In Bill Maher’s movie, Religulous, he baits a U.S. senator for believing in “a talking snake in the garden.” But “why should it be thought a thing incredible” for atheists to believe in a snake with the ability to talk? Don’t they believe that a whole species of “animals” arose after millions of years of non-talking life forms and that they somehow developed, by a series of happy accidents, the ability to use articulate speech? Steven Pinker, director of MIT’s Center of Cognitive Neuroscience, stated in The Language Instinct: “As you are reading these words, you are taking part in one of the wonders of the natural world. For you and I belong to a species with a remarkable ability: we can shape events in each other’s brains with remarkable precision…That ability is language…The ability comes so naturally that we are apt to forget what a miracle it is.” Christian, use that miraculous (the evolutionist’s word) ability to sow the seed of God’s Word in others’ minds for the Spirit’s germination.
