EVOLUTION REQUIRES FAITH

EVOLUTION REQUIRES FAITH

Science has proven that it takes a leap of faith to believe in evolution.  How do we know this?  By applying the laws of nature to test the theory.  What is a law of nature? It’s not a material thing, but rather an observable, unbreakable, infinitely repeating pattern.

It’s assumed that in the beginning, nothing created matter. This violates the first law of thermodynamics, a principal scientific law which states that matter and energy cannot be created or destroyed.   After this, the story goes, the matter somehow made itself expand. So it came from nothing and it made itself, expand in spite of the scientific law of motion, a.k.a. inertia.* We live in a cause and effect universe, which means everything that that has a beginning has a cause, right?.  So what has set these events in motion? We’re told it was the events of the Big Bang.  So then how did this happen, and why? Usually, the answer is….chance.  Yes, chance. But chance cannot cause an event to happen.  Think about it.  Chance refers to mathematical probabilities or odds.  As a non-material conceptual entity, it cannot make anything actually occur.  So it’s believed that nothing created the universe.

And sometime later, after nothing created the universe, Evolution teaches that non-living chemicals created a living organism.  This violates the scientific law of biogenesis, which states that life can only come from life.  And despite this hurdle, it is believed that the first living organism also had DNA, an elegant and complex information storage system.  This violates the first, second, and third scientific laws of information.**  Information is a non-material entity.  Matter can’t create non-material entities.  So from where did this information originate?  Additionally, DNA needs an intricate molecular machine known as a ribosome to encode it. But the instructions to build ribosomes are on the DNA.  So what came first-the DNA or the ribosome?  This is way beyond the chicken and the egg. But regardless of all that, it’s thought that natural selection made single celled organisms more complex.  Unfortunately for evolution, the only observable evidence has shown that the only thing natural selection can can do is select from existing information.  Talk about a blind faith.

Again, science has proven that it takes a leap of faith to believe in evolution.  Any credible scientist should know that the past cannot be directly tested, and any good scientist should be willing to question all theories, including the theory of Evolution.  Not only does Biblical Creation fit the facts, today’s “big evolutionary story” goes against the laws of science, such as the first law of thermodynamics, the law of causality, the law of biogenesis, and the laws of information.  But Creation is perfectly consistent with such laws, and allows for a logical conclusion that scientific materialism simply will not allow, even when there’s absolutely no other explanation.  What is this conclusion?  It’s that supernatural intervention by the Creator God did in fact happen.  Yes, miracles.  But that’s also a matter of faith, isn’t it?

 

*An object at rest stays at rest, and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction, unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

**1. A material entity cannot generate a non-material entity.  2.  Information is a non-material entity.  3.  Information can only originate from intelligence.

Sufficient conditions for a non-material entity:  1.  Then entity has no physical or chemical interaction with matter.  2. The entity is not a property of matter.  3.  The entity does not originate in pure matter.  4.  The entity is not correlated with matter.
