Pain and the Adam Bomb

Abstract

Pain is an inescapable part of life. The Creationism paradigm, must include an understanding of the "Adam Bomb" of pain. Pain perception is a created sensory attribute. The nervous system evinces supernatural design with a complex structure and function. An irreducible, complex relationship exists between the nervous system and the other tissues and organs in the body. The sensory pathways of pain, with all the attributes of the nervous system, are unique. God endowed humans with pain perception so they might enjoy life in a universe with electrical, magnetic, heat and gravitational energies. Even though the natural forces in the universe are gradually decaying, God-created controls can offset the chaos caused by pain. Humanity causes much of its own pain and sorrow by its foolish ideas, selfishness, greed, and lack of self-control.

The Bible contains many words for pain. The Hebrew word, atsab, found in the first chapters of Genesis, depicts grief and sorrow. The Book of Genesis relates many human-to-human and God-to-human relationships. Bible study reveals that the original "Adam Bomb" was an awareness of mankind's conflict with God, inspired by selfish motives and severing the relationship between humans and God. All humans create "Adam Bombs" by their failure to understand their human nature and their value to God, and their failure to seek a relationship with God.
