CRI PERSPECTIVE CP0103
EVIDENCE FOR CREATION?
The idea that God created the world and life is often thought to have been disproved by evolutionary theory. Is there any scientific evidence for creation?
The truth is that the scientific evidence overwhelmingly supports creation. Let me attempt to point out just some of this evidence here. First, the scientific community is now almost unanimous in affirming that the universe had a beginning. This is usually referred to in scientific terms as The Big Bang Theory. Of course, this implies that someone or something brought the universe into existence.
Secondly, the universe bears all the marks of having been finely tuned to make life possible. For example, the elementary forces of gravity, electromagnetism, and the atom are precisely what they need to be. The earths size, distance from the sun, rotational period, composition, and many other factors are all just right. The chances of there being even one planet where all of these factors converge by accident are very slim indeed.
Thirdly, the evidence is mounting that life on earth simply could not and did not come into existence through natural processes in a primordial soup. For example, the experiments to prove that it could have happened are suspect because little progress has been made possible due to the ingenious designs on the part of experimenters.
Fourthly, the genetic code of all biological life on earth contains evidence of intelligent design. This is because the genetic code contains information comparable to the information in complex computer programs as well as information in books.
Fifthly, the fossil record continues to be an embarrassment to the Darwinian theory of evolution. The many transitional forms which Darwin predicted would be found simply have not surfaced. This fact has forced evolutionists to modify Darwins Theory, often in absurd ways. In short, it is the theory of naturalistic evolution which is in serious trouble scientifically today, while the Biblical teaching of creation never looked better.
