I know what I am doing here by bringing up arguments against theistic evolution.
I am opening a can of worms.
I will anger the liberals because I don’t buy into their false religion of macro evolution. Lack of a fossil record be damned, it must be true, because otherwise there might be a Creator ready to condemn them when they die.
And I will anger the theistic evolution believers, as well. So be it, I guess. I must go where reason and faith take me. They are sure guides.
For those keeping score at home, let me add this real quick. If you are unsure what I mean by theistic evolution, I am talking about the belief by (what seems to be, at least) a majority of Catholics.
They hold that how mankind and all living creatures came to be here today is through a very long process of macroevolution. God is said to have originated the process and more or less guided it though along the way.
Here are six arguments against theistic evolution. They serve as big reasons why I cannot believe in theistic evolution.
1. Call It For What It Is, An Alternate Explanation for the Origin of Life Devoid of God
Charles Darwin’s explanation for the origin of life serves as a means to push God out of the picture. This serves the Culture of Death, by making man the focal point of existence.
Admitting we are all willed by an all-powerful Creator would mean we have to answer to Him someday. Not wanting that to be true, people have gravitated toward the outrageous claims of Darwin and his evolutionary theory academic disciples.
The goal of macroevolution was to give an alternative explanation for the existence of the universe, devoid of God. That remains why modern atheists still cling to it to this day. Not because it is a sound theory. But because they have nothing better to claim.
The irony is, macroevolution can’t give you the first cell. Every living thing on planet earth supposedly originated from a single cell that evolved over a long period of time. But where did that cell come from?
Sadly, theistic evolution defenders supply it by saying God put it there.
2. The Law of Entropy
The Second Law of Thermodynamics is the Law of Entropy. The law says that things denigrate over time, they do not become more complex.
Yet, the entirely theory of macroevolution rests on bucking a known scientific law of nature. Ironic, is it not?
3. No Fossil Record to Speak of
The theory of macroevolution claims over the course of millions or billions of years, less complex organisms gave birth to more complex organisms. This supposedly occurred over and over. Entire different species of animals came from shared parents. This too occurred over and over, in time.
Yet, archaeologists have found no evidence of this occurring in nature. For all the death and destruction macroevolution claims occurred for all those millions of years, you would think we would find fossils to prove it. But no, we don’t.
4. No Macroevolution Going On Presently Either
If the universe is in such a constant state of flux, why are we not seeing macroevolution before our very eyes?
How come it is not a monthly news report that reptiles gave birth to birds, or mammals hatched from bird eggs?
Human beings, for that matter, haven’t changed either. It’s almost as if we were always this way and will remain the way we are. Hmmm, how about that?
This is not to say I deny microevolution. For, I know microevolution occurs and is evidenced. But in those instances it is in conformity with the Law of Entropy. Dog species are devolving, for instance. We don’t have dogs evolving into more complex animals.
5. Am I Supposed to Believe Adam and Eve’s Parents Were Monkeys?
A friend of mine pointed out to me the absurdity of theistic evolution, when it came to Adam and Eve’s origin.
According to macroevolution believers the first humans would have come from at least one subhuman primate. This means that the first human male and the first human female were gestated inside a subhuman primate.
For the sake of simplicity, let’s name the first human male Adam and the first human female Eve.
Macroevolution would claim that both Adam and Eve were born to, nursed by, and raised by subhuman primates.
Those who believe in macroevolution must believe this, right? If they are honest with themselves, I wonder how many think Adam and Eve really were birthed by a subhuman primate.
6. God Did Not Hold Out on Us
Am I really supposed to believe that God held out the truth from us, His people all that time?
God revealed Himself to us in Scripture. Yet, I am asked to believe the Holy Spirit’s explanation for the origin of life was a lie? Am I supposed to think He forgot to mention macroevolution as the true source of all living creatures?
And besides, how am I to take seriously that God chose the atheists as the ones to whom to reveal the truth of the origin of life? I know God loves everyone, but I do not imagine He waited until 1871 (The Descent of Man was published) to reveal the truth to Darwin, of all people.
Rather, to whom did God reveal the truth about the origin of life? To those who place their faith in Him.
“By faith we understand that universe was ordered by the word of God, so that what is visible came into being through the invisible” (Hebrews 11:3).
WHY I BOTHERED TO WRITE ABOUT THIS
There are two competing worldviews, as I see it.
Sadly, I see the world awash in hopelessness. People have been fed a lie by the hoax of macroevolution that their lives are ultimately meaningless.
This, I see, serves as a partial explanation for the Culture of Death in which we live. Eugenics practices, abortion, contraception, sex slavery, homosexuality, etc. all stem from a philosophical approach to life that says we humans control our own destiny. In this mindset, this lifetime is all you get, so you better make sure you come out on top.
It’s you against me, in the Culture of Death.
Whereas, I know God created each of us, and willed us into existence. We are not the product of some random scientific process. Rather, our lives have meaning and purpose.
We can’t know where we are going, if we don’t know where we came from, the old adage goes. From Him (God) we came and to Him we shall return (Job 1:21).
Okay, lay into me. Call me an idiot.
Or, dare to be bold and let me know if you agree with me.
