One day a group of scientists got together and
decided that man had come a long way and no longer
needed God. So they picked one scientist to go and
tell Him that they were done with Him.
The scientist walked up to God and said,
“God we’ve decided that we no longer need you.
We’re to the point that we can clone
people and do miraculous things,
so why don’t you just go and get lost.”
God listened very patiently and kindly to the man.
After the scientist was done talking, God said,
“Very Well, how about this?
Lets say we have a man making contest.”
To which the scientist replied, “Okay, great!”
But God added, “Now we’re going to do this just
like I did back in the old days with Adam.”
The scientist said, “Sure, no problem.”
And bent down and grabbed himself
a handful of dirt. God looked at him and said,
“No, no, no. You get your own dirt!”

Let me grant, in the first place, that the believer cannot cite a deeper ground for revelation than its divine authority, which he or she recognizes by faith. But this is not to say that believers have nothing to say to the opponents of that revelation. True: they have no airtight proofs; they cannot move the opponent toward faith; but they have at least as much to say in defending as the opponent has in attacking scriptural authority. Unbelief, too, is rooted, not in proofs and arguments, but in the heart. In this respect believers and unbelievers are in exactly the same position. Their convictions are integrally bound up with their whole personality and are only a posteriori supported by proofs and arguments. And now, when the two parties oppose each other with these a posteriori proofs and arguments, the position of believers is not less favorable than that of unbelievers. God is sufficiently knowable to those who seek him and also sufficiently hidden to those who run away from him. “There is enough light for those who only desire to see and enough darkness for those of a contrary disposition. There is enough clarity to illumine the elect and enough darkness to humble them. There is enough darkness to render the reprobate sightless and enough clarity to condemn them and to render them inexcusable.” The state of religion, theism, revelation, and Scripture is not as hopeless as science has for years wanted us to believe. – Herman Bavinck
