How Could It Have Just Happened? (continued)

A continuation of yesterday’s post.

(3) It is undeniable that change and development within various species of living things occur. For example, some varieties of species are becoming extinct; on the other hand, we occasionally see new strains forming within a species. But there is no evidence, not even in the geologic record, which supports the theory that one “kind” of living thing ever evolved from another “kind.” Rather, existing evidence supports the Bible’s declaration that God created each living creature “after his kind” (Gen 1:21, 24-25).
(4) Bible-believing Christians must also reject the theory called theistic evolution. This theory adopts most of the conclusions of naturalistic evolution, adding only that God started the evolutionary process. Such a theory denies the Biblical revelation that ascribes to God an active role in all aspects of creation. For example, every main verb in Gen. 1 has God as its subject, except for Gen. 1:12 (which fulfills the command of God in v. 11) and the recurring phrase “there was evening and there was morning.” God is not a passive supervisor of an evolutionary process; rather, He is the active Creator of all things (cf. Col. 1:16).

I am doing Dr. Jay Wile’s chemistry course. Read what he said at the end of one of the modules (chapters) in the book.

As I have pointed out before, there are many such incredible “coincidences” in nature. There are so many that I find it impossible for anyone who really understands physics or chemistry to believe that all this we are studying just came about by chance! The universe is too perfectly designed for that. From the smallest atom to the largest galaxy, incredible design features abound in our universe. These design features are the fingerprints of God, making all who objectively study the universe aware of His existence.
