In a prior blog I discussed the dependence of atheistic cosmology on explosions. Secular scientists believe all matter exploded out of nothing due to a quantum fluctuation. They also believe all life exploded into being in a short period for no reason a few hundred million years ago. They adopt these beliefs, not based on SCIENTIFIC evidence, but because they have no other explanation!
We discussed the absurdity of quantum fluctuation creating everything in another blog. Today lets discuss the absurdity of believing in evolution, and at the same time believing all life appeared suddenly on the earth.
For over a century, those who preferred evolution as an explanation for everything taught, and apparently believed, that evolution was a gradual process, requiring hundreds of millions of years to make small changes that progressively increased the complexity of life. But in fact, the evidence from the geological strata show it pretty much appeared all at once during or just before the Cambrian period. This should have discouraged the proponents of evolution. But since the belief in evolution is primarily a philosophical, rather than a scientific tenet, it did not.
Relatively little is known about the Precambrian Era despite it making up roughly seven-eighths of the Earth’s history. (1) (Wikipedia) Yet in this period, all life on earth supposedly originated, developed, and thrived. Life not only created itself during this period, according to evolutionary theory it advanced rapidly into millions of species in a very short period. (1) This is the antithesis of how evolution was described for over a century, and is in itself, proof of the complete failure of evolutionary theory. In fact, in order to support the latest evolutionary timeline, during the “Cambrian explosion” there would have been the appearance of an entirely new species of life approximately every 50 years!
But there is more. The Precambrian and Cambrian Era are distributed around the world in what is called the “Burgess-type” shale. In all the ares of the world where such “Burgess-type” shale has been found, all the organisms appear the same. No variance, no progression. All are the same. All over the world. No support for evolution here.
In addition, secular scientists recognize, “The way in which the Burgess Shale animals were buried, by a mudslide or a sediment-laden current that acted as a sandstorm, suggests they lived on the surface of the seafloor.” (2) (Wikipedia) This (mudslide or sediment laden current) sounds much more like a single great flood than evidence of evolution. And the fact that other living creatures are above this layer could suggest they were carried in by a sediment laden current afterwards, and buried in successive layers above the sea floor creatures.
The history of geology and evolution do not support the gradual development of life on earth. Not even using Uniformitarian assumptions. The Theory of Evolution is a scientifically unpalatable philosophical assumption in light of many new findings in geology, molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics over the past 70 years.
Job 12:7-10 ESV “But ask the beasts, and they will teach you;
the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you;
or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you;
and the fish of the sea will declare to you.
Who among all these does not know
that the hand of the Lord has done this?
In his hand is the life of every living thing
and the breath of all mankind.
