Is God laughing at the evolutionists?
(Copyright @2009 Yonko Mali, All rights reserved.)
I’ve told that funny story before / but I decided to tell it again today / because my main topic today is / “Is God laughing at the evolutionists?”
Last week / I warned you about the upcoming bi-centennial celebration in February of Charles Darwin and his Theory of Evolution. And I warned you / that there is going to be / lots of hoopla about this / during this next month of February.
Then I told you some interesting stories about Darwin / that will probably not be reported / in the regular media. The first program / was about / how Darwin came to contribute / and support / the South American Christian Missionary Society / because the missionaries proved him wrong about the Feugian peoples / who Darwin thought were sub-human and whose language of grunts and clicks seemed very primitive / and he thought these peoples could never be Christianized. Well these Feugian peoples / were not sub-human, and they were Christianized / after the Christian Missionaries / figured out the language of these people. They had over 30,000 words of grunts and clicks; isn’t that amazing. Scientific linguists / have now discovered other such languages / around the world and are fascinated by them / and called them / The Clicking Languages.
Then my second program on Charles Darwin / which I called / “Charles Darwin: The Struggle For His Eternal Soul”, focused on / the emotional and religious influences in his life. How Darwin’s mother died when he was only 8 / and how his eldest daughter / died when she was only 10. I also told you about some of the significant Christian influences in Darwin’s life / as well as / the agnostic and atheistic influences in his life.
A MISCONCEPTION: DARWIN DID NOT EVENT THE IDEA OF EVOLUTION
Before I continue with the life of Charles Darwin, I should explain that Darwin did not come up with the original idea of evolution; no already many of his contemporaries / were already discussing the idea that the world came to be / in its present state / by some natural processes / which they called Evoluton and not by the direct creation of God. However, Charles Darwin’s significant contribution was his theory of Natural Selection as the biological process that causes species to change / and causes new species to originate.
Did you know / that Darwin did not publish his famous book until he was fifty years old. Darwin was smart enough to wait until he was older to publish his book “On the Origins of Species”. He waited until after he was already established and respected in the scientific community - with the publication of earlier works about his scientific endeavors. Even then Darwin was not sure how his theory of Natural Selection would be received.
Now the regular media will give you the impression that only recently has there been any opposition to Darwin’s theories. That only the current “crop of Creationists” are against his theories. No, from the very start, Darwin theories were argued over and rejected by many scientists of his day.
Now let’s give Darwin the credit that he is due. He was a good scientist. His book included the results of over 25 years of his research and his data that he started when he was a teenager. And Darwin was an honest scientist. He even mentions in his book some of the weaknesses of his theory. He also knew that his theory of Natural Selection could do harm to the religious beliefs of many people.
And Darwin was certainly correct about one thing: species can change and do change. In fact, it has been said that if Darwin simply changed the title and emphasis of his book from On the Origin of Species to How Species Change, he was over 80% correct even 200 hundred years ago.
As I said, I think Darwin was an honest scientist and he would entertain and consider other ideas not like many of the intolerant scientists and educators today. So I wonder if Darwin was alive today and could see all the current scientific data that we have, I wonder if he would change his mind. Unlikely you say.
This is my reasoning. You see one of the basic flaws of the early evolutionists was that life evolved from simpler forms of life, the one cell marine creatures to the most complex form of life: the monkeys and man. You see they thought these one-cell plants and animals were very simple. But if Charles Darwin could see the knowledge from modern micro-biology, he would be amazed how complex these so called simple one-cell plants and animals are. The one-cell animals have a complex DNA structure, they perform digestion, excretion, transportation, sensation, reproduction, etc all in one cell! Then take the one-cell plants, the chemical interactions of photosynthesis and digestion is highly complex. So I wonder Charles Darwin would now have a different perspective on this presumption that life evolved from simpler forms to more complex forms.
But I think God has a sense of humor, these poor evolutionists work so hard in proving their theory. And the more they discover about God’s world and how complex and elegant God’s design is, the harder they have to work to make their theory work!
You know evolutionist cannot even answer that simple question, “What came first, the chicken or the egg?” We know that God created chickens to lay eggs. But the evolutionists not only can’t answer that simple question, that simple question is a major stumbling block to their theory of evolution and a major argument against Darwin’s theory of Natural Selection.
Take the Bombadier Beetle, it’s my favored example. It’s a beetle that can produce a blast of poisonous gas when its enemies get too close. It’s like a flame thrower. There are two tubes in the beetle body and each secret a different chemical, these chemicals are thrust out a short distance from the beetle body where they interact and explode. Now if these tubes were not positioned just right, the beetle would blow itself up!
I can just imagine a convention of these beetle 100 million years ago in the evolutionary age, and one of them saying, look we just lost another million beetles this year to self-explosions. We all need to try to develop our two tubes to be 1 millimeter or so farther from our bodies. And Bill Bettle has a suggestion that we increase the amount of oxygen content in our left tube to increase the explosive effect. HaHa.
You see how did the beetle know to evolve in this fashion, natural selection simply doesn’t explain such complex design decisions. Evolutionary scientists have to at least admit that if evolution is true, then there must be an Intelligent Designer behind it.
If you want to have some fun, go to my website, www.justcallmejohnny.com and under Scientific Matters look at the article about How Evolution may be true after all for scientist find a watch that evolve all by itself, haha.
HaHa. That’s evolution for you.
