when discussing male and female.
The difference between an ape skull and a human skull. An ape skull has a brow ridge across the face just above the eyes, a human skull does not. If a skull has a brow ridge it is an ape and if it does not it is human.
No intermediate species has ever been found for any creature, if evolution were true there would have to be more intermediate species fossils for earth’s many millions of creatures than there are atoms in the universe, NONE have ever been found.
Many people do not know that evolution is a very ancient philosophy espoused by the Epicureans of ancient Greece and put forward by Epictetus if not much earlier. In thousands of years, not enough evidence has been found to even justify giving this hypothesis, the dignity of the title, theory!
Evolution is an error which along with atheism and all false religions will soon be discarded on the trash heap of history!
The Evil of Religion
Many have looked at this world seeing that many of its horrors are perpetrated in the name of a God or religion, and they see the incredible evils that religion has brought and make the mistake of blaming God for those evils.
In reality, God’s Word and ways bring peace, prosperity and life, if only people would live by them; while the obvious evils perpetrated in the name of God are not godly at all and are a departure from the Word of God.
Many religions of man do not accept the Word of God and instead rely directly on the philosophies and traditions of men, many of them very well meaning men. In a similar way most of today’s Rabbins and professing Christians hold to the false premise that the Holy Scriptures are to be interpreted by the logic and traditions of men and are not meant to be literal. Then using human logic they replace the truth of God – which brings peace and life – with the traditions of men, causing much suffering because man simply does not know the way to peace apart from the wisdom of God.
Men pay lip service to God but make the Word of God of no effect through their reasoning’s, as to why God’s Word does not mean what it says.
Matthew 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 15:9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
These men professing to be godly misuse Isaiah’s “here a little, there a little” instruction to search for scriptures appearing to support their preconceived conclusions instead of putting ALL the scriptures on a given subject together as Isaiah had intended. This is why I have done line by line studies through the entire Bible at the world news and prophecy site as a foundation for the Biblical Studies at this site.
One can make any book mean anything, if one takes lines or words out of their proper context and selects only those words that appear to support a preconceived idea, it is only by putting all scriptures together on a particular subject that a truth can be found and understood.
In truth it is those religions which do not adhere to every Word of God and attempt to interpret the Word of God according to the false traditions and reasoning’s of men that have brought such sorrow on this world.
When men do things their own way and not God’s way, even well intentioned men; the end of the matter is much sorrow and death, because man just does not have the wisdom of God.
Yes, God exists and we can rejoice in that truth, because it brings hope!
Many intelligent people when they age and the pleasures of self-indulgent youth fade, ask themselves “Is this all there is.” When the vigor of youth and self gratification has run its course and we get older, finally realizing that our life is almost over, the only meaningful question is “Is this all there is?”
Those who live by every Word of God will avoid many of the sorrows of sin in this life and they can stand on the sure promises of God. They have HOPE in God and His promises that God will raise his faithful up from death to eternal life in a far, far, better world.
