"The Darwinian theory of descent has not a single fact to confirm it in the realm of nature. It is not the result of scientific research, but purely the product of imagination." Albert Fleischmann.
For eons, the idea of Evolution has been embraced by millions if not billions to be scientific fact. The thought has entwined itself in everyday society. Schools teach it, politicians embrace it, Hollywood glorifies it and the highest scientific minds promote it as absolute truth but when and where did Evolution begin?
The abridged thought of Evolution has existed for eons; its roots date back to ancient Greece, Rome, China and the Islamic sciences of medieval times but the idea began to flourish in the 19th century with Jean-Baptiste Lamarck’s theory that organisms acquired their characteristics by the use and disuse of body parts. For example, the original ancestor of the Giraffe had a short neck but generational use of the neck created a longer neck and thus a new species.
The full premise of Evolution is infamously linked to Charles Darwin and his trip to the Galapagos Islands in the South Pacific. While visiting these islands Darwin observed finches eating various seeds. During his observation, he noticed disparities in beak size and assumed the harder seeds in the dry time were causing the beaks of the finches to grow in size and strength thus becoming a new creature. Darwin would later combine his theory with the natural selection thoughts of Alfred Russel Wallace to produce the first fully published work entitled “The Origin of Species.”
From this point, the idea of Species Transitioning exploded as Naturalists, Atheists, Creation Skeptics, Scientists and many others flooded society with data, fossils and charts depicting how all life originated.
This downpour of information continues today as anti-creationists continue to promote the conception of the universe without a creator and they are experts at presenting their case, masters of deflecting facts and changing course to avoid confutation. For these reasons, creationists must be patient but armed with the knowledge and concepts of Science and Evolution; in other words, we must know our stuff!
I found this out the hard way as Evolutionists bombarded me with words and phrases that raised my blood pressure. To combat this assault and settle my nerves, I decided to cast my net out into the deep world of Science and walk into the preverbal lion’s den of Evolutionary thought to answer the following questions.
Can Evolution be Proven Wrong? Is Evolution Fact or Fiction? Was the Universe and all life Designed by a Higher Power?
Do I understand all the mysteries of the Universe? No, and not even modern Science can explain everything. We live in a wonderful world where we see beautiful and exotic things; mountains that nearly touch the sky, blue lakes that are glorious and fearful, mysteries of the deep that expand our wonderment of life.
Where did all of this come from? I am a Creationist, I believe the universe and all of it's substance and mysteries were created by God.
- Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
Naturalists, Evolutionists and Atheists insist the universe exploded into existence billions of years ago and life spawned from a primordial puddle of soup and from there, various creatures, plants, flowers, trees and mankind evolved.
Beyond this, Evolutionists believe the universe is eternal ever expanding new galaxies, planets and life but Creationists believe the universe is not eternal, it is temporary. Evolutionists believe mankind evolved from a primitive ape like ancestor, Creationists believe man was created by God.
There can be only one answer, Are Creationists right or are Evolutionists Right?
In the following articles, I will explore the world of Science, Evolution and Creationism to unlock the mysteries of our universe and beyond. It will be a long journey of wonder and enlightenment.
All questions will not be answered, some things will be easily understood, others will be difficult but at the end of the day, I hope and pray some light is shined upon the darkness that permeates our world. The darkness that says that GOD does not exist, the darkness that says Christianity and Science are contrary to each other, the darkness that says there is nothing beyond this world but what we can see.
