An evolutionary idea
One of the biggest handicaps Christians have is being bullied into thinking evolution is true and thus the Bible cannot be trusted. We need to revisit this idea. Christians kids that go to college are often ridiculed because they believe something as primitive and unscientific and Christianity. It should help these kids to understand how sad this so-called "science" really is.
Darwin had two theories. The first was natural selection. The idea that existence is a contest and only the most fit would survive was attractive to Margaret Sanger (founder of planned parenthood) and Adolph Hitler (founder of WWII). While we can see some support for this idea by the fact that most slow cockroaches have been eliminated from the gene pool, the idea that we can improve ourselves by eliminating "inferior" people or races has begun to fall out of favor.
Darwin's second idea was that continual mutations bring new species to the survival arena. He thought these two ideas worked together to try to explain how dirt became people. What Darwin did not understand was that in the 150 years since his observations not one favorable or advantageous mutation has ever been observed. There have been trillions upon trillions of unfavorable mutations. The reason for this is that an unfavorable mutation only needs one thing to go wrong. A favorable mutation would need a million things to go right all at the same time while the exact same mutations were also occurring in another organism of the opposite sex so that these two mutations would be reproduce-able.
People often point to dinosaur bones as proof of evolution. However, since reptiles get larger the longer they live and people didn't eat meat and lived longer before the flood, we might expect some reptiles to get very large. It should also not be surprising that a world wide flood would cause some species to become extinct. We also might consider that after the flood when people were allowed to eat meat that the mastodon was a little slower than the elephant.
Science has proven Darwin half right. We do lose genetic information and species become extinct. However, there is no source of new genetic information. Randomness only produces cancers, tumors, and decay. It is sad that what passes for science today is not a search for truth, but a complex arrangement of grant money, tenure, sucking up to get graduate degrees, and publishing papers that conform to expectations and political correctness.
There is one source for truth and wisdom in the universe. Once you unplug yourself from that source, you are vulnerable to being tossed to and fro by every passing fancy. Evolution and its associated ideas are promulgated to provide a snug nest in which those who reject God can feel comfortable. These are not scientists declaring truth but propagandists providing pacifiers. They can achieve high levels of sincerity because they have first deceived themselves.
Romans 1:21-22 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
The dust on the moon is 1/2" deep, there are no "transition" life forms in the fossil record, and all humans are descended from one female (mitochondrial DNA). To laugh at the Bible for being not "scientific" while declaring that nothing existed and then it blew up and became people is way past sad.
