Games Some People Play |

A leading evolutionary scientist has made a revealing admission. Richard Dickerson, an authority in chemical evolution and a professing theist, has said: ‘Science, fundamentally, is a game. It is a game with one overriding and defining rule.  Rule No. 1: Let us see how far and to what extent we can explain the behavior of the physical and material universe in terms of purely physical and material causes, without invoking the supernatural.’

Thus, evolutionary ‘science’ is not necessarily a search for truth, as we used to be told, but a game in which scientists try to find naturalistic causes, even for the origin of the universe and all in it.

At the conclusion of a creation/evolution debate in which I participated some years ago, a professor in the audience said, in effect: ‘You may well be right; special creation is probably the truth and evolution is wrong.  Nevertheless, evolution is science, and creation is religion, so only evolution should be taught in schools.’  Not every  evolutionist is as frank, but this really is the game they play.
