The TRUTH is that there is a spiritual dimension
of the universe containing forces of good & evil influence. If Satan ("ruler" of the bad influences) can
cause a person to ignore the TRUTH of "the Who" of creation (as told by God through the incredible [both intellect & political vision plus strength of leadership] Moses in
the Bible book of Genesis), then it is simple for Satan to have that person have no interest
in God's "Way" of the Redemption of mankind through Jesus. Without a person having
"interest", there is less likelihood of that person "hearing" or reading & coming to
"saving belief" in time to have any earthly impact or eternal advantage. After "interest" comes "willingness" to

"The objective approach of science cannot even reach the subjective, immaterial realm of thoughts, beliefs, and desires. It is only the material world that is governed by physical laws! So, the failure of science to to explain how the immaterial realm affects the material realm is more of a commentary on the limited scope of science."
One of the most important scientists in the world believes in God and is HERE.
The great descriptive natural laws of physics have
allowed the incredible technological evolutions within human society because of the TRUTH of
The second thermodynamic law
of entropy: all systems possessing energy (any system with any warmth or movement)... unless
receiving energy in part from outside sources... will regress over time to the lowest energy state
This is 180 degrees opposite from what must happen
in order to propel the evolving of matter of lower complexity to higher
complexity. Reflect on the high constant energy state required to maintain
the biological workings of a human vs. the lower levels to maintain a bacterium (a germ). The fact
that human hearts beat without failure for decades seems strongly against the law of entropy,
and I think reflects that God causes our hearts to beat as they do. He not
only creates but is creating & sustaining! Quoting the brilliant C. S. Lewis (p 32, The Case for Christianity): "Supposing there was no intelligence behind the universe, no creative mind. In that case, nobody designed my brain for the purpose of thinking. It is merely that when the atoms inside my skull happen, for physical or chemical reasons, to arrange themselves in a certain way, this gives me, as a by-product, the sensation I call thought. But, if so, how can I trust my own thinking to be true? It's like upsetting a milk jug and hoping that the way it splashes itself will give you a map of London. But if I can't trust my own thinking, of course I can't trust the arguments leading to Atheism, and therefore have no reason to be an Atheist, or anything else. Unless I believe in God, I cannot believe in thought: so I can never use thought to disbelieve in God." However, evolutionary adaptation...survival and propagation of the fittest...actually finds "fittest" to mean more efficient. And this fits well with the law of entropy!
One side note: in 2004, scientists from the Max Plank
Institute determined and published the fact that Neanderthal mitochondrial DNA & human
mitochondrial DNA are different..."man" did not descend from Neanderthals,
much less apes! HERE is a 2015 video of an interview with the head researcher. As a TV paleoanthropologic special I saw in May 2008 noted, Cro Magnon
man suddenly came on the evolving adaptational scene with a whole different level of success-producing brainpower. I wonder if this is where God touched into the humanoids & created
Adam & Eve, anatomically modern humans (AMH). And are the Nephilim mentioned in the Bible (Genesis 6:4 & Numbers 13:33)
possibly residual Neanderthal or other less modern descendants? What God told Moses to write down was told into the ears and mind of an amazing man equipped with mental interpretative discernment formed by the historical and social context of that time (Moses' life = 1391–1271 BC). There was absolutely no concept of "science" way back then!
In 2012, Joshua Akey of the University of Washington (Seattle) reported that he identified some mystery DNA in three groups of modern Africans. They already knew that some Neanderthal DNA shows up in some modern Europeans (reported by the Max Plank Institute in 2010).
There is an incomplete but impressive list of scientists who believe in the creationist way and not from-the-beginning evolution (which is different from evolutionary adaptation of that which has been created).
WOW! She precisely states my thinking as to the Creator creating and doing so to insure the creation's ability to evolutionarily adapt! The following comment is from a 1/4/2014 post on his Face Book page to Dr. Charles Krauthammer (brilliant political commentator & thinker and in medical school when an accident paralyzed him) from/by Susan Moses:
"Charles, I appreciate your commentary so much that two of my family members got me your book for Christmas. I've been reading it with few of my expectations unmet. The one thing that I'm consistently surprised at however is your unqualified belief in evolution. I taught public school science for thirty five years beginning as a true believer (in evolution) but the more science that I learned along the way the less the idea remained credible. You comment in your lengthy piece on Embryonic Research of the unfathomable complexity of DNA coupled with the idea that it might take laboratory scientists nearly as long to create it as it took the random accidents of nature (evolution) to have so done."
"Your thinking is generally so precise and logically sound that I was somewhat stunned by the absurdity of the implication of your statement that #1 DNA would require billions of years for the most brilliant minds to create and #2 that it was created in that same amount of time by sheer randomness. It seems to me that anyone who understands the scientific parameters within which physical reality occurs and also understands the truly incomprehensible complexity of life would have to conclude that evolution is the least probable explanation of the origin of life that has ever been proposed. Indeed it is the most improbable, most implausible explanation ever offered. Why then is it so universally accepted? Evolution is simply an accommodation to atheism. If one refuses to accept the possibility of a Creator, then one is by default, an evolutionist. For there are only two possible explanations for existence: nature or super-nature; evolution or God. This is not to say that all evolutionists are atheists but those who are running the show are unequivocal, if not militant, atheists and indeed laugh at the folks who try so desperately to achieve irreconcilable reconciliation."
