The Days in Genesis
Genesis 1:5
“And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.”
Silently, a huge, powerful form slides through the deep, cold, dark depths of the sea. The men aboard the nuclear submarine have seen neither sun nor daylight for months, yet each one knows what day...

Are All Scientists Evolutionists?

Romans 1:18-19
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.

Evolutionists sometimes challenge those of us who believe in creation with the words, "Just name one scientist who doesn't accept evolution!" Since many Christians are not familiar with the names of notable scientists, the evolutionist then says. "See! You can't name any because there aren't any!"

At one time, most scientists were committed to the understanding that there is a Creator. Then for a long time, it really did look as though practically all scientists had accepted evolution. However, that trend seems to be reversing. A poll published in the 1988 issue of the professional magazine, Industrial Chemist, tells us what scientists really believe.

According to this poll of professional scientists, one-fifth, or 20 percent, completely reject evolution. Half the scientists believe that it would have been impossible for man to have evolved from lower forms without some sort of supernatural intervention. And do scientists think that creation science is hurting science education? According to this poll, 40 percent say "No."

So evolutionism is not an unchallenged "fact" of science. It seems that scientists are divided over evolution - meaning that evolution has not made its case - even to the professionals! That should help a lot of Christians understand that science does not demand their acceptance of evolution. Christians should also see that the Bible offers an intelligent alternative to evolution.

Prayer: 
Dear Lord Jesus, You have known, firsthand, how those who reject You will often lie to themselves and others so that they seem right and You seem wrong. We see that today as well. Give those scientists who know You the wisdom and strength to share their witness with others. Amen.
