Evolution is a philosophy masquerading as a science.
To believe in evolution as the source of life makes you accountable only to what you want to accept. You are accountable only to what you want to be accountable to.
Once you are a Christian there is a set of values that God places firmly upon your life, you may not always follow themâ€¦but nonethelessâ€¦they are there.
GEN 1:1, In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
As COL 1:16-17, For by means of Him [in context Jesus Christ] were all [paz] things created [ktizo: the word can mean to completely change or transform something, or to create from no pre-existing materials here the later is used] in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible [this is the unseen spirit world but also we can draw the conclusion that is means down to the smallest atom], whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers.
ECC 3:11, He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart, yet so that man will not find out the work which God has done from the beginning even to the end.
The soul of the dicotomus man yearns for the spirit, man longs to be tricotomus, man longs to have the void filled.
-Cosmic/stellar/earth Evolution â€“ How the Universe/stars and the earth came into being.
-Macroevolution â€“ The claim that all life formed from earlier organized non-life and was done so through forms of mutation, natural selection, and required enormous amounts of time. Time is like the duct tape of the evolutionists, given enough time anything is possible, they say.
-Microevolution â€“ The limited variation that takes place in a species.
When it comes to the origin of life on this earth, there are only two possibilities: creation or spontaneous generation (evolution). There is no third way. Spontaneous generation was disproved 100 years ago,
but that leads us only to one other conclusion: that of supernatural creation. We cannot accept that on philosophical grounds (personal reasons); therefore, we choose to believe the impossible: that life arose spontaneously by pure chance.
The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.
He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name.
PSA 19:1 “The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.”
Evolution = From chaos to perfection.
Creation = The Universe and all in it was brought into being by a special completed process as a functioning, complete and balanced whole by God.
You cannot live with one foot in each camp.
Panspermia: Theory suggests that life seeds came from outer space and planets exchanged life. Panspermia literally means seeds everywhere.
Greek philosopher Anaxagoras, who influenced Socrates. Aristotle held that spontaneous generation occurred and was preferred by science for more than two thousand years.
God owns all the science, all true science.
There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God and Jesus Christ.
Where did we come from?
What is the purpose of life?
Why are we here?
What happens when we die?
JOH 18:39 Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?”
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”
Complex creatures evolve from more simplistic ancestors naturally over time. As random genetic mutations occur within an organismâ€™s genetic code, the beneficial mutations are preserved because they aid in survival.
This is a process known as natural selection. These beneficial mutations are passed on to the next generation. Over time, beneficial mutations accumulate and the result is an entirely different organism.
Darwin’s Theory of Evolution - Slowly But Surely...
Natural selection acts only by taking advantage of slight successive variations; she can never take a great and sudden leap, but must advance by short and sure, though slow steps.
If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications (hello sea slug), my theory would absolutely break down. Such a complex organ would be known as an irreducibly complex system.
To suppose that the eye with all its [complex parts] for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberrations, could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.
Either Macro-evolution is happening SO SLOW that we do not see it today. Fossil records do not show intermediate forms between different animal groups. Or Macro-evolution happened SO FAST that the fossil record did not or could not record it.
Fred Hoyle (a devout atheist) stated this:
“Two thousand different and very complex enzymes are required for a simple living organism to exist.Â Random shuffling processes could not form a single one of these even in 20 billion years.Â
I don’t know how long it is going to be before astronomers generally recognize that the arrangement of not even one of the many thousand of biopolymers (Life molecules) on which life depends could have been arrived at by natural processes here on earth.
“Astronomers will have little difficulty in understanding this because they will be assured by biologists that it is not so; the biologists having been assured in their turn by others that it is not so.Â The ‘others’ are groups of persons who believe, quite openly, in mathematical miracles.
