Product Description

'Chance' and 'Time' are the dear tenets of modern secular science. Given enough chance or time anything can happen...or can it? Both are merely abstractions drawn from observations, categories in which to place things and events, not actual things themselves, and when one places his trust in modern secular concepts of time and chance instead of scripture he may be led to strange conclusions. Here R. C. Sproul (The Holiness of God) addresses the concept of chance as a causal agent, raising questions about the validity of evolutionary reasoning based on such concepts.

    Cretio Ex ExhiloThis work is meant as groundwork in proving absurdity of self creation. That something has always existed. Some reviewers have taken exception that anyscientist claims that there was ever purely nothing. One calls any such statements as hyperbole (deception in my mind). Anyway the argument by some is everythinghas a cause? R.C. Sproul argues this is a fallacy. Something cannot become withoutsomething already existing. One reviewer argues that sub atomical is the nothing something comes from. Anyway one can argue that the atomic level has alreadyexisted or some sub level. One can argue that the Big Bang caused the universe we know. R.C. Sproul argues that the Big Bang did not cause being. R.C. Sproul doesnot accept the Big Bang theory, but the major theme of this book is about the misconception of chance and the origin of the universe from nothing. Therefore hedoes present the Big Bang theory demands an antecedent (something to exist before hand).Chance is not an active knowing being. It is not Mother Nature. It is useful term about probability. R.C. Sproul states that many a scientist talk as if chance cancause something given enough time.The book does not detail how a glob of material floated based on polarity or something colliding in time to cause certain reactions that eventually resulted in theUniverse and existence that you and I know today. Neither do I believe many scientist describe the Big Bang theory this way. It is often explain as some magicaltheory for the cause of all existence (not just the universe). Many in the general public may have this misconception. R.C. Sproul shows the fallacy of suchthinking.R.C.. Sproul believes that God has always existed. He also argues that everything else is caused by God. If God did not exist nothing else would not exist.

    Chance is the unexamined god at the bottom of most naturalistic creation stories. Dr. Sproul shows that chance has no being in a materialist way and then uses this concept to show problems with a number of different theories.
