Scientist when asked to bet their money will always bet on a Scientific Law over a Scientific Theory, every time, if reliability is the question. Yet they are telling Christian children they can bet their soul that the creation story in Genesis is wrong…based on a theory.
The honest thing would be to do what they do with their money. If the bet counts, it is a better bet to bet on creation over evolution. The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that for the beginning of order you need a beginner…for such a thing as a Universe, God is the most logical choice.
Even though a scientist may be unwilling to lose his money; he is willing to lose his soul. This type of thinking is called “magical thinking” and it is described in this quote by Jean Kim.
In psychology, magical thinking is a term referring to a type of primitive rationalization used by children, before maturity brings about abstract thinking. This thinking can seem innocent and endearing in children; if you will it, it will be. There is a simple optimism in the notion that anything can happen if you want it to. It’s only the brick wall of logic that brings the fantasy ride to a bracing halt; adulthood teaches us that there are laws to the world around us that we, for better or worse, have to adapt to. (Jean Kim MD/Daily Beast)
There is no scientific Santa Claus bearing non-God particles for the atheist…there is only the Second Law of Thermodynamics which states “order out of chaos” cannot happen. We have not observed it, it is a Law that cannot be violated and we will not observe it…according to every scientist. It is conceivable, that it could be proven, at some time in the future that the Second Law of Thermodynamics is a theory. But for now, of the two, the “Big Bang” is the theory and “no order from chaos” is the Law.
