Unethicalists

Evolutionists and atheistic scientists have an ethics problems.

First, and simplest, it has been pointed out many times by many authors that if we humans are indeed the product of molecules to man evolution, then there is no substantive or foundational reason that we should be ethical.  If we are merely the product of a billion generations of survival of the fittest, then our only ethical and moral imperative is to survive at all costs.  We may steal, rape, kill, abuse, and destroy, as long as it makes ourselves or our offspring more likely to survive.  That is the real true state of ethics for evolutionists.

Second, if atheists are correct and we are all here as the result of some cosmic accident, then there is no moral authority to our choices and decisions.  One moral choice is just as good as another.  Each person can argue for their own moral choices in the public square, but in reality, not one can claim to be “truth” and not one can be claimed to be false. If there is no first cause (God) for all things, or if the first cause of all things is an accident, a fluke, a meaningless big bang, then all subsequent choices are equally meaningless as well.

However (and even more importantly) I believe that atheists also have a very real and present ethical problem with today’s cosmology, because they have become such proponents for their latest viewpoints that they tell our youth that they “know” the universe is 14 billion years old.  They say they “know” evolution is true. The National Academy of Sciences states evolution is a fact. (1) Stephen Gould and others insist it is an established incontrovertible fact. (2)  Many modern Zoologists will tell anyone willing to listen that evolution is a firmly established fact.

Yet tens of thousands of scientists and educated persons see things differently.  The fossils that some use to “prove” evolution are just as easily used to prove creation.  The geological strata that some scientist say are “proof” of evolution, are seen by some other scientists as being far better evidence for a cataclysmic flood as described in Genesis.  So when you hear an atheist or evolutionist professing loudly and dramatically that we “know” the earth is 4.5 billion years old and “evolution is a proven fact”, it begins to appear that they are more interested in propaganda than in science.  They prefer talking points to honesty.

In fact, if we are open and honest, the unbiased discussion of scientific exploration of the universe that began under notable Christians such as Galileo, Newton, and Keppler, has been hijacked and side-tracked by modern atheists.  The six principles of scientific study have been violated on numerous fronts by atheists who place their distaste God above their scientific integrity. Why, because they have stated a priori, that they disavow any possibility of a Creator.  But what about their version of “creation”?

Lets examine the Big Bang in light of the Six Principles of Scientific Thinking.

  1. Have important alternatives for the finding been excluded?  No one has, (or at least in this life) is ever capable of excluding the possibility that God Created the universe.
  2. Can we be sure that A causes B?  No honest scientist is SURE that the big bang occurred, or when or how or why it might have occurred.  In their own writings we can find much evidence to support this. So we cannot  be sure that the Big Bang caused the formation of the universe.
  3. Falsifiability.  Can the theory be disproved?  Since the Theory of the big bang is purely hypothetical, and was not seen, and cannot be proven or measured, it is also true that it cannot be disproved.
  4. Can the principle be replicated in other studies.  Of course not.  No one can replicate the Big Bang.  If it occurred (and I will later illustrate why this was impossible) it occurred once only.  Never again to be “recreated” by humankind.
  5. Is the evidence as strong as the claim?  The Big Bang Proponents claim that nothing existed (not even the concept of existence, or time or matter) and then there was some sort of a quantum fluctuation in the nothing, and “bang” everything appeared.  Nonsense. Nothing plus nothing or multiplied by nothing equals nothing.
  6.  Occams razor. Does a simpler explanation fit the data just as well.  Yes.  God created the heavens and the earth.  Simple.

So on all six principles of scientific study, it can be argued that the Big Bang fails!  It turns out you have to accept either viewpoint on FAITH.  And at least to my relatively unbiased interpretation of the facts, it takes a lot more FAITH to believe the atheist story, than the Bible story.  And yet the atheists persist in their propaganda campaign to brainwash an entire generation of youth.

 

Hebrews 11:6  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Differing with Dawkins

For most of my adult life, I have avoided the writings of Richard Dawkins.  Starting in college and subsequently, in grad school, I was exposed to his atheist views, and as a Christian, I was repulsed by them.  It is necessary, however, for the sake of the many souls suffering under his sphere of influence, to puncture the grandiose bubble of his atheist delusions and reply scientifically to his pseudo-science.  The scientific language barrier that exists for many in society can be a source of intimidation.  It may in some cases cause those who are not trained in the scientific method to retreat and concede ground needlessly to those in positions of “scientific authority”.  A man who is a skilled and gifted plumber, artist, or administrator might drift into a fog of oblivion when the doctor comes in and rattles off a string of medical, surgical, or pharmacological terms.  In the same way many people “give up” and assume that a scientist who can insert terms into a long and technical equation must “Know what he is talking about.” I believe such is the case with the writings of Richard Dawkins and some other prominent atheists.

For now, I will address some of his more popular philosophical statements.  Of course, I will agree with Dawkins on some topics and vehemently disagree on other.  For example, Dawkins wrote:

#1 “Let us try to teach generosity and altruism because we are born selfish.” Who could disagree with this? Psalm 51:5 agrees, saying “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me.” I would also heartily agree with his statement. I wonder how he could stomach being in total agreement with the Bible.

#2 “Natural selection is anything but random“.  You see, he is again himself agreeing with the Bible, and creationists.  It is true that natural selection is not random.  It only occurs within a species already created by God and it never occurs as a result of some accidental or random point mutation in a strand of DNA. Furthermore, his statement requires the presence of a higher power, or directive force.  If it is not random it is directed.  He can call it anything he wants. I call it God.

In another quote, intended as a slam dunk insult against Christians, Dawkins approaches the truth when he states:

#3 “Nothing is wrong with peace and love. It is all the more regrettable that so many of Christ’s followers seem to disagree.” Of course this is true.  See as proof quote #1. Everyone, Christians included, is born into sin.  Everyone has a fallen sin nature.  Of course I would add that as our society has gotten more secular over the last few decades, we have certainly NOT gotten more peaceful and loving.  And I would also note that our prisons are not populated primarily with those who attended church regularly and professed their love of Christ. But of course there are indeed evil persons in our churches as well.  2 Corinthians 11:13-15 reads, “For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.”

And who could disagree with this:

#4 “Biology is the study of complicated things that have the appearance of having been designed with a purpose.”  True. They certainly do appear that way. Because they were designed with a purpose! Psalm 19 :1 says the same thing.  “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”  Job Chapter 12 adds “7 But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; 8 or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? 10 In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.”

But in his desire to worship his own intellect instead of his Creator, Richard Dawkins also wrote:

#5 “My eyes are constantly wide open to the extraordinary fact of existence. Not just human existence, but the existence of life and how this breathtakingly powerful process, which is natural selection, has managed to take the very simple facts of physics and chemistry and build them up to redwood trees and humans.” Extraordinary indeed.  Only a fool could not see the Creator’s hand in all this. Psalm 14:1 “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.” and Proverbs 1:7 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

#6 “You can’t even begin to understand biology, you can’t understand life, unless you understand what it’s all there for, how it arose – and that means evolution.”  And upon what is this based?  The word of an avowed atheist who has never even considered seeing the magnificence of creation through the lens of scripture! A man who can explain neither the origin of life nor the complexities of biology except to say it must have been a gigantic, meaningless cosmic accident!

#7 “The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference.”  And how then does our great scientist explain Mozart’s Symphony #40 in G minor? How does he interpret the actions of Mother Theresa? Whence comes the universal appeal of the Mona Lisa, or van Gogh’s Starry night?  Why are we all dumbfounded and starstruck at a beautiful sunset? Or even more perplexing, why should we be almost universally repulsed by the murderous actions of a Hitler, Stalin or Pol Pot. Such actions should, after all, fit seamlessly into the evolutionary world of “blind, pitiless indifference”! They are actually at the apex of “survival of the fittest!”

#8 “A universe with a creator would be a totally different kind of universe, scientifically speaking, than one without.”  Now here is a glaring example of hubris if ever there was one.  A mere man, one who by his own testimony wasn’t very good in school, one who has never created anything but words on a page, pretends to know how one type of universe would differ from another.  A mortal with such limited comprehension that he cannot even explain the difference between time and eternity, or how a thing becomes alive, or what is the source of gravity, passes judgment on how an almighty God chose to order His creation!  Proverbs 26:12 “Do you see a person wise in their own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for them.”

 

Romans 1:20  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.

“Just the Facts Ma’am.”

For generations now a debate has raged between the so called “scientific community” and those who believe this universe, and we ourselves, are not an accident or cosmic mistake.  For all these years we have seen a creeping, insidious indoctrination of all areas of society.  It started with the “academics” and infiltrated the schools, and it was aimed especially at our children.  They are told that evolution is an established fact, solid science.  But nothing could be further from the truth.

In fact, most of the examples I was given as proof of evolution during my education in the 1960’s and 1970’s have been proven to be either mistaken, or outright fraudulent in the decades since.  Nebraska man, Piltdown man, Haeckel’s embryos, Java man, Lucy, and more recently Paderborn (Sande) man, and Archeoraptor to name a few.  Archeopteryx has been shown not to be an evolutionary intermediate, since it occurs in strata much later than modern fully formed birds appear (thus making it impossible that it was the missing link between dinosaurs and birds).  Nevertheless, the indoctrination continues.  Textbooks continue to be printed, approved, and distributed to our children, showing texts, tables, pictures, and diagrams that are known to be FALSE.  Why?  Because the alternative is admitting that evolution is NOT a fact, but rather a scientifically unsupportable theory.

Let me establish one thing first.  Some critics will infer that I (in fact anyone who believes in creation) is foolish, juvenile, unscientific, or a Bible-Thumper.  But this site is not about bragging or name calling,. It is about the scientific facts.  Neither is this site primarily a discussion of philosophy, or opinion, or even evangelism, although there will be instances of such. There are many other sites more qualified than this one for extensive conversations on the interpretation and meaning of scripture, or the social implications of Christianity vs atheism.  Each of these is certainly of great importance, but they are not our primary goal here.

This site is dedicated to the evaluation of the scientific underpinnings of evolution.  In light of that fact, and to that extent, all opinions pro, con, or otherwise, are welcome.  Please feel free to comment.

Antithetical

an·ti·thet·i·cal

ˌan(t)əˈTHedək(ə)l/
adjective
1. directly opposed or contrasted; mutually incompatible.
Some things can’t co-exist.  Like the immovable object and the unstoppable force.  Like the light in a totally dark room. Like belief in evolution and  accepting scientific reason.  The practical application of scientific principles is antithetical to a belief in evolution.
But you say, “I thought science had proved evolution.”
Let’s start with a little history. Prior to Einstein’s wonderful discoveries, most scientists believed in a created universe.  Einstein himself believed in a static, eternal universe.  Most scientists currently believe in a 14 billion year old universe. In fact the current crop of atheistic scientists will say science is incompatible with religion, and especially with the Bible.
Yet many of the most influential scientists of the past were Bible-believing Christians.  These included Isaac Newton (mathematician, astronomer and Theologian), Francis Bacon (father of the scientific method), Robert Boyle (founder of modern chemistry), John Dalton (atomic theory), Gregor Mendel (Father of modern Genetics), and of course Lord Kelvin (who laid the foundations of physics). Perhaps you, like many, believe that we know so much more now, that we cannot any longer believe in “fairy tales” like the Bible.  But what if it is the other way around?
Scientific beliefs, since they are always based on the latest newest technology, frequently change.  They vacillate.  They adapt and they adjust.  Old theories are tossed out like garbage, like dirty smelly old socks.  The new is always embraced and trumpeted to the public as though it were Eternal Truth. But therein lies the rub.  If we depend solely on the latest scientific finding for our definition of Truth, our foundation is pretty shaky.  If our understandings of the meaning of life, and the origins of the universe are based on science, then we should be absolutely certain that the scientific foundations of our beliefs are 100 percent firm.  There should be NO room for doubt.  Zero tolerance.
I can say with absolute certainty that the scientific foundations of modern science are not that firm. Scientists disagree on the age of the universe, the age of the earth, whether the earth is at the center of the universe, how big the universe is, and how the moon was formed.  Scientists also disagree vehemently on whether evolution can occur, how it could occur, and if there is any evidence it has occurred.
Still, in our schools and universities, with missionary zeal, our students are told there is no God.  They are told the Bible is a fairy tale.  They are told we are evolved from the apes.  The foundations and underpinnings of their Christian faith are systematically destroyed.  And they flounder and lose their way in heartbreaking numbers. Many look for answers in drugs or alcohol.  Others look for wealth or power or success. But one thing they are encouraged NEVER to do is look to God’s word, the Bible. This is ridiculed, and has supposedly been “proven” (by virtue of the latest fads in science) to be false.
And our youth, as well as our entire society, is paying the price for believing the musings and imaginations of men like Stephen Hawking and Richard Dawkins. Nevertheless, one thing is certain amidst all the uncertainty.  Evolution did not happen. It has been proven scientifically and statistically to be an impossibility.  And not a single atheist has any explanation for the origin of life, other than to say “There is no God so it must have just happened somehow.”  Not too scientific after all. For that matter, no scientist has ever offered any reasonable explanation for the origin of matter.  “There was a big bang. and it happened.” Not at all scientific.  In fact, when seen objectively, the Big Bang is patently ridiculous.
In a later post we will deal with the false, illogical and impossible “primordial soup” model, and with the scientific proving that the universe could not have originated in a “Big Bang” (If you believe that pseudo-scientific postulate, stay tuned).
For now, just consider this quote about mutations by Lee Spetner. “But all these mutations reduce the information in the gene by making a protein less specific. They add no information and they add no new molecular capability. Indeed, all mutations studied destroy information. None of them can serve as an example of a mutation that can lead to the large changes of macroevolution. … Whoever thinks macroevolution can be made by mutations that lose information is like the merchant who lost a little money on every sale but thought he could make it up on volume.”  (1)
John 16:13  But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
(1)Dr. Lee Spetner, a Jewish scientist and expert on mutations state in his book Not by Chance: Shattering the Modern Theory of Evolution, pp. 159–60:

Who are you going to trust?

When people say “Scientists believe… or Science teaches…” the statement that follows is likely to be erroneous, or at least a gross oversimplification.  All scientists cannot be lumped together any more than all preachers or teachers or truck drivers can be lumped together.  It is virtually impossible to get even the scientists within a specific branch of inquiry to agree on their research conclusions.  So it should come as no surprise that scientist in different branches of science may disagree as well.

So when an atheist says they “know” that evolution is a fact, or they “know” that the universe is 14 billion years old, that atheist is speaking for himself or herself.   When they say scientists agree that evolution occurred, they are at best uninformed, or at worst deliberately lying. There are hundreds of thousands of very intelligent, scientifically trained individuals who would disagree.

When we put our faith and trust in science, we should be aware of a few facts.  Science is quite good at telling us how high, or how far, or how big, or small or hot an object might be. Science can develop wonderful ways of evaluating this marvelous world, and seeing into the vast reaches of the universe.  But “Science” also brought us the Titanic, the Hindenburg, methamphetamine, LSD, and the Atomic bomb.

Some people say they “trust science” and so they believe in evolution and abortion and global warming.  Does that mean they also trust science and want to take meth while enjoying a ride on the Hindenburg? No, probably not. But each statement is equally illogical.  You see, science makes many claims.  Some are easily verifiable and others are not.  Take the science of pharmacology.  The belief in “better living through chemistry” has been both a blessing and a curse. Pharmacology has both saved millions of lives with medicines like insulin and antibiotics, and destroyed millions of lives with opiates, LSD, and addictive benzodiazepines.

So when it comes to the age of the universe or the origin of life, it is reasonable to question “scientists” who claim they have an intimate knowledge of such things.  Especially when they change their minds at least every 50 years when new findings require a whole new theory.  It is far more likely that they are spouting a popular opinion than offering a proven or time-tested Truth.  Behind closed doors, most scientists frankly admit they don’t really know much about the origin of the universe or how life originated.  “This matter is far from being settled by astrophysicists and cosmologists, so stay tuned. There could be radical new developments in the future.” (From the site Stringtheory.com.  Article entitled “How old is the universe”.

Consider that fact that scientists and astronomers (the same ones who say they know exactly how old the universe is) quite literally cannot find or measure 90% of the universe.  Yes, we can observe, see, or measure less than 10% of the mass of the universe.  The scientists have no idea what comprises the other 90%, but according to their calculations “it must be there”.  According to author Vera Rubin in Scientific American,  “As much as 90 percent of the matter in the universe is invisible. Detecting this dark matter will help astronomers better comprehend the universe’s destiny.”

So here is the latest, as the astrophysicists continue their guessing games. “Overall, dark energy is thought to contribute 73 percent of all the mass and energy in the universe. Another 23 percent is dark matter, which leaves only 4 percent of the universe composed of regular matter, such as stars, planets and people.” SPACE.com Senior Writer Clara Moskowitz.  So like I said, over 90% of the universe is missing. The very scientists who claim they KNOW there is no God, cannot find over 90% of His creation. I don’t know about you, but I think I will wait for the other 90% of the facts to arrive before I make any conclusions.

Nehemiah 9:6  “You alone are the LORD You have made the heavens, The heaven of heavens with all their host, The earth and all that is on it, The seas and all that is in them You give life to all of them And the heavenly host bows down before You.

Isaiah 24:4-6  The earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the heavens languish with the earth. 5 The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.

What About Public Education?

We may be testing the limits of civility now. Discussions of this topic are frequently known to degenerate into brawls. So let me say at the outset. I do not believe that all students should be forced to recite Bible verses. I do not believe that teaching of the creationist view of science is the only appropriate material for study. In fact, I am not at all sure I want public school teachers educating my children about anything to do with the Bible. In most cases that would be worse than the blind leading the blind.

I do believe, however in an honest, level playing field. As a scientist and a supporter of science education, I would far prefer honest admissions of where science is supportive of evolution theory and where it is not. I would appreciate sincere admissions, on the part of educators, that evolution is NOT in any way settled science.(1) Far from it. There is as much evidence contradicting the theory of evolution, as there is supporting evolution. (In my opinion there is actually vastly more contradictory evidence.) No right thinking science educator should allow students to be taught things that are untrue. But unfortunately, this is the state of affairs in public education today. Classrooms should be for facts, not propaganda.  And open minded discussions should be the rule when the facts are in dispute.

In schools and universities alike, students who question any of the underpinnings of evolution (for any reason) are often bullied and intimidated. They are often called science deniers, or anti-science Bible Thumpers. There are countless examples.  In describing his education, Dr Evan Jaimeson describes multiple occasions when, confronted with the scientific inconsistencies of the theory of evolution, “often there was an angry reaction and feeble, if any, explanations.”(2) He goes on to say “the lack of credible answers makes me quite skeptical of the theory of evolution.   After all it wasn’t an obscure theory; it was basically accepted worldwide and had been studied for many years.  Simple and obvious questions should have been given simple and obvious answers — so where were they?”(2)

But suppressing classroom debate does not advance the cause of truth. Just as suppressing free speech about other topics is counterproductive, taking an “evolution or else” approach is not good for students or for the educational system. There are many unknown effects that can occur with changes in worldview, and we are seeing many of these today. Few would say that the emotional and spiritual levels of peace of mind and satisfaction with life have increased in past decades. In fact, most would agree we are in the midst of a mental health crisis. Some part of this may be attributable to our feelings of meaninglessness and hopelessness as a result of evolutionary teaching.

Dr Ariel Roth , former director of the Geoscience Research Institute in Loma Linda California, writes, “When it comes to answering the great questions of origins, meaning, and destiny, science has lost its credentials.  This happened over a century ago when science decided to exclude God from its explanatory menu.  If God exists, science will never find Him as long as it refuses to consider God as a part of reality.”(3)

Any objective scientific examination of the texts used to teach science and to “debunk creationist nonsense” will find that most of the diagrams, facts, and statistics used to teach evolution are not only out of date, many are absolutely false. So perhaps the Bible-Thumpers and the Neander-Thumpers should all get together and choose a set of non-disputable facts that all can agree on. And perhaps that is what we should use to teach our children. When all else fails, stop to propaganda and teach the facts.

Isaiah 37:16  “O LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, who is enthroned above the cherubim, You are the God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth You have made heaven and earth.”

Evolution, God, and Probability

When evolutionary thinking was in its ascendancy, the arguments were often augmented with “anti-creation” factoids. One of the most common was “where did the universe come from?”  Another was “you can’t even explain where God came from!” Of course, if any creationist is honest and forthright, it seems impossible to “prove” creation or “prove” the existence of God. (Nor could any being on earth (created or evolved) ever be expected to understand or explain the origin of an almighty, ever-present, omniscient being such as God.)

This “where did God come from” argument seemed to blossom into a full-blown “anti-God movement” as society (and particularly the West) became ever more affluent and less dependent on God’s daily provision. There is something about living on a farm, or in the country, where you can see the summer rains come and watch the crops grow, that suggests a dependency on something higher. There is something about sunrises and sunsets, spring and fall, summertime and harvest, crickets and whippoorwills, that suggests we are not here by accident.

Nevertheless, at this time in history, in the fast-paced, fast food, fast internet 21st century, everyone fancies themselves a “scientist”. Everyone who has watched Star Trek or Star Wars fancies themselves an expert on black holes and quantum physics. We don’t need God. We have Science. We don’t need farms and rain, we can create our food in a lab. We don’t need marriage and monogamy. We can treat our STD’s with antibiotics and grow our babies in a test tube… if not now, in just a few years. We don’t want restrictions or responsibilities. We want freedom.

So if we are indeed scientists, and if we indeed believe in the power of the human mind to understand all things, we must believe all our scientific findings. Including those that do NOT support our presuppositions. Open-minded scientific inquiry is the basis of scientific advancement. Always. Foundationally. Except when it comes to evolution.

Evolutionists are quick to disallow the Law of Biogenesis (life only comes from life), proven by Louis Pasteur, stating it is only applicable today (not in the past). They will inevitably, when faced with the impossibility of their position (scientifically, biochemically, or statistically) resort to TIME as the explanation. TIME it seems can do the impossible. Life cannot come from non-life… unless you wait a really long TIME. Positive mutations are vastly outnumbered by neutral, negative, and lethal mutations, making evolution (of even ONE SINGLE organism) statistically impossible, unless you wait a really long TIME. The complexity of 3D folding proteins makes repeated sequential DNA point mutations incapable of advancing any organism with more and more complex features, unless, you guessed it… you wait a really long TIME. Time, it seems, can do anything.

There are just two areas that are absolutely out of bounds in modern institutes of higher learning. We are encouraged to study and advance virtually every possible area of inquiry except these two. We must keep our minds open to every possibility and aggressively pursue knowledge (with these two glaring exceptions.) We must not under any circumstances invoke the possibility of God, or a Creator, or a Higher power, and we must NEVER question the doctrine of evolution. We are our own gods. We created ourselves and raised ourselves up from the muck. We make our own rules. We bow to no one. Even when the evidence points to God, we cannot allow our minds to bend in that direction. God is anathema.

The trouble with this approach is it is unscientific. Even if you worship at the altar of the god of science, you will find the god of science pointing to a higher God. Take for example the writing of Julian Huxley, one of the most prominent evolutionists of the last century. He notes that at least a million positive mutations were required for the modern horse to evolve (although in reality, his understandably minuscule understanding of genomics and proteins resulted in a woefully gross under-estimation of this number of mutations, in reality, it is in the tens or hundreds of millions). Nevertheless, using this number he calculated the probability of a single cell to horse evolution to be “impossible” Of course he believed that Natural Selection was the answer (See prior post on Natural Selection). And thousands of “true believers” in evolution have done the same. For decades we have heard that although evolution would have been impossible otherwise… Natural Selection is the answer.

But can Natural Selection operate without mutation? No. It would still require single point DNA mutations (which it has been shown cannot bring about evolution). (See prior blog) What would it “select”? Those who attribute such power to natural selection understand neither natural selection nor mutations. Of course, for generations, scientists have been loath to admit that the ratio of positive to negative mutations is so astoundingly, infinitesimally small that this statistic alone should disallow evolution. But that is another topic entirely. In fact, negative, neutral, and lethal mutations are vastly more likely than positive mutations. Yet “science” believes in the process of evolution NOT because of the evidence, but IN SPITE of the evidence.

So much for an open-minded scientific approach. Even when all the scientific evidence says that the complexity of living systems could NEVER evolve by chance, that there are thousands of systems and proteins which are examples of irreducible complexity, and that life absolutely cannot evolve from non-life… our schools teach evolution.

As written by Brian Thomas, “Coded information in living things gives the full appearance of being purposefully programmed to resist just the kinds of DNA alterations that would harm organisms. Unfortunately for evolution, these are also just the kinds of DNA changes that would be required to turn microbes into man. Evolutionists have yet to find any realistic resolution to this problem, but for creationists it is no paradox at all. Instead, it is another cellular signature from the Creator.“(1)

Psalm 8:3-8  When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained; What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him? Yet You have made him a little lower than God, And You crown him with glory and majesty!
2 Peter 3:5 For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God,
