Welcome to the home of "The Question Evolution Project". There is no truth in minerals-to-man evolution. Evidence refuting evolution is suppressed by the scientific establishment, which is against the true spirit of scientific inquiry. Using an unregistered assault keyboard, articles and links to creation science resources are presented so people can obtain evidence that is not materialistic propaganda. —Established by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Faith in Science of the Gaps

Atheists will tell you that they have no need for religion because they believe in reason and science. If you point out that atheism is a religion, they tend to get on the prod, which shows their ignorance of religion and philosophy. Further, secularists have hijacked science from its biblical basis, and argue from their a priori presuppositions, one of which is the arbitrary assertion that science must be based upon atheistic methodological and philosophical naturalism only. Such assertions are irrational and lead to faulty conclusions.

Also, note the question-begging straw man in the assertion.
Secularists frequently generalize about creationists, claiming that our explanation is "GodDidIt", so there is no need for scientific investigation. This is a lie. There are many creationary scientists who want to learn what makes things work, even how God did something. They take this straw man argument further and say that we use "God of the Gaps" (that is, gaps in our knowledge). Listen up, Pilgrim: everyone has gaps in their knowledge except our Creator, and misrepresenting how we seek to fill those gaps is counterproductive and even bigoted. In fact, they use "Evolution of the Gaps", being certain of evolution and having blind faith in it even though the evidence is lacking or even contrary to what is being discussed.

Science cannot work under an atheistic worldview, which is irrational and incoherent. It can only exist in a biblical worldview, where laws of logic and the constancy of nature make sense. Atheists have some serious problems with their faith-based "Science of the Gaps" approach, especially when it comes to the first cause. If you study on it, you'll see that science does not support atheism.
Atheists often use science to argue that God does not exist because He is no longer required. God was a convenient idea that answered any problem and could never be disproven. In times past, God was needed for the things we couldn’t explain—He was God of the gaps in our knowledge. Now science is closing gaps in our knowledge, and as those gaps disappear, so does God.

Proponents of this argument complain that ‘God did it’ is an unscientific and unreasonable explanation for observations that we make. Theirs is a strong argument against superstitious beliefs in God—i.e. using the supernatural to explain the unknown. When the supernatural is used merely to plug gaps, it will of course disappear when the gaps disappear. We no longer need Thor to explain thunder and lightning, because discovering electricity provided a natural explanation. We don’t need Poseidon either, because we now know the wind and moon cause waves and tides.
