Apologetics 102: Icons of Evolution
“Don't let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ” Colossians 2:8
What evidence/facts do evolutionist have that ID proponents and biblical creationist are not privy to? Think about this question.
We have the same earth, universe, stars, fossils, and even the science when it comes to observational repeatable and technological. So what is the big deal? Why is one interpretation more valid? It is not.
The evolution model AND the Creation model BOTH rely on the interpretations of historical evidence, not direct empirical evidence. All data must first be interpreted and the way the data is interpreted is based on the interpreters’ worldview. Evolutionists try to squirm out o this fact, but they cannot. Molecule to man evolution is as observable as the creation event. Both sides first assume their interpretation/worldview true.
In this series, we will go the many icons of evolution. After viewing this, you will probably ask yourself, “If evolution is so true why hold to these refuted and debunked icons?”
The short answer is, that’s all they got, and they are used to falsely convince the youth that evolution is true and is real science.”
The long answer is evolution is the only naturalistic explanation for origins.
“Even though evolution is not entirely naturalistic, in that it cannot explain first causes. Naturalist/materialists must assume that in the beginning, all matter and energy were unorganized because initial organization requires a creative intelligence or designer, which materialistic science has rejected a priori. Moreover, while assuming a creative intelligence or designer is a valid assumption, it is no longer purely naturalistic, and therefore, eliminated. Therefore, what other naturalistic model explains the current complexity and similarity of life, arrived at by natural processes (natural selection and random mutations), starting with chaos? None other than common descent, i.e. molecule to man evolution. So materialistic scientists have no other valid, naturalistic explanation, so evolution wins by default.
Moreover, with many evolution scientists that has an entire lifetime of work and ego invested in the evolution model. They are unwilling to consider that evolution is untrue because they cannot fathom that their efforts may have been wasted. To quote Darwin himself, “Often, a cold shudder has run through me, and I have asked myself whether I may have devoted myself to a fantasy (postulating the theory of evolution).”
But ultimately it's about rebellion against the Creator Jesus Christ and suppressing the truth in unrighteous, but like the apostle Paul says in Romans “they are without excuse”
"The greatest insult to nature is that random mutations and a non-creative 'force' like natural selection are credited with being responsible for all of it."
