Darwin’s theory on natural selection — that mankind evolved from lower animals, all the way back to the one-celled ameba through mere random mutations (chance) into the trillions-celled human — is absurd on the face of it. All animals, even microscopic ones, are too complex for accidental creation.
No, instead, there is a life force that organizes it (and heals it), and the Force comes from the Holy Spirit — Who engineered Creation (very possibly in steps, or “evolution,” which means unfolding; the key issue is how the unfolding took place). Before He came to earth, Christ, at the right Hand of the Father, witnessed it.
Contemplate the human eye alone. All the interactions of sight — the cornea working with the iris working with the vitreous humor, the retina, the sclera, the optic nerve, and so forth, even the important tear ducts: are they the product of luck?
The eye alone puts Darwinism to the lie. And of course it’s just one aspect of human (and animal) physiology.
How can anyone believe that the human liver, which carries out about five hundred essential tasks, is the fruit of happenstance?
Was it dumb luck that caused sweat glands to cool off humans and thousands of enzymes that all must work together in perfect harmony for the human to function?
And what about how the skin heals over a wound or how new nerves and blood vessels grow when they need to grow? Who tells them to? And the immune system: how could luck fashion its ability to specifically fend off hundreds of viral or bacterial threats?
The list is endless, in humans and animals. So are the simple non-technical questions of common sense. Why would mere luck create beauty, and facial symmetry? How is it that chance genetic mutations would place every feather in perfect congruence of tufts on a bird? Can anyone argue Darwinism with a straight face when there are fish in the deep dark ocean with what amount to flashlights on their heads to lure prey? What quirk of genes would cause a lamp to grow? Can you believe how a chameleon or an octopus or a rattlesnake or a snow owl can camouflage themselves?
Look at any animal and one can only wonder that so many scientists and educators bought into this lie. Only the Trinity could have designed life on earth — plant, animal, even bacteria.
For some time now, noted a blog post, it has been known that our life-friendly cosmos depends on the exquisitely delicate balancing act of what they call universal constants. Let’s not get too technical here, but to mention that among those constants are: the mass and charge of electrons, the strength of nuclear forces, and Newton’s gravitational constant, to name a few. If the value of any of these were just slightly different, intelligence and biological life itself could never come about.
Another “coincidence.” Let the new year bring a new appreciation for God. (How about toasts to Him?)
The famous mathematician/astronomer Sir Fred Hoyle admitted that his atheism was shaken by research into the carbon atom (the building block of life).
After realizing that the energy levels of carbon are precisely those required for carbon-based life, Hoyle remarked that “a common-sense interpretation of the facts suggests a superintellect has monkeyed with the physics.”
Perhaps it’s time to redefine intelligence as just that: common sense (in the place of IQ and SAT scores).
