Well put! I agree we must remember our own lost condition before coming to faith in the atoning work of Jesus on the Cross. I heartily agree we must not trivialize the evolutionists' plight. For many of us who hold to a literal seven day Creation, the promotion of the theory of evolution in the media and in scientific circles is an ongoing irritation. The fact that those who promote this scientific fiction with little evidence to support their claims stands in contrast to the very procedures by which science itself makes progress - namely, a willingness to expose ideas to reasonable debate in the marketplace of ideas. Ultimately the naturalistic arguments to explain origins are totally inadequate to provide answers to the basic questions of life such as "Who am I"? "Where did I come from"? "What is the purpose of life itself"? Whatever the power of evolution to even address these questions, the fact is that those who believe in this idea must conclude they ultimately are left to believe that life is meaningless and we are all a product of random chance. This "blessing", which is the inevitable result of adhering to a materialistic, atheistic or even agnostic point of view provides an opportunity to engage the questions for which only the Gospel has the answers. As Scripture reminds us, "God has set eternity in our hearts".
