Science and the Bible
Upon approaching people to discuss the fact that God loves them and has provided a way for them to be able to enter into Heaven when they die, I have at times been met with a statement like, "Oh, I don't believe the Bible, I'm more into science." What surprises me most about this statement is that it is usually a young person who will respond in this way.
I am absolutely amazed when I hear people say things like this, because of the many statements of fact that we can find which are similar to the few that follow.
“I am quite conscious that my speculations run quite beyond
the bounds of true science.”
In The Origin of Species Darwin wrote:“To suppose that the eye… could have been
formed by natural selection, seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest
Wolfgang Smith, PhD:
“On the fundamental level it becomes a rigorously
demonstrable fact that there are no transitional types, and the so-called missing
links are indeed non-existent.”
“…the fact remains that there exists to this day not a shred
of bona fide scientific evidence in support of the thesis that
macro-evolutionary transformations have ever occurred.”
[Evolutionist] Richard Dawkins:
He was asked on TV, “Can you
think of one example of a mutation that has caused an increase in genetic
complexity? Evolution would require
billions of them. Can you name one
please?” He was dead-silent for 19
seconds. Finally he said, “Shut off the
Dr. David Plaisted’s website[www.cs.unc.edu/~plaisted/ce]:
According to Dr. Plaisted, “Dr. Colin Patterson, a paleontologist, realized that amino
acid sequences in near relatives on the phylogenic tree would be expected to
show close correlation, according to evolutionary theory… To Patterson, this was a great opportunity to
test the theory. The results:absolutely no correlation between similarity
of sequences and nearness on the evolutionary tree. Patterson, in a speech given Nov. 5, 1981,
before other evolutionists, pointed out to a stunned audience that the new data
on amino acid sequences contradicts the theory of evolution. He said, ‘The theory makes a prediction; we’ve
tested it, and the prediction is falsified precisely.'"
Quantitative genetic information from the Human Genome
Project is proving the theory of evolution to be the most irrational belief
ever held by mankind.
Individual species had to be assembled separately in the
genetic code by an intelligent being whose electrical and chemical engineering
technology is vastly superior to ours.
The only word for such intelligence is GOD.
There are many steps between animal types, leading all the
way up to man himself, for which missing links have never been found. At
this point, in order to believe in evolution, without the existence of any
transitional types, one would be required to take many incredible leaps of faith. This, to
me, seems to more closely resemble religion than science.
On the other hand, if I believe the Bible, I can go to
Genesis 1:1 and read, "In the
beginning God created the heaven and the earth." Now I
am left with just one step of faith. All I have to do is believe
God. In the Bible description of Special Creation by God there is no need
to search for transitional forms because God created all of the animal types as
they exist today.
