Darwinists hope to bury God in an avalanche of a causeless universe and a godless evolution.
However, instead of liberating us, they plunge us into a cosmic depression. We are reduced to: From Nothing, By Nothing, For Nothing - an accidental leftover from the Big Bang, evolved by a lucky chance, and here for no ultimate purpose.
We are just walking molecules, birthed through a cosmic accident, dancing to the music of our DNA, and destined to disappear in a cosmic blink - nothing more, nothing less, nothing else.
And when we look to science and evolution for answers, all we get is a blank look. Life has no real purpose, dude - it is about the survival of the genes in us - feeding, fending, fleeting and fathering - just live through it and get it over with. Our final destination is the hole in the ground.
But is it true?
Perhaps we are: From Someone, By Someone, For Someone. Perhaps there is an unexplored and awesome universe beyond the Darwinian world of survival for nothing.
Science encourages us to think critically and lets us place Darwinism in the crosshairs and examine it in the light of empirical science - is it observable and repeatable? If not, it is not experimental science. And, as we shall see, Darwinism is an unobservable and unreproducible pseudo-science.
This book will walk us through cosmology, biology, philosophy and end with theology, the queen of the sciences. Empirical science buries Darwinism and resurrects Creationism. We are more than cosmic orphans lost in an accidental, uncaring and dying Universe; we are living souls, made in the image of God, and designed to have a wonderful relationship with an awesome Creator.
Yan T Wee, the founding Pastor of Shalom Baptist Church, Singapore, writes from his fascinating research into the latest skirmish between speculative Darwinism and deducible Creationism. He concludes that Darwinism, when viewed in its entirety, is not only disingenuous, but a guaranteed, one-way ticket into the universe of ultimate meaninglessness and despair.
It Takes More Faith to Be an Evolutionist
No God is needed if all life "evolved" from primordial soup over billions of years. Man is just a highly complex mutant that accidentally appeared in a hostile universe.
This takes away all accountability. "Survival of the fittest" becomes the standard of all behavior. No moral law, no 10 Commandments, just wandering chemical organisms trying to figure out why we are here.
Below you will see several key examples from the book, "Darwin's Universe: Survival For Nothing" by author Y. T. Wee, showing how ridiculous evolutionary theory is.
The only reason people profess to believe it is because the only other option is belief in God, which to them is unthinkable.
The Miracle of Water
Ice floats. If it didn’t, you and I wouldn’t be here!
That’s because water is lighter as ice than in liquid form. If this was not so, the lakes and polar oceans would freeze from the bottom up and kill all aquatic creatures vital to life on earth.
Water is almost unique. Nearly every other substance, when it changes from liquid to solid, becomes more dense. But as water cools, it shrinks until it reaches about 39 degrees Fahrenheit, then it expands until it freezes at about 32 degrees —and floats.
Water itself is essential to life. The unbelievably complex cells in our biology are over half water. Up to 60% of the adult human body is water.
The Fine-Tuning of Earth
Another recent discovery of true science is the fine-tuning of planet Earth for the support of life. From the study of the massive cosmos to the discoveries in subatomic particle physics, it has been discovered that hundreds of factors, if only minutely changed, would immediately extinguish all living things.
We call these the “laws of nature.” The law of gravity is one example. Everywhere in the universe, a certain amount of mass will have an exact amount of gravitational pull. Dr. Wee describes this and other laws that are so exact that any slight variation would be fatal to life as we know it.
Where did the laws of nature governing everything physical come from? And more importantly, who defined them? Darwinian evolution cannot account for this. The laws and their preset physical constants are mysteriously “just there” and “just right” —balanced on a razor edge.
In most people’s minds, fossils and evolution go hand in hand. In reality, fossils are a great embarrassment to evolutionary theory and offer strong support for the concept of creation. If evolution were true, we should find millions of fossils that show how one kind of life slowly and gradually changed to another kind of life. Instead, there are no verifiable intermediate fossils showing a clear transition from one species (kind) to another.
If all complex modern life came from a single cell, there should be thousands or millions of fossils demonstrating all the stages of that transition. But what we see is that all species appear fully developed —as described in Genesis— when they show up in the fossil record, often quite suddenly.
Microbiology has discovered that a single cell is more complex than a hundred space shuttles or even the entire city of New York with its road system, power lines and sewage system. These single cells are actually microscopic “factories,” taking the raw materials provided by food and the environment and converting it to the creation and maintenance of life itself.
Above all, they are not just any molecular factories, but mind-boggling, highly complex, self-replicating biological factories that can reproduce identical copies of themselves. This presupposes a Super Designer capable of thinking up that complexity.
So, in one’s final analysis of the origins of life, faith is required. To believe that nothing suddenly exploded into something with no help from anyone, is an act of faith, not scientific observation. When we look closely at the evidence, it appears far easier to believe in a Super Creator who started it all; yet that also is an act of faith.
We appear to have been given a carefully designed freedom of choice between the two. There is no third alternative! Increasingly, trusting the Creator makes more sense.
