Why I’m Not An Evolutionist
Is it "in the beginning God" . . . or . . . Evolution's out of nothing came everything and everybody? . . . Darwinism imagines how life forms developed over time. This is quite differ ent from explaining how matter began. For example, the Big Bang theory presupposes the existence of matter for it to work. Who created that pre-existing matter? Without pre-existing matter the Big Bang has no ingredients to work with.
Matter cannot be both cause and effect. Ford cars do not create themselves. They require something else to make them. Evolution is a fable agreed upon. It would rob me of my heavenly Father and all His blessings, my soul's eternal home, my forgiveness for sin, peace and joy, abundant life now, Christian fellowship and my wonderful, personal relationship with Jesus. I dare not succumb to sophistic intellectualism's charms. I will not swap God's riches for man's fads and fairy tales. Dead leaves must fall. I've escaped magic's grip. Find truth, super sleuth.
If one rejects the Judeo-Christian world view it becomes far more difficult to explain life around us. For example. atheistic evolution has no viable answer for origin. A belief system that can only posit that 'out of nothing, comes everything and everybody' is unproven by science. It takes much faith to believe that theory. It cannot be shown to be true.
Further, as the naturalist is bound to a time, space and material world he has no logical access to the non-material world. His chosen realm consists of time, space and matter ( dirt, rocks, mud) . This raw nature world is what I call a dead dirt world. Where is the rock quarry where physics equations were discovered? How do math formulas arise from mud? How does consciousness arise from unconsciousness? Show us how logic arose from dirt? "What can one bound in a material world understand of a non-material world?"- Christopher White. The naturalist must smuggle these non-material elements in from outside his material world. --Stealing From God.
Science is one slice of reality's pie but it cannot answer all questions including: (1) Why are you here? (2) Why evil and injustice matter in a Darwinian, "survival of the fittest" world? (3) Does your life have meaning beyond fleeting pleasures? Lions don't think about these things? (4) What happens when you die? Do spiritually minded people think about these issues?
