I am not surprised! He is a little flaky as a Christian:
Mr Langan is a fellow of the International Society for Complexity, Information, and Design (ISCID), a professional society which promotes intelligent design and as such, he enjoys a belief in God along with almost 7%
of American intellectuals.
However, even at his high level, he misuses these skills and is, in fact, a poor Christian. On his website, he blatantly states:
"since Biblical accounts of the genesis of our world and species are true but metaphorical,"
which is a lie, as the Whole Bible is true - why would God tell stories when He expects the Truth and is Truth? Why on earth (or in heaven) would God create a man and then not create him with intelligence to understand that truth that is KJV1611? Answer that!
Mr Langan also has a tendency to wander of into theories of his own making (somewhat like a false prophet) that certainly do not coincide with the Bible:
They [human minds] are not as powerful as God's Mind, for they are only parts thereof; yet, they are directly connected to the greatest source of knowledge and power that exists. This connection of our minds to the Mind of God, which is like the connection of parts to a whole, is what we sometimes call the soul or spirit, and it is the most crucial and essential part of being human
Now, where in the Bible does God use them $20 words? Well, I'll tell you, "He doesn't"!
And why not? Well because God said, Ge:1:26a: And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:"
God did not mention brains, in fact the word brain does not occur in the Bible. The Bible is completely brain-less!
However, I hear you object, "What about Ge:3:22: And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil:
and Ge:3:5: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
So here we see that the human brain is equal to that of a god.
This massive IQ does not guarantee Salvation - It is likely that, in some delinquent minds, it leads to over-thinking. This is quite possibly what has happened to Mr Langan, as his faith has wandered and often, to me, it sounds like his imagination is making things up!
