Happy B-day Chuck!

Well, this month marks the 200th birthday of Charles Darwin, founder of the evolutionary theory. There will be celebrations all across the globe, but interestingly most will be here in the United States. The popularity of Darwinism is not rooted in man’s love for science, but man's love for themselves. Darwin finally gave man a “scientific” reason to ignore God and His moral law written on our hearts. What fuels the spread of Darwinism is a commitment that all of life has its origins in the natural (physically observable) world. AKA “Naturalistic Philosophy.” A philosophy, not a true science.

Unfortunately most evolutionary scientists have committed themselves to a “science” of continually changing and evolving theories to try to answer life’s questions. Because of the many theoretical inconsistencies, complexity of organisms, and plain lack of evidence, many scientists who are willing to think are beginning to search beyond purely natural origins for the cause of life. (while still attempting to eliminate God from the equations) What’s becoming popular over the last few decades is the “seeded” life theory, which includes the possibility that life was seeded from extraterrestrials. (seriously) This theory just pushes the origin questions back further. ( much like the continual expansion of time “answer” given in need to explain life’s complexities. )

Evolution has fueled racism, genocide, slavery, cut-throat capitalism (ahem), the abandonment of moral principles, the suicide rate, and the general decline of society. (to name some of its woes) This is nothing to celebrate.

Creation is not something that we should just learn at a special side room class on Sunday mornings. It’s not extracurricular Christianity, it is absolutely foundational truth. The Bible starts with the creation account for a reason! All vain philosophies stem from the belief that God has nothing to do with our existence. If we are going to truly reach this world with the Gospel we must break-through our culture with anointed truth and revelation of our intentional design by God.

I would challenge you to learn the scientific answers that combat the bad science of evolution! We shouldn’t attempt to argue scripture with science, as scripture carries no authority to those who don’t give it authority. However, we can easily argue bad science with good science. A great resource I’ve come across is http://www.icr.org

Folks, WE WERE CREATED!! Life, the planet, the solar system, the universe was created IN PLACE!! Animals were created each “after their own kind,” with the genetic ability to adapt. ( but not beyond their kind! ) Man was created unique to all creation, in the image of God, from the dirt by the breath of God!! We have a SPIRIT!! ….because God is SPIRIT!! We are SPIRITUAL whether we want to admit it or not!!

Father, raise up prophets to the culture who clearly demonstrate the reality of Creation. Take the blinders off this generation to see Your wonders, that all “are without excuse.” Let this generation come out of our “strong delusion” that life evolved out of nothing. Continually release new scientific discoveries that astound the world, and point to a designer. Amen. – Richy Clark


“Rom. 1:20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse..”

Where did this come from? There's not one competent scientist in the world who thinks aliens started life here on earth. You're either making things up, or you've been lied to.

What's this about lack of evidence? Evolutionary biology is soaked with evidence, evidence more powerful than Darwin could have ever imagined possible.

Biologists who compare DNA sequences of different living species can determine evolutionary relationships with 100% accuracy. For example, the idea that people and chimps share an ancestor has been proven repeatedly and more evidence for this scientific fact continues to pour in. Your "lack of evidence" is nonsense. You obviously don't know what you're talking about.

Evolution has religious implications, but that's your problem, and biologists are not interested in your problems.

If you want to learn how the first simple living cells developed more than three billion years ago you can click my name to watch a ten minute video, or if you prefer you can continue spreading lies about science (if you don't mind being laughed at).

SWEEET a heckler. I will joyfully address your response as soon as my family goes to sleep tonight.

What have the idiots who work for ICR contributed to biology? What discoveries have they made?

I suggest you should visit any biology blog, recommend the Institute for Magic Research, and then read what they say after they stop laughing.

If you click my name again you will see a different ten minute video. This video explains one of the many reasons biologists are 100% certain chimpanzee apes and human apes are distant cousins.

Grow up mister. Your magic space man didn't have anything to do with the diversity of life.

SWEEET a heckler. I will joyfully address your response as soon as my family goes to sleep tonight.

Why not instead consider the possibility I'm right and you're wrong?

Please notice I have virtually every single biologist in the world on my side. If you disagree with me, you're insulting the integrity and competence of thousands of scientists, scientists who work at places like MIT and Harvard, scientists who have made important contributions to biology, scientists who have an understanding of life that you couldn't even begin to imagine.

Try Richard Dawkins, the most well know evolutionary biologist in the world. (who considers it as a possibility on film!)

Or here’s a bunch of other “Top Scientists”

Or along the lines of life coming from outside earth… comets..

“Evolutionary biology is soaked with evidence, evidence more powerful than Darwin could have ever imagined possible.”

Name some?
Consider the fossil record. (which Darwin states should display abundant proof of clear transitions) We have NO forms in transition? Fossils discovered are complete organisms. Creationists believe that animals have the ability to adapt horizontally, that is remain in their kind. Like the variety of dogs. ( But not vertical evolution, like a dog becoming a bird because he’s always dreamed of flying. )

“Biologists who compare DNA sequences of different living species can determine evolutionary relationships with 100% accuracy. …..”

Seeing similar DNA in living organisms does not prove their ancestry. Land dwelling animals need lungs and have similar DNA that tell the cells to develop lungs etc… Doesn’t mean they came from each other, just have similar needs. The mentioned “100% accuracy” is based on a great assumption (common ancestry), not actually simple facts. Creationists actually believe that living organisms WOULD have similar DNA (or instructions) on how to grow, ‘cause we ARE similar…living off oxygen, the sun etc…

“Evolution has religious implications, but that's your problem, and biologists are not interested in your problems.”

Actually science is not threatening to a person with a Christian worldview, because science continually supports a creative mind behind existence. It just depends on the “lens” you are looking through. True Christians are concerned about evolution not because they want to hold on with dear life to their “religion,” but are concerned for those who buy into the lie that your life is purposeless.

I don’t mind being laughed at. I do have a bald head, and that already generates some ridicule.

Thanks for your comment!

ICR dudes are pretty cool. Here's some stuff they've done and are doing.. http://www.icr.org/article/what-comes-after-rate/

"Magic" would be beautiful co-dependent living things coming out of nothing into great and perfect order!

I would easily say it take more faith to believe in evolution than it does in a Creator. Magic would be much better associated with naturalistic philosophy.

Check out "Anthropic Principal"
"Irreducible Complexity" Etc..

Thanks for the comment!l

bobxxxx do some research before you get so confidant in what you’re assuming... crystals and aliens .. the seeded theory... these are really what evolutionist say they believe... out of their own mouths... or magic.. anything but a designer right?... look around. - ARB
