The real war in this world is not what you might think. The wars that make the news, and the suffering and injustice you see around you, are merely consequences of a very real, lethal, and invisible war that every one of us is deeply involved in. The first step toward long term victory is to realize that you are in in it … totally … whether you want to or not.
Despite former astronaut Julie Payette’s incredulity over people who still question whether the origin of life was by divine intervention or by some random natural process, there are other astronauts who believe there is a Creator, including the shuttle pilot for one of the missions she participated in.
Even a former astronaut can confuse scientism with science. Scientism is essentially atheism dressed up in a lab coat. The result is an unquestioning faith in the belief that science can explain everything, including the origin of love, beauty, and even nature itself.
The discovery of extraterrestrial life could be the death knell for atheism, at least for the thinking atheist. On the other hand, it should not be at all surprising for someone holding the Christian world view that God is the creator of life in the universe.
