The Theory of Evolution Doesn’t convince Everyone

            Many have doubts about the theory of evolution.  Thinking people are asking questions.  They want answers that are reasonable, logical and honest.

When students listen to a professor give a lecture, he has the voice of authority.  They assume he is right because he is the professor.  He has the microphone and is heard by all.  If some student, almost under his breath, were to ask, “yes but, why…?” he wouldn’t be heard.  That’s what is happening in the propagation of the theory of evolution.  Students aren’t given a chance to ask questions.  Neither are they encouraged to think for themselves.

It may be a surprise to some to know that not all scientists believe in evolution.  Many are convinced that everything was created by an all wise creator.  Not all scientists are writers.  Many work in laboratories doing research, finding new secrets of nature.  They aren’t in a position to change the opinion of many people.  Not all professors are scientists either.  They are just teaching what they learned in the class room and now they teach by the text book.

Thankfully, there are some who are making an effort to make known the fallacies in the theory of evolution.  Many good books and cinematographic presentations are available.  There are also some excellent web pages that give convincing evidence of creationism.  Two excellent sources are christiananswers.net and creation.com.  You can also go to google and type in “creationism” and find many good sources of information.

The spread of the truth about creationism is often hindered by indifference and the fear of being ridiculed.  I have great respect for students who defend their beliefs in the class room.  If just one or two are willing to ask questions, many times others will defend them.  Adults are often indifferent.  They may not be in agreement with evolution, but they think it’s not worth making a fuss about.

Evolution is just a theory.  Contrary to what many think, it cannot be proven scientifically.  To be honest, we have to say the same thing about creationism.  Making evolution credible requires another theory; that the earth is millions of years old.  If we ask, “Where is the evidence?”,  the evolutionists will most likely answer that changes take place over such  a long period of time that we can’t see them taking place.

Contrary to what some may think, Christians don’t reject the theory of evolution just because it contradicts what the Bible says.  The most logical reason for rejecting it is because of the questions it leaves unanswered.  They are questions like:

1.  If men came from monkeys, why didn’t all the monkeys become men?

2.  If everything evolved from lower forms of life, why do we still have lower

forms of life?

3.  How can one believe that the complexity of life came about by blind chance?

It just doesn’t happen that way.

It does make a difference what you believe about evolution.  If man is nothing more than the product of evolution, then there is no God and no divine law.  We are free to do as we please.  We are free to make changes, believing that we are being carried inevitable upward to a better life.  That explains why many young people are rejecting divine truth.

If evolution is true, then there is no God and the Bible is just a myth.  That is devastating to Christianity.  That leaves us without hope or purpose for life.  That, in part, is the reason why so many young people commit suicide.

The Bible gives us a noble reason for living.  It gives us “strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow.” Jesus offers “life and life more abundantly” (John 10:10).  God sent his Son to this world to die in our place so we could have this life.  John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  Do you have this life?  It can be yours by putting your faith in Christ.
