Playing God and Proving Lies

So, I heard this report on the radio this week about how a group of researchers are all excited because they just proved that some crude tools and human teeth they found in China are 1.7 million years old.

Yes, million.

How did they “prove” it? By measuring magnetic particles in the rocks where they found the artifacts and gauging the age based on shifts in the earth’s magnetic poles over the past several thousand centuries.`

Come again?

First of all, who’s to say that the artifacts are the same age as the surrounding rocks? That conclusion, in and of itself, is flat out silly. What if I took a 1982 penny and threw it one some million-year-old dirt? Does that now mean the penny is a million years old?

More importantly, though, I’m supposed to believe science – which is inherently fallible and constantly changing – over the infallible and unchanging Word of God that He created mankind in His likeness.

Then God said, Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.

So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.

God blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” – Genesis 1:26-28

Hard to fathom that a higher power conjured us up out of thin air? Sure. But, is it really soooo much more plausible that humans were born out of primordial muck and evolved over millions of years — making our way from single-celled amoeba to some sort of fishy things, then to apes and finally homo erectus? Does that make any more sense than that we were born of a loving God, an almighty Creator, who made us in His image by blessing us with the very same power to create all sorts of wonderful things?

According to the theory of evolution (and mind you, it is still a THEORY), all of nature — the millions upon millions of species of plants, flowers, insects, animals, birds, fish and reptiles — came about through happenstance. Everything — EVERYTHING — in our world is all just a grand coincidence.

Sure, that makes sense.

‘But, the scientists have proof!’ you say. ‘They teach these things in grade school!‘ You cite the work of the all-knowing sage Charles Darwin, author of The Origin of Species, who deduced that mankind actually evolved over millennia from other, lesser creatures. Hmmm… Here’s what else Darwin has to say about evolution:

The chief distinction in the intellectual powers of the two sexes is shown by man attaining to a higher eminence in whatever he takes up than women can attain, whether requiring deep thought, reason, or imagination, or merely the uses of the senses and hands.

In other words, men have “evolved” to a higher level of intellect, creativity and dexterity than women. Oh, and did I mention that Darwin also thought that whites are more “evolved” than blacks?

Evolution vs Intelligent DesignI’m getting all preachy here, but if you want to explore the topic more, erstwhile child star Kirk Cameron and evangelist Ray Comfort have put together an excellent and very funny video on Evolution vs. Intelligent Design. Just click on the image to the left here to watch it online.

Pressed for time? Here’s a ten-minute clip that hits the high points, if you’ll forgive the cruddy broadcast quality of YouTube:

Evolution is unproved and unprovable. We believe it only because the alternative is special creation, and that is unthinkable.” -Sir Arthur Keith, Physical Anthropologist and Anatomist (1866 – 1955)
