Q: What is meant by “impossible people”?

A: Recently a program about how life supposedly arose on earth was on television. The famous science fiction writer, Ray Bradbury, was on the show, and he referred to all of us as the “impossible people.”

Quotable quote:

“Science … is not so much concerned with truth as it is with consensus. What counts as “truth” is what scientists can agree to count as truth at any particular moment in time … [Scientists] are not really receptive or not really open-minded to any sorts of criticisms or any sorts of claims that actually are attacking some of the established parts of the research (traditional) paradigm—in this case neo-Darwinism—so it is very difficult for people who are pushing claims that contradict the paradigm to get a hearing. They’ll find it difficult to [get] research grants; they’ll find it hard to get their research published; they’ll, in fact, find it very hard.”

– Professor Evelleen Richards (science historian, University of NSW, Australia), “Lateline,” Australian Broadcasting Corporation, October 9, 1998.

According to Bradbury, the earth came from the sun and then cooled over billions of years. Then rain watered the earth and life started! He admitted he didn’t know how this happened and said it was still a mystery—but—he said that life started all the same!

It all seemed impossible to him, and that’s why he referred to us as the “impossible people.”

Well, he’s right! It is impossible for man to be here based on evolution by chance processes! But he’s totally wrong when he says that the start of life is a mystery. It’s only a mystery to him because he completely rejects God as the author of all creation.

We’re not the “impossible people”! As Scripture states, “For with God nothing is impossible.” Sadly, many don’t want to accept the God of creation, because this means they must kneel in submission to the One who owns us!
