The same kind of reasoning occurs in the ministry of B. D. Hales.
BDH Vol. 104 page 123 (Sydney, 31 October 2010)If there was another planet where life was, do you think God wouldn’t have told us about it? It's impossible. And do you think the Lord wouldn’t have gone there? And He hasn’t. Because there isn’t.
Neither did the Bible tell us there was life on other continents, such as America, Antarctica or Australia, or that the Lord went there. So to be consistent we should not believe in kangaroos, red Indians, Eskimos, penguins, or about hundreds of billions of galaxies and billions of billions of planets, because the Bible didn’t tell us about these either.
“It’s impossible,” says Mr Bruce. I suppose you could use the same kind of reasoning to rule out almost anything you didn’t want people to believe in. The Bible didn’t tell us about climate change, evolution, genetic determinants of sexual orientation, the ice ages, ancient meteorites, continental drift or ancient species of hominids, so these must all be fairy stories too. With Brethren logic you can deduce anything you want people to believe and disprove anything you don’t want people to believe. It’s convenient, but deceptive.
