Enough! There has been so much evidence presented over the last 20 years or so against Darwinian evolution as a means for the origin of complex life that even those in the science community who say they are not religious are standing up against it. However, most who are unwilling to accept the evidence are so tied to the idea of evolution (financially or emotionally) that they cannot bring themselves to be objective, which is exactly what they say about those who are on the other side.
I have heard it said that many intelligent people believe in evolution as a means for the origin of life because other intelligent people believe in evolution as a means for the origin of life. Is this intelligence or blind faith? I’m glad that many of us unintelligent types are questioning the lack of evidence and incoherence in Darwinian evolution, maybe the “Emperor of evolution” will finally be told by more than one person that he is not wearing any clothes!
Who was Darwin and what is his theory of evolution?
In the mid 1800’s Charles Darwin, an English Naturalist, took the idea of evolution and wrote books called The Origin of Species and Descent of Man. In these books Darwin used his studies from a one time visit to the Galapagos Islands and made an assumption that the observable changes he saw within species, such as variations in finch beak size, was the mechanism that cause one kind of living thing to evolve into another. From this he developed a theory of the origin of all species, including humans. This theory takes an awful leap of faith from the observable microevolution (changes within families or kinds) to the unobservable and nonexistent macroevolution (a change from one family or kind into another). Sadly this is the only theory that is allowed to be taught in our public schools today.

Watch this 52 minute movie-documentary called “Icons of Evolution” that provides some startling evidence against evolution’s most famous icons:
Charles Darwin, said this about his own theory: “Why then is not every geological formation and every stratum full of such intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely graduated organic chain; and this, perhaps, is the most obvious and gravest objection which can be urged against my theory.”
Darwin also admitted: “If it should be determined that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down.”
As we now have available to us, through the abundance of evidence from modern science and technology, Darwin’s theory does absolutely break down.
The Problem: Evolutionary theory uses philosophy not science. Evolutionary theory has become a religion in and of itself. Questions of origin require forensic science and cannot use empirical science alone. Therefore all reasonable evidence must be allowed in the door.
Biblical creation and the theory of “Intelligent Design” has by far the most reasonable evidence, and in abundance, so why is it so quickly dismissed in the scientific community?
Michael Ruse, (Ardent evolutionist and ex Christian) Professor of Philosophy and Zoology @ the University of Gwelth in Canada has said… “Evolution is promoted by its practitioners as more than a mere science. Evolutions is promulgated as an ideology, a secular religion—a full fledged alternative to Christianity, with meaning and morality…Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning and it is true of evolution still today.”
“Scientists who go about teaching that evolution is a fact of life are great con-men, and the story they are telling may be the greatest hoax ever! In explaining evolution we do not have one iota of fact.” -Dr. Newton Tahmisian, Atomic Energy Commission
Watch this awe inspiring one hour (and fourteen minute) movie-documentary called Darwin’s Dilemma, it contains a more in-depth look into some of the most compelling evidence against Darwinian evolution:
First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires…But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these same waters also the world of that time was destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. 2 Peter 3:3-7
Join us next week as we continue our investigation in support of the Genesis account.
You will not find this material in the public school curriculum even though it is based on solid evidence and grounded in research. It is ironic that following the evidence to where it leads stops at the door of our public schools as they will not let a “Divine footprint” in! Join us this year as we examine evidence for Christianity and learn how to become a thoughtful defender and ambassador of your faith.
