Is evolution fact or fiction? Read and see

Anyone who is interested in the facts about the “theory” of evolution should read “Darwin on Trial” by Phillip E. Johnson.

Evolution will never be proven as fact because there is no empirical evidence to support it. Colin Patterson, a senior paleontologist at the British Natural History Museum and author of that museum’s general text on evolution, came to the University of Chicago for a series of seminars. He was having doubts about teaching evolution as a fact.

He asked a panel of experts on evolution consisting of geologists and professors to answer a question. Could they name one thing about evolution that was true? There was total silence until one scientist replied, “I do know one thing — it ought not be taught in high school.”

A study of world history reveals that many of the world’s greatest thinkers have believed in God or that Divine Intelligence brought the universe into existence. Men with superior intellect believed there were rational laws governing the universe. One scientist wrote that “the laws governing the universe seem to be written in the language of mathematics.”

The foundations of modern science were laid by men who believed “human reason was derived from Divine Intelligence so that the rationality of the universe is mirrored in the rationality of human minds.”

“An unbiased look at the history of science shows that modern science is an invention of medieval Christianity and the greatest breakthroughs in scientific reason have largely been the work of Christianity,” said another historian.

Most modern inventions are based on research conducted by men who believed in God. Einstein recognized that the universe did not come into existence by chance. He wrote, “All I have tried to do in my life is ask a few questions. Could God have created the universe any other way or had He no choice?”

Anyone who believes America would be a better nation if everyone were to believe the theory of evolution or the fabrication of the science channel or science periodicals should look at world history. The regimes of atheistic leaders like Lenin, Stalin, Pol Pot and Hitler were responsible for the slaughter of millions of innocent lives. Evolution teaches man is an animal. The Bible teaches man can become a child of God.
