Response to Phil Banker on science education column
“To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by natural selection seems, I freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.” Charles Darwin.
If Darwin had his doubts about the eye, then what else can we surmise he doubted about the rationality of his own theory, i.e., that nobody X nothing = everything?
Two points to your comment: “In countries like Finland, Norway, and China, evolution isn’t treated like some hot-button controversial theory: it’s fact. There’s actual evidence in the fossil record supporting evolution …”
What and where is the actual evidence in the fossil record supporting evolution to which you refer?
Is this empirical, theoretical, or conjectural evidence?
How do you explain the refutation of the “missing links of man”?
Does the evolutionist believe information is vital for life?
If so, then how does the evolutionist’s specie of any life matter know about the pre-existing information and the conditions by which it must draw from in order to: Know that it even exists. Determines its superiority or deficiency to fellow species.
Recognizes specie as friend or foe for the survival of the fittest?
…not to mention in our own bodies (early fetuses have gills and a tail, for example).”
Regardless of the different appearances throughout fertilization/conception and development stages, has a human fetus ever developed into something other than a human being?
Or for that matter has a rainbow trout ever developed into a human being?
Does science have the power/intellect/ability to create anything out of nothing or does science merely observe what is already created and revealed? Is it science you believe in or science fiction?
Exactly what about creationism or intelligent design offends and/or frightens you?
“And God said; Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.” Genesis 1:26-27
Know this, there is a God in heaven, Creator of all life, you included. You aren’t the first nor the last to fight against Him on this subject.
But know this, He wants you to know Him in the most real and intimate way possible through His Son, Jesus Christ.
