ICR: Food Is Proof of Creationism

Yes, dear reader, the evidence just keeps piling up; but the Darwinists still cling to their theory of evolution. Today we have more proof from the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) — the fountainhead of young-earth creationist wisdom. Their creation scientists have been hard at work and they’ve just posted Our Daily Bread: How Food Proves God’s Providence. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:

Sometimes the proof that God is our Creator comes in the form of a potato, or lingonberries, or cheese, or eggs, or a codfish. Each type of food is a witness to God’s providential care. The meals consumed over a human lifetime offer a huge quantity of proof, from a huge pantry of witnesses!

Lingonberries? Oh well, it is indeed a huge quantity of proof! Let’s read on:

Food provides strong evidence of God’s wisdom and power as our Creator, as well as His goodness in providing for fallen mankind’s physical needs. In fact, the Bible teaches that the providentially programmed production of all food, anywhere and everywhere on earth, is itself a continuing proof that God is a caring Creator.

It’s so obvious — only a fool would deny it! We continue:

Since the Flood, God’s historic providence in providing a dependable cycle of annual seasons has been routine. … If the “reawakening” of plant life during spring were to occur only once in a human’s lifetime, the wonder of it all would (and should) be recognized as an immense miracle, so majestic and clever that billions of words could not do justice to describe it.

Now we know how pathetic Darwin’s theory is in comparison. Here’s more:

Likewise, God’s provision of an amazing diversity of foods — around the world, in every age, in every culture, to every people group — is proof positive that God is Creator. Food is absolutely necessary to prolong our physical life.

Yes, it’s proof positive — especially the banana! See: Ray Comfort’s famous “Banana video”. Moving along:

God has also acted in human history, in the lives of human beings, in ways that so tellingly reveal His intervention that to fail to recognize God’s providential involvement is morally and intellectually inexcusable. No random “chance” could provide a satisfactory explanation for the results of God’s providential care, and the proof is everywhere for those with eyes to see, even in every bite we eat.

Verily, failure to recognize it is inexcusable! What would we do without the creation scientists at ICR?

  1. Maybe someone should point out to them that almost every type of food we grow has been the direct result of artificial selection.

  2. But Reinard, that’s intelligent design, truly.

    You know that banana rhymes with manna? Coincidence? I think not.

  3. Thank God for Burger King!!

  4. Is the ICR simply trying to defend Bill O’Reilly? I note a marked similarity between O’Reilly’s “The sun comes up. The sun goes down. The tides comes in. The tide goes out.” and the ICR’s statement,

    Since the Flood, God’s historic providence in providing a dependable cycle of annual seasons has been routine.

    Figure since O’Reilly has been a staunch defender of creationism, they’d do well to keep them in his good graces.

  5. That explains why most of the Earth is covered in cellulose, made up of TWO sugars, which we can’t digest.

    Damn those termites with their spirochetes! If I had spirochetes I wouldn’t need a lawn service. Maybe ICR can get Jesus to mow my lawn.

  6. I think the ICR is becoming a bit desperate. Even their theology is strange here – after all, didn’t death enter the world because Adam and Eve ate food god had placed in the center of their garden?

    Even today, we are struggling with an epidemic of obesity in the US, bringing early death to its victims, while people in the third world are starving. That is a sign of god’s love? The article makes no sense.

    Worst of all, they make no mention of beer. They could have improved their argument greatly.

    Their fans don’t care. Besides, if it were up to Darwin, we’d have evolved in a barren wasteland.

  8. All those poisons in Nature must be proof of something, too, what?

  9. “Since the Flood, God’s historic providence in providing a dependable cycle of annual seasons has been routine.”

    really? So climate records showing times of drought and famine….that would be god having a day off would it?

    “Food provides strong evidence of God’s wisdom and power as our Creator, as well as His goodness in providing for fallen mankind’s physical needs.”

    Apart from occasionally when he doesnt and hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women and kids starve to death and die slow, horrible deaths. Im guessing that would be his brother, the God who is a psychopathic sadistic tosser? And if he loves the faithfull so much, why is it the famines now hit countries in Africa and historically Ireland (The Potato Famine) which are where his fans live, rather than countries like Denmark and Sweden where he is as popular as a turd floating in a swimming pool? Hmmmmm…..

    Seems to me to be another breakout of Prosperity Gospel mentality here.

    God loves America, so we are all fat assed lardballs.

    God hates the unbelievers, so he starves them to death.

    …or maybe he doesnt exist at all?

  10. Hahahaha! Thanks for the LOL Sandman!

    😀

  11. I was going to comment something about what zebras think about the Caring Creator designing them so that they would be food for lions.

    But I realized that zebras wouldn’t be able to speak or type, so I decided to ask what humans think about humans being part of a design which provides a way of making a living for malaria parasites.

  12. we are all fat assed lardballs.

    I’m not a fat assed lardball. I’m just pleasingly plump.

  13. Creationists are reaching brand new levels of pathetic.

    I thought it was one of their better efforts. After all, food really does exist.

  15. How about a diet of creationist liver with fava beans and a nice chianti?

  16. Are we really 50% plant?… Where do Plant seeds come from? Is it ethical to eat plants?
