Chapter 3 “But there are proffered archaeological discoveries which, despite having been claimed for centuries and having received the applause of countless millions of laypeople over this vast period of time, have never been accepted in archaeological circles, for one reason and one reason alone. It is not that the archaeological discipline has a conspiracy to conceal fact; rather it is that credible evidence of the “discovery” has never been provided.” (quoted from Holy Relics)When I hear a statement such as this, I wonder if that person is really living on the same planet.
I’m certain the Standishes might be able to present an example of this, but I’m just as certain, especially after having firsthand experience with secular scientists, (archaeologists, geologists, etc), that their assessment is only half correct. Not only do many scientists stand as obstacles against artifacts and evidence that has been discovered, but they do their utmost to suppress the evidence. The theory of evolution is not merely a theory, it’s a religion, a sacred cow that you dare not criticise lest you be scorned as ignorant. If the Standishes cannot see this, it is only because they choose not to. For most scientists their religion is at stake, any evidence that would jeopardize this is suppressed.
I have in my own collection, samples of large human remains, physical evidence that clearly reveals human beings as tall as 15ft. Most in the scientific community pooh pooh the very thought, as it strikes down their own theory of human development. Like God’s word declares, “And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation. For this they are willingly ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, the earth standing out of the water and in the water, (2Pe 3:4-5).
To be willing ignorant means to look away at the very evidence in front of you, to deny its existence. It is by design that many choose this course. Many scientists, especially in the earths science field, have their own agenda. At times their very livelihood may be at stake, so espousing the corporate line is in their best interest. There are still today proven mistakes in science textbooks, misleading statements, falsified reports, and outright lies. This is due almost without exception to an attempt to preserve a theory of belief.
