I don’t normally like to take issues head on, but this one has been on my mind lately. I’m editing a video lecture by Dr. Robert Carter of Creation Ministries International, and along the way listening to his material I got to think….
Popular opinion today is “We may not know how evolution works, but it has to somehow.” Granted, this opinion is most prevalent in English speaking cultures. Where did the idea come from? Well, you learned about evolution from your school, most likely. Do you believe everything your school taught you?
The schools got it from various committees. The committees got it from various academic publishers. The publishers got it from universities, and the universities got it from outspoken professional scientists.
Where did the scientists get it? Have you ever wondered if there are fossils showing transitional stages of life forms? Have you ever asked yourself if their dating methods are scientifically proved to be accurate? Have you though they just might be some wholes in the evolutionary theory?
I call it a theory because that is what it is. Many are taught today the evolution has been scientifically proven as factual, but on the other hand there is no undeniable evidence the evolutionists can provide. In fact, they have very little to back up the theory except for Charles Darwin’s writings. What backs up Charles Darwin? Not much. In fact, all of his theories—which they were, since he was not a scientist that could test his theories—have been proven scientifically wrong.
This is not just my opinion. There are many scientists today that disagree with evolution, yet we still push it off as truth to the ignorant masses. Why do we teach evolution publicly when we know there are holes in it? Because “We don’t have any better theories.” That is what many scientists have been willing to admit.
So with no evidence proving it is true, and given all the other possibilities out there that could explain the processes of nature, why do we—the people—still believe it?
There is one credible theory out there: creation. Granted, creation explains how the world came about. Creation does not altogether explain the natural processes we now witness in the physical world, but the physical world does reflect what you would expect to find as physical evidence of creation if the universe is indeed young as creationists’ position claims.
