The big problem with the worldview of most people today is that they mistakenly perceive technological advances as "progress."
Let me tell you the difference between real progress and the upgrades of society today.
Upgrades are merely us gaining more knowledge of how the world works. As we gain understanding of the world we are able to create more things with its materials. But this does not mean the world is making more materials! The world itself is not "evolving" we are merely discovering the laws by which it has operated since the beginning of creation. There is much diversity available to us in the creation, but we are not seeing the creation "improve itself." This is scientifically impossible.
Two laws prohibit this possibility.
1) Matter can neither be created nor destroyed. (Law of the Conservation of Mass
To say it in the simplest terms on the first law... man does not create, he rearranges. And on the second law... man does not get stronger, he eats up energy from something else.
The only real progress you can make in life is with God. He is the unending source of matter and energy, not the universe. Secular scientists and Hollywood are not going to create a "better" world for us by their clever formulas and imagery. Obviously God wants us to make this world the best we can and use its resources efficiently!! But it is not our ultimate hope. Our ultimate hope is in a new world that Jesus is creating. Now that one is ALWAYS progressing!!!!
