The Kingdom of Heaven Is At Hand

Directed Panspermia” is the theory that life may have been sent here by a spaceship from a distant planet. This theory has been suggested by a Nobel Prize winner. Of it, Wayne Grudem, in his Systematic Theology, notes:

It seems ironic that brilliant scientists could advocate so fantastic a theory without one shred of evidence in its favor, all the while rejecting the straightforward explanation given by the one book in the history of the world that has never been proven wrong, that has changed the lives of millions of people, that has been believed completely by many of the most intelligent scholars of every generation, and that has been a greater force for good than any other book in the history of the world. Why will otherwise intelligent people commit themselves to beliefs that seem so irrational?

I’ll tell you why—they’re suppressing the knowledge of God, that’s why. Man, in his natural state, is willing to believe anything as long as it doesn’t require him to humble himself before the God of scripture. One day though, the Holy One of Israel will appear. What a day it will be! There will be no more suppression of who he is. Woe to the man that suppresses the knowledge of God now. Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.

  1. I think your resources may be a little outdated. Panspermia is not currently promoted as to the natural origins of life on Earth. Currently the leading theory is abiogenesis meaning life from inorganic chemical matter. If you’re going to attack the other side, make sure you have the right information first. Everyone wins when they attack straw men rather than their real opponents.

  2. I didn’t say that it was the primary theory of the origin of life, only that it has been promoted by an intelligent man. No straw man there.

    But tell me this, why do you take this as an attack? My point was simply that sinful humanity will go to great lengths to suppress the knowledge of God. Besides, abiogenesis isn’t really that much of a step up from panspermia. It’s actually probably a step down because it’s less likely, and makes less sense. That really helps further my point. Mankind will believe anything, as long as he doesn’t have to bow the knee, and give up his own supremacy, to the King.
