|How is the presentation of evolution similar to the performance of a magic trick?|
The scientific journals, when dealing with Evolutionism, are using more magic words these days. Natural selection is supposed, by these "scientists" to be doing miraculous things. Impossible things! They turn nature into a god. In fact, some of them even reference Mother Nature. They use circular reasoning, presupposition, and many other means to pull off their flimflam.
Depending on which definition you use, Natural Selection can be real. It works to eliminate severe mutations. Natural Selection can mean different things depending on the context in which it is used, though. Some of those contexts actually try to transform Natural Selection into molecules-to-man Evolution. They also try to confuse people into believing that small adaptations (calling this micro-evolution, which is a deceiving term.) add up to molecules-to-man Evolution. At other times, Natural Selection is written about as if it were an intelligent all-powerful god that thinks things through and does them. But Natural Selection as a description of the way that severe mutations result in the death of the mutated life form is real. It can't add information and it appears that mutation never adds any information either. There is no record of anyone who has actually observed information being added despite many tax dollars trying to do so. There are stories that say this has happened on Atheistic sites and in Atheistic books, but it has not happened. (Read the latest science on the subject: Without Excuse by Werner Gitt, a description of the scientific Laws of Universal Information. See also: Information Theory Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4. Here is another interesting article.) More is constantly being learned about information and about the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Evolutionists tend to hide in the weeds of the unknown with an argument from ignorance: "If you can't prove, by empirical science, that evolution is impossible, then it happened." By empirical science alone, we can only prove probabilities. The probabilities show the Big-Bang-Billions-of-Years-No-Flood-Molecules-to-Man story to be a bazaar hypothesis, a story that is so improbable that it should not be considered. However, empirical science is not a tool that can prove anything to be true or false absolutely. For absolute proof, we have revelation. (See Basic and Concise Guide to Practical, Useful Logic and Reasoning). God says that He created everything. He is the One Who enforces the laws of nature. He is the One Who will judge all of us in the end. We know that because we know Him presonally through the indwelling Presence of Jesus Christ and the moment-by-moment instruction of the Holy Spirit.
Most mutations aren't detrimental enough, however, for Natural Selection to operate and mutations always lose information. Small mutations can build up in a population over time and cause extinction. It is illegitimate to use Natural Selection to support Evolution. Natural Selection supports a young Earth and a Creator. Evolution has a troubling information problem.
