I enjoyed Karen's article, particularly as I had a similar journey of discovery.
Umpteen years ago i spent the night at the house of a friend, and that evening over supper the two of us got into an argument over evolution (an argument on my part, but gentle ministering on his).

I was totally irritated by his inability to see 'common sense'; by his intransigent clinging to archaic dogma; and because he was one of that strange breed ... a 'happy clapper'.

He left me with his assertion that there were no transient fossils and absolutely no evidence of the 'evolution' of the eye, as well as other organs.
An argument that I dismissed at the time because as the article mentions, evolution is a 'religion' and I simply 'believed' in it; but my friends last assertion kept ringing a bell in my brain and goading me.

Anyway to cut a long story short, over a number of years, of dissecting so called evolutionary 'facts', by primarily asking the very simple question "How?"

I found that I had painted myself into a corner from which there was no escape.
Whenever I was confronted by an assertion by an evolutionist, I asked that question, and tried to logically come to grips with it, by applying what I understood of such concepts as ... 'Production'; Design; 'Cause and Effect'; 'systems integration'; statistics,etc; and particularly, as I enjoyed casinos (at that time) I understood the laws of chance.

I realised too, that evolutionists are caught in a trap of their own making ... ' Linear Progression' … which precludes such concepts as 'systems' ... For example a lung does not operate without a diaphragm. A 'system' only functions when all components are in place. Because of 'linear progression' one component evolves before the other, thus in this example .. no oxygen, therefore no life.
I increasingly saw that their 'theory' is based on conjecture, because there are no supporting theories for such things as the formation of the first amino-acids; proteins, first DNA, first cells etc. ... just conjecture. (I could go on and on)

The corner that I was firmly backed into, confronted me with the choice of just two options. - "Chance" or a "Creator"; I had eliminated chance, and so was faced with the inexorable, and scary, certainty of a "Creator". ... and so began the next leg of a long and sometimes painful journey of a self-willed, obstinate, and arrogant sinner.

However the Lord was walking that journey with me, and today I acknowledge him as my saviour. Amen
