Evolution as a theory of origins completely humiliates science. It makes a creator god out of mutation and adaptation and so-called “natural selection”. It insists that all of the diversity of life on earth is the result of a designer that must (by the declaration of the US Supreme Court) be taught in public schools as having an IQ of ZERO!
Evolution as a theory of origins or in other words as a “creation story” stands in the face of everything we know about how complex things are brought into being. Whether it be a whicker basket or a space shuttle, and certainly something an order of magnitude more complex and efficient like a living cell, you will always need someone with adequate skills and resources to put it together. A basket requires a certain level of skill and intelligence, a space shuttle was the result of a team of the world’s best engineers with proven intelligence, a living cell cannot come into existence without the required skill and intelligence! No matter how you try to slice and dice mutation and adaptation, without the required intelligence or decision making skills, and resources required, a living reproducing cell (much less a fish, or ant, or human) could not have come into existence!
So, what do I conclude about how this great creation came about? I admit that I don’t have much more than a few sentences about it given to us by the One behind it. I must be carefull not to interpret those passages of scripture or alter them to say what I like. The One that engineered life on earth is One that deserves deep respect for the record He has given us. Is the New Testament the only place where our Creator uses parables? I don’t know! It’s not my place to judge and neither is it yours.
The theory of evolution as a creation story is just a justification for blasphemy and nothing more. It’s an abnomination that a godless generation wants to throw up in the face of the Creator of the universe and us. The Creator that proved His love for us and sustains us at this very moment. The One that deserves our love, confidence and the highest respect. It attempts to take away our Creator’s rights to his creation including us and reducing His reality to just “blind faith, sentiment, tradition, human imagination” or worse.
