My church teaches creation, but it doesn’t deny evolution.
Nye is pretending there is a fundamental incompatibility, when there isn’t.
Still I’d like to get him to acknowledge that the hear to “evolution” is natural selection, and that essentially means “survival of the fittest.
Then we’d learn that “fittest” is defined as “that which most readily survives.
Thus, evolution is a tautology, meaning it says essentially nothing (it’s conclusion merely restates its premise).
“Evolution does not explain Creation.” - Charles Darwin
“My church teaches creation, but it doesnt deny evolution.”, YOU need to find a new church. If a “church” cannot get Genesis right then EVERYTHING else they “teach” is suspect.
Evolution as a process of nature is not a problem, it is Evolution as an idealology that is the issue.
Exactly. Put another way, when asked what is the mechanism for evolution, the reply is:
"The Survival of the Fittest"
Question: define "fittest" (this is a problem for evolutionists, because there is absolutely no way to determine the 'fittest' of a species beforehand: this only becomes clear after observing which members of the species manage to survive over time)
Hence the answer: "those who survive"
Thus, evolutionists are stating a meaningless tautology by actually saying that a central mechanism of evolution is "The survival of those who survive."
The Bible and evolution are incompatible.
Genesis says that suffering and death came into the world after Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden. Evolution says that man didn’t show up on the scene until millions of years of suffering and death had already happened.
Christians need to to get beyond the stories we were all taught in Sunday school and learn about the three earth ages. Jesus talked about “the world that was, the world that is and the world that is to come”.
Research the KATABOLE, or “throwing down” of Satan and his angels after the rebellion.
Noah’s flood was not the first!
The Catholic church is open to the concept of evolution.
