Evolution: Faith — Not Science!
By Thomas Heinze
Because they are complex, many things appear to have been designed and created: cars, refrigerators, the earth and particularly the living things that live on earth. Atheists and many evolutionists recognize the evidence: Living things appear to have been designed. But they don’t believe that they were.
The famous atheist Richard Dawkins, wrote: “Biology is the study of complicated things that give the appearance of having been designed for a purpose.” (Richard Dawkins, The Blind Watchmaker, 1996, p. 1)
Even having admitted the evidence, that living things look like they were designed, he is still an atheist. He claims that natural selection makes things look like they were designed.
Most of us reject this and say these things look like they were designed because they were designed!
Many evolutionists prefer a different explanation of the things around us. Looking back to the beginning, their schoolbooks usually teach that, at the first, “nothing” exploded and made the universe.
Then on earth, atoms blundered into each other and made the first simple living things, bacteria probably. Then these evolved as natural selection chose the best and eliminated the rest.
As a generalization this may sound OK, but try to apply it! Only living things reproduce, and they reproduce after their kind.
People reproduce people, and bacteria reproduce bacteria. Science and the Bible agree: Living things bring forth according to their kind.
Evolution, on the contrary, teaches that living things started with something small like bacteria (which they often call “primitive”), and by random mutations, brought forth ever higher, more complex kinds. At this point the evolutionist has abandoned scientific evidence for a leap of faith!
He believes that bacteria gradually, over millions of years, brought forth fish. Over millions of years the fish brought forth primitive mammals. Then you and I evolved from them.
Evolutionists base this belief on faith alone. It is exactly contrary to the scientific principle of entropy which, among other things, says that random changes to an organized system reduce its organization. Which is right? Check it out with an experiment!
Take a sledge hammer, close your eyes and hit a functioning system with it! Whether you hit a television set, a hog at the slaughter house, or a bacterium, the random changes made by the blow will reduce rather than increase the system’s ability to function.
Such experiments prove the rule: random changes to an organized system reduce its functionality! A scientific word for this rule is “entropy.” Mutations and other random changes don’t increase organization, they reduce it.
This is where evolutionists abandon science for faith. They believe, in spite of all scientific evidence, that random damage caused by mutations made bacteria become fish, and fish become people. They end up propagating an idea exactly contrary to both the scientific principle of entropy and to the evidence.
After examining the evidence that proves this scientific principle, they choose to believe the opposite! Shame on them!
