Cause and Defect

The Theory of Evolution is constantly evolving. Advances being made in technology and archeology has put enormous pressure on evolutionary scientists to put up or shut up, and their responses have been less than satisfying, ranging from an elitist snobbery that exclaims, “Who are you to question ‘science,’” to downright meanness. “Richard Dawkins, the enraged evolutionist of Oxford University, put it this way: ‘It is absolutely safe to say that if you meet somebody who claims not to believe in evolution, that person is ignorant, stupid, or insane (or wicked, but I’d rather not consider that)’” (AP, 1989).

Stuart Kauffman, biologist and complexity theorist, argues in his book At Home in the Universe (Oxford University Press, 1995) that “stunning developments in molecular biology now make it possible to imagine actually creating these self-reproducing molecular systems — synthesized life. I believe that this will be accomplished within a decade or two.” Unfortunately for the evolutionist, here we are in 2017 and we are not only further from creating life but scientists continue to discover too many complexities in DNA to make the synthesis of life virtually or statistically possible. Nevertheless, we should never underestimate the faith of the evolutionist in random mindlessness (an irony if there ever was one) and these endless imaginations.

In pursuit of a mechanism to create life, one must ignore a basic truth: cause and effect. The Hebrew writer states: “For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God” (Hebrews 3:4, KJV). True scientists do not ignore the laws of physics, and for every knowable effect there must be a sufficient cause. The notion that a house is the result of a tornado in a lumberyard is as preposterous as believing our universe originated in a fortuitous explosion. This is not science.

To dismiss the obvious, objective conclusion about the origin of this universe, i.e., that there must be a Creator, is to totally ignore the evidence that speaks for a Cause in this effect. The product of this type of convoluted “thinking” has been pawned off on us as science for too long; ignoring cause and effect produces cause and defect.
