Evolution Isnít a Science but a Philosophy.
Evolution asserts that things become more complex over time. Wandering chemicals somehow combine to form simple cells, which somehow combine to form simple organisms, then fish, mammals, and finally, man. But the evidence that it happens isn’t there. And no laboratory has ever created a simple living cell. From the book, Evolution and Human Destiny, (pub. New York Philosophical Society, 1952) by Fred Kohler, "One of the most fundamental maxims of the physical sciences is the trend toward greater randomness - the fact that, on the average, things will get into disorder rather than into order, if left to themselves. This is essentially the statement that is embodied in the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This scientific law actually refutes and contradicts the theory of evolution in its entirety. The whole universe is not getting better and more specialized. It is running down. It is wearing out as predicted by the Second Law of Thermodynamics. “ Thus, things wear out, break down, and if left to themselves, become simpler and not more complex.
And have you ever noticed the exquisite order and precision of creation, from subatomic particles, to animal life, to the stars themselves? Why is there order if things break down?
Most adherents of evolution believe everything began with the Big Bang. But there’s three immediate problems: 1. Where did the starting matter come from? Something had to have set off the Bang. Evolution presents a philosophical impossibility – how could something come out of nothing? 2. What was the trigger mechanism for the Big Bang? Still unknown. 3. The Big Bang was not observed, so how did we know it happened as postulated?
Have fossils been found to prove the existence of transitional forms, necessary for evolution? No. Dr. David Raup was the Curator of Geology, Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, and in the January 1979 edition of Field Museum of Natural History Bulletin, p. 22, he said, “Well, we are now about 120 years after Darwin and the knowledge of the fossil record has been greatly expanded. We now have a quarter of a million fossil species but the situation hasn’t changed much. The record of evolution is still surprisingly jerky and, ironically, we have even fewer examples of evolutionary transition than we had in Darwin’s time. By this I mean that some of the classic cases of darwinian change in the fossil record, such as the evolution of the horse in North America, have had to be discarded or modified as a result of more detailed infomation ... “
Natural and sexual selection are very important to Darwins’ theories. But scientists dispute their validity. Dr. Colin Patterson, the Senior Paleontologist of the British Museum of Natural History in London, in a March 4, 1982 BBC television interview, said, “There is no doubt that natural selection is a mechanism, that it works. It has been repeatedly demonstrated by experiment. There is no doubt at all that it works. But the question of whether it produces new species is quite another matter. No one has ever produced a species by mechanisms of natural selection.”
So evolution isn’t a science, but a point of view, a philosophy. Thales of Miletus (640-546 B.C.) first originated the idea of a cycle of development. He believed that all of life began with a single element – water – from which all other elements arose. From these developed plants, animals and finally man. Thales broke away from mythological explanations and believed that all life arose out of the seas. Thales may have been a keen observer of nature but didn't cite supposed fossil evidence, had never observed evolution producing new, more advanced life forms, and lacked modern research tools. The scientific method requires that a theory must be observable, repeatable, and testable. Neither evolution nor special creation can meet these tests. Both have to be taken on faith.
"We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs," Harvard biologist Richard Lewontin once candidly admitted, "in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated, just—so—stories, because we have a prior commitment . . . to materialism . . . We cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door" ("Billions and Billions of Demons," New York Review of Books, Jan. 9, 1997, p. 31). This is a frank admission of scientific bias.
It takes more faith to believe in evolution than creationism. So with that and the scientific and philosophical problems of evolution I believe God created the world and man as recorded in the Bible.
