|Arguments Against Evolution|
This page is provided to answer a specific question, but don't get tied up in detail and forget where you are going. You get past the questions/attacks so you can proclaim the Gospel. It is the proclamation of the Gospel, not argumentation, that transforms minds. See Give Them the Gospel. If you have not read Stories Versus Truth, you may want to read that before reading this.
Evolution is NOT Science
Many things are called science. Search for "the science of" on the internet and you will see that the word, science, has been so abused that it hardly has a meaning any longer. The reason for this is that operational science, the kind of science by which we discover new ways to help ourselves live a better life, has shown itself to be very effective. By this kind of science, operational science, we have many breakthroughs in transportation, medicine, manufacturing, and in virtually every area of the physical realm. If we talk about another kind of science, say, the science of dating, or the science of effective public speaking, or the science of evolution, we are using the same word to mean something very different. This is confusing. Why do so many people want to use the word, science, and apply it to whatever they are selling? Because it makes their product seem to be valid. Evolution is a story about history. History happened in the past. Operational science can only be used to test those things that can be observed. There are no scientific techniques that are adequate to examine God or heaven or hell or Satan, for instance. If you were able to make an observation, how would you repeat it so someone else could verify it? Science is not a valid tool to test in these areas. Operational science can only be used to test those things that are in the present. It cannot be used to test things in the past of future. Science can test things that are in the present. We see fossils. Some of these fossils are similar though coming from very different kinds of animals. Each kind of animal is distinct, however, from other kinds of animals. We see considerable variation within a kind of animal, but we don't see millions of transitions where there is no real line of distinction between one kind of animal and another. That is what science can tell us. Historical science, such as Evolution, or Creation, or Intelligent Design, makes up creative stories about the fossils. Those stories are not science. The Bible is a historical account of creation as it actually happened. God has revealed, to Christians today, that the Bible is the Word of God and that it is historically correct. Some Evolutionists get so wrapped up in their religion (Evolutionism) that they claim that God cannot reveal or that it is irrational to say that God reveals. If God cannot speak, that would mean that the Bible is incorrect, because the Bible repeatedly says that God speaks to us. And our experience is that God does speak to us. The Evolutionists are claiming that we are experiencing what we are experiencing in the spiritual realm. In this, the Evolutionists are irrational. They are making a truth-claim of a universal negative. They are claiming that, because they have no way of measuring it, therefore it cannot exist. This is an insane position, yet they hold to it and press for laws to enforce it.
There are many arguments against Evolution. From a scientific standpoint, the hypothesis does not hold water. From a biblical view, there is no way to reconcile Evolution with the Bible. The impact on society is to bring misery and cruelty. Concerning human life, Evolution cheapens human life to a point near worthlessness. Concerning ethics, Evolutionism removes any logical basis for integrity or real morality. Concerning racism, Evolutionism creates the only logical basis for racism.
At SeekFind.net website, we define science as knowledge. However, physics, chemistry, and true biology had seemed to be the source of many benefits. I say, "seemed to be" because the reality is that any knowledge that is knowledge comes from God. Any benefit that is a benefit comes from God. His rain falls on the righteous and the unrighteous. The scientist may observe and study, but it is God Who pulls back the veil so that the scientist can see. In the public opinion, though, the word, science, had been associated in people's minds with benefits and credibility. When this happened, the Atheists (Secular Humanist Religion), made their move to use the technique of labeling to make their theology seem credible. They labeled Evolution as science. They labeled Naturalism as science. They labeled materialism as science. They labeled uniformitarianism as science. And many other philosophies and theologies of the Secular Humanists we now find labeled, in the public opinion, as science. But they are not knowledge. They are fanciful fables.
Quote from ICR.org: "Evolutionary Faith" might well be the title of the elaborate exhibitions in the nation's famed Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. In many beautiful displays, the evolution of the earth and its inhabitants is treated as axiomatic with its histories laid out in impressive diorama and narrative accounts. Yet in all these exhibits, it is impossible to find one single evidence of real evolution! Evolution is apparently a non-theistic religious faith, which a gullible citizenry is expected to believe simply because the "scientists" say so. (Read More) Note that the term, "Evolutionary Faith," is not faith at all. Real faith is always based on reality.
Google "the science of" and you will get a list of things that you never thought were science. This difficulty of defining science once the word has become polluted, is the clearly shown in this article: From a Legal Standpoint, What Is Science?
Evolutionism started as a fanciful fable that seemed, on the surface, to roughly fit the observations of Charles Darwin. Now, Evolution is increasingly becoming a series of speculative stories to explain away the scientific observations that are evidence of the biblical account of creation of the universe and all life by God.
Increasingly, scientists are explaining away their observations rather than following observations of reality to come to an understanding of what is real. There is no other area of science where this is more the case than it is with the area of the study of origins. According to some of the definitions of science, the study of origins is not science by definition of the word, science. However, most people think of the study of origins as science. Most scientists are staunch, dogmatic followers of Evolutionism. That paradigm of Evolutionistic thinking is so ingrained in their minds that they cannot see reality. When they publish papers, they write of discoveries that really speak loudly of a recent creation, a loving creator, a fall away from that creator, a global flood, and much of the other historical information that we all can read in the Bible. Then, they explain away what they have seen.
The Kingdom of Heaven is the only thing that is really really real. The Kingdom of the Heavens is Reality.
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. At least, no one has ever been able to observe information being added despite many tax dollars trying to do so. Most mutations aren't detrimental enough, however, for Natural Selection to operate. 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. The changes in information always go in the wrong direction.
