Today's Creation Moment

Unnatural Selection?
Luke 12:33
"Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth...
Just about every public school textbook once included the example of the peppered moth. The moth is used as a prime example of natural selection. Supposedly, as the trees in the English countryside...

It would take a book-length blog posting to cover all the reasons why we believe you are mistaken in your comments about the Bible, atheism and the purpose of Creation Moments' mission.

When you say it doesn't matter if "yom" means a 24-hour day or a long period of time, we feel it would be like saying it doesn't matter if oxygen was present in the early earth when life purportedly sprang into existence from non-living matter. Just as evolutionary science has data to work with, so does creation science. We don't expect you to accept that, but we hope you understand why we believe that BOTH evolutionists and creationists need to deal with data as honestly and accurately as possible.

We feel it's the interpretation of the data that separates us. And that interpretation of the data rests on the assumptions we make. Young Earth Creationists accept the Bible truths that (1) there is a God and (2) He created the heavens and earth in six literal days. Most if not all evolutionists do not accept either one of these statements.

The question is: which side is supported by the evidence? And this is where interpretation enters the picture. Evolutionists and creationists will look at the same data and come up with different interpretations, based on their preconceptions and the data they already accept as true.

That's why we're not surprised that you would say that evolution is not in any danger scientifically. From your standpoint, the evolution confirms it. But as we look at the same data, we see insurmountable problems and feel that evolution is in a lot of trouble. Now, are you saying that evolution has no weaknesses or difficulties? We see many, many weaknesses. In fact, some of the difficulties - like the fossil record, the Cambrian explosion, the fine-tuned universe, the existence of molecular machines at the cellular level, and the incredibly vast amount of information stored in the DNA molecule - to be powerful arguments against evolution.

We're not saying there are no difficulties with our position, but those problems are being investigated by creation scientists and those in the Intelligent Design movement. In the end, we're confident that evolution will someday be proven to be false. However, we do not believe this conclusion will be reached in the immediate future. There are just too many evolutionists who have a stake in the matter and who will do everything in their power to keep its opponents from participating in the discussion.
