The goddess of Chance

Please read this representative type of comment (of many) regarding the Harold Camping story:
Commenter 1:
People need to have the COURAGE to become agnostic.

There is NOTHING wrong with saying 'I don't know'.

There is plenty wrong with saying 'I DO know'.

Commenter 2:
Agreed.  Doubt, in my estimation is one of the most powerful forces in the universe.

This might surprise you, but this “kind” of thinking is purely the product of how reasoning is being taught (corrupted) in our Universities and public school systems – i.e. Evolution. 

Think about it, Commenter 1 praises, perhaps even celebrates, the unknown.  However, he abhors absolute certainty (The Truth).  The one thing he is certain about is that it is WRONG to say “I do know”.    Anyone but me see the utter contradiction here?  It’s kind of like saying “I don’t know anything for sure, but I do know one thing for sure, what you are saying is wrong”.       
  
What does this have to do with evolution?  Look at Commenter 2’s statement.  “Doubt” is now a force.  In order for evolution to be viable, guess what must also be a force?  Chance!  That’s right; “chance” must be a force in order for evolution to make any sense.   When a so called scientist attributes “power” to chance, they have not only abandoned reason; they have left the science building.  Neither Commenter 1 nor 2 are remotely aware of the absurdity of their own comments.   They obliterate reason and meaning from everything.  

This irrational “religion” isn’t really new, however.  Back in the day, there was this goddess in the Greek pantheon called “fortune”.  Like fortune, “chance” is the new goddess of evolution.  Goddess Chance has become a force, a force so great and mighty that she can out of nothing make everything.   

The Truth:
This is an age old religion of fools (Psalm 14:1) – The fool says in his heart, “There is no God”.  

Romans 1:20 – For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made.  So they are without excuse.
