Today’s embrace of the theory of evolution by natural selection, as if it were a proven scientific fact, has much more to do with the scientific culture ridden by dishonesty than with the workings of empirical science. When this theory is abandoned as fake only one thing remains: trusting that the entire universe, including human life came into existence thanks to the intelligent design put in place by a creative and powerful God.
This is something that many modern-day scientists and philosophers dare not swallow. Admitting that a mighty Creator is behind the whole creation would lead the evolutionists to ask themselves some tough questions, such as: Who is the Creator? Is there anything that He wants from us? Are we in any way accountable to Him?
The theory of evolution is in fact the religion of science that is ideologically, and not factually driven.
Many people today would rather believe in a nonsensical theory about nothing somehow becoming something without anyone interfering in the process, and call it a science, than pay attention to the abundance of visible evidence of God’s creative power plainly made manifest, according to the words of Paul, in “what has been made” Romans 1:19.20.
Likewise, they would rather believe that adding the imaginary stretches of millions and trillions of years to the fictional evolutionary processes would make them more scientifically credible, than humbly admit that the theory does not hold water. And because they are not able to provide any meaningful empirical demonstration in favor of the theory, many evolutionists, Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins including, have chosen the way of contemptuous insult and mockery of anyone who brings faith and God into the story of our beginnings.
The workings of the militant evolutionists and atheists go hand in hand. Their activism is not much different than the deceptive lullabying of the underworld witch, described in the C.S. Lewis’ children book “The Silver Chair” (The Chronicles of Narnia). Trapped in the underworld and taken hostage by the wicked witch, the Narnia-bound children came face to face with a deceiver who almost succeeded in deceiving them into believing that there existed nothing else but her dark underworld.
“’It is all a dream,’ said the witch, always thrumming. ‘Yes, all a dream’, said Jill. ‘There never was such a world (Narnia),’ said the witch. ‘No,’ said Jill and Scrubb, ‘never was such a world.’ ‘There never was any world but mine’, said the witch.” To the witch the facts did not matter. What counted were her ritualistically repeated lies intended at making the children lose a sight of the obvious truth that above the huge dark cave shines the sun, and spreads beautiful Narnia, ruled by the powerful, just and good lion Aslan. The witch thought that if only she could erase from the children’s minds any memory of Narnia, any notion of the king Aslan would have become nothing more than a myth too.
The theory of evolution is much more than a theoretical concept. It births a dangerous worldview that has inspired philosophers, leaders of revolutionary movements and shapers of ideologies, all of whom were attracted by its immoral social applications and implications. Friedrich Nietzsche, Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler understood just as well as the modern advocates of social evolution do today, that in the universe without God all moral restraints were gone, and the future belonged to the cruelest and meanest of the bullies. For, if the theory of evolution is the scientific and social truth, there exists no moral difference between one man killing another for the pure convenience sake, or crushing an annoying mosquito that has just landed on your hand.
The most evolutionists are still decent people who will not do anything foolish to other fellow men and women. However, this cannot be attributed to the high ethical standards found in the theory of evolution, but to the fact that the current lovers of the theory of evolution continue to feed off the borrowed values of the past generations. While most of them love to brag about how advanced and progressive they are in their thinking, they still dare not live the lives consistent with the worldview inherent with the theory. They are afraid of consequences. While professing boldly their scientific superiority, they are still finding comfort in the value systems derived from the faith in the God of clearly defined moral standards and expectations.
But, gradually, things are changing for the worse. Today we are hearing the talks about how science ought to take control over human evolution. Such statements demonstrate that the scientists and law makers of today are beginning to toy with the fire that does not belong to them. They are like priests of a new kind of humanity who believe that it is given to them to determine what will constitute the new human being. Eugenics, legalization of euthanasia, genetic modifications, merging humans with technology, and other attempts to redefine the boundaries of what it means to be a human being are only a few examples of the experimentations where we see the immorality of social evolution nudging us to take another bite from ”the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” Genesis 2:17. Apparently Ray Kurzweil, Google’s chief futurists, is not the only one who believes that within a decade “humans, with the aid of technology, will be able to live forever.” The deceitful thrumming of the ancient Witch is becoming increasingly louder: “Your eyes will be opened, and you will be like god!” Genesis 3:5.
It all boils down to this: if we are the result of meaningless set of coincidences, journeying through millions of stages of impersonal and meaningless evolutionary history, and heading towards equally meaningless future, then human life is no more meaningful now than at any time in its evolutionary past, and as such it is a deserving prey to any bully or tyrant who will find a way to enslave us.
And why not? For in the universe which is run by the engine of impersonal lines of coincidences there is no room for justice, compassion, empathy, fairness and love. In fact, those qualities are annoyingly obstructing the evolutionary progress of the universe in which only one rule keeps the evil engine of evolution going – survival of the fittest. In the domains of social evolution this would mean the survival of the worst kinds of bullies, dictators, tyrants, all kinds of Borgs, Darth Vaders, Caligulas, demons and human beasts.
Wow! Would any sane person like to live in such a universe?
Thanks God, the theory of evolution is nothing more than a desperate and foolish fiction. Thanks God His revelation trumpets a different truth to anyone who wants to hear: “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Psalm 19:1.
