EVOLUTION
 

EVOLUTION - A word with so many meanings.  This web page <www.creationism.org> for example, is evolving in content and breadth.  This is to say that it is undergoing change and directed (non-random) improvement.

In science there are six interlocking theories which are often referred to as fundamental to evolution:

#1  COSMIC:  From the theorized Big Bang of (estimated) 14-20 billion years ago to the (evolution or) generation of hydrogen gas into existence.

#2  CHEMICAL:  Gases (beyond hydrogen) and other higher elements evolving into existence.  In other words, increasing molecular & chemical order and complexity over time happening by itself.

#3  STAR & PLANETS:  Gravity, angular momentum, magnetism, radiation, and other "accidentally existing" forces coalesce (or evolve) the molecules (from above) that evolved into existence all by themselves into subsequent proto-stars, then later (over lots and lots of theorized time; billions of years) into stars and planetary bodies.

#4  ORGANIC EVOLUTION:  Life emerging from sterile non-life by believed automatic advanced chemical processes.  This has also been called spontaneous generation or more recently abiogenesis.  Life from non-life; again, all by itself; increasing complexity and at some point in time - generating successive replication all by itself.  Scientists today are using tax dollars to employ advanced, state-of-the-art equipment under expensive, carefully controlled high-technology laboratory conditions but this still hasn't succeeded in any way yet ... trying so hard ... all to show that life could happen accidentally, without much intelligence.  (That being the case indeed.)

#5  MACRO-EVOLUTION:  Kinds of life diverging and occasionally increasing in complexity through random processes down through time.  The theory is that single-celled creatures gave rise to (possibly) multi-cellular marine organisms.  Later fish evolved into amphibians, and then into reptiles which (possibly diverged and) evolved into the birds and mammals.   Over the theorized millions of years the divergent complexity of life in nature has (apparently) increased in order, numbers and magnitude.  Many of today's textbooks show lots of artistic illustrations of such beliefs.

#6  MICRO-EVOLUTION:  Structured changes within pre-existing kinds of life.  Heredity & Variation.  This one is scientific and is observable in nature.


It is important to keep all of these various definitions in mind.  Perhaps some but not all are true and verifiable?  Perhaps others never happened at all?  Just because it can be demonstrated that the fur length of offspring (Evolution #6) may vary per individual, this does not automatically mean that (Evolution #2) molecular chemical combinations get more complex all by themselves.  This belief has not been observed here on Earth at any time; creationists (who agree with Evolution #6) would be skeptical at swallowing belief in Evolution #2 without some kind of testable-repeatable evidence.  It would be nice (for example) to send an oil tanker through an Antarctic storm and end up with a giant chocolate shake, but this has never been observed.

Evolution is a valid process (in science, business, or otherwise); creationists certainly agree with this - when it is directed or built into the design of things.  Certainly automobiles have improved dramatically over the past 100 years, but it didn't happen all by itself.  The evolution of the automobile has been due to intelligent design input, advanced engineering skills and management oversight.  If one just throws a bunch of parts together or puts all the car parts into a giant tumbler along with four quarts of oil and 10 gallons of gas and begins agitating the lot for eight months the end result will not be anything resembling a car.

Evolutionists will contend that the universe (Evolution #1 thru #3) and then successive forms of life (Evolution #4 and #5) slowly got more complex all by themselves.  These beliefs are well illustrated in textbooks.  (The alternative of literal, recent creation is completely unacceptable to even be considered by them.)  They'll claim that (God made lots of mistakes and that) there are transitional fossils supporting their belief system.  Then they'll use something like the beaks on Darwin's Finches (Evolution #6) as evidence of all of this.  Au Contraire!  We can definitely see that Evolution #6 worked fine, but they're still lacking any evidence to support their (underlying; as sinners) desire to (putting it bluntly here) hide from our Creator and their responsibilities as part of the created.  In other words, Evolution #6 is truly scientific, but that should not give us any confidence in Evolution #1 thru #5.  Beak variations in finches (Evolution #6) is to be expected since Darwin's Finches were wisely designed.  Built-in variation has been wisely balanced with the (heredity) built-in limits that the Designer placed there.  Wise design!  Thank the Maker!
 


Concerning Evolution #1 thru #3 - this sure looks like pure speculation!  The Big Bang is primarily believed because without it they'd have to admit that God created everything.  

If ... "God" created the universe then, logically, nothing in life is more important than finding out just who that God is and why we were created.  But many persons would prefer to hide from this inconvenient reality.  Therefore the Big Bang theory (though defying true science, i.e. that "every action has an equal and opposite reaction") is believed and promulgated, but it is  inherently unscientific in nature.  A Little Bang happening all by itself in a small box (to the left) has a greater chance of probability than a Big Bang containing (theoretically) all the matter in the known universe.


A "Little Bang" happening all by itself inside an empty box would be unscientific.  Something from nothing for no reason is unscientific.  Creationists, therefore, standing on the side of science contend that there must of necessity be a Creator.

Since the "Little Bang" hasn't happened in any attic boxes to date - then please don't put your faith in the "Big Bang" belief system - which first and foremost denies God's power and authority over humanity.  That is its purpose and it is an unscientific theory.
