Why evolution is an atheist delusion when faced with Intelligent Design, Irreducible Complexity, and the structure of the universe
Darwinists want to eliminate God and convince themselves they are no longer bound by His authority. Thus giving atheists the freedom to live in sin. Students accept Darwin’s theory as fact, although Christian scientists debunked it.
1. Intelligent Design
Philip Johnson coined Intelligent Design (ID). It is the high mathematical improbability of a complex system—evolving from a less complicated approach. Although ID is pseudoscientific, its proponents are biologists, doctors, physicists, and scientists.
DNA: A dead end for evolutionists
A perfect example of ID is the mathematical complexity of DNA. Evolutionists who insist DNA is proof of evolution are the height of foolishness. The more scientists attempt to decipher DNA, the more they expose its complexity.
Fine-tuning of the cosmos
Our solar system has to be in perfect synergy to support life on earth. A minor deviation in the earth’s spin, tilt, gravitational constant, and even shape would make it unstable and unsuitable for life as we know it.
Law of probability on a single cell
A single cell holds 42 million protein molecules. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. The probability of an adequately folded chain of one-handed amino acids (joined by peptide bonds) to happen “by chance” is 10^164 chances.
In short, the law of probability computes it at about “three hundred trillion trillion trillion” chances, and this is just for a single chain.
Great is our Lord and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure.
2. Irreducible Complexity
Biochemist Michael Behe coined irreducible Complexity (IC). He defines it as a single system composed of several interacting parts. Removing any one of the parts causes the system to cease functioning effectively.
Over the last 25 years, through nanotechnology, scientists discovered a labyrinthine of turbines, miniature pumps, sliding clamps, complex circuits, rotary engines, and machines for copying, reading, and digital editing information in a living cell. [S. Meyer, Discovery Institute]
These circuits and machines depend on the coordinated function of many separate parts.
For example, bacterial cells are propelled by miniature rotary engines (flagellar motors) that rotate at speeds up to 100,000 rpm. As if a car company designed it. [S. Meyer]
Complexities of earth species
Homologous features of animal species on earth seem to support evolution. For example, evolutionists say humans came from monkeys. To prove it, there should be hundreds or thousands of missing skeletal links, at the least, to prove transition.
Certain animals like the Komodo Dragon’s saliva can kill other animals but never poison themselves or another Komodo. Bombardier beetle can defend itself by squirting boiling acid. It does it by mixing two chemicals separated into two compartments inside its body.
How is it possible for a bacteria or acid to generate without killing its host during the evolution process? The mathematical chances are just impossible. Unless, of course, they were created altogether with intelligent intention.
Humans are far more complex and couldn’t simply have evolved.
Absence of transitional fossils
Biogeography is the distribution of species and ecosystems in geographic space and geological time. Evolutionists use it to suggest things move to settle into place, thus sharing molecular structures and habits—proving evolution in motion.
However, it is not the same as evolving. What it proves is intelligent planning, not evolution.
In fact, despite countless millions of fossils discovered, there are NO transitional fossils ever found, and NO empirical proof exists that macro-evolution has ever happened. [Schwartz]
The evolution theory depends on the “great age of rocks” calculated by a “geologic timescale.” However, the measure was recently invalidated by laboratory experiments. [Irish Times; French Academy of Science, Geological Society, Fusion]
The Archaeopteryx hoax
Hailed as a link between reptiles and birds, the first of 13 Archaeopteryx fossils was discovered in 1861, two years after Origin of Species was published.
But it was a fossil forgery. All Archaeopteryx fossils are from an area in Germany where compsognathus fossils are common. The compsognathus was a tiny dinosaur, a bipedal theropod the size of a turkey.
Below is the image of the Archaeopteryx (left) and compsognathus (right) skeletons that are identical. The only difference is feather imprints pressed onto a cement medium brushed onto the fossil rock.
Its color and texture do not even match the fossil rock. In addition, the feathers appear pristine and laid flat. All known bird fossils show the feathers twisted and scrunched up, resulting in being buried in mud before fossilization.
Most Archaeopteryx fossils show forged etched lines suggesting feathers, again with the cement medium that stands out from the fossil rock background. In short, we were lied to and a famous book titled “Archaeopteryx the Primordial Bird. [A Case of Fossil Forgery]
The Cambrian Period
When Darwin published ‘On the Origin of Species‘ in 1859, the Cambrian Explosion (during the Cambrian period) was the most significant challenge to his position. [Answers in Genesis]
An “eruptive evolution” is inconsistent with the typical gradual pace of evolutionary change that Darwin claims. [Biologos]
Abiogenesis is an evolutionist’s oxymoron
Evolutionists agree that a paper clip, a non-living thing, is intelligently designed. Yet they insist that the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, and nervous systems are not.
Louis Pasteur disproved spontaneous generation, also called abiogenesis, is a theory that life arose from non-living matter. The maxim “Nothing comes from nothing,” argued by Paremenides, isn’t rocket science. Abiogenesis is loudly ridiculous.
Only an omnipotent being can create something from nothing—but that would include Jesus in the equation.
Through Jesus, all things were made; without Him, nothing was made that has been made.
“For this is what the Lord says, He who created the heavens. He is the God who formed the earth and made it. He established it and did not create it as a waste place but formed it to be inhabited. I am the Lord, and there is no one else.”
3. The Structure of the Universe
Many evolutionists agree the universe is expanding; thus, whatever little we know now is insignificant. What we’re sure of is that our solar system makes it a perfect place for our planet to thrive, demonstrating intelligent creation. [Genesis History]
- If the sun were closer to earth, we’d be toast.
- The moon is perfectly positioned. If the gravitational pull is less or stronger, it will disrupt the earth’s waters, flora, and fauna. The moon also helps shield us from asteroids.
- If the planets switched positions with Mars, the temperature would be -80 °F (60 °C). Mars has no rain or clouds, and humans won’t survive.
- Without the moon and planets like Jupiter, the earth will constantly be bombarded with asteroids and comets.
- If the earth spun faster, it would affect the wind producing erratic weather.
Assuming another dimension exists, the multiverse will be a big problem for “naturalists” (evolutionists). The constants (universal laws) could have been set to anything in the Big Bang, but the constants somehow led life to form.
For an “intelligent life” to happen at random is IMPOSSIBLE because the odds against “perfect fine-tuning” are astronomical — a multiverse theory solves it.
Instead of one universe with optimal constants, you have zillions each, with its laws. Anything is possible. How convenient for atheists to disprove God.
Today, more kids believe evolution is a fact, and a multiverse proves it. Marvel movies about a multiverse do NOT prove anything.
Even with the Weak or Strong Anthropic Principles, the complexities of the cosmos extrapolated by a “small brain,” no matter how genius, remains a “tiny brain.” The most straightforward answer can best explain the origin of life; God said so.
Even if cosmic inflation is actual, it requires a “leap of faith” to believe in a multiverse, physicist Paul Davies. The conundra on how the cosmos exist have a simple explanation. Occam’s razor would best apply, “God said so.”
UFO, Mars, Panspermia theory
UFO is perhaps the most popular evidence of evolution—even if there’s no real evidence. By assuming there are aliens, advocates can claim these beings have evolved into higher being while humans are still at a primitive stage.
Evolutionists poise Mars as a cosmic model for evolution. Assuming there are biosignatures on Mars, there are no energy sources—Mars is a dead planet. Even if H2O is present, space radiation is too high, and terraforming is impossible.
The panspermia theory supports that microorganisms could randomly appear anywhere in the universe, distributed by space dust, meteoroids, asteroids, comets, or planetoids. Thankfully, many scientists find the idea ridiculous.
Expanding universe: God continues to create
For atheists, an expanding universe means it is evolving, but for those who believe in the Judeo-Christian God, He continues to create. After all, He only rested on the seventh day. It did not say God stopped creating.
Scientists expected that the universe would have slowed down as time went on after an estimated 14 billion years since the big bang. However, the opposite is true. “The universe is not only expanding, but it is expanding faster and faster,” [Kathy Romer]
Dark matter: Something is causing the expansion
NASA scientists are baffled and said that the acceleration is something weird. “No one expected this, no one knew how to explain it, but something was causing it,” said Dr. Kathy Romer of NASA Dark Energy Survey through DailyMail.
Mars Propaganda: Scientists insist life is viable on Mars, even if temperatures can go as low as -195 °F. To postulate there was once life on Mars implies humankind is not unique; aliens are real; evolution is scientific; the story of Genesis is fiction. The truth is, Mars colonization is “stupid and non-sense,” says former astronaut Bill Anders.
The heavens tell of the glory of God, and their expanse declares the work of His hands.
The universe declares God is true, and His name is Jesus — He offers redemption from sin!
Christians have evidence that God is real because of the historical Jesus, miracles, and fulfilled prophecies. Jesus promised to save those who believe in Him from the coming wrath of God. The question is, are you willing to believe? (John 3:16)
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.
