Moderator: You might want to keep the following scripture from Romans 1 in mind as you read this article: “18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. 24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever.”

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you,with meekness and fear. ( 1 Peter 3:15) We’re suppose to know why we believe what we believe. Nobody has all the answers but too many Christians fear topics they should embrace. Chief among these are the sciences, particularly macro evolution, or Darwinian evolution. There is no question micro evolution is a scientific fact. Contrary to the naturalist claims, micro demonstrates the limits of evolution rather than the infinite “magic” of unguided natural selection that is macro evolution. Micro evolution is changes within species; two different dogs breed you get a third type of dog, you don’t get a goat or a chicken, you get a dog 100,000,000 times out of 100,000,000. Macro evolution claims every species evolved from a single cell that somehow (they have no clue how by the way) arose from a lifeless primordial ooze. Science has spent literally trillions of dollars to study and manipulate lab conditions to show how life “randomly” came from non life. They can’t. We are going to be most gracious indeed (as you may know or will discover, courtesy is rarely returned in kind by naturalist) and ignore this. We will also pay little attention to the truly fanciful “branches of life”. One miracle cell evolves to two and so on and so on. Some turn into insects some to birds, some reptiles etc. etc. etc. viola!! man. Why does this one branch here and that one there and why is there no evidence of this in history? Again, no answers.
You see, Darwinist claim their theory (it is and always has been an unproven theory) is a bottom up theory. In fact, it’s top down. They can’t even come close to figuring out the beginning. We are here with wondrous and balanced diversity so we must have evolved to get to that. It would be comical if it wasn’t so accepted. Why is it this way? Let’s begin the explanation by giving ole Charley Darwin a break. In his day cells were thought to be pretty simple blobs of protoplasm. In the last 50 years or so our knowledge of cellular complexity has exploded. Living organisms are by far the most complex things on the planet. All inventions in human history can’t begin to compare complexity wise with the inventors. As we will see, Darwinist claim that animals are brilliant creators too. But only randomly……sure, and I’ve got some plumb swamp land in the Keys.
But how can a simple minded guy like me be right and so many brilliant scientist be wrong? Good question. I only ask that you use your own mind to look at facts objectively. Here’s why I don’t think science does this. It all comes down to pride, money and tradition. Darwin’s theory made much more sense before increases in knowledge. True, Darwin thought the knowledge explosion would prove advantageous, it hasn’t been but this only fuels the “science club” and their protective instincts (pun intended). Darwinism explains away the need for God. The ultimate evolutionary achievement needs no creator.  Profs have taught profs who have taught profs who have taught profs etc etc etc for about 150 years, all taking Darwinism as fact. Our entire academic foundation, from colleges to kindergarten, is built on accepting Darwinism as truth. Papers, salaries, awards, prestige, grants, grants grants…………did I mention grants? All spring from the Darwinian well.
It is a fact that more scientists than ever are disputing Darwinism. The number has and will continue to rise. But it’s a tough road. Tenured profs have been fired for even questioning macro evolution. Evidence, acknowledged as fact is brushed aside because it points to a creator. Can complex computer programs using 4 digit code arise by chance. Can animals think their genes into mutating? If macro evolution is such a slow process, so slow  that we have no observed evidence of it in our entire history, and we came from the sea…How did any animal slowly evolve from breathing water to breathing air? Can you even imagine the thinking, random, let’s not forget that, an animal has to do to manipulate a body plan from getting oxygen from water to getting oxygen from air? What would happen during the process? Death, that’s what. There are literally thousands of examples of impossible evolution stories. Let’s look at just one.
Mr. octopus. That ink spraying, camouflage, masquerader, an evolutionary miracle for sure! I was watching a nature show on this amazing creature hosted by Captain Picard. (Shatner must have had a price line gig). He gushed about the ingenious methods of survival our eight tentacled wonder had (over millions of years mind you) developed. Ingenious? No doubt whatsoever. Evolved? Let’s examine. Take the day octopus. So named because it is not nocturnal as most are. This marvel of nature can change its’ skin color AND texture instantaneously to match surroundings. It does this by muscularly manipulating cells to show one of three colors, that’s three each in every cell. The texture change comes from causing skin protrusions. Oh yea, it can also shoot black “ink” (which can also be used for a tasty sauce when cooking him) to facilitate open ocean escapes. The camouflage is most effective in coral or rocky areas. Here’s a fraction of our knowledge, there is so much we don’t know. There are 150,000 cells per square inch on the octopus’ skin.. We’re talking millions total. The animals brain somehow programs its’ body to manipulate these as it sees its’ surroundings change. At the same time the skin protrudes to match texture. Attempts to explain are feeble. Scientists admit as much. This is such a foreign ability that we probably will never come close to understanding it. Several other wonderfully different animals use camouflage in various ways.
Seems impossible, doesn’t it? Maybe not. Time to cut em another break.Let’s say Mr. octopus did evolve his amazing, head scratching complex survival techniques. How? Remember, macro evolution takes lots, lots, lots of time. Also know that Mr. octopus, even with all his tools, often becomes dinner for Mr. shark, barracuda or others, even man. If he still loses the predation battle fully armed, how did he get fully armed? The ocean is not forgiving. There isn’t a training, evolution friendly, no predation zone. Have your defenses in order (and your predation skills for that matter) or die. Do you really think the harsh environment will allow an animal to “figure out” how to operate millions of brain functions at once? There is another type of octopus that was only discovered ten years ago. It’s called the mimic octopus. Scientists have no ideal if its’ recent discovery is because it’s new. The more likely explanation is because it is so skilled at mimicry, they just never new they were seeing an octopus. This kind of amazing story is the norm. All creatures, large and small, have incredible body plans. Specialization is so common it somehow seems un spectacular. But it is spectacular. Spectacular and wondrous. Does it make sense to believe the majesty and diverse yet balanced complexity that is life happened in a completely undirected process? Naturalist say folks claim creation simply to justify faith in a supreme being. Guess what? It takes way more faith to believe that what we are and where we are occurred randomly, by complete chance than to believe in a creator.
I was agnostic most of my life. Science convinced me of a creator. The Bible convinced me of Christianity. I spent most of my life mocking the religious for believing in fairy tales. I enjoyed convincing Christians they had no real basis for faith. It took me thirty years and more conversations than I can count before I finally encountered one who could defend his beliefs. Looking back, I’m sure I was an overconfident jackass at times. At least I had the ability to realize truth when I heard it. Not everyone will. If this is a topic you have opportunities to discuss you will run in to hateful folks who will have nothing but venom (how bout venom btw, how did that evolve) to spew. They don’t have a case. Some will see this, I did. Those who don’t will resort to name calling. Remember, we have a rule book, they don’t. I’m not saying back down or be meek.. Be calm and confident. If you’re hatefully and venomously attacked, be proud. That just means you’re doing something right.
