Evolution is Outdated and in Crisis

The Bible is timeless. The Bible is inspired by the Eternal and Almighty Holy Spirit. At the time of Moses, he was led by the Holy Spirit to write the Book of Genesis and by divine revelation he penned the first three chapters to record the Creation and origin of everything. These chapters

Genesis 1:1-3 "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light".

We learn from the First Chapter of Genesis, that God created everything in six literal 24 hour days and then on the Seventh day he rested. The Seventh day teaches us that Creation is created for a 7 day cycle and one day is for rest and worship of the One True and Living God. This God is approached through the One Mediator who is the Lord Jesus Christ. This Day of rest and worship is now called the Christian Sabbath, something observed by the true church. This is the First Day of the week and it is the day upon which Jesus Christ was raised from the dead.

However, evolutionary theory opposes the idea of the origin of all things being by the God revealed in the Bible. Despite 150 years of discussion, Charles Darwin's Victorian theory still has not produced a definitive answer of the origin of things. In recent times, people are becoming disillusioned with evolution as a plausible answer to explain things scientifically and philosophically. I contend here that evolution is outdated and also in crisis.

Recently, A. N. Wilson has written a book called "Charles Darwin: Victorian Myth-maker" and the Times Newspaper carried a two page article promoting the ideas in the book. Charles Darwin's book written in 1859 "On the Origin of Species" may well have become a very influential piece of literature, but 150 years later with close reflection, we cannot call this book high level science. It is basic, it is flawed at a simple level and it is insupportable in its thin evidence of its findings.

There is an excellent DVD called "Unlocking the Mystery of Life" which provides a documentary whereby recent scientists observe "intelligent design" within Creation. Intelligent design contradicts evolution. These scientists observe cell structures which have a complicated design which cannot be explained by evolutionary development. This observation opposes Darwin's ideas that everything advances by undirected natural processes. These observed cells are fitted with an intelligent "out=board motor" system, one which can never have developed by random processes.

Evolution is in crisis! I have been persuaded scientifically for 30 years that evolution does not fit true science, it does not provide evidence based solutions, it is a theory that is bunk, out-dated, one to fit Victorian ideals. It may have been a theory that supported extravagant Victorian living, one which aids the suppression of the conscience's of sinful people, but it does not provide good scientific explanations.

I continue to maintain the truth of the Bible regarding the origin of all things, but academics and others who may not be Christian, also by the simple force of logic are coming to similar conclusions: Evolution is a theory that is out-dated and it is one that is in crisis.
