When discussing evidence for ‘molecules to man’ evolution with someone with a scientific background, it is common to experience the ‘back off, I’m a scientist’ response when asking scrutinizing questions. True science is supposed to be an exercise of the observable, repeatable and testable which clearly cannot apply to origins as assumptions ALWAYS have to be made when looking into the past. It is amazing how often scientists depart from science and stray into the discipline of history when promoting theories and then present them as proven facts.
Additionally, the ‘life’ sciences appear to claim special privilege when it comes to the need for evidence. This article, written by electrical engineer Perry Marshall, outlines 7 biology myths that would not be tolerated in other scientific fields. This is an intriguing read and demonstrates that conclusions which are promoted as facts are often more far-fetched than those to believe in the special creation of life. We always find it interesting to observe comments made by atheists in response to articles like this – the vast majority will try to discredit the writer as opposed to deal with actual content on the article. Very often, the more a writer is mocked and ridiculed, the less likely it is that opponents can fault the actual argument made.
The battle for our minds is very fierce and the mainstream scientific establishment is often promoted as the bastion of the rational and logical – in the western world where the mere mention of a faith in God is increasingly met with ridicule and outrage, it is vital to recognise and be encouraged by the fact that a belief in ‘molecules to man’ evolution is a huge exercise of faith in itself and one that often flies in the face of the clear evidence.
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)
