The Religion of Evolution
16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. 17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. 18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.
Evolution is basically a religious philosophy. Cunningly devised fables, A fairytale for grownups. I am explaining to people that both creation and evolution are religious views of life upon which people build their particular models of philosophy, science or history.
It does not take much effort to demonstrate that evolution is not science but religion. Science, of course, involved observation, using one or more of our five senses (taste, sight, smell, hearing, touch) to gain knowledge about the world and to be able to repeat the observations.
Naturally, one can only observe what exists in the present.
1. No scientist was present over the suggested millions of years to witness the supposed evolutionary progression of life form the simple to the complex.
2. No living scientists was there to observe the first life forming in some primeval sea.
3. No living scientist was there to observe the Big Bang that is supposed to have occurred 10 or 20 billion years ago, nor the supposed formation of the earth 4.5 billion years ago (or even 10,000 years ago!).
4. No scientists was there--no human witness was there to see these events occurring. They certainly cannot be repeated today.
The problem is that most scientists do not realize that it is the belief (or religion) of evolution that is the basis for the scientific models (the interpretations, or stories) used to attempt an explanation of the present. Evolutionists are not prepared to change their actual belief that all life can be explained by natural processes and that no God is involved (or even needed). Evolution is the religion to which they are committed.
Christians need to wake up to this. Evolution is a religion; it is not a science!
Let’s explore the religion of evolution:
Darwinian atheist Michael Ruse has even acknowledged that evolution is their religion!
“Evolution is promoted by its practitioners as more than mere science. Evolution is promulgated as an ideology, a secular religion—a full-fledged alternative to Christianity, with meaning and morality. . . . Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today. 8
The theory of evolution is not really a theory: a theory is: “1. A set of statements or principles devised to explain a group of facts or phenomena, especially one that has been repeatedly tested or is widely accepted and can be used to make predictions about natural phenomena.”
Evolution cannot be tested nor has it ever been observed!!!!
Evolution doesn’t even meet the requirements of a hypothesis: “1. a proposition, or set of propositions, set forth as an explanation for the occurrence of some specified group of phenomena, either asserted merely as a provisional conjecture to guide investigation (working hypothesis) or accepted as highly probable in the light of established facts.”
