A Problem of Probability

A Universal Question

Concerning the question of the origin of man, many different theories hoping to explain this question have been presented over time. When boiled down to their base components, there are only two real origin scenario options:

  • Option #1: Spontaneous generation (something coming from nothing)
  • Option #2: Intelligent design

An honest and logical assessment of known scientific law makes only one of these two options possible. So which option is more probable?

Modern Prophecy?

A Claim of Authority

There are many modern religious groups who claim their authority for religious practices by the revelation of prophecy in the modern era. This authority takes on varied forms, from “latter day” gospels, to inspired “prophets” or leaders, to “speaking in tongues.”

What Makes You Blush?

Emotional People

Human beings are creatures of emotion. Although it may differ by individual, we all betray our feelings and thoughts in various ways. In sadness it is common to cry tears, or at the very least a fallen countenance. In happiness a smile, a grin, even a laugh. When embarrassed, it is common for a rush of blood to flood the cheeks creating a blush.

Concern Over Security

An Insecure World

The world in which we live is an insecure place. This reality has caused much concern and angst in the neighborhoods where we live. The need to feel secure has caused many men and women to seek out any source to provide them with the promise, or at least the illusion of security.

An Impossible Burden to Carry

Establishing Proof

Within the American legal system, it is considered the proper standard for people accused of a crime to be assumed innocent until proven guilty. This means that the party prosecuting the crime must establish, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the accused was indeed guilty of the crime. Meeting this requirement is known as meeting the “burden of proof.”
