Two ideas competing for the truth

A  Laboratory of Evolution or a Wonder of God’s Creation?

Recently, we ordered a CD called mysterious islands.  The CD is laid out partly in story and partly a documentary where a Christian Naturalist sets out with his son and a few camera men to dispute many of Darwin’s theories. Darwin kept a journal written from his own journey to the Galapagos islands, later he would publish his writings in  his book Origin of the Species.

The documentary does a great comparative analysis of Darwin’s theories vs. the Creation Account found in the Book of Genesis.  What was truly revealing in the documentary was the impact Darwin’s theories would have on his followers and their generation. If you care to understand the two different views on the Origins of Species, the documentary is worth the 90 minutes.

Darwin is generally credited with the theory of evolution by natural selection. Natural selection is the strongest survive and propagate and therefore increase the strength of the species. In the 1800’s the Galapagos Islands offered Darwin a Laboratory of Evolution which would eventually find its way through his published works to compete with the Biblical Creation account found in Genesis.

While on his journey to the Galapagos Islands lasting five years, Darwin would cast aside God and the creation account found in the Holy Bible before arriving. Through a paradigm of rejecting God and the biblical creation account, Darwin would seek answers through the lens of his own understanding to form his opinions. Why would a pure Naturalist do away with a historical account? After all, when you read the creation account written in the first chapter of Genesis it goes into specific detail of how our world and everything living was created by God and how it would procreate, reproduce, regenerate sustain and renew.

Through the lens of his own understanding, Darwin concluded that each kind would somehow transform into another kind; a superior species. Hence the term survival of the fittest would stimulate a competitiveness in man to dominate man.

Within Darwin’s findings, while on the Galapagos islands, he determined his theory on survival of the fittest.  The strong would adapt and transform and do away with the weak. Creationist (creation found in scripture) believe species reproduced each after their own kind. Also, within the species DNA, found they could adapt to their environment, but not the ability to transform into another species.  Today there is conclusive evidence; scientifically and mathematically by Naturalist who agree that species have the potential to adapt but see no evidence for transformation to another species.

Mathematically, all living things evolving from one primordial seed though a climatic event, billions of years ago. It should be noted, by all formulas and  standards the possibility of such an event taking place comes to zero.

As a result of Darwin’s theories on the origin of species, many advocates and followers would introduce the idea of eugenics; the study  or belief in the possibility of improving the qualities of the human species or a human population. Such means would include  discouraging reproduction by persons having genetic defects. Eugenics could include inheritable undesirable traits (negative eugenics) or encouraging reproduction by persons presumed to have inheritable desirable traits (positive eugenics).

Out of Darwin’s findings and conclusions, his  followers would proactively foster the idea of the primordial seed and the origin of species. Discouraging and encouraging traits spawned the era of the holocaust, birth control, abortion, from a group of people with a disbelief in God recognized as Agnostics. Agnostics like Darwin rejected God and relied solely on their own understanding

Unfortunately, Darwin’s rejection of the creation account has aided and fostered a generation of unbelievers. Yet, the basis for his findings requires you to take a tremendous leap of faith when you understand the science and the probabilities behind his theories.  Some would say more faith is required to believe the world was framed by intelligent design.  Scripture tells us that God created all things in the Old Testament and New Testament.  That’s right, the same book on your shelf covered in dust  says in  Genesis 1.1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Acts 17.24 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands.

Why would any true Naturalist ignore such an account recorded with such detail; how the heavens and the earth were formed?

Many believed Darwin could never accept the Biblical account of God and Creation simply ,because in doing so, Darwin would have to accept his father and family members would be in hell, as self- proclaimed unbelievers of God and Christ

As it turns out, the ship Captain navigating Darwin on his journey to the Galapagos islands became a Christian. When the Captain learned of Darwin’s book on the origin of species, later commented on his regret to have ever brought Darwin to the islands.

Man’s reasoning apart from his creator finds himself at odds.  Here is an interesting contrast of the two ideas competing for the truth: God being the strongest of us (our creator), chose to visit earth through his son Jesus Christ and sacrifice himself on the cross and die for our sins, that we his creation (the weaker) might live. The stronger would die for the weaker, so the weaker might live.  How different in comparison with man in Darwin’s theory, the survival of the fittest the stronger dominating the weaker. Hallelujah! Glory to God for the depth of his love and his multifaceted wisdom found in Christ Jesus. Can it be said enough? God’s ways are higher than ours.

Here is a truth that no Evolutionist or Agnostic would want you to know; They have no reasonable or logical response for the order and design we see in our universe. Their answer is a Big Bang theory, a climatic event billions of years ago. The order and design we see in our universe directly points to the very idea there is a Master designer. The truth as law is an enigma wrapped up in a conundrum, so simple, yet beyond our human reasoning when we reject God. The laws of the universe themselves declare: there is no order or design without a Master Intelligent Designer and Architect.  However, this master designer has left to civilization whether to believe or not believe in Him.
