[Apologetics] > Can't you find Patterns in Anything?

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools ...

Romans 1:22-23

One of the most common, foolish, and superficial objections raised by those who would divert attention from even discussing the structure of God's Word is the absurd assertion that "you can find patterns in anything, therefore the Bible Wheel is meaningless." Such critics have likened the Bible Wheel to a "face in cloud," an "inkblot," and the famous image of the Virgin Mary in a cheese sandwich This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window. This canard is almost certain to appear in any discussion of the Bible Wheel on an internet forum.

The delightful irony here is that skeptics pride themselves on their intelligence and rationality which they use as their fundamental excuse to reject the Gospel. But then they cast it away as a filthy rag when confronted with hard evidence of design in God's Word or His Creation. Pattern recognition is one of the fundamental elements of intelligence tests! By denying the obvious, they fulfill Scripture and prove themselves to be fools. Here is how intelligencetest.com This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new windowexplains the relation of pattern recognition to general intelligence:

Out of all mental abilities this type of intelligence is said to have the highest correlation with the general intelligence factor, g. This is primarily because pattern recognition is the ability to see order in a chaotic environment; the primary condition for life. Patterns can be found in ideas, words, symbols and images and pattern recognition is unlearned and untrainable. Pattern recognition is a key determinant of your potential in logical, verbal, numerical and spatial abilities. It is essential for reasoning because your capacity to think logically is based on your perception of the logic around you.

Here is a typical pattern recognition test question from the article cited above:

Which of the patterns completes the series?

Pattern Recognition

The correct answer is B. To see this, simply note the movement of the blocks. The two at the center on the left-to-right diagonal (\) are are stationary, whereas the one that begins in the upper right corner moves down the right-to-left diagonal (/) and the one that begins in the lower left corner moves vertically. Now consider the "intelligence" implied by the question posed by irrational opponents of the Bible Wheel:

Which of these patterns is different than the others?
Face in a Cloud Ink Blot Mary in a Cheese Sandwhich The Bible Wheel
Face in a Cloud An Inkblot Mary in a
Cheese Sandwich
The Bible Wheel

The irrational opponent to the Bible Wheel would assert "None of the above!" Obviously, no further comment on this absurd canard is required, nor deserved. It is pure foolishness, though it does have the amusing consequence of revealing how skeptics are willing to cast away their own intelligence in their efforts to oppose God and His Word.
