ART & DESIGN
by Skip Heitzig
For the most part,
in pop culture the idea of evolution is a closed case. If you ask the average person on the street, they’ll say, “Everybody knows that we evolved. That idea of creation was disproven a long time ago. It’s a done deal.” However, there are many people in the academic world who have difficulties with evolution. They’ve done the research, they’ve got the hard facts, and they find it an untenable position. Dr. Michael Denton, a British biochemist, wrote a book called Evolution: A Theory in Crisis, in which he said that evolutionary theory “is still, as it was in Darwin’s time, a highly speculative hypothesis, entirely without direct factual support.” When Charles Darwin wrote the Origin of Species, he knew that he had one glaring problem. He knew the fossil record was against him because no “transitional forms” between species had been found. But he believed that, given enough time, evidence would come to support his theory. Well, the evidence hasn’t come, but the theory persists.
On the other hand, let’s look at an argument for the existence of God. When you see a building, you naturally assume that an architect designed it, and a contractor built it. But what if I told you this: “No, you’re wrong. Here’s what happened. Some chemicals collided, and some explosions happened, and randomly, over millions of years, it just oozed out of the ground.” You would say, “You need a long vacation, Skip! That’s ridiculous!” And if I asked why, you’d say, “Because any design like this points to a designer. There are architectural plans somewhere, and an architect behind that design, and a builder who carried them out.”
“...There are architectural plans somewhere, and an architect behind that design, and a builder who carried them out.”
Now, that would be wise. And the complexities of the human body, and biological forms of all kinds, are much more complicated than a building. To say “It just randomly happened over time” isn’t as tenable
as you’ve been led to believe. We call this the teleological argument for the existence of God. We can see by the design that there is a Designer. Genesis 2:4 says, “This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.” Before you go to bed tonight, if it’s a clear night, walk outside. Look up and check out the sky. Think of all those stars and how far they are out there. It’s a beautiful sight. But what I want you to consider is this: If the art that is displayed in the skies is that beautiful, what must the Artist be like? That is the theme of the entire Bible, to point us to the Creator. Now listen to how ridiculous this sounds: “It just so happens that the earth and the sun are 93 million miles apart. It’s just a coincidence.” But the surface temperature of the sun is 12,000 degrees Fahrenheit. If the earth were as close to the sun as Venus, we’d all burn up. If it were as far as Mars, we’d all freeze. “It just so happens that the earth revolves 365 times in its annual journey around the sun.” Why 365? Why not 30 times? Because then the days would be ten times longer, and the alternate periods of cold and heat would kill us. We couldn’t survive. “It just so happens that the atmosphere is a combination of 79 parts nitrogen to 20 parts oxygen to 1 percent variant gases.” But what if it was 50 percent oxygen? The first guy to light a match would see the biggest—and last—fireworks display in history.
We call this the teleological argument for the existence of God. We can see by the design that there is a Designer.
You see, the more you go through it, the more you realize it didn’t “just so happen.” It was just so designed. This wasn’t the result of spontaneous generation. God created the heavens and the earth. Listen to astronomer Sir Frederick Hoyle: “The probability of spontaneous generation of a single bacterium is the same as the probability that a tornado sweeping through a junk yard could assemble a 747 from the contents therein.” No, it just doesn’t make sense. The design points to the Designer. God is the Designer, the Architect, the Creator. “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1).

Dorothy Savage was at the deathbed of both her mother and her sister, just two of the valleys in a life filled with challenging and difficult moments. Yet through those trials she learned that although life is messy, God is faithful; though we are often weak, He is strong; and though life often hurts, God is the God of all comfort. She’s taken those lessons and put them into her music in her debut album, “Glorious Mess,” debuting March 30. Oh, she also has a house that’s all pink and was featured on HGTV.

This one-time member of DC Talk has just released his fourth solo CD called “Tonight.” Featuring guests ranging from John Cooper of Skillet to Beckah Shae to Grammy winner Israel Houghton, it’s a party packed with everything from soulful worship to jammin’ party tunes. Toby is currently touring with Skillet on the Awake Tonight tour, which also features House of Heroes. Plus, you can be sure there’s a remix coming for “Tonight” sometime in the near future.
The muchanticipated new album from Demon Hunter, “The World is a Thorn,” hits stores March 9. What’s the new album all about? Well, according to the band, in a world where it’s becoming more and more despicable to be a Christian, where subjective truth, self-love, unrestricted perversion, and the destruction of morality seem to be the rule of the day, this album is the “antithesis of the modern way of life.”
John Reuben’s latest album has had some trouble getting air time, in large part due to its title, “Sex, Drugs and Self-Control.” However, Reuben says the inspiration for this album comes from the fact that he feels the most creative when he’s closest to God. “It’s only that certain spiritual disciplines seem freeing and inspiring instead of restrictive.” Along with the new album, he’s also touring extensively this year, and he even made a stop in Santa Fe in January.
Currently holding the record for longest title of a song on M88, FM Static’s current single is called “Boy Moves to a New Town With Optimistic Outlook,” and it’s also an introduction to a creative concept album from Trevor McNevan. Although FM Static shares some of the same key members of Thousand Foot Krutch, Trevor says the FM Static side project gives him the opportunity to explore more creative and risky musical ideas, like an album that’s based on someone’s diary. Look for “Dear Diary” from FM Static, in stores now.
Matt Papa summed up what he and his music are all about by saying, “If you can write a song that’s full of God’s words, and that song gets into someone’s head, that’s a powerful thing.” He’s currently touring through churches and festivals across the nation, and his new album, “Your Kingdom Come,” is out now.
The family band known as The Birdsongs got their start in an unusual way; they sold all they had, bought an RV and hit the road to minister to people through their music. They’ve been doing that for a little more than a decade. Their “Celestial Stationary” EP is available now.
Their song “Save the World” has been one of the most requested songs at M88 since it started playing. This San Antonio group says they set out to create music that can be enjoyed by people from all walks of life, but which ultimately points back to life, love and faith in God. The group is currently touring through Texas, and their new EP “Until Then” is available now.

The Real-Time Web
ow do you get your news? Do you still read the Albuquerque Journal? Are you tuning in to channel 7 or
news must go through those channels to be delivered to your home. It reminds me of the Rainbo Bread Bakery outlet on Montano. They are selling lovely loaves of tasty, dayold bread. There is nothing wrong with the bread—in fact it is just as tasty as its fresh counterpart—it is just older and can’t be marketed as fresh. What type of news are you consuming? Day-old news or live, as-it-is-happening content? That is what the Real-Time Web brings you. It’s like standing there as the baker pulls out the bread, taking the loaf from his hot pan, buttering it up and eating it. How does this happen? What can make the Web, “real-time?” Imagine if you gave nearly every human a communication device and allowed them to report on any news
13 at 6 and 10 PM to find out what’s going on in the area? A new concept in receiving news is rapidly growing on the internet. It is called the Real-Time Web. By definition, the Real-Time Web is a set of technologies and practices which enable users to receive information as soon as it is published by its authors, rather than requiring that they or their software check a source periodically for updates. (Source: Wikipedia) Newspapers have been suffering in the last several years because they have no choice but to publish dayold news. The limitation of delivering news in this way is that it’s dependent upon the printing press, delivery trucks and paperboys. Every bit of their
Newspapers have been suffering in the last several years because they have no choice but to publish day-old news.
People who are at the scene of breaking news can report it moments after it happens and continue reporting as it develops. they are involved in. People who are at the scene of breaking news can report it moments after it happens and continue reporting as it develops. That communication device is a mobile phone and the ability to report is as simple as sending a text message. There are Web sites like WhatTheTrend.com that allow you to find out what the “trending topics” are right now, and what is being reported on those particular news items. A site called CoverItLive.com allows people attending a scheduled event or conference to “live blog” about what is happening where they are. Twitter, a microblogging site, allows its users to put “hash tags” into their tweets (e.g., #Olympics is hot as I write this), so visitors can tune into a stream of real-time micro posts coming live out of a particular event. Google has incorporated into its search results a section called, “Latest Results for…” It allows you to watch the Real-Time Web produce new results for your search query in… well, real-time. Twitter.com provides Real-Time Web results by just searching for a topic. It’ll provide you with immediate results and then continue to aggregate results for you as they are pulled out of the oven, so to speak. Although I’m rather fond of Rainbo’s day-old bread, I prefer to be able to get “piping-hot,” fresh news for the topics I’m interested in. And with the Real-Time Web I can do just that. Too bad I can’t put any butter on it and eat it.

“Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). The life and testimony of John MacArthur illustrates this biblical truth. John, a fifth-generation pastor who learned his characteristic expository teaching style from his father, grew up in what is now South Central Los Angeles. Though he was not particularly disobedient, his childhood curiosity and boldness motivated his parents to prayer on his behalf. Those same traits, harnessed by the Lord, influence his study and presentation of the scripture.

eared in a home where his parents consistently modeled genuine faith in
Church in Sun Valley, California. From the beginning of his ministry, he has been concerned about those who do not know the Lord. His teachings are marked with core truths of the faith, and are presented in an uncompromising manner. In 1985, he became the president of the Master’s College, and he founded The Master’s Seminary graduate school in 1986. John is also the president of Grace to You, the organization that develops, produces, and distributes his messages, including the Grace to You radio broadcast. Grace to You can be heard weekdays on KNKT at 9AM, and Grace to You Weekend airs Sundays at 7 PM.

Christ, John can’t put a finger on when his conversion took place. He does, however, recall the convicting power of the Holy Spirit throughout his life. John was very athletic as a youth, and that competitive spirit and diligence transferred easily to his spiritual life, as he “run[s] in such a way as to get the prize” (1 Corinthians 9:24). After a serious car accident during college, he recognized the Lord was dealing with him, and firmly grasped the call to the ministry. In 1969, John graduated with honors from Talbot Theological Seminary and became pastor-teacher at Grace Community

wish I had kept my fifth-grade science book. It had a terrific graph showing a strange little fox-like creature who eventually ended up as Mr. Ed, the talking horse from TV.
Books from that point on carried variations on that theme, and it was just assumed that this evolutionary chain was bedrock fact. Of course, we know now that no transitional forms exist to support this chart. This is just one of the many credibility problems I have discovered with evolution since fifth grade. Here are a few more: Charles Darwin assumed that transitional forms would be discovered in the future, but they do not exist. An example of a transitional form would be the discovery of a half-fish, halfman skeleton. Evolution demands that this “missing link” must have existed somewhere, sometime (besides fifth grade science books), like in the fossil record.
“If my theory be true, numberless intermediate varieties, linking most closely all the species of the same group together, must assuredly have existed.” – Charles Darwin, Origin of Species
“In my most extreme fluctuations I have never been an Atheist in the sense of denying the existence of a God.” – Letters of Charles Darwin
That’s hedging your bet, Charles. On the other hand, there is something known as practical atheism:
“The Old Testament from its manifestly false history of the world, with the Tower of Babel, the rainbow as a sign, etc., etc., and from its attributing to God the feelings of a revengeful tyrant, was no more to be trusted than the sacred books of the Hindoos, or the beliefs of any barbarian.”— Autobiography of Charles Darwin
Ouch. Painful scholarship, and embarrassing for Darwin apologists on so many levels.
its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.” - Charles Darwin, Origin of Species
A rare moment of honest clarity for Charles. Consider: •Your eyes are composed of more than two million working parts. •They can process 36,000 bits of information every hour. •Number of fibers in human optic nerve = 1,200,000 •You will see 24 million images of the world around you in a normal lifespan. •The human eye can detect over 10 million different colors. •There are 120 million rod cells in the retina of your eye. In the glaring light of reality, it is stunning that Darwin’s theory has so many fans. Perhaps it is only out of desperate agnosticism that this absurd theory has been dressed up, propped up and allowed to be such a pretender of truth. Enough. 17
“There is no fundamental difference between man and the higher mammals in their mental faculties.” - Charles Darwin, Descent of Man
As with many of Darwin’s positions, the best response is often, “Speak for yourself.”
“Now I have never systematically thought much on religion in relation to science, or on morals in relation to society.” - Letters of Charles Darwin
That would be true for Darwin and Planned Parenthood.
