An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Evolution Rears It’s Ugly Feet

(Proverbs 3:20 KJV)  By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.

I do not accept the theory of evolution.  I have a number of reasons.

It substitutes random chance for God.  This is the basic problem

It is a theory, not a fact.  Scientific fact requires three things:  Measurable, observable, repeatable.  Evolution meets none of these.  Of course, neither does creation, but who claimed it did?

It does not line up with the evidence.  You have heard of the “missing link?”  Understand, all the links are missing.  And honest evolutionists will acknowledge that even if they find them there is not enough time for it to have worked.

Having said that, the first part of this verse indicates, that with the proper framing of the argument, that God could have done things in stages and those stages could look like an evolutionary process. 

So?  Don’t reject science because it is science.  Reject those parts of it that are based on a flawed religious faith and reject the order and dependability that God built into our world.  Evaluate it in comparison to what the word does say and what the evidence actually shows.  Don’t be afraid of truth and facts, fear theory parading as fact.

I wouldn't have expected this proverb to evoke these thoughts, but am glad you visited them.

Evolution is silly to me, driven by a religious passion to dethrone God and toss him out of human consideration. You're right to point out its most glaring flaw--it doesn't hold up to the evidence or seem particularly dependent upon it to maintain its existence.

It has no viable way to get from soup to living stuff, so it is sunk from the beginning. If it can't come up with an explanation for that, its take on the fossil record is superfluous.

Real science and the scientific method are rooted in the concept of an unchangeable eternal God who created an orderly universe. Much modern science is just rationalization to be excepted by the elites.

We have nothing to fear from real science, it is just investigating the world God created.

Thanks for the input.

Grace and peace.
