The evolutionist reasons thus: We exist (A rather indisputable fact), therefore somehow we must have evolved. To them the details are arguable, but evolution, itself, is not: It is an undeniable fact. Science has never even gotten close to proving it, but, to the evolutionist, it is the only viable option. Anyone that sees it another way must be less intelligent than primordial ooze. However, evolution is not nearly as scientific as they would have us believe. Using no more than some common sense reasoning, I would like to demonstrate that evolution is about as scientific as the tooth fairy, and not nearly as much fun.
Before you continue, please reread the first sentence above, and keep it firmly in your mind. In order to believe that mankind evolved, one must make hundreds of assumptions, and believe that every one of them conveniently occurred. This is extremely unscientific, but the evolutionist really has no other choice. I will introduce a few of the many. The first person pulls itself out of the slime onto dry ground. (I didn’t make a mistake on that neuter pronoun). Evolution assumes gender; in fact, it assumes two genders. Not only that, but it assumes that both of them were co-existent in a contiguous region. Add to that the assumption that both of them possessed a mating instinct. Continue by assuming that she didn’t have a headache. Add to this the significant requirement that they both had the anatomy and physiology necessary to procreate. Within these necessities lie multitudinous assumptions far too numerous to enumerate in this short article—any one of which would have prevented humanity’s future existence. Even in our modern times with tremendous technology and knowledge, fertility cannot be considered a given. How about also assuming that the female had a maternal instinct, mammary glands, and the intelligence to rear offspring. My, how these assumptions pile up! At the point that any one of the above failed to occur, mankind slid back into the ooze.
When Darwin made his proposals, science knew nothing of the genetic code, and could have never guessed its complexity. Even among knuckle-dragging, pre-historic beings, that code had to exist. Evolution has to assume that the DNA was principally correct very early. Ever study the endocrine system? Tiny deviations in secretions can cause horrific results. Evolution must assume not only the existence of the organs, but proper regulation of hormones. When one reads about the supposed ecosystem of our early forbearers, he finds what seems to be a filthy environment. What if the folks way back when were bereft of an immune system? How long could humanity have continued? Probably not even long enough to produce offspring. Now the evolutionist knows that all of these things existed and functioned properly because we are all here.
How about those peepers? Modern science tells us that the human eye is extremely complicated. Obviously, if the whole human race were blind, life would be practically impossible on even the most elementary level. If one accepts evolution, he has no option but to believe that this complexity was an accident. What intelligence, without even knowing of the existence of sight, would dictate to the body the necessity of the eye, and then cause it to be properly formed? Of course, with evolution, this has to be assumed. Therein lies the pseudo-scientific difficulty. Not a single fossil has ever been discovered that chronicles in any way the development of even one of these things that must be assumed. And you thought that creation was unscientific. It is! But an intelligent Creator explains our complex existence far better than random chance. And an endless list of assumptions isn’t scientific! Assumptions are permitted for a time in the hypothesis stage, and, perhaps for a while in the theory stage, but they must definitely be discarded by the time the theory has become scientific law. Therefore, evolution isn’t science: it is faith; and it is held with a vehemence and intolerance that brooks no competition.
We, on the other hand, by faith accept that “in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth,” and that mankind was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:1 & 27). Faith? Yes, but reasonable faith. One may, by faith, believe that mankind evolved—he cannot, however, prove it by a preponderance of truly scientific evidence.
