The Origins of the Theory of Evolution - Chap 5
What can be learned by considering the origins of the
theory of evolution? Well for one thing we can ask the
“why” and the “who”. Who were these people seeking to establish an alternate explanation for things that did away with the need for God? And what provoked it all?
Their excuses include hypocrisy in the church, sin in the
church, (the crusades, the inquisition, selling indulgences).
Natural disasters, like the Lisbon earthquake of 1755 where an
estimated 60,000 men, women and children died, along with the Black Death plague jumped to their justification. The pain and suffering seen everywhere upon the innocent, is apparently also God’s fault in their minds.
All these excuses played their part in the attempted
justification for the flight from God. The real reason was the
rebellion in the heart of those who saw God not as the loving
heavenly Father, but as a killjoy standing between them
and their prideful natural inclinations. Here is a quote
from the evolution’s founder, Charles Darwin in The Origin of Species:
“I can indeed hardly see how anyone ought to wish
Christianity to be true; for if so the plain language of
the text seems to show that the men that do not believe,
and this would include my father, brother, and all my
best friends, will be everlastingly punished and this is
a damnable doctrine.”
And remember, Darwin could only see a cell with a primitive
scope. A cell has a universe within it including DNA. Darwin did
not know the macro and micro limits that exist in nature.
Do you see the implications? The founders of the theory
of evolution resolutely and purposefully with full resolve and
intent set out to find justification in doing away with God! That is
not what we’ve been carefully taught. The church and the world
believe it was what they learned in their labs and fields of study
that convinced them that evolution and natural selection were
the true cause of all creation. (And they are all neutral, fair and
Darwin’s rejection of God and theory of evolution are not
founded in scientific research, but in his personal rebellion against
God. His decision was made at the very beginning. That is not at
all what we have been led to believe. Consider…
• Where do evolutionists say everything came from?
The Big Bang.
• Where does Evolution say the Big Bang came from? A Point of Singularity.
• Where does Evolution say the Point of Singularity
came from? They don’t say.
• Where does Evolution say the laws of nature come
from? They don’t say.
• Do they say why the laws are dependable? No.
• Do they say why the laws are knowable, discernible
and comprehendible? No.
You are expected to just believe what they say, to trust them.
You know, like taking candy from strangers. Or, shut up and drink
Consider some of what the children face when they side
against the evolution establishment. The schools pretty much
succeed in convincing children that:
To believe in God is unscientific.
And disputes and opposes science.
And, all valid science and scientists affirm evolution.
And all the evidence supports it.
And “your faith is not evidence”.
Our theory is.
Now you will fall in line and accept our authority
Or face the ongoing consequences of:
Being slotted as religious,
and poorly educated,
and hate filled,
And with viewed with disdain.
The weapons to defeat evolution are not technical. They are
easy to understand insights. They confirm experience and are self-evident.
By this we mean that the insight makes sense and follows
the rules of logic, and makes sense to us personally. Why should
you trust strangers?
For example: Both science and common sense declare
“NOTHING comes from nothing.” Evolution offers no explanation
of how it all got started. After all a Big Bang requires a Big Banger
who lights the fuse. The Bible does explain. The explanation is
God started it, which is both rational and plausible. The enemy
replies “where did God come from?”
The answer is in two parts and is not complicated.
First, both reason and experience testify “everything that
begins to exist has a cause.” We know and experience the physical
world, so we know something exists. We know something caused
it. Second, there must be by necessity an “uncaused first cause.”
Call it what you will. I call it God. Unless you are fleeing from
God, this is a reasonable, rational, satisfying and common-sense
The other side doesn’t want a God. After all, he would
have to be personal, because for humans to be
personal and have personality, it would, by necessity
have to issue forth from a “person.” Nothing else would
make sense. So, evolutionists reason, a personal God probably
has a moral code He would expect us to live by it; and to them,
that is NOT good news. This is a liberating insight revealing why
the theory of evolution exists. In fact, flight from God is the only
reason for evolution. This is clear from its origins. This is the
plausible reason why they flee from God.
The argument for evolution is appealing only if the idea
of God is bad news. Apart from that, evolution will not hold
up to even rudimentary questions or examination. For example,
if the idea of God were not so distasteful, one might wonder
what criteria were used in making the determination of the cause
being (A) Evolution, and not (B) God. Where could we could
go to examine the criteria for ourselves? Another essential part
is our perception is that we perceived the scientists as neutral,
as trustworthy and reliable, as unbiased and not having an
unspoken, or hidden agenda. A look at the origins of the theory
explodes that lie.
The theory of evolution is a search for an explanation for
creation other than considering God. If one is eager to believe
against God, he might not require the same level of proof to
reach a conclusion he favors, as he would to accept one he views
as to his disadvantage. This is the advantage every “con-man”
As Christians we are under obligation to live our lives in
ways that do not give unbelievers a reason to doubt the goodness
Atheists are people of great faith. They believe in politics, not
“In God we trust,” but “In government we trust!” Not having
any other option, they are forced to put their trust in government
What a sad and unpromising hope!
They naively have no choice but to believe bureaucrats and
politicians will handle their positions of trust with integrity and
trustworthiness against all the evidence compiled revealing the
fallenness of human nature.
They realize all humanity faces temptation and when
government officials are tempted, not knowing God is keeping
score, will seek a rational basis to succeed in resisting the
temptation. Otherwise, the voters may lose faith in the system, the
government will go broke, and we will face collapse and anarchy.
Keep the faith. Trust government! Who needs God anyhow!
What if banishing God in the classroom equates, with “we
are not made in God’s image,” therefore we lose some of our
meaning, dignity, significance, purpose and value? I am inclined
to believe that put this way, a considerable majority would favor
allowing God back into the classroom. The objectors might be
somewhat pacified with a generic “god,” but not Christian, Jewish
or Muslim. Evolutionists just want some authority figure who
conveys value to all persons. That is not science, shout objectors!
Really? Who gave them the authority to decide what is and what
is not, science?
Scientists who proclaim, “faith in God is not scientific”
are talking out of turn. Their authority to speak is limited to the
physical and natural world. Think about it! Anything existing
beyond the physical is beyond scope of their area of expertise.
Their position is no more than speculation and conjecture no
matter how much they fume and fuss. Speaking practically, faith
in evolution is not science. Could it be possible? Is there even a
one in a million chance that what they have proclaimed about
the theory of evolution is not the whole story? Is it possible that
evolution is really no more than an alternate explanation that
leaves God out? And can it be proved? And haven’t we
been told that religion is only a holdover from pre-scientific
times and that faith is no different from superstition, myth,
fable and fairytales and legends? Evolutionists
say modern well-educated people no longer look for, look to God?
Why would anyone question them? Doesn’t evolution answer all
the questions? Are there other vital considerations left out? What,
Evolution—the greatest lie ever sold!
The goal is to answer the questions and to send our children
out into the world informed….armored, unafraid, bold and
The goal is to provide insights that are not technical, but are
easy to understand and defeat the evolution juggernaut. (Someone
made the term Big Pharma a well-known pejorative. Can we add
It is science that claims, without any basis or supporting
evidence, the authority to pontificate and rule not only in their
field, but also beyond and into metaphysics, the spiritual and to
the existence or non-existence of God. Tell the children how the
science establishment came to the conclusion against God. It was
not from what they learned in science.
Tell us explicitly WHAT it was that weighed against
God? After all, don’t they represent there are millions of tons of
evidence? Your children think what their authority figures learned
from science made them atheists.
What the authority figures learned was dogma and not
