Evolution is on the ropes

 

Did “homo sapiens” (human beings) come into being by divine fiat or through a long process of evolution? The only explanation you will find in public school and university textbooks is the theory of evolution. Yet, no scientific, provable evidence supporting the theory of evolution has emerged since Charles Darwin popularized it in 1859.

In fact, science seems to be inadvertently disproving this bizarre hypothesis of evolution with new research that is consistently chipping away at the preposterously specious foundation its proponents have erected.

For years evolutionists have believed that “junk DNA” provided much of the validation they needed for their dubious theory. Daniel James Devine in World Magazine reported, “Something was odd about (their theory), though: Out of 3 billion bases, less than 2 percent actually manufactured the proteins making up the human body. The remaining 98 percent were apparently useless – discarded byproducts, some said, of millennia of evolution.

“Even Francis Crick, in a paper he co-authored in 1980, dismissed much of the genome as ‘little better then junk.’ For scientists to ‘hunt obsessively’ for the beneficial function of such DNA, Crick argues, would be ‘folly.’”

However, scientists have now discovered that “junk DNA” plays a critical role in controlling how cells, organs, and other tissues behave. This groundbreaking discovery deals a knockout blow to all those who have foolishly embraced the hypothesis of Darwinian evolution.

DNA stands for deoxyribonucleic acid, which is the hereditary material in humans and almost all other organisms. Nearly every cell in a person’s body has the same DNA and everyone’s DNA is different, just like their fingerprints are different.

“Evolution, theistic and atheistic, carried to its logical conclusion, robs Christ of the glory of a virgin birth, of the majesty of His deity, and of the triumph of His resurrection.”

According to the modern version of Darwin’s theory, DNA contains a program for embryo development that is passed down from generation to generation; the program is implemented by proteins encoded by DNA, and accidental DNA mutations introduce changes in those proteins that natural selection then shapes into new species, organs, and body plans. When scientists discovered 40 years ago that about 98 percent of our DNA does not encode proteins, the non-protein-coding portion was labeled “junk” and attributed to molecular accidents that have accumulated in the course of evolution.

Recent books by Richard Dawkins, Francis Collins, and others have used this “junk DNA” as evidence for Darwinian evolution and evidence against creationism (since our Creator would presumably not have filled our genome with so much garbage). But recent genome evidence shows that much of our non-protein-coding DNA performs essential biological functions.

A recent article in the Wall Street Journal by Gautam Naik and Lee Hotz explained, “The deepest look into the human genome so far shows it to be a richer, messier, and more intriguing place than was believed just a decade ago.”

The article continued, “Kick-started in 2003 and funded largely by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, Encode (Encyclopedia of DNA Elements) has so far cost $185 million and involved more than 440 scientists. According to one scientist’s estimate, if all the genomic data found in the effort were printed on a wall that is about 52 ½ feet high, the structure would be some 18 miles long.

If we cannot accept the historical accuracy of Genesis 1-11, how, then will we be able to accept any biblical concept of man’s origin?

This scientific breakthrough could not only revolutionize the understanding and treatment of hundreds of diseases, but it certainly corroborates creationism in a profound way.

Though they would never admit it, this devastating blow to evolutionists has them on the ropes. The facts are undermining their secularist worldview and exposing the fallacy of their ideological position, which still after more than 150 years remains nothing more than a “theory”.

Why do so many secularists want to diminish and denigrate creationism? Because if scientists can somehow prove that men ultimately evolved from some primordial scum to a monkey and then to a human being then they can legitimately say that the sin nature is an inherited animal characteristic and cannot be a consequence of the fall of man through disobedience. This denies the need of a Redeemer, and thus the atonement of Christ is neglected or denied.

G. Richard Culp explains, “One who doubts the Genesis account will not be the same man he once was, for his attitude toward Holy Scripture has been eroded by false teaching. Genesis is repeatedly referred to in the New Testament, and it cannot be separated from the total Christian message.”

Henry Morris said, “Denying the historical validity of the Creation account also undermines the authority of the New Testament and of Christ Himself.”

John C. Whitcomb remarked, “If Genesis is not historically dependable, then Jesus is not a dependable guide to all truth, and we are without a Savior.”

If we cannot accept the historical accuracy of Genesis 1-11, how, then will we be able to accept any biblical concept of man’s origin? In the New Testament Christ speaks of the creation of both male and female in Matthew 19:4 and Paul states in I Corinthians 11:7 that man has been made in the image of God.

Paul also called Christ the “last Adam.” If the first Adam was a myth, then is the last Adam (Jesus Christ) also a myth?

William Jennings Bryan, who argued for the prosecution and against Clarence Darrow in the Scopes Monkey Trial, said, “Christ must save a world that godless intelligence has almost ruined. Do not belittle Christ as He undertakes the task.

“Evolution, theistic and atheistic, carried to its logical conclusion, robs Christ of the glory of a virgin birth, of the majesty of His deity, and of the triumph of His resurrection. That kind of Christ cannot save the world.

“We need the full statured Christ of whom the Bible tells; the Christ whose blood has colored the stream of time, the Christ whose philosophy fits into every human need, the Christ whose teachings alone can solve the problems that vex our hearts and perplex the world.”
