I was waiting in the doctor's surgery yesterday and I picked up a copy of the German magazine "Focus", which had on the front cover a picture of
Charles Darwin, and how he can help me with the answers to my life. With no other reading material available and time on my hands I decided to
It seems to be quite widely accepted that what used to be called a THEORY, has now more or less gained the status of fact or science. Today more and
more people assert that Darwin's Theory of Evolution, is an irrefutable scientific fact. I don't know what they teach in school nowadays, but
judging from what I can see in the mainstream TV and Media, anyone who does not BELIEVE the THEORY is branded an IDIOT or Unenlightened. At least when
I was at school we were taught that it was a theory, and as such there are just as many questions that the theory opens as it tries to close. The
problem with School and Society is that it demands a high degree of conformity, the masses are spoon-fed "knowledge", which if you look at the
differences between what was taught in the West during the 1980's and what was taught in the Soviet Union, you'll see the big gap in what is
considered "knowledge". This spoon-feeding, coupled together with a parrot like learning and repeating back to the system through the form of exams,
demands conformity to the establishment's view of what is correct, killing in children early the ability to "think outside of the box" or come up
with their own ideas. In the past, what is today labelled as CREATIONISM was taught, without question in most countries with a Christian background.
Today, this is more and more ridiculed, and the people who ridicule it count themselves clever, logical and knowledgeable, that they have the
scientific truth. The Bible, as ever, has a few good words to say:
"Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools",
"Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish
heart was darkened."
"Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men."
"But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things
which are mighty;"
"For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness."
Somewhere along the line, I have the feeling that the socialisation process failed on me, I have a feeling that I must have been off sick from school
that day, when the brainwashers came around to make the Stepford conversions and equip people for a care-free and well integrated life in society. Or
does everyone feel like that ?
Anyway, here are a few objections I have with the Theory of Evolution, and maybe these questions are answered in some way by the Theory, but I must
confess that apart from at school, now 20 years ago, and from mainstream media I have never read the book origin of the species, but anyway, the
question that I think cannot be answered by human methods to be 100% certain fact are the following:
1) Darwin says that in the beginning there was a "filament of life" - surely the most important question to answer in "Origin of Species" is where
does life come from ? It's a major cop out to start by saying in the beginning was life ! It should be explained as a 100% fact where that life came
2) What came first - the chicken or the egg ? This is an age-old question that we used to have fun with as kids, but just think about it how does all
of the intricacies evolve ? How do you evolve male and female. There must have been at one point a new species - for example the first man evolving
from monkeys, how did that first man then reproduce ? There is no cross-species fertilisation, dogs cannot mate with cats, and produce dog-cats etc.
Also if you look at people who have gene defects, you will see that in many cases their offspring do not inherit the defects. It is a bit easy for
Darwin to say that over millions of years - everything just evolved - how ? where is the proof ? why do we not see this happening today ? why do we
not have the mythical creatures like bird-men, or mermaids, or Minotaur (horse-man) - surely there are survival advantages to being a Minotaur.
3) If Darwin were alive today he would probably come to my house and say that all of my electrical appliances have the same ancestor. That over a
period of millions of years the plug has evolved and stretched out and grown into toasters, and vacuum cleaners, and TV sets and Computers. If he saw
the cars on the street he may well conclude, that in the beginning was the BMW 3 Series, which then evolved into the 5 series, then the 7 Series and
so on, there would be quite a few convincing pieces of evidence such as they all have four wheels, an engine, steering wheel etc. Just imagine how
excited he would be if he saw a stretch-limousine version of a BMW. The BMW 4x4 Jeep could almost count as a bridge between species. It sounds absurd
to deny the involvement of a designer or creator of man-made products, but I think it is equally absurd to deny the creation of God.
4) If you killed all of the Bees on the planet - life would cease to exist within 5 years. Our world is a carefully balanced eco-system where
everything is inter-dependent and inter-connected, remove one small thing and the whole thing collapses, it is asking a huge amount of beleif of
people to believe that all of the beauty and intricacy of the whole of creation, came by random events and by chaos.
5) How do Believers of Darwin explain how exactly did Bees and Flowers evolve - how could the one evolve or exist without the other.
6) Where did the trees and plants come from ? Where did the actual earth of the ground come from with all of the minerals and nutrients.
7) What is the point of life according to this theory ? Why does life exist ? What is it's purpose ? Why bother ? After all the human body is as God
says taken from the ground, in that all of our nutrients come from there and when we die we return there ? Seriously, this is a fundamental
8) Why has no-one been able to take a pile of earth out of their garden and create a new life form. No-one understands how any of it works really do
9) Where are the living proofs of evolution ? Why are monkeys still alive and doing well, but none of the other hypothesised transitional forms.
10) People discredit the Bible because of the BELIEVED age of the Earth. No machine can 100% confirm the age of this planet or the age of the
Universe. No-one is alive today who can testify of it, and there is no 100% solid evidence. It is impossible to check the machines data of carbon
dating etc. and even this is based on yet more BELEIFS and THEORIES - For example in trying to calculate the age of the Earth - everyone assumes that
time is constant, linear and stable - here's a thought for you - who can prove that time has always progressed in this way. Just as we have a
fast-forward button on our DVD players, why wouldn't God fast-forward through some parts of creation. The Bible says that God made everything in six
days, but he could have done it in a blink of an eye, the six days is actually also a message for us about the whole timetable of our world. God is
outside of space and time, and our tiny minds can't beging to imagine him, what is so hard to believe about God making everything, at least for me it
is more logical.
11) The confusion between science and fact - nothing in science can really be counted as a fact, as everything is based on empirical observation,
experimentation, recording and testing, even the most widely witnessed and documented phenomena that are widely accepted as truth are always subject
to change depending upon the discovery of a fact against their claim to knowledge. For example, we could believe that all Swans are white, however, on
the day you see your first black Swan, your facts are dead. The truth is that everything which is man-made is based of Beleif upon Belief upon Belief
- we believe that the Sun will rise tomorrow, that we will get paid at the end of the month, that the paper in my wallet is worth something, that the
Bus Driver knows what he's doing, that our Priests know something about the Bible, etc etc None of it is fact - just expectation that because certain
things reacted in one way the last time they were observed that the next time they will repeat the performance.
12) Fossils and Dinosaurs - Only widely discovered since the mid 1800's or at least that seems to be when most attention was paid to the fossils.
They do not prove anything in themselves, nor are they contrary to the Bible - in fact well before any discoveries of dinosaurs God has described them
in the Bible:
(Job 40) 15 Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox. 16 Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the
navel of his belly. 17 He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. 18 His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his
bones are like bars of iron. 19 He is the chief of the ways of God: he that made him can make his sword to approach unto him. 20 Surely the mountains
bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play. 21 He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens. 22 The shady
trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about. 23 Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he
can draw up Jordan into his mouth. 24 He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.
Of course the word behemoth is not dinosaur, which is quite understanding as dinosaur is a modern invention, but from the description of the animal
with a tail like a cedar tree, I can't think of any other animal alive today which fits that description - can you ?
I hope that's a few thoughts to the ball rolling............
