“By coupling undirected, purposeless variation to the blind, uncaring process of natural selection, Darwin made theological or spiritual explanations of life processes superfluous.”
Or so one textbook claimed, summing up the general view presented by Darwinists. But is this true? Couldn’t God have used evolution to create the universe? Does evolution explain the history of life, or is it lacking in the answers necessary to prove itself true? These are questions I’ve been asking for several years now, and I am challenging myself to discover which makes more sense: Creation or random chance? My goal is to examine the facts with an unbiased viewpoint in an effort to discover the truth.
Cambridge graduate and director of the Center of Science and Culture at the Discovery Institute in Seattle, Stephen C. Meyer once said, “Many evolutionary biologists admit that science can not categorically exclude the possibility that some kind of deity still might exist. Nor can they deny the possibility of a divine designer who masks his creative activity in apparently natural processes as to escape scientific detection. Yet for most scientific materialists, such an undetectable entity hardly seems worthy of consideration.” I have always wondered why scientists are so averse to believe that God created the universe and guides it today, what about this repels them. On the other hand, I’ve always wondered what they believe instead that can have them so convinced that they are right and God can’t possibly exist. Unsure of which side has the evidence to support their theory, I decided to explore the data gathered from studies and draw some conclusions.
In this blog, my goal is to examine the evidence for both Christianity and evolution through studying the images of evolution, cosmology, physics, scientific laws and principles, irreducible complexity, biological machines and transport systems, the DNA map of life, Darwinian scenarios, and other biological, chemical, and biochemical arguments. I do not pretend to have all the answers. This is just a record of my investigation into science. I’ve met many people who have the same questions I do, and from both sides of the argument. They’ve asked me questions I’ve been unable to answer, and I’m sure that more of them will come up. I welcome the challenge of answering questions, so as I present theories and facts, please ask questions if you have them, and I will do my utmost to answer them.
