Evolution is not scientific fact, it is a theory

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: Let’s talk about Charles Darwin, his birthday last week. Evolution is what he brought forth in this world it was a evolutionary theory; just take a moment as we begin our discussion and explain this theory.

DD: Well certainly Jimmy. It’s not that he originated evolution, he popularized it. It had already been around for a while and the time was right for it to take over. You know evolution is I see it as a counter fit. It just goes down the road of talking about origins and how things develop aside from scripture. And not to put down those who favor it they’re not dummies it’s a whole intellectual area, it’s wrong. It counters scripture but it is very inviting to people who do turn their back on supernatural creation. The idea is that life some how spontaneous originates and then over time mutations occur to life and it changes and improves and then natural selection sorts it out. It’s quite the theory. You can see how people get swallowed up by it, of course there’s major problems all along the way.

We all have the same data Jimmy, it’s just different interpretations. For us we clearly see creation and the other side continues to champion the idea of spontaneous accidental changes over time. I might say one of the greatest evidences we have in the creation viewpoints is the fossil record. Darwin himself realized that there were problems with fossils because we don’t have all of these intermediate steps; the missing links are still missing. As far back as you go back to when fossils formed during the flood we see distinct kinds of separate categories that God established at the beginning.

The time question is another area. I think there’s strong evidence that the earth, the moon and the universe is not as old as they say and that rules out evolution right away. Even if you have lots of time of course it still wouldn’t happen. But good evidence for a recent supernatural creation.

JD: A true scientist Dr. Don DeYoung with the Biblical approach to our existence in this world today as compared to the theory of evolution.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution is exactly that, a theory. God’s account of creation as recorded in Genesis 1 is based upon better science than the evolutionary theory. Both by the way must be believed and understood by faith. However, that is faith in God’s word which is truth in history, science and prophecy.
