Q: Is an Ivy League school really spending millions of dollars to prove there’s no God?

A: These days it seems as though everyone is jumping into the creation/evolution debate. Not wanting to be left out, Harvard announced a new multimillion dollar research project, the “Origins of Life in the Universe Initiative.” They’re setting aside $1 million a year to try to prove what they already believe.

Listen to what a Harvard professor of chemistry and chemical biology told the New York Times about the origin of life: “My expectation is that we will be able to reduce this to a very simple series of logical events that could have taken place with no divine intervention.”

For all the PhDs that Harvard may hand out—and for all the good science they may do—none of it is important when it comes to eternity. If they’re producing atheists, then what’s the point in the long run?

As Matthew 16 tells us, “What profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?”
