Before We Get Started:
We have had some recent and good discussion regarding science, evolution and evolutionary theory on this blog. This will likely be my last post in the series. The other posts can be located as follows:
Until recently even the radicals have been fairly behaved and welcomed. Those whom we've come to know as regulars are yet welcomed, and new individuals willing to respectfully engage are certainly encouraged to provide their insights, but the charlatans that think that ad hominems are basis for debate, or that can't read what is directly addressed, can crawl back into the pit of primordial slime from which they believe they have arrived. Those individuals are certainly not welcomed. But for the rest, atheist and theist alike, who simply love true dialogue and debate, and want to get to the truth of the issues, let us press on.
150 Years Of Deceit
As we run headlong into the 150th anniversary of the Magnum Opus of Charles R. Darwin's "On The Origin Of Species By Means Of Natural Selection Or The Preservation Of Favored Races In The Struggle For Life (Yes, Favored Races, namely and more specifically them that are WHITE- and they continue to say he wasn't racist-go figure!)
There is a WHY to life and that why is not in natural processes but in Jesus Christ! As Christians we are becoming equipped to both understand evolutionary arguments and also put down evolutionary rhetoric and dogmas which have made their rounds, deceiving many into believing that both man and ape share what is called a common ancestor. In fact the Darwinian evolutionary theory of common descent is that all biological beings share this common ancestor, and over time, through process of natural selection, mutation and what is otherwise considered blind process, there have been branches upon branches of species and phyla created to produce this wonderful world of diversity and what we call life.
According to the atheistic evolutionary faithful, in the end man has no need for God as God is a development of the creative ability and capacity of man. In fact in the Darwinian world, God is bad, a concept devised by the clever seeking to hold man's mind captive and keep him away from the truth that we are simply chemical biological, reproductions of natural selection.
Thankfully, we do not all believe that garbage. I am one especially that doesn't find consuming the "trash" of Darwinism amusing in the least bit. In fact, for a number of reasons, most of which have been discussed on this blog, it takes an unbelievable leap into a blind chasm to believe Darwin's view of the world. With Darwinism, one must first believe that all of what we see came from nothing but chemicals in a pool of primordial soup in an electro charged environment over millions of years, and that somehow, out of that all life sprung up to what we see today.
Fact: Without DNA there is no self-replication within the cell. Without self replication there can be no natural Selection. This creates a circular box for evolutionists as they cannot use natural selection to explain the origin of DNA as would be required under their theory.
In other words the Neo-Darwinists would like us to believe that impersonal and unreasonable brute force of blind, random and naturally selected processes (which could not have started itself as a process) somehow hones species over time to create beings ultimately which have the ability to reason, think, communicate and assign value, such as man.
God Has Made The Whole Play!
I encourage all Christians to get envolved in sharing the truth and God's word regarding this dogma. Anyone can learn the concepts to speak to evolutionists and raise the level of dialogue. This Sistah, makes me so very proud. All I say, keep up the good work and make it even better next time.
Natural Selection The Concept:
"It may metaphorically be said that natural selection is daily and hourly scrutinising, throughout the world, every variation, even the slightest; rejecting that which is bad, preserving and adding up all that is good; silently and insensibly working, whenever and wherever opportunity offers, at the improvement of each organic being in relation to its organic and inorganic conditions of life. We see nothing of these slow changes in progress, until the hand of time has marked the long lapse of ages, and then so imperfect is our view into long past geological ages, that we only see that the forms of life are now different from what they formerly were. ~ Darwin, C. R. 1860. 'On the origin of species by means of natural selection, or the preservation of favoured races in the struggle for life.' London: John Murray. 2nd edition, second issue. pg.84
Natural Selection The god Who Is A Force“If I were convinced that I required such additions [new powers and attributes and forces] to the theory of natural selection, I would reject it as rubbish.” ~ Charles Darwin, Life and Letters, 2:6.
“the Devil’s gospel”~ Charles Darwin, The Correspondence of Charles Darwin, vol. 8, 1860, ed. Frederick Burkhardt (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1993), 316.
“My deity.” ~ Charles Darwin, Life and Letters, 2:165.
The force behind Darwinian evolutionary common descent is a process known as natural selection. It is quite interesting that according to Carroll Lane Fenton, in 'Darwin and the theory of evolution'  [Girard, Kansas: Haldeman-Julius], that Darwin himself published the theory of natural selection while he himself was yet a believer in "special creation". Further, so far as theism or God belief was concerned, Darwin records that it “was strong in my mind…when I wrote the Origin of species; and it is since that time that it has very gradually with many fluctuations become weaker.” 'Charles Darwin, The Autobiography of Charles Darwin': 1809–1882, ed. Nora Barlow (New York: W. W. Norton, 1958), 93. This displays the utter apostasy and confusion of heart that was the birthplace of many of the scientific ideals that Darwin set forth.
According to the proponents and followers of this theory, natural selection only preserves favorable variations within species, while conveniently destroying unfavorable variations within species, and sometimes eliminating species all together. For evolutionists natural selection becomes god crossing boundaries and problems of the slow development of complicated organs like the eye and heart. In Darwinian theory natural selection allows organs to change their use over time potentially leaving vestigial organs (a theory which has been proven to be false) and preserving and modifying the "good" organs to aid the survival of the fittest species. In other words, this is a very violent process and one that is not to be reasoned with. As atheist James Randi states natural selection is a process filled with "biological experimentation" resulting in the beauty that we see and continue to see today.
According to Biology Online.org natural selection si defined as follows:
"A process in nature in which organisms possessing certain genotypic characteristics that make them better adjusted to an environment tend to survive, reproduce, increase in number or frequency, and therefore, are able to transmit and perpetuate their essential genotypic qualities to succeeding generations."
Atheistic evangelist Richard Dawkins preaches that the gospel of Natural Selection is a sort of middle ground between design and chance processes. He says this:
