Richard Dawkins seems like an intelligent chap. He's a bestselling author and has appeared in a number of films. He's also got a charming British accent and appears to knows a lot about evolution. Let us quickly point out that we know someone else with a charming British accent, an author who has appeared in films, a man who knows a lot about evolution and who is a very intelligent fellow - Ian Taylor, host of the Creation Moments radio broadcast.
While there are many similarities, they couldn't be farther apart in their views on evolution.
So why is one of these intelligent men a strident evolutionist and the other an outspoken creationist? Why are they polar opposites? We suggest it has nothing to do with science but has everything to do with their spiritual understanding
Dawkins is an atheist while Taylor is a Christian. For Richard Dawkins, evolution is the only game in town because God does not exist in his worldview. He rejects the Bible and the account of creation given in its opening pages. Ian Taylor, on the other hand, believes in God and His Son, Jesus Christ. He also believes that the Bible's account of creation is true and is supported by good science.
So while there are thinkers on both sides of the issue - like Dawkins and Taylor - it is clear to us that the creation-evolution debate is not about science at all. It is fundamentally a dispute over the existence of God. Because if God exists, it is reasonable to believe He created the universe. But as Dawkins himself stated in The Blind Watchmaker: "Darwin made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist."
While Creation Moments does not agree with Dawkins on most matters, we do feel that this God-denying evolutionist is thinking clearly when he says the debate is really about spiritual matters.
