Excerpt from The True Nature Of Human Nature

As a final nail in the coffin of the creation account, let us examine a definitive hole in the creation mythos on day five.  On this day, birds are created, alongside the animals in the seas.  On day six, land animals are created.  However, again in using the fossil record, we find a glaring hole in this account.  Birds are direct descendants of dinosaurs.  Fossil evidence establishes that dinosaurs and birds had congruent features such as hollow, pneumatized bones, were nest-builders and had similar digestive behaviors.   Archaeopteryx is a classic example of a fossil that fills a missing link gap.  

This brings us to our inevitable dilemma.  Land animals are clearly created on the sixth day, after birds!  This runs in direct opposition to what Paleontology has shown us!  We can even ignore the overwhelming evidence for evolution because the bible does not subscribe to this fact.  Let us examine the fossil record.  Fossils in lower layers died longer ago than specimens found in higher layers.  It can be viewed as the earth tree rings.  When do you ever find a bird fossil at a portion of the earth’s strata lower than the first land animals?  Never!  It never happens!  Therefore, you can exclude all of the overwhelming evidence that science has culled together, such as similar bodily characteristics, habits, conclusive DNA evidence (it is scientifically proven that a T-Rex and bird are a closer match DNA-wise than an alligator, a reptile) and the fact that feathers developed in the fossil record with dinosaurs and no other such animal.  The layers of the stratum show that the land animals came first and that birds came after.  There is no way to provide confluence to the text.  It is irreconcilable.

Nearly two people die each second, according to http://www.ecology.com/birth-death-rates/.  Take a minute to contemplate that fact.  Let that idea marinate in your minds.  By the time you finish reading this sentence, approximately 16 people would have died either because of murder, suicide, an accident, disease, natural causes, or other reasons.  If this is too surreal to comprehend, please go to http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/ and watch the “Deaths Today” ticker.  It is quite sobering to see the number of deaths that occur every second.  After viewing the ticker for some time, contemplate on why this is happening, if you subscribe to the biblical creation account.  This constant torrent of death is occurring simply because a couple of people disobeyed God and ate from the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.  According to the Bible, the simple disobedience by earths primary couple is responsible for the approximately 100 billion who have died since the beginning of time.  Is this a justifiable punishment for people who are not responsible for the first couple’s non-compliance?  Is it moral to in essence kill billions because of our primal progenitors’ godly insubordination?  Is it not more moral and understanding to think that these deaths happen because this is what occurs in evolution?  Please comment below!

I almost let my son die.  If not for my loving wife, I may have let my son die.  This is what the “harmless” door knocking Jehovah’s Witnesses can do and truly expect from you.  They demand blood. 

Excerpt from the book The True Nature Of Human Nature

Preston was going to be born with a rare heart condition known as “Transposition of the Great Arteries,” also known as TGA.  Without going into the details, the layman explanation of the condition is that the heart was fine, but the arteries, the plumbing of the heart, was inversely installed.  The oxygenated blood that was meant for the body was re-pumped back to the lungs, and the deoxygenated blood destined to be replenished with oxygen in the lungs was redistributed into the body again.  In essence, he was going to choke to death almost as soon as he left the safety of the womb.  He would die in minutes, hours or days.  If there were sufficient mixing in the heart (something that occurs in almost all newborns), he would live a month or two tops.  The diagnosis of TGA was a death sentence.  A baby born with TGA, if no remedial is done, will die.  It is certain death.

Herein lies the issue.  The Jehovah’s Witness organization does not allow the use of blood transfusions.  They use the bible as evidence that God would not allow such a thing.  If a Witness were to proceed with a transfusion, they would be disfellowshipped, the most severe form of excommunication that exists.

Here is the defining moment for me personally.  My wife followed her own path to emancipation, and I am happy to say we all met at the same destination of peace.  We found the best doctor in the world to do the procedure, Dr. Jan Quaegebeur and the procedure in his hands had a 99% success rate.  We discussed with the other doctors that we needed this to be a bloodless surgery, and they agreed to do their best.  They gave our son blood expanders and would recycle his blood as required. 

However, the day of the surgery came and Dr. Q, as he is called at the hospital came up to us and said that he would do the best to avoid a blood transfusion but that he could not guarantee a bloodless surgery.  There is a certain amount of blood required in the blood pump before it can operate and being that Preston was two weeks old, he did not have a lot of blood available.  I kept saying out loud “this is supposed to be a bloodless surgery!” but my loving wife intervened and said, “Please do whatever it takes to save our son” and she signed the requisite waivers.  I felt relieved that my wife made the tough decision but also ashamed.  Did this false religion mean more to me than my son?  See chapter 4 for a more in-depth view of this situation under the discussion of “Social Compliance.”  I feel that in the end, I would have caved in and accepted the procedure with blood, but I will never truly know.  I only know that I have Dr. Q and my loving, intelligent wife to thank for in saving the life of my son.  A blood transfusion was, in fact, necessary or the chance for death was certain.  I never wanted to broach the subject again, but my wife did and one day said “Are you ok with my decision for a blood transfusion?  I pick the life of my son over God”.  I agreed with her decision, with the weight of my shame in full view of my facial features.  I thanked her for doing what I was not ready to do, save our son.
