Skip to comments.Evangelist Takes On Darwin (Temple of Darwin cries blasphemy!)
Posted on 09/28/2009 8:12:21 AM PDT by GodGunsGuts
Sept 27, 2009 What would Darwin do? Just in time for the 150th anniversary of The Origin of Species, his magnum opus has been reprinted with an introduction not by a scientist or historian, but by a Christian evangelist. He and a Christian movie actor are trying to get their special edition to students at major universities. Talk about brashness. Darwins defenders are stepping on themselves to condemn this well, blasphemy...

You gotta love the pure chutzpah of these two!
Which edition is the one that has Darwin’s racism included?
In hundreds of posts on the same subject you have never addressed the fact that if natural selection and evolution exist they were created by God. And if they were created by God He might have used them.
For later perusing...
Poor Charles at LGF has gone completely around the bend over the Christian assault on ‘science’. With the example of
the population bomb-acid rain-alar apples-global warming-drive over 35 miles per hour and your head will fly off-climate change ‘science’ one would think a little modesty is called for from our ‘scientists’
Natural selection was developed by Edward Blythe, a creationist. There is no problem with understanding it as a conservative force that slows down entropy in a fallen world.
You need to define what you mean by "evolution." There are a wide array of dynamic genetic effects going on over time in God's created world. If we simply define any and all genetic changes over time as "evolution" then yes, evolution happens.
But if you mean that God "used" blind chance processes combined with natural selection to generate life, then you are going against both Scripture and science. Science shows such processes are wholly incompentent to produce all but the most trivial effects. Even the 'interesting' cases such as penicillin resistance, warfarin resistance, malaria resistance and so on are fluke side effects of damaging mutations, not constructive changes at the biomolecular/systems level.
Ultimately, accusing God of relying on 'evolution' as most people understand it, is accusing God of being a clumsy, incompetent butcher who uses death and suffering to accomplish his ends - prior to the Fall of man. Atheists like David Hull (in his classic article God of the Galapagos) understand this and rightly reject such a demonic 'god.'
Macro-evolution does not exist, because God created the Universe and everything in it fully formed and fully functional over the course of six normal length Earth days. Natural selection as a creative force also does not exist, because God created the Universe and everything in it fully formed and fully functional over the course of six normal length Earth days.
“On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.”
Get used to laymen increasingly getting in the face of the Temple of Darwin.
Of course I'll have to make room by taking down the pictures of Darwin and Wallace. But now that Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort have tossed the Theory of Evolution into the trashbin of history, I'll be happy to!
That’s not remotely a scientific argument.
Thanks for the ping!
There is no such thing is a "normal earth day" as a constant period of time. The day is measurably longer today than is was even 100 years ago die to things like tidal acceleration. Your perception of God is that He is bound by the limits of your understanding. God is timeless. He always was and always will be. Linear time is an artifact of the limitations of human perception. In God's creation process time, as you perceive and measure it, is only a witness.
Natural selection as a creative force also does not exist"
If and only if you consider "Nature" to be something other than a construct of God.
Where does the Bible teach that dinos were domesticated? Typical liar for Darwin.
