Chapter 4 of Evolution, the Big Bang, and Other Fables, by A N Mack MD
Evolution will someday be shown to be the greatest hoax in the history of science. It may be, as the title of Jonathan Sarfati’s book suggests, “The Greatest Hoax on Earth?” Sarfati writes, describing one of evolution’s most vocal advocates Richard Dawkins, “Dawkins is much like his hero, Charles Darwin, who embellishes scientific observations with curious speculation to fit his own atheistic worldview.“(1)
Many atheists will admit there have been numerous “hoaxes” such as Piltdown man, Nebraska man, Java man, Orce man, or Boule’s Neanderthal man. Archeoraptor and Haeckel’s embryos were also proven fraudulent. Some evolutionary proponents will admit individual instances of a person here or there who “faked” a specimen. A few might even acknowledge the clearly “embellished” and fanciful horse series, (which has been put forward for generations as “proof” of evolution, but is actually three different species of horses).
These are just a few examples, but this is bigger than a few dozen examples can explain. It is a systematic, guided, planned, and intentional misleading of our youth. It is what some call textbook fraud. Evolutionists tolerate knowingly fraudulent pro-evolution evidence in school textbooks. New textbooks purchased by schools are filled with inaccurate information to promote evolution. School teachers and professors (at least the more educated among them) know the material is fraudulent, but they continue to teach it. Materials persist in High School and University Textbooks that were exposed as fraud over 90 years ago! Everyone ignores this, because this fraudulent data is the best evidence for evolution that they have!
Evolution itself, the very idea, the inane proposition itself will someday be shown to be the greatest (and perhaps most destructive) hoax ever perpetrated on mankind.
How could such a thing have happened? Well, it is amazing just how far astray you can go with the blind leading the blind. Jesus told his followers, “Stay away from those Pharisees! They are like blind people leading other blind people, and all of them will fall into a ditch.” Psalm 14:1 also tells us “The fool has said in his heart there is no God.” Unfortunately, for over a hundred years, our society has been led by fools, blinded by their pride and arrogance. Atheistic scientists are, by scriptural definition, fools. Why? Because they don’t believe in God. They have moved to the forefront of social consciousness, becoming so influential on our campuses that we have entire generations of youth believing that the universe created itself out of nothing and that life arose from a mud puddle to its current array of magnificent complexity.
Scientism is in many ways much like progressivism, or “modern architecture”. If you ask a social progressive about his or her political beliefs, you will likely find a mix of social, religious, and philosophical constructs that are largely a rehash of prior failed systems around the world. However, because the individual has not seen these in her own lifetime, they believe they are “progressive”, and they are therefore superior to the status quo. Many of today’s political progressives in America, for instance, promote socialism, or communism, or other impractical, idealistic, failed forms of government. These forms of government are in reality, far more repressive and regressive than progressive.
Similarly, when I look at examples of “modern architecture” from the 1960s and 1970s, I find an avant-garde style that was considered hip, innovative and state of the art at the time. However, the bizarre roof angles, shiny metals, and glass walls have since been relegated to the trash heaps of architectural design, with a preference for more conventional architecture rapidly returning. “Modern” may sound good for a while, but in a few years it is passe. Just like “Progressivism”.
The same will, I believe, soon be said of the fad of Scientism. One too many “new discoveries” will come along and undermine the foundations of Cosmology, and even the gullible public will realize that Scientism has always been the most unscientific of disciplines.
In fact, it may well be the burgeoning group of Creation Scientists at organizations such as the Institute for Creation Research and Answers in Genesis who eventually undermine and factually disprove much of the currently accepted Old Earth cosmology. The Lord has chosen, in His divine and eternal wisdom, to allow secular scientists to dominate the progress of cosmology for some time now, and to define the current concepts of the origin of the Earth and the universe. But in the near future, given access to the same technology, many scientists and researchers who are Christian are finding more and more convincing evidence that the Earth and the Universe were created by the Word of God, just like the Bible says.
Or as Nasr has written, “Today, all kinds of philosophical conclusions are made concerning physical or astronomical theories and discoveries, often with total neglect for the limitations and assumptions originally made by the scientists. With Kant, physics became the source of philosophy and there developed a physicism very much similar to the earlier mathematicism of Descartes. With a real philosophy of nature there would be an independent matrix within which the implications of different sciences could be tested and tried and their meaning made known without the aberrations which so often accompany philosophical interpretations of scientific theories today.”(2)
Romans chapter one vs 18-23 (NIV) in context shows parallels to today:
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
It is critical, for the sake of our youth, that a generation of scientists, teachers, pastors, and parents educate themselves on the fallacies of evolution and the Big bang.
