They Would Be The Gods Of Creation
Darwinian evolutionists dismiss the existence of God, the Creator of the universe. They presume to that role themselves.
Wishful thinkers, firmly believing that their minds are the creators of the universe, that they are godly creators of nature, rely on"three simple assumptions,” as a reader commented to Darwinian Evolution: You Still Can’t Get Here From There.
The commenter is not alone in relying on assumptions. Richard Dawkins and other well known Darwinian apologists precede their every point with qualifiers such as “we may assume” or “it seems probable.” That’s it; that’s the entirety of the Darwinian hypothesis of evolution, an interesting hypothesis dreamed up by Darwin to refute what he called “the damnable doctrine” of Christianity.
For a fair and detailed assessment of the failures of Darwinian “proofs,” read Stephen Myers’ Darwin’s Doubt.
There are as many hypotheses about the presumed process of evolution as there are evolutionary “scientists.” Fierce battles rage among them, each championing his pet hypothesis. But every single hypothesis, molecular biologists subsequently determine, could not have happened at all, or that the hypothesis works only when a human mind artificially creates a set of conditions that could not have existed at the beginning of an evolutionary chain, or employs a string of developments that must be predetermined and carefully shepherded by the “scientist.” Even those results have dealt with just one or a few and limited aspects of carbon chemical synthesis. Darwinian theory, of course, requires that results occur purely by chance, without the input of an intelligent designer, not in a laboratory under carefully controlled conditions.
None of Darwinian theorists’ efforts gets even remotely close to an hypothesis encompassing the totality of systems that must all, simultaneously, be present in a living organism from the moment of its appearance as a living organism. Because of the necessity for all systems to be present from the start, evolutionists’ assumptions about bit-by-bit random changes over aeons don’t hold water.
Microbiologists have shown that even the simplest of living organisms is so complex, with interdependent systems, that it could not have sustained life even for a few minutes unless all of the systems were operating from the get go. There is no room for the complexity to have evolved over hundreds of million years. All living organisms are so irreducibly complex that they have to have been designed ab initio by some intelligence from elsewhere, whence arises the concept of God.
Add to that, evolutionary “scientists” must simply assume that they will be able to create life themselves, that they will thereby become gods and masters of nature. To date, no researcher has come close to explaining the origin of living organisms. Darwinians, in another grand assumption, have to assume that non-organic chemicals just spontaneously came together to create the common ancestor of all living organisms.
Evolutionary theorists have been compelled to admit that the more deeply they probe into the complex nature of the useful information embedded in DNA and RNA the more mystified they become. Whence came these purposeful and extraordinarily complex sets of highly specific and detailed instruction for the formation and precise alignments of proteins and structures within each individual living cell necessary to sustain life? Whence came the spark of life itself?
Assuredly not by chance in Darwin’s back yard puddle.
