There are many aspects to evolutionary theory that make it unbelievable. The very idea that the complexity of living organisms can have its origins in nothing but inorganic matter is ridiculous. Evolutionary scientists have no idea how it happened beyond wild speculation. The probability that amino acids could spontaneously order themselves in very specific ways to produce proteins which then form complex interacting groupings to achieve a myriad of complex functions is so ludicrous it beggars belief. How DNA, the brains behind cellular life, could ever form on its own is unimaginable. Then there is the way the universe, our planet and our solar system in particular are so very finely tuned to make life possible. These so called cosmological constants only have to be minutely altered to make life and even the cosmos impossible. It simply cannot happen by chance.
But, lets get down to something a lot more basic that even we lesser mortals can ponder before concluding evolution must be wrong. One of the key evolutionary principles concerns what is called the survival of the fittest. Evolutionists claim life grew in complexity as it self-selected on the basis of survivability. The most complex and highly evolved ‘animal’, according to evolutionists, is us – Man. They claim we got to where we are today because some small apes decided to drop out of the trees, for which they were supremely well designed, and make it on the forest floor.
Think about it. Why would an animal, designed to depend on its tree-dwelling ability decide to head for the ground? Every fibre of its natural instinct would have told it to stay in the safety of the trees. To try to make it on the ground is to defy the very survival of the fittest doctrine. On the ground small apes are highly vulnerable to predators. True, they might have ventured on to the ground to forage for some types of food, but they would have fled to the trees every time a sabre-tooth headed their way. Their vulnerability would have mitigated against ground adaptation. Their whole pelvic design, for example, makes flight on the ground almost impossible. To adapt to terrestrial living they would have had to stay on the ground for many generations, according to evolutionary theory, but that would have left them at the mercy of just about every known predator. They would not be fit to survive on the ground. The great apes can survive on the ground because they are large enough to see off most predators, but even they are restricted to a very small habitat, suited to their survival. The small apes, the Australopithicines, which the evolutionists claim were our forebears, had no size or strength advantage, no speed advantage and no fighting advantage. Their only hope lay in the trees. It is therefore reasonable to conclude the man from apes idea is unworkable – using evolutionary theory’s own dictum.
The fact is real empirical science has been replaced , by evolutionists like Richard Dawkins, with scientism; a religious dogma that insists God cannot exist and therefore everything must owe its origins to chance and the sole operation of natural laws, even if those very laws cannot make something out of nothing and cannot emerge on their own from nothing. Dawkins and his ilk pretend to get past this fact by waiving it aside with “we’re working on that”. This is tantamount to the blind faith they attribute to Christianity.
What is even more sad than this self-delusion is the fact that so many Christians think that a fairytale called evolution needs to be superimposed over an all powerful, all knowing God to produce everything there is while God sits idly by and watches with impotent interest. They have adopted their own form of scientism. If Jesus is Lord then he is the king of and creator of creativity itself. If he is Lord he is capable of bringing everything into being and he has told us that is exactly what he did. If Jesus is Lord, no ape needed to swing down out of a tree. God created the tree, the ape and Man. When Christians swallow the evolutionary lie they deny Jesus is Lord – Romans 10:9. If they are prepared to believe in evolution any old lie that comes along will be just as easily accepted. The leadership of the Church has allowed this appalling state of affairs to develop and it is at them that God will point his staff of justice.
