God has another plan for our destruction
The world’s craziest creationist – Ken Ham of Answers In Genesis – has attempted to allay the fears of his blog readers that a giant asteroid might one day strike Earth and destroy all life.
He insisted that they should rest assured that the creator already has another plan in place.
Ham, founder of the floundering Noah’s Ark theme park in Williamstown, Kentucky, noted in his blog post that concerns about an “asteroid apocalypse” is rooted in a belief that events that have happened in the past may happen again. He referred to a Discovery Channel video that simulates what it would look like if a 500-kilometer (310-mile) asteroid smashed into the Pacific Ocean.
According to the simulation, such an impact would destroy Earth and vaporise life.
This prompted Ham to ask:
Why is it that evolutionists are so concerned that humanity will someday be catastrophically destroyed? Well, according to man’s ideas about the past, life arose naturalistically and the universe is governed completely by the merciless laws of physics.
According to their worldview, evolutionists contend there isn’t anyone upholding or sustaining the universe. We are simply at the mercy of naturalistic processes.
Also, according to one evolutionary idea about the supposed dinosaur extinction event, a massive asteroid impact wiped out the dinosaurs about 65 million years ago. If such an event happened once before, what’s to stop it from happening again and wiping out humanity this time?
Ham then wrote:
Those who start with the Bible, however, get a completely different picture of Earth’s future because we start with a different picture of Earth’s past.
According to God’s Word, the universe is not here as the result of naturalistic processes. God created the universe and has imposed order on it. The universe is not strictly governed by unfeeling natural laws. God upholds and sustains the universe that He has made (Hebrews 1:3). And we don’t need to worry that an asteroid will obliterate life.
The Bible has already told us how things will end – with judgment from God when Jesus Christ returns to Earth (2 Peter 3:10; Revelation 20:11–15).
Those of us who have trusted in Christ as Savior have no fear of this coming judgment because our penalty for sin has already been paid by Jesus. But instead of fearing some hypothetical asteroid apocalypse, those who refuse to acknowledge Christ as Lord should fear this coming judgment, and it should bring them to repent and put their faith in Christ.
