Origin Of Species Anniversary Today
For most of the month we have been posting quotes from scientists who are not believers in creation. Today is the last day. Evolution is the great myth of our time. A myth that retards science, but more importantly a myth that turns people away from their creator... away from God. That's the purpose of the myth of evolution. It's to provide an explanation of life without the need for God. But you can't make God go away by ignoring Him or making believe He does not exist.
Reality does not go away just because you declare you don't believe in it. What you believe makes no difference.
"Science positively demands creation." - Lord Kelvin, quoted in H. Enoch, Evolution or Creation, (1988), page 94.
We've been looking at a lot of quotes about science, and how evolution does not even stand up as being scientific. But the answer ultimately is not in science. God has given us the answer. If we turn to God first, and pay attention to what God's word plainly says, we'll avoid the misdirections, false starts and blind alleys that myths like evolution lead science into.
"Evolution is promoted by its practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular religion -- a full-fledged alternative to Christianity, with meaning and morality... That was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution today." - Michael Ruse, "Saving Darwin From The Darwinians," National Post (May 13, 2000)
Thank you for joining me in this "celebration" of the 150th anniversary of the publication of Darwin's "On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life."
