I think I was about 11 when I figured out that there was something wrong in the world. There was a girl in my school, Judy Haskell, who was a year older than me. She was as healthy as we were, she bounded, played, had a great time. She started feeling sick, went to the doctor, had leukemia, put up a pretty good fight for awhile and then died.
Now although to this day I understand the biology involved in disease, something in me screams, "It shouldn't be happening". Like this week I'm in the ICU in Children's Hospital with a three year old little boy, we're asking God for a miracle and I understand the biology in the disease, but it doesn't stop something in me that says it shouldn't be happening.
And I'd just like to point out the silly in the secular because South Park does such a good job of pointing out the silly in Christianity. If natural evolution is really what's going on here and that's the real story, why are we trying to cure anyone of anything? Because wouldn't it be that nature has decided that it's your turn to die so we can evolve? So why are we spending trillions of dollars on trying to heal diseases when nature, for some reason, is trying to off some of us?
I mean, we're going, "We've got to cure cancer. We've got to cure AIDS." Well how do you reconcile that if there is no God, if there is no Imago Dei? If something hasn't gone wrong, why are you trying to fix it? Why are we in Darfur? Why are we digging water wells? What are we taking food over there? "Well, there's oppression."
Well wait a minute. If it's just natural selection then that belief system says in order for us to be all that God would have us to be, the weak have to die, they have to be oppressed and killed by the strong. So you know it, and I'm not just talking about Christians. Everybody knows something is wrong here.
