The next reformation: 500 years too late? (5)
…this [literalist] approach to biblical interpretation encouraged a parallel approach to nature.
The specific connections between Reformation teachings and scientific breakthroughs that have been persuasively documented by Peter Harrison, John Hedley Brooke, and others might also serve as encouragement to expect a similar fruitful confluence of spiritual and natural inquiry in our own day.
The connections from the energy-dependent creation of the sense of smell to the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction in all living genera have not yet been fully explored in the context of how physics, chemistry, and molecular epigenetics must be linked to biophysically constrained viral latency in all living genera. For a glaring example of ignorance, see: Riding the Evolution Paradigm Shift With Eugene Koonin
The entire evolution of the microbial world and the virus world, and the interaction between microbes and viruses and other life forms have been left out of the Modern Synthesis…
The design in viruses is highlighted in many different ways, from being essential during normal developmental processes to being used as novel therapy for treating brain cancer. It is important that we understand the design present in viruses because God made them. All creatures of our God demonstrate his handiwork, and viruses are no different.
Darwin’s book was an attempt to explain how animals and plants arose by natural processes, not the supernatural means revealed and documented for us by the Creator himself in Genesis. Ultimately, this led to the idea that man evolved from ape-like creatures. Armed with this cache of scientific “evidences” that the earth was supposedly millions/billions of years old and that molecules eventually gave rise to man, compromising theologians permeated the church, teaching that Genesis should be treated as myth.
The claim that God created viruses is not made in the context of any Biblical Truth. Claims that link the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA from the physiology of reproduction to all biodiversity fail to address the facts. Darwin’s “conditions of life” have already been linked to everything known about how food energy (i.e., what organisms eat) prevents genomic entropy in the organized genomes of all living genera via the physiology of pheromone-controlled reproduction.
