Science Can't Deny It - There's a God-shaped Void in All Men

C.S. Lewis, Blaise Pascal, Metaphysical longings in man

"Cognitive scientists are becoming increasingly aware that a metaphysical(1) outlook may be so deeply ingrained in human thought processes that it cannot be expunged."
~ quote from a secular website(2)

I'm amused when unbelievers confirm Biblical truth. Even though they interpret facts through their evolutionary lens, they admit that most men sense there's something beyond themselves.

C.S. Lewis wrote about our "metaphysical longing" too: "If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world."

No matter how hard men try to deny it, down deep they agree with Lewis. 

Blaise Pascal said it this way: "Within each human being there is a God-shaped void.”

As Christians, we know man is created for fellowship with God but separated by sin. The longing in our souls is not a product of evolution, but a confirmation that we need and want God.

Science can create convoluted explanations for it, but they can't deny it.
(1) reality beyond what is perceptible to the senses; supernatural
(2) Science 2.0

  1. Amen! I always figure if scientists are searching, they will find! That is a biblical principle, right?!
