The Evolution Deceit
Every detail in this universe points to a superior creation. By contrast,
materialism, which seeks to deny the fact of creation in the universe,
is nothing but an unscientific fallacy.
Once materialism is invalidated, all other theories based on this philosophy
are rendered baseless. Foremost of them is Darwinism, that is, the theory
of evolution. This theory, which argues that life originated from inanimate
matter through coincidences, has been demolished with the recognition
that the universe was created by God. American astrophysicist Hugh Ross
explains this as follows:
Atheism, Darwinism, and virtually all the "isms"
emanating from the eighteenth to the twentieth century philosophies
are built upon the assumption, the incorrect assumption, that the universe
is infinite. The singularity has brought us face to face with the cause
– or causer – beyond/behind/before the universe and all that it contains,
including life itself. 1
It is God Who created the universe and Who designed it down to its smallest
detail. Therefore, it is impossible for the theory of evolution, which
holds that living beings are not created by God, but are products of coincidences,
to be true.
Unsurprisingly, when we look at the theory of evolution, we see that
this theory is denounced by scientific findings. The design in life is
extremely complex and striking. In the inanimate world, for instance,
we can explore how sensitive are the balances which atoms rest upon, and
further, in the animate world, we can observe in what complex designs
these atoms were brought together, and how extraordinary are the mechanisms
and structures such as proteins, enzymes, and cells, which are manufactured
This extraordinary design in life invalidated Darwinism at the end of
the 20th century.
We have dealt with this subject in great detail in some of our other
studies, and shall continue to do so. However, we think that, considering
its importance, it will be helpful to make a short summary here as well.
The Scientific Collapse of Darwinism
Even Charles Darwin admitted the difficulties facing his own
Although a doctrine going back as far as ancient Greece, the theory of
evolution was advanced extensively in the 19th century. The most important
development that made the theory the top topic of the world of science
was the book by Charles Darwin titled "The Origin of Species"
published in 1859. In this book, Darwin denied that different living species
on the earth were created separately by God. According to Darwin, all
living beings had a common ancestor and they diversified over time through
Darwin's theory was not based on any concrete scientific finding; as
he also accepted, it was just an "assumption." Moreover, as
Darwin confessed in the long chapter of his book titled "Difficulties
of the Theory," the theory was failing in the face of many critical
Darwin invested all his hopes in new scientific discoveries, which he
expected to solve the "Difficulties of the Theory." However,
contrary to his expectations, scientific findings expanded the dimensions
of these difficulties.
The defeat of Darwinism against science can be reviewed under three basic
1) The theory can by no means explain how life originated on the earth.
2) There is no scientific finding showing that the "evolutionary
mechanisms" proposed by the theory have any power to evolve at all.
3) The fossil record proves completely the contrary of the suggestions
of the theory of evolution.
In this section, we will examine these three basic points in general
The First Insurmountable Step: The Origin of Life
The theory of evolution posits that all living species evolved from a
single living cell that emerged on the primitive earth 3.8 billion years
ago. How a single cell could generate millions of complex living species
and, if such an evolution really occurred, why traces of it cannot be
observed in the fossil record are some of the questions the theory cannot
answer. However, first and foremost, of the first step of the alleged
evolutionary process it has to be inquired: How did this "first cell"
Since the theory of evolution denies creation and does not accept any
kind of supernatural intervention, it maintains that the "first cell"
originated coincidentally within the laws of nature, without any design,
plan, or arrangement. According to the theory, inanimate matter must have
produced a living cell as a result of coincidences. This, however, is
a claim inconsistent with even the most unassailable rules of biology.
"Life Comes from Life"
In his book, Darwin never referred to the origin of life. The primitive
understanding of science in his time rested on the assumption that living
beings had a very simple structure. Since medieval times, spontaneous
generation, the theory asserting that non-living materials came together
to form living organisms, had been widely accepted. It was commonly believed
that insects came into being from food leftovers, and mice from wheat.
Interesting experiments were conducted to prove this theory. Some wheat
was placed on a dirty piece of cloth, and it was believed that mice would
originate from it after a while.
With the experiments he carried out, Louis Pasteur invalidated
the claim that "inanimate matter can create life", which constituted
the groundwork of the theory of evolution.
Similarly, worms developing in meat was assumed to be evidence of spontaneous
generation. However, only some time later was it understood that worms
did not appear on meat spontaneously, but were carried there by flies
in the form of larvae, invisible to the naked eye.
Even in the period when Darwin wrote The Origin of Species, the
belief that bacteria could come into existence from non-living matter
was widely accepted in the world of science.
However, five years after Darwin's book was published,
the discovery of Louis Pasteur disproved this belief, which constituted
the groundwork of evolution. Pasteur summarized the conclusion he reached
after time-consuming studies and experiments: "The claim that inanimate
matter can originate life is buried in history for good." 2
Advocates of the theory of evolution resisted the findings of Pasteur
for a long time. However, as the development of science unraveled the
complex structure of the cell of a living being, the idea that life could
come into being coincidentally faced an even greater impasse.
Inconclusive Efforts in the 20th Century
Alexander Oparin's attempts to offer an evolutionist explanation
for the origin of life ended in a great fiasco.
The first evolutionist who took up the subject of the
origin of life in the 20th century was the renowned Russian biologist
Alexander Oparin. With various theses he advanced in the 1930's, he tried
to prove that the cell of a living being could originate by coincidence.
These studies, however, were doomed to failure, and Oparin had to make
the following confession: "Unfortunately, the origin of the cell
remains a question which is actually the darkest point of the entire evolution
As accepted also by the latest evolutionist theorists, the origin
of life is still a great stumbling block for the theory of evolution.
Evolutionist followers of Oparin tried to carry out experiments to solve
the problem of the origin of life. The best known of these experiments
was carried out by American chemist Stanley Miller in 1953. Combining
the gases he alleged to have existed in the primordial earth's atmosphere
in an experiment set-up, and adding energy to the mixture, Miller synthesized
several organic molecules (amino acids) present in the structure of proteins.
Barely a few years had passed before it was revealed
that this experiment, which was then presented as an important step in
the name of evolution, was invalid, the atmosphere used in the experiment
having been very different from real earth conditions. 4
After a long silence, Miller confessed that the atmosphere
medium he used was unrealistic. 5
All the evolutionist efforts put forth throughout the 20th century to
explain the origin of life ended with failure. The geochemist Jeffrey
Bada from San Diego Scripps Institute accepts this fact in an article
published in Earth Magazine in 1998:
Today as we leave the twentieth century, we still face
the biggest unsolved problem that we had when we entered the twentieth
century: How did life originate on Earth? 6
The Complex Structure of Life
The primary reason why the theory of evolution ended up in such a big
impasse about the origin of life is that even the living organisms deemed
the simplest have incredibly complex structures. The cell of a living
being is more complex than all of the technological products produced
by man. Today, even in the most developed laboratories of the world, a
living cell cannot be produced by bringing inorganic materials together.
The conditions required for the formation of a cell are too great in
quantity to be explained away by coincidences. The probability of proteins,
the building blocks of cell, being synthesized coincidentally, is 1 in
10950 for an average protein made up of 500 amino acids. In
mathematics, a probability smaller than 1 over 1050 is practically
considered to be impossible.
The DNA molecule, which is located in the nucleus of the cell and which
stores genetic information, is an incredible databank. It is calculated
that if the information coded in DNA were written down, this would make
a giant library consisting of 900 volumes of encyclopaedias of 500 pages
A very interesting dilemma emerges at this point: the DNA can only replicate
with the help of some specialized proteins (enzymes). However, the synthesis
of these enzymes can only be realized by the information coded in DNA.
As they both depend on each other, they have to exist at the same time
for replication. This brings the scenario that life originated by itself
to a deadlock. Prof. Leslie Orgel, an evolutionist of repute from the
University of San Diego, California, confesses this fact in the September
1994 issue of the Scientific American magazine:
It is extremely improbable that proteins and nucleic
acids, both of which are structurally complex, arose spontaneously in
the same place at the same time. Yet it also seems impossible to have
one without the other. And so, at first glance, one might have to conclude
that life could never, in fact, have originated by chemical means. 7
No doubt, if it is impossible for life to have originated from natural
causes, then it has to be accepted that life was "created" in
a supernatural way. This fact explicitly invalidates the theory of evolution,
whose main purpose is to deny creation.
Imaginary Mechanisms of Evolution
of the facts nullifying the theory of evolution is the incredibly
complex structure of life. The DNA molecule located in the nucleus
of cells of living beings is an example of this. The DNA is a sort
of databank formed of the arrangement of four different molecules
in different sequences. This databank contains the codes of all
the physical traits of that living being. When the human DNA is
put into writing, it is calculated that this would result in an
encyclopaedia made up of 900 volumes. Unquestionably, such extraordinary
information definitively refutes the concept of coincidence.
The second important point that negates Darwin's theory is that both
concepts put forward by the theory as "evolutionary mechanisms"
were understood to have, in reality, no evolutionary power.
Darwin based his evolution allegation entirely on the mechanism of "natural
selection". The importance he placed on this mechanism was evident
in the name of his book: The Origin of Species, By Means Of Natural Selection…
Natural selection holds that those living things that are stronger and
more suited to the natural conditions of their habitats will survive in
the struggle for life. For example, in a deer herd under the threat of
attack by wild animals, those that can run faster will survive. Therefore,
the deer herd will be comprised of faster and stronger individuals. However,
unquestionably, this mechanism will not cause deer to evolve and transform
themselves into another living species, for instance, horses.
Therefore, the mechanism of natural selection has no evolutionary power.
Darwin was also aware of this fact and had to state this in his book The
Origin of Species:
Natural selection can do nothing until favourable
variations chance to occur.8
So, how could these "favourable variations" occur? Darwin tried
to answer this question from the standpoint of the primitive understanding
of science in his age. According to the French biologist Lamarck, who
lived before Darwin, living creatures passed on the traits they acquired
during their lifetime to the next generation and these traits, accumulating
from one generation to another, caused new species to be formed. For instance,
according to Lamarck, giraffes evolved from antelopes; as they struggled
to eat the leaves of high trees, their necks were extended from generation
Darwin also gave similar examples, and in his book
The Origin of Species, for instance, said that some bears going into water
to find food transformed themselves into whales over time.9
However, the laws of inheritance discovered by Mendel and verified by
the science of genetics that flourished in the 20th century,
utterly demolished the legend that acquired traits were passed on to subsequent
generations. Thus, natural selection fell out of favour as an evolutionary
Neo-Darwinism and Mutations
In order to find a solution, Darwinists advanced the "Modern Synthetic
Theory", or as it is more commonly known, Neo-Darwinism, at the end
of the 1930's. Neo-Darwinism added mutations, which are distortions formed
in the genes of living beings because of external factors such as radiation
or replication errors, as the "cause of favourable variations"
in addition to natural mutation.
Since the beginning of the century, evolutionists have been trying
to produce mutations in fruit flies, and give this as an example
for useful mutation. However, the only result obtained at the end
of these efforts that lasted for decades were disfigured, diseased
and defective flies. Above is the head of a normal fruit fly and
on the right is the head of a mutated fruit fly.
Today, the model that stands for evolution in the world is Neo-Darwinism.
The theory maintains that millions of living beings present on the earth
formed as a result of a process whereby numerous complex organs of these
organisms such as the ears, eyes, lungs, and wings, underwent "mutations,"
that is, genetic disorders. Yet, there is an outright scientific fact
that totally undermines this theory: Mutations do not cause living beings
to develop; on the contrary, they always cause harm to them.
The reason for this is very simple: the DNA has a very complex structure
and random effects can only cause harm to it. American geneticist B.G.
Ranganathan explains this as follows:
Mutations are small, random, and harmful. They rarely
occur and the best possibility is that they will be ineffectual. These
four characteristics of mutations imply that mutations cannot lead to
an evolutionary development. A random change in a highly specialised organism
is either ineffectual or harmful. A random change in a watch cannot improve
the watch. It will most probably harm it or at best be ineffectual. An
earthquake does not improve the city, it brings destruction. 10
The theory of evolution claims that living species gradually evolved
from one another. The fossil record, however, explicitly falsifies
this claim. For example, in the Cambrian Period, some 550 million
years ago, tens of totally distinct living species emerged suddenly.
These living beings depicted in the above picture have very complex
structures. This fact, referred to as the "Cambrian Explosion" in
scientific literature is plain evidence of creation.
Not surprisingly, no mutation example, which is useful, that is, which
is observed to develop the genetic code, has been observed so far. All
mutations have proved to be harmful. It was understood that mutation,
which is presented as an "evolutionary mechanism," is actually
a genetic occurrence that harms living beings, and leaves them disabled.
(The most common effect of mutation on human beings is cancer). No doubt,
a destructive mechanism cannot be an "evolutionary mechanism."
Natural selection, on the other hand, "can do nothing by itself"
as Darwin also accepted. This fact shows us that there is no "evolutionary
mechanism" in nature. Since no evolutionary mechanism exists, neither
could any imaginary process called evolution have taken place.
The Fossil Record: No Sign of Intermediate Form
The clearest evidence that the scenario suggested by the theory of evolution
did not take place is the fossil record.
According to the theory of evolution, every living species has sprung
from a predecessor. A previously existing species turned into something
else in time and all species have come into being in this way. According
to the theory, this transformation proceeds gradually over millions of
The fossil record is a great barricade in front of the theory of
evolution. The fossil record shows that living species emerged suddenly
and fully-formed without any evolutionary transitional form between
them. This fact is evidence that species are created separately.
Had this been the case, then numerous intermediary species should have
existed and lived within this long transformation period.
For instance, some half-fish/half-reptiles should have lived in the past
which had acquired some reptilian traits in addition to the fish traits
they already had. Or there should have existed some reptile-birds, which
acquired some bird traits in addition to the reptilian traits they already
had. Since these would be in a transitional phase, they should be disabled,
defective, crippled living beings. Evolutionists refer to these imaginary
creatures, which they believe to have lived in the past, as "transitional
If such animals had really existed, there should be millions and even
billions of them in number and variety. More importantly, the remains
of these strange creatures should be present in the fossil record. In
The Origin of Species, Darwin explained:
If my theory be true, numberless intermediate varieties,
linking most closely all of the species of the same group together must
assuredly have existed... Consequently, evidence of their former existence
could be found only amongst fossil remains.11
Darwin's Hopes Shattered
However, although evolutionists have been making strenuous efforts to
find fossils since the middle of the 19th century all over the world,
no transitional forms have yet been uncovered. All the fossils unearthed
in excavations showed that, contrary to the expectations of evolutionists,
life appeared on earth all of a sudden and fully-formed.
A famous British paleontologist, Derek V. Ager, admits this fact, even
though he is an evolutionist:
The point emerges that if we examine the fossil record
in detail, whether at the level of orders or of species, we find — over
and over again — not gradual evolution, but the sudden explosion of
one group at the expense of another.12
This means that in the fossil record, all living species suddenly emerge
as fully formed, without any intermediate forms in between. This is just
the opposite of Darwin's assumptions. Also, it is very strong evidence
that living beings are created. The only explanation of a living species
emerging suddenly and complete in every detail without any evolutionary
ancestor can be that this species was created. This fact is admitted also
by the widely known evolutionist biologist Douglas Futuyma:
Creation and evolution, between them, exhaust the
possible explanations for the origin of living things. Organisms either
appeared on the earth fully developed or they did not. If they did not,
they must have developed from pre-existing species by some process of
modification. If they did appear in a fully developed state, they must
indeed have been created by some omnipotent intelligence. 13
Fossils show that living beings emerged fully developed and in a perfect
state on the earth. That means that "the origin of species"
is, contrary to Darwin's supposition, not evolution but creation.
The Tale of Human Evolution
The subject most often brought up by the advocates of the theory of evolution
is the subject of the origin of man. The Darwinist claim holds that the
modern men of today evolved from some kind of ape-like creatures. During
this alleged evolutionary process, which is supposed to have started 4-5
million years ago, it is claimed that there existed some "transitional
forms" between modern man and his ancestors. According to this completely
imaginary scenario, four basic "categories" are listed:
2. Homo habilis
3. Homo erectus
4. Homo sapiens
FALSE MASKS FROM EVOLUTIONISTS
There are no fossil remains that support the tale of human evolution.
On the contrary, the fossil record shows that there is an insurmountable
barrier between apes and men. In the face of this truth, evolutionists
fixed their hopes on certain drawings and models. They randomly
place masks on the fossil remains and fabricate imaginary half-ape,
Evolutionists call the so-called first ape-like ancestors
of men "Australopithecus " which means "South African ape."
These living beings are actually nothing but an old ape species that has
become extinct. Extensive research done on various Australopithecus specimens
by two world famous anatomists from England and the USA, namely, Lord
Solly Zuckerman and Prof. Charles Oxnard, has shown that these belonged
to an ordinary ape species that became extinct and bore no resemblance
Evolutionists classify the next stage of human evolution
as "homo," that is "man." According to the evolutionist
claim, the living beings in the Homo series are more developed than Australopithecus .
Evolutionists devise a fanciful evolution scheme by arranging different
fossils of these creatures in a particular order. This scheme is imaginary
because it has never been proved that there is an evolutionary relation
between these different classes. Ernst Mayr, one of the foremost defenders
of the theory of evolution in the 20th century, admits this fact by saying
that "the chain reaching as far as Homo sapiens is actually lost."
By outlining the link chain as "Australopithecus
> Homo habilis > Homo erectus > Homo sapiens," evolutionists
imply that each of these species is one another's ancestor. However, recent
findings of paleoanthropologists have revealed that Australopithecus ,
Homo habilis and Homo erectus lived at different parts of the world at
the same time.16
Moreover, a certain segment of humans classified as
Homo erectus have lived up until very modern times. Homo sapiens neandarthalensis
and Homo sapiens sapiens (modern man) co-existed in the same region.17
This situation apparently indicates the invalidity of the claim that
they are ancestors of one another. A paleontologist from Harvard University,
Stephen Jay Gould, explains this deadlock of the theory of evolution although
he is an evolutionist himself:
What has become of our ladder if there are three coexisting
lineages of hominids (A. africanus, the robust australopithecines, and
H. habilis), none clearly derived from another? Moreover, none of the
three display any evolutionary trends during their tenure on earth.18
Put briefly, the scenario of human evolution, which is sought to be upheld
with the help of various drawings of some "half ape, half human"
creatures appearing in the media and course books, that is, frankly, by
means of propaganda, is nothing but a tale with no scientific ground.
Lord Solly Zuckerman, one of the most famous and respected scientists
in the U.K., who carried out research on this subject for years, and particularly
studied Australopithecus fossils for 15 years, finally concluded, despite
being an evolutionist himself, that there is, in fact, no such family
tree branching out from ape-like creatures to man.
Zuckerman also made an interesting "spectrum of science." He
formed a spectrum of sciences ranging from those he considered scientific
to those he considered unscientific. According to Zuckerman's spectrum,
the most "scientific"–that is, depending on concrete data–fields
of science are chemistry and physics. After them come the biological sciences
and then the social sciences. At the far end of the spectrum, which is
the part considered to be most "unscientific," are "extra-sensory
perception"–concepts such as telepathy and sixth sense–and finally
"human evolution." Zuckerman explains his reasoning:
We then move right off the register of objective
truth into those fields of presumed biological science, like extrasensory
perception or the interpretation of man's fossil history, where to the
faithful (evolutionist) anything is possible - and where the ardent
believer (in evolution) is sometimes able to believe several contradictory
things at the same time.19
The tale of human evolution boils down to nothing but the prejudiced
interpretations of some fossils unearthed by certain people, who blindly
adhere to their theory.
Technology In The Eye and The Ear
Another subject that remains unanswered by evolutionary theory is the
excellent quality of perception in the eye and the ear.
Before passing on to the subject of the eye, let us briefly answer the
question of "how we see". Light rays coming from an object fall
oppositely on the retina of the eye. Here, these light rays are transmitted
into electric signals by cells and they reach a tiny spot at the back
of the brain called the centre of vision. These electric signals are perceived
in this centre of the brain as an image after a series of processes. With
this technical background, let us do some thinking.
The brain is insulated from light. That means that the inside of the
brain is solid dark, and light does not reach the location where the brain
is situated. The place called the centre of vision is a solid dark place
where no light ever reaches; it may even be the darkest place you have
ever known. However, you observe a luminous, bright world in this pitch
The image formed in the eye is so sharp and distinct that even the technology
of the 20th century has not been able to attain it. For instance,
look at the book you read, your hands with which you hold it, then lift
your head and look around you. Have you ever seen such a sharp and distinct
image as this one at any other place? Even the most developed television
screen produced by the greatest television producer in the world cannot
provide such a sharp image for you. This is a three-dimensional, coloured,
and extremely sharp image. For more than 100 years, thousands of engineers
have been trying to achieve this sharpness. Factories, huge premises were
established, much research has been done, plans and designs have been
made for this purpose. Again, look at a TV screen and the book you hold
in your hands. You will see that there is a big difference in sharpness
and distinction. Moreover, the TV screen shows you a two-dimensional image,
whereas with your eyes, you watch a three-dimensional perspective having
For many years, ten of thousands of engineers have tried to make a three-dimensional
TV, and reach the vision quality of the eye. Yes, they have made a three-dimensional
television system but it is not possible to watch it without putting on
glasses; moreover, it is only an artificial three-dimension. The background
is more blurred, the foreground appears like a paper setting. Never has
it been possible to produce a sharp and distinct vision like that of the
eye. In both the camera and the television, there is a loss of image quality.
Evolutionists claim that the mechanism producing this sharp and distinct
image has been formed by chance. Now, if somebody told you that the television
in your room was formed as a result of chance, that all its atoms just
happened to come together and make up this device that produces an image,
what would you think? How can atoms do what thousands of people cannot?
If a device producing a more primitive image than the eye could not have
been formed by chance, then it is very evident that the eye and the image
seen by the eye could not have been formed by chance. The same situation
applies to the ear. The outer ear picks up the available sounds by the
auricle and directs them to the middle ear; the middle ear transmits the
sound vibrations by intensifying them; the inner ear sends these vibrations
to the brain by translating them into electric signals. Just as with the
eye, the act of hearing finalises in the centre of hearing in the brain.
The situation in the eye is also true for the ear. That is, the brain
is insulated from sound just like it is from light: it does not let any
sound in. Therefore, no matter how noisy is the outside, the inside of
the brain is completely silent. Nevertheless, the sharpest sounds are
perceived in the brain. In your brain, which is insulated from sound,
you listen to the symphonies of an orchestra, and hear all the noises
in a crowded place. However, if the sound level in your brain was measured
by a precise device at that moment, it would be seen that a complete silence
is prevailing there.
As is the case with imagery, decades of effort have been spent in trying
to generate and reproduce sound that is faithful to the original. The
results of these efforts are sound recorders, high-fidelity systems, and
systems for sensing sound. Despite all this technology and the thousands
of engineers and experts who have been working on this endeavour, no sound
has yet been obtained that has the same sharpness and clarity as the sound
perceived by the ear. Think of the highest-quality HI-FI systems produced
by the biggest company in the music industry. Even in these devices, when
sound is recorded some of it is lost; or when you turn on a HI-FI you
always hear a hissing sound before the music starts. However, the sounds
that are the products of the technology of the human body are extremely
sharp and clear. A human ear never perceives a sound accompanied by a
hissing sound or with atmospherics as does HI-FI; it perceives sound exactly
as it is, sharp and clear. This is the way it has been since the creation
So far, no visual or recording apparatus produced by man has been as
sensitive and successful in perceiving sensory data as are the eye and
However, as far as seeing and hearing are concerned, a far greater fact
lies beyond all this.
To Whom Does the Consciousness that Sees and Hears Within the Brain Belong?
Who is it that watches an alluring world in its brain, listens to symphonies
and the twittering of birds, and smells the rose?
The stimulations coming from the eyes, ears, and nose of a human being
travel to the brain as electro-chemical nervous impulses. In biology,
physiology, and biochemistry books, you can find many details about how
this image forms in the brain. However, you will never come across the
most important fact about this subject: Who is it that perceives these
electro-chemical nervous impulses as images, sounds, odours and sensory
events in the brain? There is a consciousness in the brain that perceives
all this without feeling any need for eye, ear, and nose. To whom does
this consciousness belong? There is no doubt that this consciousness does
not belong to the nerves, the fat layer and neurons comprising the brain.
This is why Darwinist-materialists, who believe that everything is comprised
of matter, cannot give any answer to these questions.
For this consciousness is the spirit created by God. The spirit needs
neither the eye to watch the images, nor the ear to hear the sounds. Furthermore,
nor does it need the brain to think.
Everyone who reads this explicit and scientific fact should ponder on
Almighty God, should fear Him and seek refuge in Him, He Who squeezes
the entire universe in a pitch-dark place of a few cubic centimeters in
a three-dimensional, coloured, shadowy, and luminous form.
A Materialist Faith
The information we have presented so far shows us that the theory of
evolution is a claim evidently at variance with scientific findings. The
theory's claim on the origin of life is inconsistent with science, the
evolutionary mechanisms it proposes have no evolutionary power, and fossils
demonstrate that the intermediate forms required by the theory never existed.
So, it certainly follows that the theory of evolution should be pushed
aside as an unscientific idea. This is how many ideas such as the earth-centered
universe model have been taken out of the agenda of science throughout
However, the theory of evolution is pressingly kept on the agenda of
science. Some people even try to represent criticisms directed against
the theory as an "attack on science." Why?
The reason is that the theory of evolution is an indispensable dogmatic
belief for some circles. These circles are blindly devoted to materialist
philosophy and adopt Darwinism because it is the only materialist explanation
that can be put forward for the workings of nature.
Interestingly enough, they also confess this fact from time to time.
A well known geneticist and an outspoken evolutionist, Richard C. Lewontin
from Harvard University, confesses that he is "first and foremost
a materialist and then a scientist":
It is not that the methods and institutions of science
somehow compel us accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world,
but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to
material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts
that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no
matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is
absolute, so we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door. 20
These are explicit statements that Darwinism is a dogma kept alive just
for the sake of adherence to the materialist philosophy. This dogma maintains
that there is no being save matter. Therefore, it argues that inanimate,
unconscious matter created life. It insists that millions of different
living species; for instance, birds, fish, giraffes, tigers, insects,
trees, flowers, whales and human beings originated as a result of the
interactions between matter such as the pouring rain, the lightning flash,
etc., out of inanimate matter. This is a precept contrary both to reason
and science. Yet Darwinists continue to defend it just so as "not
to allow a Divine Foot in the door."
Anyone who does not look at the origin of living beings with a materialist
prejudice will see this evident truth: All living beings are works of
a Creator, Who is All-Powerful, All-Wise and All-Knowing. This Creator
is God, Who created the whole universe from non-existence, designed it
in the most perfect form, and fashioned all living beings.
